Ever since I was a little girl, building a home was always a dream of mine, but it never seemed like it could be a reality. I always loved watching home makeover shows, This Old House with my Dad, and of course, my beloved Fixer Upper. I love, love seeing a home come to life, and sometimes I wonder if I should have been an interior designer and architect, because I love to be creative, but math is also my favorite subject.

When building a home actually became a reality for us this year, I knew we had to make the building process special. Have you ever seen people writing their names or writing a quote in their walls during a renovation?! I wanted to take that a few steps further and write scriptures on our framing. This was something that was very meaningful to me, and it's kinda cool to think that there are scriptures within our walls blessing our home, our marriage, our future children, and anyone who walks through our doors.

Today, I'll be sharing those thirty scriptures that we wrote throughout our home and the perfect place to write those scriptures, too!

It will be a silent reminder that God is always with you, He loves you, and He is forever blessing your home, your life, your family, and all of the amazing people who will come through your doors.
