I bought the book knowing I would be taking it on a 8 day silent retreat. It helped me focus my mind on my prayer life throughout the retreat. The images are beautiful, and brought a sense of peace while I colored.
When coloring I feel that I am exploring God's creation. The illustrations are very nice and reading the text is good. Coloring in this book is a healthy activity.
This is so much more than a coloring book. Read through the contemplative prayer suggestions and find yourself in a whole new prayer experience. I did not expect the joys of a coloring in a prayerful manner. Embrace the suggestions in the intro and you just might find yourself feeling more peaceful, more inspired and more grateful.
The coloring book is beautiful. The first thing I noticed was the scavenger hunt for the different designs. It became a family affair that took us more than an hour.
The most inspiring phrase for me was that prayer is a journey, not a destination. I had never thought about it like that. Many of the phrases in this book inspire contemplation even after I finish coloring the picture.
The drawings vary from easy ones I can complete in an hour to highly intricate designs that take several sittings. I highly recommend this coloring book to everyone.
I recently got into coloring; i,bought this book.for myself. It is just beautiful. I feel like I am praying while I am coloring. It is very relaxing.
