Inspirational Gift Ideas from Red House Ranch {Giveaway}

I’m so stinkin’ excited to be able to offer you guys a giveaway to one of my favorite places that has provided me with much inspiration!  Red House Ranch is responsible for one of my most favorite pieces of jewelry; my PUSH necklace.  One simple word that means so much to me; Pray Until Something Happens.  And this is just one piece of jewelry that Mary Jo, the lady behind Red House Ranch, handmade ranch jewelry.  She’s an amazing woman with a very kind & generous heart which makes each piece even more special.

Not only did Kara receive one (gal in photo), but I also gave some to my good friends while at my Walk to Emmaus.   Mary Jo, and perhaps others, don’t know this but when we were praying and singing during my Walk, I held on to my PUSH necklace.  It comforted me and made me feel more powerful in my own prayer.  I needed it.

 

I also love her Milagros.  Milagro in Spanish is Miracle.  As Mary Jo shares on her website, ‘the Milagro cross symbolizes a vow or promise you make….and a way to call for a blessing, or be thankful for one.”

There are a TON of designs to choose from at Red House Ranch and you’ll find everything from necklaces to bracelets, rings, and earrings.  There are pieces for everyone; women, men, and children. I absolutely love that she has pieces for children!!!  It is already time to start thinking about gifts for the holidays so that you don’t drain your bank account all in one month.  Buy early!  These pieces are meaningful and affordable.  I can’t say enough about the jewelry and the woman behind it all is pretty great herself.

WIN IT!

5 winners will receive the PUSH necklace on a black cord.   It’s a pretty special piece of jewelry.

    My daughter and my husband inspire me. It wasn’t until I met my husband that I accepted Jesus. I was brought up in a Jewish family, meaning we really didn’t practice and nothing was ever consistent. That’s when I met my husband. He showed me the way, and I haven’t looked back. When I had this new profound love for God I had a lot of rough patches in my life losing both of my parents. I don’t know how I would have survived without my faith.

    My boys are the rock that keeps me going. To have one that is smarter then a tack to have one that has special needs. God took him for a split second but sent him back to me full of life. He has told me several times that my grandmother wad flung great when he meet her (and she has been gone for 14 yrs and he is 8). With that being said “Heaven Is For Will!”

  3. Kim Deal says

    I used to provide daycare for a lovely 28 year old mother to three boys. She was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. Her prognosis is very good. In the midst of this her mother died of ovarian cancer. This young lady not only is fighting for her life, but is always lifting others up with encouragement. She inspired me so much! She always has a smile on, even when she doesn’t feel the greatest, and is still an awesome mom to her three boys ages 5,3 and almost 1 year.

  4. Wendy says

    My grandmother was my guiding light through a difficult childhood. She was a strong and positive Christian woman. Although she has gone home to the Lord, she continues to inspire me every day to be the best I can be. Her photograph is at my bedside and I feel her presence with me always. How blessed I am to have had this woman in my life.

  5. DEBIJOT says

    My sister inspires me. A year and a half ago she was preparing to go on dialysis because of kidney failure. It just worked out that I could donate one of my kidneys to her. Now, going on two years later, she is doing fantastic. She is like a new person, down to one shot a day for her diabetes and living life to it’s fullest.,

  6. Kristi McKenzie says

    What beautiful Jewely! Would LOVE the PUSH cross! A favorite scripture? Wow that’s hard because they all are a favorite, but for today it would be Matthew 8:23-27.

    26 But He said to them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. 27 So the men marveled, saying, “Who can this be, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?

  7. Kim Davis says

    My favorite scripture: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

  8. LoneStarLifer Paula says

    My favorite Bible story is Joseph. His life and circumstances went up and down, up and down, yet h continued to hold on to God and his faith. The scripture that I have taped to my computer is Genesis 50:18-20. Joseph’s brothers are afraid he is going to punish them for their earlier offenses, but Joseph says to them, “You tried to harm me, but God made it turn out for the best.” I have Gen 50:20 engraved on a necklace that I sometimes wear. You can read the entire Joseph story on my blog: http://lonestarlifer.wordpress.com/2009/09/24/joseph-and-me/ and http://lonestarlifer.wordpress.com/2009/09/25/joseph-and-me-part-2/.

  9. Cindi says

    My family and friends inspire me! Whenever, I feel like giving up, there are there for me!
    Also, my favorite scripture that gets me through the good, bad and the ugly is ~
    Psalm 46:10. “Be Still and Know That I Am God.”
    The “Push” Necklace is fabulous.
    Many thanks, Cindi

  10. says

    My favorite scripture is Philippians 4:13 – “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Whenever you are facing burdens or trials, just remember this verse. HE is the one who will give you strength!!! :)

  11. says

    The necklaces are beautiful!!!

    My favorite verse right now is Isaiah 41:10, “Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need for fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.” That verse has given me such comfort over the last few weeks.

  12. Linda Stewart says

    My Mother is my inspiration. She is my rock, my solid ground, my sounding board, she keeps me sane. Without her I would be lost.

  13. Tamara says

    I am inspired by my 15 year old daughter. She takes life with such tenacity and vigor. She is constantly faced with challenges, yet generally had a smile on her face and a go get em attitude. She makes me strive to be a better person. I thank the Lord everyday for allowing me to have another day with her.

