Friends, if you’re a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, you probably grew up knowing we believe in Heavenly Parents–a Mother and a Father–but you may not know much more than that. Many of us long to know more and if you’re like me, you treasure the open information posted on the Church website like this Gospel Topics Essay: Mother in Heaven.
Recently, Rachel Hunt Steenblik (@rachelelizahunt on Instagram) somewhat jokingly asked that someone with graphic design skills create a printable version of this essay. Graphic design, free printable, and Heavenly Mother? That had my name all over it!
To me, I always feel deeply connected to our Heavenly Parents when I’m in nature. As an eternal east coast girl, that means wildflowers, birds, insects, and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. I couldn’t fit all of that in, but you got most of it here. As I designed this first printable, I was struck that so many of us feel this connection while in nature and how blessed we are that it looks so different around the world. My heart is often with dear friends and family in Arizona, so you get another printable that looks a little more like what’s beautiful there.
All that being said, I would love to create more versions of this if you’d like! Is there something that makes you feel close to this knowledge of our Heavenly Mother? Let me know and I’ll create something for you to print for your home. It may not happen overnight, but I’ll definitely add it to my list. General Conference is right around the corner and it will be my 22nd time making free printable quote art from your favorite quotes (and mine). You’ll be able to see them here after Conference is over.
As with all of my free printables, I ask that you do not sell any part of these, claim them as your own, or make changes to them without my permission. Thanks for getting through all of that! You can download your 8×10 inch printable by clicking below.
A few of you have requested specific backgrounds and I am LOVING hearing what you’ve shared. Here are some you’ve asked for. I hope you love them!
