Welcome to the brand NEW Scrap Your Faith Challenge!!

Over the last year and a half I seem to be taking more & more photos of a part of my life that is relatively new to me. Just after Easter in 2010, I was sitting at my computer when I had what I can only describe as a spiritual awakening. I was on a scrapbook challenge site that a friend of mine ran. While surfing the site, I came across a request that she had posted. Her father was very ill & she was asking for prayers for him. Up until then I could probably count the number of prayers I'd ever prayed for on one hand, but I thought...it couldn't hurt for me to pray for her dad, right? So I did. In the middle of praying for her father, I came to the realization of just how much I needed God in my life. What happened next was so overwhelming, but to keep this story short let's just say my life was changed forever that night. That was the night God intervened in my life and showed me just how deep my need for a Savior was. That was the night He led me to salvation.

Ever since that night my life has been turned upside down. Being a scrapbooker, I keep feeling a need to document as much of this new life as possible. So, in order to get started doing just that I thought, why not start a New Challenge & encourage other women of faith to do the same?!

Challenge Outline

1. This challenge is open to scrappers of ALL faiths, and it is my hope for it to become a place of sharing, healing, & encouragement as we strive to document this very personal part of our lives. I only ask that all participants be sensitive & respectful of the beliefs of others.

2. Daily scripture passages and weekly sketches will be posted to help inspire us to Scrap our Faith! I'll probably throw in a few lyrics to worship songs & hyms from time to time as well since I listen to so much faith-based music too. **(If anyone has a favorite passage of scripture they would like to offer for the daily posting, please PM me w/the book, chapter & verse(s) and I will be sure to add it to the list!)**

3. LO's created DO NOT have to incorporate the daily scripture postings, they are simply being given for inspiration. You are welcome to scrap about anything relating to your faith. (Example: baptisms/church events & activities/conferences or concerts you attended/mission trips you've been on, etc.)

4. Scrap as little or as much as you are inspired to scrap, share the love and HAVE FUN!! : )

Daily Scripture Inspiration

10/1~Luke 2:9-11 [NASB] "And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord."

10/2~John 3:16-17 [ESV] "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him."

10/3~Matthew 11:28-29 [NLT] Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls."

10/4~Mark 9:37 [NLT] “Anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes not only me but also my Father who sent me.”

10/5~Proverbs 3:5-6 [NKJV] "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths."

10/15~John 8:31-32 [NKJV] Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

10/16~John 5:25 [NASB] "Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live."

10/17~John 10:14-16 & 27-30 [NIV] “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd."....."My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”

10/24~John 1:12-13 [NKJV] "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God."

10/25~Galatians 2:20 [NIV] "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."

10/26~Acts 1:7-8 [ESV] He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

10/27~Hebrews 5:8-10 [HCSB] "Though He was God’s Son, He learned obedience through what He suffered. After He was perfected, He became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey Him, and He was declared by God a high priest in the order of Melchizedek."

Jami, this is an awesome, inspired idea. Thank you for starting it. I think I may be in over my head for sketches, but I would love to follow along. Maybe I can stack with another challenge. So happy to be here. I keep Neh. 8:10b in my siggy because it's my life verse.

Spent part of the morning working on cards...and spent the remaining part of the day, unpacking boxes in our garage, while looking for a specific pack of paper.

Thankfully & happily, I finally found it!

Sounds like you had a busy National Card Making Day Kelly! Glad to hear you found your paper too. I hate it when I know that I have something and I just can't find it, lol.

Happy Sunday everyone!

It's my FAVORITE day of the week & I am looking forward to worshiping w/my church family & enjoying having a Sunday off for a change! : )

How are you all spending your Sunday's?

Had trouble picking out a verse 4 today...thought I was going to use a certain one & then when I finally found it in the Word it wasn't what I was really looking for. Then I came across the verse above in Psalms & knew it was perfect for us!

God is so great even in the small ways he leads us.

Hi there & welcome Paula! I was driving my DSS 2 school this morning & the sky way breathtakingly beautiful! There were clouds dotted all around & across the sun & beams of sunlight shining through them...kinda wish I wasn't in the car so I could have taken a picture, lol. Maybe I'll try to get a pic of the sky tomorrow after I get off work. We have such beautiful sunrises here in FL & I hardly ever see or appreciate them...sigh.

Think I just figured out today's verse though! Wishing you all a blessed day!

I feel a Psalm, God's glory or a heavenly sunrise Scripture coming on...

One of my favorite 'morning'-themed Scriptures is...

Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23)

Here's my layout from the other day...

Thanks so much for your prayers & patience!

I sat down & finally loaded some updates on my laptop. Hopefully, that was the quick 'fix' to the problem. For what it's worth, my printer was acting up as well.

I'm sure you & DH had a blast @the fair Paula. I spent today w/my DSS-took him 4 a haircut, lunch & then went & picked out his Halloween costume.

Now I'm back 2 making more cards. Trying 2 keep the momentum going as long as I'm inspired to make them.

Good morning ladies! Happy Sunday!

Thought I'd share a LO I made a couple years back shortly after the Lord saved me. It goes along w/the scripture posting 4 the day.

Ok, so today at church, our pastor was totally speaking to me. I mean directly speaking to me, personally, w/the message he shared w/us. Anyone else here ever have that experience before?

It was like Jesus was talking to me through my pastor's message. I don't think I've ever quite had that experience before. I mean, I've been to services where I know the Lord revealed something new to me, and I've been to services where He even gave me a revelation about a particular scripture...but today it was like He was speaking to me, right to my heart & what He spoke to me was an actual answer to prayer!