  14. Valerie Beuth says

    My pastor’s sermons, the beauty of nature, and the grace of God inspire me. Thanks for a terrific blog!

  15. Dee Dee says

    My children inspire me. Though they are young adults now, they have always made me try to be a better person. I want them to be as proud of me as I am of them. I am blessed to have them and I hope they realize what a special gift they are. I want to be the same for them.

  16. Christy Cross says

    My favorite verse is “Be Still and know that I am God….” always a good reminder for me. These pieces are beautiful!

  17. Andrea D. says

    Proverbs 21 inspires me to be the best wife and mother possible. I love how it gives me something to strive for.

  18. Sharon Christman says

    My three special-needs children continue to be my inspiration. They have dealt with a rare genetic disorder all their lives and try to maintain a happy, faith-filled attitude…which has not always been easy. We are separated d by 420 miles because they live in another state with an organization with homes for people with this disorder. We speak almost daily to the three of them. They inspire me with their love for life, their family and others. And because they continue to overcome many hurdles to maintain and survive.

    Our favorite scripture: “I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me!”

  19. Bonnie Joseph says

    People inspire me, love inspires me. People are capable of amazing forgiveness, mercy, understanding, and love…even in circumstances that you would assume they would not. God, living inside of others, inspires me.

  20. Tony Shields says

    I would love to win the PUSH necklace so I could give it to my mom. I turned 56 yrs. old this year, so she’s been an jnspiration to me for a long time. God bless her.

  21. Kimberly B. says

    My favorite scripture is: For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.:
    Jeremiah 29:11

  22. Pamela says

    After facing many adversities in my life including the death of my 14 son …People often ask me how I go on..
    Philp 4:13 I can do all things thru Christ who strengthens me

    Keep the faith never give up!

  23. says

    Mary Jo is the best! My fav verse is:
    “Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love.” I Corinthians 16:13-14. I am also inspired by the fact that each day I get a new chance and that the prior’s day is not, or ever, held against me!

    My mom inspries me everyday. She always puts others ahead of herself and is always helping out neighbors who are in need. She is one of the most caring person that I have ever known.

  25. Alicia Clinton says

    Favorite scripture keeps coming up in current bible study – Mercy by Beth Moore and in the weekly sermons – Matthew 5:16 and it just strengthens me to continue – Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works and glorify the Father who is in Heaven. It’s not just faith, it’s works too. Thanks for the offer to share and making this giveaway possible.

  29. eva andrew says

    That PUSH necklace is precious in so many ways. I find that every day GOD sends me enormous blessings and people/animals/nature to show me what HE is expecting me to do with my life. My daily inspiration doesn’t come from just one person…but I must say that my daughter continually inspires me and pushes me to become the person I am meant to become.

  30. says

    “If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.”

  31. Kelly Parsons says

    Simply put, my mother who was recently diagnosed with stage 2 lymphoma inspires me. Her strength and her faith have made her a role model for me every single day and I strive to be half of the mother, wife, and friend that she continues to be. Thank you.

  32. Trisha McKee says

    My daughter inspires me. When you are a mother, you have to be a better person. As a mother to Alexis, I want to be better. She has the biggest heart and a born spirituality that amazes me.

  33. susan smoaks says

    My husband inspires me. He has had more hardship in his life than I have but he teaches me to remain positive and keep on moving, no matter what happens.

  34. Saver Sara says

    My son inspires. He makes me want to me a better person and provide a better live for him.

  39. jessica schueler says

    My parents inspire me, my mom is disabled with not one bad disease but several. She has ms, fibermegilia, reinons disease, degenerative bone disease, hypoglocseemie, and now just found out osteoporosis. She is going blind had 3 brain surgery’s and still she does as much if not more for her family than a perfectly able woman. She is a great listener, helper , and she loves deeply. My dad is a genius he knows how to do everything and because of that alot of people call on him and he always is there to help. He works fulltime, comes home and does the things my mom cant do and still has time to help people. Wow love my parents

  40. Paula H. says

    I am inspired by all the generous people around me. I see people giving of their time and their gifts from our Heavenly Father. We are blessed everyday through their acts of kindness and generosity.

  41. Amanda Godfrey says

    My favorite scripture is from 2 Corinthians: “Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness” SO now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.”

  42. misty says

    My Maci Mae is my strength!!!! She was only allowed to be here…. on earth with me for a near 3 years but she taught me so much in that sorry time…..I am a better mother, wife, friend and Christian because of her. I thank her everyday for allowing me to be called her mommy….. once you live through what we all did, there comes a time that you question your faith and have all the what it’s that will remain unanswered until I meet with her again at heavens door….I love and miss you bug!

  43. says

    Awesome to find a fellow Christian website! Just not enough around. My favorite scripture well I have several but my favorite would have to be

  44. Veronica Garrett says

    My daughter inspires me. She is in college and growing into a fine woman with her future planned out.

  45. Laurie Emerson says

    My 7 year old son inspires me. He is Autistic and each day can bring new obstacles for him, yet he never ever lets that stop him. His courage and can do attitude never ceases to amaze me or inspire me. When he tries to do something and does not succeed in it, he looks at me and tells me “don’t worry mommy, next time I will be abet to do it”. He sees beauty all around him and because of him, I too see the beautiful things in the world that I might have missed if not for him,
