Ruby Shoes Co. Giveaway!

Happy Friday! Welcome New and Old Blog friends :) Who’s ready for the weekend??? But first…

image

I am SO excited to share this opportunity with you all!

image

Ruby Shoes Co. is founded by one of my mom’s dearest friends, Colleen! Taken from their website:

We were not meant to go through life alone. God intended for us to encourage each other! We are a company of women, an alliance of friendship, encouraging one another through handwritten cards. We've committed to preserving the rich tradition of sending greeting cards sealed with the promise of blessing.”


imageHow cool is this?

21 Days to make a habit, right? With these amazing cards you purchase and commit to sending twenty-one cards. One a week for 21 weeks.

We as women (and men!) are to be in the habit of encouraging one another. We allllll can use a little encouragement OFTEN and doesn’t it especially help to just know that someone else is experiencing the EXACT same thing as you?

That’s what I feel like this great big BLOG world is - an encouragement! What a cool way to take that and share it with others who may not be into the blogging world or could just use some loving encouragement? Handwritten?

image Check out the website by clicking the above picture and then…

ENTER THIS GIVEAWAY!

* 1 Set of 21 Cards to start sending out and encouraging others

* 1 Ruby Shoes Co. Shirt

There will be a winner for each item and you have some options to enter:

  • Become a follower of Life as a Wife – Leave a comment.
  • Write a handwritten note to someone – Leave a comment.
  • Just leave a comment sharing something encouraging!
  • Make a purchase from Ruby Shoes Co. and commit to sending 21 cards – Leave a comment to let us know!

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
- 1 Peter 5:7

Have a great weekend! Please be blessed and encouraged!

WOW! I can't believe how many times I've heard or read the 1 Peter 5:7 verse today. Not sure what I need to give up to God today but am thankful to read it here again! Thanks for posting this.

Visiting through from FF. :)

Just jotted a sweet little card for the hubby - thanking him for being the most wonderful captain of this crazy ship!! Thanks for the encouragement to do so. What a great way to kick off the weekend!


AND - I forgot, like the sleep deprived mommy that I am, to leave my email address in the last post (stanleybaby at gmail dot com)

Alecia @ Savings and Stewardship said...

I've been thinking a lot about the Lord's promise in Matthew 6 - that His eye is always on the sparrow. So, as my encouragement - remember that He values you so much more than you will ever fathom!!

Happy Friday Follow! Great giveaway too.

I sent a handwritten note to a friend. I love doing this every week!

Midday Escapades said...

You picked a great scripture, too. Very encouraging!

Ria-

I just got some of these cards at the Bridging the Gap conference. I was very charmed by the idea, and the cards are darling. Thus far, I've sent four of them. : )
It's a great concept, and a great motivator. I used to write a lot of cards, now I tend to Facebook or text or email... and it's just not the same.

Spent some time talking with the gal who was presenting them, had no idea she knew you or your Mom- what a small world!
