About the Books:
ScriptureDoodle: A Six-Week Devotional Experience (David C. Cook, October 2016)
With inspiring exercises and prompts, this unique interactive guide introduces readers to a creative connection between Bible study, artistic expression, and worship.
Often, in the busyness of life, Christians forget that God created them to enjoy creativity. With guided instruction and completed examples, this beautiful book invites readers to draw closer to God through their own art.
Some of the most incredible stories in the Bible are of God’s promises and faithfulness to His children.
ScriptureDoodle God’s Promises refreshes believers who are feeling burned out or stuck in a rut in their relationship with God. Each of the creative worship prompts in this interactive guide includes biblical encouragement and ideas for worship through art. Artist April Knight includes creative lettering tips, color ideas, and completed examples to inspire readers to respond to promises in Scripture related to trust, faith, and the power of God’s Word in all circumstances.
This unique blend of Bible study and creative expression provides the opportunity to connect with God as Creator in a new, life-changing way.
My Personal Thoughts on the Books:
These books are beautiful When they arrived I instantly feel in love with the bright colors and whimsical art work that adorns both the outside covers as well as the inner pages.
Am I a doodler? Yes! Thinking back I can even remember a time when one of my teachers ask me to refrain from marking up my homework so much with my scribbles and doodles. There is just something about doodling that helped me focus on my work and the task Strange how that works.
I still doodle on everything. From my home school planner to my recipe notes as I plan out future recipes posts. So naturally I was so excited to dive into the Scriptures and the chance to turn my doodles into more than just decorations on my grocery list.
April Knight’s idea of adding doodling in with scripture memorization is a wonderful concept. Not only does it make the study of the scriptures come alive right before your eyes it is also a great way to express yourself through your doodles and coloring. Come on who doesn’t love coloring?
It was a joy incorporating these books into my daily devotion time and it a refreshing change my normal routine. I found that the doodling and drawing on each page was so relaxing and it really help me to unwind after a long day at work. ScriptureDoodle is a devotional but these books are not your typical devotional. They are a way to learn a Bible verse and enjoy letting your inner artist emerge. The books offer many tips and ideas for drawing each daily topic. The author included a guide that includes a list of things you might need for your doodling as well as even some neat tips on lettering.
I would recommend these fun devotionals to anyone that enjoys breaking away from traditional or for anyone that enjoys drawing and artist expression. They would make wonderful gifts also for friends and family this holiday season. If I had to choose one thing to change about these books I would say that I would like them slightly better if they were spiral bound, but they are still sturdy and very well made.
I look forward to see more from this author. If you would like to read more about these ScriptureDoodle books and reviews for others that have used these books you can find that here.
