When I was in college I did a bible study called Breaking Free by Beth Moore. It was life changing and I recall the verses I memorized during that study more than any, likely due to the fact that it included a page of bible verses on little cards to cut out and place in spots I frequented often for encouragement during my day.
And sure, that meant there were bible verses on my toothbrush (good oral health is important), all of my mirrors (I blame the vanity on my teenage girl status), on my freezer (teenage girls going through heartbreak need ice cream) and car dashboard (not my brightest idea, keep your eyes on the road y’all.) But the sentiment behind it stuck with me.
Now in my thirties I still find myself jotting down verses that touch my heart and sticking them up around the house. And then my husband goes to brush his teeth in the morning and is all “Why is there a post-it note with Psalms written on it stuck to the tube of toothpaste?” Obviously some habits die hard, y’all.
So I made up a fancy little sheet of my favorite encourage quotes and scripture verses that relate to motherhood and turned them into a free printable to share (the download link is at the bottom of this page.)
I printed off two sets, one to laminate and keep in my purse so that I could pass the love along to friends or random strangers in the grocery store. Yes, I am THAT girl. Get behind me in the checkout line and next thing you know I’m showing you pictures of my baby and giving you laminated scripture cards. This is my spiritual gift. I mean, I took a spiritual gift test once and “showing random strangers pictures of your baby and then giving them laminated scripture cards” was not an option or anything but if it HAD been then I’m sure that it would be mine.
But seriously, print, laminate and cut. That’s literally all you do! I use this swingline laminator and these pouches and I do not regret that purchase for one single second. I am laminating everything up in here. My husband is like “Um, this is nice and all but do you think it was really necessary to laminate this grocery list that I scribbled on the back of an old napkin?”
The other set I made into magnets, because who doesn’t love magnets? Plus, magnets are really useful. I know this because my three year old makes a LOT of art and I am always thinking to myself “Self, why don’t we own more magnets? I could really use a magnet right now. Also a nap. And a bar of chocolate.”
So when I learned about this thing called PRINTABLE MAGNET PAPER I was all about it. Seriously, you just buy the printable magnet paper, print on it, and cut out the magnets. They look even cuter if you round the corners. And if you are wondering why I am telling you that and yet did not round the corners on my own magnets, that would be because my three year old absconded with my corner rounder. But here is what they look like on my fridge:
Also? These make a super easy gift idea. Especially if you need a belated Mother’s Day gift
The printable cards are free for subscribers of the Mothers Of Daughters newsletter, which you can sign up for here! When you subscribe, you will get an email with a link to download these Scripture cards and you can print, laminate, magnetize and hand out to random strangers at your heart’s content. Or to your loved ones, if you know, that’s more your thing.
But seriously, it is my hope that seeing these little reminders will bring you peace and joy and encouragement as you navigate the waters of motherhood and need to remember that your Anchor holds within the veil.
