Email from a customer who ordered two Name Blessings Kits for her children

I'm excited to hear that the kits are on the way :) I'm sure my children will be blessed for years to come with the verses we chose for their lives. I've been wanting to frame these verses I had picked out for them, but wasn't sure how to do it - I'm very glad I ran across your website as I think it's a wonderful way to have these verses on their walls (and prayerfully in their hearts) for years to come.

Thank you for what you do!


Additional Customer Comments:

Thank you so much for responding so quickly. My husband and I are expecting a baby. We had our first child 25 years ago. This baby is truely a medical miracle. Because this child has been such a surprise we know a name must be chosen with great thought. I live in a very rural area of Alaska so most of my shopping is done online. I have spent months trying to locate a site that lists life verses for children's names. I cried when I found joyful expressions last evening! I would like to purchase the kit to do myself .We have chosen not to know the sex of the baby. Because the child will be born before I could get the kit and see what the life verse is for that name.... I was wondering if there is any way I could ask for a huge favor? We want to announce the baby's name and its meaning at birth. My husband would like to pray the life verse over the child as soon as it is born as well. Could you tell me the life verse for these names? I know am asking a huge favor. It would mean so much to know now. I completely understand if that is not ok.

Thanks again for responding so quickly to my email.


Thank you for all the quick work and processing. I am very much looking forward to having these displayed in their rooms for them to see on a daily basis. My own mother had our names and meanings with a verse cross stitched in small pink fabric frames on her dresser; I will always remember looking at those and the feeling of "specialness" it gave me. I hope these give my own children the same feelings of spiritual value and worth through their growing years. I hope you know what a blessing your work is and I am sure you will be richly rewarded in Heaven for your efforts.

Have a wonderful day and God bless!


The piece that u designed for my other granddaughter (Georgia-Pink Butterfly) turned out beautifully & I know Annabel will treasure hers as well. I love ur website &, as I have another grandchild on the way, I'll b getting in touch w/ u soon. Many blessings.

The Kaeden Name Blessings design was my first project from Joyful Expressions and I was hooked immediately. Charts are easy to follow and fast to complete. I have since ordered more patterns. What better gift than to give someone personalized gift. Thank you for making that possible with so many choices.

Oh Sandra!

I just received my new Name Blessing kits! They are so beautiful! I can't wait to get started stitching them! But I MUST finish my current WIP before I start the Christmas presents...

And thank you SO MUCH for the beautiful needle minder! I love it! I have prayed many years for these grandchildren.

I am so excited to have the Word of God on the walls of their rooms! And speaking the wonderful characteristics over them...I just can't say thank you enough for the opportunity to have these in their rooms. I know they will hang them, read them and cherish them because "Grandma made it for me!".

May you be blessed abundantly for using your creative gifts to spread God's Word all over!

Thank you so much for your generosity, not to mention your quick response! You are a blessing and have blessed so many with your creativity! You are my go-to now for baby gifts...will have 4 more to do in the next few months, so I will be "talking" to you again soon!!

I pray that many others will use your site and your creativity to bless others!

I must tell you that before I settle on a scripture, I ask the Lord to give me His Word over the child I am doing this for...I see it as a way of speaking God's Word into the life of this little one! And the fact that you use your creativity in this way, tells me that you too see this as a blessing for the intended child! You are more of a blessing than you know!

I pray for the continued success of your site....may your cup overflow!

3 Name Blessings stitched by Vanessa McGuire


I don't know if you remember me from about this time last year, but I am in an American Heritage Girls troop and we use the name blessings and verses from your website to put on the backs of our girls' nametags. I also purchased three of your cross stitch patterns last year to make for my children: Aidan (11), Emma (9), Clara (6). They loved them and I thoroughly enjoyed making them! They hang in their bedrooms for them to see and enjoy. I look forward to my next project from your website! I have included a picture of the three projects. If you can use them on your website, you are welcome to do so!

Thank you, Sandra!
