Free Friday Giveaway....GIVEAWAY!


"Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to me;
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14
Sage green minky dot lamb with smooth light yellow minky face and inner ear.

"In everything I showed you that by working hard in this manner you must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.' "

In honor of our first official month of Give a Blessing, I encourage you all to give! This week our giveaway is meant to be given away! You will be entering to win this lamb to give it away to someone else. Someone who the Lord lays on your heart that lives outside of your household. Simply leave a comment under this post stating who you would like to give this blessing to and why you have chosen to give it to them. You may enter Friday-Sunday and I will draw the winner on Monday. I will contact you for the address of your chosen recipient and I will send them their little lamb including a message from you. (You must follow the rules to be qualified)

In the spirit of giving I encourage all of you to give to our little Janessa who is the Sept. Give a Blessing recipient! Baby be Blessed does not make one penny from the T-shirt sales or take a percentage from any of the donations directed towards her cause. We simply want to help in anyway we can! If you are unable to help financially, please help by praying for little Janessa and please pass the word to those around you who can also pray and maybe financially help this sweet baby! By teaming up together we can make a difference!!

We all have something to offer. I don't deserve what the Lord has given me. I am beyond words as to how thankful I am for what I have and what I can give! Even the very toughest points of my life in which I asked "why?", I reflect back to that time and just say thank you! It was those tough times that has molded me into who and what I am today. It will be those future tough times that will continue to mold me into what I should be and strive to become. But in this very moment of where I am...what can I do to make a difference? What can I give? Maybe it is just my time or a kind word of encouragement. It's simply making the choice daily to follow His leading. ~Tina

Hi Tina!
I would love to give this little lamb away to a new baby cousin in my family, Jamey. He's almost 2 months old now and I'd love to share how important God's Word is with this new precious little boy! It should be the foundation of everything we do. Thanks!

Love the idea of giving away to give away. Should I be the winner I would love to give this little lamb to a friend of mine who is heading to Guatemala to help in some orphanages there. I am sure that there is an orphan who would love this little lamb.

I too would love to win this beautiful lamb. I have a dear friend who has stuggled with fertility for several years. She is now a month away from giving birth to a baby girl. It would be such a special reminder of God's blessings.

Hi Tina,

I would choose to give this lamb to Noah and Julie Roberts, parents of Magdalena Grace who has Trisomy 18. She has been with them for about 4 weeks, every day they are sharing with her is a blessing. I do not know them personally but I am sure they would love this lamb for their daughter.

IF we win this lamb She will be given to a little girl who a year ago yesterday came into to the world as was not suppose to make it one day. Because our Lord is a wonderful "doctor" Bethany Byron turned one on Sept. 4th. We want her to have this special lamb and are so grateful to be sharing her special birthday with her. We look forward to many, many more. Thank you for your ministry, what a true blessing you all are.

My cousin and his wife are a young couple expecting a baby. She is in med school and I know she is very worried about how she will handle being a first-time mom while while studying and going to class. I would love to bring their new baby this precious lamb when he is born in just a few days! It is just so sweet!

Hi I was reading the comments and i saw what Jen said. I had a baby with trisomey 18 she was with us for the shortest of times but enriched our live for ever just knowing her. If i won i would love for her to give it to them. I love that these comments are filled with giving.

I would love to give this lamb to a friend who lives in California and just had her 2nd boy. She is there without family and friends and is having a stuggle with life right now. I think this would be a wonderful surprise for her and her new little boy.
I just ordered 2 dolls for my family and cannot wait to see them!

I have someone special in mind to give this too if I win! Either it's going to my sister who is having her first daughter next week or to a close friend of my husband whom is having her first daughter in January!

Nancy said...

Hi Tina- Great idea! I would love to give this lamb to Natalie. My girlfriend and her husband struggled with fertility and a 13th hour failed adoption, then just weeks later the news of Natalie. Each day we praise God for such miracles! She is such a blessing!

Hi I would give it a friend that is a true blessing to our family. We are currently trying to adopt our foster child (we are unable to have our own). She has been there for us through thick and thin. When we received some bad news on the case she dropped what she was doing and made a trip over just to give me a hug, while my husband was at work. (As I type this, I am tearing up) She is truly a blessing to our family.

What a sweet idea. I would love to give this lamb to my little cousin who is 3 (almost 4), Hunter. She lost her Mommy 3 weeks ago today. Her Mommy (my 1st cousin's wife) was diagnosed with stage 4 rectal cancer 2 1/2 years ago. She fought it with all she had for her 3 children (Hunter is the baby, she has an older sister and an older brother) and her husband. Hunter was just 1 1/2 years old when her Mommy was diagnosed. So basically, her Mommy has been sick most of her little life. Her death has been truly heartbreaking, and when you see these precious children she left behind, it is almost too much to bear.

Thank you for your kindness and your generosity!

Hi Tina,

I would love to give this lamb to my nephew who has just left for Iraq. He is in the National Guard. It would be nice if he could give this lamb to a child there.

Hi Tina,
Your creations are so wonderful.I work in a nursing home with Alzheimer's patients and have one that would just love this little lamb to love. This is a wonderful gift you have and a great way to pass god's love along.