It took me by surprise you know, that He would choose to communicate w/me in that way. Not that I didn't think He could--I truly believe our God can do anything, but the fact that He WOULD choose to speak to me in this particular way just reminded me that even though our God is a very BIG God, he doesn't forget the pleas of His children & He knows exactly what we need. He knows just how to comfort us, help us & teach us. He doesn't just leave us on our own to figure things out by ourselves & He doesn't just leave it up to our church leaders either. He takes an ACTIVE role in our lives to help us grow spiritually!

That fact alone just overwhelmed my heart today...just one more example of His truly AMAZING love for us who are His in Christ. We are soooooo BLESSED!!!!

Jami, you literally just made me teary-eyed. I have had that experience and it is amazing. I am teaching the adult SS class and our lessons this quarter are all about holiness. God has revealed so much to me through teaching. Thank you for being so open and vulnerable in sharing. You are a blessing.

Looved you layout Jami.

The colors, the Scripture & the technique that you used!

And the story behind it, of course!

Jami, you literally just made me teary-eyed. I have had that experience and it is amazing. I am teaching the adult SS class and our lessons this quarter are all about holiness. God has revealed so much to me through teaching. Thank you for being so open and vulnerable in sharing. You are a blessing.


AMEN!!

Good morning my sisters!

Kelly I love how many projects you've been creating! So happy to see you so inspired! : ) I have to admit I'm a little jealous, lol. I don't know what it is, but I feel somewhat intimidated every time I try to come up w/an idea to scrap 4 this challenge. Which also feels kinda strange to me. Maybe I'm just thinking too hard about it.

aNyHoW...

Just posted today's scripture. It's a little longer than I wanted to post, but I just felt like I couldn't leave any of it out to make the post shorter, you know. Can you tell I've been spending time in the book of John lately? lol
John is my FAV of the 4 gospels. What are some of ya'lls FAV books of the bible?

Thanks Jami. I'm not sure how long the momentum will last, but I'm trying my best to work on at least 2 layouts each day, if possible.

Once the kids come home, I usually have to stop, so they've been keeping me to the clock.

I should also add & share, that this is my 3rd or 4th attempt to complete a series of faithbooking layouts (3 yrs in the works!)...So, you might say, I've had more than enough time to try and get the hang of it!

(Most of my pages or at least the papers & embellishments are organized in a 12x12 album...So, when I identify with a Scripture, I pray it over, look it up in my Bible & then go right into action-mode!)

Hope That Helps!



[*Jami read here!*]...This is me encouraging you!

You can do it & we can't wait to see!

Just had a major DUH! moment...why haven't I ever thought about praying over my lo's? Thank you for mentioning that. I shouldn't even be creating unless I include the Lord. Thank you for the revelation.

Hahah, you are so sweet Kelly! Thanks 4 the bit of encouragement and for sharing how you've had success scrapping the scriptures. I will DEF try incorporating more prayer/meditation over the verses I feel drawn to scrap and I'm sure w/our heavenly Father's help the inspiration will come to be able to bring the scriptures to life in my own artistic way.

Now to find our passage for today...maybe something from the OT for Melody.

p.s. I found & purchased those cross bookmarks at the Family Christian Bookstore. It was about 3 yrs ago, right before we moved. We just moved back from the island of Guam this summer in June.

Morning all.

Finished 2 more layouts, but I need to stop & clean. My house needs a good dusting, there are scrapbook supplies spread out all over the diningroom table & oh I'm sure there's lots of laundry just waiting for me, as I just keep on walking by it & have even closed the door.

Same here girl, tomorrow is going to be my 'catch-up-on-house-chores ' day. My laundry is almost overflowing my closet & the carpet needs a good vaccuuming too. Hoping to have the energy to get most of it started after work 2night so I can scrap 2morrow night! : )

Guess what ladies...? I had an idea 4 a page today!! Only by the time I had the idea I'd missed the opportunity to get a pic so will have to get one the next time I visit with my SIL's grandma. Here's the scripture that inspired my idea...

James 1:27

Today's New International Version (TNIV)

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

Good afternoon my beautiful sisters in Christ!

I'm getting a late start today. Hubby had to see a dentist about a tooth this morning that had him in excruciating pain so I didn't get to bed as early as I would have liked, but he's feeling much better w/o the horrible tooth pain.

Just updated the 1st page w/our verse for today. Hope you are all having a lovely weekend!

I'm adding to my favorites, and I'm HOPING that it's going to be a regular feature!

Thanks for the inspiration and uplift. :-)

Hey Pat, you must be back from vacation, how was it?!?!?

For the record, I do plan to keep this challenge going on a monthly basis as long as I'm able to & if I'm ever not able to I will surely let the group know in case anyone would like to host in my absence. I've been feeling led to scrap what is most important to me lately and as my relationship w/the Lord is becoming more & more the major focus that He has always intended it to be, I thought, why can't I scrap about that? I mean, I wouldn't want my future great-grandchildren to not know that about me. I want future generations to know about my faith even more than I'd want them to know about all the vacations I ever went on...you know?

Anyhow, that's what stirred me to open this challenge & I'm sure I speak for all the others when I say we're glad to have you join us sis!!

BTW, today's verse is up!

Wishing you all a blessed day & praying that wherever you are this morning, you're able to fully embrace the rest we have been given in our Lord Jesus and recharge as we draw close to Him and are reminded of the good news of the gospel.

Happy Sunday!

It's been rainy here in Southern California for the last 3 days.

Fine with me, because not only can we always use the rain when we can get it, but rain has a way of keeping me indoors & wanting to just cuddle up & cozy down.

Problem is, it's gonna take me awhile to get going. I think I need to eat breakfast to hopefully find my morning energy.
