We started a long distance relationship in August 2019 and by February 2020 he was on one knee at Rockefeller center as the score from La La Land played. Although getting married in 2020 wasn’t even close to what we had planned, we still get to wake up next to each other everyday. We are so excited for our first Christmas together and this will be the first ornament we buy for ourselves!"

Double Portion 2020
"We felt like God said at the beginning of the year it would be a Double Portion year. At first we thought God was being funny but we’ve gained so much more than we’ve lost over the past year. Now we see this phrase differently. It didn’t mean money or experiences but double portion in relationships, closeness of family and the culture in our home. We want to remember the word God spoke"

"I work in the Emergency Department. We recently lost a great friend and coworker, Matt, who was an amazing nurse in the ER. He lived life to the fullest, was the brightest light to so many and we all miss him so much. We always say, "if Matt Harley was here.." because he would have done whatever it is. He brought life to the ER. He is missed by so many of us and our ER family will never be the same. These are for our close group of friends who work together. We keep him in our hearts. The other bracelets that say "MLMATTHEW" are for his family, his mom, dad, and two sisters, it means, "more like matthew" because he was just that great. <3"

sea
"In our wedding vows, Curtis and I promised to live together by the sea. More than a commitment to the location of our home, it set the tone for the type of abundance we wanted to weave through our daily lives. To us, the sea represents our plentiful God. Plenty of fish, plenty of sunshine, plenty of time, adventure, blessings. I tend to rush around life, and ’sea’ is the word that slows me down. So, we live our life by the sea!"

"Our first baby girl was due June 29th, I went into early labor. Just before pushing and to our shock, my COVID test (as given by standard procedure these days upon arriving at the hospital) came back positive. Fear flooded our minds as the delivery staff suited up before I began pushing. My husband and I masked up and had a baby within 5 mins. For two weeks after she was born we were in quarantine. We could hold her without our N95s, we couldn’t kiss her or feed her. She got her first kiss 15 days after she was born. It was a scary, rough start but today we kiss her until she get frustrated with us and her baby book is adorned with our big, teal n95 masks. All she saw for the first two weeks of life here on earth."

We’re declaring life over our baby and that this is just the beginning."

On your side
“Growing up our parents told us we had to be best friends. That was confusing because she was my sister- how could we be best friends, too? Time has taught us the power of sisterhood and growth has given us the gift of sharing ourselves with one another. If life is about connection and lifting up the people around you. I know I have someone who is forever on my side. I'm on hers, too.”

Keep on shining
“In the summer of 2018 i went to an English campsite in france. We had a youth club every morning and some evenings from tuesday till saturday. We played a game and after that our youth leaders would give a talk about a topic of the bible. We could go to them to get a prayer. After a few days I really wanted to get a prayer, but I was scared to go. After doubting for about 20 minutes ago i did go to one of my leaders and she prayed for me. For the things I struggled with and had gone through. So the next week i went to get a prayer every day i could. Last summer we went to the same campsite and my leader who prayed for me was there again to be leading. I spent some time talking and praying with each other, which was truly amazing. She and another youth leader wrote to me to keep on shining and to let my light shine. So getting this phrase on a necklace is something i want so i will be reminded of it every day. For the one who is reading this shine light in the dark places. Maybe it means people you know that have mental health issues or something else. Spending time with those people is important and they appreciate it. Maybe they don't say it but don't let them fight on their own. I know it can be hard because I have a friend close to who has PTSD. Don't give up on them!’’

“I’m 27. I've been dating this woman for almost 5 months but i've known her since we were 12 and 13.

I believe that we, as humans, are the sum of all our experiences, yet constantly renewed in this moment. So, we are new old things.”

“In this latest season, God has used a story I would have never been brave enough to choose for myself and showed me that sometimes the greatest joy is FOUND when we are drained of all misplaced hope and shallow identities. And often, losing what we think we want allows us to FIND what we truly need. The word “found” is a reminder being found by God who relentlessly pursued us!”

Resilient
"My mom has been and is currently struggling with her reproductive health. She is in pain every single day, but continues to be the best mom to my brother and I, as well as an amazing wife to my dad. Her faith that God will provide is an example to all of us. She has some doctors appointments coming up and we are all praying that they provide answers, along with a solution. She has suffered so much, but makes it seem like everything is okay. This word represents her strength in the face of hurt and uncertainty, and her reliance on God. It's defined as the ability to withstand difficult conditions and that is the epitome of how my mom acts. I'm currently in college, so i'm not able to help her with anything at home, but my brother and father are learning to step up when she can't be on her feet anymore. I love my mom so much and we are all praying that things get better for her soon.”

I wish I could say she is a believer, but I am believing that it will be finished before I know it that the Lord will win her heart over.

Wearing the previous necklace- people would ask me about the word and it was so good to have a platform to talk about my friend Kelly Anne. it gave a way to remember her and rave about the joy she had. I was so sad to have lost my necklace that I would wear almost every day, thankfully I had some extra coins so I'm getting it remade.”

