August 2018 Loved + Blessed unboxing time!
If you haven’t heard, Loved + Blessed is a subscription box that sends a monthly “box of encouragement” for women of faith. Each box will follow a different theme and consist of a mini poster for your home or office, a repositionable reminder sticker, a scripture card, a keepsake theme card, and a special gift of encouragement. Gifts can include jewelry, books, home decor, fashion accessories, and more. With every box sold, Loved + Blessed donates a portion of the proceeds to Union Rescue Mission, an organization that helps the homeless.

Subscriptions are $15.99/month (plus $4 shipping), or less with multi-month commitments.
Let’s see what’s in the August 2018 Loved + Blessed box!
As always, everything was shipped in a small hot pink box via First Class Mail.
A peek inside!
An info card revealed August’s theme — “Relax”.
Keepsake Theme Card
Taped to the inside lid was a keepsake theme card which further explained the meaning of this month’s theme. It was to serve as a reminder that when we take time to rest and relax it confirms that we know that God is in control and to trust in him.
August’s 5 x 7 inch mini poster/print featured the phrase “You can do anything but not everything” inside of a palm leaf border. The back included additional text which read “Let yourself rest”.
Reminder Sticker & Scripture Card
A removable/repositionable “Take a break” sticker was included to place on a mirror, laptop, tablet, window, or anywhere else where it can be viewed throughout the day. A coordinating scripture card — featuring Matthew 11:28-30 — could be tucked into a wallet or purse for encouragement on the go.
In keeping with the “relax” theme, Loved + Blessed sent a satiny pillowcase to use while you get your much needed nightly rest. It’s a solid, off-white color with the phrase “Give it to God and go to bed” embroidered on the edge. It’s made of 100% polyester and appears to fit all standard pillow sizes.
The Rancher’s Second Chance by Brenda Minton (Bonus Item)
August’s box also included a bonus item in the form of an “inspirational romance” paperback.
Pregnant and running scared, Grace Thomas turns to the one man she knows she can count on: rancher Brody Martin. The charismatic Texan promises to protect her, but she knows he’ll never forgive her for breaking his heart and taking up with his former best friend. Given Brody’s own unsettled past, Grace understands that the guarded cowboy needs time to trust her again. Yet as he helps her prepare for the baby’s arrival, Grace knows she’s found the perfect father for her child. But can she dare to dream of a second chance with the man she’s never stopped loving?
Not exactly the sort of book I would reach for myself, but I may be in the minority as far as other subscribers go.
A bookmark was also included, which listed some great ideas for “Me Time” activities. — Lots of good ones on there!
Lastly, there was an encouragement kit to pass along to someone else who could use a helping hand. It consisted of a greeting card with a pop-up envelope inside that held a small blank card for you to personalize with your well wishes.
August’s Loved + Blessed box served as a great reminder that we all need to take some time out and just rest. While I wasn’t personally drawn to the items this time around, the message was nonetheless appreciated. 🙂
