Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11
This month I had fun playing with the January faith art box outside of the margins of my Bible. I decided to use the kit as inspiration for my entry in a traveling dori. This dori will have creations from many different people before it arrives to Dana! How fun it has been to spend time creating and praying for another follower of Christ! This is just one of many traveling doris I will be creating in this year. It’s a fun creative challenge to create something new and special for each one. I loved having the kit to use as inspiration!
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” 2 Corinthians 5:17
One thing I love to do with each of the doris is make them personal with the person’s name. This time I used some banner pieces I had on hand and added the alpha stickers from the kit. I love this color blue against the brown craft paper. Another thing I like to always include is a note or a prayer along with a verse. Since I had just read through the devotional that came with the kit, I chose a verse from there as inspiration. I then created a prayer pocket to put a personalized prayer in. I had fun using the cute border stamp to do some embossing on the pocket. It was the perfect size! I know I’ll be doing that again!
I think I used every element of this kit to create this entry in Dana’s traveling dori. From the stickers to the stamps to the devotional content; it was so fun to create in a new way! I would love to see how you’re creating with this month’s kit!

God Bless you in the new year!
