Hello, friends! It is officially Christmas time and I am absolutely thrilled. I'm also super inspired by the #LighttheWorld campaign - all about sharing the light of Christ this season by doing the things that he would do. There's a wonderful video and a daily calendar that you can watch and download here - 100% guaranteed to get you in the true spirit of Christmas.

This week's coloring page celebrates that theme. I hope you'll enjoy it and share it as you look for your own ways to light the world this beautiful Christmas season.

Give Thanks unto the Lord - free Thanksgiving coloring page!



Hello friends! This week I have a lovely page for you that is perfect for Thanksgiving. This month I have been loving studying gratitude using the beautiful free study guide from The Small Seed. My greatest lesson so far is that gratitude leads us to JOY. We all have challenges, but when we look at our lives with a heart seeking to see God's blessings, there is so much more that is good. How can we help but give thanks to our Heavenly Father for all of it?

I hope you have a wonderful week, and that your eyes will be open to God's tender mercies for you. They will be there, because He loves you.

Cheerfully Do All in Our Power - Free Coloring Page!



Hello, friends! I'm delighted to be back with another coloring page for you today.  I love this scripture so much: "Therefore, dearly beloved brethren, let us cheerfully do all things that lie in our power; and then may we stand still, with the utmost assurance, to see the salvation of God, and for his arm to be revealed." - D&C 123:17

I think this is a recipe for happiness, especially in difficult times - we cheerfully do what we can, then stand still and trust In God's plan for the rest. ❤️

Fullness of Joy - Coloring Page #26

***Great news! I'm turning my coloring pages into a beautiful coloring book and journal, which will be published and ready to ship just in time for Christmas! If you're interested, you can pre-order now on Kickstarter!***




Happy Sunday, friends! I really loved General Conference last weekend. I noticed a recurring theme with so many speakers, too -- it was all about JOY! Joy in life, joy in the gospel, joy in our discipleship. President Nelson's talk was especially meaningful to me - I loved how he taught "Joy is powerful, and focusing on joy will bring God's power into our lives." I'm still wrapping my brain around all that that can mean for me, but in the mean time, I have not one but two coloring pages for you this week, one with that thought, and one with one of the scriptures President Nelson quoted in his talk. If you haven't heard it, get over to LDS.org and check it out!

Open Your Hearts - Coloring Page #25

***Great news! I'm turning my coloring pages into a beautiful coloring book and journal, which will be published and ready to ship just in time for Christmas! If you're interested, you can pre-order now on Kickstarter!***




Hello there! This weekend is a special one for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints -- over the next two days, our prophet, apostles, and other leaders speak to the world, bringing messages of faith and direction from our Heavenly Father. It's always incredibly uplifting - some of the greatest moments of personal revelation I've had have come from the messages of General Conference. You can check it out at lds.org!

In honor of the weekend, this week's coloring page comes from Mosiah 2, in which a prophet called all his people together to give them his final counsel. He began his message by calling them to "open your ears that ye may hear and your hearts that ye may understand." That's what I'm praying for for myself as I soak in the messages of the next two days. And I'm not going to lie - for myself I'd have to add "open your eyes that ye may not fall asleep..." because sometimes that happens, too. :)

Enjoy this free coloring page, and the others here on the blog - they're a great way to keep your hands busy while you can listen to conference! :) To print this page, just right click on the image below and save to your computer, then print normally.

Great shall be the peace of thy children -- Coloring Page #24

***Great news! I'm turning my coloring pages into a beautiful coloring book and journal, which will be published and ready to ship just in time for Christmas! If you're interested, you can pre-order now on Kickstarter!***



Happy Sunday, friends! This week's coloring page is in the style of an embroidery sampler, and it comes from Isaiah 54, and I think it's one that we all recognize and take comfort from as we try to teach our kids and raise them up to have faith in the Lord. Because this is really the end goal, isn't it? We want our children to have peace in their lives and in their hearts, and having a relationship with our Savior and our Heavenly Father is the way that peace can last whatever life throws at them.

Proverbs 31 - Coloring Page #23

***Great news! I'm turning my coloring pages into a beautiful coloring book and journal, which will be published and ready to ship just in time for Christmas! If you're interested, you can pre-order now on Kickstarter!***



I can 100% guarantee that if you are a mom, you have felt the strain of trying to balance all the things. If you are a mom and also trying to to figure out how to work a business or career in with it, the difficulty just multiplies. We second guess ourselves - are we giving enough to our family? Are we giving them the short end of the stick by trying to take care of them AND work? If we didn't, would we get so stifled and burned out that we wouldn't be a very good mom anyway? Not to mention the fact that many of our families depend on our income to make ends meet. Sometimes it feels like whatever we choose won't actually be good enough one way or the other.

And of course I don't have the answers because I'm right there in the thick of it myself, but I wanted to share an amazing scripture - Proverbs 31 - with you for this week's coloring page. My new friend Marcella of @ilovewoolies shared this with me and it pretty much blew my mind. It's the chapter of Proverbs that talks about a virtuous woman's worth being above rubies, and later on about her children rise up and call her blessed. I've heard those a million times, but I never noticed the whole chapter is about this virtuous woman WORKING, making things with her hands to sell, feeding and clothing her family, reaching her hands out to the poor, employing other women as well. You really need to read the whole chapter - it may give you a new perspective on your career efforts. Because after all that description, her children rise up and call her blessed. Of course our families deserve our very best, but we have so much capacity to work and to create and to grow - maybe we need to give ourselves a little more space to do that without heaping so much guilt on ourselves.
