Grace's Scripture ABC's Book!

When Andrew was little I made him a Scripture ABC Book out of construction paper and put it in a three ring binder. He loved his little book and these were the first verses he memorized.
I recently ran across his old book and decided to make one for Grace. Only it's much prettier! Technology has improved!
For Grace's book I made a template so I can easily change backgrounds, foregrounds and font colors. And - instead of construction paper, I printed it on photo paper and had it bound at Staples. If you are a Staples Reward Card holder the binding is only $1.75.

Here is the front of Grace's Book!

I'm only including the first 9 pages, but you should get the idea!

Aa..... All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23

Bb..... Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved. Acts 16:31

Cc ...... Children obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Ephesians 6:1

Dd..... Depart from evil, and do good. Psalm 34:14

Ee.... Even a child is known by his doings. Proverbs 20:11

Ff..... Fear not: for I am with thee. Isaiah 43:5

Gg...... God is love. I John 4:8

Hh.... Honor they father and mother. Exodus 20:12

Ii...... If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it. John 14:14

Grace really seems to be enjoying her book, and she is beginning to say the scriptures along with me as I read. Maybe soon, she'll commit them to memory and they will provide her with a strong spiritual foundation on which to build her life.

And what a life it is!
I feel very blessed to be a part of it!


  1. This is adorable! What a great idea! and I love the use of technology too. I can remember sewing and cutting an pasting, but I'd imagine the photo paper is more durable. I guess I should be fair and make some sort of little book for my youngest. Thanks for the ideas!!

  2. I don't know what happened to my last comment ... but I was wondering if I could order one of these from you?!? I LOVE it!!!

  3. i've always wondered what grace calls you.... Will olivia's have the same verses or will each one be different?

  4. This is awesome Patty! Can we order a book?

  5. My younger brother who is in A beka and K-5 Knows all of these!!! He has been enjoying school from the beginning. The first day we almost went crazy . He asked if he could do another lesson after he would finish one. When i found out he was planning to do the 5th lesson(on the first day
    ) i said "totally not". He loves school more than i do. lol :)
