Gift Suggestion

One of the challenges of this season is the fact that my oldest daughter was born right before Christmas. As you can imagine, this means that she inevitably gets the “two for one” type gift every year. The whole, “this counts for both your birthday and Christmas” disclaimer. When she was young, I tried my best to make sure we still had pink themed birthday parties, no Christmas wrapping allowed. As she has gotten older, and less excited about those pink balloons, it sometimes feel like I myself say that disclaimer. This year, however, I was able to give her a special gift that helped her to realize how unique and valuable she is: A personalized Scripture journal. I was able to select from a variety of images, and I chose this beautiful beach scene. After our Maui vacation was canceled this year, we have been longing for the beach and some sunshine.

Inside, her name is printed, the best part is….. each Bible verse inserts her name! Each page is a reminder of God’s great, personal love for her!

This was such a sweet, personal way to make my “sometimes” picky teen feel special and loved on her birthday. Want to check them out?
