September 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.

Let’s see what’s in the September 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 September’s theme — “Comfort Zone”.
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 to be willing to step out of your comfort zone and let God lead the way.
September’s 5 x 7 inch mini poster/print featured the phrase “Focus on your next step — not you missteps” surrounded by a white and turquoise “cloud” border. The back included additional text which read “There are good things waiting for you beyond your comfort zone”.
Reminder Sticker & Scripture Card
A removable/repositionable “Do it scared” 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 Exodus 13:21 — could be tucked into a wallet or purse for encouragement on the go.
How do I know what to do with my life? How do I hear God’s voice? Maybe the answer is easier than we think. When God led the Israelites from Egypt to the Promised Land, He gave them a cloud to follow. He led them in an intimately personal, ever-present way one next step at a time. He led them without revealing the whole picture because he wanted them to follow by faith.
In Follow the Cloud, Pastor John Stickl uses this image to ask, “What if we stopped letting obligation drive us and instead let grace lead us? What if instead of focusing on our faithfulness toward God, we focus on God’s faithfulness toward us?”
The cloud of God’s presence is moving in your life right now. Maybe God is inviting you to follow him to a new career or relationship. Maybe he is inviting you to extend forgiveness, share your story, or give up your addiction. Whatever your next step is, God is leading you to discover who you are, who he is, and what you were created to do. He is inviting you to a life of freedom. Inviting you home – one step at a time.
This book was clearly a great choice to pair with September’s “Comfort Zone” theme, as it encourages you to take that next step (whatever that may be) in your walk with God.
Every Loved + Blessed box also includes an encouragement kit to pass along to someone else who could use a helping hand. September’s kit consisted of a small blank card for you to personalize with your well wishes, along with a dainty gold “angel wings” bracelet.
September’s Loved + Blessed box encouraged subscribers to push themselves out of their comfort zone, trusting that God will help guide their way. The featured book certainly embraces that theme and has excellent reviews on Amazon. 🙂
