God Box

I got this idea from a book I just finished reading. In the book this gal was showing her friend her “God Box” that she had made. She said whenever something was weighing heavily on her mind or she had a prayer request she would write it down on a piece of paper and give it to God by putting it in the box.  I really liked the idea so I decided to make myself one. I got a paper mache box from Hobby Lobby with the idea of covering it in material, which by the way, I had never done before. I was reading one of my favorite blogs, Our Pioneer Homestead, and Pamela had just made a tutorial on how to do this. Thanks to her I covered my box with no problems. Be sure to check out her blog! She is so talented!

So here is my own“God Box” where I plan to give all my cares and requests to Him but I also plan to give Him thanks and gratitude for the blessings He sends my way…

  5. I LOVE THIS!!! Thank you so much for sharing! What a wonderful idea! I've been wanting to try my hand at covering a box with fabric, but haven't quite gotten up the nerve. This might just be the thing that tips me into action! Just curious... what book were you reading? Was it any good? I just figured if it was talking about a God Box then it must be good :)Blessings, Patti
