Now that Thanksgiving is over, so many people are Christmas shopping in earnest. The lists seem to grow bigger rather than smaller. And what really is the point? Are we feeling empowered to live the life that God would want us to live? Or are we stuck in a never ending rat-race?
Hopefully as we share gifts large and small our hearts are pointed towards celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, our Savior!
Sometimes this is hard for our children to remember.
We try to plant the seeds of faith and of our love in them, but the world can wear them down.
I have two daughters – one a tween and the other a teen. I see how hard it is to grow up as a young Christian teen and how girls’ self esteem can suffer in this always plugged in, hyper-observant culture of ours.
I really want to have ways to counter any negative influences when they’re away from me. I came across these cute bracelets with great messages for them. Its something simple, stylish and sweet that you can give your children.
Then they’ll have a great reminder of not just your love, but also God’s love for them when they read the message.
I corresponded with the creator of Girl Power bracelets recently and he had this to say:
“We are believers… our interpretation of the word “empowered” on the bands means we are empowered by Christ. That is the only way to change ourselves & the world!” – Brian Redmond
There are two styles to the bracelets: Empowered & I Believe.
The “Empowered” Bracelets stretch-n-reveal these phrases:
I AM EMPOWERED TO BE MYSELF
I AM EMPOWERED TO ALWAYS SHINE BRIGHT
I AM EMPOWERED TO FOLLOW MY DREAMS
I AM EMPOWERED TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
I AM EMPOWERED TO CHANGE THE WORLD
The “I Believe” Bracelets stretch-n-reveal these phrases:
I AM MORE THAN A CONQUEROR
I AM FORGIVEN AND LOVED
I AM NEVER A DISAPPOINTMENT
I AM ACCEPTED FOR WHO I AM
I AM CREATED FOR A PURPOSE
