Picturing Heaven: A Coloring Devo Review

**Book received for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own. 


It's no secret by now that I love a good coloring book... except for maybe a good coloring devotional that is! Today, I'm excited to share with you an all new coloring devotional to fall in love with, Picturing Heaven:



Imagine Heaven the way the Bible describes it―a place of exquisite beauty brimming with marvelous detail and intricate patterns; a special dwelling place free of corruption and sin; and a place of both rest and enjoyable, meaningful work.

Let the power and majesty of Heaven fill your heart with joy as you color these 40 designs carefully interpreted from the pages of Scripture. Savor a respite from daily life as you read and meditate on devotions from best–selling author Randy Alcorn, a leading authority on Heaven. Picturing Heaven will offer you comfort and relaxation, while filling your heart with restful assurance that God prepares a special place for those who love Him.

Throughout the last several years I have reviewed many devotionals. I've also reviewed several coloring book devotionals. They all have their various themes, but all tend to focus on our time HERE on earth, and our relationship with God in the here and now. They might mention Heaven, but I've never had either that focused purely on the topic. Until this one... and it does it beautifully.

Many of us use coloring books as an escape... a way to relax and separate ourselves from the stresses of the world... and let's be honest there are a LOT of stresses out there. But this coloring book provided that escape in such a beautiful way. It reminds us that this world is all just temporary and that one day, we will go to this magnificent place that God has prepared for us. There will be no stresses, no pain... just beauty.

The illustrations are as beautiful as the devotions featuring a variety of stunning styles to choose from. I loved the addition of the gold throughout the illustrations... I'm a big gold fan, and I've not personally found a great way to incorporate that into my coloring pages, but with this it's already done for me. And it fits beautifully with the theme too!

If you're looking for an escape, this is a great coloring book to check out. It is available to purchase now at your favorite Christian book retailers.
