I Liked It!

Words of Grace by Jacqui Grace and Dee Arrand is a delightful devotional and Scriptural coloring book for adults, teens, young adults, and children! Not only does this lovely coloring book boast in a wonderful array of whimsical designs, but it offers daily devotionals and inspirational quotes that are sure to tug at the strings of your heart.

NOTE: I received a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of this review, it was not required of me to give a positive review, but to solely express my honest thoughts and opinions of this book, which I have done.

WHAT I LIKED

thumbsup_purple_2016 What I love most about this delightful coloring book is how the authors and/or artists purposely incorporated parts of Scripture into the actual design(s). Not only did this serve in providing a deeper understanding of the intended devotional, but it helped place perspective and solidarity on the proposed message. My daughters and I have thoroughly enjoyed delving into the themes and pertinent questions this darling little coloring book has posed.

Which again, aided in placing a clear focus on the devotion and inspirational quotes – it’s a perfect balance, to say the least.

 

THINGS THAT MADE ME GO HMMM. . .

unsure-smiley-face-md My only quibble with the coloring book is the low-quality paper it was printed on. That is to say, should you choose to use markers or gel pens, expect for the colors to bleed through the pages. This was unfortunate owing to the back pages of the actual design(s) which follow the next day’s devotional and because my daughters chose to use markers early in the pages of this book, it was difficult to read some of the words on the devotion. This more of a color pencil coloring book for sure!

 

AFTERTHOUGHTS 

Still and all, Words of Grace is sure to keep you thoroughly entertained! Needless to say, it’s also a wonderful way to inspire young children and teens about God’s love for them and His faithfulness to them.
