Hello, friends! Spring is here, and for the next few weeks I'll be focusing on Easter and the Atonement. There is simply nothing that brings me more joy and hope than the Atonement of our Savior. I really love the talk "Sunday will come" by Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin. His talk centers on grief, losing loved ones, and the hope of the Atonement, and I think it applies to all of us when we are going through our hardest times. Here's my favorite part:
"Each of us will have our own Fridays—those days when the universe itself seems shattered and the shards of our world lie littered about us in pieces. We all will experience those broken times when it seems we can never be put together again. We will all have our Fridays.
But I testify to you in the name of the One who conquered death—Sunday will come. In the darkness of our sorrow, Sunday will come.
No matter our desperation, no matter our grief, Sunday will come. In this life or the next, Sunday will come... No matter how dark our Friday, Sunday will come."
These words speak to me so much because there are many weeks where I'm just praying to make it to Sunday. The spirit I feel when I partake of the sacrament and renew my covenants fills in the cracks that always creep in during the week. And that's life, you know? I think we have Sundays to remind us of that greatest Sunday of all when our Savior was resurrected and the Atonement was complete, and because of that we can be healed and put back together when we have those dark times.

"If we give our heart to God, if we love the Lord Jesus Christ, if we do the best we can to live the gospel, then tomorrow—and every other day—is ultimately going to be magnificent, even if we don’t always recognize it as such. Why? Because our Heavenly Father wants it to be! He wants to bless us. A rewarding, abundant, and eternal life is the very object of His merciful plan for His children! It is a plan predicated on the truth “that all things work together for good to them that love God.” So keep loving. Keep trying. Keep trusting. Keep believing. Keep growing. Heaven is cheering you on today, tomorrow, and forever."
We are so loved, and we are never alone in the struggles we face. Such a joyful truth!

Hello, friends! When I first heard President Monson speak these words, it struck a chord so deep within me that it has been a constant mantra ever since. There are so many personal conflicts (and family conflicts and church conflicts and political conflicts and on and on) that could be avoided if we take a moment to step back and reevaluate our priorities. Are we sometimes so convinced of our own right-ness that we forget that on the other end of every conflict is another human being who needs and deserves love above all else? When we choose love, even though our minds may not change and their minds may not change, our hearts will change and our relationships can be protected.

Let's keep the love going this week, shall we? These are some of my favorite words about God's love for us - a message that fills in the gaps when I feel so inadequate. God loves you with a complete and perfect love exactly where you are right this moment in your life, no matter how messy your life and your heart feel right now. Don't forget it!
This year I'm doing coloring pages with words from prophets and apostles! Do you have any favorites you'd like me to turn into a coloring page? I'd love to hear them in the comments.

Hello, friends! This week's coloring page comes from another of my favorites - this one pretty much sums up my goals for life: happy + purposeful. And I think President Hinckley was the perfect example of this, too. Do you have a favorite quote from a prophet or apostle you'd like me to turn into a coloring page? Tell me in the comments!

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!

Merry Christmas, friends! This week I have a coloring page for you that celebrates Christmas with the greatest gift of all - that God loves is so much He gave us His son, "that whoso believeth in him should no perish, but have everlasting life." - John 3:16 If we truly learn to feel that love, it can change everything about how we see ourselves and our experiences in life. My Christmas wish for each of you is that you will truly feel the love of God as you celebrate the gift of His son. ❤️
