Book Review - Promises for You Coloring Devotional by Faithgirlz

Book Synopsis
Take time to enjoy God’s Word and color images from his beautiful world. In this 40-day coloring devotional filled with unique illustrations and patterns, you will read about God’s unchanging promises through NIrV Bible verses, paired with detailed line art. Each page is printed on high-quality, thick paper stock that won’t bleed through. And when you’re finished coloring with markers, metallic pens, or colored pencils, you will have a chance to reflect and journal about each promise from Scripture, and find inspiration for every day. Perfect for girls 8-12.

My Review
Promises for You Coloring Devotional: 60 Days Discovering God's Hope and Love is a wonderful devotional book with coloring pages.  It is designed for girls ages 8 - 12.  

This is a well made hardcover book by Zondervan (ZonderKidz).  It begins with a presentation page with book instructions.  Then there are 60 days of devotions and coloring.  Each day has a coloring page followed by a page with a Bible verse and a journaling prompt.  For instance:  "What are your hopes and dreams?  Jot them down on the lines below.  As you do so, think about the fact that God knows the hopes you hold in your heart.  He wants you to dream big, and he wants you to trust him with plans.  Because only God can make them come true.  When you put your faith in God, he fills you with hope even greater than you can imagine" (first devotion in book).

I think this is such a positive and empowering book for girls.  I particularly love the combination of coloring and journaling with a question prompt each day.

The book is well made with fun designs to color -- most are intricate and will take a bit of time, all great for relaxing and thinking.  Although the book is a hardcover, the coloring pages flatten out for coloring if you rub a hand gently but firmly along the open pages before coloring.

I recommend this fun and positive coloring devotional for older elementary and middle grade girls.  I think they will find it both enjoyable and thought provoking!

I received a copy of this book from BookLook Bloggers.
