All the stockings were hung by the chimney with care in hopes that your (in)courage staff would give away their favorite DaySpring products. Wait, what? That’s not how the classic story goes!
Yeah, we know. But we thought this version would be just as fun!
Christmas is around the corner and we truly can’t tell you how our hearts glow with the warmth of a thousand twinkly lights when we think of you, our (in)courage community. You, our sisters, who click on the daily email that arrives in your inbox. You, our friends, who follow us on Facebook and Instagram, adding to the conversation with your comments and likes. You, our kindred spirits, who share your me-too stories here on the blog, faithfully rallying around one another with your own words of encouragement and powerful prayers.
You are the heartbeat of (in)courage. As a team, it is our joy to serve you.
So as a Merry Christmas from our hearts to yours, we thought it’d be festive fun to share with you our staff’s favorite DaySpring products — and then give each one away!
Little drummer boy drum roll, please . . .
Lisa-Jo loves the Map of the World – Wooden Tray
This tray sits on my kitchen counter and reminds me that home isn’t just a country, it’s always the people seated around my table — no matter where they come from. Because we are always better together. This South African girl and her Michigan boy and the kids we’ve had in every place we’ve lived. This tray is a reminder that the world is both bigger and smaller than we realize. And that home is always more than four walls or a zip code. And that there’s a God who unites us all, no matter how near or far away we live to one another. We’re always at home in Him.
Mary loves the Nativity Hurricane Candle Holder Trio
Anna loves the Thankful/Merry Christmas Wooden Box with Reversible Signs
This beautiful box sits in the center of my dining room table, and we keep our kids stash of devotionals and Bibles in it! When they’re done eating, they can choose their book and stay seated at the table (in theory. You know.) It’s a beautiful centerpiece and I love that for most of the year, it will say ‘thankful’. Because when we’re gathered around our table, we are always thankful.
Denise loves the God’s Heart for You – Sterling Silver Necklace
The pendant for this necklace has four words engraved: created, chosen, celebrated, cherished. I’ve given this necklace to each of my daughters, because I want these very words draped around them, close to their hearts, so they’ll always know, that they are indeed created, chosen, celebrated, and cherished.
Becky loves the Strength, Hope, Trust, Faith – Stoneware Mugs, Set of 4
One of the favorite parts of my day is wrapping my hands around a hot cup of coffee (with plenty of Italian cream, please) and taking a moment to breathe. So a mug that looks beautiful and also offers a dose of soul encouragement is top on my list of simple pleasures and favorite gifts. I got this set of mugs and let my mom and two sisters each choose one. Now every morning as I enjoy my steamy drink, I read the words inscribed inside my mug — “Trust in the Lord with all your heart” — and make them a prayer over my family and my day.
You are our favorite people and these are our favorite things — so we’re giving each one away!
