I love Faith Sisters because I've found a group of ladies who have the same heart, mind and passion as I do. A passion to use this gift of scrapbooking to glorify the Lord!

KarenSue said...

I'm a beginner with Faithsisters, but I hope that this site will be a tool to help me grow in my faith.

so, for me, I love that you are available as a resource.

Lisa S. said...

I discovered your site from a post (over at 2Peas) about faith booking and the new Scripture Challenge with Patter. Through Faith Sisters, I've joined my first challenge and found a support system for 2 of my 2008 goals: strengthen my faith and scrapbook more often. Thank you!

Ms. Mize said...

I just discovered your blog recently. I haven't done any of the challenges yet. I enjoy scrapping and have attended a group at church that gets together to scrap once a month. I haven't scrapped in awhile and would like to get back into doing it. So I am looking forward to new ideas!

Momma Mariany said...

I just found Faith Sisters this past week! It's so great to find Sisters in Christ who love the things I love! Can't wait to share and learn more about everyone and share our love for the Lord!

Happy New Year!
Blessings,
Erica

Sara said...

I'm another that has only recently discovered Faith Sisters. I too am joining in with the Scripture Challenge with Patter Cross (via Scrapjazz) as I am a total beginner at scrapbooking, and am hoping this will help me challenge myself in that area. But, more importantly I want to renew my fellowship with the Lord and I think this is a great way to help me to delve into the scriptures as eagerly as I used to a few years ago! It's given me the push I needed to start having quiet time with my husband too... we sat to read and pray together this evening, which we haven't do in far too long!
So thanks for the encouragement I have received already, and I look forward to seein what the Lord has in store for us all this year.
Thanks friends!

Paige said...

I love it b/c as a new person here it is going to encourage me to use more scripture in my layouts.

dougnat said...

I'm new to Faith- Sisters and am sooo excited to have found you!! Here's to 2008!!!

Regan Tomlin said...

I too am brand new here....and am excited to see where scrapbooking will take my on my faith journey. I have wanted to explore the Bible for quite some time, and I think the scripture challenge is the perfect tool to do this! Thanks so much for having this challenge!!!!!

stephanie said...

i'm familiar with FS...happy with what you are trying to do here. goal for 2008 is to grow more in my faith and get to cracking on my scrapbooks...can't wait to take my first challenge.

kristii said...

I am so excited to find a site that I can share my faith and encourage and find encouragement in my faith! How wonderful to have Christ as well as scrapping as a common bond!!

Rach said...

My reasons for being started out simply because I "knew" the founders. Then I began to spend a few minutes a day really 'thinking' about the meaning of my life and where I needed to be. Your site has helped me focus more on my 'reasons' for being. And of course because Krystal Hartley is a designer here...that only adds to my happiness with your site! Thank you for what you do and for making me 'think' and 'believe' again. Sometimes we let HIM drive and sometimes we let him just ride. He's driving for me again!

Sonya and David said...

What a great way to start the new year...lifting up each other and sharing the goodness of our great God!
Just found this blog and look forward to scrapbooking and lifting up the Lord in 2008.

Natalie said...

I'm so glad I found Faith Sisters. I came to you during a time that I needed the sisterhood the most. I look forward to a new year of spiritual growth and making many new/dear friends.

Stephanie said...

Hey ladies!! Well I just discovered Faith Sisters a few days ago and I am so glad that I did. Everyone here is so friendly and welcoming and the challenges are all so inspiring! I am so happy to have found a community that helps me grow in my relationship with the Lord and also in my creativity! God bless you and your ministry. :o)

hotteacher1976 said...

I love Faith Sisters because I've discovered a place where I can be comfortable with my faith and my love of scrapbooking.

What an awesome combination!!!

Jennifer said...

I love having a safe place to share my faith and a hobby I love. I can't wait to see what the New Year brings this wonderful group.

Barb said...

I love giveaways!!!

I love coming over to Faith Sisters. I started coming as a way to reconnect with some of my LP sisters, but instead I have found a way to reconnect with God and Jesus. And that is just awesome! Thank you girls!!!

Angela said...

Faith Sisters is such a breath of fresh air in the overwhelming world of scrapbooking blogs and websites. I enjoy the creativity side of Faith Sisters, but more importantly I'm always either challenged, refocused or both in my walk as a Christian after reading the blog posts and seeing the creative work. I am so excited about the Scripture challenge for 2008 and am ready to get started! Happy Blessed 2008 to all of you....

