Hi! I wanted to drop in to let you know about some changes coming to Joy by Jess. Over the past 5+ years, I’ve loved sharing my hand lettering through Joy by Jess and am extremely grateful for all the followers that have been on this journey with me. Recently, I’ve felt the tug to clarify the direction of Joy by Jess and wanted to share that with you. So here it goes!
The inspiration for this relaunch comes from:
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.”
This verse will be the guiding mission for Joy by Jess moving forward. My faith is a huge part of my life, and I want to be more intentional with how 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 will be 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.”
As I’ve done in the past, I will continue to hand letter scripture and words of encouragement as reminders to myself and all my followers.
I’m excited to begin with this renewed vision and would be honored for you to join me on this joyful journey! ?
