A Membership to Help You Color Yourself Calm, Hide God's Word in Your Heart, and Learn Brush Lettering
Each month you'll get four Scripture coloring pages, four prayer journals, and a 20-page lettering practice sheet workbook.
Coloring is easy - anyone can do it, at any age, and it doesn’t require any artistic skill. Plus, it’s scientifically proven to decrease anxiety. Color your stress away! It’s fun and therapeutic to color inspiring words from Scripture.
We have created prayer journals based on a popular prayer method called Lectio Divina for each scripture. Plus, you'll get a prayer tracker to color in as you spend time with God.
Our prayer journals are created so that you can either print them off or type directly into them if you want to save on printer ink.
The scriptures for this month are:
"that their hearts may be comforted, they being knit together in love, and gaining all riches of the full assurance of understanding, that they may know the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ" - Colossians 2:2
"For you formed my inmost being. You knit me together in my mother’s womb." - Psalm 139:13
"Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I sanctified you. I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.” - Jeremiah 1:5
"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared before that we would walk in them." - Ephesians 2:10

A NEW 20-page Lettering Practice Sheet Workbook Each Month (PDF)
In addition to coloring, we also wanted to provide an opportunity for you to letter each of our theme verses. This is another way you can hide God’s Word in your heart (Psalm 119:11) and meditate on Scripture day and night (Psalm 1:2).
Lettering is similar to traditional calligraphy but doesn’t have all the strict rules. I use brush lettering with a modern style.
In the member area each month you will find the following for each coloring page design:
Lettering practice sheets you can use with small brush pens.
Lettering practice sheets you can use with large brush pens.
The coloring page with the lettering in gray to trace over.
The coloring page without the lettering. This allows you to practice the lettering on your own. You can use different translations of the Scripture and also create your own designs. So fun!
Below you will see one example of what our lettering practice sheets will look like for one design. You will get these 4 pages for each of the 5 coloring pages each month (the theme and 4 scriptures).
Two NEW Puzzles Each Month (PDF)
You will also get one maze and one word search puzzle in the shape of one of my illustrations with my hand lettering for the theme of the month. And each word search will have words and phrases from the theme scriptures of the month.

The Surprising Benefits of Coloring
A cognitive neuroscientist, Stan Rodaki, used an EEG (electroencephalography) to measure the impact of coloring on our brains. He had participants color for five minutes and said, "Just forget about everything else and concentrate only on your coloring."
He found amazing results. The participants not only subjectively reported feeling better but he was able to objectively show the difference it made in their brains.
We can actually control the part of our brain that affects our feelings and mood. This realization is now reinforced by science.
We can start the journey of rewriting our brains through coloring as well as renewing our minds with God's Word.
Here are some ways you can benefit from a Living Colors membership:
Discover how the Bible comes alive as you color and reflect on God's Word. Coloring can help Scripture move from your head to your heart and into the deeper part of your soul. This will help you connect with the Prince of Peace.
Coloring can help relieve your stress. It allows you to slow down and breathe. When you are feeling anxious, just begin coloring and meditating on a verse that is speaking to you that day, and you will find a sense of peace come over you. It will be the perfect way to unwind; your own anti-stress therapy!
You will get a theme and purpose with each coloring design. They are simple and can be finished in a short amount of time. No artistic skills are needed, so you won't feel overwhelmed.
Color, frame or give them away. Try framing and displaying your favorite coloring page for a daily reminder, while keeping the others in a 3-ring binder. Also, consider giving some away as gifts or repurposing them as wrapping paper.
Use your coloring pages in multiple ways. Each design comes in a variety of sizes and you can print them as many times as you want. If you mess up, print another one. You can even color them on your iPad or iPhone using the Procreate app.
Coloring is a great activity for anyone at any age. You can use the coloring pages with your kids, in a Bible study, with your Sunday school or homeschool class, during family gatherings and devotions, at birthday parties, as a nursing-home activity, and more. What a great way to encourage adults and children to move away from their screens, as they hide God's Word in their hearts.

