  1. I’d love to win the No Greater Love – Teapot & Teacups Set. I have weekly “tea dates” with a dear friend and they’re all about checking in on each other, praying for each other, enjoying God’s presence in the friendship, etc…so this would be the perfect addition to those dates! Crossing my fingers πŸ™‚

  2. I absolutely love the No Greater Love – Teapot & Teacups Set. So sweet. Thank you for doing this giveaway!

  3. I love every item!!! But, if I have to choose just one, I would say the wall decor. We just had boy/girl twins (they’re 4 months) and I’m attempting to turn this HOUSE into a HOME. Seeing the wall decor on a daily basis would be a daily reminder of what brought and keeps this family together.

  4. It’s so hard to pick just one favorite thing, but as a tea lover, the tea set is just beautiful. Perfect for a morning cup while reading about His Love.

  5. Felt advent calendar or a coffee mug….I drink coffee every day..even in the summer so I always enjoy pretty heartfelt mugs. πŸ˜‰

  6. I would love the Love Came Down-Names of Jesus-Reversible Table Runner. We purchased a brand new table that seats 8 to allow seating for our newly expanded family. What a lovely way to remember him as we try to break bread together at least once each day!

  7. I think the felt Advent calendar would be perfect in my home, and my kids would love moving the heart each day!

  8. What a beautiful collection! Everything is so beautiful. My favorite is the Names of Jesus latte mug. Thanks.

  9. I love the metal wall decor! Just ordered a bunch of stuff for the first time from their big sale! Loved everything I got!

  10. Beautiful collection! I like the Wonders of His Love ornament best…it had me me singing Joy to the World. πŸ™‚

  11. I love the Tabletop devo.. It would be great to have in my table home forball my family to read. :).

  12. The Love Came Down felt Advent calendar is delightful! I bet it would look perfect hanging in my dining room.

  13. Oh, I’ve been collecting the Love Came Down things like crazy. . .I love them all. However, I would *really* like to have the teapot and teacups next. πŸ™‚

  14. I love everything about this collection. I love the truth and the beauty of the script. I scrolled through it all. I think my favorite is the metal wall decor. I’d love that reminder displayed right next to my tree.

  15. I absolutely love the Love Come Down Table Runner with the Names of Jesus on it. I was literally just admiring it yesterday and thought how nice it would look on our dining room table!!

  16. What a beautiful collection! Hard to pick a favorite, but I would have to say the Soup Tureen and Bowls set is perfect for cool winter night dinners! Love it!

  17. I love this collection and have the advent banner ready to go. I would love
    the 12″ platter, or love came down runner!! PLEASE!

  18. I love hearts… but I love the message more so on “The Wonders of HIS Love” ornament. This would be a perfect addition to my tree. Thanks!

  19. I love the soup and bowl set. I love having girlfriends over and this would be wonderful to serve my soup in!

  20. Making choices is not one of my specialties–I love pretty much everything in this collection! If I had to choose a favorite though, I really like the soup tureen and bowl set.

  21. I like the Love Came Down – Brightest Hope – Metal Wall Decor its something I can have up every day to remind me of God’s love.

  22. This is an AMAZING collection! I love all of the items! I would choose the Love Came Down – Purest Love – Christmas Boxed Cards & Mugs Gift Set. Thanks so much for the chance to win and for sharing this collection.

  23. It’s hard to pick a favorite but the coffe mugs catch my eye because I can see myself using it all year long.

  24. Can I pick two? A Christmas family tradition is hot cocoa and Christmas cookies (the first we were allowed to eat them) on Christmas Eve while we read the Birth of Christ. When I was a child, we each had our own special mug with our name and birthdate on it (they were copper mugs) and my mom had copper trays for the cookies.

    For years I’ve been searching for just the right mug/platter combo for the continuation of this tradition with my husband and children. That’s why I need to pick 2! πŸ™‚

    I would pick the Love Richly mugs and/or the Giving platter. (And I’ve added them to my Santa wish list, just in case!)

  25. Oh I would love the metal wall decor in the Love Came Down collection. I have a Norman Rockwell poster of a woman and her son in a restaurant, circa 1950, in which she and her son are praying before eating and others are staring at them. I want to frame the poster and have the metal wall decor next to it.

  26. I love the Joy Came Down-Christmas Stationery or the Savior Has Been-18 Christmas Boxed Cards. Why? Because I have taken on a project for my church where I am sending out “cards of encouragement” to shut-in, nursing home patients, or just anyone that could use a postitive note. I was so blessed on our Serve Sunday at church where my group was “Cards of Encouragement”. I had to pick something that I could do at church because of my son and so that even he could help out. He’s 4 and has some multiple problems: ADHD, OCD, SPD, speech/language delay, and possible autism. We made cards for our Whiz Kids program as well as for anyone that might need a pick me up note! My pastor said it best to me (I was feeling a little low, that maybe what I did, didn’t really matter), “These cards are going to touch someone’s life in an amazing way! Just for them to know that there is someone who cares sometimes is a good thing.”

