  • Strength On Dark Days

    I bought a Strength key for myself. I had been battling depression and going through some really dark days. I knew it would be a simple reminder every day to stay strong through the tough times. My friend left to go into the Air Force my senior year of high school. He had kept me strong and stayed by my side through everything. He finally opened up to me and told me how he developed a drinking problem and seemed to be really hurt. This was right before his birthday, so I decided to send him the strength key as...

  • Breathing Through Hard Times

    I bought the BREATHE pendant for myself when I was in the lowest of lows. I'm a high school student who had one best friend, who moved one thousand miles away (we still talk(ed), but you can imagine the strain). Most of my life, my dad fooled me into thinking he was the best and my mom was evil, and my vision was flipped one night when my dad abandoned me to have a one night stand with a woman he met online. My mom and I never really talked for 16 years, since my dad pushed us apart, but...

  • Believing in the Best

    Several years back after facing multiple miscarriages, a friend gave me a key that said "Believe". At the time, to me it meant to believe that I would one day hold a baby in my arms.

I have since come to terms with my infertility, am in an amazing relationship, and have never been happier. My nephew and his wife recently gave birth (very prematurely) to a precious baby girl. I...

  • Seeking Truth

    My wonderful colleague, who is at a cross road in her career/life and one in which decisions are difficult to make. I gave her a key with the word “Truth” on it. It is to remind her to be true to herself as well as to always seek the truth. There are so many biblical references to the word truth. One that seems fitting is “Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened for you” Matthew 7:7

  • Staying Strong

    I bought my first Giving Key because I wanted a visual reminder that I have to be strong. I wore it for two weeks until I found out from a friend that he had been fired and has not been able to find a job. He has a wife and 3 young kids. He told me his wife, who is my friend, hasn't been able to sleep because of the stress. I gave him my necklace to give to her. She wore it every day. Her husband got a job. They're downsizing, but they're a happy family.
