When Harper Collins approached me about working with them to create a coloring book, my first thought was “WOAH!!!” I was so honored and humbled. My second thought? No. Why no? Well for starters, I hadn’t gotten into the adult coloring book phenomenon. I haven’t had margin in my life since it was merely a part of the college-ruled notebook pages I loved doodling in decade ago. If I’m honest (which you know I am), the adult coloring books I saw looked beautiful (!!!) but, for me, daunting. BUT, I felt strongly like the Lord graciously brought me this opportunity, and so it was my job to pray on it. To really listen. If I was to take on this project, what would the Lord allow me to say to anyone that would buy this book? I needed to stop thinking about it like a coloring book, and instead, think about it as ministry. What have I been over here saying, waving my arms about this whole time? To anyone that will listen? I’ve been shouting “Art matters. You matter. And you matter enough for art.” I believe to the core of my being that our creative God uses art to heal us, inspire us, delight us, soothe us, nourish us. Furthermore, it is CRAZY TOWN to me that you guys are actually reading what I have to say. And as I thought about that, I thought.. why? Why me? Surely it has nothing to do with me. If I don’t point to God and shout His name until my lipstick wears off, then what is this all for? Naught. And so the Lord lead me to the decision of a big, fat, YES to getting to create a coloring book – for you. With you in mind, and with Him as the star. I hope hope hope you will give it a chance. Even if you’re not into coloring books. If you’re into God’s word, I hope with all my heart that you will pre-order this book, and just see what God has in store for you, and what He would use me to speak to you over it’s pages. If nothing else, you’ll find this: Simple yet beautiful illustrations of God’s word, phrases encouraging you that you are worthy of love, and forgiveness, and encouragement, and the kind of nourishment only He can provide.
Also! If you preorder the book and go to the form on my site, you can enter your receipt number for a FREE coloring page download, so you can get started coloring right away. Included in the PDF will also be a cute little certificate for you to print out and wrap as a “placeholder” of sorts if you’re giving the book as a Christmas gift. (It ships January 24th!)
Thank you SO MUCH for your support and encouragement! My prayer is that God takes this project and does way more with it than I could ever imagine, and that it ends up being the perfect creative tool in your journey of finding nourishment that your soul is craving.
