For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light!

Lately my church back home in Washington has been encouraging members of the congregation to make illustrations for the covers of our church bulletins. So far I guess they have all been precious, hilarious, stick figure drawings by all of the kids. That's gonna be hard to follow but here's what I came up with. It's for one of the readings this Sunday, Matthew 11. 25-30. I focused mostly on this part:
"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and the burden is light."
My biblical illustration debut also coincides with my good friend Sierra's sermonizing debut, wish I could have been there to hear it! <3
Hope you enjoy!


  1. Thanks April! It was really special to have you there in spirit and in illustration. Your drawing really helped this verse take on new meaning. Sierra did a great job too.

  2. Thank you so much - You helped me with my Children's Address for Sunday. I needed a good illustration - yours was the only one I could find on the internet!
