‘We Can Do Hard Things’ Freebie

The Good News: Today I’m sharing a Subway Art freebie.

The Bad News: It’s a peace-offering since I’m not going to reopen the SFD Digital Store this year.

You see… My life is full… full of good things, but I’m having to adjust and prioritize. My fun side-business has to be put on the back burner for a long while. I was asked to be the President of the Relief Society in our local church congregation a few weeks ago, which makes my life a wee bit more full.

This quote, “We Can Do Hard Things” is my new mantra. I love it! It reminds me that I can make it through hard things with my spouse, my family, my friends, and most importantly… my Heavenly Father. I know I am strengthened by Him daily. Everyone has hard things… everyone. We need each other. I even remind my 3-year-old that HE CAN DO HARD THINGS… like pulling up his pants or cleaning up his room or eating 3 bites of that nasty dinner. This quote applies to all.

16×20 & 8×10 We Can Do Hard Things

4×6 We Can Do Hard Things

5×7 We Can Do Hard Things

p.s. I do have to apologize that all the images I shared are pretty random. There is no consistent color scheme in all the sizes and on some images there is a scripture from Alma 26:12… and others, a scripture from Mark 10:27. What can I say… I’m a spaz sometimes? Hopefully you’ll find one to enjoy… and another to share with a friend.

p.p.s. 16×20 prints well in an 8×10 size… so don’t let that frighten you – the dimensions are the same. Also… for your convenience the 3×4 cards are designed to print two-up on a 4×6 print.

p.p.p.s. quiet books… the LDS Intellectual Properties department has NOT given us the go-ahead with sharing the quiet books. I’m sad… like really sad. I’m not able to email the books to anyone. Sad. Someday, if I ever have the time, I’d love to offer them with text only and share the links to images on lds.org so you can create your own. sigh…

Most of All… Remember that
WE Can Do Hard Things!

    Hi Heather, A friend showed me your website last year right after Christmas. I love it and I wish you the best of luck with your newest addition to the family. I know you are busy, but I need to ask a favor. I have been waiting all year to print and use your Pres.Faust ‘I believe in Santa’ quote and today I tried to at Inkleys. They refused to let me print it and told me I need to contact you for a permission to print form. Could you please send that to me when you get the chance? I would appreciate it greatly! Thank you in advance!!!!!

    Question for you. I know that you put the scripture reference on purpose on the “We Can Do Hard Things” poster, and I really appreciate that- love the Mark verse!- but I teach in a gifted and talented classroom in public school. I would love to use the quote, but I can’t have the scripture reference. Do you have a version without the scripture reference? Thanks in advance if you do!

    I saw today on Pintest the quote “We Can Do Hard Things”. I had my neck fused and my landlord asked to move out by August 19th. I can’t lift anything over 10 pounds per the doctor. I can do hard things. I packed and moved us to San Antonio last year because my husband had just had open heart surgery. I can do hard things. My sister-in-law who is in charge of my father-in-laws estate will not release my husband inheritance and we have no money to move to pay for the deposit and first month rent or for the deposit for the two dogs. I can do hard things. I may have to put the dogs to sleep. My husband is sick and is working 50 and 60 hours a week to continue to pay for my daughter to live while she is finishing college and looking for a job. He can do hard things. My son is an addict, is living with us, will not work, he is sick with 4 bad teeth and we need $800.00 to get his teeth pulled, but I can do hard things. Our doctor told us last week that my husband and myself both have heart disease now because we have had to let our dental health to because of job loss for the last 10 years. I can do hard things. My husband is 64 years old and last night took early social security because we need the money so badly because the hourly job he has now just doesn’t pay the bills. He has a Masters degree, teaching certificate, and no one will hire him, he’s too old. He can do hard things. He cleans out cars in 100 plus heat for a living. I am disabled, and I live in chronic pain so much so that they are running out of things to try. I am depressed, I feel worthless and a burden to my family, but I can do hard things. We have been doing hard things for the last 25 plus years. We lost our home. We lost our saving several times. We have no retirement. We have no furnishing to sell. We have one beat up 2nd hand car that barley runs, thank God. We have been doing hard things for a long time now. I am still trying to find the light. There are millions of others that are in our boat if not worst. In shelters with young children. Where does it end! They are doing hard things. My health is gone, I can do hard things. I hope someday soon that God will take us all so we can stop doing hard things. Sincerely in Christ your sister

    Thank you so much! Just printed the navy one for our dining room. I have three daughters (9, 7, 2) and we are needing a little reminder that indeed we CAN do hard things! Off to get a frame and get this gem up!
