Olivia Sophia Stationery
Inspirational Paper for the Soul

More info: 

When Bridgette Reed learned she was expecting, she knew it was a miracle. She named her daughter “Olivia Sophia,” which means “anointed wisdom.” Shortly after, she founded her business, Olivia Sophia Stationery, a brand built on love and faith.

“The beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord,” Reed explains. “We live for Him and believe He has blessed us with this great miracle. Our little baby is our inspiration, God is our foundation, love is our destination, empowerment is our goal and faith is our movement.”

Olivia Sophia Stationery products are fun, inspiring and fashionable. They are also affordable. “We believe that anything is possible,” Reed continues. “While you can get a journal from anywhere, we want our customers to be reminded that God is able and anything is possible. There is no mountain too high that you can’t climb and there is no obstacle too tough that you can’t make it through. With God on your side you can achieve anything.”

Bridgette Reed is best known for her self-published book Bold, Fierce and Transformed, featured on FOX Good Day, ABC Good Morning Dallas and a host of other radio, television and print media. It has been sold internationally and in major bookstore chains such as Barnes and Noble and Family Christian Stores.

This is another recommended gift idea!


TUDIA Shock-Proof Cases Make Tough Samsung Galaxy S7 Active Even Tougher for Active & Outdoor Use.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is called the toughest Galaxy yet, “Shatter-resistant up to 5 feet on a flat surface” (according to Samsung), but if there are protrusions or the surface isn’t entirely flat, the phone could get cracked, scratched, or damaged – so a protective case is essential gear to protect your smartphone investment. The TUDIA MERGE and ARCH shock-proof cases make your Samsung Galaxy even tougher, with dual layer and single layer designs, raised edges, superior materials, precision cut openings, a soft touch, and multiple colors — at a low cost of only $9.90-$12.90 each.

It is durable and easy to put on. I like that it is also lightweight!
