About the Bible verse...

I've been asked about the Bible verse on the back of my note cards a lot lately. Just this week I had several inquiries about removing the verse for orders so I thought I would post about it today. I started PaperDoll Designs a little over 7 years ago. Shortly after making my first few sales I attended a Purpose Driven Life seminar. Acts 20:24 really stood out to me while I was reading that book and attending the seminar. I decided right then that I would add the verse to the backs of all the folded note cards. I understand that not everyone worships my God and that even some who do choose to keep it to themselves. I don't judge you if you have asked me to leave it off. However, I love what that verse stands for and I want to live my life according to it. I fail everyday but I love to see it everytime I am packaging up cards and I hope that it is read by the people who receive PaperDoll cards. I've lost several sales because I wouldn't remove it and I've even had to refund money because customers were surprised to see it but I just can't seem to bring myself to take it off for anyone. So whether it's a good business decision or not, the verse remains...

  3. I am so proud when I give PG gifts because that verse in on the back of the cards! It shows that I support a Christian mom & business woman and serves as a way I can witness to others. Never apologize or compromise.

  6. You go girl. What a witness! You are such a blessing. Who knows what God will do with that verse for someone, sometime or with your witness to keep it. I love paperdoll products, but that verse is more beautiful than anything man can make. Dindy

  7. When you live your faith, it becomes part of everything you do. Don't hide your light under a bushel...if that is where you want that quote than that is where it should be. Faith was part of your journey to start Paperdoll and to share your creativity...and so many of us are inspired by you and the quote on the back of your cards:)
