13 Inspiring Christian Calendars for 2021

Between natural disasters and a worldwide pandemic, 2020 hasn’t played nice with any of us. It’s time for a fresh start. It’s time to take the lessons from this year and start again with new goals and new hope.

That’s why we are excited to announce our new 2021 calendars, brought to you by our fabulous artists, expert photographers, and hardworking production team. We craft each calendar to invite inspiration into 2021. Each is a reminder that God is deeply aware of the challenges we are facing and that He “is preserving you from day to day, by lending you breath, that ye may live and move and do according to your own will, and even supporting you from one moment to another.” (Mosiah 2:21)

J. Kirk Richards 2021 Calendar - come, follow me

Many of the Christian calendars we’ve mentioned so far also include scenes from the Bible. However, J. Kirk Richard’s focus on Judeo-Christian themes brings a few New Testament stories that get less attention. For example,

The Road to Emmaus and Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Best of all, this calendar features J. Kirk’s contemporary style.

Scott Jarvie’s calendar only shows a small portion of his work. It includes some beautiful temples that don’t always get as much attention. This includes Rome, Phoenix, Nashville, Boston, and even Rexburg.

Robert A. Boyd’s work usually consists of LDS temple pictures, but for his 2021 calendar, we decided to feature his Church History pieces.

The title, Ask in Faith, is reflected in every monthly scene. From the Joseph Smith Cabin to the Grandin Press, and finally to Carthage Jail.

It’s an inspiring collection of Robert’s work that can bring inspiration long after 2021. 

Jorge Cocco's 2021 calendar cover. Painting of Nephi holding Liahona.

Jorge Cocc 2021 calendar - book of mormon stories

Jorge Cocco’s “sacrocubism” brings a new perspective to many familiar scenes in the Book of Mormon.

His LDS art pieces throughout the year follow the story of Lehi’s family from their journey into the desert until Christ’s glorious appearance. It’s not one you want to miss.   

The best part? Besides the end of 2020, that is. Each of these Christian calendars includes a free print from the artist. If you’re still not sure which ones you want, you can visit each artists’ page on our website to get a better feel for their style. 

The next step, of course, is to pencil in all of those 2021 goals and plans. What does 2021 look like for you? And what meaningful artwork has carried you through this past year?  

We have lots of new art coming in - Don't miss out!

And don't worry; we publish art, not spam. In line with many principles of art, we believe good things come in small doses.
