Christmas 2014 I enjoyed making Jesus Bracelets for my friends and family. One morning while praying, I was sad I couldn't make one of the bracelets for a dear Jewish friend. God whispered very clearly to my heart, "It's the same story."
I mentally went through the beads and story in my mind but ended up stuck on the cross. How could the cross fit into the old Testament narrative of Joseph and the Hebrew nation?
With another God-nudge, the cross tilted onto its side. Ah. The Roman numeral X to represent the ten plagues! It all fit. Twice through the beads gave the entire Bible overview, Old AND New Testaments! Thus Bible Jewelry was born. Every time I assemble a piece of Bible Jewelry or share the story, I revel once more in the beautiful symmetry of Yahweh's plan of salvation.
Bible Jewelry is a God gift: beautiful, simple, fun tools to help tell the greatest love story ever.
