Comfort Crosses Review and Giveaway CLOSED

I think we lose sight at what we are actually celebrating, when it comes to certain holidays. Which is why amongst my candy riddled post I would also like to share with you a special company I came across, Comfort Crosses. Another beautiful and personal item just right for Easter, and for many other reasons.

What are comfort crosses?
Comfort Crosses are individually carved from a single unique piece of beautifully grained olive wood pruned from the olive trees around Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus. Christians have been carving crosses like this for hundreds of years, originally for pilgrims and more recently tourists visiting the Holy Land. Each craftsman receives a fair price to support their family and Christian community. The Comfort Cross is designed to fit comfortably into the palm of your hand as an aid to prayer or meditation. Ideal as your spiritual companion for easing children's fears, comforting worries and stresses of adults and focusing the prayer of the sick and elderly.

These crosses are truly unique from one another and are something I found comfort in, the second it was grasped in my palm. Beautifully hand crafted, and truly made for the comfort of gripping in your hand for a perfect fit, for prayer, or times of need. This unique cross comes in a keep safe bag and truly would make a great gift for someone in their time of need, or comfort. As well as a possible addition to a child's Easter Basket in aid for teaching the reason for the season, so to say. It would also be something they could treasure and find peace in for years to come. Here is a beautiful way to use your comfort Cross provided from their website: "I hold my cross for nightly prayer then hold it while I fall asleep to ease my worries", child age 9.

Buy It: Comfort Crosses make a wonderful gift to say "thanks" or "I care" to your pastors, priests, bible study groups, prayer groups or any family member or friend in need of a little boost in faith. All Comfort Crosses are imported directly from the Holy Land and are available for 6.00 each which includes; Comfort Cross, Gift and Informational Card and Velveteen Gift bag form
