I love the idea of writing God’s Bible scriptures on the walls of your home anytime you are remodeling or building a home.

I know years ago in my best friend Laura’s home, a bunch of us gathered in her house when it was in the building stage we all wrote Bible scriptures on the walls. I just think it’s a great idea for covering your house in God’s word and staking your claim that your home belongs to the Lord.

You guys were watching along as I wrote Bible scriptures on many of the walls in our home on Instagram recently. (If you don’t already follow me on Instagram you can find me: @jenniferallwood.) So many of you reached out to me about this, I decided to blog about it here and share some of our written scriptures.

You can write on your walls in pencil because it doesn’t come through paint. So anytime you’re getting ready to re-paint or remodel, or put new carpet or flooring, it’s an opportune time to write on the foundations of your home.


Here are some of the scriptures we wrote before painting:

You can do it on your kid’s walls before they get painted and they will LITERALLY have no idea that they are being surrounded by Bible scriptures! LOL

    I love this idea, but as I was reading I was thinking, “why paint over them?” Paint them BOLDLY on the wall. Last week I was reading a book about Benjamin Franklin’s family and someone in the family would write Bible verses on the walls of their home. I LOVE THIS. I will be doing this as well.
    Thank you for sharing.
