Loved + Blessed August 2018 Review
This month’s Loved + Blessed theme is “Relax.”
This month’s mini-poster says, “YOU CAN DO ANYTHING BUT NOT EVERYTHING” and on the back, it reads, “LET YOURSELF REST.” How appropriate to include this positive message to keep me grounded in what I can and can’t do and to remind me to “let myself rest.” I can get caught up with work, reviews, and personal issues and not take the time to be in the moment and be at ease with myself.
The reminder sticker says, “TAKE A BREAK.”
This month’s scripture comes from Matthew 11:28-30 NIV:
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
This 100% polyester pillowcase has “Give it to God and go to bed.” written on the edge of the pillowcase. This standard pillowcase fit my pillow, it had some room, and I could have put a bigger pillow in the case. The pillowcase is an unusual item for this box, but it fits the theme of “Rest” and how I need to get my sleep and be well-rested for life. I received a pillowcase in another subscription box years ago, and it was satin or polyester, and now I have a set of pillowcases that are similar fabric.
Bonus Item: The Rancher’s Second Chance By Brenda Minton
The book is a gift, I'm assuming from the publishing company in conjunction with Loved + Blessed. I saw on Amazon that the Kindle it’s $3.99 and paperbacks $1.99. I’m not much of a romance reader, and the beginning of the story didn’t draw me in and the story of Grace and the Rancher, Brody which seemed all too familiar with their love triangle and her adjusting to changes in her life. The book may be a hit for others. It seemed to be an easy read and finished in one sitting if you choose plus, a typical storyline with an ending that’s predictable hence the name The Rancher’s Second Chance. It seemed to be in a third person narrative and just wasn’t for me. From Amazon:
Reunited with the Cowboy
Pregnant and running scared, Grace Thomas turns to the one man she knows she can count on rancher Brody Martin. The charismatic Texan promises to protect her, but she knows he'll never forgive her for breaking his heart and taking up with his former best friend. Given Brody's unsettled past, Grace understands that the guarded cowboy needs time to trust her again. As he helps her prepare for the baby's arrival, Grace knows she's found the perfect father for her child. But can she dare to dream of a second chance with the man she's never stopped loving?
Enclosed is a “Me Time Activity Idea List” to go along with the theme. “A great way to relax is with a fun book. Enjoy this book and then pass along to a friend.” Plus, enjoy the many activities on the bookmark to have some “me time” which equals rest and indulging in a few more of the activities with a friend.
Loved + Blessed include an Encouragement Kit with every subscription box. I love the idea of an encouragement kit. It is meant to be passed on to a stranger or as an encouragement for someone I know. The encouragement kit this month is a pop-up card with an envelope with “Be Encouraged” on the front, and the back of the card has their logo and website info. Lately, Love+ Blessed have been sending these pop-up cards in their monthly encouragement kit. I have yet to use these pop-up cards; I don’t like when a box has their message and name on a product as an advertisement.
Here’s the scripture card from the pop-up card. The scripture is from Matthew 5:14-15.
Verdict: Loved + Blessed box delivers on sending me encouraging scriptures and products to elevate my soul and allow me to think and dissect my spiritual journey. This month’s theme rest was timely as I’m in need of rest. My favorite items were the pillowcase and the messages from the mini-poster and scripture card. The book wasn’t my favorite, and I will pass onto a friend, The box usually falls around the value of the cost of the sub which is $19.99; this month's value is low, but there’s no monetary value put on encouragement.
