Hidden Treasure Cedar Keepsake Box

Look what was waiting for me when I got home!!!! 
You're going to LOVE this!!!

It starts out as a gorgeous cedar box, but it just keeps getting better and better with each discovery! 

... A perfect fit for a study Bible.

... Wait... what's that little oval... ?
Why don't I just try to take that off...

Oh, my goodness...
... How about if I just put it down on the bottom of the box...

... GASP!!... It sticks...
and... GASP again!!

The bottom lifts out! 

Big GASP!!

... Treasures.... hidden in a secret compartment!  
Each charm represents a scripture from the Bible.
BUT WAIT!! There's more!!!

There's a tiny little glass bead at the top of the oval... 
When you hold it up to a light and look through it...
This time... a long SIGH...

How do they get the whole Lord's Prayer to fit inside there?!

Besides being beautifully designed and crafted, the treasures hidden within hold the truth of salvation.  The creator of the Hidden Treasure Cedar Keepsake Box tells her inspiration for her design.
  • When I was very young, my grandfather gave me a cedar chest that he had-crafted.  It had secret compartments, and each compartment held a treasure that shared his faith in Jesus and pointed me to Him.  May this be a blessing to you and bring glory to Jesus.
You see...
I know him, her grandfather... 
He's my dad.

Before he made those special little cedar chests for her and for her cousins, he made a big one for me and for my sisters.
Yes, it does have secret compartments.

Yes, it does hold some precious items.
