Book Review - Whatever is Lovely: A Coloring Book for Reflection and Worship

This post contains an affiliate link.

I have always loved coloring. Even in college, and as a young adult, I had a few special coloring books I'd still color in. More recently, I've taken advantage of free printable complex coloring sheets on the internet for myself and my older children. I have to admit that I am adoring this new trent of coloring books for adults, especially those that combine Scripture and uplifting phrases with coloring designs.

I was delighted to have the opportunity to review Whatever Is Lovely: A Coloring Book for Reflection and Worship! (affiliate link)  My children were excited, too. I'm trying to get them their own special coloring books, so they don't steal mine away.

Whatever is Lovely contains a variety of coloring pages: floral, geometric, animals, and hearts. Every single page has a quote or Scripture on it, with attributions. I like the variety of pictures in this book, as opposed to the books that have pictures of all one style.

This is just one of the pages in the book. I started with it, since it seemed less complex than a few of the pictures, but I was surprised how long it takes to actually color in each little flower and leaf. I haven't had time to sit down and just color uninterrupted, so I'm working on it in bits and pieces.

These are just a few of the pages I'm looking forward to coloring later. I especially love the deer picture! There's an elephant picture in the book that has a different style, that I also adore! I have hours of relaxing coloring fun ahead of me!

Waterbrook Multnomah has even created a spotify play list that you can listen to while coloring. The link is in the back of the book. It is full of encouraging Christian music! I didn't even have a spotify account, but had to get one for this music.

The only thing I don't like about this book is that the pages aren't perforated. So if you want to remove the page to give to someone or frame, you have to carefully cut it out of the book. Similarly, if you want to try watercolor paints in your book, you'd need to remove the page, by cutting it out. Perforations are the ONLY thing I'd change about this book. I love everything else about Whatever is Lovely!
