His Grace is Sufficient – Free Printable

GraceIsSufficientBlogPic-01Hi friends!
Today I have a beautiful printable for you. But we can be honest here, right? Okay…here goes. This was not what I was planning on sharing with you. In fact, I had a completely different printable ready to share, was about to hit publish and WHAM! Was hit with a full-blown melt down, panic attack. Yep. True story. Ugly cry and all.

What was the madness behind the tears? Well for starters, I was having computer issues, which always induces some form of panic. But I was also slammed in the face with this all-consuming, awful feeling of inadequacy. You know what I speak of, yes? This little (sometimes huge) voice in my head was telling me that what I have to offer isn’t good enough, that it won’t matter and that I am wasting my time. I wish I could say this is the first time this has ever happened to me, but I’ll be honest and say that this is a battle that I have fought many (many, many) times. When I was in my younger years, this little voice would nearly cripple me from accomplishing just about anything. However, I feel like I have come a long way in battling this demon, but once in a blue moon, it sneaks up on me and rears its ugly head. It frustrates me to no end when I have these feelings, because I swear its something that I have overcome or somehow conquered. But then it pops right back up, usually un-announced, un-invited, and definitely not welcomed. So what did I do? I slammed my computer shut, drew a bath and decided to call it a night.

Even though I really did not want to (honesty, right?) I knelt down for prayer. I was almost instantly reminded of this month’s Come Follow Me lesson on Grace and the scripture found in Ether 12:27 that speaks about Christ’s grace being sufficient to turn our weaknesses into strengths. I love what Elder Ucthdorf says about grace, “Another element of God’s grace is the opening of the windows of heaven, through which God pours out blessings of power and strength, enabling us to achieve things that otherwise would be far beyond our reach. Throughout our lives, God’s grace bestows temporal blessings and spiritual gifts that magnify our abilities and enrich our lives. His grace refines us. His grace helps us become our best selves.”  So not only can I apply grace in spiritual matters, but I can apply it in my day to day temporal needs.  I can use grace to get that voice out of my head tells me I’m not enough.  Grace can stretch what I have to offer into much more than I think I have to give.
GraceIsSufficient2-01I decided that I needed to create a printable to help me (and maybe you) remind me that His grace is sufficient to help me be the best version of myself. And as Brad Wilcox states, “The grace of Christ is sufficient—sufficient to cover our debt, sufficient to transform us, and sufficient to help us as long as that transformation process takes.”

The packet includes 8 pages of journaling prompts based on The Living Christ, 4 art prints focused on the Savior, and additional blank note pages to jot down your thoughts if you’re needing extra space.

I’ve included an additional page at the end of the journal printables file that includes a few of my favorite conference talks and video clips along with links to find them and a copy of The Living Christ online.

I am a Daughter of my Heavenly Father

I am a daughter of my heavenly father quoteSometimes it’s easy to recite the yw theme in a group at church  without fully thinking about or understanding the  connection we each have personally with our Heavenly Father. I am a Daughter of my Heavenly Father and now even at 55 years old, I find peace in knowing that he knows me personally with all of my imperfections, my struggles, my joys. He knows my heart and He loves me… just as He loves each one of you. This is a quote I made to remind me that I am His daughter. You can find it here.

Take care, Brenda

Free ‘Press Forward’ iPhone Wallpaper & Printable

I have three phone-obsessed teenagers so I’m always on the lookout for ways to use their tech to reinforce gospel messages. When I started designing pieces for my 2016 Press Forward line I knew it needed to include some cool phone wallpapers to please my tech-loving kids. After all, what better way to remind them to use their tech wisely than to have this beautiful scripture light up their lock screen every time they grab their phones?

MeckMom Press Forward iPhone Mockup Pic 1-01This phone wallpaper version was the perfect choice for my 14 year-old son (who can’t seem to hold on to a lesson handout for more than 12 seconds). However, my beehive and laurel-age daughter’s still love paper handouts so I made a printed version for them to hang in their rooms as well.

MM Press Forward iPhone Printed Pic 750x750-01You can find both the iPhone screen saver and the 5×7 print below. Mom Tip: the 5×7 print also works well as a computer screen-saver and iPad lock screen so you should grab both files while you’re here. Might as well plaster all their devices with scriptures, right? 😉

Feel free to save them to your phones, print them at Costco or simply text them to all the device-addicted teenagers in your life. Enjoy!
