A Valentine's Giveaway! :-)

“Until the will and the affections are brought under the authority of Christ, we have not begun to understand, let alone accept, His Lordship. The Cross, as it enters the love life, will reveal the heart’s truth.”
~Elisabeth Elliot


It's no secret; I love Valentine's Day. It's a holiday that brings back so many nostalgic, wonderful memories for me from my childhood and just sweetens the wintry month of February with its warmth. 

For a few years now, I've held a Valentine's Giveaway here on the blog. :-) I love these giveaways; they are so fun for me and I hope that they bring joy to you! I am praying that one of my readers will be blessed by this giveaway. 💗

This year, I am giving away a couple of wonderful resources and some other fun items (pictured below :-)) . . . 

Here is what this giveaway contains! 😊

This is a copy of my precious sister's novel about missionary David Brainerd and Jonathan Edward's daughter, Jerusha. This book will bless and feed your soul. It is a beautiful, fictional re-telling of these real characters in history combining fiction with a great detail of carefully researched historical fact. It is a beautiful, poignant love story that is both challenging and encouraging. You can read my review of A Holy Passion HERE

Old Fashioned is one of my favorite films. It's a movie that has just deeply touched my heart and I love to share its message with others. I watch this film over and over again (and this is from a person who doesn't watch a lot of movies because I have young children! :-)). If you have never seen Old Fashioned, please read my review HERE. It's a film that will just leave your spirit so full. It's not your typical Christian movie--Old Fashioned is a gritty, sensitive love story with so much depth and artistry and above all else, that points to Christ Jesus. 

I was introduced to Little Hope's Blessings through a friend's blog. :-) Ang makes such delightful things, like this rose-scented lotion and various other crafts/personal care items. I thought that this lotion (and the accompanying "bath bomb"--the other item of hers that I am giving away) --haha; that sounds dangerous! ;-) was just perfect for this giveaway! 💟

Oh, the Russell Stover chocolate heart. 😋So many fond memories of this Valentine's "staple" that reminds me of my childhood. My Mom and Dad would always give each of my sisters and I one of these on Valentine's Day. We looked forward to this so much and savored every chocolate it contained (except the jelly-filled one--I didn't like that one as a child! :-)). 
I included it in this giveaway for nostalgia's sake. :-) (this in not the one that I had as a child, by the way--this is a fresh one--haha! ;-)--in case you were nervous!)

I printed and framed one of my favorite quotes from Anne of Green Gables. :-). This quote always reminds me of Lamentations 3:23--that His mercies are new every morning--and who doesn't like to start their morning with a delightful, delicious cup of tea? (or coffee, in my case! ;-))

I hope that you enjoy this giveaway! I had so much fun putting it together! The Lord bless each one of you as you contemplate His great love for each of His dear children! 💟

  1. What a fun giveaway! I have been wanting to see that movie ever since reading your review!

  2. I have a lot of favorites but I gues Ruth would be my favorite.

  3. Thank you for hosting this...I always enjoy your Valentine giveaways. :)
    I enjoy many love stories from the Bible, but I would have to say Jesus' is my favorite. It's amazing he loved me so much when I didn't love him at all, that He was willing to give up his life. And it is a pure joy to know that He will never stop loving me. :)

    Have a blessed day!

  4. I love the story of Ruth.Her passion and love for her Mother in law Naomi has always spoken to my heart. Thank you also for this opportunity, May God bless you. I so enjoy receiving your posts via email.Dawn E. Brown

  5. Everything in this giveaway is darling! Visiting you today from the grace and truth link up.

  6. I love this question!! I think I will be generic and go with Ruth and Boaz's story. It ends well, which is nice. Rebekah and Isaac's story is great, too, but the whole split of the family over the two sons is a little sad.
    Thank you for the giveaway, it is wonderful!!

  7. Love Anne of Green Gables! and of course, chocolate!

  8. Jesus! Thanks for the chance.

  9. Such a sweet giveaway! <3
    Favorite love story in the Bible...Jesus's love towards us. That trumps them all. :)

  10. I love the story of Isaac and Rebekah. Thank you for the fun giveaway!

  11. What a lovely giveaway! I love the story of Jacob and Rachel. He, of course, gets tricked into marrying her sister first but still has to work an additional 7 years to be able to marry Rachel. And then he DOES. When he first meets her, he kisses her and lifts up his voice and weeps.

  12. The love story between a husband and wife Jacob and Rachel.

  13. I was too late to the party. I look like someone will received some wonderful things. Blessings to you. Maree

  14. I was late too. Thanks for linking up with us at the #LMMLinkup. I will have to subscribe so I don't miss your next giveaway.

  15. Thanks for sharing this at Booknificent Thursday on!
