Drummond explained on her Facebook page that her silver bracelet has a special meaning. It is engraved with the first line of the Prayer of St. Francis. During a virtual Q and A to promote her latest book, Frontier Follies, Drummond spoke about the bracelet, reports The Pioneer Woman website.

“I never take this off, and it’s a bangle that says, ‘Lord make me an instrument of thy peace,’” says Drummond during her question-and-answer session. “It’s the first line of the Prayer of St. Francis. I’ve worn it for probably 10 to 12 years, but it always reminds me that making peace is never a bad idea. So, no matter what’s going on, if I get little glimpses of it throughout the day, it’s a good reminder.”

If you want the same bracelet Drummond wears, you’re out of luck. She says the bracelet she wears has been discontinued. However, she included a link to James Avery on her Facebook page.

The store sells bracelets similar to the one she has. The link Drummond shared takes you to a page with a silver bracelet that has the verse Philippians 4:13 on it, which says, “I can do all things in Him who strengthens me.” This sterling silver bracelet costs $160.

If you’re in the public eye, it’s a matter of time before you encounter internet bullies. During an interview at the 2013 BlogHer conference, Drummond discussed how she got her start. At one point the host asked Drummond for her advice for bloggers dealing with online trolls. Here’s what the Food Network star said about dealing with online hate:

Don’t let them zap your creativity, don’t let them take what you have created. Don’t let them fill you with fear… My approach, and I don’t like to give this as advice, but my approach is a little bit based on the prayer of St. Francis, which is ‘make me an instrument of your peace.’ I don’t want to put it back out there. So, for me, it has always stopped on my doorstep. It would be a disproportionate response considering the good I have experienced and the kindness, for me to turn my eyes to the bad. That’s been my approach so far.
