Your Devotional Time – Now in Color!

Coloring_BeStill_3

Transformed by His Grace is proud to offer you inspirational coloring books by Christian Art Publishers.

For years, therapists have used “color therapy” to help their patients re-center, calm down, and alleviate stress. Over the past couple years, this has soared in popularity with some adult coloring books topping the charts on Amazon.

Christian Art Publishers has taken the hobby a step further by releasing faith-based adult coloring books. More than just pretty pictures, these books are filled with Bible verses and Christian themes. As you color these beautiful pages, you’ll be encouraged to meditate on God’s Word.

Whether you think of coloring as therapy, a hobby, or devotional time, you’ll love these faith-filled coloring books!

Now available online and in store (next to Movies 8 in Tallahassee, Florida).

“Resurrection Mug” On Sale for Easter

resurrection

Didn’t we just put away the Christmas decorations? And yet Easter is right around the corner. Where does the time go?

It’s so easy to let the busyness of life distract us from the important things, including these special holidays. However, as Christians, we need to purposefully stop, be still, and focus on God. (See Psalm 46:10.) Only then can we align our hearts and actions with His will.

That’s the purpose of each Mug with the Message—to encourage us to look to God. In celebration of Easter, we’re placing the Resurrection Mug on sale for $9.95. When hot liquid is added, something really amazing happens! Click below to watch:

 

This mug features the verse from Matthew 28:6: “He is not here…for he is risen!” Now, that’s something to celebrate every day of the year!

To watch the Resurrection Mug transform in person, visit our store in Tallahassee, Florida (next to Movies 8). If you’re out of town, you can still purchase the mug in our secure Online Store. Remember, shipping is free for orders over $50.

Happy Easter!

“Love Mug” On Sale for Valentine’s Day

This Valentine’s Day, Transformed by His Grace would like to help you share God’s love in a unique way. Sure, chocolates are sweet, cards are nice, and flowers are beautiful, but they’re also temporary. Give a gift that lasts, that encourages your loved ones, and has an everlasting message.

Our Love Mug, one of the transforming Mugs with a Message, is now on sale for $9.95. When hot liquid is added, something really amazing happens! Click below to watch:

The Scripture on the mug is taken from 1 Corinthians 13:

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails…..And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

Get your amazing Love Mug in our Online Store or come by our store front in Tallahassee. Remember, shipping is free for orders over $50, so you can really spread the love this Valentine’s Day.

We’re so pleased to help each customer find the perfect gifts for their loved ones! Customers tell us daily that they can’t wait for their kids, spouse, parent, or friend to make their first cup of coffee in their transforming mug. Or they’re excited about the kids opening a box of Bible-based graphic novels. The list goes on and on.

This week, our store will be open on Wednesday to help you finish that last-minute shopping. We’ll even ship your gifts for you for free for purchases over $30. However, we’re closing a bit early on Friday 12/23/16 (at 6pm) so we can travel to be with our families. We’ll remain closed through the New Year, reopening on Tuesday, 1/3/17.

We hope to see you this week! However, if you’re too far away to join us at the store in Tallahassee, please take a look at our online store, which is open 24×7. (And, remember, shipping is free for purchases over $30.)

May you enjoy this Christmas season with your friends and family!

New Online Store!

Most of us are uncomfortable with change. If we’re content, we’re afraid a change will upset the status quo. If we’re starting a new venture, we’re afraid of failure. Somehow, we’ve learned to respond to change with fear.

Yet the Bible tells us that we should be changed by the renewing of our minds, from glory to glory. (See Romans 12:2 and 2 Corinthians 3:18.) We should seek daily transformation that brings us closer to the Lord. We are to step out in faith, assured that God is watching over us (Matthew 10:31).

In this spirit, we at Transformed by His Grace have undergone some transformation of our own. A month ago, we opened our first store front. What started out as a single product (The Mug with a Message), has been expanded to include our exclusive shirts, hats, and Transformed Tech gear (from power banks to Bluetooth speakers), as well as other gift items.

Now we’re transforming our online store to include these new items! We’re starting with the Transformed Mugs and Travel Mugs, Transformed Tech gear, shirts, and hats, and we’ll continue to add other items throughout this holiday season.

You can still find us at www.TransformedByHisGrace.com. Then select Shop Online to be redirected to the secure online store.

We trust you’ll find the new store helpful as you plan your Christmas shopping. Remember to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to learn about our specials and upcoming events. Our blog posts will also give you more information on our exciting new products.

Thank you for your encouragement and support as we transform ourselves, one day at a time.

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit” (2 Corinthians 3:18 NAS).

Thanks to Our Pastors!

