Botanical Reflections: Capture Your Days in Words and Pictures
Botanical Reflections by Doris Lance is an inspirational Christian book. It was published just two years ago, in March 2019. It is also a picture book that features wonderful flowers that young children can color together. Doris Lance’s book contains 54 pages, measures 8.5 x 0.15 x 8.5 inches, and weighs 5.3 ounces, which is pretty light and portable.
As an avid hiker and wildflower photographer, Doris has seen nature’s wonders and majestic beauty. Throughout her numerous trek and nature walks, she has discovered multiple unique floras that many of us can only dream of. Through these encounters, Doris chose to incorporate flowers in her inspiring spiritual book entitled Botanical Refections. The pages of the book are filled with intricate and detailed drawings of various flowers. Many of these flowers are rare and can only be seen in remote locations, perhaps in high mountains and dense forests. Readers are in a treat for discovering a new and impressive collection of flora.
“With life’s ups and downs, Botanical Reflections can be the prescription for you to help your days be more enjoyable. Explore feelings, reduce anxiety, and reconcile emotional conflicts when you purchase and use this book to answer a daily question, read an inspiring quote, and express your creativity.” (book description)
Botanical Reflections is not your ordinary inspirational Christian book. It is also a coloring book that can also serve as a journal. Doris Lance has produced a creative way to inspire readers to listen to God’s word and express themselves. The book is divided into two parts. Every left page contains a question, a blank space for you to answer, and at the bottom of the page is an excerpt or a quote from the Bible. For example, page 1 contains the question, “What do you wish you had more time to do?”, then space is allocated for your answer, and below it is a line from the Proverbs 27:19 NIV, “As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.” Then at the right side of the page is a line illustration of a beautifully drawn flower.
Overall, Doris Lance’s Botanical Reflection is a delightful book that is certainly worth checking out today.
