$ 16.99
Celebrate creativity in this meditative journey for the word-weary. Introducing a quiet, sometimes-playful, always meditative way to engage with God through color, creativity and prayer. At Play in God’s Creation is a collection of Daniel Sorensen’s evocative, searching drawings, integrated seamlessly with Tara M. Owens’ brief prompts and intentions. You’ll go on a journey through dark, arched passageways and spacious open fields, meeting God even as He slips between stained glass and sycamores. Color and contemplate, connect, explore and embellish. What a beautiful way to speak with—and listen to—the Divine.

Truly beautiful!

I have purchased several of these books as gifts to family members who like to color. Everyone appreciates the beautiful pictures and the uplifting sentiments.

Better than expected!

Beautiful pages!


going through each creative and delicate design/art is like "sipping" through each prayer or praise! Thank you for your generosity.


A beautifully created book with both simple and intricate drawings to color in, and inspiring sayings and quotes. :-)
