Carpenter Family Faith Book

       A few days ago I received this email from my husband. I wanted to post this on my blog just in case any of you who read this blog would like to do this for your own family. What a great idea. I can't wait to get started on it (with Michelle's help, of course, since I am not the least bit creative)
Joshua 4:
20 And Joshua set up at Gilgal the twelve stones they had taken out of the Jordan. 21 He said to the Israelites, “In the future when your descendants ask their parents, ‘What do these stones mean?’ 22 tell them, ‘Israel crossed the Jordan on dry ground.’ 23 For the Lord your God dried up the Jordan before you until you had crossed over. The Lord your God did to the Jordan what he had done to the Red Sea[b] when he dried it up before us until we had crossed over. 24 He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that the hand of the Lord is powerful and so that you might always fear the Lord your God. ”

Deut. 6:
4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.[a] 5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 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. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.

      I have a project for you:  I want a Family Faith Book to keep on our coffee table and to remind our kids daily of God's great kindness and faithfulness to us and our constant reliance on Him.  I would like you to create us a beautiful (BIG) book that will become a family heirloom.  You can search online and use scrap booking tools, etc. and we can put a little bit of money into making it worthy of the importance of what it is.  Check out my Workflowy for a start to the faith entries and I want these (and perhaps others) verses above featured prominently on it, maybe on the cover.  I'll leave the rest of it up to you!
Thanks Babe!
