About the Book:
Create and Relax While Meditating on the Freedom God Brings.

Coloring is more than just child's play--it's a creatively fulfilling way to slow yourself down in order to refresh your mind and soul. And in Live Free, it can also help you connect with the loving God who unburdens you to be all you were meant to be. Highlighting verses from the Bible that focus on the freedom that comes with knowing who you are in Christ, this beautiful book presents an uplifting message in a fun and creative format. Drink deeply from Scripture as you color the intricate artwork and meditate on the freedom God wants you to experience in your life. Space is included for reflections, prayers, or even doodles.

Creativity and freedom go hand in hand, and as you experience Christ's freedom you'll be inspired to create like never before. And when you do, you can even share your art with others by posting photos on social media or by cutting out the pages to save for yourself. Gather your crayons, markers, or any other favorite coloring supplies and start creating!
Mrs. Bookworm's Review:
Unlike my daughters, who love the intricately detailed illustrations of many adult coloring books, I felt too intimidated by the complex designs.  Live Free contains some simpler picture designs that coordinate with selected verses of scripture from the Bible (which I love).  I also enjoyed the journal area (a place to record prayer, reflections, journal, doodle, etc.).

The time spent coloring the designs give me a lot of time to pray, meditate on scripture, and really immerse myself into God's Word.  It also gives me a chance to explore my creative side --expressing myself through coloring the designs.

I'm looking forward to getting Margaret Feinberg's Live Loved and Live Fearless coloring books soon!

I'm glad you enjoyed the coloring book, Mom!  I really need to pick up one of these adult coloring books ... I saw some Star Wars and other fandom-themed ones that caught my eye too!  Do you have any suggestions on  titles to get?  Comment below! =)

  1. I love the coloring book trend! I'm pretty picky about the designs I'm willing to spend time on, but I think overall it's great when art becomes more prevalent in society.
