*I am His* from the Redeemed Jewelry Collection (and giveaway!!)


If I were to list everything my Mom has taught me, it would take an entire ream of paper. Truthfully, she has taught me so much in my 28 years that I have a hard time knowing where to start. She was diagnosed with breast cancer this past August and since then she's been telling me, and others that it's not her story, it's His. What He's doing in her life, how He is using her, whatever He chooses to do with her, it's for Him.

I've just celebrated my 4th Mother's Day as a Mom and the things she has taught, and continues to teach me, are already being handed down to my sons. I want them to know that our life is not our own, that we are His and that we are to be used of Him, and although the world is full of ideas to be rich, strong, powerful, and downright selfish, we will choose to follow another path. One that seeks His will, seeks to be selfless and allows Him to shine.

This jewelry set that I was given to review with (in)spired deals is so precious. Not only is it gorgeous, but it's from the Redeemed collection and it's called I am His. It's a two piece set, a necklace (my favorite) which is a simple leaf pendant that has I am His II Thess 2:13 on the back (God chose you from the beginning) and a charm bracelet with several great charms on it and the same verse inscribed in the back of one underneath the word, "treasured".



A beautiful set, inscribed with a beautiful reminder that we are His, we were chosen and He writes our story....I love that this set of jewelry will be a great conversation starter.

And guess what?! I have an extra set to giveaway to one of you!

  1. My mom has taught me more than I could leave in one comment. She has shown me that even when circumstances are tough and everything is stacked against you, you don't have to give up. The Lord will sustain you and provides all that you need. I hope that one day my children will look back and see that I did everything possible to point them to Jesus and be a loving example of his grace and strength working through me.

  2. I didn't know how much of my journey as a mother would be a reflection of how my mom raised me. I realize now that she was always teaching me how to be a mom, raising me to be a good woman and mother. Even if I hadn't ever become a mother to my own children, she taught me how to love and have compassion for others. She showed me how to be selfless for the sake of my children. She showed me what unconditional love looks like-- and it is not always hugs and kisses. I am so, so grateful for her gifting me with faith and love.

  3. My mom has taught me about loyalty and hard work. She has also passed down the gift of being able to laugh at myself and find the little joys in life in unexpected places. She is a prayer warrior, and the woman I aspire to be.

  4. My mom, at 76, is still teaching me. She is teaching me to give back to my community. To be involved in my church. To pray without ceasing. To look to God as the Author and Finisher of my faith. She also taught me two very practical lessons in my early days of marriage. If your husband loads the dishwasher, and you think he did it wrong- just bite your tongue and say thank you, or he won't do it again. And, NEVER, line your kitchen cupboards or drawers with newspaper because people will know how long it has been since you cleaned them! Thanks to rubbermaid, we don't have to worry about that last one anymore!

  5. My 6 year old son Hunter asked me today, "Who was the first teacher?" I explained how anyone can be a teacher and they don't have to stand in front of a classroom. As I reflected more on my answer, I realized that I could also have included teaching by example. My mom is just such an example. As we were growing up, she lived, spoke and showed us examples of Christ-like love and sacrifice. She would take us grocery shopping and then we'd leave bags and bags full of groceries on some random person's doorstep. She would take the time to minister to JW's when they came to the door and she would pray, oh, how she would pray. She was patient when I could tell she wanted to give into going crazy. She is and excellent steward of all that was given to her, including her kids. I strive to be just the way she was and is today. She is my best friend and my strong example.

  6. My mom has taught me to keep the faith. She haas always been a strong, positive role model for me, but last December, she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, and through it all, she has remained strong and faithful, and not once did I ever see her feel sorry for herself! She has finished surgery and radiation treatment and is doing wonderfully, a definite inspiration!!!

  9. My mum taught me that I can never change people. I have to love and accept them for who they are and not expect them to become what I want them to be. She also taught me to love quickly, forgive quickly and love through action.

  10. (first of all, thanks for the sweet note on my blog and for directing me over for this awesome giveaway! Sooo perfect today :-)). Now onto the entry, my mom taught me too many lessons to possibly list here! If I could pick the #1 takeaway, it would be that everything happens in God's time. Not ours. He has planned our lives to do good works that He established before the beginning of time. Sometimes, the road is bumpy and our vision is clouded by heartache, and, even then (especially then), He is holding us close and moving us forward. We simply have to rest in Him and keep our gaze focused. He will make all things beautiful and His timing is greater and His plans are bigger than we could ever imagine. :-)

  11. My mom has taught me about working hard, valuing what I do and trusting in God for all things. She encourages me to remain faithful even when "life" gets difficult.

