some of our gals & the words that encourage them

Since we really dig biblical encouragement over here, we figured we'd introduce you to some of our precious sponsors by letting their favorite verses speak for them. Today, we hope you can look over their sweet pictures and then read these verses, one by one, letting them encourage and strengthen your day. 

1) Faith from Ordinary Mommy is encouraged by this: 
It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. Lamentations 3:22-24

2) Marie from Found by Marie loves this passage: 
Ephesians 4:32  "Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

3) Annie  from Blue Leaf Boutique picked this verse to share:
Make it your ambition and definately endevor to live quietly and peacefully, to mind your own affairs and to work with your hands. 1 Thessalonians 4:11

4) Becca from Hugs & Kisses Design shared this verse with us: 
Jeremiah 29:11: For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

5) Casey from The Wiegands offered this precious promise: 
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. Revelation 21:4

6) Jessica from JessicaNDesign listed this as one of her faves when she was battling cancer. Um, yes. I'd say that's worth being on our list twice! 
Jeremiah 29:11: For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

7) I love this one that Melissa from Tukula offered up: 
Psalm 34: 17-18 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. 

8) love, love, love this one that Ashley from the Vanilla Tulip gave us: 
Deuteronomy 7:9, Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; He is the faithful God, keeping His covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love Him and keep His commandments. 

9) and lastly, Jackie from Willow of Wonder provided us with this one: 
 Zephaniah 3:17 - The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

We pray that not only will the shops & blogs of these women be an encouragement to you, but the steadfast love that they have for Jesus will strengthen your spirit today. 
And is there any other better way to get to know someone besides their favorite verse?
What's yours?!


  1. Wow! I know I was encouraged reading all of these verses.

  2. love all these verses that the ladies shared!

  3. Romans 8:38 - For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
