The author of "Jesus is My BFF!" visited children in primary and early middle grades in the after school program at Heartland Community Church. The children had just received copies of the book which they had read. The group learned that they could make their colorings more interesting by using texture. They were provided with textural papers, lace and othe textural items and shown how to put their paper over a texture and to use the side of a crayon to rub color across the texture capturing a visual image of the texture they had chosen. Each child chose 2 pages from the book that they wanted to color.

         a grin on his face, his heart exaggerated.  The star has been colored by a child bright yellow, the background is purple and shows texture created
         by rubbing a crayon over textured surface, and the lower level of background is blue texture.  The stars heart is also blue and purple.  The star 
         looks very bright. This image is page28 in the story-coloring book. This image has the star sailing through

This image depicts Jesus as a grown man with
        children gathered around Him, the youngest seated on his lap.  This child used some texture from textural objects in the background, but created a 
        sense of texture by coloring the figures in lines of different colors, almost as if they were created from layers of color.  This image is page 9 in 
        the story-coloring book. This is the image of the star with arms
        outstretched. This child colored the star blue!  His heart is colored red and green, and the child has added another shape opposite his heart, 
        outlined in red.  Perhaps the child felt a need to balance the image?
