Armed With Truth GIVEAWAY.

We learn Bible verses each week.
The kids write them out and draw pictures.
And we recite them together.

I think there can be an artificial element to kids memorizing Scripture~ 
like just get an A, okay... Get your 100% for the year and you get a row full of stickers.
It can feel the same learning the verses at home, too...
One kid beating the other to the punch, trying to spit out the verse first.
Fist pump.
I won.
Beat you.
Sucker.

And then we miss the whole point.
To let God's Word live within us.
In the heart.
Not just in a neat place stored away in our thoughts.
Or as a challenge between siblings.

When it lives and breathes within, our lives will shine.
And I kinda want my kids to shine for Christ.

So, we tattoo them.
It's fine, we sign the wavers.

Just kidding.
(About the wavers~ not the tattoos.)
Armed with Truth is this amazing company that makes Scripture temporary tattoos. 
We put them on the kids...
And say go for it.
Read your arm here and there in your day.
You have God's Word at a glance.
And now you look like bad-ass kids to boot.
Share your light with the world.
Shine.
Memorize.
Live Jesus to others.

It is not a race.
Or a grade.
You get to live it.

And it is funny, when they have it with them~
on their arm, at a glance
No pressure~
Just high fives for the reciting of the Scripture,
even if it is sometimes imperfect
It stays with them.
Philly can still recite Matthew 6:34 perfectly.
And he got that tatted on his forearm months ago:).
Even when the tattoos fade, 
The verses stay.

That is pretty amazing:).
We are hooked.
And now the kids are almost as cool as their tattooed-up parents.
Almost.

  1. THat's SOOOOO awesome, I was thinking when I saw your twitter pic how cool those tatts would be to get a hold of - so this giveaway is exciting! I 'liked' them on facebook, but to pick a fav. verse is darn hard... I guess one of the first I think of is Ps.34:5 "They looked to Him and were radiant..." I love that reminder that ONLY in focusing on Christ.. do we then SHINE how we were made to. Love your shine too sis'!
