Plus a Tommy Nelson Mommy Giveaway!
I remember having a pen pal in middle school (or junior high as we called it “back then”). I loved getting postcards and letters from a person living in another state whom I’d never met. I would beg my mom to check the mail, and beam from ear to ear when something for me peeked out amid a stack of ads and bills. I loved (LOVE) snail mail.
In a world of technology, it can be so easy to shoot a quick email or text to someone. I’m guilty of this. I depend on Facebook to remind me of someone’s birthday half the time and the e-gift card has been a last-minute-gift life saver. But sometimes, the extra effort to use a little longhand and a few stamps can mean the world to someone. Sending a handwritten thank you or birthday card is important, even though it would be much easier to let the internet to do the work for us.
Our kids are growing up in a technology driven world. On more than one occasion my daughter has complained about the internet being too slow. I just laugh and say “Oh well, guess you’ll have to find something else to do.” Let’s teach our children to be appreciative. To slow down and take their time. That it’s the little things that count. Calling someone on their birthday instead of posting on their “wall”. Sending a thank you in the mail instead of a half-hearted text. Let’s teach them to share their blessings. To pass on a smile to someone and show they care. They’ll be better adults for it. And so will we.
Share a Blessing
My daughter is super into writing right now. Plus she just started corresponding with a pen pal, so this month’s Tommy Nelson resource is right up her alley.
About Share a Blessing…
With over 1,000 adorable stickers and 24 postcards, girls can personalize their messages with unique style and flair!
A sticker-lover’s dream, this Share a Blessing sticker book contains over 1,000 of fun stickers like flowers, letters, owls, and cupcakes that girls can use to add a unique statement to their journals, letters, notebooks, bookmarks, and more!
For an extra-special touch, girls can cut out one of twenty-four postcards that include inspirational quotes and scriptures, making their message truly special. Each postcard has an encouraging message for kids to share!
Why I LOVE and Recommend Share a Blessing…
A) The cute factor. Girls will love the colorful postcards and stickers in Share a Blessing. I’m a mom and I love them. I even used one postcard as a thnk you note for my grown up girlfriend. This isn’t just for kids and tweens. Moms will love it too!
B) The variety. There are tons of designs to choose from in Share a Blessing. Post cards. Note cards. Pictures on the front. Verses on the front. And stickers, stickers, stickers. My daughter literally looks for someone to give a note to so she doesn’t have to wait for a special occasion. The other day she said, “Mom, if I make today offical cousin’s day can I make my cousin a card?” Need I say what my response was?
C) No technology required. At home. In the car. Share a Blessing will keep girls entertained for hours. Goodbye iPad, hello colored pencils and crayons. Use the cards for invites, thank yous, birthdays, holidays, any days. Share a Blessing is a great resource to use when kids and tweens get “I’m Bored Syndrome”. You can just smile and pull out Share a Blessing. No outlet required.