So is it weird if I would like to send this bunny to the principal at my son's Christian school? The scripture is perfect for her and being that her husband died just two weeks ago I think she would cherish a special little something to give a squeeze when she is feeling down. Thanks for the consideration and for your HUGE giving and loving heart!

Lorie said...

And, I forgot to mention that both the principal and her husband were/are 34 and they have a beautiful 7 year old girl.

Natalie B said...

This is the most exciting give away ever! If I were to win I would give this doll to a co-worker who lost her baby at full term. One day the movement stopped and was told her baby had died. I felt so said as I was off at the time with my new baby girl. To see her at her baby girls funeral was heart breaking. She is not a Christian and I would love to share this with her.

What a sweet little lamb! I have several ideas of who I would give this too. One possibility is a friend who is ill and is being forced to retire...she collects lambs. Another is a friend's daughter who is expecting twins, or my neighbor's sweet little Guataprincess.

I would be so happy to give this little lamb away! I have a wonderful friend, Kristen, who is getting ready to have a baby boy, Jack, who has multiple problems. We are praying that he will survive the delivery. I know that this lamb would be a blessing to them. Thank you for the opportunity to bless our friends!

As I read the other comments, I feel so blessed that all the little children in my life are healthy, but I do have a special little one to give this lamb to. His name is Zach and he was born on the 2nd so he is just days old. Zach's mother was once told that she would be unable to have children without the help of fertility drugs. She opted to continue to have faith and Zach is her second son. I would love to send Zach this little lamb.

teeto2 said...

What a wonderful idea-I had such a hard time deciding who I would want to have such a precious gift, but I decided on my girlfriend Sarah as she is trying to have a baby and it would be a blessing to give her this blessed gift.

Your words are so inspiring they just make me want to do so much more and to remember to take the time to always thank the lord..even in those hard times. I have this beautiful niece,Alyssa, who I would love to give this doll to. Her parents recently lost their jobs and can't buy any extras right now. So I have had it in my heart for a while now to give her one. Thank you again for your beautiful uplifting words Tina.

If I win this precious lamb, I would like to give it to a family who just lost their dear sweet 22 month old daughter. I do not know this family personally but have been following her CaringBridge blog for a while now. They have been through so much with the decisions they had to make and the message on this lamb says it all " Let the children alone, and do not HINDER them from coming to me;" . They have struggled with what they should do. Again, i do not know this family--only from reading her blog. I would love to give her mom this precious lamb to hold to know that their sweet angel is now in Gods arms.

I would choose to give this gift to a little girl named Diana who lives in Mexico. My 12 year old daughter, Kennedy, and I went to a Building 429 concert this summer and decided to sign up as sponsors for a child. We were able to select a child from a group of packets in the lobby. Kennedy chose Diana because she was born only three days befor our Sophie Rose. (They are both now four) I received my first letter from Diana yesterday, she traced her hand and drew the members of her family on each finger. She has a mom, dad, and two sisters. Sophie put her hand on top of the hand print and said, "It's just like my hand." Diana's family is extremely poor, and struggle though each day. We support them with a monthly gift through World Vision. Her picture is the only photo on our refrigerator, and I just love her little face and hope great things for her...I pray for her family every day. Such a gift would bring great and endless joy to a little girl living in such uncertainty.

Thank you! Barb Gaffney

Hi Tina,

This would be the perfect gift for my good friend Raeko who is expecting a little boy anytime now. I really miss her and I wish I could be there in Virginia to be a support for her. I'll be waiting for that phone call to ask for her address.

Oh that lamb is so cute I would love to give her to a friend that has just had a baby girl. They will be leaving the country in a couple of months to be missionaries in south america. I think this lamb would be a great encouragement to them.

I would love to win this for my beautiful granddaughter Alyssa. I know she would just love one of these dolls. I have been taking her to church to teach her about the word of the lord. So this one would be perfect. Thanks for the chance to give away such a special doll.

I would give this lamb to my 10 year old niece. Her Mother and Father are going through a divorce and she has not seen her father in a few months. I think this lamb would be a blessing for her!

I would love to win this Lamb and give it to my friend who should be having her baby girl anyday. I do not think that her mothers are to religious and I would like to have this as a seed to plant early on in her precious life!

This is a great idea. If I won this cute little lamb I would give it to my friend Rebecca's 7 month old daughter Lyla Jane. Rebecca and Lyla have just moved out of an abusive relationship with Lyla's father. I would love to share a prayer of protection and love over Lyla and this lamb would be a wonderful way of doing that. Thanks so much for all you do! Amy autumnrayne31@hotmail.com

This is such a beautiful idea!

I can't think of anyone who needs this, so I'm not entering, but I wanted to tell you how much this post motivated me to working on my own giving spirit.

Monica said...

Wow! What a SUPER idea! I'd love to give this week's lamb to a baby that was diagnosed with dwarfism. (It's my friend's daughter's friend) The baby was born 2 months early and has had numerous surgeries already. My friend was just telling me last week about the diagnosis and it just broke my heart what this family is going through.
