Scripture Bags


A few months ago I went to a fundraiser for our local maternity home. I drove home that night thinking that I wanted to start doing something for the sweet mamas staying at the home each month. I decided that surrounding them with scripture to remind them of God’s great love for them would be my goal and that each month I’d give them a bag full of scripture. As I finished the bags for this month and prayed for these sweet mamas this morning, I thought I’d share what I put in each bag in case you have someone that needs to be reminded how loved they are. It only takes a few minutes and can cost almost nothing!


In the bags this month I included:

A “ Who I am in Christ” image that I laminated. This was written by my precious friend Terri’s mama and I love it so. You can print a copy here: https://goo.gl/hCidkJ .
The Comparison & Envy Scripture Writing Plan for this month. Last month in their bags I gave them the plan and a notebook. This month’s plan I put in a page protector. You can print a copy here: https://goo.gl/eoX1Lw.
A bookmark I created and had printed. You can make your own or purchase one.
This super cute magnet I found at Hobby Lobby. It was $2.99 and found in the check-out area.
A printable of 2 Chronicles 20:15 (which is one of my all-time favorites) and an army man. I love this reminder that the battle is His, not ours.  You can print a copy here: https://goo.gl/Bn8jzT .
Micah 5:5 verse printable that I created and printed at Walgreens and placed in a $1 frame from Michael’s (that was on sale for 50 cents). You can print a copy here: https://goo.gl/rLojGL .

Everything in the bag I already had except the magnets and the bags themselves. Total it cost me about $20 for 6 bags. It doesn’t have to be expensive at all- you can truly use what you have! 

Pray for God to show you someone who needs a little encouragement and a reminder that they are loved and create your own Scripture Bag surprise for them today!
