The Joys of Creation

Hello, friends! I'm so happy to be back with a brand new coloring page for you. This year I've decided to create pages based on my favorite words from the prophets and apostles of our day, so I thought I'd start out with my very favorite quote of all, from Thomas S. Monson:

"God left the world unfinished for man to work his skill upon. He left the electricity in the cloud, the oil in the earth. He left the rivers unbridged and the forests unfelled and the cities unbuilt. God gives to man the challenge of raw materials, not the ease of finished things. He leaves the pictures unpainted and the music unsung and the problems unsolved, that man might know the joys and glories of creation."

These words thrill me every time - God gives us the opportunity and power to create, because we are creative beings just as He is. And I think the greatest raw material we have is our own self. It makes it okay for us to not be perfect today - we are in partnership with God to become something beautiful each and every day. 

If you have a favorite quote that you'd like me to turn into a coloring page, leave it as a comment below!

To print this page, just right click the image below to save to your computer, then print as you would a photo. Make sure you click "fit to page" so the edges don't get cut off. Have a great week!

THANK YOU for the wonderful coloring pages. I color them with my children, especially on Sunday and it is a joy for all of us! (I can't wait for the joys of creation - it isn't letting me see it right now, but I'll try again later - not sure what the glitch is!)
Favorite quote that I would love to see: "Life is to be enjoyed not just endured." President Hinckley :)
