"It came from Him, not me." This is how it happened...

"The Lord inspired me in 1999 one evening at a church choir event. As I sat in the back row listening to the awesome Christian music in the dark, an incredible urge to draw came over me. Being an art teacher for 10 years, I had experienced this feeling before, but NEVER had it been so intense. I just “happened” to have a pen in my pocket, but the only paper around was the program that I got as I walked in the door. In the empty space of the margins, I sketched like crazy. I felt like I would pop if I didn’t get the ideas out of my brain right then! I will never forget that feeling. I had never felt so peaceful yet energized at the same time. God was just getting started with me! Over the course of the next 9 months, we created this alphabet.

Each letter has educational and deep meaning to me. In each letter, you will find ancient and modern images used in the past 2000 years to express the Christian Faith. I have hopes of sharing all of the basic aspects of Christianity with those who really look into “The Christian Alphabet”. (There is a word in each letter and many symbols that you might find if you take the time to focus on them.)

Special thanks goes to my husband, Albert, my mother, Elaine, and my sisters, Tammy and Jenn, for their help and encouragement; however; Jesus Christ is my true inspiration. Without Him, I could not have created ”The Christian Alphabet” as my form of sharing the Gospel with you.”
- Tracy Sands

The Christian Alphabet has come a long way since that inspiring night in 1999. In 2011, Tracy partnered with her long-time friend Matthew Hilger to help bring her artwork to market and realize a long-time goal - The Christian Alphabet Book. In 2012, with help from Matthew, we published The Christian Alphabet Book, winner of the Small Christian Publisher Book of the Year Award. And now we have made The Christian Alphabet more available than it's ever been through the Etsy shop.

Did you know?

- If you look closely, you’ll see that every letter of the alphabet has a word associated with it that is part of its design. A is for Always, Z is for Zion, etc.
- There is also a Bible verse associated with each letter.
- There are close to 100 ancient and modern Christian symbols used within the alphabet.
- “G” represents creation and symbolizes God, “O” is the crown of thorns symbolizing Jesus, and “D” is the dove symbolizing the Holy Spirit. Together, GOD represents the Most Holy Trinity!
- The artwork was originally hand drawn and completed before transferring it to digital images.
- The Christian Alphabet was sold originally for many years in only a black and white version.
- The Christian Alphabet was originally marketed for first names and now includes last names such as “The Smiths” or simply “Smith” for family or wedding prints or as gifts for teachers, “Mrs. Smith”.
- To help the little ones learn the Christian ABC's, we have a professionally recorded song, The Christian Alphabet Song.
- The Christian Alphabet Book was published in 2012. We like to call it a family book for ages 4-104.
- In 2013, it won the Christian Small Publisher Book of the Year award (children's category).

Thanks for you interest in The Christian Alphabet!

Love from above,

Frequently asked questions
Do you personalize the artwork?

Yes! That's our specialty. Please let us know the NAME you want in the artwork in the personalization box or note to seller box. We can also add Date, Occasion and other special information. We ask for that in the personalization or note to seller box.

Sizing details

The professionally matted, ready-to-frame gifts should fit most, standard 10x20 frames. We do not guarantee that they will fit every retail frame.

If you choose a framed listing, the frame is 10 inches by 20 inches.

The mat opening is 6 7/8 inches by 16 7/8 inches.

How long will it take to get the personalized gift?

Most orders will arrive to you in about 1 week including shipping time. We usually process orders within 2-3 days of receipt and we use USPS Priority Mail - which is an additional 2-3 days, depending on distance.

Will my order arrive in time for the special day?

That depends - most orders will arrive in about 1 week from order receipt. We encourage customers to order earlier.

We have expedited shipping options which cost more and will help cut that time frame. We usually process orders within 2-3 days of receipt. The rest of the time is dependent on the shipping option you choose and the USPS. We will automatically ship USPS Priority Mail - which is 2-3 days, depending on distance.

Why do you ask for Gender, Hair & Skin colors?

Not all names are obviously male or female - so identifying gender helps us with the letters/colors we choose - especially if there is an "A" in the name.
Our "praying A" is a human figure. So, we have developed the artwork to try to "match", as best we can, the graphics to your specific gift recipient - so we have different hair colors (light, dark, etc.) and different skin tones (light, dark, African-american, etc.) to make the artwork even more personalized.

Can I use my own Bible Verse?

Yes! You will need to include that, typed out EXACTLY as you want it to appear, in the personalization or note to seller box. Or you can contact us via Etsy conversations. We encourage you to do that as soon as you order, so that we can know about the request. We try to process orders ASAP - so, if you don't let us know ASAP or IN THE ORDER, then we could miss your request.
