New resource produced by Trans-European Division Women's Ministries
The Women in the Bible...and Me coloring book, available in Europe, is the companion resource for Women in the Bible...and Me Bible studies.
[Great Britain] Women in the Bible...and Me, a popular set of Women's Ministries (WM) Bible study lessons, gained a companion resource, Women in the Bible...and Me adult coloring book, in Trans-European Division (TED). The coloring book contains three portraits of each of the fourteen women highlighted in the Bible study lessons. The different styles of portraits were drawn by three different young and talented Adventist women: from Estonia, Serbia, and Great Britain.
Capitalizing on the popularity of adult coloring books and her own joy in the activity, Trans-European Division WM Director Clair Sanches-Schutte produced this coloring book as a tool to introduce others to the Bible study lessons, Women in the Bible...and Me as much as being a resource of itself. She is excited to discover how many men also like to join in coloring, which is not surprising because coloring has been proven "to relieve stress and anxiety, spark our God given gift of creativity, and even help us focus while listening to others. Did you know that you take in more information while you are coloring?" (Sanches-Schutte, as quoted by Victor Hulbert of tedNEWS) Sanches-Schutte goes on to say that adult coloring has become a popular pastime in recent years and people have experienced the many benefits of using both sides of the brain while coloring and listening to a podcast or sermon.

The coloring book is available in Europe in two versions. The less expensive version is printed double-sided for coloring with pencils or crayons. The more expensive version is printed single-sided for coloring with pencils, markers, and gelatos. The blank pages may be used as an art journal. For more information go to, TED WM webpage. This page will be updated when the coloring book is available in the United States of America.
