    Robin Mead's Joyful Inspirations Coloring Book is sure to have something for everyone, with over 85 pictures to color. These range from puppies and flowers to buildings, geometric designs, and people. While the pages are all double-sided, I was very impressed that they are thick enough for me to color the pictures using my Crayola adult fine tip markers (non-washable) with zero bleed-through or shadowing at all.

    While the pictures themselves cover a wide range of subjects, the format of the pictures also vary. Some are simply an illustration, others contain Scripture or inspirational quotes, and still others serve as a frame along the outer edges of the page with Scripture or inspirational quotes being held within their boundaries.

    Overall, I do like this book. Not all of the pictures appeal to me, because they cover such a wide spectrum of art. But this is also part of makes this book suitable for anyone, and it would be a nice project to share with others to fill in the pictures that don't quite fit your personality. That being said, my one complaint about this book is that the pages are not perforated, and some of the pictures continue all the way into the binding making removal (and even coloring) very difficult. This is something to be aware of, depending on your preferred method of coloring pages. 4/5 stars.

    Coloring books are popular today, encouraging us to slow down our frantic pace and relax. This coloring book allows readers to do that and be inspired by Scripture verses and quotes.

    I really liked these illustrations. I had to concentrate on the intricate design and the colors I chose, taking my mind off of any pressing matters. I really liked that there was a Scripture on the page too. I could concentrate on the truth of that verse while I was coloring.

    There are a variety of illustrations, from city scenes to gardens. There are some that are just fun, like swimming fish and (potentially) colorful butterflies.

    I recommend this book to those looking for a coloring book that is both relaxing and inspiring. It would be great for budding artists too as Mead has added tips for coloring. She helps potential artists choose the medium (pencils, crayons, etc.) and gives suggestions for mixing colors and ways to fill in shapes. This is a fun and inspiring book all around.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.

    A great way to celebrate the beauty of God's creation!

    When you look around in the world today, what do you think of when you consider God? Do you think of beautiful sunrises or sunsets? How about the wonder of a bird taking flight? Perhaps it is a field of colorful flowers of every shape and size? Or the beautiful stained glass windows in a church that reflect the colors from the sun? Or even the laughter of a child? Within each of us, we can see evidence of God's creative power in the world around us in unique ways and Robin Mead has brilliantly captured that in Joyful Inspirations Coloring Book.

    Beautiful illustrations capture the beauty in the world around us in coloring pages we can make our own using various types of media from crayons, coloring pencils, gel pens or you name it. There are 96 pages of pages for you to color including the types I have mentioned above and more coupled with beautiful biblical scriptures to invoke a sense of beauty and peace. What better way to take a moment to slow down from our busy days and just appreciate all the God have so abundantly blessed us with. We don't live in a world of black and white but vibrant and brilliant colors.

    I think this is a perfect way to simply take some time for yourself and spend time coloring and reflecting on those beautiful biblical promises. Maybe even grab your kids and teens and have a coloring day and post the pictures prominently on your refrigerator or even frame some. This are simply ways to remind you of the beauty that is all around us each day and so often we are too busy that we fail to take time and smell the flowers or even catch our breath as busy moms, and women!

    I received Joyful Inspirations Coloring Book by Robin Mead compliments of Faith Words, a division of Hachette Book Groups. I would recommend not using markers in this coloring book as the pages have print on both sides. Some markers might bleed through and compromise the illustration on the reverse side. I used Prisma Coloring Pencils on mine and had no issue. Crayons and some gel pens might work depending on their absorption rate, so use caution when coloring in them. For that reason I give this coloring book a 4 out of 5 stars in my opinion just because of the issue with having bleed through issues. Would love to see single page illustrations to prevent that from ruining other pages you might want to color. Simply using other media forms would prevent that as well.

    I've looked for an adult coloring book for a long time, but all I could find were books full of intricate designs with tiny spaces to fill in.

    I really wanted to find a book to help me relax. All those books were going to do nothing other than give me more stress.

    Then this book found me. Yes, it does have some of those intricate designs, but most of the designs are the kind that help lessen my stress. Another bonus - appropriate scripture and quotes sprinkled throughout the book.

    Thank you, Ms Mead, for giving us a coloring book that makes me smile.

    ***A special thank you to Katie Connors for providing a review copy.***
