ScriptureDoodle Devotionals - #LitfuseReads Review

I received books for review as part of a Litfuse Blog Tour.  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.
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.

More than a coloring book, ScriptureDoodle is a combination of Bible study, creative expression, and artistic community with artwork shared online at #scripturedoodle.  

Exploring topics such as being generous, finding rest, and facing grief, ScriptureDoodle gives the heart the creative space it needs. This book stimulates the reader's imagination and helps integrate God's Word into everyday life.

ScriptureDoodle God's Promises: A Six-Week Devotional Experience (David C. Cook, December 2016)

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.

About the author:

Her family of four is her greatest joy, along with serving alongside her husband at their local church.

It's not something I haven't said before, but I enjoy coloring and doodling.  It's calming and keeps me focused.  Which is why I love the ScriptureDoodle Devotionals.  They allow me to spend time in God's word and keep me knuckled down.  The devotionals ask for calls of action, meaning I'm able to ponder and analyze what I've read.  

I have devotionals that I read daily but it's sometimes hard for me to invest in dissecting a verse or how I can apply it to my life.  The ScriptureDoodle Devotionals are a way for me to do just that, and I'm more sincere with my answers.  The left side of each page includes scripture and ways to implement them.  There's also prompts for how you should fill in the right side of the page.

The paper is of good quality and I can use a variety of writing utensils in the books, allowing me to be creative.  The beginning of each book includes pages on different ways to doodle, how to draw certain fonts, and basic art instructions.  Those parts were helpful, but I've basically been going with what hits me at the time.  I definitely recommend these two devotionals.
