When I was a teenager, I remember being so intrigued by the story of Samson. In fact, I had this particular verse posted on a bulletin board in my room during a time when I felt very sad and alone. There was something so inspirational about Samson’s trials.
He was “set apart” by God as a baby and was given supernatural strength. Without his hair, however, he was powerless. As a man, he fell in love with Delilah who eventually tricked him into divulging the secret to his power. While he slept, she and Samson’s enemies arranged to shave the hair from his head. Without his incredible strength to protect him, he was imprisoned and tortured. BUT despite his spiritual weaknesses and sins up to this point, (this is my favorite part) “his hair began to grow again.”
God’s will and gifts could not be undone. And He’s willing to meet us right where we are – sins and all – and lead us if we choose Him!
This is the inspiration behind this week’s Project Faith™ cards, and I hope you love them. Click the image below to download your own set:
Welcome back, friends! I was inspired this week by a blog post I saw on The Blazing Center. It’s called, “Dear Moms, Jesus Wants You To Chill Out.” I love this concept… this reminder to rest in Him!
I’ve created a set of cards this week that coordinate with this idea of “chilling out.” I hope you love them, and remember who’s “got you.”

The Serenity Prayer was one of the first prayers I learned as a kid – among others like “God is great. God is good. Let us thank Him for our food.” 🙂 and the Lord’s Prayer, of course! I think the Serenity Prayer is tremendously helpful to those of us with anxiety and worry, and this week’s Project Faith™ cards include a stylized version of it along with an oversized polka dot pattern!

And a big shout out to you all for your encouragement and enthusiasm for Creative Retreat following my announcement last week. You are awesome, and I thank you for continuing to visit, read, support, and download!
So, the big news I mentioned previously, YAY it’s finally time to share!! You may know that each month I design exclusive die cuts and stamp sets for Creative Retreat embellishment kit club. Well, I recently had the opportunity to purchase the company, and I took a leap of faith and pounced on it! I am so excited to share the new site (www.creativeretreatkits.com) and the great changes we’re making!
Either way, you can continue to follow Project Faith™ right here at DYD and enjoy FREE weekly pocket card downloads! This week’s Project Faith™ was inspired by the beautiful song “Oceans.” I chose some of my favorite lyrics from the song to create a pair of pocket cards. I love this diagonal color block look, and I’m thrilled with the way these turned out!
I hope they inspire you this week to be lead by the Spirit wherever He would call you. Click the image below to download!
This week marks half a year of Project Faith™! I have to admit the weekly devotional/design time has been inspiring and therapeutic for me, and I thank you for joining me along the way! Let’s keep it going…
Today we have a very special guest designer – the Hubs! He is a graphic designer as well as our family’s spiritual leader. His faith and wisdom often guides me when I’m feeling
anxious, selfish, scared, lost. Some time ago he created this graphic following a particularly inspiring sermon, and I’ve recreated it as a pocket card.
The original scripture says,
“But David found strength in the Lord his God.” – 1 Samuel 30:6
The sermon which the cards are based on encouraged the congregation to personalize the passage by exchanging “David” for “I” and “his” for “my.”
“But I found strength in the Lord my God.” Then take it a step further. “Strength” can be exchanged with so many attributes!
