Joyful Inspirations Coloring Book by Robin Mead

Coloring books are popular today, encouraging us to slow down our frantic pace and relax. This coloring book allows readers to do that and be inspired by Scripture verses and quotes.

I really liked these illustrations. I had to concentrate on the intricate design and the colors I chose, taking my mind off of any pressing matters. I really liked that there was a Scripture on the page too. I could concentrate on the truth of that verse while I was coloring.

There are a variety of illustrations, from city scenes to gardens. There are some that are just fun, like swimming fish and (potentially) colorful butterflies.

Here is a page I colored and part of the one next to it, just waiting for my artistic talents. I appreciated the Scripture on the page. I could focus on it while coloring.

I recommend this book to those looking for a coloring book that is both relaxing and inspiring. It would be great for budding artists too as Mead has added tips for coloring. She helps potential artists choose the medium (pencils, crayons, etc.) and gives suggestions for mixing colors and ways to fill in shapes. This is a fun and inspiring book all around.

My rating: 4/5 stars.
