hello!

Hello, friend! So happy to have you here. I’m Emily Hope, and my favorite pastime is creating art inspired by the timeless words of Scripture. I’m thrilled to host a little Etsy shop, along with an ever-growing page of free printables. And when you sign up for Hope Ink news, I’ll send you 2 more instant downloads of scripture art to brighten your day. (Also, if you’re looking for our biblical counseling ministry, you can visit Hope For Life.) My prayer in all of it is that you would be richly blessed through His Word because, truly, everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have HOPE. {Romans 15:4}   ♥ emily hope

Thanksgiving! Let’s Color!

scripture art print thanksgiving rainbowThanksgiving is coming, Thanksgiving is coming!

Are you looking forward to a time to rest and reflect and just be. thankful.
For everything He’s blessed us with?

I know how easy it is to get caught up in the busy-ness (nay, full-on stress –or is that just me?) of preparing for a holiday. Thinking everything has to be just-so. Worrying about the million and one urgent items that seem to pile up on the to-do list.

And even skipping over the thankfulness and contentment part and moving straight on to strategizing for the next -bigger- holiday where we all must buy more things. Jumping right back into the whirlwind of crazy (or never leaving in the first place).

So, here’s the cure. Ready?

Come before Him. With true thanks-giving.
Bow down in worship.
Kneel.
Before the Lord. Your Maker.

Because He’s the great King.
He owns the earth, the sea, every single mountain peak.

We’re His sheep. His flock.

And don’t miss those last little three words …
“under His care.”

Be content in that. Give thanks that He is the great God above every crazy thing.
And you are in HIS care.

So, so much to be thankful for.

PS: I got downright teary illustrating this Scripture -thinking about how amazing He is and how loved we are, as His children. I would love for you to take some time with your kiddos (or just you) reflecting on these words as you color one for yourself.

Then print one -or ten- and remember how great He is. And how loved you are.

So many things to be grateful for. Unexpected surprises, friends who check up on you out of the blue, sunshine and rain, cooler weather, growing (like weeds) kids, and snippets of time to do what you love. To taste and see that the Lord is good. So good. May we be truly thankful for all the big and small things He blesses us with every single day.

Would love to see any of my local friends who can make it (and I even have a coupon for you to get in free!).

grace + truth

grace and truth

The Word became flesh
and made His dwelling among us.
We have seen His glory,
the glory of the one and only Son,
who came from the Father,
full of grace and truth.

john 1.14

 

dabbling in watercolors
on a restful weekend.
reflecting on Jesus being full of grace.
and truth.

praying for more of both to overflow
in my heart and life.

An Auction And A Sale + Ending Today

 

 

Just For Thursday, July 31st

Okay, friends, I have a couple of fun things to share with you, just for today …

First up is a huge online auction happening today over on Instagram (you don’t even have to leave your house – yay!) to help support a dear family, the Gilmores. Ericlee and Dorina are local friends of ours who have devoted their lives to serving with Christian Friendship Ministries and the Haitian Bead Project in Haiti. Ericlee just found out that he has Stage IV Melanoma, so as you can imagine, the family is very much in need of our prayers and support. Chelsea is hosting today’s fundraising auction and I’m serious when I say there is a TON of goodies (including a matted Hope Ink print) – so don’t miss this chance to help a sweet family in need!

Also, today is the very last day of the big Christmas in July sale over at the Hope Ink Shop – Take 25% off everything – Cards, prints, canvases. It’s all on sale. Just use coupon code JULYCHEER when you check out for 25% off your entire order!
Ends at midnight tonight :) And then it’s Friday – happy weekend to us all!
