The Young man Art Card was created to celebrate a young man’s graduation, birthday, or new adventure, and to encourage him in the Lord. It is sold in the Portrait Collection or as a 4-Pack at Flower Girl Greetings.
My writings, The Charges of Paul to Timothy for All Soldiers and The Charges of Paul to Timothy For The Young are free PDFs that you can print and include in the Young man card for more good encouragement!
Other appropriate cards to use for young men are Steadfast (available in the Portrait Collection and as a 4-Pack) and Spirit of power (available in the Love Collection) found at Flower Girl Greetings.
(If you would like to give The Charges of Paul to a young lady (you'll see that you can put her name on the pages), appropriate cards to use would be Strength and dignity, Lifted hands, any card in the Florals 2 Collection, Maidens in the midst, You are Beloved from the Who You Are Collection, and many more. You may also print all the Lessons for Young Women found under the Scripture Studies category at Shale Fragments.)
The original artwork for the Young man card is a drawing of my brother when he was young. I drew it from life with soft lead. Some of my portraits are drawn from life and others are drawn from photographs. “From life” means that the person was sitting in from of me. In the 1970s I drew my brother often, as you can see in the drawings of him sleeping in the car on the way to a family vacation spot (at the end of this post)!
The words on the front of the Young man card are:
Let no one look down on you because you are young, but be an example of the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith and in purity.
1 Timothy 4:12
The words on the back of the card are:
From the charges of Paul to his son, Timothy...
Guard the treasure that has been entrusted to you through the Holy Spirit who dwells in us.
2 Timothy 1:14
Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
2 Timothy 2:1
The inside is blank so that you can use the card for many occasions.

Blessings and love in Him,
Welcome to Shale Fragments, a collection of writings and art for individual and group use!
Teaching God’s truth and the beauty of His Word is my greatest delight! My art card company, Flower Girl Greetings, was launched in 2012 with this purpose. In April 2020, ShaleFragments.com became the gathering place for the writings.
As I have studied the rich meanings of the original Greek and Hebrew languages of the Bible, I continue to see beautiful progressions and connections that compel me to organize and convey their life-changing beauty!
