I have never done this, but I’m so excited!
Today I’m sharing some of my favorite things with you. I’m also giving away one of those favorite things. Let’s start with the giveaway!
Primrosia Acrylic Paint Pens
One of my favorite things to do is to Bible journal. I love reading a scripture, studying it, and then bringing it to life in the pages of my Bible. Maybe it’s a verse. Maybe it’s a story. It’s important that my pens do not bleed through the pages. The Primrosia set is gorgeous. The colors are vivid and do not bleed. The tip of each pen is fine which allows you to sweep color across the page with precision. To all my journal sisters, you will love these!

Double-sided soft, fuzzy blanket
When I study, I love to curl up with my Bible, a favorite cup, my markers, and a warm, soft blanket. My grandkids love that I have a basket full of soft blankets. One of the issues I have with some blankets is that I’m long-legged so most are just too short. This blanket is the perfect length AND it’s double-sided, so I’m wrapped in cozy comfort no matter which way I toss it on the chair or couch. Check out this gorgeous blanket here.
Bath salts to help ease pain and promote sleep
I struggle with sleep. Sometimes that comes after a busy day where I’ve hiked or worked outside, and I ache. Taking a hot bath with bath salts designed to ease muscle aches AND help you sleep is the best medicine for me when that happens. I don’t care for perfumed salts, but do love this mixture of peppermint and eucalyptus essential oils. It soothes my skin and senses. Check out this natural brand here.
Prayer Starters: Talking with God about Hard Times
Why am I adding this? It’s because I’ve lived the pages of this book, and so are many of you. You are in a hard season, or have a friend who is there, and all you long to do is to tell God all the things on your heart. Those words can be hard to find, but the longing remains. Prayer Starters is grounded in scripture. Each prayer starter draws you to the truth of the Word and the truth that God is listening to every word you say, and every word you long to say.
Part prayer journal. Part power of the Word. Part creative connection with God. It’s unlike any other prayer book out there. It’s not a book about prayer, but a book that helps you connect with your Heavenly Father through prayer, right where you are. This is a perfect gift for you or a Christmas gift for a friend.
You can purchase this book for you or for a friend here.
Thanks for allowing me to share a few of my favorite things.

I love lighting a scented candle while I am studying God’s word. I clicked on the link for the markers. I would love to have a set that doesn’t bleed through the pages.
I also love candles. We are renting right now while we build a home, and candles aren’t allowed. I miss them so much!
Candles most likely have lots of chemicals that are very harmful. I found this out during my journey to find better health.
I have found diffusing Young Living Essential oils during my journaling time
is amazing and life-changing. Diffusing frankincense is a favorite that helps me in the process of listening and learning God’s Word. Can I help you get started?
I love Prayer Starters and the Primrosia set. Thank you for sharing this.
Thank you. : )
I love the Primrose markers. If I win I would give them to the local women’s shelter where I volunteer teaching Bible journaling as they are always in need of supplies.
I love all three items, but especially the Prayer Starters book. The markers look very interesting–I have done some Bible journaling and may start doing it again soon.
I love all of these. I journal and make art in my Bible so definitely interested in the pens that don’t bleed. I love the cozy blanket as I set and read my Bible and light a candle as well. Thank you for sharing Suzie. You bless my heart.
The book Prayer Starters is timely for me. I have one specific prayer request that I feel like I’m beating my head against a wall. Praying scripture back to the Lord is just what I need.
Father, she’s knocking on the door. She knows you hear her and are answering, even as it feels like no one is on the other side. You are faithful to hear us. You are faithful to work on our behalf, in accordance with your heart and will for us. I pray encouragement over Kay Lynn today. Meet her in that hard place. Let her know she is seen, heard, and loved like crazy.
Thank you for sharing 4 of your favorite things…they are inspiring, encouraging & motivating me!…the Prayer starter book is my favorite. I loved reading everyone’s comments too Thank you Suzanne & everyone here.
I love the blanket. I’m always looking for something to snuggle into. I have your book and love it and it’s at the top of the list for January. I need to finish other commitments.
I clicked on the markers. I love that they can be used on rocks, even! That’s neat.
I LOVE soft fuzzy blankets. Sometimes I just walk down the blanket aisle at Home Goods and touch all the blankets 🙂 I have gotten into the habit of going to bed early and waking up early. I love spending a quiet bit of time in the dark of early morning with my Bible, coffee and (this time of year) a warm soft blanket.
I’ve been going to bed a little earlier in this season as well. It may be the change of daylight savings time. It also may be that I just need to find a little more rest as my heart heals. : )
Hi Suzie and many thanks for your devotions! I often glean a new perspective from you and always find application of it!! I love to highlight and write in my Bible. A set of markers would be perfect for me. Thanking God for your ministry!
