Update: Friends, we have a winner!! We had 27 entrants (28 comments with Tara's comment with the info to order, I didn't include her comment as eligible, but left it there so the contact info was available to see!) and Random.org told me this:
Which means that Kate is the winner!! Congrats, Kate! Send me your info so I can get this beautiful charm sent out to you!
Friends, I have something very special to giveaway. Very special because of the story behind it and very special because it is just so dang gorgeous.
Most of you know about my bestie. She's awesome. Our friendship is one that became of difficult circumstances and quickly grew into the most amazing relationship. She's as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside and I am so proud of all of the accomplishments she's achieved! (Not to mention she's super fun, too.)
Tara has been on a faith journey over the last few years. It's been amazing; watching her transformation from a passive believer to a passionate, on-fire for her faith, servant of Christ.
As part of Tara's journey (read her story here), she designed a gorgeous piece of jewelry, originally just for herself, as a reminder of her faith journey.
As a symbol of how she (we) are always "Becoming in Christ". The pendant and/or charm is a möbius symbol with a cross in the middle. It is polished and brushed silver...here is the explanation of how they all fit together:
Möbius: a mathematical symbol for constant transformation Cross: a symbol of Christ’s love Rough/Smooth Surface: Before & After
Then she realized what a blessing it would be to be able to offer others this beautiful piece of jewelry and the opportunity to talk about your faith when someone comments or compliments (because you they WILL!) you on it.
The purpose of the "Becoming in Christ" pendant, as taken from the website:
I am delighted, honored and positively ecstatic to be able to give away one (1) charm right here on this very blog! And, while only one person can win, ANYONE can buy it, thanks to Tara's amazing eye for fashion and her amazing heart for faith transformation.
The "Becoming in Christ" website. (On-line ordering not quite available, but you can call the (awesome) jeweler directly, get a healthy dose of Minnesota nice, hear our wonderful accent, and finish up the proud owner of a beautifully meaningful piece of jewelry.)
