What can a few beads, a piece of string, and a little creative inspiration provide? A daily reminder to act boldly on your faith in Jesus Christ. Even the least crafty among us can make a beautiful bookmark. All you need are alphabet beads to spell out “act boldly,” some other beautiful beads of varying size, some wax linen string, and a pair of scissors. Get together with some friends, or your children, and let your creative flag fly.
The inner portion of this bookmark (without any beads) fits nicely within the pages of a book, allowing the two beaded ends to hang out the top and bottom of the book. It will easily fit within most paperback books and many Bibles.
If using this bookmark with a devotional book or Bible, you might treat the bookmark much like a rosary or prayer beads. Say a prayer petition as you touch each bead, perhaps offering thanks for ways in which you were able to act boldly this day or seeking discernment as you find your bold.
Instructions are available on our website.
