Bible SCRIPTURES for a New Home
These bible verses about home can be used for a house blessing for new construction, or used to decorate your home with scripture.
Several weeks ago, we decided to have a little family house dedication on our new home under construction by writing verses that held meaning and hope for our family. A new home blessing, if you will.
I originally got the idea from a young adult Christian book series I read and loved when I was younger – the Glenbrooke series by Robin Jones Gunn, and this per
In the book Wildflowers, the main character is fulfilling her dream of opening a business, and invited all of her friends to the property before renovations for a blessing party.
They prayed, sang worship songs and wrote scripture right on the walls, studs, and sub-flooring.
I absolutely loved the idea that the blessings they wrote and prayed for would forever be etched in their memories.
I knew that if I ever built or renovated a home – I wanted to do something similar.
I love the idea that as we walk through the finished rooms of our home in just a few months, we’ll remember the verses written on the foundation of each room we enter.
And, maybe someday many, many years from now, a different family might have occasion to see the blessings written by us under the carpet or on the wall studs.

Bible verses for kids room:
My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you. Bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man. Proverbs 3:14
Strength and dignity are her clothing and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. Proverbs 21:25-26
I also turned this scripture into Proverbs 31 wall art that she can see every day.
The Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-25
Kid’s bathroom: It is not fancy hair, gold jewelry or fine clothes that should make you beautiful. No, your beauty should come from within you – the beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit. This beauty will never disappear and is worth much more to God. 1 Peter 3:3-4
Decorating Your Home with Truth
You don’t have to be building a new house to apply this concept to your home. You can write verses during a renovation, or on the walls before you re-paint, or on the floors when you replace carpet or flooring. Or, of course, add scripture out where everyone can see it in your home. Here is some inspiration:
I love Proverbs 31 art for a girl’s room:
Or a simple, but impactful banner for a boy’s bedroom, encouraging him to Seek First His Kingdom.
I also really like the idea of hanging a chalkboard where you can update your verses weekly so they don’t start to fade into the scenery, like decor that hangs year-round (see my DIY upcycled chalkboard here).
