Review: Live Free (An Adult Coloring Book) by Margaret Feinberg

Posted March 27, 2016 / 1 Comment

My favorite thing about Live Free from Margaret Feinberg and Bethany House Publishers is that it puts some purpose to my coloring. While my mind is peacefully engaged in deciding which shade I should make this butterfly, I am also meditating on the Bible verse that graces the page.

Bays tackles – with grit and grace – some of the deepest and darkest questions that touch every soul at some point in life. If you personally haven’t thought them (because we don’t dare say them out loud), someone close to you has… is… will.

I don’t know that I would recommend this book just by itself, as I think it would ultimately frustrate someone that genuinely wants to get out of debt or manage their finances. However, I do think it’s an important resource to use alongside other financial planning tools – to help you assess your attitude toward money and see why you feel financially insecure and/or unable to give as generously as you wish.

The books I’m talking about today are those books that I consider eternal favorites. Many are from childhood or adolescence, some I acquired in adulthood, but all are books that have stuck with me and refuse to leave my heart. They are also all books that I reread often.

Parents often experience a “freak out” moment when they realize their children’s view of God will primarily come from what they learn at home. Most parents spend more time helping their kids succeed at academics or athletics than infusing shared spiritual experiences into the rhythm of everyday family life. While […]

I’m pretty sure that debut author Valerie Woerner and I are kindred spirits. Both good girls, both imaginative worriers, both self-proclaimed book nerds. And y’all… she too has fully embraced the use of my favorite plural for “you” 🙂 Anne Shirley would be so elated for us! I adore the cover of The […]

The wilderness. Maybe you know it well. The Israelites sure did. After all, they spent forty years wandering the desert. Victories were scarce. Progress was slow. They were free from Pharaoh but not free from fear. Saved but stuck. Sounds a lot like midlife misery. Caught in a rut. Stalled […]
