Based on the story of Joshua leading the nation of Israel across the dry river bed of the Jordan, God instructed each leader of the twelve tribes to pick up a stone from the dry bed of the river and place it in the Promised Land to be a memorial. This was to remind them and the generations to follow of what God had done.
A Joshua Box is a modern day adaptation to the story. The box is a holding place for our "memorial stones," gathered every time God leads us through a test or trial that requires extra faith. These "stones" can be anything that represent a hardship that God has taken us through such as a picture, an article of clothing, or a Bible verse on a piece of paper. As we gather these "stones," it becomes increasingly easier to muster the faith necessary to trust God in the midst of future trials and tests. It also provides for future generations a testimony of God's faithfulness in our lives.
The Salazars use a family picture on the morning of baby dedication to remind them how far their marriage has come along.