The markers would be nice and I have many blankets already because I always have one on top of me no matter the time of year. Your book has been a blessing at this season in my life. I feel hopeless because nothing satisfies my momma (health issues) and our daughter told is no contact with her anymore. Satan has definitively been attaching me personally lately. I am a daddy’s girl and he has Alzheimer’s.
Praying that your Heavenly Father is a safe place to rest your heart, sis.
I love the soft fuzzy blanket. It looks so soft and great price.
It is a good price. : ) Soft, fuzzy, and affordable. It’s a win!
I love both the cozy blanket and the markers for bible journaling. My favorite time of day is early morning before anyone gets up with a cup of coffee and reading one of my devotionals.
I can imagine it. Sitting with a cozy blanket, your Bible in your lap, the morning light splashing over you as you connect with God. I love that.
I received a soft blanket as a gift, not quite like this one, but I love it! They’re so cozy to snuggle under. 🙂 I read your last post, Susie, and I am so sorry for the loss of your brother. I am glad you were blessed to spend time with him, but it’s still tough. Love and blessings of strength and peace for the days ahead!
Thank you, Trudy. I miss him more than I can say. It’s been an up-and-down year. A long season of trust. I’m entering a place of intentional rest now, as my heart and body need it. Thank you for your kind words.
I would love the pens, they would be great for my underlining which I like to do all the time – no bleed pins would be great. I choose the soft fuzzy blanket to cuddle with to give extra comfort while reading my Bible and praying. Also I would love Prayer Starters – all of your books are very inspiring, encouraging, helpful, and comforting. Thanks for this fun giveaway. Prayers continue to go out to you’ll and your family. Be blest while preparing for Christmas, filled with His peace, comfort, love, and joy.
Thank you, Elsie. Grief comes when I least expect it. I’m so thankful that God is a safe place to wrestle through it, to be honest about it, and a sacred place to share it.
I love using color in my Bible and have yet to find one’s that are vivid AND don’t bleed through!
I hope these change that!
I like the ‘Prayer Starters’ I am definitely in some hard times and think this might be good for me. I didn’t purchase it immediately, but I have it bookmarked to look at later as I think it would be helpful to have something to make my prayers more meaningful and less repetitive
Father, I pray for Nancy today. I pray she feels encouraged, that she senses you so close. I pray that she knows that all the words she longs to say, and all the words she doesn’t even know how to say, are heard by you for you love, love, love her.
The blanket and the bath salts look wonderful. I already have Prayer Starters. I can always go to that book and find a prayer that speaks to my heart.
I love that, Karen. I pray it draws you even closer to God, who loves, loves, loves you.
Suzie, Thank you for all that you do for those of us that follow you. I would love another fuzzy blanket, because my dog adores them and LOVES to snuggle with me under the blanket.
Sending prayers to you and your family in this time of grief. Just remember to take it One Day at a Time and God will always be there with you. You are an inspiration and provide so much encouragement in times of challenges. In His Service, Linda
My cat always climbs in my lap and shares the blanket. : )
Thank you so much for sharing your heart and your favorites! I never knew there were markers that didn’t bleed through pages. And my daughter loves squishy soft blankies so I put one in my cart to get her for Christmas along with your beautiful new book…for me. I look forward to it helping me during a currently difficult health journey with my son. <3
You will always find me under a blanket at night! I’m so cold natured! My kids keep stealing mine! 😒 You will also find me in fuzzy socks at night!!
Ooh lala that blanket!! I have asded to cart lol!! Thank you for sharing your favorite things Suzie! I am praying for you and your family. Thank you for sharing the sweet stories and memories of your brother. It has helped me to be more intentional with my loved ones! Hugs!
I love these to use in. my bible, I hate it when it bleeds through.
I’m intrigued by the relaxation bath salts, not for myself but I’d gift it to a dear friend whose husband of 50 years died recently. They had walked through more horrifyingly dark times than I can imagine, yet remained faithful to their God and a very public witness to His faithfulness throughout. More info available, but not on a public site. Thank you for the ah-ha perfect gift idea.
Hi Suzi! I want to extend my condolences on the loss of your brother. As Christians we don’t have sorrow without hope! Hallelujah we will be reunited with loved ones again. I have your prayer starter book and am enjoying it very much. I love all your recommendations here on this page, especially the markers and bath salts. I love the blanket as well and have amassed a nice collection of them myself. Love to cuddle up and read the Bible and Prayer Starter and journaling.
Thank you for your inspiration with your writings and books and Facebook posts. God’s blessings!! ❤️🙏✝️
I too struggle with sleep, almost 16 years now and I have tried several different suggestions. I am going to try the Bath Soak. I have purchased your Prayer Starters book and it has been a blessing to me. Also reading your book The Mended Heart, praying for healing in my heart. Thank you for ministering to women.
Having markers that don’t bleed through are so wonderful! The bath salts sound divine.
I love the idea of lighting this candle beside me each morning during my time with the Lord!! I’ve not done that but several people tell me it’s a calming practice.
