Naptime Diaries Prints Giveaway
It’s strange sometimes, the things we remember.
My grandma had a little print that hung in her bathroom for as long as I can recall. In fact, it probably is still there now. It wasn’t anything particularly eye-catching, but I distinctly rememeber reading and rereading the framed words, “We aim to please,” followed by the specific and slightly inappropriate request, “You aim too, please?”
It took me a long time to figure out what it meant, but that didn’t stop me from saying it over and over again, at home, at the grocery store, at school. “We aim to please, you aim too, please? We aim to please, you aim too, please?” I was easily amused. My mother was not.
But when I think back to my childhood, I often remember what hung on our home’s walls, the phrases, sayings and images etched in my memory.
When we decorated our home (an ongoing process), we decided to be quite intentional with what sticks in our minds. And especially what sticks in our children’s minds.
With the help of my sweet friend Jessi, we’ve written Scripture on our doorframes (Deuteronomy 6:9), or at least above our bookshelves.
In our bedrooms.
And in our breakfast nook.
So when I’m trying to coax someone to eat another bite of broccoli, he or she can roll his or her eyes to stare up at the breakfast nook wall and find some truth.
And with any luck, a gentle tongue.
I’m fairly certain that if you started reciting the Scriptures from our walls, our kids could finish them word for word. This isn’t just a neat party trick to pull out in front of company—I’m hopeful the words will be etched on their hearts as they grow and when their battles become more than who cheated at Uno.
I pray they never have ugly things written on walls about them, but maybe, just maybe, if they do, they’ll remember the words written on our walls.
Maybe they’ll forget what others say about them. Maybe they’ll believe what these words say about them instead.
I am honored to host this giveaway to one reader for THREE prints of your choice from the Naptime Diaries shop.
Many of the prints are customizable, so you can select colors that work with your décor.
The calendars are spectacular on their own, 28 mini prints that can be strung, hid for the kids, or displayed on the tree. But these prints will also reflect the scriptures we’ll be reading as a part of the She Reads Truth advent daily devotional that will walk through the Old Testament + New Testament celebrating the joy of His birth.
Further proof that Jessi aims to please, if you order an advent calendar today (Thursday, October 25th) or tomorrow (Friday, October 26th), you get a free print of your choice from the Naptime Diaries shop.
In addition, Jessi is offering a 20% off discount on any prints you’d like to order (sorry, offer not good for the advent calendar). Just use the coupon code MAMAPEA upon checkout.
But let’s give away some prints, too! To enter, leave a comment with your funniest childhood memory. I want to bust a gut here, people.
I’ll pick a comment at random and announce the winner on Sunday, October 28th.
