Saintly Silver - Madonna and Child

Madonna and Child

From Saintly Silver

Kimberly Cook raved about these, and we're thrilled to be able to share them with you in our giveaway! Here's what the description page on Etsy says:

This item has been designed by me, hand cut, (no Die cutting here!) handstitched, machinestitched, and constructed with care! I've been designing Saint Softies for over 6 years now, and the original Saint Softie seller on etsy. My designs are made with Eco-Fi Felt, a felt made from recycled plastic bottles, and made in the USA. All other materials in the construction are made in the USA or Germany.

This listing is for one Saint Softie, with approximate measurements of 4 1/2" L x 2 1/2" W. On the back side of the softie is a cloth label with either a prayer or a quote relevant to the Saint. Each Saint Softie is handmade and could have slight variations from the one pictured in this listing.


A Year of Grace: 365 Reflections for Caregivers (5 total in giveaway)

By Laraine Bennet (Our Sunday Visitor)

"Cast all your worries upon him because he cares for you." - 1 Peter 5:7

Nationally-known speaker and author Laraine Bennett knows the highs and the lows of the caregiver's world-she juggles her own work and family life as she helps meet the needs of her talented, artistic mother now completely incapacitated by a devastating stroke.

In A Year of Grace: 365 Reflections for Caregivers, Laraine offers daily respite for the weary caregiver, a chance to recharge and refresh the mind and spirit, and to look anew, with gratitude and hope, at the value of every human life.

Each brief daily reflection includes a Scripture reading or quote, and a reflection for the day. Enlightening, refreshing, and upbeat, A Year of Grace, is a daily reminder for you-the caregiver-of the important role you play to bring Christ's love to those in your care.
