"A Giving Heart is a beautiful coloring book that is based around the theme of motherhood. Some of the coloring pages are pictures to color. Others are quotes with pictures around them. Each page is single sided and on the back of many is a Bible verse or a quote that relates to motherhood. There are 46 different illustrations that you can color included. I love the variety of drawings included. Whether you prefer simple or more complex coloring pages, there will be something you love in this book.
This is not only a gorgeous keepsake for yourself but would make a beautiful gift for Mother’s Day.

"I recently had the chance to review a beautiful adult coloring book designed just for moms, called A Giving Heart. This book had inspiring quotes and Scripture to encourage and inspire Christian mothers.


My daughter really likes art, but I'm not very good at it, so this was a great way for me to spend time with her at the art table, doing something that looked good when it was done. The art is detailed enough to be interesting and not childish, but not so hard that I couldn't feel good about how mine looked. There's enough variety in the patterns to make it interesting, so I didn't feel like I was coloring the same picture over and over again.


My daughter liked some of the pages herself, and wanted to color some as a gift for me, which I thought was sweet. I'm considering ordering copies for both my mother and mother-in-law as well, since they both enjoy adult coloring books!

" A beautiful coloring book celebrating motherhood! Scriptures are included and the illustrations are lovely. If you are into adult color books? Pick up this one. " said.

" `A Giving Heart` is a coloring book especially for mom's designed by Stephanie Corfee. The thing I most enjoyed about this color book is the positive quotes throughout the book. Each design is quite detailed, but to spend time just reading the quotes is refreshing.

I believe other mothers should give this book a try because of the quotes and the uplifting coloring even the youngest mother could find a few minutes for. This book is for beginner and experienced colorists. The best thing is it can be set aside and worked on as time allows.

This is the first of three books sent to me by the publisher and I look forward to working in all three. I recommend this color book to young and experienced moms.

"A Giving Heart by Stephanie Corfee is a coloring book created with mothers in mind through and through. This book would be great for any mom who likes to color. Mom can grab a cup of their favorite hot beverage, put on some relaxing music and grab their favorite coloring tools for a little "Me" time.

A Giving Heart has 46 coloring pages featuring beautiful pictures of quotes, Bible verses, flowers, and many more things that Moms enjoy. There is a large variety of pictures in this collection. The pictures are on one side with the backsides either blank or with a single printed verse and accompanying tiny design. This is a good book for those who like to color with a heavier hand or to use markers without worrying about page bleed through. Putting an extra piece of paper or cardboard behind the piece you are coloring is also helpful, although these pages are made of a nice heavy stock. This collection of designs in A Giving Heart is made up of drawings with smaller, finer places to color than some books, so you will need your sharp pencils or extra fine markers for many of them.

I recommend A Giving Heart coloring book to all moms who enjoy coloring for relaxation or coloring your own book while the kids color in theirs. It would make a nice gift too.

I received A Giving Heart Coloring Book from Hachette Book Group/FaithWords. I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for the book.

"I have been a fan of coloring my entire life and love that coloring books are making a comeback and not just for kids either. You can find coloring books on virtually any subject or genre and even some of your favorite movies have spawned their own coloring books as well. Something as simple but meaningful is a coloring book designed not only for moms, but to encourage moms during their day. What better way to spend some quality time coloring with your kids or teens and having a wonderful coloring book that celebrates motherhood is A Giving Heart by Stephanie Corfee.

These coloring pages are beautifully illustrated to capture all kinds of things that celebrate being a mom. Some of these are beautiful quotes from various speakers and even Scriptures that capture the beauty, strength and essence of being a mom. This would make a wonderful gift for that creative and artistic mom who is looking for something beautiful and unique. There is even a dedication page that you can fill out to give to that special mom in your life. Some quotes include ones from such notables like Billy Graham, Abraham Lincoln, Mother Teresa, Michael O. Adesanya, Edwin Hubbell Chapin and so many others.

What I absolutely LOVE about A Giving Heart is that each page is uniquely separated by blank pages or a simple quote on the reverse side. This is really exceptional because so many coloring books print on both sides and depending on the media source you use to color your pages with, some may bleed through, like markers. I find that even using a spare piece of paper helps to prevent bleed through on some markers no matter how lightly you use them.

I received A Giving Heart: A Coloring Book Celebrating Motherhood by Stephanie Corfee compliments of Faith Words, a division of Hachette Book Groups. I love using all kinds of things to color with and perhaps my new found favorite is Prisma coloring pencils because they don't bleed through the pages and the ability to blend your colors together makes shading and highlighting so much easier. For me, I will use this whenever I simply need to take a breather in my day, perhaps taking on too much and the need to slow down, coloring helps. I easily give this coloring book a 5 out of 5 stars.

"A Giving Heart is a stylish adult coloring book. It includes 46 coloring pages that incorporate sayings from the Bible and quotes from famous people honoring mothers and motherhood.

There is nice variety in picture design styles in the coloring pages. These include intricately decorated pictures similar to the one on the front cover, square and rectangular pieces where words are in the spotlight, round mandala-like designs, messages enclosed in decorative wreaths, stylized objects familiar to modern North American moms (like take-out coffee cups, camera, sewing machine,  ball of yarn, and the teacup pictured on the back cover), and full-page designs. The drawings are detailed, youthful, lighthearted, and whimsical.

Coloring pages are printed on the right-hand side, one side only, making it possible to detach them to frame or give away as gifts (though the spine edges are not perforated to make for easy tear-outs). The reverse (left) side of many of the coloring pages is printed with a Bible verse or quote that coordinates with the picture on its opposite side—not the picture that appears to the right of it in the opened book.

This 96-page volume is printed on heavy white paper. I tried out a variety of media on it—Artist’s Loft Watercolor Duo-tip Markers, Crayola Metallic Markers, Accent Sharpies, and regular Sharpies. The only bleed-through I got was from the regular Sharpies.

This lovely book would make a perfect gift for a new mom, or any mom for that matter, who would enjoy unwinding after a hectic day by beautifying affirming words like, “Thank God for mothers,” “Clothe yourself with tenderhearted mercy, kindness & humility – Col 3:12 NLT,” and “I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me – Abraham Lincoln.”

I received A Giving Heart as a gift from Hachette Book Group for the purpose of writing a review.
