“Write Them on the Doorposts” Giveaway and Contest

“You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” Deuteronomy 6:9

Stenciling Scripture on the wallThis month, Katelyn and I are finally accomplishing a goal that’s been on our to-do list since moving into our house two years ago. We’re stenciling Scripture on our walls!

I’ve been thinking about various decorative and creative ways of placing Scripture in our home. Since this activity ties right in with Doorposts’ mission, we’ve decided to host a contest so we can all share ideas and inspire each other (more details later in this post)!

Why should we write God’s Word in our homes?

The Ten Commandments

In Deuteronomy 6:4-9, God commands Israel to write His words on the doorposts of their homes, but the real point of these verses is that we should write God’s Word on our hearts. God wants us to love Him with all our heart, soul, and strength.

Writing Scripture on our doorposts is not the end goal, but it is one of the means God prescribes that will help us love Him and obey His Word more faithfully. Here are a few reasons for making Scripture prominent in our homes:

  • Because we will see it often.
  • Because it helps us memorize and remember God’s Word.
  • Because it will give us more opportunities to meditate on and talk about Scripture with our spouse and children in the context of daily life.
  • Writing God’s Word in our home is a witness to visitors. It’s an opportunity for outsiders to read God’s Word, and to see that it’s important to us.

Announcing the “Write them on the Doorposts” Contest!

Starting today, Doorposts is hosting a contest! We want to share ideas and encourage more families to make Scripture prominent in their homes. We hope you’ll join us by submitting one or more photos showing how you’ve decorated with Scripture. (Read the contest details here!).

Behold, children are a heritage of the Lord and the fruit of the womb is a reward

  1. Shared on facebook – LOVE this idea!

  2. We shared this with all our facebook friends and forward your posts to friends, too. Many receive your blog updates now. Thank you for your ministry. We are bringing up four sons and the challenges never end. Your blog encourages me to do my very best in training the hearts of our children and my own heart, too, to please God.
    I would love to hear something helpful on helping our older children choose music and entertainment wisely. We are very selective about television programming but the internet and library have brought the world to our sons’ laps (or more specifically, lap-TOPs…and earBUDs, etc.) It’s difficult to even know what they are exposing themselves to when your sons are so good with technology that there’s no longer any point to “parental controls”. Two sons are interested in forensics and FBI work! We talk a lot and they are very open about what they’re listening to, watching, etc. I would like some simple questions or guidelines to teach them to evaluate entertainment themselves.

  3. I shared on Facebook. I would love to win this contest because we have been looking for another scripture for our walls! If I don’t win, I can always check out wise decor :) My husband and I lead a group of parents who are desiring to live out Deuteronomy 6 in their parenting and we have shared your products and blogs with these precious families – thank you for your commitment to the Lord and the generations to come!

  4. Oh how I love the way you are stenciling scripture on your walls. Such a beautiful idea. My husband and I don’t currently own the home we are living in, so I don’t have that option but plan to keep it in mind for the future home we are hoping to buy. Thanks for sharing this! :)

    Blessings,
    Rosann

  5. So excited about this contest! This will get me motivated to get all the ideas in my head onto my walls! Thank you! Told several friends.

  6. Also shared on Facebook. Thanks!

  7. Shared on facebook and my email newsletter. I love and use doorposts, you guys are a blessing in our lives!

  8. We have always had Scriptures on index cards all over the house, tucked into kitchen cabinet door moldings, bathroom mirror frames, and window casings, along with selected verses framed. Having Scriptures always before us allowed for memorization while washing dishes, folding laundry, and walking by the way, for even the youngest reader. Thank you for introducing Wise Decor! I forwarded your email to my family :-D, and am now searching for empty wall space. Hahaha :-)

  9. I have told other family members. My family prints off whatever scripture we are learning about and tapes it to the walls and doors. Having scripture hung up in the house is a great reminder of God’s word. Especially when you are struggling with a particular sin.

  10. Thank you for this opportunity – this is a fabulous idea!

  11. Shared on facebook :)

  27. I, too, have been moved to have more scripture around our house not only for our own family to just be surrounded by His word, but also for those that enter our home to be blessed and washed with His word. I have used the vinyl lettering before and really like the look of it and the ease of application. Over our dinner table reads Bless All Who Gather Here. We also have a variety of framed prints and such one of my favorites is one my husband got for me for my birthday which reads Faith~Hope~Love…But the Greatest of These is Love…

  64. This is great! I’ve been looking for ways to post more scripture on our walls. We play scripture all day in our kitchen on cd.

