    My glow comes from snuggling with my 3 month old daughter…from ignoring the laundry just so I can watch her excitedly try to stuff both of her fists into her mouth…from looking into her big blue eyes while we share a conversation of cackling and baby coos. She absolutely lit up my life in a way I never imagined was possible.

  30. Melanie says:

Through everything He’s also deepened my love for and appreciation of my husband.God’s faithfulness makes me glow!

    Ever since I gave birth in May, I have felt as if my clothes don’t fit. Through giving my baby breastmilk, I lost all my baby weight plus some and since I feel money is an issue, I never bought new jeans that fit. Yesterday my hubby took our 6 month old out to give me a little break time and he came back with two pairs of new jeans that actually fit me! It was the sweetest thing…that makes me glow. I am blessed to be loved by him,

  82. Emily says:

    I’m glowing today with the realization that even though yesterday was really, really tough, I get to start all over again today – how awesome is that? Last night as I was tucking my son in I told him “tomorrow will be better” and I have no doubt that it will be.

    I am glowing today because it was a good mommy morning. My 3 kids were helpful and polite. They didn’t fight with each other, no one was teasing, no milk or cereal was spilled on the floor. The hats and mittens were laid out, and the backpacks were ready to go. We made it to the bus stop with several minutes to spare. Only 1 out of the 3 brushed their teeth, but I had time to give them big hugs and kisses and tell them I loved them so much before work. That is a perfect morning for me. And it doesn’t happen too often!

  212. Marisa says:

    Love the lanterns–such a beautiful idea, Lisa. I saw them and my thoughts went to my daughter. We hung lovely paper lanterns above her crib. I think our Maggie would have loved looking up at them. I am missing her today…she is Home with the Lord. My little boys, my husband and the HOPE of being with our Maggie Girl for eternity, they help to keep this little light of mine from flickering out.

    Each of us has a glow … a lantern … within our heart. It’s the light of divinity, of a higher consciousness, of God, that radiates in your spirit, pure and true. Sometimes the light gets obscured by regrets of the past, or fear of the future but under it all that light never grows dim.

    Treasure this radiant light … polish up your lantern … with every breath and beat of your heart. Let your heart shine on those around you.

    Lisa, you make us glow everyday by sharing!

  310. Why am I glowing today? Well to be honest I hadn’t been glowing much which is a shame because I have something within me that should be shining….the love that I receive from our wonderful Savior God, and the love I receive from my husband should make me as shinny as the sun but unfortantely this thing called ‘self’ tends to make things a little shaddy. Today is still here so I will go look for some things to help me glow!

  311. Jaime says:

  315. Brianne says:

    Today the thing that is making me glow is support. I have been thrown in to the Special Education part of teaching this year with no training… basically left to sink or swim. I’ve had 3 different people working with me in a 12 week period of time, and these kids can.not. handle change. I feel like I’ve made myself blue in the face asking for suggestions, strategies, just any kind of help really to help me make the lives and education of these children better. So far, I’ve gotten nothing. However, I met with the state representative for Special Education in VA along with my new cooperating teacher, and I got strategy after strategy, suggestion after suggestion, support, support, support… everything just overflowing. I finally feel better. I finally feel like this is doable. I finally feel like I can succeed. That is a wonderful, amazing feeling!

  316. I am glowing this very day because I had the opportunity to chat with my sister in law who lives a good distance away from me. Anytime I’m with her she has a way of illuminated my face with a smile. She’s a great conversationalist and very real…. which always makes me laugh. Being refreshed by her today put a little sparkle in my life. And by the way she bears my same name… Stacy. Very cool.

  317. Anne says:

    Watching my husband and my son together today made me glow! I am so blessed to have a wonderful loving husband and a beautiful healthy son!

  372. Jessica says:

    I would put the words “walk” “in” and “light” on this necklace. What is really causing me to glow lately is walking in the light of the Bible. God’s truth is giving me joy an I am trusting Him to continue making me into a new creation. This lantern necklace would be perfect to express that! “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7

  373. nurse heather says:

  377. Robbin says:

    Wow! It took so long to scroll down here. You’re a popular one, Lisa. What’s making me glow today is that I have made new friends in my new digs here in Redondo. In Bible Study I was taking in the fact that I am now a part of some other women’s lives, sharing with them, praying with them and just chit-chatting with them. And a couple of them are now Facebook friends and I was able to share something special with them. And I know they will pray for me and I will SEE them again to share more with them. It’s beginning to feel like home.

