Letterpress Blocks by (in)courage - #wordsmatter Review and Giveaway

I received products for review from (in)courage. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

Grace. Love. Hospitality. Family. What word has God put on your heart this year?

The word that always comes to me through God is "Forgiven". I often have to remind myself that because of God's grace, I am forgiven. Sometimes I feel like I'm not good enough or measure up to God's standards and don't deserve to be forgiven. Realistically, I know that God loves me and forgives me. I KNOW I am saved by His blood and forgiven with his grace. But sometimes I need a little reminder that I'm worthy of being forgiven.

I created the word "Forgiven" with the Letterpress Blocks by (in)courage. Handcrafted in India, Letterpress Blocks are made of thick wood with black letters or symbols. They are available in different sizes and fonts. The blocks can be connected vertically or horizontally using the included metal clips, and they can be set a surface or hang on a wall.

My first instinct was to use the metal clips to connect the blocks at the back so my "Forgiven" word would be all together in a straight line. I opted not to go that route and instead hung each letter up individually at different positions and angels so they'd be crooked. It's a reminder that although my life is crooked, my sins are forgiven.


Letterpress Blocks by (in)courage allows you to create a word or phrase that has special meaning to you. You can also use it to create a first or last name. The drag & drop menu during the ordering process allows you to see which size and font of letters you find most appealing. It gives you an idea of what they'll look like when all put together.

My Letterpress Blocks are hung in my kitchen and they are visually appealing. Even more, it's a daily reminder that I am, indeed, forgiven.

Win It!

One person will win a $50 code for Letterpress Blocks to create their own special word.
