A Piano's Purpose

I'm so excited to share my latest project with you.
I was contacted by Al Fox and the fabulous team at Deseret Industries and they asked me if I would repurpose a piano for a film they were working on.
I thought to myself, "Sure, I restore pieces of furniture all the time. This should be fun!"
Then I saw the piano for the first time...

A Piano's Purpose - the inspirational journey of a piano!

...and couldn't wait to get my hands on it! How beautiful is this piano? 
There were a lot of dents, paint spills, water damage, etc - but I loved the structure and all the details - I knew I could give it a lot of love and a whole new look!

Check out the latest Mormon Message to see the piano reveal!


I will never look at a film the same way again. I had a full-on film crew at my home, in my garage and living room. My mind was blown to see the "behind the scenes" of these films. So many hours, prayers, miracles, incredible talent, and a creative vision to make this all happen.

I will never look at the DI the same again. They are so much more than a thrift store! Just take a peek at Mike's inspiring story to see what I mean.

We are giving the piano away to one lucky winner!! Get the details here...

Good luck everyone!

Summer Book of Mormon Reading Challenge

This summer I wanted to encourage my family to read the Book of Mormon - I was inspired by the last conference talk by President Thomas S. Monson where he encouraged us all to read the Book of Mormon.

I came up with this Summer Book of Mormon Reading Challenge to help my family achieve our goal and wanted to share it with any of you who are looking for a summer challenge as well.

Scripture Coloring Page: I Will Go

One thing I'm trying to create more of on LDS Lane is coloring pages with scriptures. I think these are great reverence tools for sacrament meeting and are also great additions to lessons in primary. 
Many of you have mentioned that you use my coloring pages on the covers of sacrament meeting programs and I absolutely love that idea!
These are actually great for any age!

To download this "I Will Go" printable coloring page CLICK HERE.

Also, if you have a verse in the Book of Mormon that you would like to see put into a coloring page please comment below. I LOVE suggestions!

Free Cross Stitch Pattern: I Love to See the Temple

I often get asked what my favorite primary song is and I immediately think of "I Love to See the Temple". I remember singing this song as a little girl and making it a goal to get married in the temple someday. Primary songs have such a powerful, long-lasting message don't they?

Since the CTR cross stitch pattern was such a hit, I decided to create this temple version. Who else is LOVING that the cross-stitch trend is back!? I taught my daughters and they are loving it!

13 Articles of Faith Coloring Pages

I've been working on this fun project for a couple of months and I finally have all twelve Articles of Faith available in coloring pages!

What are the Articles of Faith? They are 13 basic beliefs that we believe in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Get more info about them on

I've been wanting to create Articles of Faith coloring pages for over a year and I'm so excited that I finally accomplished these. One of my favorite things is when readers like yourselves email me pictures or tag me in pictures where your amazing children are using my coloring pages. I was recently released as the Primary president in our ward after 3 1/2 years and young children have and will always have such a special place in my heart.

Free Cross Stitch Pattern - CTR Shield

I was looking for a cross stitch pattern for this year's 2017 Primary Theme - "Choose the Right" and didn't find anything I really liked.

I decided to design my own and wanted to share it with any of you cross-stitch fans out there! 
My daughters love stitching and they are trying this one next!

Pick any color you want and frame it, put it on a pillow, or display it in an embroidery hoop!

LDS Primary Singing Time Ideas

I absolutely love primary choristers! I have to admit though, singing is not one of my strengths and so I truly admire those who can get up each week and teach the children the wonderful primary songs. I'm now in my thirties and I still remember learning those powerful primary songs that have stuck in my head throughout the years!

LDS Primary Singing Time Ideas at

Well, thanks to amazing primary choristers and DIY-ers, today you'll find many fun activities and LDS Primary singing time ideas!

Some are a piece of cake and only require one item, while others take a bit more time but can be used over and over again!
