Hey guys! So today I’m reviewing my April Faithbox! It is a monthly subscription service that “inspires daily Christian living by helping you grow in your faith, impact your community, and discover meaningful products from companies that do good.” They pack each box with a monthly devotional, hand-picked items from Godly centered organizations and companies, and each box provides THREE MEALS (sometimes more!) for hungry kids through their Rice Bowls partnership! SO COOL! I think Jesus would definitely approve.

So the above picture is what the box looks like when it’s delivered, with your address information on the opposite side. Here’s what the side of the box looks like:

How cool is it that they have Scripture right on the box for the whole world to see! (Or maybe just the postal service, but still!)

Here’s my box opened up! Coffee is the best thing to douse the sunrise with.-3 The most exciting part! It’s packed with so many awesome things!

This month’s theme was Resurrection! Their words directly, “Resurrection is the promise of life after death, the hope that God is making all things new, and He is reconciling all things unto Himself. Living a life informed by resurrection means seeing things not as they are, but as they could be – as they should be. Even though this earth is imperfect, we are still called to care for it as good stewards of God’s creation.”

This is one of my FAVORITE topics because I think it is SO important! A lot of people think that global warming isn’t real, that littering is okay since there are trash collectors, that pollution isn’t a big deal, that recycling doesn’t really do much, and things of the sort. It makes me so sad to think that God gave us a beautiful earth and we abuse it! While God gave us the earth to use and live off of (Genesis 1:26-31), He didn’t give it to us to use to its disposal and until it’s depleted completely! I love that this month is all about being earth conscience! And what a perfect day to review it on: EARTH DAY!

My contents included:

RuMe tote bag- holds up to 50 pounds and makes a great alternative to plastic bags at the grocery store! I have used this several times since receiving it! Much easier than collecting a bunch of plastic or brown paper bags and not knowing what to do with them after! http://www.myrume.com

KUTOA Blueberry Almond Bar- Ingredients: natural antioxidants, blueberries soaked in apple juice and sunflower oil, Kutoa, raw almonds, fresh oats, and pea crisps. For every bar you buy, KUTOA donates a meal to a child in need with the partnership World Food Program USA! I have to admit, this was not my most favorite energy bar. It could have just been the flavor and I’m also weird about certain foods, so definitely try it at least once if only to help the charity! http://www.kutoa.com

Lifter Music Sample- this CD has 5 songs on it to listen to whenever you need a lift! (did you get the play on words there?) Third Day -Your Words, I Am They- Make  A Way, Matt Maher- Abide with Me, Tim Timmons- Everywhere I Go, and bonus song* Casting Crowns- Everywhere I Go. This mix is so awesome! http://www.providentlabelgroup.com

Shaklee Super Cleaning Concentrate- this is a cleaner that is safe for you, your home, and your earth! Say goodbye to harsh chemicals! This is a super concentrated cleanser so that you will be using less of it to clean more! The more uses from one bottle means less bottles in a landfill! Proceeds go to benefit to Shaklee Cares which is a publicly supported nonprofit organization that helps people directly affected by natural disasters and emergencies. This cleaning product works like a dream! http://www.myearth.myshaklee.com

Renew Water Bottle- I LOVE a good water bottle! Nearly 90% of plastic water bottles are not recycled and take THOUSANDS of years to decompose, THOUSANDS PEOPLE! A reusable water bottle is such a great alternative for the environment! I love this thing! Perfect size to stay hydrated all day! http://www.faithbox.com

They also sent a instagram type layout for you to take a picture of your favorite spot in nature! So up above you could see that I took a picture of my hammock in my backyard! It’s not in the forest somewhere or anything like that, but it’s my favorite spot right now, and with the warmer weather arriving it just feels so good to lay out there in the afternoon!