From where I stand the deep end allows for plenty of adventure and has room for a lot of life to be lived. Don't be afraid to jump in!”

“I have a book coming out in january and the title is, From Lost to Found. It’s about God taking a story I would have never been brave enough to choose for myself and writing into it a story of redemption and hope. It's the story that taught me that sometimes the greatest joy is found when we are drained of all misplaced hope and shallow identities. And it's the story that showed me that on the far side of pain we don't prefer, we find trans we would not trade. The word, “Found” is a reminder that sometimes losing what we think we want is just the beginning of getting found by a hope that will not disappoint.”

“My bad a$$ boss of a husband started his own company and just moved into his first office. ( I KNOW, he is SUCH A BIG DEAL) so obviously im celebrating him with a classy and non embarrassing keychain resin’ his company’s name. Hoping this reminds daily that he is so much greater than he can image and he can accomplish so much more than he even knows. This enneagram 3 husband of mind is going to take the world by storm and I can't wait to cheer him on as he goes. He is the greatest guy around and I couldn't be more proud to have him as my husband and follow him for the rest of our days.” “P.s. want to know why he chose towr? Because in the Bible, the tower of babel showed how quickly people's hearts attempted to be their own god and serve themselves. Preston named his company towr to remind himself that first and foremost the company was for God and His purposes. Isn't that the best ever!?!?!”

Show must go on
“In high school I was a part of the production crew at my school's theatre. Before every show or rehearsal, all the actors and crew members would go on stage and play this song by Queen and dance and sing and stretch/do warmups to it. We’d hold the audience outside if they started to show up and we hadn't done it yet. It was such a big tradition of ours that we had specific stretches “choreographed” to go with the song and the words. (Ex. On “i'll still be turning turning turning” we’d stretch our arm across our chest, link hands with a partner, and spin in circles)

“This is the Roman numeral for “61”. For me, this represents the scripture, Isaiah 61, and that God is a God of “insteads”. Beauty instead of ashes. Joy instead of mourning. A garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. A double portion instead of shame. An inheritance instead of disgrace. This chapter serves as a constant reminder that all of my ashes, my mourning, my disparity, my shame and my disgrace, he has made new. He has instead, given me Himself and bestowed upon me an Eternal inheritance.”

BE STILL
“Psalm 46:10 says “Be still and know that I am God.” That verse has changed my life over the past few years. One way was when I was in a season of life where I was doubting God, and doubting that he was listening to me and I had 3 people pray over me. 2 of those people at the  same time said, “Be still and know that I am God”. I right away started crying and was so overcome with emotion. Those friends had no idea that that verse was the only one I could read in the Bible and that I was already so important to me during that season of life. God knows each and everyone of us so well, and he knew that I needed that reminder of him listening and knowing me so he spoke through those 2 people.  I have “Be Still” written above my bed but I want this necklace so I can share my story with those 2 words with people and hopefully tell them about God's love! Thanks!”

“My wife and I got married at the end of November and coming into our first Christmas we both agreed to get just small presents for each other. I had heard of “Our Spare Change” before and I knew she would love the mission behind what they are doing. When thinking of the word for her, I was honestly torn between a few, but “STRONG” is what seemed to resonate with me. Allie is such a strong woman and that is why I love her. I know that she can do so much and I wanted to give her something that when life gets tough and she might not feel enough, she can look down and remember that she is strong and do anything.”

"At my mother's funeral (she was 100 years old) the priest asked if anyone would like to sing over the grave site. He of course looked at my sister who is an opera singer and she said "i couldn't possibly but perhaps Nancy (our cousin who also had a beautiful voice and a professional Christian singer) could. Shocked Nancy said oh, well I will try because I love Aunt Gigi (my mom) so much. She stood up and asked what she should sing and the priest said "anything you want". She thought for one minute and started singing out the song "Give me Jesus". It was incredibly beautiful and moving. So special for us."

"It started when my younger sister kept singing the song "Baby Got Back" specifically the lyrics "Oh, my god, Becky, look at her butt, it's so big" and somehow the name 'Becky' stuck and we all started to use it jokingly when talking with one another (although none of us are blessed with big butts). Overtime as we grew up and moved out for college, my mom started to sign her texts to us with LUB - 'love you becky' and it caught on so it's our special three letter word. My sister and I have both been wearing gold chain necklaces for years similar to the one my dad has had since he was 16 so we thought it was time we got something special to have with our mom as a little we love you too 'becky' surprise!"

Salt &  light
"Matthew 5-7 is the Sermon on the Mount. The sermon is Jesus’ longest teaching and is made up of moral teachings that He taught to His followers. He teaches that the world without salt is bland, and without light is dark. To be a follower of Christ we must be the salt and light of Jesus on earth. We should live so fiercely for Christ that we should flavor every room we enter into with His spirit, and shine Jesus’ light into every corner of the darkened earth. This teaching is what guides my practice as a nurse. It always encourages me to strive to love and serve like Jesus in my personal and professional life. It reminds me to be bold and flavorful in my faith, and consistent in my journey with Christ so that my light may never dim on neither me, nor my patients."
