Proverbs 24:3-6

This is something that I wanted to be sure and record because I want our kids to be able to go back and see these pictures in the blog book that I print for many years to come!

Proverbs 24:3-6
"By wisdom a house is built and through understanding it's walls are established.  Through knowledge it's rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures."
From the day we bought our lot of land to build our future house on, through all of the planning stages and design, and now during the actual framing of the structure, we have put our trust in the Lord and His perfect will and plan.  He has opened doors and continues to guide us through this process.
As the bones of our house are formed, we give Him the glory and want the very foundation of this house to reflect Him.
On Saturday morning, James and I went over to our house armed with verses from the Bible that we thoughtfully claimed for each room and wrote them on the beams.  Long after they are covered with more wood, sheetrock, etc…we will know and remember the truths we claimed for that room.  My prayer is that the workers who show up Monday morning will read these verses and be forever changed!

I will post more as the second story comes into fruition.
We are waiting on a main bean to go up with the family room…Deuteronomy 6:5-8 will be written there, love this verse...

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts.  Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.


  1. What a wonderful idea, Lauren! Love how each verse reflects you and James.

  2. I love this! We placed a Bible under the foundation of our front porch and watched the workers pour cement over it. We wanted it to be at the threshold of our house. I can't wait to read your story!

  3. I love this idea!! What a beautiful way to bless your home.