  27. I’d love to win the teapot/cups set. I live with a pastor’s wife who is changing the world. She is a 37 year old mother of 9+ and finds time to invest in her family, lead and disciple countless women, and faithfully serve alongside her husband. Even though I live with her – sometimes I don’t see her or get much time with her as I have a busy schedule also. But in the very early hours of the morning (sometimes 4:30 or 5am) we will happen to cross paths – and sit and have a cup of tea together. She would feel very loved by this.

  28. I would love the Love Came Down giving platter! It is so beautiful! I just received the reversible table runner and the advent calendar to do with my son! The platter would be a wonderful addition to our Christmas table!

  29. I LOVE the table runner with the names of Jesus on them. What a way to celebrate His birth and all that He is to us!

  30. Ooooh! I love everything! But i really love the ‘Love came down’ mug. My coffee would taste so much better in that mug! πŸ˜‰

  31. Wow I love it all but I especially love the teapot and the Jesus, God’s Promises Fulfilled – Advent Tabletop Devotional. Beautiful collection!

  32. Every year I get a new christmas ornament for my tree and I would LOVE the Wonders of His Love Christmas ornament!! Would look sooo sweet on my tree!!
    Thanks – luv you guys!!

  33. Love it all but would love to add the Wonders of His Love ornament to our tree this year. Thanks!

  34. I fancy the 12 inch platter; it makes a good gift when topped with sweet treats and provides an opportunity to pass the good news on … in a unique way. I recently purchased a burlap tree skirt and had, “Love Came Down” embroidered on the skirt for a coastal themed Christmas tree.

  35. I think the soup mugs are wonderful! Just the right size and love the sentiment on the mug! Very festive!

  36. I can’t choose my favorite! I love the metal wall decor and the Love Came Down giving platter. Beautiful collection of items.

  37. I just got the Love Came Down teapot during the super sale and it is so beautiful!!! I can’t wait to use it….but my other favorite item would be the soup tureen and soup mugs! Would love to have them to serve up dinner to my girls reminding them of what this amazing season is all about!

  38. I really like the felt advent calendar, for just me! I have so many advent calendars usually for my daughter, but the heart moving down through the days, that really speaks to me! This is the best Christmas/fall season yet for me since my mom died in November 2006, so my heart is recovering and I am so very thankful to God for holding me through years of difficult seasons (summers would be my best seasons).

  39. I love the thought – would of made a terrific theme for my Christmas cards that I make. I would love to win to give to my daughter going through a rough marriage right now.

  40. Thanks so much for the chance to win! My favorite in the collection is the Purest Love 4-piece Drinking Glass Set…they are stunning! I love having the name of Jesus all over my kitchen πŸ™‚

  41. The felt “Love Came Down” calendar is lovely, adoreable, simple yet wonderful…Thanks for the giveaway!

  42. Oh my-it’s difficult to pick my favorite. I really like the giving platter, amongst several others!

  43. The “Brightest Hope” Metal Wall Decor would be fabulous on my wall, just sayin!! A beautiful testimony for all to see.

  44. Oh how beautiful! I hadn’t seen these til now…I LOVE all of it, but I think the advent calendar is such a perfect way to help my 4 year old understand the timing of the season with such a hands on, child friendly way!! Definitely adding it to my wish list!

  45. The entire collection is gorgeous, but my favorite item is the ‘felt advent calendar’ – beautiful!

  46. I love Love Came Down – No Greater Love – Soup Tureen & Bowls Set. The entire collection is beautiful!!!

  47. I love the entire collection, but my favorite thing is the platter. I think it is because I can imagine giving it to someone filled with treats, and it would be a tangible showing of the love of Jesus, in sweet form, especially to my friends who might need a reminder of God’s love this season.

  48. I’m in love with the whole collection, but I think the frosted hurricane is my favourite of them all!

  49. My favorite of the Love Came Down collection is the frosted glass hurricane. It is beautiful and it has so many reminders in it… we are branches, he provides deep sturdy roots for us, and if he cares for the birds how much more will he care for us?. .. and so much more. Love it!!

  50. My favorite thing in the love came down collection is the no greater love teapot.thank you ever so much for this giveaway!it just happens I am in need of a new tea pot!
    thankyou again!!!

  51. Love came down love richly mug is my favorite. I enjoy drinking coffee and I am fussing about my coffee mugs…..I love this one and think I would enjoy using it a lot.

  52. My hubby and I share a bedtime ritual…cups of Sleepytime herbal tea together…soothing and settling before bed….we could use some new cups- I love the boxed card and mug set…Thank You Jesus that Love came down!! πŸ™‚ thanks for the giveaway!! I just ordered lots of Christmas presents from y’all last week!! Always treasured items from DaySpring!

  53. I would love to serve my family yummy soup from the No Greater Love soup tureen and bowls set. Simply awesome!

  54. I cruise the Dayspring site weekly now looking for sales… My favorite item is that soup toureen. And it will inspire me to cook more soup next month.


