My Favorite Things *Giveaway!*

|by | Uncategorized

I am so grateful for this community of blog readers! You all encourage me, bless me, and humble me just by reading, not to mention the comments and emails I’ve received over the past year.

So, in an effort to say… “thank you!” I’ve put together a fun giveaway of a few things that I feel represent me.

I figured, if I love these things, maybe my readers will love them too! I hope you do! Please take a minute to enter the giveaway below and know that YOU ARE APPRECIATED.

option 3

 

Although this giveaway is not sponsored, I chose products by DaySpring because I love their store! Everything they do is just beautiful, and more importantly, it resonates with God’s eternal truths. That matters to me.

Jesus CallingThis is probably my favorite devotional. It takes me to a deep place of meeting with God in just a few sentences. I can’t think of anything in my day I value more than intimate time of devotion with God. You will be blessed by this… guaranteed.

*True story: I was introduced to this devotion through an amazing mom’s group at church. We all grew spiritual through a special season of reading this devotion and then coming together to share weekly.

Coffee Mug –Coffee is the second most valued part of my day. Okay, so maybe my husband, kids and friends are second, but coffee is a close third! 🙂 I particularly love the shape and look of this mug. I hope you will too.

*True story: my husband despises coffee. Wa-wa.

JournalI have always been a journaler. This helps me think and process. Writing is a big part of how I connect with God. You should try it! I love the colors of this journal and the bits of scripture at the bottom of each page. That makes me happy.

*True story: I started journaling my time with God when I was 15 years old and have never stopped! I’ve kept each of the journals I’ve filled. Those are now such a special chronicle of my journey!

NecklaceI’m including this necklace because… I just really like it! It fits my style, and I love the message behind its design (Isaiah 60:20 is inscribed on the back). What a message of hope and sustenance! Since I’m not at a place to spend $50 on myself, I’ll spend it on you instead!

*True story: I used to have a cheap version of a similar necklace. I think I paid $1.50 for it, and it was not nearly so pretty. I wore it a lot… until it broke and got lost. I still miss that necklace, so this part of the giveaway is really more of a tribute.

Altogether, this giveaway is worth over $100! Woohoo! Enter below!

    My favorites include reading (!!!), my sweet hubby and our darling daughter, our 16 yr old calico kitty, my fellow mom friends, the colors aqua, teal, turquoise, indigo and many other shades of blue…I also love many kinds of music, real hugs, big laughter, babies and kids of all ages, elderly people, teaching, learning, cooking, eating, drinking water from our wonderful Berkey water filter…I could go on and on. One of the most special things that happened to me this month was that Jesus answered our prayers and those of many other faithful friends and family when He healed me from Lyme disease after only a year and a half of treatment (all herbal and no antibiotics!!). Praise Him – He is awesome!

    Currently time with our almost 1 year old before the new baby comes in February, First 5 app that wakes me up and has a short devotional, hot tea, the last days of swimming, and as much as I complain at times the crazy Missouri weather where it’s cool one day and hot the next.