A Cup of Joy said...

I love the great ideas. The beauty and loveliness displayed. The encouragement and delight it brings!

batmite267 said...

I found you just this week and am so thankful!! I have looked at other scrapbooking websites and although they have tons of information, advertisements, galleries, etc, I found them lacking. Now I know why. I want to tell my story and my family's and friend's stories and I think I can do than with your help! I love that you are ministering to people like me. I look forward to a new year with new opportunities!

Anonymous said...

I love faith sisters for just that reason - sisters in faith! Something is always better when shared with those who Believe. So ya know scrappin' has to be that much better sharing it which those sisters who share the passion for scrappin and the passion for the Lord! Woo hoo! Plus, the pages I see here are very beautiful and inspirating as well. Inspiration in abundance - in more ways than one! Happy New Year!!

katemeri said...

I am pretty new to Faith Sisters and am really looking forward to the scripture challenge. I have been wanting to scrap my favorite scripture but never got around to it and now I have the oomph that I needed. Thanks so much!

marileetmom said...

I love Faith Sisters because I have grown in my walk with Christ just from being on this forum.  My prayer life has increased because I care so much for everyone on here! I also am getttin great ideas about scrapbooking my faith.  I had never really thought about doing that before, but this forum has really inspired me to do this.  I LOVE FAITH SISTERS!

mommato7 said...

Faith sisters has been a real blessing to me! Having just moved to a pretty rural area Faith Sisters has given me an awesome group of new friends to scrap with but the best is that we all want to use our scrapbooking to glorify God and show His work in our lives! what a blessing!!

Maricar said...

I am a newbie with Faith Sisters, but I love the inspirations (even if I do nothing scrapbook related with them) because it makes me stop and think about God and His place in my life. My goal in the new year is to follow through with some of your challenges and to give God a place in my scrapbooks.

melissac said...

Thank you Sunny, Michelle and Karma for creating Faith Sisters. This site has already blessed my life in so many ways. I love how I was welcomed and new friendships are already starting. The best part of all is that your site keeps me focused on God and His Word!! Thank you!! Thank you!!

Scrappygirl said...

I am a newbie here at FaithSisters, but I have been warmly welcomed and look forward to sharing my faith with my new sisters. Love it here beacause you share great inspiration to everyone.

Laurie said...

Oh man! This is amazing! I love Faith Sisters because it inspires me to use my faith in God in my scrapbooking. It is also a really great way to learn about the faiths of others and get creative inspiration! I'm so glad I found this site!

ms.cheryl said...

boobooburns said...

I have been a part of this site for a little while now and I had just came across it when I had suggested doing something like this to the owner of a LSS in my area that I always go to and then lo and behold - I found you! Wow, isn't it awesome how the LORD works! Although I haven't done any postings, I love this site for the inspiration and the challenge you offer, and all in the name of the LORD and for HIS GLORY! Thank you all for all that you do to keep this site up and running and I will continue to keep you in my prayers. And... I think I am gonna participate in the Scripture Challenge 2008, anyone and everyone can always use more time in our Bibles, what better way than to be able to combine it with another love - scrapbooking! God Bless You all in 2008. Thanks, Sheryl

Kim K. said...

I'm kind of new hear too, but I love getting the newsletters, and I enjoy seeing how other ladies' are documenting the wonderful things God has done in their lives. So inspiring!

Kay said...

As a single mom with work, school, church, and just being mom I just do not get out much. You have been able to combin women, God, prayer support, and scrapbooking in one place that is available to anyone at any time of the day. Thank you

HapEScrapr said...

This site reminds me that this hobby is a gift from God and I should remember that through all the beauty that can be created it should be used to glorify him or it is just a waste.

Regina Ellison said...

I love it because it focuses on faith and scripture. I am always finding new topics to journal and share my faith by viewing what others have done. But most importantly because the site is about faith, I don't have to perform long exhaustive searches like I would if I visited other websites. I absolutely LOVE this site.

stolenbaby said...

I am new to Faith Sisters and found it thru Patter's blog. This year is going to be a turning point for me in my faith and I know God put brought me here and to Patter for many reasons. I feel so blessed to be able to share my faith, growth and journey with ladies who share the same heart. God is so good!!

scraphappy247 said...

I am VERY new to Faith Sister but from what I have witnessed in my short time here, I HAVE BEEN LED TO THE RIGHT PLACE. I have found a new home amoung ladies who share my same interests and faith. God Bless you all!!

