Meet the World Changer – Kinya Claiborne

God shows up in my life every single day, every minute, every second.

I’m actually a survivor of the Route 91 mass shooting that happened in Las Vegas. It was the largest mass shooting in modern-day American history, and that day, I went to celebrate my birthday in Las Vegas. It was really the unthinkable. In fact, when the shooting happened, no one even realized it was a shooting because it was just the unthinkable. Of course, I had my My Saint My Hero bracelets on me because I wear them every single day. I never take them off. Immediately, when the shooting began and I realized it was gunshots, not fireworks or part of the show, everyone ran. I immediately was separated from my friends. I was separated from them for about eight full hours before I was able to connect with them, see them, hug them, cry with them and pray with them. When I was able to reconnect with my friend Danielle, we looked down and noticed that we both had My Saint My Hero bracelets on.

How Are You Changing the World?

When I was younger, I knew I was made for something “more,” something “larger than life,” something great. I wanted to change the world and thought that would be brought about by fame and riches, particularly as an actress. I had been acting and singing on stage since I was 5. My family is very musical, and we had been involved in a lot of musicals together, whether acting, singing, or building sets. However, God’s plan for me was not to be an actress. His plan for me to be “great” was not about me, but about Him. When I was 18, I fell in love with God. My faith went from being about “rules” and “just saying no” to sin out of fear of hell, to being a love story where the goal is to spend eternity with God in heaven. And when someone falls in love, she can’t help but tell everyone about it! I knew that I wanted to change the world not for my glory, but for His! I wanted everyone to know about God’s beautiful, life-giving love! That started with my family, my friendships, my local church, and turned into my ministry as a speaker and songwriter/worship leader. Now (16 years later) it is also as a wife and a mother. I am changing the world not because I am so great, but because God is. I am changing the world because I am being who God created me to be—a daughter who rests in the peace and joy of her Father—Our Father. I am changing the world not only because I get to be on a stage in front of 5,000 people preaching and singing about God’s love, but because I try to live a life of loving God, my neighbor, and myself even when I am home with my kids in the messiness and busyness of everyday life.

How have you seen God show up in your life?

Five months before I graduated college, I had a job lined up as a youth minister where I got to live a few miles from the beach in a house owned by the church where I only had to pay a very small amount for rent. My dad (who had tried to dissuade me from the financially ruinous and non-upward mobility-ness life of a youth minister) couldn’t believe that I had gotten such an amazing job and housing situation especially well before I graduated college. He said to me, “Wow. You live a charmed life!” My reply to him was, “No, dad, it’s because I trust in God!” Now, I’m not saying that God is a genie or an ATM or that if we believe in Him we will always be financially fit. But, God is my provider. He is a Father who loves His daughter. When I call, He answers me. He has always provided for me. He has provided Godly friendships when I needed them in my life. He has provided opportunities for me to serve Him (whether in exotic destinations like New Zealand and Australia, all the way to third world countries where the original squatty potties exist). He has provided for my humility in the form of break-ups and persecution and accountability-based growth. After 10 years of prayer, he provided an amazing husband who is beyond what I could have imagined. He provided us with a place to live. He gave us three beautiful children (who keep us on our toes, test our patience, and make us love like never before). God has shown up in my life over and over again in prayer, relationships, ministry, etc. By His grace, I will always trust in His love, His care, and His providence. – Jackie Francois Angel/jackieandbobby.com

The Most Powerful Medal – The Benedictine Medal and St. Benedict

The Most Powerful Medal – The Benedictine Medal and St. Benedict

WHO IS SAINT BENEDICT?

