4th of July Party Printables and Thoughts About Freedom



Have you found and visited the "I Dig Pinterest" blog yet? My friend, Christine, gathers ideas that she likes from Pinterest and then tries them out with her family. She posts her results, recipes, ideas, and creations there every week. Christine asked me to design some party printables for her readers and followers to help celebrate the 4th of July, so I created some cupcake toppers, a few food tent labels, and a banner that says "Let Freedom Ring" that you can print and decorate with--for FREE! Check out Christine's original post here to see some other creative ideas for the cupcake toppers! Her ideas are so cute!

I think the 4th of July is such a great holiday. Besides the fact that my husband gets the day off to spend with the family, it's a fantastic reminder of the freedoms and liberties that my family and I get to enjoy as citizens of the United States of America. We have the privilege to work, worship however we'd like, and have safety and protection in the towns and cities we live in.

Freedom is something that our Heavenly Father wants each of His children to have. The scriptures teach us that the Spirit of God is the spirit of freedom (Alma 61:15) and that if we follow Christ, we will be a free people (D&C 38:22). Moroni gloried in the freedom of his country (Alma 48:11), because he knew that his people would be more righteous and closer to Christ if they were able to have the freedom to worship. Many righteous people in the scriptures fought for their freedom, as well as soldiers who have fought for the freedoms in our time.

I am grateful for freedom. I am grateful for the independence of our beautiful country. Let freedom ring!

What are you doing to celebrate the 4th of July with your family?

My good friend already printed her banner and hung it on her mantel!
