Since today is National Siblings Day, I wanted to share a coloring page I designed especially for brothers and sisters. This one features 2 Thessalonians 3:13. “As for the rest of you, dear brothers and sisters, never get tired of doing good.”
That’s a good reminder, not only for children, but for parents, too. Wouldn’t you agree? Families need that kind of encouragement. Because sometimes we do grow weary in doing the things we ought to do. But God is glorified when we keep at it, anyway.
You’ll find this same page in my newest devotional journal, Sweet Child of Mine. My other journals were so warmly received. This one was the brainchild of a customer who’d bought Moment by Moment for her daughter and requested I create one just for moms. So that’s exactly what I did. We released it in May, just in time for Mother’s Day.
In the meantime, I invite you to check out the other titles in this series. At over 200 pages apiece, they’re packed with writing prompts, coloring pages, word studies, and scads of Bible verses. See what readers are saying about them here.
If you’d prefer to skip the journaling exercises, I also have a brand new line of richly detailed, Scripture-based coloring books. These were designed with grown-ups in mind, but are good for all ages.

Ideas for using these free printable coloring pages:
- If your younger children have a hard time sitting still through church, let them color these Scriptures during the Sunday sermon. Older kids might rather take notes with this printable.
- My children and I enjoy coloring these sheets together while my husband reads aloud to us in the evening. (For a special treat, I let them use my Prismacolor pencils. But only with supervision, as they are professional-grade and a little pricey.)
- I give these printables to my children during school time, too. That way, they can color at the table while I work with their older siblings, and vice versa. (Since each of them has their own devotional journal, I’ll sometimes just assign pages out of that for them to fill in or color — that way, they get some handwriting practice, too!)
- I do one of several things with the pages once they’ve finished coloring them (and none of them wind up on our refrigerator): Sometimes we send them in letters to penpals. I might glue one into a child’s scrapbook or tack it on his bulletin board. Our littlest guys have even been known to frame them as a creative arts entry for the State Fair — there’s nothing like winning a ribbon and cash premium to motivate them to do their best job coloring future pages!
