Christmas marked six years since I gifted the first sets of personalized Scripture cards. I can remember being excited to give my family and friends a set of cards that spoke God’s Word directly to them because while I love to encourage people, my words can fall short, but God’s Word will always deliver. Over the past six years, I’ve been blessed to hear the stories of those who have received a set of my personalized Scripture cards and of the impact the Word has had in their lives.
In this past year as Hide and Seek Scriptures grew, I continued to be blown away and humbled by the way God has used the cards to bring peace, hope, and joy into so many lives, both young and old alike.
~ A friend told me recently that she had purchased a set for her sister though she wasn’t sure if she would read them or not. In the last few months, her sister experienced the tragic loss of a miscarriage and shared with their mom that she had been reading the verse cards her sister had given her and how they had been helping her work through the loss.
~ Another friend experienced loss when a colleague unexpectantly took her own life. As my friend tried to grapple with the shock and loss, she reached out and ordered a couple of sets – one for home and one for work, knowing that reading the Word could help. As I checked back in with her she shared how the verses were helping. She also ended up buying more sets to give to others impacted by the loss, including a family member grieving the loss of their loved one.
