Project FAITH-BOOK CHALLENGE #1

Welcome Fellow Project Faith-Book Friends!!!

I am SO excited to introduce this area of Scrap Booking to you, and I pray that it is enlightening and encouraging to all of you!  

I have had many of you ask me “What is Project Faith-Book”? And after much prayer and thought this is what I have put together.

Faith booking is an important part of scrap booking our heritage!   Even if you are new to scrap booking you will agree it is the best way to preserve memories of vacations, birthdays, new additions to the family, and other special events in our lives. Just ask anyone who scrap-books. You will find that activities and special times with family and friends are the biggest reason for scrap-booking.  With Project Faith-Book the focus is on our spiritual journey and the Faith heritage. Which we want for those who are here now and those who come behind us to remember!  Project Faith-Book is putting the face of God on our scrapbook pages. As believers, we, like Jacob, see the face of God in our everyday lives during our everyday activities (Genesis 32:30.)

Project Faith-Book is basically combining our beliefs and experiences with God and the memories we leave for our children, grandchildren, and so on, (you get the picture right?)  using scrap booking. What greater legacy could we leave?

We will be creating an actual Faith-Book aka scrap-book. That is the reason I mentioned your choice of Albums.  We will be doing different projects each challenge to build on our Faith and to scrap our memories. There will be discussions and comments on the Face Book page to encourage, motivate, and help each other along the way. Keep in mind this is a Christian project and should be treated as such. We as Daughters of the King of Kings are above what is improper and displeasing to Jesus. We are Children of a Great God and should present ourselves in that manner.

Regardless of your scrapbook style, if faith is an important part of your life then you will want to 
preserve this for future generations. Let’s begin today to capture those moments when we feel God’s presence in our lives and around us in every day beauty and awe.
