The Coloring Cafe: Bible Blessings to Color - Adult Coloring Book Review and Giveaway

I received product for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
A couple of months ago my mother was in the hospital.  I spent several nights in there with her.  To pass the time, my sister purchased an adult coloring book and coloring pencils for me.  From then on, a hobby was born.  I found that coloring helps relieve stress and takes my mind off things.  It's beneficial mental relaxation.  My mother has taken up the hobby too, and spends a lot of her days coloring in pages.  It's been a whirlwind of gel pens, pencils, and markers!
 
One company that I've come across and really like for their adult coloring books is The Coloring Café.  With a selection of coloring books, kits and party packs written and illustrated by Ronnie Walter, The Coloring Café is quickly moving up in the ranks of Amazon and is selling several thousand copies a month.  There are several versions available, with new titles planned for release several times a year.
 
The page of colored-in crosses hangs on a corkboard above my study desk.
 
One of the adult coloring books, Bible Blessings to Color, is designed for reflection and celebration of faith.  There are 42 pages of delightful illustrations, sayings, and scripture.  Each page is blank on the back.  I'd prefer if the pages were perforated but there's still enough leeway on each one to carefully cut them out without cutting into the design.
 
Ronnie Walter is an amazing illustrator and it shows in her blank coloring pages.  I've enjoyed spending my time coloring in the blanks to create my own pretty picture.  I've used a few of the finished pieces as artwork throughout my home. 
 
 
Win It!
 
One person will win The Coloring Café: Bible Blessings to Color adult coloring book.
 
*This is a Rafflecopter giveaway open to residents of the USA.*
