Pick Me Up

We all have our days. We all have our moments. When things are just dragging us down and nothing goes our way. In these times, I turn to God. I turn to him in my time of doubt, time of sadness, or time of distress. The first thing I start with is prayer. I pray all the time and it is something that gives me inner peace after doing so. The second thing is scripture. There is something about opening up God’s word and reading reassuring scripture.

So after “Pinteresting” one day I came across this pin…

I loved the whole idea of this and wanted to make a craft for my sister out of it!

So I thought about making her a contact book. For when she needs some advice or comforting words of scripture, the little book would be her go-to bible verse book.

Here is what I used:
-pencil
-gold sharpie
-colored card stock paper
-string
-hole punch

How I made it:
It’s pretty self-explanatory by looking at the pictures…but I basically took a piece of paper, wrote on the verse that I wanted and then put a heart in two corners. I did this for about 20 or more verses from the list above.

I hope that you are able to make this sometime…even if it is for yourself.
