Scripture Decor for your home

It started simply enough. As parents of two children with autism, we have relied heavily on several scripture passages to see us through the rough patches. Jeremiah 29:11 is my favorite, "For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." I wanted to display that scripture in my home so that it would be a daily reminder of God's divine plan for our lives. I found a website that sold the vinyl letters that you apply to your walls. I loved the look so much that I ordered a second set to go above our front door. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me". Phil 4:13

We get lots of comments from people who visit our home. Everyone from friends, pizza delivery folks, home repair people to the occasional Jehovah's Witness visitor knows we are Christ Followers as soon as they enter our home. It has been a great conversation starter with total strangers. Along the way we have broadened our scripture decor, as I call it to include ceilings and furniture. Brooks now hand letters all of his work and each scripture is carefully selected to remind us to keep the faith.
People are always asking us if they can bring their wife, husband, brother, sister, friend, etc... to see our house. We have gotten such positive reactions from everyone that we would like to open our doors and invite people to come in to be inspired. We are hosting an open house on April 25th & 26th from 3p-7p. We are only 2 miles from downtown Franklin, so if you are planning on going to the Main Street Festival, stop by on your way home. Send us an e-mail to and we will send you directions.
