As an art educator, for years I have been encouraging people to S l o w d o w n to enjoy the gift of color and the creative process. We all remember as kids the delight of a new color book or sketch pad and the deluxe box of 48 crayons!

Before coloring “was all the rage”, I used these journals as a springboard for creative scribbles, thoughts and songs. You will find “outside the lines” rules for journaling and hints for coloring your prayers. Try combining your coloring efforts with your expressions of the heart and your prayers! A great way to relax and reflect at the same time.
