The end of the year is coming up, which means it is time to start thinking New Years goals! Scripture reading is always on the list for us. This year I worked with The Crafting Chicks to design a 2017 scripture reading chart – something I was happy to design since I figured that this kind of scripture chart just might work perfect for our family too! The goal is to read from the scriptures every single day of the year. Yes, you can do it! This 2017 Scripture Reading Chart has a place to mark each day that you read, as well as hearts to track Family Home Evenings, and months at the bottom to track temple attendance.

I designed both a Primary theme version (which coordinates with my Primary 2017 theme designs), and a mutual version (coordinating with my Mutual 2017 theme designs).

I am providing the Primary version here as a free printable, available in an 8.5″x11″ PDF or a 16″x20″ JPEG. You choose which size works best for your family!

He Is Risen - free Easter printable bookmarkEvery year for Easter, my kids get a new book in their baskets, along with a few other fun summer items. This year I decided to design a bookmark to go along with their new books. I kept it spiritually themed — He Is Risen! — to help offset everything else in their baskets revolving around eggs, bunnies, and chocolate! (Not that I have anything against eggs, bunnies, or chocolate!)

He Is Risen - free Easter printable bookmarkI designed the bookmarks in four different colors (I have four different kids, after all!), and the fun, springy, Easter colors make me happy!

Ordinary People, Extraordinary Results – David A. Bednar quote (free printable!)

March 17th, 2016 | Posted by Jolyn in Church | Relief Society | Scriptures & Quotes - (Comments Off on Ordinary People, Extraordinary Results – David A. Bednar quote (free printable!))

Ordinary people who... do simple things that are right before God will bring forth Extraordinary Results (David A. Bednar) - free printable JPEG

We just pulled off our Relief Society birthday dinner this last week. Our theme for the night was “Being Extraordinary,” and we loved this quote from Elder David A. Bednar: “Ordinary people who faithfully, diligently, and consistently do simple things that are right before God will bring forth extraordinary results.” We wanted to provide each of the women there with a notebook — somewhere to record and write down the simple, extraordinary things in their everyday lives. I designed and printed the cover for the notebooks, using this quote from Elder Bednar, and after we got them all put together, they turned out so darn cute!

Because we prepared a dinner program that revolved around each of the past General Relief Society presidents, we decided to decorate with colors and themes that represented the old and the new: deep reds, creams, lace, ornamental accents. I designed the cover of this notebook with that in mind. I used small 3.25″ x 4.5″ notebooks, printed off my design, and then glued them onto the cover of the notebooks using Super 77 spray glue.

Whenever I use spray glue, I always spend several minutes pressing the paper down firmly and evenly, which in my case includes using an old, clean paint roller.

After they were glued down, I took some scissors and trimmed around the edges. Voila! Finished and ready to give out!

Temple Attending and Temple Loving People, Howard W. Hunter (free printable bookmark!)

Let Us Be a Temple-Attending People (Howard W. Hunter) - free printable bookmark

“Let us be a temple-attending and a temple-loving people… The temple is a place of beauty, it is a place of revelation, it is a place of peace. It is the house of the Lord.” This year we are studying the teachings of Howard W. Hunter in Relief Society and I love this temple quote that came out of the Howard W. Hunter manual. Because I currently work in the Relief Society, I was able to design a large poster using this quote to hang in our Relief Society room. I then decided to share this design as a matching free printable bookmark. Now we can all benefit!

Relief Society Theme

When I first set out to create a nice design of the LDS Relief Society theme, I did it mostly for myself. I mean, for all the years I had been in Relief Society, I really hadn’t studied the motto much. It had been on my spiritual to-do list for… well, a long time. I figured that if I set out to design and create something new, knowing that my end result would mean something new and fresh to look at on my wall (plus, it totally complimented my home, which was a bonus), then that would give me good incentive to study it. Right? Right. It was a good thing too. When you delve into the details of a design, you can’t help but learn a few things along the way. And I learned the Relief Society theme! I can honestly say that I feel pretty familiar with it now.

I offer this Relief Society theme design as a free PDF printable, available in different sizes. Get to know it yourself! Download, display, and share. And remember that although this design is offered as a free printable for personal and church use, the copyright remains with me. Please don’t re-sell or claim this design as your own.
