I was excited to be given the opportunity to check out an early-release copy of a new mini e-guide written by Brooke Wander, a local, professional photographer whose creative work I have followed for the past few years. “About Those Photos: Begin the Journey of Hobby Photography” is a fabulous guide that encourages us to dive into the fun activity of using hobby photography to enhance our experiences within our everyday lives.

January is a month of goal-setting and resolutions. This month I’ve started a new daily habit that I’m hoping will kick-start my creativity for writing again, and I think all writers (aspiring or experienced) will enjoy it as much as I do. “My Unedited Writing Year: 365 Invitations to Free Your Creativity and the Writer Within” was written by Hope Lyda and published by Harvest House at the end of 2019. It is truly a one-of-a-kind volume. I’ve been following along with the prompts every day this month, and am enthusiastic to continue using this interactive journal for the entire year of 2020 – who knows what will come of this exciting adventure?!

When I was a teenager, I went through a stage of wanting to be an interior decorator. Something about taking a bare, empty room and bringing it to life by adding color, texture, lighting, furniture, and accessories. . . well, it just seemed so rewarding! Today, even though I don’t yet have a home of my own, I still love perusing home decorating and design books, discovering new elements of style and better understanding how to make a home beautiful, functional, and a reflection of the people who live there. . . A new release from Harvest House Publishers is a fabulous guide to letting our unique styles shine, and is also a beautiful volume packed with ideas, inspiration, and imagination! Continue reading
After taking just one look at the Beautiful Word Coloring Bible, it had already surpassed my expectations. If I were going to describe it in just a couple of words, I think that most accurate would be “absolutely charming”.
The illustrations for coloring are lovely – not too intricate, but not too simple, and there are plenty of lightly lined, or blank spaces in the margins that can be used for either journaling, or for drawing your own personal creations. Since it is a Bible, the pages are rather thin, so I would recommend coloring with pencil crayons rather than markers, but the pages are still thicker than a regular Bible. A pretty, light blue ribbon marker, and a lovely presentation page make this Bible ideal to be given as a gift, or simply for your own enjoyment. I also appreciate that it is in the NIV translation.
All in all, I highly recommend the Beautiful Word Bible, whether it is for yourself, or to give as a gift. It is charming to say the least, and will undoubtedly be a wonderful addition to your devotional time, artistic endeavors, or anything else you choose!
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
