Dayspring Giveaway

My grandmother is the strongest woman I know.

She is mother to 6, "Gramma" to 29, and Great Gramma to 3.  She worked hard to raise six kids on her own, and she has always been someone I could depend on no matter what.

My papa has been declining in health over the past year.  It's hard to watch him slip away, but even harder to see the look in Gramma's eye as she squeezes Papa's hand.  Shouldn't best friends be able to be together, always?

Gramma's structured, scheduled, predictable life has turned into a haze of transporting Papa from doctor to doctor, rearranging her home to make room for hospital beds and wheelchairs, and always having a nurse on hand.  It's stressful, and discouraging, and all of it is a reminder that their golden years aren't going as planned.

But God's hand is in it all, and Gramma needs reminders of that.

So when I was given the opportunity to review Dayspring products, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them afterward.  I wanted to encourage my amazing Gramma, and remind her that she is blessed and loved.

Look at this beautiful Blessed and Loved collection I was sent by Dayspring!  I am absolutely in love with it.  I love the green, blue, and black color scheme, the wispy white flowers, and the ever-comforting blessing,

The Lord bless you and keep you
Numbers 6:24
I think having these reminders around Gramma's home will be a blessing to her.  I can't wait for the package to show up on her doorstep!

I love thinking about this sweet little mug being added to the collection that hangs next to Gramma's kitchen window, and I think the daily calendar will be an encouragement to her as she sits at her desk.  I had to become creative with the journal, because I haven't seen Gramma use one before, but I hope she will be blessed by the passages of Scripture I wrote inside of it and the excerpts from favorite devotionals I shared with her.

Through (in)courage, I received this beautiful gift set from Dayspring.  (in)courage is a wonderful website for women to be inspired, comforted, and encouraged in their daily walk with their Savior.  I've been very blessed by reading posts from other Christians, and hope you will be, too!

Dayspring is an incredible company.  You probably recognize them from their beautiful cards in Hallmark and inspirational gifts in Christian bookstores across the country.  I'm so excited to get to share a $20 credit to their online store with you, because it gives you the ability to choose anything you would like!

  1. That made me tear up about your grandma and grandpa. I want to be that kind of woman if my husband ever needs it.

  2. What thoughtful gifts! I think your grandma will really love them all. :) beautiful passage of the scripture...thank you very much for sharing this, Bethany :)

  3. I'm sorry about your PAPA and Grandma. He is blessed to have a loving wife to take care of him. My Granny was there everyday till the end for my Granddaddy. And she has outlived all her siblings and his siblings. Very Strong woman, so I understand how you feel about your Grandma. I'll be praying for her peace during this difficult time in her life.

  4. Makes me think of my Billie Grandma and Grandpa Marshall who were so in love until their last days here on earth.

    Love and Light,
