"ScriptureDoodle" Devotional Set by April Knight

I am not artistic. Not even remotely. Stick figures are about all I can manage, and even they don't look good. But the ScriptureDoodle concept intrigued me—as someone who's too intimidated to try anything artistic on her own, I thought these books might be the perfect catalyst. I was right.

ScriptureDoodle: A Six-Week Devotional Experience (David C. Cook, October 2016)

With inspiring exercises and prompts, this unique interactive guide introduces readers to a creative connection between Bible study, artistic expression, and worship.

Often, in the busyness of life, Christians forget that God created them to enjoy creativity. With guided instruction and completed examples, this beautiful book invites readers to draw closer to God through their own art.

More than a coloring book, ScriptureDoodle is a combination of Bible study, creative expression, and artistic community with artwork shared online at #scripturedoodle.  

Exploring topics such as being generous, finding rest, and facing grief, ScriptureDoodle gives the heart the creative space it needs. This book stimulates the reader's imagination and helps integrate God's Word into everyday life.

ScriptureDoodle God's Promises: A Six-Week Devotional Experience (David C. Cook, December 2016)

Some of the most incredible stories in the Bible are of God's promises and faithfulness to His children.

ScriptureDoodle God's Promises refreshes believers who are feeling burned out or stuck in a rut in their relationship with God. Each of the creative worship prompts in this interactive guide includes biblical encouragement and ideas for worship through art. Artist April Knight includes creative lettering tips, color ideas, and completed examples to inspire readers to respond to promises in Scripture related to trust, faith, and the power of God's Word in all circumstances.

This unique blend of Bible study and creative expression provides the opportunity to connect with God as Creator in a new, life-changing way.

Combining art and Scripture is new to me, and I think I like it!

Here's what I love about the ScriptureDoodle books: they're not just about marrying coloring, hand lettering, and doodling with Scripture. They're also about instruction, which is so valuable for the non-artist like me. Before the devotionals even start, there are several pages of instruction on shading techniques, hand lettering, and simple doodling.

I felt super hesitant when I opened up the book, but once I started on the lessons, I began feeling more confident. Not confident enough to actually show anyone my work, but confident enough to keep going. And when I royally messed up one of the lessons (seriously. I was trying to write "NEW" in block letters, and my W looks like a crown drawn by a child), I just shrugged it off and moved on. After all, my doodles are for me, not for anyone else!

I've really enjoyed working through ScriptureDoodle, and I look forward to continuing with this unique Bible study. It would make a great gift for any woman in your life. 5 stars.
