  1. This coloring book is wonderful! I work at a church in Ruston, LA and it was my turn to bring the staff devotional at our weekly meeting. I wanted to do something different and meaningful. I brought the coloring sheet and mediation on creation. I read the meditation aloud then turned on the song “God of Wonders.” Everyone began to color but I wasn’t sure if it was having an impact. Then, one of them whispered, “This is my favorite devotional ever.” Once the song was over I closed the devotional time and encouraged them to continue coloring on their own time. Instead, they continued to color while discussing the business we needed to cover. Staff meeting ended and they asked for more music! They stayed until they had finished! It’s been two months and they are still talking about how much they loved coloring together. Some have even hung their pictures on their office doors. It’s amazing how something so simple could be, not only relaxing, but able to help our staff connect on a new level as we contemplated our place with God in His incredible creation. Thank you for this ministry!
