There’s Still Time To Order Illuminating Ladies!


After three years in the making, Illuminating Ladies: A Coloring Book of Mormon Women is headed to print! We are so proud of this beautiful work of art, and there’s still time to order!  All orders placed by March 5th will receive half off future digital downloads (we will be offering some select images and bios from the coloring book for digital download after we’ve gone to print).

Some things you might not know about “Illuminating Ladies”:

  • The book contains 25 unique illustrations with full-page bios of each woman.
  • It includes an index of further reading about each woman in the back of the book.
  • It also has a “My Hero” page, so each reader can add the woman they wish we would have in the book.

These coloring books would be great for Girls’ Camp, to use in YW/YM lessons, as a YW/YM advancement gift, as a baptism gift, as a Mother’s Day gift, or to just have on hand to color during Sacrament Meeting.  While international shipping was not initially available, single-book orders are now available with international shipping to select countries, and international bulk order pricing will be available soon (please contact the shop owner via etsy if you’re interested in international bulk shipping, or if your country is not listed).

Over the next week, we will be highlighting some of these women on our Facebook page with short biographical information and a headshot of their coloring page so that you can see how gorgeous this book is and get a feel for the variety of women we will be highlighting.  Each one has an inspiring story, and knowing more about these women will give all of us more Mormon women to be proud of and come to know.  Preorder your copy today!
