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!

2017 LDS Mutual Theme: If Any Of You Lack Wisdom, Let Him Ask Of God (James 1:5-6)

October 10th, 2016 | Posted by Jolyn in Church | Scriptures & Quotes | Young Women / Young Men - (Comments Off on 2017 LDS Mutual Theme: If Any Of You Lack Wisdom, Let Him Ask Of God (James 1:5-6))

The LDS Mutual 2017 theme scripture is James 1:5-6, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith…” (emphasis added). I love this scripture! I think it dates back to my missionary days, when I was able to share my testimony of Joseph Smith so many times and I got to know this scripture by heart! I was excited when the church announced it as the mutual 2017 theme scripture.

The mutual 2017 scripture poster comes in five different sizes (4×6, 5×7, 8×10, 11×14, and 16×20). And just in case teal isn’t your thing, it comes in a few other colors as well! With one purchase you receive all of the different size/color options. You can check out the scripture poster HERE.

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!

Printable Goal Reminder Cards (Personal Progress, Faith In God, Cub Scouts)

Recently I was approached about designing some Personal Progress goal reminder cards. I immediately thought, “Why haven’t I thought of this before?” The Young Women will often work on a Personal Progress requirement on mutual night, but then they need to finish the project at home. (And often, the girls forget about it!) These goal reminder cards are the perfect way to send an actual reminder home with them!

I have worked in various church organizations and something like this would have really come in handy – on more than one occasion! So I decided to design not just Personal Progress goal reminder cards, but reminder cards for the Faith In God and Cub Scout requirements too. So for all of you who work with Young Women, Activity Days, or Cub Scouts, feel free to print, use, and share!

“Press Forward with a Steadfastness in Christ” (2 Nephi 31:20) is the new LDS youth mutual theme for 2016. I love designing with the scriptures because by the time I finish working a design, I have the scripture memorized! And I have these designs now available for purchase in my Etsy shop.

O Ye That Embark In the Service of God (2015 LDS Mutual Theme)

October 22nd, 2014 | Posted by Jolyn in Church | Young Women / Young Men - (Comments Off on O Ye That Embark In the Service of God (2015 LDS Mutual Theme))

Embark In The Service Of God - YWcolors

The LDS mutual theme scripture  for 2015 is D&C 4:2 (O Ye That Embark In the Service of God). Maybe this scripture excites me because while serving as a missionary myself, we memorized this entire section in the Doctrine & Covenants and recited it at every zone conference. Parts of it still run through my head now and again. So maybe there is some nostalgia associated with it, maybe I liked it because I already had it memorized, or maybe it is just a great scripture full of truth! But, I think it is fair to say that designing a mutual theme poster with this scripture on it was a fun endeavor for me. My new designs are available in my Etsy store and I am very excited about them.
