A Different Kind of Memo Board

 I almost didn't share this project, in a strange way, it feels a bit more personal than I usually get here. I made these for me, to remind me, to help me. But, hey, what's the point in having a craft blog if you're not going to share it, so here goes. I'll try to keep my explanation short...but I know I'm going to be long winded today, so feel free to just scroll down to the pictures if you only want to see what I made.
For a while I've been wanting to make a board to tack bible verses on that I come across and want to commit better to memory. I've also thought at time it would be nice to have a prayer board of some kind, because I often leave something out of my prayers. I've also thought it would be nice to have a little place to remind myself to work on things (be patient, speak with gentleness, etc.). These were 3 separate ideas that were in the back of my mind that all came together this weekend. I had 3 framed prints that I didn't much care for anymore. I took the frames from those prints and re-purposed them into 3 pretty yet functional dry erase boards.

My board for writing Bible verses I want to memorize:
Write them on the tablet of your heart (Proverbs 7:3)

My board for writing prayer reminders:
Pray Continually (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
My personal reminder board:

How great the love the Father has lavished on us. That we should be called Children of God! (1 John 3:1)
Here's what they look like on my wall:

The glass acts like a dry erase board. I have small dry erase markers that have an eraser built into the cap and have a magnet attached to them, so they can hang on my refrigerator. The wall where these hang is directly across from my island in my kitchen...a place where I spend a lot of time. The finished size of each frame is 10" x 10". I cut the words from vinyl. To make cleaning easy I cut the words backwards and adhered them to the inside of the frame instead of the outside.

Thanks for stopping by!

I am very very glad that you shared this! I was looking for some kind of prayer board to make for my room of three disciples that I will be leading on a 9 week summer leadership project, and this is perfect. Thank you so much!