I am trusting that with God’s strength and the love of my husband and children – glowing will happen again someday!

I know that I can glow right now because God is in control and a new job will come and people are loving to give my kids presents at Christmas and my dad is a Godly man with good medical care so I know God is there too. Thanks for the chance to win and maybe just vent a little. I hope to be glowing soon!

    Last week I was trying to come up with the PERFECT Christmas cookie recipe. I was searching desperately for one like my grandmother used to make when I was a little girl. Needless to say, I made them and they were HORRIBLE. I told my sweet Granny about my catastrophe, and today when I went to visit she had made a special batch of Christmas Cutout cookies just for me!!! I feel so blessed to have my grandmother still living. I hope to be as humble and thoughtful as she is someday. She makes EVERYONE around her glow!

    Last night I got together with me dearest friend, Kerry. We have been friends FOREVER. Over the last 20 years we have seen each other through many joys and sorrows. Life has been so full lately that we haven’t been able to see each other as much as we like so I appreciate the times we do get together so much. I know that she desires the best for me even if it means saying hard things. Remembering all that we have been through and all that we have to look forward to as friends makes me glow.

  415. patricia says:

  417. Tami says:

    I am glowing in the challenge of doing something totally out of my comfort zone, and totally new to me. In less than 48 hours I’ll participate in a stair climb to raise money for cystic fibrosis research! I am the most un-athletic person you’ll ever meet, I avoid doing sports and even too much physical activity in front of others, simply out of awkwardness and embarrasment. But, this time, I”ll climb 16 stories (my part of the relay) with hundeds of other people. Why? Because my precious Emily, who positively GLOWS – has CF. I can do this…for her.

    Each training climb has left me feeling stronger, and yes, I “glow” in that stinky sweaty way when I’m done!

    Oh, and the fact that we are taking our girls on their first Disney vacation in exactly one month…that makes me glow a bit, too.

  418. Roxy says:

    My babies . . . and knowing I will soon be home from my training and back to normal life . . . and my babies!

  419. Camille says:

    I have been scouring my home all day to find what? My missing paper lanterns…… and look what you have now. I love these necklaces. DARLING!
    I am glowing in the midnight hour to put together a chinese dinner for the youth of our church tomorrow. If only I had the necklace to wear! :) I would be oh-so-dressed for the occasion.

  420. Kristi F says:

    Love the new design!

    My glow comes from the knowledge that God is working through my family and others to provide Thanksgiving and Christmas for needy families. Today we did some of our gift buying for a family who is less fortunate and has the almost unbearable tragedy of a child with cancer. Every year we do this and every year I feel such a sense of peace come over me knowing that for just a short time things will be good for the family we are taking under our wing. I am blessed.

  421. Angela Carr says:

    There is a small little light, that wakes up before the sun comes up and speaks to my heart in words that few can understand. There is a little light that follows me and watches every move I make. There is a little light that was hoped and prayed for, for a very long time. This little light is my son, Matthew. He makes me glow.

  422. Genevieve says:

    My daughters laughter, that good full belly laughter that becomes contagious to everyone around.

    How adorable! I’m planning to have lanterns at my May wedding and also thinking of getting my girls a necklace, how perfect! One of my girls and I call each other “Ching” — how cute would that look on this?!

  439. The Nanny says:

    What’s making me glow?
    1) Finding out that I can graduate in 3.5 years (instead of 4) which means I’ll graduate DEBT-FREE!!!
    2) The amazing, amazing school I go to that I love so much
    3) How many friend I have immediately around me who I love so much
    4) The Skype conversation I had last night with my parents and sister, and the loud, off-key Dixie Chicks song my sister and I sang to make my parents laugh :)

    What’s making me glow?

When I wore them last night they were a magnet for hugs, cuddles and perfect for warming up cold sheets. I was in high demand, let me tell you!

    child: “Hello?”
    nurse: “Where’s your mommy?”
    child: lots of jibberish followed by Mommy’s in the bathroom and my brother is crying.

    I finally get to the phone to say how sorry I am and the nurse just laughed and said it was really cute. I think she was entertaining his conversation to make sure a mommy was really there. LOL!

Thanks for your fantastic giveaways!

  491. Martha says:

    I’m glowing today because I know the holidays will be special. I have an 11 yr. old & 13 yr. old. We have perfected the art of a not-too-much holiday. This equals a little time with family, a little time with friends, a little time for each other & not too many things.

