Using Bible verses, meditations, prayers and coloring times, Hovsepian hopes to help the reader restore their soul and find refreshment.
Opening each devotion with a Bible verse, she often includes personal snippets from her own life to illustrate (no pun intended) her point of the devotion. And her drawings are simply lovely — from more basic designs to extremely complicated patterns. Most drawings also contain some sort of text or verse that tie together the devotion and image.
This is a great book to give you a quick but meaningful reminder of God’s love for us. And she always ties in her text with the drawing, allowing you to prayerful participate in your coloring experience. For example, at the end of the devotion accompanying the “be filled with joy” drawing, she writes, “As you color in the ‘water’ on the next page, ask God for what you need and let Him feel you with joy.”
She also includes a few blank pages at the end of the book for those who want to try their hand at illustrating.
This is a truly lovely book that you can come back to time and time again and have your soul restored.
Five stars out of five.
