Throughout the insecurity and unpredictability of 2020, I carried this cross in my purse in a little pouch with other anti-anxiety helps (I refer to the pouch as my "freak-out bag"). It's a lovely grounding tool, a comfort to hold, and a sweet reminder of the ever-present Christ even when the world feels topsy-turvy.
I use this daily. Much like a rubbing stone, it has come into my hands as a way to calm myself, find patience, seek love for my kids and really just restructure my behaviors and anxieties. I have 4-5 around the house and I keep one in my purse. My kids also use them when they are struggling.
The ability to reach out and touch something, hold something, aids in refocusing and breathing deeply.
I leave this little cross in my pocket, and it helps me to refocus my day. Any time I slip my hand in my pocket, I am reminded to recenter my thoughts and actions on God. It is small enough to fit in your pocket and the shape and smoothness makes it easy to hold.
I love using this cross as a fidget tool when having conversations with young people who engage so much better when their hands are busy. It is beautifully carved and I love the faint scent of olive.
I wasn't expecting much, it's just a wooden cross, but I thought it would be neat to place on a side table as a sort of curiosity. But I found that sometimes when I am especially worried or contemplative, I enjoy picking it up to hold and touch while I'm praying. I can fidget with it as I form my prayer and it provides a sense of comfort that as I am turning it over in my hands, I am literally turning it over to god with my prayer, and that he understands my worry and participates in the solution with me. One of those purchases you love way more than you knew you needed. Yay!!
I love this print, which hangs above my coffee station in my kitchen! It is a beautiful, high-quality print.
I have the liturgy for morning coffee print, and it is such a lovely thing to see every morning. I had a spare frame that I put it in, and you can see it is clearly high quality (even without the frame). Highly recommend these prints for anyone who might need a little mindfulness in the "everyday" parts of life!
This looks very nice and is well made. Framed and hung it fits in with a lot of different styles.
I have purchased these several times as gifts for friends and family, and they are well-loved! Beautiful and meaningful. I plan to purchase more in the future.
Recipient loved it. I appreciated the ability to include a gift note!
I have a wall display where I place a ceramic cross and a little box that I keep mementos and it has a horizontal bar underneath the shelf. I am not sure what it's really for, but when I saw these towels I finally realized what I could hang there. I got the "Come Thou Fount" one to start with and am loving it, I plan on collecting others so I can change them out with the seasons.
