... as for me and my house

Two wonderful days ago, I finally received the much awaited Urban Soul box that would bring me joy upon opening...

This is the box I've been waiting for! (Thank you leasing office for signing for my fed-ex package and then failing to let me know! grrr)

This is me opening the box, can you tell I'm excited?

See, here's the thing. As a homemaker I absolutely, positively love decking out our home in the Word of God. When I read "A Christian Woman's Guide to Hospitality," Quinn Sherrer made a point to exhort godly wives and mothers to decorate their homes with Scripture and other home-decor that will glorify Christ. Honestly, I listened and I definitely wanted to incorporate it...

But I really didn't want my home to look like Grandma's. I love Grandma's house, I appreciate it, but I just don't want that to be my home. Lucky for me, Dayspring has an assortment of amazingly cute home decor and other such items that bring glory to Jesus and look amazing in our home!

To top it all off, this month's theme is one that resonates within my heart. "As for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord." (Josh. 24:15 ) I declare that Scripture prophetically over my home, my husband and my children daily, trusting that His goodness will reach every family member around me.

So, I get the best of both worlds with my new "My Beloved 5x7 Frame!" =) I absolutely love love love the product and can say I will be doing my home-decor shopping from Dayspring from now on. I must say I am very pleased and I cannot wait to fill my frame with a picture of my beloved (our pictures are being printed sometime tonight!)

This is my "I'm-so-happy-I-get-a-Song-of-Solomon-frame-to-hang-up-in-my-house face" =)

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the best part. Dayspring has oh so graciously given me the opportunity to share the love.

  2. I would love to buy the his & her collection items from Dayspring. It will help encourage me to encourage my spouse!

  3. I love the "As for me and my house" frame. I already follow you & we're friends on FB. I'm sharing this on FB NOW! :)

  4. I think I'd get the He Is My Strength Silver Cross. I'm already following you and I'm already your friend on Facebook =P. Will post a link here now =)

  5. Thank you all for signing up for this giveaway! If you already have me on Facebook, go ahead and leave another comment as an entry. =) Dixie and Gen, I saw you facebooked about this giveaway and you get an extra entry for that... Leave a comment for it! =)

  6. I would get the one that says "His eye is on the sparrow and I know He loves me" because it reminds me of my favorite passage scripture Luke 12:22-34. It is a good reminder for me not to worry because the Father provides even for the sparrow, why wouldn't He provide for me? -Catherine Growick

  7. I would probably get the "Where you go, I will go" set to put in our room. That passage was part of our wedding vows. <3

  8. I'm friends with you on facebook. :)
