Whether you choose coloured pencils, water colours, crayons or smelly markers, there’s something about colouring. You know it and I know it. A new craze hit the world by force last year — adult colouring books. At first, I thought it was all so silly… but then I bought one and can now fully understand the concept.
Colouring is therapeutic.
Colouring quiets the mind.
Colouring is… awesome. Sorry, it’s true. Don’t knock it until you try it folks.
I bought a book because I wanted to share it with my 9 year old daughter and colouring is something we absolutely love to do together as a team. It’s part of our quality time together.
But trying to find a book that would help her grow in her walk in Jesus was dang near impossible.
So, I bought this one…
It wasn’t exactly what I had wanted . I want our quiet time to be time spent absorbing the love found in God’s presence so, I went searching and I found a few more online that I wanted to share in case you were interested in getting all up in this adult colouring book trend.

I love adult coloring books because they are such a stress reliever especially after a very busy week! I think it’s nice to have one for Christians as well. This is such a good list and it also doubles as gift ideas!
I will have to share this! My friends are really into coloring books and I know one mom that may love this!
