You Make Me Smile {Giveaway}

Hi Friends!

I am excited to be back with you on the blog!

July brought a bit of an unexpected break from blogging. Our family’s schedule ended up being filled with vacations, a conference and a host of commitments, some of which were spur of the moment. It was a fun and exciting month, but I must say, I missed you!

Being away taught me something though. You gals (and guys) are a significant source of encouragement for me! When you visit the blog, I smile. When you leave a comment or share a post, I smile! When you tell me a post blessed you, I smile! Basically, you keep me smiling!

So, as we gather back together I have an exciting announcement!

I’m hosting my first giveaway!

That’s right! I want to bless you for the many blessings you bring into my life. Because, I may have been away, but you were still on my mind.

One of the stops I made during my break was to tour Richwood Creations, a non-profit company offering high-end wood products and rustic home décor. Their products are absolutely beautiful, but here’s the best part. The company was created to support Young Life Ministries in central Appalachia. A portion of the income from every purchase goes towards making ministry to teenagers possible.Richwood Creations 2

In keeping with their heart to give back, Richwood Creations is sponsoring our first giveaway: a set of four hand-crafted drink coasters. Each coaster is engraved with a scripture from God’s Word.

    This is so AWESOME! The coasters are beautiful! And this company seems like a great fit to be featured on My MASTERPIECE Monday’s series! Thanks for sharing! Blessings…

  2. These are beautiful, Leigh Ellen! I wonder if you can get custom scriptures put on them? I’d love to have some specific scriptures on them for my family! 💗

    • Thank you, Alisa.

      Yes, you can get anything engraved on them. I picked out these scriptures and even the font. The staff is awesome and they will work with you to make anything you desire possible.

      Blessings, sweet sister!

  3. So glad to hear you enjoyed some time away with your family. Praying you feel refreshed! And yes, it’s beautiful what this community of writers and readers does for our soul. Blessings, Leigh.

    What a different give-a-way! I love the concept of wood coasters with scriptures on them. I hope your subscriptions soar… blessings!

  5. Those coasters are wonderful. I’ll have to check out that company. Thanks for the introduction. Summers are tough for me to blog through. I usually end up taking most of June and July off. I so agree with you though about missing our online friends :). Glad to see your back and what a great giveaway to return with!

    • Thank you, Candace! It is wonderful to be back. I am incredibly grateful for this community. Thank you for stopping by. May the Lord bless you as you jump back into your sweet spot, as well!

    • Katy,

      And, no worries about not having Facebook. I definitely won’t hold that against you; so consider that credit earned! 🙂

      Have a blessed day!

  8. I have taken a big break this summer from posting more than once a week on my blog, Leigh Ellen. Hosting the #GraceMoments Link Up made me stay committed, and the break has been needed. The resting has been therapeautic. But I have MISSED reading words and comments from blog posts and from sharing, I totally understand what you mean.
    Thanks for sharing your give away at my link up last week!

    • You are such a blessing, Dawn. Thank you for stopping by and sharing your heart! It is always a blessing to me when fellow bloggers and readers share what’s on their hearts. As you return to blogging, I pray the Lord speaks new life and vision into your writing.

      Be blessed my sister!

    Blessings and smiles,

  10. What a neat giveaway! I am sorry to have missed it as the coasters are wonderful! Thank you for sharing with us on the Art of Home-Making Mondays at Strangers & Pilgrims on Earth! 🙂
