Every year I find a devotional book for my family to use during the month of December as we look forward to our favorite holiday: Christmas. This year we will be using a devotional coloring book called All is Bright.
All is Bright: A devotional journey to color your way to Christmas is a beautiful coloring book and devotional for the whole family, written by Nancy Guthrie and illustrated by Lizzie Preston. Unlike many of the coloring books out there right now (and there are a ton), this one is also a full devotional and family activity guide. Included in the book are 31 days of devotionals laid out like the one pictured below. Each day’s devotional is well-written and family friendly and included a lovely coloring page that could be used individually or as a family.
At the end of the book, there is a section of family activities including conversation starters and coloring pages. For example, the first of these family activity pages include a scripture verse (Acts 20:35), three questions for discussion (one is “What do you find yourself dreaming of giving?”), and a short prayer that can be read aloud among your family. There are twelve of these family activities. There are also twelve kid-friendly coloring pages at the very end of the book.
Every year as Christmas draws closer, and my kids start dreaming of Santa and all the things they want to get – it’s always really important for us to sit down each night and remember why we celebrate Christmas as a family and what the holiday means to us. We’ve used many beautiful devotionals throughout the years, but never have we done a coloring devotional, so I’m really excited to see how they respond to being able to doodle and color as we have our family time each night.
