Live Free by Margaret Feinberg
Ahh, another coloring book. Makes me happy. This one is unique in that with each coloring page there is also a page for journaling, doodling, or whatever you feel like doing. There is also a Bible verse for each page and the point is that while you are coloring, you are to be meditating and memorizing the verse on the page and then writing down any reflections or thoughts that come to mind. It's really a good idea, a good way to relax, destress, and still keep your thoughts from going aimlessly in directions that accomplish nothing.
The pictures look like a lot of fun to color, a lot of flowers which is down my alley. It makes me want to go buy some pencil crayons or some other coloring markers, but that's a whole other story.
The one con I see with the book is the binding is too stiff. It doesn't feel like the type of book that is going to lay down well so that you can color in it. I think you will either have to be very rough and "break it in" good or you will constantly be contending with a book that wants to close. That is a little disappointing. It needs a softer cover so it will lay open better.
However, I look forward to being able to color in it. Of course, being the person I am, I am sure my other coloring book will have to be completed first. I probably should just will this one to Amber right away, but I want to color in it so bad. It looks like way more fun than my current coloring book.
This book was given me by Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
