Since the Church’s founding nearly 200 years ago, our unique history and culture has produced and attracted a remarkable array of women who have become leaders in their communities — from early suffragists like Martha Hughes Cannon to anti-apartheid activist Julia Navimbela, artists Minerva Teichert (painter) to Fannie Nampeyo (potter), political trailblazers like Esther Peterson and Olene Walker, and theologians from Eliza R. Snow to Chieko Okazaki.
Exponent II celebrates these lives and others in the second edition of the “Illuminating Ladies” coloring book, where you can read short vignettes of their contribution to the world around them while de-stressing as you color beautiful illustrations by artist Molly Cannon Hadfield. Or make copies of individual pages to share with your Primary or Youth classes. The books make great gifts for family, friends, ward members, or anyone you’d like to hear quote more women in their church talks — it even includes an index with resources for further reading!
