  1. I think my favorite would have to be the “His eyes are on the sparrow…” birdhouse! Too, too cute! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  2. I love the Stand on Grace doormat – what a fabulous way to greet your guests!

    Thanks for such a great give away.

  3. What a great month! I loved reading the posts and looking at the photos for this month πŸ™‚ My absolute favorite item, however, would have to be the metal yard sign – although so many other items are close seconds πŸ˜‰

  4. Love the metal stake. What a way to show anyone who comes by the house that everything beautiful begins with God. Really everything begins ih God! Thank you for the chance to win something from the ollection.

  5. I love the picnic basket… I long for more grace… it’s beautiful… sorry I posted previously as anonymous in error…

  6. This collection has some beautiful items. I really love the garden flag and the door mat. Thanks for the chance to win!!

  7. Mmm…the picnic basket is my favorite! So perfect for the spontaneous {and not so spontaneous} outdoor adventure. πŸ™‚

  8. Wow! So hard to choose just one that I am in love with! The picnic basket would have to be my choice; would love to use it for family outings at the park!! Thank you for a wonderful blog, encouraging words and teachable moments.

  9. Awesome! All of the collection is amazing but I love the birdhouse the most! I can just see a cute little bird family using it!
    Thanks for this giveaway…!

  10. The doormat is my pick – hands down! I know a perfect home for it, it would make a great house warming gift.

  11. I love and depend on God’s Word, Philippians 4 so would have to point to the door mat and yard sign with that verse. I know no other way to thrive, yet survive the trials. And we need to continually be reminded so sharing this with guests is important.

  12. I like the “He is my Refuge” door knocker – Psalm 91 is one of my favorites that I hold on to.

  13. Sooo many beautiful things. I actually have 3 favorites: the picnic basket, the watering can and the wooden planter. Love all three of them.

  14. So many cute things but what jumped at me was the Everything Beautiful yard sign… God is restoring a relationship with a childhood friend. We were just talking last night about often it’s hard with all that is happening in the world right now to remember that everything is still beautiful because He is and will always be in control. We are loved by our God of second chances…

    How blessed we are… may we always remember!!!

  15. I really like the: Stand on Grace,Walk by faith,Live in Love
    Grace and Peace are yours in Abundance……….

    This doormat says it all, We need grace for the moment, we need to walk by Faith everyday…We need to love unconditionally…so that Grace and Peace will be ours in Abundance…..Praise God!!!

  16. I love the bird feeder, it’s such a nice reminder of God’s goodness and a way to enjoy His beautiful creatures.

  17. I like the “His Eye on the sparrow birdhouse”….But I like the bird feeder, too. I’d have a hard time deciding. πŸ˜‰

  18. Love the pillow that says “Keep Calm and Pray On”. Thank you for the opportunity to win such a great prize!

  19. I love the bird feeder! This spring a wren made a nest out of a plastic strawberry plant cup on our back patio. We were able to witness from egg to baby birds the amazing gift of life that God has made. I have such an affection for the birds in my backyard now…a deeper love of them than I have ever had!


  20. I have 2 favorites: The Stand on Grace doormat or the keep Calm Pray on Doormat.

    I find beauty in all of nature. Sometimes just watching the animals as the busily work or just looking at the mountains out my windows. Definitely love sunrises & sets.

  21. Everything in this collection is wonderful! However, the piece that speaks to me the most is the Redeemed Beautiful in its Time necklace. πŸ™‚

  22. I love, love, love! The bird feeder! We just moved to a new town and have so many birds! My husband and I have actually been looking for the perfect bird feeder for our yard! I think I found it.

  23. I absolutely love the Redeemed – Everything Beautiful – Metal Yard Sign. I have the perfect place in my backyard for it and I could look at when I’m drinking my morning coffee or playing outside with my son.

  24. My 5yr old son has been asking for a picnic basket so I automatically am drawn to the redeemed picnic basket. He likes to have picnics in the back yard πŸ™‚

  25. I like the pillow to stay calm and pray on espcially with the American flag on it. Our nation was once the greatest nation. And it can be again!

  26. I like the garden sign the best but they are all wonderful.. The garden sign is a wonderful reminder to be looked at daily : )

  27. My favorite is the “His eye is on the sparrow” birdhouse – it’s a favorite hymn and the little birdhouse is just a reminder of how He cares so much more for us.

  28. I love the Walk by Faith doormat. What a wonderful reminder for us each day, as we go out into the world or return home, of how to live as authentic Christians.

  29. My favorite is His Eye is on the Sparrow birdhouse. It is one of my favorite scriptures and songs. That little birdhouse is very cute. I would love to add it to my collection.

  30. The birdhouse is my favorite – His eye is on the sparrow. Sparrows are such small and unassuming little birds, yet God loves and cares for them. This gives me hope when I feel small and inadequate.

