Love + Blessed Subscription Box Review and Giveaway!

Hi Everyone!

The wonderful people of FlyBy Promotions gave me the opportunity this month to review the Love + Blessed Subscription Box!

The Love + Blessed Subscription Box is a monthly subscription box that delivers encouraging and faithful messages each month.  The  monthly subscription box cost is $10.00 a month.  There are also prepay options on their website

Stay tuned for my review of the March 2016 subscription box:

This is what the outside of the box looks like.

This is what the subscription box looked like upon opening it.

This was the theme for this month's box:  Brokenness.

This is a mini-purse.  I found it to be very cute.

The gift of encouragement is a sewing kit: to remind us that God stitches us together with His Love!

I loved the Loved + Blessed logo on the pen!

The keepsake Scripture card depicts an encouraging message from 2 Corinthians 4:16-17.  The reminder sticker is a wonderful reminder that we can break through anything with the Lord by our side (I loved the symbolism of the butterfly).

An encouragement card to give to a friend/family member.  This is a great way to share an encouraging word with someone that may be in need of one.

I thoroughly enjoyed receiving this subscription box!  I found it to be such a blessing with its words of encouragement.  I also loved the fact that the cards could be used as gifts of encouragement to others.  This would be a wonderful gift to any friend/family member in need of encouragement or just to brighten someone's day.  

There is another piece of exciting news!  FlyBy Promotions is running a giveaway for one these subscription boxes!  Follow this link to enter:

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my review!

Happy Reading!

The Heart of a Leader Review

The Heart of a Leader:  Insights on the Art of Influence

Author:  Ken Blanchard
Publisher:  David C. Cook
Pages:  192
Audience:  Adults
Genre:  Business, Christian Life, Professional Growth

This book is comprised of some of the most influential leadership quotes  that Dr. Blanchard has come across or developed.  The format of the book is very reader-friendly.  Dr. Blanchard features the sayings and writes a commentary of the quote.  These commentaries are short and are filled with Christian advice.

In my opinion, I consider all of us as leaders.  Whether you are a parent, and/or work in business or ministry we all have the ability to influence others.  I would recommend this book to everyone for this very reason.  Two of my most favorite quotes I came away with from reading Dr. Blanchard’s book are:  ‘What we give our attention to, grows.’ and ‘Take what you do seriously but yourself lightly.’

Leave a comment below of any of your favorite leadership/encouraging quotes; I would love to read them.

Happy Reading!

Book Giveaway Time!

Book Giveaway!

Hi My Book-Loving Friends!

I wanted to start hosting some book giveaways for you guys so I thought since Spring is almost here why not start a new beginning?

The first book I wanted to giveaway is my copy of Miracles From Heaven by Christy Wilson Beam.  

Annabel Beam spent most of her childhood in and out of hospitals with a rare and incurable digestive disorder that prevented her from living a normal, healthy life. One sunny day when she was able to go outside and play with her sisters, she fell three stories headfirst into an old, hollowed-out tree. Implausibly, she survived without a scratch. While unconscious inside the tree, with rescue workers struggling to get to her, she visited heaven. After being released from the hospital, she defied science and had inexplicably recovered from her chronic ailment.

A remarkable family drama and uplifting, hope-filled memoir, MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN will change how we look at the world around us.

I posted my review of this book on January 31, 2016 and here the link if you would like to read it
