I especially love:


This one just rings a bell with me:

    I discovered your blog a few weeks ago and absolutely love it. I ran right out and bought your book which I am also thoroughly enjoying…thank you.
    I really love the Jeremiah 29:11 pendant. I have been struggling with some pain and life-changing medical issues in my life for the past several years and it is always nice to have reminders that God has a plan for me.

    I have two boys, my youngest just turned 6 months old and is adopted. My oldest is 2 and has special needs. I loved the tile that says ‘simplify’ because that has been our mantra since coming home with our littlest one. Simplify, simplify, simplify.

      Stacy says

      I love the Uganda bead necklaces and the Proverbs 24:12 necklace. That verse applies to me right now and once we have the knowledge (about obedience to Christ, how to live, and how to help others) how can we turn away? Love everything at the Adopt Shoppe! And the cause!

    I would love to have the “Braided Fabric Bracelet with Hand-Stamped Tag in Raspberry Tart” for my daughter. She’s 18 mths and seems to love “bling” so I think this might be appropriate for her :-)

    Wendi says

    What beautiful and inspiring jewelry. I love all of the scrabble tile necklaces, I will take one of each!!!! My birthday is next month and usually I have a hard time when I am asked what I want and stumble for answers. So I have started a small list and I am putting this etsy shop on my wish list. What a great way to support a great cause and have a special birthday present that will have a special meaning every time I look at it and wear it. Not to mention when others ask me about it. Thank you for the birthday idea. :)

    Jennifer says
