Welcome!

I’m Shannon Childs, a designer who wants to make you smile. I started Doodles Invigorate to creatively share my thoughts and inspire others to think positive. I do this through imagery and sharing my personal life experiences. I enjoy symbolism because it engages the audience to find their own meaning to the image. These doodles have special meaning to me. I hope you will find your own special meaning as well.

Since I’ve started Doodles Invigorate I’ve made a major transition in my life—transitioning into Jesus. You can see that transition through the posts. I went from encouraging through positive thinking to encouraging through the word of God. Some posts have scripture references. I encourage you to read them and dig deep into the word. The bible has great power and all the tools for successful living.

You will see and lot of happy-go-lucky stuff on this web site. I believe a person has to counter the negative with positive. The best way to do that is through love. You will hear me say spread love a lot. I’m not talking about any kind of love, but the love of Christ.

I think it’s vital for people to continually search for hidden treasures to make life special and continually renew their minds. Doodles Invigorate is designed to help us find love, hope, joy, and peace in all things. I hope you enjoy this web site and are encouraged.  Please feel free to share the doodles that inspire you! I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, even if you disagree. Thank you for joining me on this journey!

Doodle: to draw or scribble idly.
Invigorate: to give vigor to; fill with life and energy; energize.

  14. Fantastic! No wonder you thought awesome of https://thiabasilialicona.wordpress.com/2015/01/22/there-is-a-huge-difference-between-genuine-kindness-and-all-the-hype-about-positive-thinking-and-the-new-age-philosophies/. Now, my dear sister, I am graciously fading from Blogging 101 because I just can’t take the immense wave of the hype that goes on, but, that does not mean that I wish to fade from the likes of your post. I will not post for a while, but, there is a lot in https://thiabasilialicona.wordpress.com that could strengthen the message in your blog even more, not because thia/Basilia, but, because the Presence of our Savior within my heart, His Presence is reaching out to all of His children by all means available including you & me. So, plz keep the site in my mind and keep in touch if you wish. 🙂

    • Thanks for sharing. You give a lot of great insight. You are right when you say a lot of positive thinking philosophies are self righteous and materialistic. I like to take the best out of all things; while allowing God lead and change me. Thanks for visiting my site.

  16. Hello again, my doodling friend. This week I am delving into the world of Pinterest for the first time. I’ve been learning about copyright laws since I began blogging, but just to be sure…Do you mind if I pin some of your artwork to one of my Pinterest boards?

  17. Hello,

    I hope you are enjoying your renewed blog.  I’m glad you were able to come back and share more of your insights.  🙂

    I’ve been working on a little video project of late that I just published on my blog.  For some reason, when I published the post, your blog kept popping into my mind.  I couldn’t shake the feeling, so I decided I should share a link to the video with you.  If you have time to watch it, great.  Maybe it will be a blessing to you, or to someone you know.  If you don’t have the time or inclination to watch it, no problem.  I understand how busy life can get!

    I pray blessings on your upward path in the service of God.  Have a great day!
