The best things in life are free and good gifts can be too…

Christmas just ended and we are already three days into 2018.  The holidays are over and along with them the sales and shopping frenzy that go with them.  But there are still good gifts to be had and given!  

So if after the holidays money is a little tight but you still have some gifts to give, have no fear my new blog series is here.

First up: PRAYER

Prayer is one of the best gifts that you can give someone, whether it’s including them in yours or writing down a prayer especially for them.  So here are some suggestions:

  1. Write a Prayer.  Sit down to write a prayer especially for the person you’re gifting it to.  Caveat: Prayers are personal so you have to know the person and be able to address their needs and the desires of their hearts.
  2. Email It.  Send them an email titled “Prayer for You” (you may want to warn them it’s coming so they don’t think it’s spam).
  3. Mail It.  If you have a card and a stamp, write the prayer in a card and mail it to them so that they can keep the prayer and the sentiment.

Trust me, it’s not a gift that will be returned.

Because sometimes you just want a cool Christian tee…

My life is divided into four pretty equal quadrants: 1) God  2) Family & Friends 3) Sorority Life 4) Teen Ministry (with other ministries coming a close second to them).

When it comes to giving gifts, I’ve got it down to a science but teens are much harder.  The older I get the younger they get and to add insult to injury I’m not as app-savvy or snapchat-worthy as I would like to be.  Suffice it to say that finding the perfect gift of a teen growing in God is a challenge.

So I hit a gold mine when I discovered Beacon Threads.  Beacon Threads is a Christian-based brand on a mission to give the world a makeover by sharing light and love. Through clothing, Beacon Threads offers a trendy way believers can share God’s love or us and their faith with others.

I happen to go to church with the owners (and I still actually work with one of them).  They’re just as cool as their shirts and their boys, who are often featured on their Facebook page, are totes adorbs.


I recently gifted their Child of God shirt to one of my teens for her birthday and she was wearing it the next time that I saw her.  


Search over, perfect gift for teens found.