  55. I love the entire collection! The item I enjoy the most is the frosted glass hurricane, but I also enoyed looking at the tea pot & mugs.

  56. I think my favorite Love Came Down item was the “Love Came Down – Christian Mug.” It’s a nice big mug, room enough for lots of tea or cocoa, and it’s pretty!

  57. My most favorite item is the Giving Platter! Such a very pretty gift to be able to give someone….to encourage them by sharing with them that Love Came Down for them too! Thank you for the give-away opportunity!

  58. Love Came Down – Brightest Hope – Metal Wall Decor…. What better way than to share in your home, what you hold in your heart!

    Love Came Down – No Greater Love – Teapot….. well, let’s just say that I’m kind of a teaholic! lol

    Everything was beautiful, and full of CHRISTmas…

  59. I love the the whole collection! But, I really like the soup tureen. We eat alot of chili over the winter months and it would be nice to serve it in a beautiful soup tureen especially in December. Thanks for the giveaway!

  60. My favorite item is the Metal Wall Decor. I think it would be a great encouragement and reminder for me as well as all of my guests.

  61. I would have to say the soup tureen and bowls. I’m thinking more than soup and more than just Christmas time. Can any one say cookie jar during the rest of the year. The kids can know Love came down (His and mine) as they pick out a sweet treat.

  62. I love the whole collection! It’s hard to choose just one! I’m going to have to go with the Love Came Down – No Greater Love – Teapot & Teacups Set, as I have been getting together with a group of women from various walks of life. A great visible reminder to them as they enjoy a little treat.

  63. The mugs – any of them! I bought one to give away last year but ended up keeping it and it’s one of my very favourite ones. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely line – I know whoever wins will treasure the pieces.

  64. It’s very hard to choose one. It’s a lovely collection. I think my favorite would be the teapot and teacups set.

  65. My favorite item in the “LOVE CAME DOWN” Collection is the TABLE RUNNER with the Names of Jesus! It is not only beautiful and elegant, it is festive and speaks of the Character of Jesus, His infinite presence. It just gives the feelilng of Christmas and the Celebration of the Birth of Jesus, but also reminds us of the Sustaining Power and Life in that “baby in a manger.’

  66. I love Love Came Down – Purest Love – Christmas Boxed Cards & Mugs Gift Set. My hubby and I could use the cups and everyone would get a lovely card in our families!

  67. I am torn; I love this entire beautiful collection! I adore and need the felt advent calendar to use as a visual with the devotionals I will be using for my small children.

  68. Loving the Love Came Down Advent Calendar. I can share it with my teenagers this season as we read through it.

  69. I loved the message at the bottom of the soup bowls. But with limited space I’m going to go with the Felt Advent Calendar. I love the heart coming down, literally. And room to add activities, verses, etc. to personalize it. (Or get the tabletop calendar to go with it.)

  70. I love the table runner with the names of Jesus. That would find a welcome place on my table since I was already looking for a nice one and it would fit with my desire to intentionally shine the light on Jesus more this Christmas season.

  71. I really like this collection! It is a toss up between the Frosted Glass Hurricane and the 12″ Giving Platter. I would probably go with the Frosted Glass Hurricane.

  72. I LOVE the coffee mugs! What a great way to take a moment of reflection in the morning to get our days off to the right start. And what a wonderful gift to give to someone dear to us, so they too, may be reminded each morning of the power of God’s love!

  73. ohmygosh!!! I love it all!! I guess I would pick the Love Came Down trio tealight candle set. What a perfect way to show the light of the season…The light of our Lives!!

  74. The Love Came Down calendar is the best way to keep a reminder of the real reason for Christmas. I bought it last year and posts it in my refrigerator. Every time anyone in my family saw it, they opened it to read the Scripture behind each name for Jesus.

  75. I really love the Love Came Down Felt Advent Calendar. What a beautiful way to count the days until we celebrate the birth of Jesus, and reminder of His amazing love.

  76. The Love Came Down/names of Jesus table runner is wonderful. Our family Advent devotions are on the Names of Jesus. It would be a wonderful addition to our table.

  77. What a lovely collection of the Love Came Down products. Of course, our favorite item would be the soup tureen and bowl set. Our family loves sharing time together on those cold, winter days w/soup. Always gives us a cozy, warm feeling. This would surely cheer one up on those days w/sickness in the family. A wonderful way to share the love of God w/others!

  78. Lovely collection. I would love the advent devotional. I try to do a devotional with my hubby every day. Not sure if he understands what Advent is all about & maybe I need a refresher course too!

  79. All the Love Came Down items are so beautiful! I don’t think I have a favorite but if I had to choose I would pick the wall decor. I would love to put it in my kitchen all year long to remind me of the Lord’s love for me and all who come to my home!

  80. The collection is beautiful…Love the Metal Wall DΓ©cor-which would look great outside my house at the entrance

  81. My fave was the felt calender — I am working with my 4 yr old son on the Advent calnder and the days to “Jesus’s birthday” and this is the first calender I have fallen in love with!
