Now as a grown-up, I spend my entire workday in a virtual world—staring at screens, creating images and managing digital files, updating the church website. That’s probably a big reason that I turn to a few analog crafts in my non-work hours. My favorite hobbies are quilting and miniature dioramas (both 1:12- and 1:6-inch scale). But, I have a variety that I truly enjoy, including other types of machine sewing, hand sewing (cross-stitch, embroidery), drawing/painting, scrapbooking, as well knitting & crochet. One project after another. That’s definitely me.
Another activity that I loved during my childhood and still enjoy as an adult is coloring. I’m so glad that coloring has had a resurgence over the past few years. As it was then, it still is soothing, fun, creative, and affordable.
As stated at ColoringFaith.com:
“Similar to meditation, adult coloring doesn’t ‘turn off’ your brain as much as it clears mental pathways. Dwelling on scripture or your favorite hymn while coloring offers a rare opportunity to not only read or listen to something encouraging; it offers a chance to dwell on, and experience, the information you’ve just taken in.”
So, for this daily inspiration, I decided to pull together some free faith-based coloring pages and put them all in one file to download.
All the sources are linked in the file, so you can find more if you want. Plus…I threw in a few images of Liberty! I hope you will find some time to dwell on and be encouraged by the pictures and bible verses included.
