Christian Music Decor

Lyrics For Life

I love Contemporary Christian music! There so many great artists who know just the right words to sing, bringing us to our knees in tears, or dancing in praise! And sometimes in the same song!

Do you have that song that just reaches out and touches your soul that you know has impacted and possible changed your life? Is there a lyric of that song that you remember and love? Or is it a lyric you would love others to know and cherish as you do?

The Lyrics For Life are plaques of those music lyrics we have grown to love!

 

The Lyrics For Life are 2 for $20, and are 5 1/2″ square. They have a keyhole on the back to be hung, or a peg to stand on a desk or shelf. Some are even embellished with glitter! The 8 featured songs are:
1. Father’s Love Hymn,
2. How He Loves Us (here sung by David Crowder),
3. Better Is One Day (sung here by Matt Redman),
4. My King (sung here by Newsboys),
5. The Revelation Song (sung here by Kari Jobe),
6. I Will Rise (sung here by Chris Tomlin),
7. Everlasting Song (sung here by Lincoln Brewster).

See how pretty they could be in your home!
Lyrics for Life

A great gift for a friend, music teacher, ministers or clergy, bible study, or just for yourself!

Which is your favorite Christian music song?

As For Me And My House We Will Serve The Lord

I personally just love when men love the Mary & Martha products! When I am a vendor and a man walks by stops looks around and tells me “Thank you for being here”, or “Your booth reminds me of my home growing up”, I just get chills. Men want their home to look a certain way too! So often we as women as so the ones to decorate and purchase things for the house, that we forget to buy things that would make it a home! Often I have men purchase an item telling me “our house just needs this message”. I love when they step up and want to set the statement of their home, after all they are the man of the house!

The one item I have had men love and purchase the absolute most is The As For Me And My House We Will Serve The Lord wall decor.  It comes from Joshua 24:15 and sets a statement for a home. It declares this is what we will do, how we will act, and who we will serve. There will not denying that it is a Christian home based off of Christian values, and that loves and wants to serve our Lord! And when a man buys this for his home! Praise the Lord! He is declaring and carrying his family through faith and direction.

The As For Me And My House We Will Serve The Lord is metal is 23″ W x 17″ H. It is metal in rich brown tones and can be hung indoors or under a covered shelter.

Let me show you some ways it has been displayed outside of homes (under a covered shelter).
as-for-me-pic 1978774_266553183519551_920344516_n

Or inside the home… in a quite prayer corner, with family pictures, at the top of a split staircase, or above a cabinet.

So ladies if your man brings this piece home… you will find the perfect spot for it I am sure. Declare is strong and proud! PS… also make a great gift for a man (Christmas, Birthday, Fathers Day to name a few)!

Insert Last Name

Our last name! From little on, we learn that our last name connects us to family and gives us a belonging. It proudly shows our nationality and our heritage. It tells us who we are and shows others who belongs to us! We write our last name so people know us from others and display our last name on our mailbox so people know where we live. But what about inside our homes, do you have your last name there? We all want our children feel unique and loved, and a last name does just that, so displaying your last name inside a home is powerful, and… the reason why personalization is popular.

Let’s look at a few wall hangings and insert a last name.
1. Family Rules Canvas

Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 12.16.09 PM

This chalkboard look canvas comes in a wrapped canvas, or white, black, or gold frame. It not only reads the last name but declares the loving rules of the home, and shows it’s faith reminders too. Pray, forgive, love God, and others statements that provide the basis of a strong family.

2. God’s Sweet Grace Canvas

Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 12.15.40 PM

 

This canvas looks like wood, and has a stamped look. It also comes in a wrapped canvas, or white, black, or gold frame. It reads the last name, and gives the establishment date, which makes this a wonderful wedding gift for the new couple! And reminds us of God’s Grace, which we need daily!

3. State of Mind Canvas

Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 12.15.56 PM

 

On this canvas you can pick your state, choose your color, and add your name. It also comes in a wrapped canvas, or white, black, or gold frame. The fine print under the word mine reads: As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15. Have you lived in several states? Would be fun to make a wall collage of all the states you’ve called home!

How could you use these wall hangings in your home?

  • How about making a gallery wall of several pieces that are meaningful to your family. This picture is an example.
    Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 12.11.36 PM
  • Or give a gift that is personalized! By adding a name to a gift makes it makes it meaningful, thoughtful, and one they will treasure. Years to come it will still hold their name and the loving gesture of receiving when they received it and who gave it lives on!

What item do you have in your home with your last name on it?

I remember my girls helping me cook and bake, and those moments together in the kitchen are some of the most important ones in life. Not only are they learning a life long skill, but the conversations or songs sang while baking cookies are precious. It’s just the two of you working together, and living and sharing life together. I love how this apron can make that moment even more special!

What was something you loved to baked or cooked growing up? Please share!
