Personalizing God’s Promises
Radio Hostess: Renee Swope

I wanted to give my husband a gift, but couldn’t decide what to buy! Hi, I’m Renee Swope with Proverbs Ministries.

My friend LeAnn gives great gifts. My favorite is when she finds verses in the Bible to personalize for someone.

I decided that’s what I’d do for my husband. I found promises in the Bible that would mean a lot to JJ. And put his name in each verse. Then I printed them individually and put them in a masculine keepsake box. One day he’ll read -

Jeremiah 29:11, “JJ, I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Another day he’ll read Psalm 16:11, “JJ, I will make known to you the path of life. I will fill you with joy in My presence.”

So, does someone you know needs the gift of God’s promises personalized for them? For more ideas, visit

Renee...That's amazing...only yesterday I sent one of my granddaughter's a note with the same personalised scripture.
Jeremiah 29:11.
I have always loved to personalise scripture, and try to read it that way always.
Thank you for Proverbs 31 Ministry...I live in Australia and enjoy popping in daily to see what you and the other ladies have to share.
