This is a line from one of my favorite songs of all time. The song, Princes and Frogs by Superchick reminds girls to wait for their prince. The sign reads, "All princes start as frogs and all gentlemen as dogs -Just wait till it's plain to see - What they're growing up to be - Cause some frogs will still be frogs - And some dogs will still be dogs - Some boys could become men - Just don't kiss them till then." Love that message! This sign would be a great gift for a teenage girl!

As I got older, I loved to find a verse in the Bible that really spoke to me and tape it somewhere visible. I had them on my dresser, mirrors, car, you name it; and these verses really ministered to me in so many situations.
My kids will complain about a chore, and then look at that verse and feel the conviction of God - and I didn't say a word. Way cool! It really helps them to hide these important verses in their hearts, too.
Finally, I started making signs for other people. God would place a verse on my heart for someone going through a challenging time, and I would write it on a sign for them. It is a great way to share the love of Christ with others. But more than that the sign becomes a constant reminder of your values as a family and a ministry to others who come into your home as well!
So that's how I became a sign maker - and where the name Write Them on Your Doorposts came from!