Keleia said...

Considering the time zone difference...I guess I came in a little late! I love Faith Sisters because of the Christian Fellowship and love that has been found here. I am looking forward to finding out all this website has to offer! So many different threads and beautiful, God-honoring layouts. I love you all, dear sisters in Christ Jesus our Lord! Blessings, Keleia

~ScrappieJackie~ said...

Me...try to narrow down the reasons for loving this Faith Sisters site? Easier said than done =) But from my very first post this site has felt like ~home~ What a blessing it has been to my life to be surrounded by such loving.. kind... supportive... creative... faithful... AMAZING women~!! Thank you for starting this much needed niche in the scrapbooking world.
Oh...and I rather like those smileys too =)

Denise said...

I have been a lurker for the past month here at Faith Sisters. It has been such a joy to add faith into my projects and layouts. I'm looking forward to share projects with you and become encourager's to each other in '08.

SusanC said...

Well I found out about this site from Krystal Hartley and I read and look at it almost every day. I really want to learn to reach deep and journal from the heart. I have a strong testimony of the true gospel of Jesus Christ but sometimes to catch that feeling and relay it into tagible form is a challenge for me. Some of the layouts and journaling I've seen will send me in the right direction.
Thanks for a place to combine some of the loves of my life.

Melanie Morales - By God's Design said...

I love Faith Sisters because of my faith. I searched for resources that would help me beautifully bring into my faith and God into my scrapbook and my art. And came up short. I knew when I found Faith Sisters, I found something more than just a resource; I found a resource that would also help me and challenge me to continue to grow in my faith. I looking forward to the two challenges for 2008.

I just recently found Faith Sisters, and it has been Such a blessing to me! Thank you, Ladies, for stepping out and starting such a WONDERFUL, Spiritual, & creative website for all of us to enjoy!

Like many posts before mine, I too am fairly new at FS. I believe the Lord has directed my path here for inspiration as I try my hands at designing. Great find!

Ms. Sanders said...

I am blessed by Faith Sisters because they are the one scrapbooking site that helps me bring my love of God into my favorite hobby. I always strive to glorify Him in all I do, and Faith Sisters makes it very easy! Thank you for all you do!

Helen said...

Anything that challenges you to grow in your relationship with the Lord is a good thing. Combine that with scrapbooking and it becomes a GREAT thing. I am so excited about the 2008 Scripture Challenge and how it will deepen my love for Jesus. Thank you to everyone who works very hard to keep this site going!

Princess Jessica said...

Faith Sisters is such a one-of-a-kind, unique website out there. As far as I know, it is the only scrapbooking website that inspires and encourages us scrapbookers to scrapbook our faith in Jesus Christ and the things of our faith that are so important. It is so neat to have a site like this.

Hope said...

I just found Faith Sisters a few weeks back and I am excited to learn more and to become a part of your community. Your mission is exactly what has been missing from my scrapbooking and what I hope to add to it moving forward in 2008 and beyond. Keep up the amazing work. This is a much needed ministry!

scrappin4ever said...

I joined Faith Sisters a little over a month ago and right away I felt at home with all these friendly ladies with whom I share the same values and beliefs. I love the idea of combining scrapbooking and our love of God. Also one of my resolutions for 2008is to do more layouts and spent less time online! So the idea of challenges and specially the scripture challenge is just what I need now.

Lori said...

I am so thankful to find Faith sisters, It combines so many of my favorite things, scrapbooking, message boards, inspriation but most of all my faith in God. I am also thankful for wonderful ladies who spread the word about this great place to enjoy. (you know who you are )

I am a missionary in the edge of the jungle in Honduras and have no access to any scrapbooking materials. It is awesome to be able to go on line and download your freebes to scrapbook our stories! I work in a mission hospital in a wound care clinic where we treat only the poorest of poor people. It is so encouraging to hear from other Christian women who love our Jesus and it is a blessing to know that we are enjoying scrapbooking our journey. Our journey has been very hard at times and it is easy to feel alone out here. It takes us an hour and a half, on a good day when the rivers are down, to get to the nearest grocery store. What a honor it is to serve the poor here on the north coast. We have 2 15yr. old Honduran daughters which we love very much. I have used some of your freebes to make pages about their lives. Thank you for all of your encouragement on your site. This is the first time I have ever written to you. God bless!

Cheryl said...

