GUEST POST: Writing Scripture and Truth in Your Home with Kyla Mary

Hi y'all! It has been a delight to follow along with Victoria's adventures as a reader for the past couple of years. I am so grateful for the opportunity to share something dear to my heart with you today!

To introduce myself a bit further, I blog at Kyla Mary. My husband, Dillon, and I just got married on June 10th - YAY! I've been enjoying sharing a glimpse into our daily life as we establish our life together over on my blog, which has been a sweet adventure. 

Our faith is central to who we are as a family. The love we have for God is immediately followed our heart for loving others well - including each other! I believe this value starts at home by loving our families. Whether it be speaking scripture over yourself, praying strength over your husband, or encouraging your roommate with sweet words, we have a beautiful opportunity to fill our homes with truth. A beautiful way to do this is to write scripture and truth in your home, putting it somewhere you will see each and everyday.

Proverbs 16:24 says, "Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones." Writing scripture and truth in your home puts what matters most right in your line of vision. Scripture and truth sometimes get lost in the commotion of our days, so this serves as a way to remind us of words we often need to hear most. This principle not only serves those who live within the walls of your home, but also the sweet guests you welcome into it. 

Writing scripture and truth in your home can take many different forms. One of the most popular, beautiful ways to accomplish this is through large-scale wall pieces.

If you prefer the option to frequently swap out the scripture, a chalkboard wall can be a sweet way to write scripture in truth in your home with variety. This is a great option to encourage scripture memorization in your home, too. I found an apartment-friendly way to do this in our apartment and will be sharing more on that this summer - so stay tuned!

This concept isn't limited to walls, friends. If you are in a rented space without the option to add to your walls, there are so many cute prints that can be framed throughout your home!





Be encouraged, friends! There are so many ways to bring scripture and truth into your home. If you do this already, please share your favorite ideas below so we can spur each other on in making this happen!
