If you’re interested in discovering and learning more about various christian brands that you might not’ve known prior, sign up for email updates to be the first to know when one drops!
Today’s Christian Brand is TheDailyGraceCo. You can find them at their website, TheDailyGraceCo.com and on Instagram @TheDailyGraceCo. TheDailyGraceCo. was founded by Kristin Schmucker and her husband and started at their kitchen table. TheDailyGraceCo. has a vast assortment of Bibles, Bible studies, stationary, pens, highlighters and other products to help christian women dive deeper into the word. They even have their own quarterly magazine with a reasonable subscription.

Now for the exciting part!
Just a quick disclaimer before I get started, you should know that this post is in no way sponsored and all opinions are purely my own. However, I have been given an awesome opportunity to be an affiliate and any purchases made through the links below will help support me at no additional cost to you.
I am OBSESSED with this company.
I kid you not, I am on their website daily! If you sign up for their email newsletter, there is a new sale almost daily! They have the option to add things to a wish list, which is perfect because I find that a lot of the things that I have my eyes on go on sale soon thereafter.
I made my first purchase on March 21st and I thought why not do a giveaway?! So I’ll list the products below that I have purchased as well as the information for a giveaway! So keep your eyes peeled for that!
Here is everything I got in totality, I’ll go into further detail about each individual product below!

Be Still Journal – Gray Linen [GIVEAWAY]
The Be Still Journal is a guided journal designed for intentional Bible Study. I don’t know about you, but before this journal, I had no idea how to study the Bible. I would read the chapter and then go on with my day. I wouldn’t stop to take time to really dwell on what I read and therefore, I would most likely forget the verse all together. With this journal, you are guided with 4 main sections. Be Still, Abide, Adore, and Apply. In the Be Still section, you write your Bible verse(s) in it’s entirety and then you write down the takeaways you got from reading the verse(s). These could be clarifications of words you had trouble understanding or just paraphrasing the verse(s) in your own words. I like to do both. Next, in the Adore section, you reflect on what you learned about God by reading that verse(s). Lastly, the Apply section is the section where you write down how you can apply the verse(s) to/in your life. This section is so powerful because instead of just reading the verse and moving on, I can apply it to my life and be mindful throughout my day about those applications.
Verdict: I really like the material (and the color!) and it’s lay flat design! I also I love that the book has a ‘preview’ page to help you understand how to use it properly. 10/10 recommend.

Prayer Journal – Pink Linen [GIVEAWAY]
The Prayer Journal is a guided journal designed to bring you closer to the Lord in prayer. This journal will help you to become more intentional with your time in the presence of the Lord. Once again, without something like this, I have a tendency to go a-wall with my prayers. One thing I really strive for is to spend more time with the Lord in prayer. It seems like I say a quick prayer for myself and for the individuals on my prayer list and call it a day. Coming to the Lord in prayer is essentially how you keep up your relationship with him. The time you put in is equivalent to the results you get back. If you feel like nothing is moving in your life, it’s possible that you’re not putting enough effort into your relationship. The Lord is always there waiting to spend time with you and he has all the time in the world. It’s up to us to be intentional with our time to build our relationship with the Lord. This journal does just that.
Like the Be Still Journal, this journal is broken up into categories. “Daily sections include Adoration, Confession, Sanctification (formerly titled “make me more like you,”) On My Heart, and Verse I am Praying. The journal also includes a section for how to use the journal.” – TheDailyGraceCo.com
Verdict: I have yet to try this journal out mainly because I am choosing to focus on how I study the Bible and being more mindful of what I read. But now that I have it, I am very excited to try it out in the months to come! Again, I love the material (and the color) and this journal, like the Be Still journal has a flat lay design so it’s a win win for me.
Since I haven’t tried this product personally, click HERE to read the glowing reviews to see if this journal is for you.

Be Still Magazine – Issue 7
The Be Still Magazine is a magazine put together by TheDailyGraceCo with articles submitted from everyday christians like you or I! The Magazine is 8.5×11 in size and “this coffee table quality magazine is filled with articles to encourage you and point your heart to the Lord.” – TheDailyGraceCo.com
A new issue of the Be Still Magazine is released quarterly and is filled with the highest quality paper, prints and articles making the experience truly unique.
I personally have never had the pleasure of experiencing a Christian magazine. The only magazines I’ve ever read are teenvogue, seventeen, and like J-14 (a looooong time ago might I add) so when I saw this, I HAD to have it. You can purchase the magazines as they come out (quarterly) for $18 or you can sign up for the subscription for only $14. The $14 fee for the subscription will be deducted from your payment method of choice once those issues are made available and it will be immediately shipped to you.
Verdict: I LOVE THIS. I mentioned a bit above why I loved it so much but theres nothing like that feeling of having a super high quality magazine filled with articles written by everyday christian women. It truly makes me want to bundle up in a warm blanket with fuzzy socks and a nice warm cup of hot cocoa. I should also mention that I bought the monthly subscription.

The Bible Highlighters come in a pack of six gel colors and are designed to prevent bleeding through even the thinest of pages!
I’m not going to lie, I had no idea what gel highlighters were, I had never even heard of them. When I purchased these highlighters, I honestly didn’t even know they were gel. I was just super excited to find TheDailyGraceCo, I just wanted everything I laid my eyes on. So you can imagine my surprise when I uncapped these for the first time. It was weird, at first to highlight with these in my Bible but I have come to absolutely adore these highlighters. They don’t bleed just like the website claims and they also come with a nifty little note card with highlighting tips and a color coding system! I love extra little things like that.
Verdict: Ya’ll these are worth it. I could just be a newb when it comes to Bible highlighters but ya’ll these are the real deal. Plus each highlighter has a cute saying on it like: “Loved, Blessed, Chosen, etc.” HOW CUTE?!