Ooh…I can’t decide between the blanket and the prayer starters book! The blanket sounds like it feels great on each side…and I imagine it being the perfect cozy accompaniment to praying along with the book prompts!
I would love to win any of the prizes but especially the paint pens.
Those pens look great! And I checked out your book – would love to have a copy of it! I’ll put it on my Christmas list 😉. Thanks for the opportunity and for sharing your favs! God bless!
I’m drawn to the bath salts, thinking of a friend who struggles with sleep. Perhaps this could be a good gift for her.
Hard to choose, I think the Essential Oil Soak would be Heavenly for some self care while reading your book with a candle lit. 🥰
I love all of these great ideas. God has recently been calling me back to a particular prayer spot, and Im loving it! I’d love to try the gel pens and I have the blanket in my cart for a Christmas gift! Merry Chrisas, Suzanne, and thank you for encouraging me on my journey!

Here’s a little more about my amazing prayer spot “field trip”!
I love the soft blanket and the Prayer Starters book. They are “ match made in Heaven.”
Purchased a super soft fuzzy blanket a few years ago and it improved the quality of sleep for my husband and I to the point where he jokingly referred to it as “the power of The Blankie” when trying to explain to our kids why we loved it so much.
That blanket looks amazing! I may actually purchase a couple for Christmas presents. My sister is tall and often complains that the blankets aren’t long enough.
From one long-legged girl to another, I understand your sister’s complaint. : )
Goodness – the blanket looks so cozy for morning devotions … the pens I’ve never seen before!
What fun to join in the giveaway- thank you Suzie ♥️
Good Evening, the Acrylic paint pens are the best.
I love soft blankets. I am disabled. I am currently waiting for an electric wheelchair. My legs are always cold. I sit in the kitchen at the table wrapped up with a blanket around my legs. The prayer starter is also a fabulous thing. My Mom is in Hospice care. She has developed pneumonia over the weekend. They started antibiotics today. She is coherent today. She knew who I was over the telephone. I have low immunity too. I am not able to get to she her as often as I would like too, but we talk on the phone. I am an only child of divorced parents. Please keep us in your prayers as we walk through this path. I know the Lord is with us both. Holding us tightly on the journey. God bless you.
Father, I know how hard it is to have a loved on in hospice. I pray for comfort. I pray for connection with her mom. I pray your presence be oh-so-close.
I love blankets when reading as well. I have a reading chair and my favorite blanket stay there. I also like a cup of coffee while sitting there and reading. My other favorite place to sit os on back porch during a rainstorm
I love a good rainstorm. : )
You have some amazing favorites! I love snuggling up in my recliner with a comfy blanket and my pup with my bible or another book. I’m also long legged and struggle finding the perfect blanket. I haven’t tried journaling but who doesn’t love new pens? I loved Prayer Starters and keep going back to your book. Such an amazing resource and gift!
I love the thought of your double-sided soft, fuzzy blanket! It’s so cozy to disappear into such a blanket AND it is beautiful!
Thanks for sharing some of your favorite things!
I love the blanket because my girls and I love to snuggle on the couch. Cozy blankets are so nice to have when snuggling! Thank you for the opportunity to win the pens! I enjoy hand lettering and these would be well-loved!
I’m trying to learn hand lettering!
The colors of the paint pens are beautiful! I looked at the book, and it sounds just like something that I need.
They Are All Lovely!!! What A Sweet Giveaway!
Thank you Suzie for sharing so much love with us. I love all of those things that are some of your favorites.
I love my prayer starters that you wrote. In fact I was praying with it early this morning. I myself am in a hard season. I recently had a stroke and am recovering ❤️🩹 well from it.
God has done amazing and wonderful things through my situation.
He is such a good and loving Heavenly Father, even amidst our hard places.
I am praying for you Suzie as the Lord continues to heal your hurting places in the season you are in.
My sincerest condolences to you with reading g your post about your dear brother graduating into Heaven with Jesus. May the Lord hug you even tighter today as you heal each day Suzie. ❤️
If I had to pick one of your favorites.. I’d have to say the acrylic paint pens as I love to journal as I spend time with the Lord in the Word.
Much Love and Blessings ~
Denise G. ❤️
Oh Denise, I’m so glad you are recovering. Praying complete healing over you.
I love the Prayer Starters book. I also love the blanket,but living in Florida I’m afraid I wouldn’t get to use it much!
The pens are beautiful – and you can paint on almost anything. Love the painted rocks. Thanks for sharing.
My mom loves to paint on rocks and we have some that feel like heirlooms. : ) My rock painting is far beneath her talent, but I still love doing it with my grandchildren.
Never heard of these pens before! Are they similar to Posca pens? Love all of your favorite things list. I am very sorry for the loss of your brother. Prayers for you and your family.
I’m not sure, Gail, but I know they are really nice. And thank you. My heart is hurting and healing.
