Hey moms, we get it...
There are times when you need a break, and coloring is a go to activity that will engage and entertain your kids while also giving you a minute to think. But to us, that’s sort of a bonus that comes second to the delight and creativity that are born when a small person sits down in front of an open coloring book and puts crayon - or marker or pen or colored pencil - to paper. Their eyes light up as they carefully choose their hues (“Choose their hues” - Man, our rhyming game is on point today). Their little eyes search the paper to find just the right spot to begin. They ask themselves the burning question: Should I go traditional or wild and crazy?
No matter their artistic style or preference, our coloring pages will allow them to do what coloring does for kids: improve skills like focus, color and texture awareness, hand eye coordination, repetition, patience, concentration, perseverance, self-expression, attention to detail, and a long list of others.

We also think it’s important to mention that we’re aware of the research that supports providing kids with blank paper versus a pre-designed coloring sheet. That’s why our pages are the perfect blend: an important character from the story and plenty of blank space for little minds to use their imaginations and creativity, making each drawing their own. And they get to stay connected to the characters they love while they do it.
Let her fall totally in love with Rooney and the Bible Belles, both inside and outside the lines.
Here’s another idea to consider: we all know that sometimes our kids fall in love with (Or become oddly fixated on) something: they only want to wear that t-shirt with a certain character’s face on it or use utensils of a certain color when they sit down at mealtime. Or color on pages that are several different versions of the same exact picture. In case you were wondering, that’s normal behavior. We wanted to bring you thoughtfully-designed coloring pages that they’ll want to come back to again and again.
So give her the green light. Offer your daughter the chance to bring these stories to life beyond the pages between our hardback cover. Roll out the red carpet for the heroic ladies who God used in a mighty way. And remember, there’s nothing like a familiar face smiling at you after you’ve had a rough day. So print them out and keep them handy, and you can cheer her up when she’s feeling blue. Oh, and don’t forget that you can color with her. Sit down and do it together. Trust us. She’ll be tickled pink.
Give her coloring pages that she’ll love: ones you can rely on to reinforce her character more than you ever thought a coloring page could do.
