Live Loved provides an opportunity for you to pull away from the hustle and bustle of life to pray, journal, and unleash your creative gifts as you marinate in the truth of God’s fierce love for you.
Color and doodle and learn to live loved as you craft God’s Word into your heart.
I have to admit that I like this book, but also think that it is MADE for women. I was commenting to my husband at how colouring books can be made in different ways, and due to the images in the book, it seemed a book made just for women.
I like the scriptures chosen, they are good ones to ponder and that's what the heart of this book is. Giving scripture to ponder on, as you idle away some hours being creative. It's a good concept that should serve it's market well.. christian women who like to relax by creatively colouring. I am hopeful that Ms. Feinberg might make a book that would speak to adult men as well (because I know there are some other there who would colour alongside their spouses).
I like that it gives a page alongside the colouring page, where one can write down the ponderings of one's heart. The dotted lines encourage the written word as opposed to the drawn word (a good thing that).. it's good to have both right? I really like that it is beside the picture being coloured and not on the backside as it really encourages that reflection. The pages are thick enough to handle marker as well as pencil crayon.
If I could, I would make the font different. I found loopy and narrow font difficult to colour well. The font is used throughout the book. I found having a VERY sharp pencil crayon helped with the small loops, but the tip of my markers simply couldn't make the cut.
Mind you though, my 10 year old didn't understand the issues I was having and said "it would be easy to do that mom, want me to do it for you"? So it could just be my older eyes messing with me. :)
I am supposing though that my frustration would be alleviated by having different fonts on different pages. Adds more variety eh?
