To enter, please leave a comment telling what you hope to win and some words that have been an encouragement or comfort to you in your grief. ♡


  1. I love number 1. God has grace for each situation. The grace I need is different from the grace someone else needs even if the circumstances are the similar.

  2. I would be blessed to win either of these gifts. Some of the best encouragement are the unexpected hugs and just hearing someone ask or talk about my son Noah by name!

  3. I would love to win either. “You are not alone.” Those are words that I had to keep telling myself.

  4. Amanda Mangas says:

    #1, would be very uplifting to have displaying our home. You never know if someone visiting might need to see some words of encouragement.

  5. Oh I really love number 1! Just heading people say our baby mattered and that my love matters makes all the difference.

  6. I would love the wooden frame with the words of encouragement. Would be so deftly to have.

  7. Randi Schlenker says:

    I love number one. Just reminding myself of God’s plan, purpose and promise has helped me find comfort.

  8. Love the frame and cards! I recently used motivational cards to get ready for the labor and birth of our rainbow baby. Bringing a life into the world after losses is a scary endeavor. The card that has been most encouraging to me had the words “I can do this.” To me, that meant that I can deal with each moment as it comes. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when thinking about the heaviness of loss and the fear of going forward with new life.

  9. GirlMamaX5 says:

    I would love to have #1.
    The most encouraging thing for me is knowing my babies are on heaven with Jesus and I will get to see them again some day. Recently I was at a women’s conference at our church and the speaker, Sharon Betters, said we have to move from misery to seeing God’s mercy, to ministering to others. This has helped me keep looking forward for ways to bless others instead of looking back to wallow in misery.

  10. Shannon Sasseville says:

    I love the first 1! I am blessed to now have a wonderful support system with SGM. In my early grief I did not have a lot of good support or kind and supportive words.

    #2 encouraging words u r not alone

  12. Kristi Bodey says:

    Both are awesome! Beauty from ashes was a good one, and there are no footsteps to small to leave an imprint on our hearts!!

  13. Maggie Bleem says:

    I would love to win either. And any time someone mentions my sons name that is really uplifting to me to know they haven’t forgotten. Also the promise of eternity in heaven and talking about what that might be like.

  14. Kara Gerken says:

    I LOVE the first one. My comfort is knowing I am and always will be Aly-Gators Momma. The encouragment part is a little tougher and is just knowing that someday we will be reunited and until then I have my memories.

  15. #1 would be awesome!

  16. I’d love the frame. One of the most encouraging things I’ve been told was at my son’s memorial service, “I’ll remember Ezekiel with you.” What a sweet promise!

  17. I would love to win #2. Some of the nicest words people have said to me are I am thinking of you, I am praying for you, I am so very sorry for your loss, and just mentioning my daughter, Faith’s name. Also, giving me a hug is nice too.

  18. SARITA BOYETTE says:

    #1 is what I was drawn to. Looks like it has some comforting words that I need.

  19. Tarrah Bailey says:

    The best words were from my beaurevment duala who said “you are equipped to do this and help others through loss”

  20. Kirsten OLeary says:

    I’d like to enter for #1, I think the words that have helped the most are actually no words, from a friend who can relate to the situation and knows the power of silent companionship … it truly is one of the best gifts in a sea of talking and noise and a million thoughts after losing your child.

  21. Nneka Hall says:

    I would LOVE all of them as each speaks to a different stage in my grieving process.

  22. Julie Peck says:

    I would be honored to receive any of these beautiful items. And some words of encouragement are, no matter how far you fly ,you are always with me. Your beautiful memory stays tucked safely away in the deepest parts of my heart. Just a few things I have came up with and found comfort from. Also a big saying Fly high baby boy, until we meet again! Having some amazing and beautiful people tell me how strong of a person I am for not only getting through this ,but turning it into a positive thing to help others.

  23. Hazel Flint-Jones says:

    i would be honored to receive any of them they are wonderful

  24. Jill Sakowski says:

    I would love either one. Being told that my grief was as deep as my love helped me heal a lot, and it helped me understand what mothering a dead child was going to be: a different face of love. Every bit as strong, every bit as complicated, every bit as unique, as mothering any other child with love.