Calms My Mind and Heart Before Devotionals
Living Colors connects coloring pages with your devotional time. I’ve been doing it and am excited about how it helps calm my mind and heart before I start my devotionals. You can use whatever you chose to color with: coloring pencils, watercolor pencils, markers and crayons.
If you have children, they can do it along with you because you can copy as many pages as you want. I hope you’ll join me in calming yourself as you spend time with God.

If you want to color, meditate on God's Word, sense His presence and have a keepsake for days ahead, these coloring pages are for you.
“As a counselor working with teens, I keep coloring pages on hand for our sessions together. I have found that coloring is a calming activity that is helpful as they verbalize their thoughts and feelings.” Stacey
“Many doctors now have coloring pages in their waiting rooms. When I was getting my latest mammogram, my nurse told me they find patients seem to be less stressed if they color for a few minutes before the test. I’ve had a lot of mammograms and that was by far my favorite one.” Saundra Dalton
Family visiting hospitals
“Coloring is a powerful form of meditation. I personally found this to be true when my dad was in hospital for five weeks. During my visits I would bring my colored pencils and coloring book to pass the time while keeping dad company. The stress and immense sadness of seeing my dad fragile with terminal cancer would briefly leave my mind while I colored the picture and immersed myself into creating something beautiful.” - Fran
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have access to the previous month’s coloring pages?
When you sign up for Living Colors today, you will get access to this month’s content only.
If you’d like access to the previous month’s coloring pages and prayer journals, you can purchase them in our shop here.
Do I need any special software?
To download and print the coloring pages, prayer journals and bonus material, you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader. It’s a free software program available here. You can find common solutions to printing problems here. If you don’t see the print option on your computer, see this video here.
Can I print the coloring pages on something other than regular copy paper?
Yes! Depending on your printer, you may be able to print on a slightly heavier paper. You may also be able to feed a thicker paper through the back of your printer. The paper I use with my printer is Cardstock Paper, 67lb Vellum Bristol and it feeds through my printer without any issue. I use this paper with colored pencils. You can purchase it on Amazon here (this is my affiliate link).
I don’t have a printer. Can I still use your coloring pages?
Yes! You can have the pages printed each month at a local printer like Staples, FedEx or UPS. We have also created our prayer journals as interactive PDF's which means you can type into them and then save them to your computer. We recommend that you open the PDF on your computer and not on an internet browser as it doesn’t seem to save correctly from an internet browser.
Can I color digitally on my iPad or iPhone?
Absolutely! You can color the pages on an iPad or iPhone using the Procreate app. You can take a screenshot of the PDF to import it into the app.
See a tutorial on how to import the photo here and how to color it in Procreate here.
What colored pencils do you recommend?
You can use any pencils or markers you have available. You can purchase Crayola colored pencils very cheaply at any store or on Amazon here. If you want a higher quality colored pencil that’s also easier on your hands, I recommend Castle Art Supplies which comes with 72 colors and a case or if you're ready to make a big investment, Prismacolor with 150 colors is known to be the best (affiliate links).
Do you have print coloring books I can purchase?
We don’t have any print coloring books currently available but that is in the plans for the future so stay tuned!
Can I use your coloring pages with Bible journaling?
Yes! The 5x7 inch size can be used as a “tip-in.” See a tutorial here.
Do you have any copyright restrictions?
The files you receive each month as part of your Living Colors membership are for personal use only. This means you can print them off and use them for yourself and any groups or classes you lead as many times as you want. If you give the coloring page to someone in a group, they will need to join Living Colors to make additional copies for themselves and others.
You cannot sell the files or sell prints made from them. The artist, Shelley Hitz owns and retains all rights to the artwork.
Do you offer any scholarships at this time?
Please contact us with your current situation and the reason you want to be considered for a scholarship.
We evaluate each situation individually and do occasionally award scholarships in certain situations.
What paper should I use to print the lettering worksheets?
Most pens require smooth paper so they won't fray. The paper I use for printing lettering worksheets is HP premium paper. It’s smooth and yet can be used in a printer. You can also use tracing paper.
“On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, 'Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.'”
