My favorite art prints to create are custom scripture prints! So many moms have a specific bible verse or scripture that they want to be incorporated into their baby's nursery. For them, these verses embody the prayers and dreams they have for their child. As I've talked them, it is so beautiful to hear them express their hearts for their babies.
I've also come across multiple forums where moms discuss nursery bible verses and women share their ideas. Today, I want to share with you scriptures that love for children's rooms and nurseries.
15 Bible Verses for Your Baby's Nursery
#1. 1 Samuel 1:27
