NEW DESIGN: Spirit Lead Me {Take 40% off now}

I'm kind of in love.

I just finished up this custom design for my sister-in-law. Her new house is going to be ready next month and she requested the lyrics to one of her favorite worship songs Hillsong UNITED Oceans (Where My Feet May Fail) to be the centerpiece of the main part of her new home.

Here's what it could look like framed.

I totally dig anything in gray tones I think it would be lovely in a rustic frame. I'm definitely ordering one for myself.

Here's how the design process worked:
  1. She found an idea she loved with these lyrics and sent me the photo.
  2. I mocked it up trying out some different color combinations. I even went a got an engineer print made so she could see it in a frame above my mantel.
  3. She sent me links to the paint colors in her kitchen and family room and I matched those as best as I could on screen.
  4. We adjusted spacing/colors and I sent a final proof as well as discussing where I thought she could find a great looking frame. It all took about 3 days total. 
Because I love it so much and think these words are amazing, I just made this design available in my shop both as a physical print shipped to your front door and also a PDF instant download.  

Maybe I'm loving these particular lyrics because I just started Beth Moore's study "Breath," and it's all about the Holy Spirit. The study has just begun, so I'll have to let you know more about what I learn, but I have a feeling it's going to be a good one and I'm excited to see how the Spirit leads and speaks through this study.

Now here's the good stuff....

Summer Freebie! {We Have This Hope} Printable + Wallpaper Graphic

Hello there and happy summer! I'm been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to share some really fun summer-themed and hope-filled freebies with you!

I have a pretty amazing job as the graphic designer at my church. Last week it was even more amazing, because I got to spend my time creating a set of printables and wallpaper graphics to go along with the theme of our summer message series at Valley Community called "We Have This Hope."

During our planning sessions for this series, we kept coming back to the reality that people want something to place their hope in. They are searching for it all over the place. A quick image search on the internet is packed full of pretty anchor designs about "hope" that "anchors the soul." It's. popular.

For us, the question kept coming back to ... Yeah, but HOPE IN WHAT?? We read Hebrews 6:19 again ... "We have THIS HOPE..." Not just any hope. Not hope for the sake of having hope. Not just a fierce hope that it will all work out in the end. THIS HOPE.

THIS HOPE = HOPE IN JESUS CHRIST and His sacrificial, never-ending LOVE FOR US. Period.

He is the only hope worth anchoring our soul to.

HOPE IN JESUS desperately needs to be shared. He is the hope that cannot be shaken in a world that is ever-changing.

So that's why we are so excited about these printables and wallpaper graphics! They are available as both 5x7 & 8x10 printables, as well as a notecard. The graphics are for a range of desktop resolutions, Kindle, iPad, iPhone and Android. 

Go make this design the wallpaper on your devices this summer and download the printable as your reminder that hope is found in Christ alone.

 Isn't it so pretty and perfect for summer?

>>I challenge you to take it a step further and  think of someone to share this with. We've made it so easy to share THIS HOPE! Take the note card template we've created for you and send a note to someone who needs a little encouragement and needs to know how much Jesus loves them.

But wait, before you write this off because it's not your color scheme or get panic attacks thinking about using up all of your ink on your home printer {Not likely, but worth it if you do!} on one pretty printable, never fear, we've also created versions that are black & white or blue on white backgrounds. 

It's also super easy to upload a PDF to your nearest office supply location to have a beautiful print made just for you. Be sure to ask for 100# cardstock and matte finish and you'll love it!

We have this hope as an anchor to the soul, firm and secure. Hebrews 6:19

May THIS HOPE anchor your soul this summer,
