Scripture Challenge: Where We Have Gone & a RAK!

Good evening everyone! The 50th challenge has been posted. Can you believe we only have two weeks left? It is hard for me to believe that it has been 50 amazing weeks already. I pray you have been blessed by the study!

I wanted to share with you where I started with my Scripture Challenge ATC holder and where I am now. Here is what it looked like back in early February just a few weeks into the challenge: And here is what it looks like after 50 weeks of study: This ATC holder represents many things to me--favorite scriptures, many precious hours spent in His amazing Word, a history to pass down, a scripture reference when I need it, and much, much more. This sits on my desk, and it is very precious to me.

**Please note, the following RAKs have been given away. Thank you!

I would love to see where you have come this year. If you have completed an album, an ATC holder, etc., I would love to see photos! Please post them in a gallery, on your blogs, wherever you would like and leave a link here in the comment section for all of us to see. I will be giving away two RAKs for those that post images from this year's study.

The first RAK is a book by Donna Partow called "Soon to be a Major Motion Picture." The description of the book is:

"In Soon to Be a Major Motion Picture, Donna Partow uses her own 'it could have been a major motion picture' life experiences to challenge you to take a closer look at your life. With humorous stories and faith-enriching insights on how to become all you want to be as a follower of Christ, Partow encourages you to revel in the joy of God's grace, no matter where you are in life and in your relationship with God. Honestly and openly communicating heartfelt struggles faced by countless women everywhere, Soon to Be a Major Motion Picture will teach you to let go of the drama, stretch your soul, and draw closer to God."
The second RAK is a book by Lisa Whelchel called "Speaking Mom-ese." The description of this book is:

"Lisa Whelchel definitely knows how to speak the language of motherhood. From the days you just want to break down in tears because the kids are sick and cranky and the house is a wreck, to the joys of seeing your kids' eyes light up when they 'get' a new understanding of God's love, she's been there and can relate. Through 52 mini devotions, Speaking Mom-ese provides encouragement and connects moms to each other and to God."
Please leave your links here by Sunday, December 21st, at 11:59 p.m. CST. Two winners will be announced on Monday, December 22nd.

I can't wait to see what you have done this year. And for those of you that will be doing this challenge next year, I hope this gets you excited for what is to come. Blessings to each of you!

I am so sorry. I have followed your challenge. But I let the "world" get in my way. So, after seeing yours, I am inspired to make my own starting in January.
Yours is simply beautiful. And I would love that book by Lisa. It sounds like a good one. Both of them sound good.

I just found this - and definitely want in for 2009. Will you be doing it again?

Dawnie said...

Patter, I am a follower of your blog but have not participated in the challenges. However, I wanted you to know how much I have appreciated what you do here - not just the creativity, but the bible study. I let life get in my way too often so to take a few moments every week to check in w/you and "get a dose" was really comforting. Thank you, thank you, thank you - and God Bless!

Hi Patter! I love what you did with the scripture challenges. I hope you are doing it again this coming year. I have had one of those photo revolving things sitting around forever, and started working this year so I haven't been able to go to my BS as I normally did. This would be a perfect way to combine both of my loves, although God of course is the greatest love of mine :)
Beautiful work Patter, way to use the gift God has blessed you with!

Your ATC stand looks great - it looks very similar to mine which I will photograph once I complete the very last one - week 52. Then I will share it.
Thanks for all your guidance this year - you truly are a blessing to us all.

mcbetty said...

Wonderful to see your ATC stand full of scripture. You're a beautiful role model for all of us.
I simply can't decide if I want to do 6x6 or ATC for next year.

Debbie Olson said...

Patter, this is a lovely, and even more, such a meaningful collection of art! I think I may have to order one of the ATC carousels and start one of these!

Wow!! I just found this and I am TRULY humbled by this. It represents a challenge in so many areas of my life and just more of a confirmation to me that GOD is definately wooing me back to HIM, through all of my clutter and distraction. Please, please tell me when you will be reissuing this challenge.

Thank you for allowing yourself to be used by HIM,
Tiffany

Patter Cross said...

Hi Tiffany! Thank you for your kind words. I truly give Him all the glory. And how exciting that you see Him "wooing" you back! Join us!!! I am redoing the challenge this year along with a new challenge called His Holy Name. Both challenges will be posted today between 4:45-5:00 PM Central time on my blog. We would love to have you join in. Feel free to e-mail me if you have questions. Have a blessed day!
