This is a companion book to the coloring book by the same author. And while I didn’t know this until I read a review by a fellow blogger, this illustrated book is the same as the coloring book, consider it a guide to using the coloring book if needed.

This book is filled with inspirational quotes that will lift up anyone’s day and will make a great gift for a graduate or a friend or anyone needing a little pick me up.  I have a few favorite quotes from the book – “Be the reason someone smiles” – it is a great reminder that there is so much negativity in this world that a friendly smile or gesture can make the difference in someone’s day.  I also like “Stay True to You” – this reminds me to not be someone I am not because it does no one any good especially myself!

And if you need help with the coloring book, you can draw upon the pages here to spark your imagination (or if you are like me and do not have a creative bone in your body!)

We give this 5 paws up and I can’t wait to share it with friends and family so they can be inspired as well.

about the author

annette-bridgesAnnette Bridges is an author, publisher and women’s retreat host on a mission to help every woman realize her story is extraordinary, valuable and noteworthy.

Before writing books, this former public school and home school educator spent a decade writing hundreds of helpful, instructive, and lighthearted columns published by Texas newspapers, parenting magazines, websites, and bloggers.

Annette lives on a Texas cattle ranch with her husband John, dachshund Lady, and lots of cows. She can drive a tractor but only if wearing a fresh coat of lipstick and it’s not her pedicure day!

Annette loves to journal in color and create word art. She especially enjoys coloring with glitter markers. She looks forward to spending hours with her daughter coloring this book and giggling together as they remember their many happy adventures.
