Life to the full

One of my favorite websites is (in)courage.  It's a collaborative blog of Christian women that puts out multiple posts a day to help women connect with each other and draw them closer to Jesus.  Every day I am encouraged and challenged by the women who share their hearts on this website.  It is also much more then just a blog.  They offer and online book club, which I am currently participating in, as well as an online store, DaySpring, which offers a wide variety of products from cards, to dishes, to home decor.

With as much as I love this site and admire the women who write there, I was so excited to get the chance to review some DaySpring products for you, and also offer a 20$ gift card to the store for one lucky reader!

The theme for this month over at (in)courage is "Life to the full", based off of John 10:10.

"I have come that you may have life, and have it to the full."

Jesus brings life.  And not only life, but the best life, a full life, an overflowing life.  

DaySpring sent me a set of four fun plates that revolve around the John verse of Jesus bringing us a full life.  I love the plates, each on their own, but especially as a set.  I wouldn't use them for every day use, but they are great for entertaining, or even just for display in your home.  Bright colors, fun shapes, and a unique reminder of the joy God brings into our life if we allow Him.

The set includes the largest plate, with a floral design, and the John 10:10 verse with "life" in various languages:

The red plate with black floral design, John 10:10 on the rim:

The black plate with floral design, and "life" in multiple languages:

And the smallest plate, simply with "life" written in script:

I love them all!  The very day I got them in the mail I used the largest plate to serve my homemade Carmel Delight knock-offs to our small group.  I have left them out sitting on my yellow cabinet as a unique way to add some color to our living room.

And the most exciting part: you can score some DaySpring goods of your own!  Just leave me a comment on this post by Saturday, 3/19, and I will chose one random winner to receive a $20 coupon code for DaySpring!
