CrossTimberReview

The holidays are right around the corner. This is the time of year I start to think about special gifts for family and friends. CrossTimber has beautiful personalized gifts with name meanings.  For this review I received a Personalized Framed Plaque with Name Meaning and Bible Verse.

CrossTimber is a company that has really done their research in the meaning behind and names. They research the name, and write name stories, that make really lovely gifts that are meant to inspire and encourage. They have name plaques, bookmarks, multi name plaques, name coffee mugs, name meaning music boxes, and names of God.

CrossTimber will be celebrating their 20th anniversary next year of their very first name meaning gift. The story behind how this all got started is actually really touching. John was homeschooled and he thought of it as real life lessons. He tells a story about his favorite subject being math and using m&ms. Now that’s something my daughter would love as she loves her chocolate. Then it went on to a Driver’s Ed class. He was in class with public school students. They were quit different then him and they thought the same of him. There were days he wanted to just be done with that class. He would pray to God on how he would respond to the other kids. His mother suggested using CrossTimber (which was the family photography business) to make little cards for each student. He asked his teacher permission and then got started. He researched each and every name and found the perfect bible verse to go with it. He gave them to each student on the last day. To this day he is still surprised by the difference those little cards made. The experience to him etched a concept of blessing into his history and thinking. So whether your blessing and enemy, stranger, or a friend unexpectedly or secretly it is rewarded by God’s favor and secret blessing. After drivers ed he started researching other names and printed up 800 name cards in advance. He would carry these cards with him and when he met someone new he would give them to them. Then this turned into a business.

I placed my order and at first I selected a light house theme. John sent an email telling me what my name meant and the bible verse and I thought it was the most touching thing. He then suggested it would look great with butterflies or flowers. When he said butterflies I knew that it was God talking to me to change that. I know you may think it sounds silly but let me explain why. Butterflies are very near and dear to my heart, especially after ladies retreat this year. We were to pick out one thing that would remind us during the most trying times or even just at any time that God is there with us. The first thing that came to my head was butterflies. I can’t tell you how many of them I seen this year. I have seen many more during the hardest times this past year.

Ordering it was easy. John was great answering questions and even giving suggestions. I totally appreciated the recommendation on what he thought it would look better on. Those who know me know I love lighthouses. When he mentioned butterflies I knew that is what I was meant to order. I love the fact that I was able to see the name meaning and bible verse before it arrived. I had no idea what the final peace would look like with the frame as I had that choosen for me. All I can say is I am complete amazed. This truly would make an amazing gift for family and friends. I even have my eye on ordering a music box for my daughter in the near future.

Let me tell you: Stacie is from Greek: Name Meaning: Spring, Renewal: One who is Abounding with Life – Bible Verse – If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. John 7:37

The scripture goes perfect with the name meaning. I had no idea my name had a greek meaning. You won’t see the words Name Meaning or Bible Verse in the final product. I was just pointing it out for the review.
