    • Hello Julie,
      I am so sorry that I didn’t get to this. I was just looking through because I had some recent questions and saw this. I hope you got a good answer. But just in case, I just recorded this on YouTube “Colossians 3:23 American Sign Language”….always remember that you want to fully translate the verse into its purest meaning and not do a word for word transliteration.

  1. Hi there, I’m wanting to present Colossians 3:3 to a group of women who speak Nepali. I wish to show them in sign… as it is really nice visual from my memory. But I’m not sure of the signs. Could you possibly create a video or point me to where I could find one? The women thank you, Sarah from

  2. I am teaching a community bible study class and we are using ASL to sign Exodus 3:14. Would you be able to help with that?

    • Hi Tiffany. I am happy to help. The interesting thing about ASL is there is no “to be” verbs. No “state of being” verbs (is, am, are, etc…) so I AM THAT I AM is definitely a challenge. Think about it as a concept of THIS is ME. There is no question, no specific description. It’s just ME. So…in the video, I try and go through that explanation. I hope it is helpful. Thanks for looking me up!

  3. Hi Joy! Thank you for the Bible verses! I teach Sunday School and am using ASL to teach memory verses. Could you please post a video of Isaiah 9:6? I would love to teach my students this verse during the month of November! Thank you!

    • I will try and do this tomorrow. “Government on his shoulders”….I looked up many different translations for that today and in essence, it means “run the world” or “care for the world”….I think. (LOL) It’s hard sometimes to really get to the meaning. Will post tomorrow.

  4. I am trying to learn Philippians 1:27 for a leadership convention that our church is involved in. Can you help?

      • I WATCHED YHAY VIDEO, Ms. JOY! THAT’D GONNA BE ME ONE DAY IN SILENT PRAISE! Our church is VERY inclusive! We have blind parishioners, representative citizens from 19 countries (each country flag hangs on the wall of St. James! So, if you’ve never ‘traveled’, St. James will get ya there with the help of those who worship with us AND representing their country. Most times, these sweet souls are in native dress!

    • It is helpful to say what the verse is, to try and establish context. I am not sure if you are referring to Psalm 104:30? I will go on that.

  5. I REALLY need your help! I was in an ASL101 class but the virus scraped school. I have been given the privilege of signing a particular response during Mass this Pentecost Sunday. (3 days from now) It’s a short response but I want to present it correctly. Apparently, there will be QUITE a few deaf folks that’s gonna be there’ and I don’t want my efforts to disrespect because of my lack of fluency. ASL classes returns next month so that I can get back on track but in the mean time, I need your help, meow! <= I can at least sign 'meow '.

  6. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…YOU GOT BACK TO ME QUICKLY! THANK YOU! . . . .btw, I can sign ”thank you”, bless my heart! The service will be streamed so if you go to St. James (Midtown) here in Kansas city, Missouri. at the 10:00am service. I am to sign this response 6 times (after every participant signs theirs in their mother tongue.) So, there’ll be Somali, Arabic, Ibo, Tagalog, South Pacific, German, Chinese, French, English, Scot -Gaelic, Spanish and ASL. Can I GET an ‘a-MAN’ for all of us who will be Pentecost Proclaimers at St. James this coming Sunday?!?!.. and all the believers say ”YAAAAAA HOO!” i’ll come back and letcha know how everything went, Ms. Joy!. . . . . . .Sharon .and, fyi? I’ll be tha chick in a red dress, denim jacket and a REALLY nice natural tan;

  7. I’m sorry, Ms. Joy! the whole sentence is ”lord, send out Your Spirit and renew the face of the earth.”. . . . . again, Sharon Wallace apologizes!

  8. James : 3 : 6 – And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.

    Psalm : 34 : 13 – Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.

  9. Is there somewhere I can print bible verses in sign language so that I can have handouts for my students to take home?

  10. Thank you for ASL video with Bible verse. I cannot find video for Psalm 6: 1-5 Can anyone use ASL ? Thank you. I would appreciate this.
