Hanging Scripture on Your Walls

If you come around here often enough you will come to realize, that I love filling our home with d├ęcor and items that are meaningful.  It is also important to me that our home reflects our style and current living situation.  Now obviously not everything can fall into all those categories, but it helps to eliminate unnecessary clutter.  I am still working on weeding out things to make more room for things that are meaningful and will bless us and our guests that enter our home.  But that is a never ending task and is something you have to do over and over again over time.  One of the simplest ways I fill our home with meaningful things is by placing reminders and verses on chalkboards or in frames around our home, that provide an encouragement or an uplifting word.  It’s a great way to keep God’s Word front and center in your home.  It also allows you to switch things up from time to time.  

It even talks in the Bible about hanging scripture around your home.  In Deuteronomy 6:6-9 it says, Write these commandments that I’ve given you today on your hearts. Get them inside of you and then get them inside your children. Talk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street; talk about them from the time you get up in the morning to when you fall into bed at night. Tie them on your hands and foreheads as a reminder; inscribe them on the doorposts of your homes and on your city gates.

I can’t tell you how something so simple has made an impact on our home.  So today, I want to introduce you to some of my favorite shops and resources to get awesome scripture prints for your walls.

Inspirational Monday #6

I started Inspirational Mondays to help get my week started with some sweet reminders and inspiration, because who doesn't need a boost on a Monday? I know I do.   I also want to start sharing some things I am grateful for from the last week to these posts, because gratitude changes everything. :)

1) Pretty tulips my mother-in-law dropped off after a rough day
2) Admiring fake flowers while it still feels like winter around here
3) Spring mantel decorating
4) Church in our pj's
5) More fake flower admiring
6) Our office space, that after a struggle to decorate is finally coming together

Here are a few great things that have inspired me this week:

You Are Enough - Shauna Niequist
What Will You Leave Behind? - Anna Versaci Design

This week, I lost a very dear friend, way too soon.  She was an inspiration to all that were in her life and was supportive in everything I did.  I am so thankful for her friendship.  Never will I know anyone like her and I thank the Lord that I got to have her in my life. I'm not ready to say goodbye, but so very grateful for her example.

I hope you all have a wonderful and inspiring week!
