A New Photo Challenge

For a while now I've felt a strong need, perhaps an urgency, to stop quietly giving glory to God and to start shouting glory to Him!

I've been praying for a way to do this. And one day I heard a whisper: "Katie, why not make a weekly spiritual photo challenge?"


Not a bad idea! Awesome work God - thanks!

So, Scripture & a Snapshot was born!

I'd love if you would join me in shouting to the masses about God's grace, mercy and love!!!

You never know who's heart you will touch and who's life can be changed from that!


Here's how to participate:

1. Select a scripture.
My hope is that each week you will search your Bible and select a verse that has meaning for you.
Here's a link to a good Bible verse search engine.

2. Add a photo to it.
I hope that you will chose a photo that goes with your chosen scripture, and not just throw these two elements together. The photo can be from your archives or a new shot. Please only use your own photos. You can have the scripture on your photo, below it, make a collage - however you want, as long as the two elements are together!

3. Put the Scripture & a Snapshot button in your post.You won't be deleted or banned if you don't. It just helps spread the word...and the Word. ;) 
It also helps visitors from the blog hop quickly identify your Scripture & a Snapshot post.

4. Come back here and link up your post. 
Please link directly to your Scripture & A Snapshot post, not the home page of your blog.

I hope to see you next Sunday!
If you're unsure of whether or not you want to participate...I just ask that you'll come by to visit.


  1. So looking forward to this!!!! I just hope I remember! EEK

  2. Awesome!! I can't wait. Great button you made for it also.

  3. This sounds like a great photo challenge and just what I need right now. Will definitely work this in!

  4. I think this is a wonderful idea! Scripture and capturing God's Creation go hand in hand. :)

  5. OOOH, I like this. I will try and participate. Thanks.

  6. Love it.. I will be there.. Thanks for telling me! I actually do that quite often.. so fun to have a fun place to connect with others...

  7. Such a wonderful way to worship God. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone does on Sunday! Also, I'm your newest follower.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog too. It made me giggle.

  8. This will be great. Can it be art work and scripture? or does it have to be a picture you shot and scripture?

  9. Liz - I'm not going to be too particular or strict with this challenge! Artwork is welcome...technically it'll still be a photo! ;) The only thing I'm requiring is that the photo or artwork is your own or that you have permission from the original owner to use it.

  10. Hi Katie no worries all photos or" art work" will be by me. Can`t wait to join in.

  11. I rarely get around to blogging on Sundays! Heck..I've been a horrible blogger lately. But this would be something that would be simple enough to do!! Thanks for the invite!
