(in)courage John 3:16 Heart and Globe Wall Hanging and a Giveaway!!

I was thrilled to be chosen to review a product from (in)courage! (If you've never visited their page then you should do that now but come back here!)

I received a beautiful wall hanging (that I have been wanting for a while). This inspirational Heart and Globe Canvas print, based on John 3:16, was inspired by a young girl and is a beautiful expression of God's great love for us.

This hand-stretched gallery wrapped canvas print is printed on high quality canvas and proudly made in the USA.

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Product Details:
*Size: 16" W x 20" H x 1.5" D
*Made in the USA

History of the picture
Madison Atwood is a disabled 11-year old girl. For Christmas 2006, Madison's mom decided that Madison would paint a picture of a heart as a gift for her dad. An artist friend, Holly, outlined a heart in pencil. She gave Madison the paint brush (one color at a time) and Madison started to trace the outline in lots of bright colors. When Holly gave Madison the turquoise colored brush, she turned her back for a second and Madison colored a big circle over the heart! They initially thought the painting was ruined. But as they looked a little closer, it became clear that the big blob was the globe, and the whole image was an example of how big God's love is for our world.

Madison's Big Heart, Little Globe became the inspiration for the John 3:16 Heart and Globe print. Now, when Madison sees her picture, she says, "Our world is so small but God's love is so BIG!" What a wonderful reminder!

Really, these pictures do not do this wall hanging justice. As soon as I opened the box, I found a place to hang it on my wall. I love seeing it every morning as I head to get my coffee and as I walk out of my kitchen to start my day in the world. You can purchase the picture by clicking here. One's on sale this month! (And it's worth every dime, on sale or not.) They have a few other pictures that I am putting on my wish list.
