Have you tried an adult coloring book? Live Free: An Adult Coloring Book by Margaret Feinberg would be a wonderful way to start.
Live Free is a coloring book, journal, prayer resource, Bible study, and stress-reliever all in one. The beautiful designs in this book are accompanied by full-page lined journaling sections with Scripture verses that are repeated in the facing color-in designs. The theme of Live Free is "Who am I?" This theme is explored through the book with reflections on topics like:
- You are a new creation.
- You are God's child.
- You are chosen.
- You are God's friend.
- You are children of the light.
The heavy-weight cardstock pages are suitable for exploring a variety of art mediums such as colored pencils, markers, and even paint. The author encourages users to get creative and not worry about staying in the lines, but rather to explore and meditate on the verses as their inner artist flourishes.
Most of the designs depict items found in nature, like flowers, birds, and butterflies, as well as some geometric designs with lots of details. A really nice feature of this book is the size of the designs--they are detailed without being so intricate that they would be difficult to see if you have trouble focusing on tiny print.
Overall, Live Free offers many nice extras that aren't found in other adult coloring books, and it provides a fun way to delve deeper into Bible study and reflection.
