·         Family Christian is a Christian retailer, operating in 250 stores across the country. They are committed to helping you find, grow, share and celebrate your faith through a wide selection of Christian books, music, Bibles, DVDs, gifts and more.

·         When you shop with Family Christian, your purchases support their efforts to unite with ministries that are helping children and families in need around the world.

Family Christian is a company I had never heard of before, but when the opportunity arose to check out the store and receive $25 in products for free, I jumped at the chance. The Christian bookstores that I used to shop at closed years ago. Unfortunately, the closest Family Christian is over 100 miles away. Thankfully, I can browse the website. Though not the same as moseying through a bookstore, it is wonderful to find a site that provides so many different Christian products.

Here, check out these Product Recommendations:

I had such a hard time deciding what to purchase with my $25 gift code because there are Christian products of all kinds in this store. Besides Bibles, books, music, and movies, you will find Gifts & Decor, Apparel & Jewelry, and Church & Ministry Supplies. Each of the different categories then has many different sub-categories for your shopping pleasure.

It's easy enough to navigate the site and checking out was no problem. All I had to do was create an account and I was all set. The one disappointing this was that I was unable to utilize the Buy 1 Get 1 50% off sale with the $25 Gift Code.

What I really liked was there "Special Order Only" feature. If a product states it is "Special Order Only" it means that the product is not currently in stock, but they will order it directly from the vendor or partner. The books I was interested in getting for Tabitha were all "Special Order Only," so I am still waiting for my product. I plan to give a quick update when we receive them as I am sure you are as curious as I am in regard to how long it will take a special order only order to get processed, shipped, and delivered.

I ended up ordering a mystery series for Tabitha called Boarding School Mysteries. There are four books in this series by Kristi Holl: Vanished, Betrayed, Burned, and Poisoned.

I definitely recommend stopping by to see what you can find. Don't forget to enter the giveaway for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate to use at the site or in a Family Christian store if you have one nearby (you can check their Store Locator to see if there is one close to you).

All you need to do is enter in the Rafflecopter form below.
