Blessings in Motherhood (Review & Giveaway)

 *** Giveaway Now Closed ***
Congratulations to Lindsey!
 

A little over eight years ago, I became a Mom for the first time.  I remember heading to the hospital both joyous and petrified, a funny combination indeed.  I was so excited that soon I would meet my little one.  Boy or Girl?  We didn't know.  I can honestly say this about all five of my kiddos, only maybe I was slightly less petrified than the prior one.

In these eight years my kids have taught me so much.  This may surprise a few of you but I don't know everything, and you know what - I don't have to.  My kids have directed my eyes more to God than myself.  I have also come to realize that I am a model for them.  If my actions/behaviors/words reflect Jesus, they are more likely to reflect Him as well.

My kids have taught me to laugh more, play hard, and discover again.  Discover new things and marvel at God's creation - that is a gift beyond measure.  And something I hope to teach them - to Abide in Him.

I am abundantly blessed indeed!  DaySpring sent me not one, but two items for review!  I received both the Abide in Him Wall Art Piece along with the Lord Bless This Home piece as well - both are beautifully made.

David hanging our new wall piece

Final location

As David was hanging our wall art A asked, "I know that Him is God but what does abide mean?"  Great question!  Our answer to A, "It means to stay, dwell, remain, live".  And may we always!  Thanks to DaySpring we have a tangible reminder in our home.

We couldn't think of a better place for this piece!

Would you like one of these beautiful pieces for yourself?  The whole month of May, the Abide in Him piece is on sale for $20 off - how awesome is that?  Just click here - Abide in Him- $20 off!  Want to win one?  Keep reading...

Now onto the giveaway!  DaySpring and (in)courage have generously offered one of you an Abide in Him Wall Art Piece!  Note:  The winner will be sent a code for their piece which expires 8/31/2012 and shipping charges will apply.
