About the Author:
Pamela R. Jensen
was born into a family of 10 children, she was the oldest girl and
second child. She spent a majority of her childhood entertaining her
younger siblings. Drawing has always been apart of who she is, always
sketching anything and everything. She can remember getting into trouble
for drawing on the walls. She now lives with her husband a retired
farmer and miner in Grantsville, UT. They have five children, and ten
grandchildren who love to draw with grandma. I sketch and draw because I
can’t stop. She tells her grandchildren, put a pencil or a pen in my
hand and it automatically starts to draw, almost without thinking. She
has made some pretty impressive doodles in her time.
I usually take coloring and sticker books to church to keep my kids
quiet, but the books are rarely church related. I’ve had some guilt over
that because while I want my kids to be quiet during
church, I also want them to learn something other than what
cutie mark Pinkie Pie has. This activity book is the perfect solution.
It’s full of coloring pages and quiet activities related to church and
I expected the activities to be word searches and crossword puzzles, but
this book as some new activities. It has things like finishing a
half drawn picture and then coloring it, copying the bishop’s tie that
day, and practicing to fill out a tithing slip. There are matching games
and mazes too.
This is a great activity book to have. It keeps my kids quiet and keeps their minds on church.