  80. A friend made me a pic of beautiful clouds and 1 Thess 4:16-17. She framed it and gave it to me as a gift, I treasure it. We also go to Hobby Lobby when they have sales on wall decor and get tin signs with verses on them to hang around the house.

  124. We forwarded to my cousin and aunt! I am a special needs student who is part of Honor Society at my school. We are encouraged to both memorize scripture and enter contests, this was perfect!

  125. Great idea for a contest! My family’s photography website (http://VerticalFocusPhoto.com) has a very similar mission derived from this Deuteronomy 6 passage. We offer free downloads of original photographs with encouraging Bible verses that anyone can use to add Scripture to the walls of their home (or the wallpaper of their computer). This helps our family to maintain a vertical focus! Keep up the good work, Doorposts!

    Told my homeschool group

  130. Hi, this has inspired me to look at how I can be creative in placing scripture in my home. We are a Christian family, raising three boys (all busy, ages 14, 10, and 5). In raising boys, I have found scripture to be useful everyday. The boys respond differently if I have taken time for myself in scripture too. God is a wonder that I just do not understand. I am searching and reaching for understanding of God’s greatness. Enjoy your home scripture writing. It will bless you and all that read it. God bless you all.

  131. O shared on facebook.

  132. I shared on Facebook! I’ve been wanting verses all over my house since my first apartment! I still have not done it. I shall soon!!!

  133. I shared on facebook! Love this idea!

  174. Years ago I wrote scripture on index cards and put the cards on the backs if all the doors in our house-15 doors. 8 years later when we made a cross country move from Texas to south Dakota I left the cards behind for the family that was to rent our home. The scriptures in the bedrooms pertained to peaceful sleep, the scriptures on the pantry were about Gods daily bread. The scripture for the laundry room was about washing our sins as white ad snow. Our new house now has a scripture plaque in everyroom. I even wrote in permanent marker on the outside of the house by the front door.

  175. Emailed Bible study ladies/girlfriends!

  176. I shared the link on Facebook. Thank you for offering this contest and for the great products you have at Doorposts!

  177. I shared on Twitter!

  178. I e-mailed a friend!

  179. I “liked” you on Facebook ;-)

  180. Posted this on Facebook!

  181. Told my husband about this (since he is my best friend)…also told him we needed more scripture hung around our house. We have it in every room of our home but we are always looking for more ways to have it up there

  182. I shared this post with my home school group.

  183. I forwarded your email…God bless you all for reminding others to keep God’s Word at the forefront of the home! How transformed the world would be if everyone accepted this challenge. Thank you for your boldness and committment to our Lord! We appreciate your continued work to strengthen families.

  184. Emailed my sister-in-law about this

  185. Wrote about this on our blog

  186. Shared this with a friend that is decorating her new house!

  187. Shared on facebook. :)

  188. I have posted on facebook,
    Sent an email to my homeschool group….
    posted on my web site…..
    and twittered about it.

    next i will work on getting some more word of the Lord on more of our walls.

  189. Shared on facebook.

  190. I e-mailed it to a couple friends, I shared it on Facebook, I shared it with my homeschool group, and I told a friend about it on the phone! Thanks for all you do!

  191. I was in a leadership meeting of my church’s mom’s group tonight and I was very blessed by the host woman’s home. In every room of her home, the Word of the Lord appears in a variety of ways (like even the soap dispenser in the bathroom with Psalm 27:1 and her hand towels saying “Give Thanks”) and it was such a blessing. I remembered your article and told her how much her home ministered to me and the timing was so neat based on your article I read today. I emailed her this article to share!

  192. I shared about this awesome idea with a friend in person, also within my homeschooling group and forwarded the email from Doorposts about it. I’ve been thinking I want God’s Word on the walls of my home. This is such an encouragement! Thanks

  193. By beholding we become. Writing God’s Word in our homes will help us to behold the Truth more often and certainly opens the door to minister to others. The best deco for homes. I have forwarded your email to friends and home schooling groups. Hope many will be inspired.

