If you’ve read many of Isabella’s stories, you’ve probably noticed how often she wrote about a character’s life being changed by a Bible verse written on a little card.
Often, one character would give the card to another for encouragement or to serve as a reminder of God’s love and promises to protect and guide those who follow Him.
More often than not, those “little bits of cardboard” had a big impact on characters who faced challenges or were going through difficult times.
In real life, Isabella also handed out small cards on which she wrote a meaningful Bible verse chosen especially for the recipient. Here’s one of her handwritten cards:
You can follow Isabella’s example! We’re giving away sets of “little cards” to four U.S. readers of Isabella’s blog!
Each card set holds 30 cards. On the front is a beautifully illustrated Bible verse of promise, much like the ones Teenie Burnside might have created in Isabella’s short story “The Little Card.”
The back of each card is blank, so you can add your own personalized message of love or encouragement for the recipient, just as Isabella did.
To enter the drawing, just leave a comment below no later than midnight (EDT) on Sunday, May 24. (Unfortunately, we can only mail card sets to readers who live in the United States.)
We’ll announce the four winners on Tuesday, May 25. Good luck!

A new month brings a new Free Read!
Isabella’s novella The Little Card was first published in 1891 as a serial in The Pansy magazine.
Miss Teenie Burnside’s health may cause her to stay at home, but that doesn’t mean she can’t minister to others. In fact, when she uses her talents to draw and letter some little cards—each with one of the Bible’s Golden Texts—she hopes her cards will encourage others to read God’s Word. Little does Teenie know just how many people her little cards will reach, or what impact they will have on the lives of strangers in need.
