(in)spired deals for May! {review+giveaway}

Remember when I gushed about (in)courage?  Well, I hope you've had a chance to get browse and read and be inspired!  I took part in the Bloom Book Club, which was absolutely amazing, and they just announced their new title, so go check it out!  {let me know if you're reading it too!}

In addition to being one of my very favorite websites, (in)courage has connected with DaySpring to offer, and it is not just greeting cards my friends!  {my mom always has DaySpring cards on hand :)}  Home decor, gifts, dishes and servingware, books, and more fill the DaySpring shop!

What would a great site be without deals?  DaySpring has a great (in)spired deals section of their shop where they feature a monthly theme, and fantastic discounts on their products!


Check out this lovely Wood Carved Wall Hanging of the Ichthys, the symbol of Christianity.  It's beautifully carved and rests on top our piano.


To our family, it's a daily reminder that we are called to serve first.  And to be perfectly honest, there are some days where I'm picking up the billionth Polly Pocket shoe {could those things be any more small?} and I have to remind myself that above all, my work, no matter how tedious and seemingly mundane, belongs to the Lord.  I am so blessed!

And guess what?  DaySpring and (in)spired deals is offering up a $35 gift certificate to DaySpring for a sweet reader of The Ivy Twines!  Yay, a blessing to share!

Right now you can also get 20% off by using the code: MAY20

Mandatory Entry:  Simply share how you serve in your homes, communities, or the world!  It can be big or small, no matter what you're making a difference! :)

and, have a great weekend!

Giveaway will end June 3rd at 11:59pm CST. Winners will be chosen via and contacted by email and have 48 hours to respond.  Must be 18 to enter, US only! Thanks to the lovely crew at (in)courage and DaySpring for providing me with the Ichthys to review.  As always, my opinions are my own!  


  1. Every little bit goes very far, I collect coupons and bring them to the Church Pantry. It's not much but it does help a lot of families

  2. I am always donating extras from my stockpile to various charities in my area.

  3. I always sponsor a child in our community for Christmas. We get them clothes and toys.

  4. What a lovely piece!
    As for how I serve, God has given me an amazing love for the orphans of Africa. I'm thrilled that in exactly one month I'll be going there to Uganda to serve and love on these children. I cannot wait. :)

  6. I feel so inadequate answering questions like this...
    I serve my family by being there always, through thick and thin, with an eagerness to listen and help lift burdens.
    Mainly I serve my son. He's everything and I've dedicated my life to him.

  7. We donate mostly to colleges to help those students who otherwise would be unable to attend! thank you for the lovely giveaway.
