My Review:

As a child I absolutely loved coloring, whether it was a pre-designed coloring book, or drawing my own creations. Even as an adult, I have been known to pick up a coloring book and package of crayons or pencil crayons and sit and use coloring as a stress release time. There is something so incredibly peaceful and relaxing about coloring and in the last few years, the insurgence of coloring books for adults has been HUGE. There has so many coloring books on the market, but I especially love faith-based ones that allow me to meditate on the verses and color at the same time. 

This most recent release from author Margaret Feinberg is a wonderful piece of art! With high quality paper, it can be used with several different mediums like pencil crayons, crayons, markers and even water colors. I have even made it part of my "mommy time out"  to pick up a coloring book, markers, and spend at least a half hour to just be and relax. 

Live Loved would be a wonderful gift for any woman in your life, and even for yourself!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
