Scriptures to celebrate Veterans

We just put together a pack of Scripture Stickies (stickable Bible verses in a fun format for gifting and sharing) called “Soldier for God” (will soon be available at www.scripturestickies.com) and here are the verses that we included:

You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier. – 2 Timothy 2:3-4

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go. -Joshua 1:9

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled. -2 Corinthians 10:3-6

Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. -Ephesians 6:13-17

Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. -Psalm 91:3-6

Introducing the Scripture Stickies Scripture Jar

 

Are you looking for a fun project to do with the kids?  We have a hands-on Scripture Jar craft that you can create as a family.  Each child can help or make their own.  The end result is a beautiful jar filled with God’s Word that you can keep or give as a gift (birthdays, just because, back to school teacher gift, start thinking about Christmas, etc.)

scriptrure_jar_open_2

The Scripture Stickies Scripture Jar kit includes enough encouraging rainbow colored Bible verses to fit in a mason jar, ribbon, stickers, lid label you can personalize/decorate, and a pack of Scripture Stickies.  You provide the jar and the loving hands to put it together.

You may have seen this craft before.  Ours is special because at the center of the jar is a pack of Scripture Stickies!  The other fun part  is that you get to put it together.  When we assembled ours we enjoyed reading each verse as we cut, folded, and arranged it in the jar.  There were jobs for every member of our family from big to small.  We have a toddler and a baby so we did the cutting while they got to fold and crunch and stuff the verses into the jar.  Older children will love decorating the label with markers and arranging stickers on the jar as well.

You can order the kit in our e-store today.  Just click here and get free shipping!

God bless you,
Julie

Bible Bee

Boy, it’s hard keeping up with blog posts! Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.  :(  But I do have lots to share so let’s jump into one of the most exciting summer opportunities for families: the National Bible Bee.  This program offers your children a chance to study the Bible with you and memorize God’s Word.  There are local events and a contest and a chance to move on to Nationals and win over $260,000 in scholarships!  And the biggest prize is storing God’s Word in their hearts and minds!  I volunteered as a judge at Nationals two years ago and it was a very cool experience!  It is a great way to meet other local families too.  We produce a set of Scripture Stickies with the verses for each year and it will be for sale in the E-store.  You can pre-order it already if you want: http://store.biblebee.org/

fun Scripture resources

I I recently ordered a pack of Truth Cards (http://www.truthcards.org/) and I wanted to encourage you to check them out.  They a flash cards for kids with pictures and words and a corresponding Bible verse on the back.  I liked mine so much I laminated the cards so they wouldn’t get bent or torn.  We read a few each night with our kids and we are already memorizing the verses!

The next resource is a colorful and fun placemat that features the Word of God during mealtime.  I mentioned these before but they are so fun I wanted to share again.  They are called Tabletop Truths (http://tabletoptruths.blogspot.com/) and they are really neat!  There are so many designs to choose from.

Either of these would make a great Valentine’s gift for your children (in addition to a pack of LOVE Scripture Stickies of course!).  We actually have a heart shaped pack as well that is lots of fun for Valentine’s Day.  We love our families and friends but of course God loves them even more – so remind them of His love by sharing his Word with them!

Welcome Baby Olivia

Thank you to all of you Scripture Stickies users who have been praying – our little bundle of joy arrived safely on November 23, 2012 at 10:03pm.  We were blessed with a natural delivery and beautiful birth.  We called upon the name of Jesus many times and His presence was felt by all there.  Life with a newborn and toddler is an exciting new adventure!
