The LDS Coloring Pages Index is Complete!

… well, or almost complete. I suppose it will never be done because new issues of the Friend magazine will have coloring pages. Then someday the Primary manuals will be re-written… horrors… more work to do!

For now I have finished the indexing of coloring pages in the Friend back to 1971 and the current Primary manuals. I am looking forward next Sunday to beginning my new Sabbath hobby: FamilySearch Indexing.

Also, I will try to occasionally post here items of LDS interest.

If I become forgetful and get behind on the newest issues of the Friend, please let me know.

As always, your comments are welcome below.

    Matia, thank you, thank you, thank you! This truly is an incredible service that you have done. A few years back I was serving as the chorister in Primary and the Stake encouraged us to only use visual aids from official church sources. I can’t tell you what I would have done to have this resource then. I now find myself as a nursery leader and a mom of a 4 and 2 year old and as you can imagine, I will gratefully reap the benefits of all your hard work. I can’t thank you enough.

    Thank you for the time and effort you have put into this page. Teaching Sunbeams I try to create coloring pages that reinforce the principle we learn each week. Since finding your page I have been able to copy pictures and create the perfect page for each lesson. Thank you!

  7. Wow Matia,

    Talk about a labor of love. I’ve been perusing coloring page blogs this morning, and this one comes up near the top for the search term “coloring page blog,” forget the fact that you’re focusing only LDS coloring pages published in the Friend Magazine. I guess, you’ve included primary manuals here as well. Glad I took the time to actually read what you were doing here, or what you have done.

    Thanks,
    Brent

    My wife and I teach the 7/8 year olds. We have used you site for years and love it. Today when I tried to use it I got an invalid request response when I clicked on a link. I hope it is a quickly fixable bug as we prefer your site to all others for material for the kids.
    Thanks

    Thanks, I will check it out. Yep, changes to the site keeps me on my toes. At least I do try to tell you what Friend month, year and page number you can find the coloring page on, so at least you can try to navigate to it on the lds.org.

    Thanks so much for your kind comment. About the invalid request: that kind of stuff happens sometimes. It seems to be working now.
