I am Loved and Blessed! - #review #giveaway

One day last week, I found this hot pink box in my mailbox.  It said 'Loved and Blessed" on the outside.  I was curious because I had looked at a website that helped people set up their own subscription box businesses and I believe the L&B was one of them.  For a while, I wondered if I had signed up for a subscription and it had slipped my mind!

Here are the contents:

  • a theme card inside the box lid (beauty was the theme of this box)
  • a mini poster
  • a reminder sticker
  • a scripture card
  • a silicone bracelet with the words "loved and blessed" printed on
  • a prayer journal
  • a compact mirror with "you are beautiful" printed on it

Now, I don't know about you, but I occasionally have self-esteem issues.  Every day I see more wrinkles and try not to judge myself against the air-brushed young models in magazine advertisements.

In a group of women, sometime last year, we tried an experiment.  Going around the room, each person would give a compliment to one of the other ladies present.  The receiver could not try to negate the compliment, "Oh...this old thing," "I look better when I...," or "I used to be able to run x miles".  It was harder than you might think not to find some reason why they were well-intentioned...but w.r.o.n.g.

So, sometimes when we are in that kind of self-denigrating place, it takes a little little push from a source that won't hear us when we attempt to say 'that's not true'...which is where the "Loved and Blessed" box comes in. 

Every single item in the box brought a smile to my face.  God does not require us to be perfect to be acceptable to Him.  We are made in the image of God and everything that he made is good.  This kind of reminds me of the poster of the young, sad child and the tagline goes something like,  "I know I'm good because God doesn't make crap!"


You can go month-to-month or get a 3-, 6- or 12-month subscription.  The monthly boxes run $12.00, which makes it one of the more economical box subscriptions out there, something I definitely appreciate.

  1. Wow! Just wow! It's so true. How many times has someone said something nice and then I blow it off with a negative comment in return? Great gift idea!

  2. That sounds very good actually! I move a lot so I couldn't use them but looks very good value for the price.