  31. What a super great giveaway!! I have been looking probably daily at the metal yard sign that says Everything Beautiful Begins With God!! How true and what a great way to remember that when we walk out the front door every morning and come home every afternoon/ evening!! Thanks for the chance to win it!!!

  32. Too many choices!! All lovely! Stand on Grace, Walk by Faith, Live in Love doormat! I think it would be wonderful if everyone that came to my door saw that.

  33. So hard to pick and I’ve changed my mind three times already! I am going with the metal watering can- but really, they are all a great collection!

  34. This collection is absolutely stunning! I have come to appreciate the Fullness of His Grace Picnic Basket because it can be used to, in a subtle way, to point others to the fullness of the grace that is freely given to those who believe! Too stellar! πŸ™‚

  35. I love the “Fullness of His Grace” picnic basket. I’ve always wanted one and like the quilted patchwork on the outside.

  36. I’d have to say I’m partial to the Bird House — I’ve been singing ‘His eye . . . is on . . . the spar . . . row. …” all day long after seing it here! Of course, the watering can is awfully nice, too.

  37. My most favorite thing is the Goodness of the Lord metal bird feeder. You know it’s hard to pick just one!

  38. I am totally in love with the Redeemed – Stand on Grace – Doormat!

    I think it is so beautiful and would be a perfect way to greet guests.

  39. I love the picnic basket. Never have had one. It would be great for dates with my hubby.

  40. The Stand on Grace doormat is my favorite , although the birdhouse was pretty close! What a testimony to all who come to our homes via that door mat!!!
    Great idea. <3

  41. Love that picnic basket!! Kind of like that rain gauge too…hubby loves that kind of weather stuff, a nice item for the garden. thanks!

  42. I love the metal sign! What a beautiful message to share with everyone who visits my new home

  43. Hi! My fave is the doormat! What better way to find encouragement for my family on a daily basis, plus inspire all those that cross our doorstep. What an awesome idea! Thank you for the daily inspiration and opportunity to win fun goodies. πŸ™‚ Blessings, SJ

  44. I love the Stand on Grace doormat! What a great way to greet people who come over πŸ™‚

  45. I Love the yard sign and the door mat. What a great way to greet those who come to my door, whether they are family, friends or strangers.

  46. Ooohhh…. love everything! If I had to chose one, it would be the doormat. I absolutely love what it says… Stand in Grace. Walk in Faith. Live in Love. Grace and peace be yours in abundance. What a great reminder anytime you walk in or out of your home. πŸ™‚

  47. My favorite is the picnic basket πŸ™‚ so fun. Blessings and grace to you guys!

  48. I LOVE the Redeemed collection and I have two favorite items in the outdoor collection! First is the Stand on Grace Mat because its such a great reminder every time a person crosses over the threshold and then my second is the Fullness of Grace picnic basket because it is so gosh darn cute πŸ™‚

  49. Beautiful collection! I think my favorite is the Everything Beautiful Watering Can – followed closely by the He is My Refuge door knocker.

  50. Love the watering can – gardening is always a metaphorical reminder of the redeeming nature of God – how even this minute He is redeeming the world! How mysterious and awesome!!

  51. I really like the Redeemed – all things beautiful – metal yard sign. Our journey with God has brought us to a place of ministry after a couple yrs. of wandering & seeking his will for our family. This metal sign would be great by the patio where God is allowing us to love others.

  52. When I’m outside, working in my garden, it’s some of the sweetest time I have with the Lord. I love the Redeemed – The Goodness of the Lord – Wooden Planter So beautiful!

  53. The door knocker – HE IS MY REFUGE – with out a doubt this is so true in my life. God’s door is always open and welcoming me in!

  54. Of course I love it all; however, I love the outdoor sign – “Everything beautiful begins with God” — this “quote” means a lot to me! I know this is a very true statement from personal experience. — After battling a drug addiction for 14 years, I became tired of it all. I rededicated my life to Christ, and now – because of Him – have 18 months clean! True life, the beauty of life, begins with God and ONLY God!!!!!!!!! I would love to win this sign as a reminder of the beautiful changes God has made in my life!

  55. My favorite is the picnic basket. It would make a great shower gift for my future daughter-in-law.

  56. I’m torn between the planter, the metal sign, and the stand on grace doormat! I already have the “Keep Calm and Pray On” pillow and outdoor flag (which i love). Beautiful pieces for sure!

  57. Oh my goodness, how fun to open up and see my bird on the fence! Seeing everyday beauty . . . God’s gifts to us . . . gratitude for right here right now. I love it!

    My favorite is the Everything Beautiful Yard Sign!

  58. I love the “Fullness of Joy” Message Board! Would be perfect for our entryway! πŸ™‚

  59. Hmmmm… hard to choose (!) but I think that I like the chalkboard… I wish to put lovely messages of hope and joy on there.

