The Story Behind Color Your Life
When like-minded cousins put their heads together, anything is possible. Pernethia Arrington and Pamela Antoinette had no idea what was in store when they met each other for the first time in 30 years at a family reunion in Bessemer, Alabama. They had only faint childhood memories of running around as children in the backyards of their California homes before Pernethia's family picked up and moved to New Jersey. Thirty years later, the cousins found an opportunity to reconnect, build a relationship, and eventually combine their coaching businesses to develop The Holistic Institute for Creative Life Change. It was more than a coincidence that for decades, the two had separately collected bible scriptures and inspirational quotes in their respective journals with the intent to eventually publish a book of devotionals. Fueled by each other's energy, creativity, and desire to help people change their lives, the two decided to launch a coloring book series of their own - a series that would include all of the components they wished were included in the coloring books they owned themselves. It quickly became clear that what they needed to create was much more than a devotional, but a book that offered three inspirational features that helped each of them in their own lives: devotional scriptures, journaling spaces, and pages for coloring.
