This month's coloring pages:
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:
Preview what a typical prayer journal looks like below.
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:
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).
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.
Are you living your faith?
Placing our complete faith and trust in Christ alone for salvation is the first step toward a vibrant, living relationship with the God of the universe. There are many steps on our journey of growing spiritually.
Just as a newborn baby needs time to grow and mature physically, so new believers in Christ need time to grow and mature spiritually. How comforting to know that God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are with us every step of the way.
Let’s grow together!

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:
Living Colors just brought me to a new level of coloring fun and spending time with God. These pages bring God’s Word alive and the price is so affordable everyone can join.
I can’t wait to get each month’s coloring pages and journals. This is the best coloring deal I have seen in a long time...and the bonuses are fabulous! Join me today and let's have fun coloring together!
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.
Color your stress away!

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. In the member area, we have provided a JPG version of each coloring page so you can easily import them into the app.
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!
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.
HP Premium paper: https://amzn.to/2PoBzwl
Tracing paper: https://amzn.to/2PpLTnQ
What brush lettering pens do you recommend?
We give you a beginner's guide to brush lettering as well as our recommendations for pens in the member area.
However, you can find the pens I recommend for beginners here.
Am I locked into a one-year commitment?
Living Colors is currently a month-to-month subscription. There are no long term commitments. Yay! If you want to cancel, simply contact us and we will process your request.
The amount of content available in Living Colors each month is amazing.
I work with a variety of women from pre-teens to the elderly and there really is something for everyone. Some of the coloring sheets would be appropriate for younger children as well.
Whether you want to color, increase your artistic skills, or draw closer to Jesus, this is the membership for you.
Living Colors deepens your spiritual walk while inspiring your creativity. This content is created in and with prayer and you can feel God's presence in every unit and in its monthly themes.
I love the personal touch Shelley gives in the videos, the coloring pages, and the prayer journaling pages.
Shelley always gives more than expected and you will be blessed and encouraged by taking Living Colors.
“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.'”
John 7:37-38 (NIV)
