Description:

Bible Journaling is taking another new twist and this one is super fun, compact, cheap, and WAY less intimidating than painting in that beautiful Bible! What is it? Faithdex Cards! A Little History Back in the day there was this thing called a Rolodex. They were mainly used in the business world to keep up with contacts numbers and address…And you can actually still buy them! Though I doubt many people use them for their intended purpose anymore. Memorydex Cards-Quite a few years ago Heidi Swapp came out with a new thing where people were using this same type system but used them to make memory cards, using pictures and things of that nature. Heidi Swapp's website has tons of information on this. And it was a dream come true for paper crafters everywhere. It is like scrapbooking in mini form! What is a Faithdex Card?-Memorydex is to scrapbooking what faithdex cards are to Bible journaling! It is that simple. It is another way to Bible journal but in a smaller and less intimidating way. It is totally no biggie if you mess up! You just trash the card and start over. This gives you the freedom to try new things without fear of messing up your Bible. And then you decorate to your heart’s content. Here is what I love about these little cards. First, while I am making my card, I am spending time with God. Second, I am writing and meditating on Scripture Third, I can take these cards out and post them around the house to help me memorize and meditate on Scripture even more! It is a beautiful thing!" **The above information was sourced from the quitehomemaker.com

Are You Ready? Are you ready to try out your own card? So here's what we are going to do. This will be a monthly swap. So you will have roughly 25 days to complete this. I am hoping that it will arrive around the first/fifteenth of the month to offset the gloominess of all those bills we have to open. Each month beginning in April we will read & meditate on One Chapter of Proverbs, ie Proverbs 1, Proverbs 2, etc... We will take what we gleamed from that chapter (Proverbs 1) & create a snapshot ( yes, the Faith Dex Card) We will place the card in an envelope. We will add a flat surprise We will then seal & send the envelope.

**For March we are just getting to know each other*** I hope that this swap will get our creative journaling juices flowing & introduce us to one another... So for this swap I am asking you to create or purchase a faith dex card for each of your partners & place Your name on it. (It is my hope that when someone sees your name, they will say a little prayer for you). Please decorate the Faith Dex Card however you would like: make it silly, make it funny, or serious, hand-lettering, stickers, or computer generated even... just have fun with it. Secondly on the backside of the card place whatever new name you feel GOD has bestowed upon you , i.e. "beloved", "beautiful", etc. On a separate sheet of paper tell them the meaning behind your given name & your new name: include the chapter and verse of where you found your new identity... just have fun with it.

You will have about one month to get your cards together for (1) partner. Please don't forget to include your swap bot user id,swap info and date-mail on time. Please remember to rate generously & promptly!! After all we are all about Sharing GOD's Grace. Don't forget to pray for the recipient! I will angel if necessary And please, let's have fun with this. Don't take this too seriously! These monthlys are supposed to be fun!

This swap timing must be divinely inspired 😇 because I was just looking at this Heidi Swapp Dex taking up space on my desk thinking “I need to get rid of that empty thing if I’m not gonna use it!” This will be a fun little way to work on memory verses, as well as pray for others I’ve connected with in Swap-bot land!

Thank you for coordinating the swap!

Is this sending one a month or all at once?

redeemed 02/29/2020 #

Hi! I am so happy that people signed up. I tried this in a group setting a few months ago only one person joined!! I love trying new things

Imacraftygirl-this will run monthly. I participate in an upcycled postcard swap each month & i thought it could be fun as a faithdex thing! I love Bible Journaling & i am always looking for ways to get others to join in.

Okay, i apologize if anyone misunderstood that this swap has more than one partner. I wish there was an "as many as will join" option when creating the swaps. The description was very lengthy, but some may not know what memory dex cards or faith dex cards are. The next description is shorter

Just the make certain I am doing this correctly, since it’s the first swap in the series we are sending each partner a memory dex card with OUR name on it, correct? I imagine this is like a “tickler” for us to pray for each other, yah!?

Sorry- If there are notifications for "comments", I am not receiving them. Coomiemomster78: Q1) yes we are sending a card with our given name & our new name. And a note telling why we feel GOD has given us this name. Q2)yes, a tickler to place a name in front of us to pray for. Q3)Not everyone has a memory dex system, so I do not think they know to punch the holes. I would feel like it is personal preference. From now on, I will include in the swap that you can indicate in the comments if you would like your "dex" punched or not.

Heyy guys!! I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for being for graceFul with the swaps! This is a very chaotic season & someone may forget to rate quickly, or send something right away because they were focused on getting water or food or trying to figure out this remote school situation. So if no one else says Thank You, I am saying it
