1st Scripture Swap // Happy New Year

Happy New Year, friends!!!! I hope this coming year is filled with God's goodness and amazing love. Did any of you stay up till 2016?! Do you have any New Year's resolutions?
Now, I have a little surprise to announce..........
I'm having a Scripture Swap and am so thrilled about it!!! 
Please read the entire post for details.
 
In September I participated in Stephanie's tea cup and mug exchange, and after that, I really wanted to host an exchange on my blog. I thought and prayed about what kind of swap I could host that isn't very common in the blogging community. Then a Scripture swap came to my mind. I LOVE things that have Bible verses on them and I know other people do as well.


*****
 I would absolutely L.O.V.E. it if you participated in this exchange.  All you have to do is buy or make something that is related to Scripture, or has a Scripture verse(s) on it. Here are some examples: Bible, journal, bag, note cards, mug, candle, stickers, stationary, drawing, towel, tea, devotional book, apron, key chain, etc...Be creative!!!!


***** 
It would be just lovely if you could add at least one other gift and a letter, (because who doesn't like getting an extra little surprise; you may add as many as you'd like) but it isn't necessary. If you're wondering, the extra gift does not have to have a Bible verse on it, but it would be nice if you could include something that is Scripture related.

Here's how it works. You send a Scripture parcel to one lady, and receive one from a different lady. You'll be blessed with two new friends in the end!  :) You do not have to have a blog to participate.

*****
This exchange is open to all U.S. residents. If you are from a different country and would like to participate, feel free to sign up and I'll see if there is anyone that could exchange with you.  :) 

*****

I will email each of you on Tuesday, the 12th, with the information you need to send your someone special their Scripture package.  We have until January 20th  to get our packages together and shipped out. Please don't send your package any later then Jan. 20th.

  2. Okay, I know this is going to sound really silly, but what is url?
    I was signing up and didn't want to say I didn't have a blog.
    You can tell that I barley know much yet!

    1. Hi Paige! I'm happy to help. A URL is the web address of your blog. For example, my URL is creatingpreciousmoments.blogspot.com
      It is the address people type in to go to your blog. Does that make sense? Hope it helps. :)
      Love in Christ,
      Ashley

Thank you for planning this scripture Swap. I always love all your posts.