  60. I absolutely love the garden sign. It’s a nice reminder every time you come home πŸ™‚

  61. I love them all. But the doormat is beautiful. People tend to look at doormats when they walk up to your home and how great would it be for them to look down at that.

  62. Too many to choose from…I love so many of them!!! I’ll have to say the Fullness of Joy Message board would be my top choice! I can write different inspirational messages each day. Thank you!

  63. I love the doormat. Where else can I get a reminder of God’s grace everytime I come in and every time I go out (Deut 6:6-9)

  64. The message board ~ what a great place to write our weekly homeschool scripture key word & reference!

  65. What a great collection! I especially love the yard sign – have the perfect place in mind for it in my garden!

  66. Love the Stand on Grace Doormat! We are building a log home and should be moving in a couple weeks!! The Stand on Grace Doormat would be a beautiful addition to our home as well as a reminder to all who enter our home!!

  67. Redeemed – The Goodness of the Lord – Metal Bird Feeder is by far my favorite. My boys and I LOVE to watch the birds inthe morning. My son calls the little garden outside our window “bird paradise” because he says they are so lucky to have a bird bath, feeder, and shade. He says he knows they are happy because they are always chirping! I think this would be a beautiful reminder to add to the “bird paradise” that the Lord has brought us these chirping birds and beautiful time together watching them.

  68. Hard to choose but I think the yard sign might be the fave for me…what a great reminder when you enter or leave your home.

  69. I love the watering can because of the verse. It means so much to me in so many ways. That was spoken over a guy and myself(wondering if it is my husband). I have struggled so much in my life with the “beauty thing”.And also with my life in general. It has taken me so long to get where I am, accepting myself the way God made me. Not completely there, but God is working on me and I KNOW everything WILL BE beautiful in HIS time!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am living in expectation with my Jesus!!!!!!!!!!!!

  70. The picnic backet is so cute! But practically speaking the fullness of joy message board is my fave and fits best with my lifestyle. I wish I went on picnics.. that bag really is adorable!

  71. Just bought a house and it’s full of God-stories !! I love the doormat for that reason ! I’ve been wanting to name the house b/c God has provided in so many ways and redeemed so much through it !

  72. Wow, so hard to decide…but I really adore the “Redeemed – His Eye Is on the Sparrow-Wooden Birdhouse”! It is so beautiful. Thanks and hope to win!

  73. I love the birdhouse…but the wooden planter is also catching my eye! My husband would argue that the rain gauge is best (he’s been wanting one!) πŸ™‚

  74. The birdhouse that says “His eye is on the sparrow” – Reminds me of my Dad’s favorite hymn – he passed away unexpectantly last year so that song has a special place in my heart.

  75. My daughter and grandchildren are “restarting” their lives after a ending a very very abusive period from the one that was supposed to be a protector and Godly head. it has been a long slow process and they are in the middle of trying, on an extremely limited budget, to make the place they found to live a home and not a house.. The Redeemed – Everything Beautiful – Metal Yard Sign would be so very perfect for them!… and a gentle reminder of who is in charge of them and who loves them !… as well as it is a silent testimony to all who pass by or enter of their faith in Him. I would love to win this for them!!!

  76. I liked the grace doormat because I have always heard that “you may be the only Bible people ever read” so anyone who came to your door would be reading a Bible verse and you would be witnessing to them just by that person standing at your front door. I think it is a very great tool to use. I love it!

  77. So hard to choose. I really like the doormat, the picnic basket and the wooden planter. My first choice would be the doormat since I need one.

  78. for me, it’s the rain gauge- A beautiful reminder of the fact that life isn’t always desert dry, but that, in His time, everything is beautiful even in the 100+ degree weather in TX.

  79. I love them all, but I think I would select the Redeemed – Fullness of His Grace – Picnic Basket….thank you so much for this giveaway….what a blessing!

  80. My favorite thing is the Stand on Faith doormat! I’d love to win that most of all! πŸ™‚

  81. I love the Redeemed – Message Board…….gives an opportunity to
    write down favorite encouraging words and remember them daily.
    Thanks for the opportunity to possibly win an item.

  82. The Stand on Grace doormat is my favorite piece. What a great reminder when you are coming and going for all who enter your home!

  83. I think my favorite is the rain gauge. My husband is a farmer and he is always watching the weather and checking to see how much rain we get.

  84. We live in a house on wheels. Therefore, our “outdoors” is different every day. You see, my husband is a traveling Christian music missionary, and we–our seven children, 125-pound dog, and I–go with him. This is a full-time mission, so we do not have a home other than our travel trailer.

    So…I would definitely choose the doormat. It is a perfect verse to describe our lies–standing on grace and living by faith! It also would greet all visitors to our trailer with a wonderful reminder. Finally, hey, we need a doormat! πŸ™‚

    Thank you!
