If you buy three items (any item, any price) you can get a fourth item for free!

VitacostComTagLine

Last but not least … I placed an order with Vitacost yesterday and it reminded me to let you all know about this company, in case you aren’t already familiar with them!  Vitacost carries thousands of products related to healthy living and they have excellent prices.  We order from them often … they have a great price on extra virgin coconut oil, soaps, shampoos, feminine products, vitamin supplements, all sorts of food items, etc.  One of the great things about Vitacost is that they give first time customers $10 off an order of $30 or more!  And they have a referral program so that once you sign up and order, you can refer your friends and get $10 for each new customer who orders $30 or more.  So if you aren’t familiar with Vitacost, you might want to check out this site.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Fundraiser For Baby With Cleft Palate And Lip (and a sale!)

unnamedAs most of you probably know, my sisters and I sell Lilla Rose products and we are doing a fundraiser for some friends of ours who just had their first baby.  He was born with cleft lip and palate, and will be undergoing some repair surgeries.  We would like to help out Brian and Susanna and their new son – we actually met her family through Shining Stars and they have been a great blessing in our lives!  75% of the profits generated through this fundraising event will go toward Adna’s medical expenses.

Not only that, but this event is set up as a party and whoever places an order through this party link will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win the hostess rewards, consisting of free and half-priced items!  So to put it all into perspective: you can get some beautiful, functional, high-quality products for yourself, you can help out a family in need, and you can possibly win free and half-priced products 🙂 And if you are a new customer and order three items, you can get a fourth one (up to $16 value) for free.  (Note: I have to order the fourth item for you, please do not place it in the cart with the rest of your order!)

One of the great things about Lilla Rose products is that those of us who wear headcoverings can use them, even though that is not what they were originally designed for.  Here are some of my sister’s and my favorite styles:

headcoverings

Their headbands make excellent accessories for headcoverings and so do their bobby pins. Lilla Rose has really nice guarantee and return policies for their products – we have used their flexi-clips for years and they still work great!  They also have products for all different styles and lengths of hair.

Lilla Rose just announced a surprise one day sale, with all of their products 20% off.  This sale ends at 2pm PDT (3pm MDT, 4pm CDT, 5pm EDT) today, Sept 18th.  You can take advantage of the sale prices AND help raise funds for Adna by ordering through this link

If you have any questions or need help with sizing information, please do not hesitate to contact me.  If you would like to donate to the cause without purchasing anything, that is welcome also – please email me for details.  And even if you are not able to order anything, please pass this on to anyone and everyone whom you think may be interested in helping out!

unnamedI also wanted to let you all know that Shining Stars Magazine Volume7 Number3 is now available and subscriptions can be purchased on this page.  We have extra copies of this issue so if you would like to see a sample before subscribing, there is an option to do so on the same page.  This issue contains some wonderful, encouraging articles discussing various aspects of keeping the home and our responsibilities in doing so.

We are also preparing the material for our next issue, Volume7 Number4, so if you are interested in sharing anything for this issue, please visit the Current Issue page for information on what material we need.

Asking For Blessings … And Blessings Indeed!

Many of you have probably heard of or read the book by Bruce Wilkinson called The Prayer of Jabez.  A couple years ago I found it on our bookshelf and decided to read it.  It was intriguing.

For those of you who have not read the book, it was based on 1 Chronicles 4, verses 9-10, “And Jabez was more honorable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow.  And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that you would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territories, and that your hand would be with me, and that you would keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me!  And YHWH granted him that which he requested.”

When I finished reading the book, it went back on the shelf.  I didn’t give it much more thought because, for me personally, I felt like that prayer was for a man way back in history … in Bible times 🙂 … not something I should pray now.  I also had a hard time asking for blessings on my life … and not just blessings, but “bless me INDEED”.  I felt like I was not worthy of asking such blessings, it seemed so selfish.  So, it surely couldn’t be for me!  I think the Father thought differently though!

As I packed for our family’s trip to Israel, I looked over the bookshelf to see what books I wanted to take and read.  For some reason I was impressed to take The Prayer of Jabez.  This was an odd step for me because I’m not a big book reader, but I took it anyway.  I started reading the book while traveling and then small bits of it while in Israel.  Thoughts started running through my head and I questioned myself, “Why am I reading this?  Is it applicable to me and should I be praying this prayer?”

One morning I went up to the family room where everyone was gathering for devotions.  I was a bit surprised to see that an older man named Yohan was leading us in devotions that day … normally the father of the house did that.  But I did not mind!  We were soon enveloped in fellowshipping with our Savior.  I was so amazed when Yohan began sharing Scriptures with us and he started talking about Jabez’s prayer!  I couldn’t believe it!

I came to realize that our Heavenly Father desires to bless us and He longs to have a relationship with us.  Yohan shared an example with us that actually had just happened in front of all of us.  One of the sons of the family who took care of the house had to go somewhere.  Before he left, he came to his father for an embrace.  Yohan shared that this is how our Heavenly Father wants us to be … He wants us to come to Him and “demand” our blessings, just as the son had just “demanded” a good-bye embrace.  Yohan explained that it was not selfish to ask for this blessing.

I realized, if we cannot forgive ourselves and if we hold on to the “fact” that “we are not worthy”, we are not accepting the sacrifice and atoning blood of Yeshua.  I felt that what Yohan shared at devotions was a confirmation that I should start praying the Jabez prayer.  And so I did.  I wrote the prayer out on a postcard and prayed it once a day.

Wow … it has been an awesome experience!  I have been so blessed.  I feel closer to the Father and besides that, I have seen several doors opened to ministering to the needs of other ladies/girls.  Plus, I have been blessed in my home business.

I really want to encourage you all; you do not have to pray the Jabez prayer … you can pray your own prayer … but never be shy or think yourself unworthy of the Father’s blessings.  Seek for His blessings to be poured out upon you … but don’t let it be one-sided either.  We owe Him more than we can pay … but that is okay, He knows it and He still desires to pour out blessings upon us!  He is an awesome Abba (Father).

“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” – Jeremiah 33:3.

Lilla Rose has a three day sale happening right now!  They have added new flexi-clips, bobby pins, you-pins and a headband to their inventory and they’re all 10% off!  There is also a 20% off discount on their retiring styles.

I was recently able to try out the bobby pins and wow, are they nice!  They are very comfortable and well-made, and they work great for helping to keep a headcovering from sliding off!  I have also been wearing the you-pins … I find they work best when my hair has just been washed and is still wet – even dripping wet.  If I twist it into a bun and secure it with you-pins, it will hold all day and feels very comfortable.  However if I try to use them when my hair is dry, they do not hold so well.  So there’s my honest opinion on the you-pins 🙂

This is a long, rectangle tichel … I put my hair into a bun using a large flexi, folded the tichel in half lengthwise, tied it once underneath, wrapped it around my bun, but the remaining ends were too much to keep wrapping around, so I secured them with an extra-small flexi 🙂  The bobby pins helped to hold it all in place.

Also, some good news for overseas readers … Lilla Rose now offers international shipping options and can take Paypal for payment!

If you are a new customer, you can also take advantage of our “buy three, get one free” offer. Note: the fourth clip must be ordered separately so please do not put it in your cart.  It will not be free!  Once you have ordered your three items, email me the item number of the fourth item and I will take care of it from there.  This sale ends midnight (PDT) August 23rd.  Thank you for your business!
