More Cool Give-Aways

Today is the big day for me to announce the winner of “What Every Husband Needs from His Wife” from Wednesday’s post. It’s so hard to imagine only giving one of you this book. I want every one of you to win a copy! I told God about my little dilemna, and guess what? Late last night after my event, I checked my email and GOD ANSWERED! Christy Leake wants to help me give more than one book because her heart was so moved by all the stories and comments, too. I’m flying home this morning, then headed to SC for my half-marathon tomorrow but somehow I’m going to contact Christy so we can work out the details. We may do a matching gift-give-away so if you want to help please visit Christy’s blog and leave a comment on her Cool Christmas Give-away post and we’ll be working on this together.

I’ll wait to wait to announce those winners next Tuesday night (once we figure out how many we can have). Be sure to keep coming back to see if you’re one of them!

And there’s more…I’ll be giving away 4 additional gifts to 4 winners on Monday night as part of Lysa’s TerKeurst Cool Christmas Give-Away! Here is what you could win:

  • $10 Target gift card or $10 Starbuck’s gift card
  • Susie Larson’s – The Uncommon Woman
  • Melanie Chitwood’s – What Every Husband Needs
  • Renee’s Swope’s – Mining for Gold in the Heart of Your Child Chart and Cd

Please leave a comment below this post if you’d like to be one of my Cool Christmas give-away winners. If you’d like to be part of the marriage give-away be sure to go here. And for more cool Christmas give-away’s, be sure to hop over to Lysa’s blog by clicking on the Cool Christmas give-away button above.

Happy Friday!

    Hey There,
    Hope you have a great weekend, praying for you as you speak.
    What amazing book giveaways!
    They are worth reading twice. And what better way to enjoy the books then with a latte from Starbucks on a cold winters day.
    Everyone cannot win of course so I recommend you purchase these books to read if you aren’t the winner.
    Blessings,
    Margaret

  14. YEA!!! I love it when God works like that!! Isn’t He just awesome in how He moves and prompts people to accomplish things?! I was worried that with all the comments posted, your trip, your long hard week, that my email might get lost in it all. I’m glad it didn’t.

  15. I am so happy that God has led me to your blog. I was searching for something on Wednesday morning and happened upon your article on RESPECT and it was exactly what I needed that day and every day.

    I must confess that I tend to be very independant and don’t include my husband in things the way that I should and your blog has really hit home with me, exactly what I need.

    I would love to be entered in your give-aways. It has only been 2 days since I started “tuning” in, but I can assure that I will be here every morning in the future.

    You are a blessing…God Bless,
    Tammy
