Scripture On The Beams #FredNMimiBuildAHome

When the house was first fully framed, the boys and I went out with Fred to add scripture on the 2x4s in every room of the house. They were fun to think up, and I let the boys decide on whichever scripture they like. Fred also went out a separate time with his daughter so she could write in her room.

So, here are the scriptures in each room in no particular order..


My 16 yr old son wrote, “Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward for him.” Psalm 127:3.


Kids bathroom, “because on this day atonement will be mae for you, to cleanse you. Then, before the Lord, before the Lord, you will be clean from all your sins.” Leviticus 16:30


Fred put this scripture in his son’s room, “’My son,’ said the father, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’” Luke 15:31-32


In my youngest son’s room, “But those who humbled themselves will be exalted, and those who exalt themselves will be humbled.” Matthew 23:12


In our living room, “Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers for thereby some have entertained angels unaware.” Hebrews 13:2


In our dining room, “You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, who has dealt wondrously with you.” Joel 2:26


In our closet, “And over all these virtues, put on love which binds them all together in perfect unity.” Colossians 3:14


In the garage, “Prepare your work outside; Get everything ready for yourself in the field, and after that build your house.” Proverbs 24:27

You might be wondering where the photo is from the scripture written in the master bedroom is. Well, I DID take a photo, back in June, but as I looked at it to edit it, I can’t read it because it’s completely blurry. Of course, since it’s been over 2 months since we wrote on those walls, I can’t remember what it said. Fred wrote it, and he couldn’t figure out any of it either. Maybe one day I’ll be able to decipher it, and add it on here. I’m sure it said something about love. Who knows, when it comes to Fred, it probably came from Song of Solomon. HA!

I think we had one in our kitchen, too, but sadly didn’t get a photo of that. Such a bummer. I thought I did so well with all of the scripture. At least I’ll have them here to remember them!

It was too late when I learned this, but a couple of people have but a Bible in the ground for the foundation to be poured onto. How awesome is that?

If you could add a scripture to the frame of your home, what would it be?

I think that's a fantastic idea to put scripture on the beams!
