     The Delilah Box contents came in a beautiful red rose print drawstring bag. There was also a smaller pink and white gingham print drawstring bag inside. These cute bags would definitely be great for gifting, storing travel kit items, or storing stationary items. I will be using the large one to carry my bible, journal, and a few stationary items on the go.


     The Delilah Box monthly brochure has lots of interesting and useful information in it. The brochure included an article from Taylor (the creator of Delilah Box), activities, subscription box information, and details for various women's ministry events. I thoroughly enjoyed the little extras throughout the brochure including a bible quiz, just for laughs section, and bible journaling section.


     The book Delilah by Angela Hunt was included in the box I received. It is a christian fiction book that focuses on the life of Delilah. This book embellishes on the biblical history of Samson and Delilahs story that we have access to in the bible. The author humanizes Delilah for the reader and chisels away at her bad girl persona resulting in a more relatable character. If you enjoy taking a look at well known stories through different lenses, I would recommend this book to you.

Publisher's Description

     "Life is not easy in Philistia, especially not for a woman and child alone. When beautiful, wounded Delilah finds herself begging for food to survive, she resolves that she will find a way to defeat all the men who have taken advantage of her. She will overcome the roadblocks life has set before her, and she will find riches and victory for herself. When she meets a legendary man called Samson, she senses that in him lies the means for her victory. By winning, seducing, and betraying the hero of the Hebrews, she will attain a position of national prominence. After all, she is beautiful, she is charming, and she is smart. No man, not even a supernaturally gifted strongman, can best her in a war of wits."


     The book Harriet Beamer Strikes Gold by Joyce Magnin was included in the box I received. It is a christian fiction book that focuses on Harriet Beamers adventures. This book follows Harriet through her venture with investing in a gold mine. The author shows the reader a valuable lesson through Harriet's journey concerning what real treasures are. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a fun read that is full of adventure and life lessons.

Publisher's Description

     "Harriet settles into a new life in Grass Valley, California, and gets caught up in another adventure when she decides to lease a gold mine. After listening to the pleas of a desperate teen whose daddy needs money right away---and happens to have a gold mine to lease---Harriet falls hook, line, and sinker into the venture. Although she is nervous about her investment, Harriet chooses to keep it a secret from her son, Henry, and his wife who have just learned they are expecting a baby. And besides, this just may be the ticket to a golden windfall.But when Harriet's friend Martha comes for a visit, she convinces Harriet to come clean because she is suspicious and just doesn't buy that the operation is legit. Harriet may never see an ounce of gold, but it is the fate of the young teen that really begins to matter. And it takes an emergency with her daughter-in-law, Prudence, for Harriet to learn where her true treasure lies."

   
     The book The 3 Promises by David J. Pollay was included in the box I received. It is a non fiction book that focuses on self help. This book introduces a method of making three distinct promises to yourself to improve your life. The author shows the reader how to improve their overall happiness in a few easy steps. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in their personal self improvement.

Publisher's Description

     "In this inspiring follow-up, Pollay explains how making three simple promises to yourself—“to find joy every day, do what you love, and make a difference”—can radically enhance every aspect of your life. Illustrating his points through memorable, personal stories, Pollay makes it simple to practice transformative strategies that help us achieve fulfillment."

     The box included these beautiful cross earrings. These golden earrings are adorned with silver flowers and crystal accents. I am so happy to have received faith based jewelry in this subscription box. These earrings are the perfect accessories to display your faith.
     The box included a small pill case as well. This metal case is beautifully decorated on the lid with the text "Never will I leave you, Never will I forsake you." This serves as the perfect daily reminder of God's faithfulness.

      I received this inspirational pocket mirror in the box as well. This pocket mirror is the perfect size to slip in your purse and take on the go. The text serves as a great daily reminder to allow God to guide our lives. 
     I also received this metal nail file. It has a cute design and is seems to be of great quality. It was so nice to get a practical pampering item in the box.
     I was so happy to receive these three cold brew iced tea bags. Twinings always offers great quality and is a personal favorite of mine. The variety in flavors was a welcome edition to my tea collection. I think these teas would make for excellent opportunities to invite someone over for tea and use the time to encourage them.

     This simple yet cute little notepad was a great addition to the box. I love the pink color and the little flower in the top right corner. It is a great size for taking on the go and jotting down things as inspiration strikes. I was thinking of using mine to write down little encouraging notes for friends and family to send throughout the year. 

     Last but not least, I received a small scripture card in the box. The scripture card was adorned with the verse 1 John 1:9 surrounded by a cute wreath pattern. I think it would make a great tool for witnessing opportunities and that is what I will be using it for.
     Overall, I really enjoyed the Delilah Subscription Box. I was happy with the contents and felt that it was all useful and true to being faith oriented.
