Merry, Merry: Emmanuel Concepts
Smarties, do you believe in the power of prayer? We do and Arden Brewer believes in the power of prayer, too. She started making these beautiful hand-held clay crosses to comfort friends and family in times of need and that is how Emmanuel Concepts was born. It is such a beautiful concept we couldn’t wait to share it with you.
Creating this cross is my prayer. A prayer that it will find the hand of someone who need to know, “God is with you.” ~ Arden Brewer
Emmanuel Concepts is is a faith-based gifts and services company designed to highlight the ways to experience Emmanuel in our every day. Artist and Originator, Arden Brewer, uses her gifts to show the community how knowing “God With Us” in all things, can impact our lives and hearts in unexpected ways.
The Emmanuel Concepts Giveaway: Emmanuel Cross
Artist Made One-of-a-Kind Hand-Held Cross
The Emmanuel Cross is a one-of-a-kind hand-held cross. Most often held during prayer, I have heard from many people who fall asleep with it in their hands saying that it provides comfort while so easily fitting into their palm. The Emmanuel Cross is also decorative. A dear friend mentioned that she placed one of hers on top of some reading material as a reminder to pray. Another mentioned that he placed one on a front entry table to remind him to pray as he entered his home.
These crosses are molded of hand-made polymer clays. They are carefully cured. Next, layers of delicate gold guilding are added, all to create a uniquely distinctive piece. Cling to this cross as a reminder God is always with you and He never leaves. May this Emmanuel Cross be a source of comfort, peace and direction.
One lucky smarty will win the Emmanuel Cross.
