With the amount of times I pick up my phone for this that and the other, it’s important to me that I’m constantly looking at a beautiful reminder of Truth on the lock screen. Apparently you feel the same way, because every time I create prints or lock screens, you send me pictures of the art on your walls and phones!
With summer just beginning, I sat down to create new lock screens for the coming months. I asked on Instagram if you prefer bright and colorful or calm and soothing colors, clean or script fonts, and Scripture or quotes. The polls backfired a bit because the response was nearly 50/50 on each one. (Ha.) So instead of making 4 or 5 lock screens, I designed 10 with a good variety!
Hopefully one of these will fit the look you love. Download instructions (and links to additional freebies) can be found at the bottom of this post!
10 free summer iPhone lock screens:
how to download the lock screens:
If you’re on your phone, hold down on an image until you see options that include “save photo.” If you’re on a computer, right-click on an image and select “Open Image in New Tab.” Then right-click on the full image that comes up, download, email the image to yourself, and save it to your camera roll.
Then, from your iPhone, go to Settings –> Wallpaper –> Choose a New Wallpaper –> Camera Roll. Select the image and then click “Still” (not “Perspective”). You can then move the image around if you’d like. I always pretend like I’m shrinking the image (think: the opposite of if you were to zoom in). This allows the entire image to show.
For additional prints or iPhone lock screens, visit the Freebies page, check out the “lock screen” Highlight on my Instagram profile, or subscribe to emails. (Email subscribers receive exclusive prints and gifts right away and then every 1-2 months throughout the year.)
If you would like to save this post for later (or share it with friends) you can pin the image below or any of the images in this post! I’d so appreciate that. Truly, it makes a big difference. I love creating encouraging resources for you, but it sure does help others find the prints/lock screens/freebies when you spread the word. Thank you! xoxo
I've been not-so-patiently waiting to tell you about this! I'm honored to be among the fantastic line-up of speakers for the free (seriously... it's totally free) FlourishWriters Conference. I know. It sounds too good to be true, but there's no catch. It really is...read more
Last year, just a few days after Valentine’s Day, the grocery store clerk made fun of me in the checkout line. I emptied my cart, placed each item on the conveyor belt, and tried to keep my mouth from falling open as the gentlemen looked me in the eyes and spoke words...read more

Three years ago, I taped four pieces of paper to my bedroom door. Before I face the day, I come face-to-face with a calendar from 2016. Here we are at the close of 2018, and I’m still standing in front of these pages, stumbling out of bed and rubbing sleep from my...read more
I am what you might call a "book person." I feel out of sorts when I'm not in the middle of at least one book, and it's normal for me to have three or four going at any given time. Stacks of books under the bed? Check. An overflowing bookshelf? Of course. Library...read more
One of the ways I intentionally practice appreciating the beautiful but so-very-ordinary stuff of real life and regular days is by keeping track of what I’m learning. My friend Emily is the mastermind behind this simple but meaningful practice. For several years now,...read more
I spent Thanksgiving alone this year. This isn't the first time that I've FaceTimed from twelve hours away, wiped a tear or two from my eyes, turned up the music in my too-quiet apartment, and looked forward to Christmas. And it's okay. Really, it is. As a single girl...read more
The once-a-year post of great deals is back, and this one is crazy good. I mean - $5 off a book purchase at Amazon is enough to make me happy. Add in everything else below, and Christmas has come early. (On Monday, we'll be back to regularly scheduled programming......read more
There’s a game I like to play, and it never fails to catch people by surprise. Here’s how it works: I invite someone to grab coffee and once we’ve found a comfortable seat, our hands wrapped around a cup of something delicious, I look into their eyes and say these...read more
The words on these two free prints are ones I need to hear in my right-this-second life. Maybe you do, too? I spent this weekend working on the next edition of The Table -- my monthly(ish) newsletter full of behind-the-screen updates, in-process thoughts, my favorite...read more