  500. Lisa Silver says:

  503. Susan Bowen says:

    I’m literally “glowing” right now because it’s been a hectic day of chauffeuring kids to babysitting & youth group, squeezing in supper after picking the car up from the shop, keeping a lid on the craziness at work and remembering to take the garbage out to the street tonight! But my internal glow is because in a couple of hours, my teenagers will all be quiet in their rooms, my hubby will be home from Elder’s meeting and we can laugh about our days over a cup of tea before turning out the lights. I love my sweetheart – we’ve been married 23 1/2 years and I can’t wait for another few decades of growing – and glowing – together.

    My sweet daughter. She’s adopted from China and I’m Chinese, too, so these little lanterns are so appropriate for us. What a darling necklace.

  520. Hi Lisa,
    Being here at our winter home in Arizona surrounded by this beautiful desert that I can enjoy with my husband.

  523. Jan Richards says:

    Love your blog! I am glowing because we get to go to Disneyland tomorrow with our 3 grandkids. Charlotte is the most excited about meeting the princesses in her Aurora dress that I made her.

  524. Simple Mama says:

    Oh my! Your work is amazing!

    my 2 month old baby noah :)

  531. Jan J. says:

    What makes me glow every day is being a mom to my two daughters from China, something I never thought I’d get to be. I feel thankful every single day for my children, and OH I love this necklace! We all love paper lanterns and these are SO cute!

  538. Ruth says:

    The fact that I have friends who, even though I live far away from (all of them!), I can still just text them or post a little blurb through the interwebs to them when I’m having a not-so-glowing day. Just telling them “Man my day sucked” makes me feel better because I know they care about me, and they show it. It’s nice when people make sure you know they care about you. The people in my life are what make me glow today, and every day.

  539. Liz Henderson says:

    I am glowing as I watch 2 little girls giggle and play a game of tag. Like can’t get any sweeter.

  542. Anna says:

    My glow is spending time with my parents and children- watching the grandparent/grandkids interaction. We live so far apart….different countries…. it makes this glow so much more special.

  543. Deb says:

    My family. They are the best gift.

  544. Bethany says:

  546. Holly says:

    I’m glowing from all of the Christmas open houses in our quaint little town tonight! What a joy to walk into the beautifully decorated shops, see all the Christmas products,on sale, sip some cider and listen to the carolers on the street.

    Yesterday’s glow was seeing the look on my now 5 year old daughter’s face when she saw her birthday balloon (that I bought on a whim at the $1 store the night before) at her breakfast chair and the exclamation that “this is my bestest birthday – Mama it is going to be a GREAT day”. It made me laugh inside and out and reminded me how a child can delight in the smallest of things we can give them! As to a future glow – Mama would delight in winning your latest creation – the lanterns are beautiful!

  549. Shani says:

    My children definately make me glow everyday! Without them where would my life be? Love your new design!

  554. Starla says:

    My 7 kids make me glow. They are all great kids, help others, love their mommy, and are a blessing all around. My 4 grandkids add to the glow, and the fact that another is due in February.

  555. Julie says:

    My sense of glowing is perhaps very different from others. Since the death of our baby son, Will, I find a heart that tries to glow in the darkest time is fighting that darkness with hope. When I saw this necklace it made me glow…Because by wearing it, it can be the family portrait that only exists in my constant thoughts…since our littlest family member is in heaven. This necklace offers a glimpsing glow of the family that I quietly carry in my heart.

  556. Heidi says:

    I am glowing today because after being laid off for over a year, and my husband being laid off for the last 4 months, I started the photography business of my dreams and can finally provide for my family. I am so grateful for new beginnings!

  560. Margaret says:

    I’m glowing from the cardio class I just came from!

  561. Tricia Anne says:

    I am glowing today because my whole family is home and we are moving about slowly. No rushing about – only enjoying each other’s company. It is one of my very favorite things! Hearing the conversations of my children and my husband, and it is beginning to rain…very peaceful!
    Sincerely ~ Tricia Anne
    Ps. I asked “Santa” for the bird/cage necklace, for Christmas. :o)

  562. Kari says:

    My sweet daughter and her cousin dancing to Michael Jackson music in the background!!!!! 😀

    My family- overwhelmingly precious people that God gave me! Love this beautiful saturday with them!
