My thoughts: Picturing Heaven is an adult coloring book that is filled with lovely designs, bible verses, and devotions. There are forty devotional scripture verses from Randy Alcorn’s well-known book, Heaven. This book is made so that you read a Bible verse and then color the page that has a beautifully designed picture that corresponds with the verse. A great way to doodle while you reflect on the verse. I really love all the details of the designs and the gold trim. This book will be beautiful colored or you can leave it as is. I think this would be a perfect gift or a lovely treat for yourself.
