needing scripture & my first giveaway!

alright, i know i was supposed to start my giveaway yesterday, but honestly, yesterday we had a family emergency that required me to be away from my computer & focus on my daughter & my marriage. so, i am sorry. but i am thankful. thankful that the LORD has brought us through this, & thankful that today is a new day, a sweet gift from Jesus. something that i needed yesterday was to be surrounded by his word. i so quickly forget the promises of the Bible during times of hardship. i have learned that i need to be filling my mind with prayers & scripture to get me through, to remind me of the promises of God. i seriously think my house is just going to be filled with cute little art prints reminding me of his goodness, his promises, & his love & grace. i have learned i need the scripture in my face. especially since becoming a mama, i need it somewhere where i can see it, where i can not get away from it. that's a reason why this giveaway means a lot to me.  so, are you ready to find out what it is?! 

here is  a little back story. jessi & i have never talked face to face, even though we have a ton of mutual friends. jessi & her family used to go to our church here in seattle & have recently moved to the south to be church planters. i so wish i would have met this sweet woman before she left, but i am so thankful that i get to know her now & so thankful that i can read all about her heart. i have been reading her blog for a long time, & i think you should too! she opened this amazing etsy shop & i so excited to be able to feature her as my first giveaway! 


go here!

so as i said, jessi, from naptime diaries, opened an etsy shop where she sells amazing art prints with scripture & encouraging words that are pretty to look at making it so much more lovely to hang scripture in your home. {see why i think this is so awesome?!} here are a few that i love::
