Moms Loving Moms {Limited Edition Giveaway}

Congrats to random winner, Tracy.
I became a mother thirteen years ago. I spent five years before that longing to be one. Little did I know eighteen-something years ago, I would get to connect moms here with moms in Kenya through my mom blog. It’s one of my greatest honors.

So, motherhood is sort of my thing.

We now have 11 moms, 8 babies and 3 on the way in Kenya and hundreds and hundreds of moms in the USA and Canada and other countries who make their residence at Mercy House possible. It’s mind-boggling, really. And it’s just proof of a great big God.

For a very limited time, you can bless your mom or a m0m in your life, by purchasing one of our unique mother/daughter necklace sets, designed specifically to benefit Mercy House Kenya this Mother’s Day.

Set includes both necklaces for $44  Buy Here.

Mother’s Day is fast-approaching and I can’t think of a better gift to give to a special lady in your life that will also bless a mom and child across the ocean.

Perfect for adult daughters to give or receive…






or little girls to wear….


We also have gorgeous matching bracelets:


Every necklace/bracelet order between now and May 1, 2013, will receive a FREE gorgeous photo Mother’s Day card from Mercy House to give along with a necklace/bracelet.

We only have 50 sets of our Mother/Daughter Pottery Bird/Nest Necklace Sets and 75 matching bracelets. And we cannot guarantee more by Mother’s Day, so order soon. 

The set of necklaces is $44 each (2 necklaces).

Mother Nest Necklace is $30 (by itself)

Matching Bracelet is $25

Today, I’m giving away a Mother/Daughter Set and a matching bracelet to one lucky reader. Tomorrow, I’m heading to Kenya to be with our moms and babies. Leave a comment about your mom or daughter as your entry.

    I’m not as close with my mom as I am with my daughters. My prayer is that my daughters and I continue to have a solid relationship on into adulthood. Thanks for this giveaway!

    I have an incredible mother. Her residence is in Heaven. I have a delightful stepmother, who is almost as close to me as my mom was. I would love to give this to her for Mother’s Day. I have four beautiful daughters, too. Each one is a precious gift from the Lord.

    emily parker says

    I know every mom feels as though they want this to be for them and their daughter. Each story is special. Each one is treasured. Ours is treasured because I got pregnant with my daughter just after starting college, very unexpected and quite frankly, unwelcome. However, God knew that I would keep this precious child, and that she would be what brought me to Him. She was. I tell her often that she was who God used to save my life. I was spiraling out of control in a life of selfishness, despite the family I had who loved me and wanted nothing more than for me to fall in love with Jesus. Well, I did. I fell in love with my daughter, who in turn, brought me to my love affair with my Creator. Ten years later, I am very happily married for almost 4 years to a man who loves Christ, loves my daughter and myself immensely, and we have a precious 2 year old boy. I never thought I would be this joyous in life. But because of the call to care for my daughter, I recognized it was bigger, that it was my Creator calling me to this life with Him. We started homeschooling again, after a three year hiatus, this school year. I know that it was something God laid on my heart because of the events that were unfolding with my daughter’s bio-dad. I know that God put every detail together to bring us to this point, so I would be able to protect her, love on her, and teach her the right way to live her life, including giving grace and offering forgiveness. I would like this gift for my daughter and I as a reminder of what our relationship has meant in my life, in leading me to my relationship with Christ, and to represent as well, my role of leading her into a life which longs for pleasing Him, seeking Him, and loving Him first.

    I am the youngest of 5 daughters. It amazes me how my mom raised 5 girls who were 8 years apart. I now have 2 teenage daughters who are 16 months apart and who are very close. It is a very special gift from God to watch them grow up.

    Pam says

    Being the mother of a daughter is so special. I have many “full circle” moments in raising my 13 year old daughter where I know I feel exactly what my mom must have felt raising me. The love and bond between us is indescribable!
    The jewelry is beautiful.

    I feel so blessed to have been raised by a wonderful Godly mother. I did not have any daughters, but will be blessed to add daughter-in-laws to our family.

    Vanessa Gooch says

    So beautiful! I have a beautiful 3, almost 4 year old daughter who is such a blessing! She just accepted Jesus into her heart and it was such an amazing moment. I pray that we will always have a close, open, loving, forgiving, relationship. I pray that she will follow the Lord always and that she will have a Faith a thousand times more than mine. Her name is Genesis, and it is a very significant name for us. It means ‘the beginning’ as our prayer is that she will be the beginning or start of a long line of Christian women in our family.

    Erin in CO says

    I have two beautiful girls, (plus a boy in the middle!) who are so different, yet so alike. I look forward to watching their relationship grow, as well as mine with each of them individually. I pray for that…relationship…to be the marker of my time with them.. all the other important things can be taught from there, I think…beautiful jewelry for a beautiful cause. Blessings on your trip!

    I am so blessed to have two wonderful daughters, Madison, age 3 1/2 and Sophie, 23 months. They are the most special and wonderful daughters that any father could ask for. The real beauty, is that they are pure reflections of everything their mother is. They radiate with joy, kindness, independence, humor, beauty and humility. I’m the dad who never seems to get the right gift from these girls for their mom. But these necklaces, the nest, and 2 matching ones for the girls would absolutely make my wife so happy. I hope you get more, I’ll pay extra or whatever it takes to not only help the beautiful women and their babies in Kenya, but also to help my little girls bring an extra special smile to my wife on Mother’s Day. Thank you for your blog! 😉

    My mom and I are really close. We talk about EVERYTHING.
    Ive learned so much from her over the years. And now that I am a mother too I go to her that much more for her thoughts, prayers, and advice.

    Jennie says

    My mom and I grew close in my 20 and 30s and then with my hubby’s job we moved away, so I don’t get to see her much and so miss spending time with her. I have a sweet precious 4 year old daughter who would love this, she is so girly and I think the set is just beautiful. She broke her collar bone last night at gymnastics, so praying for quick healing.

    Kim D says

    I’m a missionary wife in North Wales, UK and one of the hardest things is being so far away from my oldest daughter and my mother. I’m thankful for skype and the internet, but there is nothing like being with them in person!! Those of you that live close to your family members, be sure to not take for granted the blessing of living close to those you love!

    I would love to win this to give to my mother. We just found out yesterday that she has more cancer in her body then we originally thought. She just finished 4 rounds of chemo. I would love to give her something precious like this to wear always as she continues her fight. We don’t know what the outcome will be… but these would be so so special for us.

    I’ve been so blessed to grow truly close to my mom as we have grown together over the years. It has been a joy to finally have my own daughter after two boys. And my mom and daughter have the same chocolate brown eyes which has been fun for them both. I’m looking forward to actually being with my mom this year on Mother’s Day. Thanks for your work in Kenya and for sharing glimpses of your family with mine.

    Alisha says

    My mom left us when I was a little girl, so I promised myself I would never do the same to my children, and I’ve finally been given the chance to prove that. After losing two of our babies due to a blood disorder that I have, my daughter was born, and because of the loss of our other children, I have learned to appreciate her so much more than I ever imagined.

    Because I don’t have a relationship with my own mom, it has been my prayer that God would allow me to be different for my own daughter. That I would raise her to know that no matter what, she is loved by me and her Almighty God.

    LOVING your heart, your purpose, and of course this jewelry.