“And let them first pray together, that so they may associate in peace.” –St. Benedict

Two girls in a city, laughing, wearing My Saint My Hero Benedictine Blessing Bracelets Benedict of Nursia was born into a wealthy family around 480 AD. After studying in Rome, unnerved by the worldly events of the time and watching his fellow students fritter their lives away, Benedict fled the city for life as a hermit. This, however, was not his calling. After years of prayer, Benedict’s holiness became well known and monks came to seek his guidance. Though he had warned the monks that he would be too strict, they attempted to poison him while under his tutelage. Benedict prayed over the cup of poison (now pictured on the front of the medal) and the cup shattered. Before too long, Benedict of Nursia had more monks requesting to follow him and 12 monasteries were formed making St. Benedict the father of the Monastic Order. “The Rule” written by St. Benedict became a guide to a prescribed life of prayer, study, moderation and manual labor.  During the Middle Ages, monasteries in the west adopted the Rule of St. Benedict. (Fun Fact – His twin sister is also a saint called St. Scholastica!)

“Listen and attend with the ear of your heart.” –St. Benedict

My Saint My Hero Benedictine Blessing Bracelet

THE SAINT BENEDICT MEDAL

Each one of us has the chance to make our world a better place every single day. We do so by choosing to do what is right and good and choosing to avoid what is wrong. God has given us an internal sensor that helps us seek good and avoid evil; it’s called our conscience. He has also given us the Holy Spirit to keep our conscience strong and clear, but we still find it hard to say no to temptation and sin. This bracelet is an extra help in your battle to make the world a better place and follow the path to heaven. It’s like a secret weapon. Shop Now - My Saint My Hero Benedictine Blessing Bracelets In Christian tradition, the Benedictine cross is one of the Church’s most powerful signs of divine protection. It was created in the mid 600’s as a symbol of the spiritual truths that enabled St. Benedict and his many followers to resist evil and do good. “The Holy Cross be my Light,” is written in Latin on the front of the cross, which is used all over the world to help spread Christ’s Kingdom of love and light. Wear this ancient symbol to help protect your soul, your loved ones and your home from anything contrary to God’s love. – Father John Bartunek, LC ThDRCSpirituality.org

ST. BENEDICT ON THE FRONT OF THE MEDAL

On the front of the medal, we see St. Benedict holding the Rule of St. Benedict in his left hand and the cross of St. Benedict. Behind him is the cup of poison. The Meaning of the Symbolism of the Front of the Benedictine Medal

THE POWERFUL PRAYERS ON THE BACK OF THE MEDAL

On the back of the medal are two prayers that can be recited daily. The first prayer: Crux sacra sit mihi lux! Nunquam draco sit mihi dux! Translated, it means: The Holy Cross be my light; Let not the dragon be my guide.

The second prayer with which St. Benedict prayed over the cup of poison: Vade retro Satana! Nunquam suade mihi vana! Sunt mala quae libas. Ipse venena bibas! Begone, Satan, Do not suggest to me thy vanities! Evil are the things thou offerest, Drink thou thy own poison!

Wear your bracelet as a tangible reminder each day of the power of prayer, the power of faith and remember you are loved!

The Story Behind the St. Amos Love Bracelet

The Story Behind the St. Amos Love Bracelet

John Stamos St. Amos Love Bracelet

 


Let 'em know they're loved, John Stamos

Many years ago, when I was trying to come up with a name for my production company, without missing a beat my mother said, “Call it St. Amos.” Neither of us knew that there was a real saint by that name—we just thought it sounded cool.

St. Amos Love Bracelet for Men and Women

Well, not only was St. Amos cool, he was humble. A “saint for the people” spreading the word that God’s love was not just for prophets and kings, but for every woman and man. My wife and I had the thought, how can we spread love and pay our blessings forward? We decided to partner St. Amos with My Saint My Hero to do just that.

 

I’ve been wearing My Saint My Hero bracelets for years. I often find myself giving them to friends, fans or sometimes I get a vibe that someone just needs to be acknowledged, to let someone know they’re special. And who knows the impact of what a gesture like this can do? Wear one, share one and tell us your stories so we can continue to share the love forward. #StAmosJewelryStories —JOHN STAMOS
