Hello, my name is Matia, member of the Woodstock Ward of the Marietta Georgia East Stake
This index of coloring pages was inspired by my own desire to find LDS themed coloring pages for my children, especially my daughter, pictured below, who loves to color.
For your information, LDS and Latter-day Saint are terms that refer to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and the Church is the best thing that ever happened to me. For more information about the Church, you can check out www.mormon.org.
The LDS coloring pages appear in the PDF and HTML versions of the children's Friend magazine at lds.org, but it can take quite a while to browse several issues on-line. I used to find the coloring pages by getting out the old paper copies and flipping through them. Then when I found something I liked, I would go to the Church website and print it out.
Even faster now is to browse the list I made. When the preview pictures appear on HTML pages on lds.org, I have included the link. Viewing and printing from PDF files is a little less convenient, but you will note that some coloring pages, mostly the "hidden pictures," can only be viewed from the PDF Friend. I have included the link to each year's PDF Friend page.
This is a work in progress, a Sabbath-day hobby, and I update every month when the new Friend comes out. I am also in the midst of updating links from the "classic" lds.org to the "new" lds.org. I have still found it to be true that there are some coloring pages, especially in the earlier years, that can only be found in the PDF Friends.
For those of you who discovered this index first on Squidoo, let me explain that I felt a separate website would be more useful -- the pages will load faster if they are smaller for instance. Also, I would like to have a little more control over the advertising that appears on these pages, especially filtering out those advertisements that seem to be in less than good taste to me. It is the nature of contextual advertising that I may not discover a "bad ad" immediately when it appears on my web pages. If you ever see an advertisement on LDSColoringPages.net that ridicules the Church or proselytes its members, please notify me by leaving a comment on my blog. (Please be sure to include the wording of the advertisement and your country.) I will then be able to create a filter to remove that ad. I would be so grateful. Thank you.
