Children can spend hours with a coloring book, carefully filling the pen and ink drawings with crayon. But when did we get too “grown-up” for such pleasurable pastimes? Doodle Art Alley thinks adults need to color, too, so they developed this series.

In Amazing Grace, the creative soul is treated to quotes from some of the best thinkers, along with select Bible verses, spelled out with doodle art. Coloring these images provides a chance to meditate upon the chosen phrase, as well as the ability to be creative in how we decide to color it. Will our preferred medium be crayon, magic market, or colored pencil? Pastels, earth tones, or primary colors? A careful artist would need about an hour or two to complete each design, and they can easily be picked up and put away whenever the mood strikes.

If you’re looking for a relaxing and meditative way to pass the time, this Doodle Art Alley series might be just what you need. They’re highly addictive!
