Show Love with Scripture

Posted by Etch Life on

For about the past year, while browsing our shop, many of you have asked if we do custom orders.  You mentioned you were looking for something with a favorite verse for yourself, or for the perfect verse to give to a friend or loved one that they might hold dear.

After listening to your requests for a personal gift for that special person in your life, or for the perfect reminder of truth for yourself, we vowed to make it a priority.  We listened as you shared how your mom would love a certain verse to hang in her home and how you would love to put your life verse on an art print.  We saw you eyes light up at the thought of having an item that was lettered with that word that God keeps speaking over and over to your heart.

Some of you are thrilled at this idea of custom anything while some of you might not be so sure about this.  The thought of being able to choose any verse or word and have it lettered on something just seems so daunting and overwhelming.  Maybe you have ideas but it's a "know it when you see it" kinda thing.  We totally get that and still want to help you get it just right.

With Valentine's Day coming up, we wanted to share a list of verses that we think would be so meaningful to share with the loves of our life this year.  To not only show them our love, but also the love of our Heavenly Father–to encourage someone in his or her relationship with Him. 

These are our faves.  Some simple, some with deeper meaning and further context, but either way, we think these would all make a special gift when hand-lettered on an art print to give as a Valentine...
