Hi friends! I’m so grateful to have you on my site following along with my hand lettering journey! I’d love to share a little bit about the mission of Joy by Jess. The inspiration comes from:
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.”
This verse is the guiding mission for Joy by Jess. My faith is a huge part of my life, and I want this comes through in my lettering. To work toward this mission, I drew from verses 7-9:
“Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”
Some of the content you can expect from Joy by Jess will focus on the reasoning for and practical application of teaching your kids scripture. It’s important to impress God’s commandments on your children, and I want to help you talk about them with your family
“Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.”
Another focus of Joy by Jess is on developing thoughtful worn reminders of scripture. Wearing reminders can be a great way to bring scripture back to the top of your mind throughout the day.
“Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.”
Since 2014, I have been hand lettering scripture and words of encouragement as reminders to myself and all my followers.
I’m excited that you’re here and would be honored for you to join me on this joyful journey! ?
