Good evening, savvy savers! Tonight I want to share with you all something I never speak about on my blog, my faith. Over the past few years, I have been on a personal path of cultivating my personal faith. From reviewing selections from Christian authors to enjoying faith-based podcasters and periscopes, I have carved out time to focus on my spiritual roots. And while I don’t often post my views on this topic for the world to see, this is nonetheless important to my family life and own spiritual well-being. I received a $25 coupon to The Family Christian Store, and it was the perfect opportunity to use their Buy One Get One 50% off deal.
And it is with this in mind that I agreed last month to review The Family Christian Store’s online shop, and as a result was provided with a $25.00 gift certificate to facilitate a small, personal online shopping afternoon of fun.
So a little about About Family Christian:
- 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 thru a wide selection of Christianity-focused merchandise including books, music, Bibles, DVDs, gifts, journals, and more.
- When you shop with Family Christian, your purchases support their various international ministries.
Navigating the site:
Using The Family Christian Store’s website was really rather easy. I enjoyed not being asked to both verify my laptop’s location, cache, cookies, nor required to sign up for an account. I like shopping from sites where I am truly treated as a guest.
Navigating the site was also very seamless. Though the site was very minimally designed, it has a clean interface, the pages loaded quickly, and it was easy to see whether or not any items I was interested in purchasing was available online or through one of their brick-and-mortar locations.
The first thing that caught my eye was their extensive collection of Illustrated Faith items – which are currently 10% off. Also their large selection of Journaling Bibles – many of which are 30% off currently and would make excellent gifts for Fall’s Season of Gratitude devotionals. There are also many upcoming releases available for pre-order in their Journaling Bible section, so if you’re passionate about Faith Journaling, the Family Christian website can be your new one stop shop for all your faith-based journaling needs!
There are also several rosaries available, excellent for all of the upcoming festivals on prior to the advent season. As there are several frugal, affordable nativity and advent sets currently available for children all great reduced in price, up to 80% off at present as well. These would make excellent Advent or frugal, three-gift Christmas selections, too!

So after looking at a few items, I was able to find a few items for my husband’s holiday stocking this year! I’d share but then it wouldn’t be a secret for him! Oh, and a little something for myself, a roll of the Illustrated Faith Washi tape – which I will be socking away for putting my 2017 planner together during the last week of this year.
Overall, I was able to checkout within minutes and expect my items to arrive within 5-7 business days. However, there was one point of interest while checking out, while from using the site was that I needed to insert my gift certificate code on the Shopping Cart page was not made clear during the initial checkout page. It wasn’t until I reached the payment page that I realized I’d failed to insert that code. Because of that, I had to start my checkout experience all over. Aside from this, all went well with ordering!
