Need a Personalized Christian Gift? Check Out Our Books of Truth
How This Book of Bible Verses and Truths Came About
Of all our handmade Christian gifts, I must admit that our Book of Truth is my favorite. Probably because it all started one Christmas season. Well, truthfully, two days before Christmas; I decided that I wanted to make something special and handcrafted for my daughters.
They were pre-teens at the time, and I envisioned a book full of some wisdom I wanted to share with them. After hours sifting through my paper stash – I exaggerate just a little here, but not much – I found just the right paper for each girl and got started creating. I filled their books with some Bible verses, Christian quotes and poems and finished them about 2 AM on Christmas Eve. (This is how I love to spend the wee hours of Christmas morning. Really!)
I count it a win that one out of two girls were able to quickly send me a picture of their book almost 10 years later. Jessica has moved 4 times in the last 4 years, so I am especially impressed. My other girl, Katey, is a college senior, so she gets lots of grace as she currently has other things on her mind. (I know it’s still in her possession because I’ve seen it in the last 12 months.)
These Books of Truth have evolved throughout the years and now (because I’m aware of copyright laws), they include some of my own thoughts/text along with Bible verses from the English Standard Version (permission requested and granted by Crossway).
How We Make our Books of Truth
We start with a chipboard base and then adhere high-quality digital prints to the base. We bind it all together using wire binding. Each book is made by hand – one at a time – with much care and craftsmanship. If you choose to add a name to the cover, we laser-engrave and cut a special material to create the nameplate.
At one time, we only had a personalized version. However, I’ve had more than one momma or grandma want to purchase a book to keep on a nightstand and read to more than one child, and they didn’t want to purchase a book for each one.
With that in mind, I changed the design a bit to allow for a book to be shared among siblings. But, I must say, I truly love the fact that most of our products are personalized, and eventually, those siblings might find themselves in a different location and no longer able to share a truth-filled book.
All the Details: Bible Verses and Text + Styles Available
We currently offer this product in seven different styles. It is my hope this year to add at least two more designs. Here’s a sampling of the styles available. You can view all of them here.
Each Book of Truth features seven 2-page spreads that include either Bible verses or well-known prayers. Here is a list of each topic and a few examples of the truths shared in the book:

The first section, Some Truth about GOD, includes 10 truths about God along with a corresponding Bible verse. Here are some examples of the truths in this section of this personalized Christian book:

Next, is some truth about FAITH; this 2-page spread features 10 Bible verses about faith.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. – Hebrews 11:1
