Be Bold offers an outlet to simultaneously focus on God's Word and express creativity. Using scripture as the foundation for her designs, Ellen Elliot takes readers through a series of inspiring verses reinforced with short devotional writings. Topics include joy, hope, self-image, peace, and more. Each coloring page and corresponding devotional will help the reader develop a closer relationship with the Heavenly Father.

My Thoughts

This book has a month’s worth of 31 devotionals. On the right side of the page, there is a Bible verse, a theme and a short  5-minute devotional.  On the left side is a page to color.   Some of the themes are: Believe who God says you are, Choose joy, Jesus never changes, and Trust in the Lord.

The book is marketed to teens – but, I think it would be fun for any age. I thoroughly enjoyed it and my teen years are a very distant memory!  Coloring is a great stress reliever and I enjoy coloring pages where there is a focus on Bible verse. I find myself thinking about that truth while I color.

What I liked

  • At the back of the book are 12 blank pages to write prayers or notes
  • The coloring pages are bold and whimsical, not tiny details.  Fun to color!
  • The pages are a thicker paper.

What I didn’t like

  • The pages aren’t perforated. I often prefer to tear the pages out to color them
  • The pages don’t lay flat – not a deal breaker for me but could be a challenge if you are left handed.

I would recommend it to

I think it would make a great gift for a teen or tween.

I have received a copy of this book from Tyndale for an honest review of the product.

I’ve never been a colorer, but I do appreciate nicely-colored pictures, as my fridge attests. 🙂
