One of our birthday gifts to Elijah was a scrapbook filled with letters written by male family members and friends. I asked these men to write letters to Elijah that will encourage him as he grows in wisdom and stature and in his relationship with the Lord. I wanted Eli to know that he has men in his life that care enough to come alongside him to guide him and offer their experiences and wisdom.
I placed the letters very simply in a scrapbook, some in pockets, some folded, some open, using only black and cream, and embellishing with staples and brads.
Elijah was very touched by the letters and I hope this scrapbook will encourage him throughout his teen years.
