Are you a parent, pastor, sponsor, youth group leader, family member, or friend of a young person being raised in the Christian faith? This personalized Believers Box would make the perfect gift to commemorate any milestone in the Christian tradition. The beaded cross colors, background colors, accent mattes, fonts, arrangements, wording, and Bible verses are all customizable. I can use any of the papers shown in the photos, or any other color you request.
The box is filled with some of the most important symbols of the Christian faith: a handmade, beaded cross, passages from the Bible, a miniature Bible, a peace dove, a word charm, the Christian fish, and a stone to represent the tomb of Jesus. The paper is acid-free and archival quality, to last a lifetime.
Mark such occasions as baptisms, confirmations, catechisms, first communions, etc.
The dimensions of the box are 8 x 6 x 1 3/4, with a viewing area of 4 1/2 x 6 1/2.
***Note: This shadow box does not have a stand, so it may only be hung on a wall or left free-standing (see photo).
Suggested verses for confirmation, baptism, christening, or first communion: (If you would like a different verse, please provide the EXACT WORDING you prefer, as well as the verse number).
#1 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Jeremiah 1:5
#2 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him. Luke 2:40
#3 Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you. Matthew 6:44
#4 And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. Philippians 1:9-11
#5 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. John 15:16
#6 Don't let anyone look down on your or despise you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in fath and in purity. I Timothy 4:12
#7 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
#8 You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16
#9 There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Ephesians 4:4-6
#10 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