  194. What a HUGE blessing this will be to someone. I forwarded this email as well as shared on FB.

  195. I immediately thought of a godly friend and so forwarded the email regarding the contest to her. I will also go share on my Facebook page. I am really looking foward to seeing entries/winners; I hope to see inspiring ideas (no pun intended). Thanks!

  196. Shared on FB.

  197. I have written a post of my blog and emailed friends about the contest. Great challenge!

  198. God is so amazing! Months ago I had bought a “paint pen”, desiring to write Scripture on our daughters’ room wall. Last night, as I was in bed, I thought about that paint pen and was thinking that we should incorporate it into art for the girls’ schooling. Then, this morning, I read about your contest and this will be such a motivation and inspiration for us to get it done! Thanks!

  199. I shared the information with my homeschool group and two other friends. It was exciting to receive this blog information since my daughter and I have been talking for a couple of months about putting scripture up in our home. We currently have only one scripture up.

  200. Hello, shared this contest with my family and friends. We are so excited to be a part of the contest as we just started making vinyl scripture that sticks on a wall, but can also come off if you need it to. We only have one scripture up on a wall right now so your contest has inspired my family to make some more. It is such a sweet and blessed feeling to walk into my house after a long day and see the beautiful scripture on my wall. Makes me glad to be home!!! Thanks again for the contest!!

  201. Forwarded this message to 13 of my friends…

    “Thought some of you girls might be interested in this or know of someone else that might. Our family has used Doorposts over the years and they have wonderful bible-based parenting and character training materials. This company is owned and operated by the Forster family. Many of the products offered were developed & used by the Forster’s themselves – so they are tried & true! They also have an awesome weekly blog that is very encouraging. I have really enjoyed staying connected to this company & family’s Godly example, at home & in the marketplace.”

  202. I shared on my facebook page. What a great idea to spread God’s work around. I’ve been wanting to stencil on my son’s walls for a long time. Now, I need to find the right verse! Thank you for the reminder!

  203. We were just talking this week about putting scriptures about the house, to help our children remember key verses. Thanks for the ideas!

  204. Pinned this on to Pinterest. Believe me this will spread quickly! How awesome!

  234. Shared with family that I knew would enjoy. I love this idea and have been thinking about doing this in 2 rooms for a long time (longer then 2 years!) so this contest might be the motivation I need to get it done! Like the Wise Decor link too.

  288. I love this idea, too. We have several Scripture verses around the house. I would like to share a photo on here. How do we do that?
    Pat for the Morris family.

  289. I just emailed this to a friend who has always wanted to add verse to their walls.

  290. I have forwarded this to Friends we just visited who have painted Verse on their walls of their home. I hope they can find a way to send you a photo of their beautiful writing on “their walls”.

  291. I have used stickers from The Dollar Tree many times for our walls. They often have scripture verse and complimentary stickers that you can use on the wall. We have used single verses in some places. We have used a Bible Thought, such as “With God all things are possible”. We have used the letters sheets to create our own verses “letter by letter” placing a pencil line with a level onto the wall ( very Lightly ), and they sticking the letters in order on the line. We have also intentionally put letters on “unevenly” to give a more whimsical look.

  292. One of my favorite Scripture wall, actually a whole room, was to use a small 6″ roller of one color of paint curving the roller to create a wave of a 6″ border around the room, just 1-2 feet below the ceiling. Then when dry, take a 4″ roller on the top of the 6″ border in the center. ONLY do about 3 feet at a time. BEFORE this drys ( it is a different color paint than the base paint from the 6″ band.). take your finger and “calligraphy” your verse, fingerpainting style, right on top of the paint, not worrying about if it goes slightly above or below the 4″ border, still wet. They progress along the room with your verse, keeping moving quickly, so the paint on top is removed as you finger write your verse, revealing the color of the 6″ border. Let all this dry. You can then add small highlights or accents as desired in a third color. We have quite a lot of comments about the Finger work that is cursive writing on our walls, and have this “guest” room to bless our visitors with the Word as they stay with us.

  293. Posted a couple of posts on Facebook about this contest.

  294. I added your button to our blog, although it is not yet public/published, I am happy to add your site to our recommended blogs.

  295. I am going to email this idea of adding a blog button to 3 of my daughters who are working on their blogs, hopefully soon to be published. We enjoy representing doorposts at conventions on occassions, and are pleased to recommened these to my daughters so they can promote by blog recommendation.

  296. Emails sent out!
