Hey everybody! Hope you’re having a wonderful week thus far! Just wanted to tell you all about my new coloring book that will, prayerfully, give you a chance to relax, meditate on God’s Word, and explore your creative side as well!
First, here’s the video:
Secondly, let me tell you a little something about the process for creating this book. I am NOT much of an artist. I mean, I have had my good-drawing days. However, when it comes to creating digital art, I don’t know about all that. What I did learn came by watching a webinar and practicing what I learned until I actually came across some designs that I thought were kinda cute. Some of the artwork in this book I purchased outright, some I created with a little technical know-how. A few weeks after watching the video, I had a coloring book on my hands.
That brings me to a point that I’d like to share with you: It’s never too late to learn and try new things! I’ve written 40+ traditional books. This is my first coloring book and, actually, I had a wonderful time creating it. Finding the pictures, researching the scriptures, learning how to create the template for printing a book with images that stretch all the way to the edge of the page was a new experience for me. A little daunting at first, but once I got the hang of it, I was good to go.
Honestly, I think there are many things in life like this. You just have to (prayerfully) try it and see what happens. You can sit around wondering, “Hmmm…what would happen if…” for months, years, or decades. Or you can at least start learning and trying it today. And a year from now, you might be saying, “Wow! I’m so glad I did that!” or (at worst), “Well, I tried it and it didn’t go as I thought it would. But at least now I know. I may try it again and do something different next time.”
There’s a scripture that comes to mind for me. (Isn’t it neat how there’s a Word for EVERYTHING we face in life?)
He who watches the wind [waiting for all conditions to be perfect] will not sow [seed], and he who looks at the clouds will not reap [a harvest]. Ecclesiastes 11:4, AMP
Good news: All conditions and circumstances do not have to be perfect in order for us to move forward and pursue or God-given dreams and purposes. In fact, it’s not even a requirement that you know everything before you get started. Everything you need has already been supplied in Christ (Ephesians 1:3) and is simply waiting to be revealed as you go.
I hope that you’ll enjoy this coloring book during the moments when you’re NOT busy pursuing your God-given dream directly. (This coloring book is for relaxing, not distracting-LOL!) It’s available on Amazon for only $8.99. Makes a great gift for Mother’s Day, for those who are homebound, or for anyone who wants to use their down-time to refuel with something positive.
I’m glad to be a part of your life and help edify you in the Lord! Be blessed!
