Christus Statue Giveaway

My wonderful readers, I have something so exciting to giveaway today!  But first I must tell you about something so important to me.  Twice a year I take the first weekend off in April and October and I listen to the General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  The conference is held in Salt Lake City, Utah but anyone can watch or listen to it via the internet, radio, or television.  From this conference I learn how to better my life, how to make good choices, how to parent with love.  I also learn about Jesus Christ and His gospel.  I learn about my own worth as a child of God.  I feel peace.  I feel joy.  And I feel a closeness to my family and my Heavenly Father.  So if this is something you are looking for, I invite you to join me by watching {HERE} on October 5th and 6th.  Listen to just a few minutes or a whole session if you like.  See how it changes your life like it has changed mine.


  Now onto our GIVEAWAY!!! My friend Phyllisa runs an online shop called On The Apricot Tree.  And today she is giving away a free 10 inch Cultured Marble Christus Statue (a $45.00 value!).  I have one of these beautiful statues in my home.  It's on the piano as you walk into my house and it just brings such a sense of peace to the whole room.  No matter what religion you are, Christians everywhere will adore having a piece like this in their home.


"Thorvaldsen’s sculpture, depicting Christ, was one of his most popular works. It was originally ordered by Slotsbygningskommissionen (the commission for building castles) to stand in the Castle Church at Christiansborg Palace, but later – while Thorvaldsen was in Copenhagen in 1819-20 – it was decided to instead place it in the apsis, the southernmost end, of Vor Frue Kirke (the Church of Our Lady) by the high alter. Later the statue was copied in numerous casts and different sizes and was placed in the houses of worship of several different religions in the U.S. and Europe. In a smaller size it could also be found in several Danish village churches. The sculpture depicts the resurrected Christ revealing himself to the congregation with marks on his hands and feet from the crucifixion."


You can visit this large one in Salt Lake City, UT.  So beautiful.
