Are you ready for it???

Here is the contest you've all been waiting for!

What I am giving away...


The reason I am giving it away...

I read this book at a time in my life when I was really questioning the reason for our infertility and struggling very intensely to believe that God would fulfill the promise He made to me. This book (among other things) was very instrumental in my making it through that time. Now, I happen to have a BRAND NEW extra copy, and I can think of nothing more appropriate to give away than the gift of HOPE in Jesus Christ, which is evident in this book.

Who should enter?...

Why, everyone, of course! And, if you've already read it or don't particularly want to read it? I'm sure there is someone in your life who needs to read it! :-) Here's what the dedication of the book has to say about that:


'Nuff said. Here's how you enter:

1 chance for simply posting a comment on this post saying whether you would keep the book for yourself or give it away.

1 chance for being or becoming a follower of this blog. Leave a comment stating that you are either way. ***this requires that you have a blogger account, but not necessarily your own blog***

1 chance for sharing this contest with your readers via a post on your blog. Be sure to link and then leave a comment here!

1 BONUS chance if you can tell me in a comment how in the world I can add a twitter feed to my blog! LOL! I've searched google and twitter high and low, and I can't find any directions. ;-) Sorry, everyone. Someone has already posted a tip for this, so this chance is going bye-bye. :-) Thanks, blessedmomto7! It truly was a BONUS for you! :-)

OK, now that is potentially 4 3 chances for each of you to try to win this contest!

The contest will officially close NEXT Friday, January 30, 2009 at 5 p.m. EST, and the winner will be chosen through www.random.org.

One more thing... I keep thinking of things! If you don't have a blogger account, please at least leave your name and some way for me to contact you in case you win! Otherwise, I can't.

Oh, and don't worry that your comment doesn't show up immediately. I have it set for me to approve all comments so that I don't get weirdos showing up. ;-) Which would be none of you, of course! :-)

UPDATE: ONE FINAL INSTRUCTION: Please make sure to do separate comments for each of the 3 possible entries. Since I am using www.random.org to select the winner, each comment will go along with an entry. i.e. if you are a follower, leave a SEPARATE comment saying that. Unless you only want one entry. ;-)

Now, hop to it all my bloggy friends!

Living in His JOY, HOPE, and PEACE...

Hey! Here is my comment to enter and I'm already a follower...

The book looks really good and while I'm not going through a HUGE challenge in my life...I am going through a waiting time SO I would read the book then pass it on to my cousin who is going through a divorce and custody battle right now. She could really benefit from it. If I don't win, I might just have to go get a copy for myself. Thanks for sharing it with us and giving us the chance to win!

Blessings.

I already am a follower, and here is the comment....I would keep it for myself to read, then pass it along to a friend; I have a few in mind. And I will go link this post and contest on my blog! Sounds like a great book, I may have to go find it in the store if I dont win : )

Too funny that you are doing a contest today & you get an extra entry for being a follower, because I was coming over to follow you today, because I have been meaning to get over here for days now. Guess I picked a good day to follow:)

Lynds said...

I found this giveaway from my friend Michelle #3. What a great giveaway! If I won, I dare say I'd read it, then pass it on to Michelle. :)

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving an encouraging comment. I appreciate your prayers, and I will pray for you as you walk this journey. God is so good and so faithful to meet our needs! As far as the contest...I would probably read the book and then share it with someone else if I found it encouraging.

Blessings to You,
Kelly G

Its Dawn again, sorry I forgot to say I would keep the book to read myself and then pass it along to family and friends. A few of us are just trying to find our "faith". We have lost our way and trying really hard to find it. This book may be what we need to read. Thank you again.

Well, Not Me Monday brought me to you, and I think that is the book that I need to read myself. It sounds like just the thing I have been looking for. So if I don't win it, maybe I should go and buy it! Count me in! :)
