Crowned by the King: Wear & Share God's Love
I'm so excited to tell you about this wonderful ministry called "Crowned By the King". A beautiful crown necklace is used as a tool to share God's love in a unique, creative way. When you give away a necklace to a girl or woman, also known as a "Crowned Moment", you send her a message of hope and worth at the same time. She will be reminded of her true identity in Christ. Check out how the ministry works here.
There are three kinds of "Crowned Moment" opportunities: the Compliment Crowned Moment, the Need Crowned Moment, and the Gift Crowned Moment. I really like the idea of the Compliment Crowned Moment so I prayed and asked God to show me whom I should give a necklace to. While I was praying, a specific young lady came to my mind so I thought if nobody compliments on the necklace, I would just give it to this lady (the Gift Crowned Moment). However, this evening, at a gathering with some international students (we are part of an outreach that ministers to international students who attend our local university), that lady (whom God placed on my heart/mind to share the necklace with) was the first and only person who complimented my necklace. Happily, I gave her the necklace (with the pouch and brochure). I shared with her the meaning of the necklace, the ministry concept, and about my prayer. I told her that she is God's princess--a daughter of the King of kings and that she is loved, cherished, and beautiful. She is a Chinese student who received Jesus as her Lord and Savior last year. She was so touched by the necklace that she quickly went to show it to her friends and then asked her boyfriend to put it around her neck. I know she felt very blessed! That made not only her day but also my day :)!
