Scripture verses inspire each page of a new colouring book for all ages designed by Australian artist Lorien Atwood. 1Beautiful, hand-drawn designs printed on high quality paper create a wonderful encouragement for meditation. Perforations on each page then let you detach the sheet, allowing you to frame them or pass them on to friends and family.

After a successful launch in Australia, ‘Meditations of the Heart’ is now being released in the UK in time for Christmas. The book became an instant success as soon as it was launched in Australia, and a triggered a Facebook page ‘Colouring in Truth’ that is already has over 5000 followers.

“I loved the idea of colouring in because it’s relaxing and meditative, but I wasn’t getting much out of colouring in ‘motivational’, feel-good slogans,” says Atwood. “When a friend suggested I take what I’d been doing in my devotional journal for years and add colouring designs around the edge, I discovered a whole new way to enjoy meditating on Scripture.”

Meditations of the Heart follows a growing trend in all age colouring in books, but until now there has been a shortage of high quality Christian options. “It’s about encouraging people to find their own ways to worship God with art and Scripture,” explains Lorien. “Of course I hope people will love them, but what I really want is for people to interact with Scripture and benefit from the truth in the words,”

Meditations will be published in the UK by Willow House Books, a boutique publishing house set up specifically to publish Lorien’s work.

Jo Bavington from Willow House Books said: “We love scripture and love the relaxing nature of colouring in books, and this wonderful publication brings both of these together. We are also printing postcards and Christmas cards for people to send as encouragement to others. People can also purchase bulk licences in order to run therapeutic group colouring in sessions.”
