I could write songs and sonnets about my affection for crayons.

I’m smitten, and I have been since before kindergarten. There’s a special place in my heart for a new box of crayons. The cleverly named colors, even the waxy smell … the endless possibilities very nearly intoxicate me.

The great news for girls like me is that coloring isn’t just for kids anymore — and even simple coloring can be an act of worship. I recently dove into a new readable coloring Bible, and it’s changing the way I read Scripture. As I opened the pages, I found a beautiful invitation to meditate on the Word of God.

I’m honored today to contribute my writing to Proverbs 31 Ministries.

but more importantly, about the act of worship and colorful meditation

in a creative and busy life.
