“Thee lift me and I’ll lift thee, and we’ll ascend together.”
I first heard this phrase in Linda K. Burton’s General Conference talk and loved it immediately. I see it as the ultimate goal of all authentic relationships. Whether we’re talking about relationships in marriage, siblings, parents, or friends, ideally we all work together to lift each other and as we lift we ascend together. Such beautiful words.
A couple of months ago I was asked to do some hand lettering and artwork on chalkboards for a wedding and this quote was requested. I sketched it several times in my sketchbook and was pleased with how this version turned out. And now I’d love to share it with you!
You can print it on high quality paper and hang it as is, or print it as a super fun and uplifting coloring page.
Here is my 6 year old son’s interpretation. I love that he went for the use of negative space and left the lettering white. He also said that he’s planning to “color a bunch of pages and sell them to Moms to look at. They’ll like that right?” So, Moms, if you want to buy one to look at, you know where to find it. ๐
