The Plans I Have For You Devotional Set And Giveaway!


As a believer in the Christian Faith, I believe it is very important to instill in my children the word of God.
With so much chaos going on in this world,  I know my family and I can find hope and refuge in reading God's word.
This is what makes us strong, hopeful, pretty much a blue print for our lives that can answer some of life's toughest questions.
Well, today's post is about the new devotional called The Plans I Have For You and the journal by the same title that refers to the bible scripture in the book of Jeremiah 29:11.

About The Plans I Have For You Devotional
The devotional is an illustrated 90-day devotional written by bestselling children's book author Amy Parker and illustrated by Vanessa Brantley-Newton, teaching and inspiring kids to dream about their future, to focus on faith, love, and joy, and recognize that God has a plan and purpose for each and every one of us.  

Hardcover; 160 pages
Age Range: 8-12 years

My 10 yr old baby girl loves it!

Let's Take a peek inside, shall we?

About The Plans I Have For You Journal:
The journal prompts creative thinking and exploration of the talents and personalities that make us special, and then helps explore how God may use our unique traits to spread love and joy and make the world a better place. 

Stationery; 208 pages 
Age Range: 11-14 years 

I found these to be great books for my children, they are easy to read and understand. And although the writing journal are for ages 11-14 my 10 yr old daughter was able to understand it and the devotional is beautifully illustrated and beautifully written with the word of God.

Here are the wonderful ladies behind these great books...

About illustrator Vanessa Brantley-Newton:

The New Loved + Blessed Box: Encouragement Awaits You

Press Sample: Product given by the Company for testing and reviewing purposes.

Encouragement plays an important part in our lives when we feel down or like giving up. 
It's like a spiritual engertic booster that can help you reach your goals and make you feel good about your self and drives the motivation you need to live a happy and healthier life.

I find my encouragement in God, my family and friends which makes me feel loved and blessed.

Well, today's post is all about being encouraged and loved and blessed with this new 10 dollar a month subscription box.
There are so many subscrition boxes out there food boxes, jewelry boxes ect and my fav the makeup boxes.

But, the Loved and Blessed sub box is like no other it gives you a makeover on the inside so you can reflect it on the outside. 
It is filled with spiritual encouragement ranging from mini scripture cards, to posters, little trinkets and even jewelry and every $10 a month is a sweet spiritual blessing. 
When you sub to Loved and Blessed, Out of those 10 dollars a portion gets donated to the Union Rescue Mission for The Homeless

 I was blessed to receive thier May box.

The packaging is a cute hot pink box with a personal label. Which I thought was genius and sweet. 
It read under the bar code "Encouragement Delivered"

Then when you open the box you see a beautiful encouraging note on Strength.

Even with that message alone I felt encouraged, Loved and Blessed.

Then you see white tissue paper with a post card describing the contents of the May box.

I love the scripture at the bottom of the card.
and finally I encounter all the goodies inside.

First, a mini poster that read as a reminder that broken crayons still color. So true!
Meaning even though we're hurting inside and feel weak and broken , we are still useful and valuable and we can still accomplish what we set out to do and fufil our purpose.
I love that!

The next item in the box was a little red card with the Loved and Blessed logo with little anchors meaning strength.

When the card is turned over, it reads:

When I saw this I was happy and giddy because I used the same scripture in a song I wrote years ago called Trials and Tears.

Ok, the next item was a sticker:

Another message of strength and encouragement to chew on and digest.

And for the final item, a wrap around bracelet with an anchor:

The bracelet comes with instructions and now I know why because it was tricky to put on. 
But finally, I got it on 3 different ways that made 3 different looks for it lol

The Loved and Blessed Box is sweet, personalized and very encouraging. 
And many may not gravitate to it because it is spiritually based but the message it conveys from the start is pure goodness, love, strength, peace and encouragement. 

So instead of makeup, give a different makeover a try. 
You will feel beautiful and refreshed from the inside out and feel loved and blessed by the word of God:) And you will help those in need at the same time.
