Ya’ll I love fellow Christ follower, author and bible study teacher Margaret Feinberg. She is deep, playful, personal and so down to earth. Her ability to take scripture and teach in such a succint way has drawn me in from the beginning. I’ve learned a lot about my God through her teaching. This summer I did her Fight Back with Joy study from home in my hospital bed with a neighbor and a friend from church who recently lost her husband. It was such a blessing to all of us. I figured if I was ever tempted to lose my joy it might be while laying flat on my back for the Summer. One particular days homework had a major impact on my life and I still turn to that page to reference throughout my week. Such a great study.
So when I went online to check out her sale this week I was so excited to see an Adult Coloring Book!! I love to doodle and I love color. I’m not sure if it’s because I might have ADD (I don’t really know if I do but I consider growing up doing incessant flips on our couch and memorizing scripture while standing on my head as possible indicators?) or what but I LOVE to scribble while listening. It really helps me to retain what I’m hearing. Thankfully I don’t do that headstand thing anymore because I’m pretty sure I’d break my body in half. This adult coloring book is designed to help you focus on God’s Truths of his love. So while you’re coloring a scripture there’s also a doodle page across from it. I LOVE IT!!!! I really am thinking about ordering another one and taking it up to the nursing home to work on a page with some of the folks there. How fun – to color with old people and talk about God’s love. What a great open door for some divine conversation.
Okay, so my family doesn’t know yet I ordered myself a coloring book. I’m not exactly sure of the response I will get. HA!!!! Oh, and I also got a t-shirt that says, “God bless this hot mess.” Ahaha! I love it so much. I’m wearing it now and about to go color about God’s love. I’m a happy camper.
Have a great weekend friends!
Linking with Barbie this weekend.
