Inspiring Mirror

This scripture mirror adorns a wall in my daughter's bedroom:
It's something I designed before I had children, but had the younger generations of girls in mind when I did. I hoped that if girls see how God values them, they would struggle less with peer pressure, low self-esteem, etc. It reads "I am fearfully and wonderfully made – Psalm 139:14." It was a product I carried in my [old] online store. I saved one for my daughter when she came along ... she's not yet 4, but I hope in the future it will be a positive reminder to her of her heavenly worth! :-) I had a stencil custom made for manufacturing these, but it's easily something you could replicate with alphabet stencils or even freehand. Try a rectangular mirror for an easier go at it! Also, I sold these in several color options and not just for girl bedrooms, either. In fact, I think the powder room was a popular destination! Don't we all need to be reminded of this verse?

PS: My "Blogiversary" [oh - you are all so clever! thanks for the tip on the cool lingo!] Super Duper Giveaway is still going on. See my previous post to enter. MANY thanks for everyone's incredibly kind words!! I know, I know, you're just trying to win, but I'll take it! :-)

What a wonderful scripture to imprint on your daughter's mind every day. It is so important for all kids, but I think especially girls, to realize that this scripture is true and meant for them!

What an awesome idea! You know, since visiting your site I am constantly trying to incorporate scripture all over our house! I'll show you all your inspiration once I complete the projects that are dangling in my mind!

Hi, I had to buy your book. It just came today. It's wonderful. Congrats!! If I don't win a book, I may purchase one for my mom for Mother's day. It's just beautiful. I plan to decorate with the book also.

Love the mirror. You never cease to amaze me with your talent. Psalms is such a good book of the Bible.

hi, i just stopped by and loved this idea, but if you use your own stencils, what would you use to write it on the frame? special kind of craft ink, paint? enlighten me!

Thanks for the question!
If you are using alphabet stencils, then use stencil paint and brush. They are designed to not "bleed" paint under the stencil. You kind of tap, tap with the loaded brush as opposed to normal paint strokes.

This post inspired me to put this verse in my daughter's bathroom. Now she will be able to read this verse everday. (One day, she is only 4 now.)

Hi, I was surfing the web and came across your inspirational mirror. This is gorgeous. I know this was years ago. Is there any way I can buy one still? I have the other ones already that are being sold through dayspring. Are there any more that you are making I have an idea for my new house and your work is amazing I would love to buy as many as I can get my hands one that are uniquely made like this.
