Cyber Monday deals!

Happy Monday everyone! Today’s the feast of St. Andrew — his powerful novena starts today, I highly recommend it! It places your intentions at the feet of the Baby Jesus in the hour He was born, amazing. ❤

I got a lot of interest in my Black Friday special — I’m excited to work with you all! I’m all booked up for December, but if you’re due in 2021 and would like a consultation, or if you’d like to purchase a gift certificate to give as a St. Nicholas Day or Christmas gift (as long as it won’t be redeemed until January or later), I’m again offering my $10 deal for Cyber Monday! (Usual cost: Ordinary Consultations are $50, Mini Consultations are $25; read their descriptions here.)

To redeem: Email me today (sanctanomina at gmail dot com) between now and midnight tonight eastern time noting that you’d like the Cyber Monday special, and I’ll send you an invoice for $10. Once I receive your payment, I’ll put you in the queue! First come, first served (except that, as mentioned, I can’t work on them until after New Year’s).

The Marian Fathers — publishers of my book of Marian names — are having a great sale today as well! Head over to their web site and watch the scrolling banner on the front page — it details all the great deals!

Have a wonderful day!

Black Friday! Come get your consultations!

Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Black Friday Consultation Deal — today only!

For Black Friday this year, I’m offering baby name consultations for $10 a piece! (Usual cost: Ordinary Consultations are $50, Mini Consultations are $25; read their descriptions here.)

You can buy one for yourself for now or bank it for future use, or you can buy it for someone else and I can email you a gift certificate to present to that person. Because this has been a popular item in the past when I’ve done this for Black Friday, I can’t guarantee my usual three-week-or-less turnaround, but I will work as fast as I can and give priority to due dates. I can’t wait to hear from you!

To redeem: Email me today (sanctanomina at gmail dot com) between now and midnight tonight eastern time noting that you’d like the Black Friday special, and I’ll send you an invoice for $10. Once I receive your payment, I’ll put you in the queue! First come, first served (except that, as mentioned, if you have a due date coming soon, I’ll bump you up).

Consultation-for-Book Deal — continuing indefinitely!

A second thing I’m offering, starting today but continuing indefinitely, is that with every purchase of my book of Marian baby names, you’ll receive a discount on a consultation: $25 for an Ordinary Consultation (value: $50), and no cost for a Mini Consultation (value: $25).

To redeem: Simply email me a copy of your receipt (screen shot for online orders; regular photo for in-store purchases), dated today or later (one consultation per book). You can order it from ShopMercy.org (the Marian Fathers) or Amazon (which is offering a discounted price today for the book), and may find it in your local Catholic book store.

Have a great Friday!!

Happy Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus! (And redemption of Black Friday Special No. 3)

I just posted a [not fun] Friday question a few minutes ago, completely forgetting to wish you all a happy Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus! I’ve written several things about His Holy Name, which I link to in this post, and I also just discovered that the diocese of Raleigh, North Carolina has the Holy Name of Jesus as one of its patrons! (The other is the Sacred Heart of Jesus — those are some heavy hitting patrons!) So happy patronal feast day to all you Raleigh-ites!

Today is also the day that I start accepting consultation requests from those of you who took advantage of my Black Friday Special No. 3. I look forward to hearing from you!

Black Friday Specials!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American readers!! I hope you all had a wonderful day!!

I’m offering three Black Friday Specials!! Specials No. 1 and No. 3 are for today only; Special No. 2 is for MONDAY.

FIRST
I’m offering ten Ordinary Consultations for $10 each! (Regular price: $50; consultation description here.) The first ten people who email me today with their consultation request will receive an invoice from me via email for $10 by midnight on Monday, Dec. 1.

*** Please note we’re going out of town for a family funeral super early tomorrow morning, so I can’t guarantee I’ll be able to respond to everyone who emails me today. I will let you know by Sunday night if you’re one of the first ten people. If you’re not, consider Black Friday Special No. 2 (below). ***

I can guarantee these $10 Special Consultations will be completed by New Year’s Day if you need them done by then, barring unforeseen circumstances (but I can’t promise they’ll be done before that); if yours can wait until after New Year’s, please note that. There’s no expiration date on these consultation requests.

SECOND
I’m offering ten Christmas Gift Certificates for Ordinary Consultations for $25 each! (Regular price: $50.) The first ten people who email me on ***MONDAY*** for a gift certificate will receive an invoice from me via email for $25 by midnight on Tuesday, Dec. 2. These gift certificates can be redeemed starting December 26th. I will work on them in the same way I do all consultation requests — first come, first served, and completed within three weeks of receiving the request (barring unforeseen circumstances). I will email you a gift certificate that you can print out and present to the person receiving it as a gift (I can send it to by Dec. 5 in case you want to give it as a St. Nicholas gift!). There’s no expiration date on the gift certificates.

THIRD
Anyone who buys my book today will receive a free Ordinary Consultation! (Limit one consultation per person.) My book (which, as you all know, is a book of Marian names, and is the result of nearly ten years of research, including invaluable input from all of you! Read more about it, including its amazing endorsements, here) is available at ShopMercy.org (every purchase supports the Marian Fathers) and for a reduced price at Amazon — it’s the perfect gift for anyone expecting a baby, and/or anyone who loves names (especially the names of our faith)! Please send me a screen shot of the confirmation email (I need to receive it from you today), with today’s date visible in the screen shot. These consultation requests can be redeemed starting on the Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus: January 3. They’ll be done first come, first served, and completed within three weeks of receiving the request (barring unforeseen circumstances).

(Please note that I’m still accepting regular requests for consultations, which will continue to be done on a first come, first served basis; my Black Friday specials are being offered in addition to these.)

I really wanted these Sancta Nomina Black Friday Specials to bless those in need, so I’m pleased to tell you:

  • Half of today’s proceeds will go to our reader Charlotte, who I’ve posted about before — she continues to suffer from serious medical issues (she was hospitalized this past week with sepsis) and always needs help with her medical bills. (If you’d like to contribute to her directly, you can do so here; she’s grateful for any amount, no matter how small.)
  • The other half of today’s proceeds will go to my local Birthright, which does an amazing job providing needed care to moms and babies. ❤ ❤ ❤

Thank you all for helping to make this community as wonderful as it is!! I’m so grateful for you all!!

I’m jumping into the Black Friday craziness with my own little deal: Today all my Ordinary Consultations are $10 only! (Regular price: $50)
