Review: Broken Crayons Still Color
I am excited to be a part of author Shelley Hitz's influencer group for her new book, `Broken Crayons Still Color`. The tagline reads, `From Our Mess to God's Masterpiece`.
While studying the ARC I was at a place I didn't feel like God's Masterpiece. Instead, I felt like a broken crayon or one that has stayed in the heat of the sun too long. After the study, I feel closer to God and my husband. My husband and I stayed up one night just talking, sharing dreams, talking about our guys, etc. It felt so intimate and I look forward to doing that again.
I love the cover of this book. Even though some of the crayons are broken they are still colorful. Each chapter has a page to color while the pupil ponders over what they are being taught. The complete package contains student guides, teacher's guide, and a video.
One thing most people don't realize is that no one has it all together. No one is perfect or has a perfect life. While I was a child, into my teen years, I envied those beautiful, skinny models, t.v. actresses, etc. Author Shelley Hitz points out no matter how our life is, God is always able to use our brokenness to create something beautiful. To end each chapter there is a section on prayer, memory verse, and going deeper.
It's possible to do the study without the video, but they are a great asset to the study. The videos that come with the study are clear and of good quality. There is a viewer guide that goes with each video and I love how demonstrative Shelley is. She is very excited to get the points across to you the student.
