Restore My Soul: A Coloring Book Devotional Journey

“Why would I want to color? Coloring is for kids!” exclaimed my 84-year old mother when I asked her if she had heard about the latest trend in adult relaxation. I must admit that a year or so ago, that would have probably been my response. At least out loud, that is. Inside, though? Well, I never lost the joy of coloring. I was an elementary school librarian for 19 years, and every week, at some point, I was coloring with children. I never thought about the fact that other adults enjoyed it, too. But, look at the craze today! Ann-Margret Hovsepian has jumped right into that adult coloring book phenomenon with her newest book, Restore My Soul: A Coloring Book Devotional Journey. Hovsepian is both author and illustrator of the double whammy of thought provoking devotionals paired with original artwork begging to have the lines filled in.

Each unique ready-to-color page is frame-worthy, and the sturdy paper for each page helps to make that a possibility. There’s even a “Create Your Own Coloring Page” section for the budding artist. Restore My Soul is the perfect book to get you started on your journey of adult coloring. You might discover a newfound hobby, and you will definitely read about and ponder God’s message to you with each devotional.

I received a complimentary copy of Restore My Soul from Tyndale House for review purposes.

Countdown to Elianna!