“And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.” (Jeremiah 3:15 KJV)

October is Pastor Appreciation Month. Depending on your denomination, you may be more familiar with terms like Minister, Priest, or Father. In fact, the term “pastor” may only appear a handful of times in your translation of the Bible. So who, exactly, are we appreciating this month?

According to Webster’s Dictionary, the word “pastor” comes from “pascere,” meaning to put to pasture, to feed. Whenever we translate a word in the Bible as “pastor,” the original Hebrew (Old Testament) or Greek word (New Testament) literally means “shepherd.” The word is referring to someone who leads their group to a figurative pasture so they can feed.

That’s exactly what our pastors do! They spend the week mining the depths of the Bible, sitting by sick beds, and tending to the needs of the community. Then they present us with lessons from Scripture that we consume and that give us nourishment. Our pastors also encourage us to mine the Word for ourselves so we might grow closer to the Lord every day.

“O taste and see that the LORD is good; how blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!” (Psalm 34:8 NAS)

Through the end of October, we at Transformed by His Grace Coffee Shop & Christian Gifts would like to extend our gratitude to all the pastors who watch over our community. If you pastor a flock in Tallahassee or the surrounding area, we invite you to bring in a church bulletin for a free coffee. It’s our way of saying thanks for all you do!


If you’re looking for a special gift of appreciation for your pastor, come see us at Transformed. We have several items that any pastor would love, especially the Mugs with a Message. Each of these mugs start out black but transform into a beautiful picture when filled with hot liquid.mug_fishersofmen_v2

The Scriptumug_stillwaters_1re on the Fishers of Men Mug is Mark 1:18 KJV: “And straightway they forsook their nets and followed him.” 

The Spanish version of the Still Waters Mug even uses the word pastor: “El Señor es mi Pastor” from Psalm 23.

Remembering to Pray

home_pray_mug

The Transformed by His Grace Coffee Shop & Christian Gifts store has so many unique items that are meant to encourage and inspire. We knew we wanted to feature one of them for our Grand Opening, but which one carries the most meaning right now?

Our country is in the middle of an election. There is constant news of violence from our streets to our schools. Fires, hurricanes, and floods continue to devastate one city after another. We could go on, but we’re all aware of the issues that plague us. What, then, is the answer?

The Bible says that if we, God’s people, will humble ourselves and pray, seeking God’s face, He will answer us and heal our land. (See 2 Chronicles 7:14.) As Christians, we know we should pray, but we often get caught up in the issues of the day and become overwhelmed with confusion and anxiety.

That’s why we decided to feature the Pray America mug for our grand opening. The design is of an American flag with a beautiful bald eagle. The only text is the word “PRAY” and the verse “2 Chronicles 7:14.” This simple message encourages us to pray—for our families, our cities, our country, and the world at large. It reminds us that God is in control, and we need to seek Him and His will above all else. If we do this, we trust that He will hear us and heal our land.

We invite you to join our Grand Opening this Friday and Saturday, October 14 and 15, from 10am to 8pm. The Pray America mugs will be $5 off, and all other gifts and premium coffee will be 10% off. We’ll also have drawings for prizes. We hope you can celebrate with us this week and that you’ll join us in praying for our cities, our country, and our brothers and sisters throughout the world.

Announcing the Opening of Our New Store!

I showed the first Transformed by His Grace mug in 2006 at the Peanut Festival in Dothan, AL. Now, ten years later, I am proud to say we have opened a storefront in Tallahassee called Transformed by His Grace Coffee and Christian Gifts.

The road to this point has had God’s hand on it in a profound way. I was first led to start this company as a means to share God’s Word in a unique way, through the “Mug with a Message.” What began with one “sunrise” mug design has grown to over a dozen designs that have been shared around the world. Through online and retail outlets around the country, our mugs are being used to inspire and encourage those who receive their message.

As our company has grown, so has our need for warehouse and distribution space. However, every time we looked at eligible properties, we were met with roadblocks. When a local church presented us with an opportunity to rent a storefront in their plaza, we were unsure if we should take such a large step. After much prayer and godly counsel, we felt led to accept their offer and to expand our original plans.

God was giving us a bigger vision:  to be a different type of Christian business—a place where people can find fellowship, encouragement, and the positive message of God’s Word. He’s even brought Tobi Hester to us to open a coffee bar within the store. She had just closed her local coffee shop, Eternal Grounds, and we were so excited when she agreed to work with us! Now, customers can sip coffee while they shop for mugs and other gifts from wind chimes to our own line of tech items with a Christian theme.

I’m looking forward to seeing what God has planned for us. Please stop by the store—next to the Miracle 8 Theater on Sharer Road—to see our one-of-a-kind Christian gifts and enjoy a wonderful coffee!
