Adult coloring books are all the rage – and for a good reason. In our hectic, high-tech times, there’s something comforting and calming in doing something creative. And for those of us who are artistically challenged (yes, me), coloring gives us an outlet.
My talented writer friend Lisa Bogart also happens to be an artist, so I was delighted when Drawn from the Heart was published. Lisa’s fanciful art entices you to pick up colored pencil or ink pen and start playing! But Drawn from the Heart is so much more than a coloring book. A devotion is paired with each coloring page, so the art becomes more than mere relaxation – it becomes a time to meditate on God’s Word and principles. Lisa’s writing encourages you to find the holy in the creative. After all, we’re created in the image of our Creator God – to create!
I purchased two copies of this book – one for myself and one for my artistic daughter, Anna. This past week I’ve been enjoying time each day in the childlike delight of coloring. Anna has also been enjoying the book, and she agreed to share one of her creations. I’ve always loved her artistic eye – although we’re not sure where it came from on the family tree!
Lisa has kindly offered to give away a copy of Drawn from the Heart! If you’d like to be entered in the drawing, please leave a comment below about your favorite creative outlet – or lack thereof 🙂 Drawing ends Thursday, April 14, 2016 at midnight Pacific Time. I’ll announce the winner here on Friday, April 15. US only please.