My favorite thing about Faith Sisters is how positive and encouraging everyone is. From a new layout you create to sharing a life experience, there are sisters out there who are willing to be vessels of God and encourage and exhort their sisters. I am thankful to God every day for the new friends and support I have found here. It's my second home!

Tina said...

I am pretty new to Faith Sisters. I am hoping to do some of the challenges, and to really get to work on my Faithbook. I love that Faith Sisters allows people with similar interests...namely a love of God and scrapbooking...to strenghten and encourage one another in our walks. So, thanks for all the work you put into it!

Lisa J. said...

I just joined this board recently and still haven't fully delved into its depths but I love the beauty of its exterior and the work posted that I have seen! Beautiful praises to our King!

nannette said...

I am challenged by Faith Sisters to use my creative talents to pass on my faith to my family and friends. The wonderful friends I am making in this group, have helped me make the journey back to my Lord and Savior, and I hope to grow more in faith and wisdom, as I challenge myself with faith-booking. Thank you.

Dena said...

Why do I love Faithsisters? Let me count the ways....
There are many reasons I am so very thankful for this amazing sisterhood. The first one that comes to mind, is just the name...FaithSISTERS. I never had sisters, and lost my only brother about 10 years ago. I have always wanted sisters. Now, I have many, many sisters...all over the world! Another reason, is how I am daily encouraged to listen to the voice of God...to see Him in every day circumstances...and the Praying! I has been my absolute humble priveledge to pray for You ladies and your families and friends. And the fact (& I know it's a FACT) that I have sisters all over the world praying! It's amazing. Simply amazing. Thank you so very much!!! - Dena

ScrapFreak said...

A friend just recently told me about your blog. I love it! I can't wait to read more! I hope I win! I am doing a crop this weekend at our church. Its a fundraiser for our children's department! I think it will be a huge success!!!

scrapnbeetle said...

I am a newbie But I think I have found my very favorite site to watch( i am a lerker until I see something I can sink my teeth into) but for the last few weeks I have enjoyed seeing that we are a dying breed, women who scrap and have faith in Jesus Christ!
I live this place hee hee

karen In Houston said...

It is so great to see so many faith sisters, sisters in Christ. I am hoping to become more involved with this wonderful group of women.Thank you for following what God put on your heart, as I know this site is inspired by God.
God bless you for creating this site.

A-M said...

I live on the other side of the world, here in Australia to most of the members but I feel like you are just living next door. I am thoroughly enjoying the challenges and growing in my faith as I take part in the scripture challenge.
I am so glad I came across Faith Sisters.

daley's mom said...

I am so excited to find this site! I recently began a Faithbooking group at my church and needed a resource like this. I've cropped for 6 years and long to tell my faith story to future generations. You have inspired me with your great ideas. They are being passed along to others! You have found your ministry!

Ally0005 said...

I found Faith Sister because of Patter Cross blog, which I love. I haven't done any of the challenges yet, but enjoy scrapbooking. I also enjoy the Scripture
Concordance in the Resources. What a wonderful site and wonderful people.

Anonymous said...

please explain to me what faith sisters is all about. Are you christian sisters or what? How does one become a member ? I am trying to learn to scrapbook and am interested in finding some christian ladies to help me understand some of the techniques of scrapbooking. Thanks.

Faith Sisters said...

Hello,

All you need to do is go into our Faith Forum and register. From there you can chat with us and get any help that you may need! :) Welcome to FS!

Patti said...

I just found this site yesterday. I have so much digiscrap, yet I felt short on scripture and faith based word art. So I did a search on 'faith word art' and found you. What a blessing it was to find you! I love your site, every part of it. Having to be careful with my $$ I am greatful for not just your freebies, but the sale items. Lastly I really enjoyed seeing the pages others have posted. Some very talented folks!! Keep up the Good God work :) !!!

lizanne said...

I don't remember how I found my way here, but I'm glad I did. I'm just starting out with learning how to use PSP & digiscrapping in general. Hoping I'm not getting in way over my head (I am NOT very artistic) as I really like the things I've seen...

Anyhow, I am very impressed with your site - particularly your "My prayers for you" section. That is the kind of scrapping I hope to do with my boys' photos once I get the hang of things.

Gwen Hesson said...

I have seen some of the LOs done for your challenges...in particular the scripture challenges. I've been very inspired and would like to start working on my own faith album. Why shouldn't my belief in God be captured and included in my scrapbooks too? I'm so glad I found this site and like-minded scrappers!
