The Elements of the Armor of God


August is truckin' right along and we're well on our journey through the Armor of God.


Once you've done a page on the Armor of God passage from Ephesians 6, you may want to explore each element a little further.



Mary Jo designed some templates for us to dive in to the Armor of God, harvesting scriptures from other areas of the Bible.

I printed mine out on different colors of card stock, then added embellishments of stickers and washi tape. I used color pencils and other times I shaded with gelato pastels.

Mary Jo put a modern spin on the "sandals fitted with the gospel of peace." Check out her stylish template!

We've explored the topic of FAITH before, so you can access that series for ideas re: how to complete your Shield of Faith page.

It's almost football season in which teams engage in ongoing battle between the offensive and defensive sides, much like the spiritual warfare going on around us. Mary Jo put a fun spin on the "helmet" of salvation!


As you ARMOR UP, it's a great time to use some metallic pens!

You're welcome to watch this replay of a recent BQ chat to hear the discussion of how others in the community may use this 8-piece template set:



Alrighty, friends.... ready to dive in to each of these elements??




The set also includes a summary BQ template (pictured below) and a Shield template, which was shown at the beginning of this post.

This is a wonderful topic to invite kids/grandkids to Bible Quilt along with you!

Let's wrap our students up in the Armor of God for this school year, personalizing BQ pages and praying over their ventures back into the school environment.
