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.
