Card Ministry {A Review and A Giveaway}

I've been writing letters, notes and sending cards for years. I remember that before I could spell, my mother would write my words, and I would copy them in my own handwriting. These were thank you notes to my out-of-state relatives for Christmas or birthday gifts.

I send cards in response to prayer requests, send sympathy cards, birthday cards, and just thinking and praying for you cards. A few years ago my friend Charlotte had a conversation with me about my card ministry. I never tried to define my card sending before and admit that I like her words "Card Ministry."

(In)courage and DaySpring sent me a free Hope & Encouragement Card Pack from Holley Gerth's line to review and I knew I would love them because I had previously purchased the pack and have sent them to family and friends.

Holley's words are loving, peace-filled, encouraging, and there is a scripture verse in each card. I also received six of her thank you cards which I decided to send to my two (adult) children because even my children need and deserve tangible gratitude from me.

That's the beauty of sending a card. A card is a tangible gift from the heart that tells the recipient that they are of value to me and in the case of these cards of value to God too. Every card I read from this pack brought to my mind a particular person who would benefit from receiving it on just a regular, ordinary day. Because even on an ordinary day, receiving one of these cards will bless a person in an extraordinary way.

  1. Hi Cindy, found your blog via Dayspring and am your newest follower! Great review and a wonderful giveaway!!
    To be honest, I'm horrible at sending cards and wish I could be better, I'll see one that is perfect for a friend, sometimes I'll even buy it but they don't tend to get sent, but I myself love getting them so perhaps I should work on that;) My best friend is great about sending random cards just letting me know she thought about me that day, and those trule mean so much!!

  2. Congratulations Randi! I've sent you an email and can't wait to mail your gift(s)!


Thank you for stopping by and if you leave a comment...well that's just icing on the cake!
