Hand Lettered Truth is a gift book that is filled with 60 hand-lettered verses. Each one is different and stunningly beautiful. Lifting us up with inspiration and love, one verse at a time.
I’ve always had a love for calligraphy and, as an adult, have played some with hand lettering. It definitely brings me joy to draw it out, but I am not brave or creative enough to do it without an image to go off of so I am always in awe of artistic people who can create such beautiful pieces of work. I love that they are able to come up with how to do it and just…. do it!
Perhaps my issue is one of fear, I’m always afraid it won’t look good so I don’t even try. I can probably also blame that at least part of that fear for my lack of creativity in the last few years, for a crafty website being less than crafty most of the time.
From time to time, something that I do for this website brings me inspiration. You can read about How a Tiny Little Pearl Inspired Me for another uplifting little story. I’d love to hear your comments, on this and that.
Back to the Book….
This book is packed full of 60 different scriptures, each one hand lettered with different colors and designs. She discusses how her hobby became her personal meditation with God. Her first hand lettered truth book wasn’t a published book, but rather a gift for her oldest daughter. In the introduction, she talks a little more about that and so much of it resounded with me.
The intro, being a typed ‘note,’ so to speak, was deeply touching and inspiring. It reminded me of the valleys I’ve been through, the mountains I’ve seen and the journeys all along the way. Amazing how powerful the intro was for me, as it is literally 1 slightly long and 2 short paragraphs. Perhaps her next book will be hand lettered inspirations that she gained from meditating on each scripture.
Debbie writes, “May it leave you thirsting for more.” Before I could even get to the first page of Hand Lettered Truth, her introduction reminded me of a deep, burning desire that lives within me, often getting pushed to the back burner as so many other things bombard me on a daily basis. I can absolutely expect each scripture, beautifully written and expressed on page after page, to deepen my love for Him and bring me encouragement.
