Easy Canvas Prints {review & give away}

I recently was privileged to receive and review a canvas from Easy Canvas Prints for review on my blog! I also get to give one of you a free canvas!! {This give away is available only to those in North America, I’m so sorry to my foreign readers!!} 

When I ordered my canvas from Easy Canvas Prints, I hadn’t been to the beach in several years. I was longing to go back…little did I know, that just a few weeks after I received my beautiful canvas in the mail, that we would be traveling to Florida for a funeral and get to stay a few extra days at the beach!! The beach just symbolizes rest, peace and God’s grace to me. So, I was very excited to set up this canvas in my kitchen. I.love.it.

This is the first time I’ve ever had a canvas printed with text on the picture. I’ve ordered various canvases from various places (usually whenever I find a groupon or sale!!) and LOVE the ones I have hanging in my home with family pictures on them. But, because I love adding text to pictures, I decided to just try it out and have it printed this way for the first time!! I love it so much with the Scripture on it!! It really has become one of my favorite home decor items.

I love my canvas so much. And I’m SO thrilled that one of YOU could win a free canvas also!! Enter below with rafflecopter!

WINNER: Jenn from Treasuring Life’s Blessings

It’s no secret that Ann Voskamp is one of my favorite authors.  Every Monday I try to share my gift list that keeps on and on growing…I’ve counted more than 3,600 gifts here on my blog!! Little love letters from my Savior…he keeps giving and giving and loving and loving. I’ve read her book, One Thousand Gifts, twice now. And I’m in the middle of her devotional. So, when I was approached about having a give away of this book, One Thousand Gifts, I jumped at the chance!! To share this book with one of YOU?? Yes, please! 🙂

Has my life radically changed since reading this book? No.
Have all my problems disappeared? No.

So what is so great about this book? Learning to be thankful in the hard moments is what is changing me…changing my perspective…making me a more truly grateful person. My life is not radically different, but my perspective is. 

There is always something to be thankful for…
In the midst of heartache, He is faithful.
In the midst of a lonely day, He is friend.
In the midst of the valley of the shadow of death, He is comfort.
In the midst of chaos, He is peace.

I am so excited to be able to gift one of these precious books with you, one of my dear readers!! Just in time for Mother’s Day!!
