I'm a self-taught watercolor artist committed to changing the world one scripture mug at a time. Especially as a stay-at-home-mom, having my favorite verse, my favorite coffee, and some daily time alone with Jesus is crucial to keeping me sane. I love encouraging people to pursue deeper a relationship with Jesus through my writing and watercolor.
What to expect
I love to try to keep things simple and "back to basics." I hope that you find this site, blog, and products refreshing, encouraging, and calming.
Bible study time with Jesus is a very personal thing, so let me know of any scripture or product you'd like to see on our site. I'll see what I can do!
The devotionals and prayers are part of my own bible study adventures. I'm not an expert, though, so if you have any helpful constructive feedback, let me know!
Statement of faith
Jesus is Lord!
At My Scripture Mug, we believe Jesus is the Son of God and the only way to salvation. He died for our sins, rose again, and is coming back for us!
Inerrant Word of God
All of scripture is God-breathed and applicable for us today. All of scripture points to Christ as the only way to salvation. Nothing should added or taken away from it. At my Scripture Mug blog, we may sometimes dive deeper into the original Hebrew or other language meaning, word, history, or context of the Scripture because while the original Word was inspired by the Holy Spirit, sadly translators are not. We are all just doing our best as translating across languages and cultures is an extremely complex and difficult task. It is worth taking a closer look at some of the original words. For example, an often-used word for love, "chesed," does not have any English equivalent.
We serve YHVH, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
It bugs me when people say things like, "I don't believe in god" or "I can't understand why people think any gods exists out there." I'm not interested in proving whether or not Ashera or Baal or whoever exists or not. Frankly, I couldn't care less. But if you ask me about MY God, I will answer specifically: He is God above All Gods, Creator of all Things, the God Israel. His name is YHVH and Yeshua is His Son. THAT I will defend... to the death if need be.
