Write Them on Your Doorposts :: A Giveaway

Special thanks to DaySpring for sponsoring this giveaway and feathering our nest with these charming book crops.

Did you notice this sign on my mantel the other day?  My boys did.  I saw one of them mouthing the words as he read it to himself.

There’s one here too.

And here.

And here.

Over here.

Yonder right there.

Wait, I’m confused…wasn’t there a different one on the mantel 6 pictures ago?

These beautiful simple truths are now randomly placed all over our home. I know that after being surrounded by these verses, hymn phrases, and words of encouragement for the next 5-9 years, my boys will have a hard time getting them out of their heads.  There’s something about seeing words and images in the home you grow up in that just stay with you.

Growing up, I don’t think we had any words on our walls but, we had a front door made out of some weird kind of wood that made it look like there were dozens of scary monkey faces staring at you.  I’ll never forget that door.  Or those faces.  So I figure, why not be intentional about what our boys see.  I mean, we talk about the Bible and believe it, it just seems natural to have something more than a paper note card with a verse written on it taped to a bathroom mirror.

That’s why I love these Book Crops.  I forgot to ask what a book crop actually is but, for me, they are unobtrusive wooden signs. But they are more, these are understated, timeless wooden signs with real meaning that can stand on their own or hang on a wall.  Wooden signs that would make a great gift or complete any door hung on the wall. Wooden signs that I can sneak in just about every room of our house.  Kind of like those moms who sneak zucchini into cupcakes.  DaySpring has at least 15 different choices and, if you don’t find that perfect verse, phrase or quote, you can even make your own custom book crop.

DaySpring is very generous and is giving away some of these signs for you too.

  1. I LOVE these! I’m going to have to get some…..if I don’t win!

  2. I can’t even sing “Great is thy faithfulness” without crying because it reminds me of standing next to my Dad in church when I was little. I can still here him singing it. (that sounds like he died, he didn’t, I just don’t get to go to church with him but about once a year now!)

  3. Hi – gotta say, I love your blog! Thanks for the time you put into it. Also I love the dayspring items – so lovely! Would love to win!!!

    Deut. 6 is one of my favorite chapters in the books of law in the Old Testament. I believe it is so true to have these truths visual to your children in your home. “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” Prov. 4:23.
    Great way to display this encouragement!

  7. Just last week I took three different colors of sticky notes and plastered our walls with Scripture. These would be so much more attractive! Love them!

  8. I would love to have my boy’s life verses! Thank you!

  9. I love wall decals made of words and now I love these too!
