It's Your Lucky Day!

Today is your lucky day because...
It's a giveaway!!!
I'm so excited about this {can you tell by all the exclamation marks I'm using?}. If you don't already know Jessi from Naptime Diaries you will soon see why I instantly loved her.
 I found her through FaithBlogs during a difficult time for her beautiful daughter Glory. Her reliance on and faith in Jesus was such an inspiration to me and I visit her blog every day.  
But wait...it gets even better{do I sound like Billy Mays yet?}...she has opened her very own shop and I get to give one of you lucky ladies some scripture to put in your home.


Here are a couple of pieces I've got my eye on.
Deut 30:11& 14 10x8 digital print

hebrews 4:16 8x10 digital print

And now a little about the lovely momma behind these prints.

Tell us a little about yourself.

 I'm Jessi. I am really deeply in love with and recklessly reliant on Jesus. I'm a wife and a mom and I'm not the best at either but do both only by an intense amount of faith. When I'm not playing with my three sweet Irish triplets or loving on my handsome husband, I'd like to be writing, talking with my sister, drinking coffee, blogging, running, dancing to Beyonce, reading about clean eating, encouraging other women, cooking, vintage shopping, or painting my nails. Preferably I'd like to do all of those at once. Also, i really like Call Me Blessed.

 What made you open your shop?

 I constantly had post-its, torn notebook papers, dry-erase boards, chalkboards, and sometimes my own hands covered in scripture around my house. As a stay at home mom (and just as a regular person), I found I needed to be reading it constantly to speak truth and life into my heart and my children's as wells. I combined that with my desire to decorate my own home as inexpensively as possible and my desire to encourage and bless other women. I find nothing sweeter than the idea that I get to play a small role in a another person being encouraged by God's Word as they live their normal days while brightening their room at the same time! 

What inspires you to create your pieces?

 Usually the scripture/passage/quote itself. I'll start praying about a piece of scripture or a quote, praying it for myself or someone else and colors just start popping up! If something feels soft and vulnerable, I'll use softer lines. A more bold "Word", I'm more likely to use stronger colors or shapes. 

What are some things that bring you joy?

 MMMMMMMM. Early mornings, my husband's smile, when my kids are laughing their heads off, my hand on the outside of my Bible, vintage dresses, dancing like a dorky mom, sweet potatoes, worship, and coffee. 


Can you see why I wish she would move in next door so I could go over every morning and have coffee with her?
