Download and print off this coloring sheet to use with your children around Mother’s Day. It was created by Mandy Groce, an Sojourner, elder's wife, and local artist.  Mandy will be putting together a number of sheets like this for my friend Tony Kummer at http://ministry-to-children.com. The coloring page features a mother and her son along with the prayer, “God, I am thankful for Mommy!” The scene is framed by a large heart shape.