  15. My Mom taught (showed) me you are never too old to achieve a dream. She finished her bachelor's degree at 40 while raising 3 girls after a divorce!

  16. My mom has taught me, what I believe to be the most important thing any mother can ever share with her child, and that is Unconditional Love. My mom has continued to love me through thick and thin. She started telling me as a young child and still tells me today that no matter what I do, the choices I make or things I say, she will still love me. She always makes sure to say she may not approve or support my decision but that doesn't mean she would no longer love me. It's hard to explain why, but that assurance has made all the difference!

  17. My spiritual mom taught me to truly give my real mom to the Lord, and after 30 years of rejection He healed our relationship! Amen. :-) I was so excited to see this necklace, as the Lord has revealed Himself to me again today, and it (the necklace) bears our (mine and the Lord's) secret. I consider it another hug of confirmation from Him. Many years ago, before I even knew it was Scriptural, and while still in deep despair over my broken relationship with my mother, the Lord showed himself to me in a dream, in which He approached me and with the most compelling eyes I've ever seen spoke these words audibly to my heart: "You are mine." Thank you for this opportunity to share. CT tturnerc(at)gmail(dot)com

  18. this stuff is so beautiful.

    okay, my mom has taught me to forgive. when i was 5, my parent's divorced after my dad had an affair and abandoned us. in the meantime, my mom went to his mistress's house and gave her a Bible. can you imagine?? Jesus totally worked in her in a really big way. that act of grace has impacted me to this very day.

  19. My mom has taught me to be strong. She endured the suffering from an abusive husband the first couple of years of marriage in order to protect me. When she could, she left to keep us safe. She worked hard to build a great home and life for us. She is strong, generous, and brought me up to love and serve the Lord. I am so thankful for her!

  20. What a beautiful post. My mom has taught me to be a woman of character one who cares about others, one who serves God and one who has a deep faith. She has instilled in me values and has done her best to be lead by example. The biggest thing she has taught me is to be a listener. In our society, listening is overlooked, but she has taught me to listen to my heart, listen to where God is leading me and lend an ear to those who are in need of encouragement. I am so thankful for who she is and how God has blessed me with an amazing woman of character.

  21. This may sound a bit odd, but my motherly inspiration is the same as Krystle's. Her beautiful mother is my very best friend, and over the years she has shown me what generous, unconditional, and strong motherly love looks like. I have watched how she cared for her family, how she loved her growing girls into beautiful grown women who love the Lord, as she kneeled at the alter and poured out the prayers of a mother who knows where true strength comes from, as she modeled what a beautiful, healthy marriage relationship looks like. All these things she has done with grace, joy and courage and because I am privilege to know her, I have benefitted just as her own children have. I was made a better mother to my own growing boys through her love for her children and her love for me. Now my boys are grown, and they are amazing, wonderful young men. Men Im so proud to have as part of my life, but I can't look at them and who they are without remembering all your mother has given me and helped me to become. She will always be my blessed Person, my other half, my very soul.

  22. My Mom taught me so much about being a Mom and wife. One of the biggest things that she taught me was that it's not only ok, but completely necessary to have a "quiet" time with your Bible each and every day and that you just need to do whatever it takes to get that. i can remember her coming out of the bathroom with her Bible and notebook, I can remember, more times than I can count, waking up in the morning and seeing her sitting at the table with her Bible and notebook and that has had a HUGE impact on my life and my mothering!! I pray that my kids will remember something like that of me!

  23. My mom is my best friend. And as cliche' as it may sound I don't know how to put in a comment all that she has taught me. She is an amazing mom and an amazing friend. She has been the biggest Christian role model in my life and I couldn't ask for anything better. She is compassionate and always puts others before herself. She has shown me what a good, loving and fun mom she is. Something I hope I bring to my relationship with my son. My mom is incredible.

  24. I just saw this!! I love the necklace...pick me! pick me! :)

    my mom is...amazing. and strong. My dad died 3 yrs ago of pancreatic cancer at the young age of 52. She has been so strong since then. She's leaned on her faith in God to make it through, and she's been so intentional with maintaining and starting new friendships and relationships that are supportive. If my husband died, I might curl up in the corner and never come out. But not my mom. She's so strong...and brave. I love her!

  26. My grandmother has taught me the importance of treating others the way you want to be treated... she taught me the importance of putting God above everything else.

  27. Okay, I think I'm just sneaking in before the cutoff time! My mom taught me the most important thing there is to know, and that is that Jesus died and rose again to save me. She has also been a great example to me of a godly woman and a good friend.
