Review: Live Free: An Adult Coloring Book by Margaret Feinberg



Review: Live Free: An Adult Coloring Book

I had to do this, just had to---review a coloring book.  Sounded too easy.  It wasn’t all that easy really, for me anyway.  Seems like the idea is to get a person to just be still for a time.  The one thing that I find so hard to do is be still.  I didn’t realize how true that was until I tried to do this.  
The drawings are wonderful. Some are more intricate than others, but all of them act as frames for an encouraging verse of Scripture that help focus on living free, or an affirmation of a believer’s position in Christ.  The paper weight is good for most forms of color application.  The opposing page is lined and can be used for thoughts or whatever doodling might help focus a person’s thoughts.  It’s your coloring book, after all.  Color on!

Feinberg provides a guide for how she sees the coloring book being used.  The intent is that “you’ll unleash the creative talents God has given you.  As you color and sketch, you’ll whisper the words, commit them to memory, and muster the courage to begin living free.” (6)

Although I was not able to settle into this coloring book like I’d hoped, I did find that tiny bit of time refreshing and relaxing.  Try it.  You will discover a few things along the way as you decide which color to place where.

I received this book from the publisher in return for a review.
