It’s Time for Another Giveaway!

Update: The comments are now closed! I’ll see you tomorrow morning as we reveal our TEN winners. Have a great day, ladies!


Happy middle-of-the-week to each of you!

It is a beautiful day here in Houston! It’s almost perfect spring weather, which is a compete treat especially compared to the weather we’ve endured recently. It’s either been really hot and humid (shocker!), or really nasty thunderstorms. In fact, yesterday was 100% chance of rain all day and it did just that. The best part about the rainy days at LPM are our shoes; three of us chose to trade in our typical work shoes for rain boots yesterday and it was a cute sight, if I do say so myself. We were giddy. Y’all, it really is the small things. I hope wherever you are, despite your weather or circumstances, you’re able to find delight in something as small as rain boots, silly or small as they may seem.

Anyway, can you believe it’s already been a week since our last giveaway? All of the sudden I realized today was the day to reveal our next fun giveaway so my fingers went to typing. It snuck up on me!

Do y’all remember (and I bet you do because it happened to be a pretty popular post and you also happen to have a sharp memory), when our Siesta Mama asked you to share with each other something really random that you love? That particular day she was gushing over her Bible atlas and felt the urgent need to share with you the joy it brings her. I distinctly remember her telling me she was posting a fun, random blog that day so that I could be watching for comments, and watch for comments I did! Y’all didn’t just come through; y’all went above and beyond with over one thousand comments or something fun like that. We were really tickled! Needless to say, people are passionate about things they love.

To refresh your memory, here is a picture of the Bible atlas.

To make a really long story short (I know, I love words), B&H Publishing Group was really generous and sent us ten Holman Bible Atlases to give away on our blog, just like the one she gushed over! Y’all, how kind was that? So, today not just one, but ten of you will be receiving this amazing Bible atlas.

This is the box of atlases sitting in my office.

For a chance to win here is what you need to do:

1) Make sure your comment has your first and last name.
2) Please comment only one time to give everyone a fair chance.
3) For fun, and you don’t have to do this to win, but it would be really fun to hear, if you could give away one book to anybody, what would it be?
4) Lastly, your comment on this post automatically enters you into this contest. So if you are not interested in winning a Bible atlas, please hold your comments until after the winner is selected. This will help us as we randomly select our winners. Thank you so much!

That’s all ladies! We’ll keep comments open for 24 hours and close the giveaway at 4:00 EST Thursday afternoon.

Also, like I’ve stated before, Australia is 16 hours ahead of Houston time, so when Beth and Amanda wake up it’ll be time to start the second conference. I know for a fact Beth and the team would covet each of your prayers as they labor with joy to teach God’s Word and share His gospel with this next group of ladies. If you’ve been following them on twitter, it’s been obvious that God has blessed their time there. In fact, I saw that they got to feed kangaroos. How fun is that? I’m with you, though, I can’t wait to hear and read all about it upon their return. Let’s pray they end strong in Jesus name!

Alright, ladies, time to hear from you! Be sure to check back Friday morning as I reveal our winners!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

    What an awesome giveaway!! I have no idea what book I would give away…though I just finished reading The History of Love (it’s a novel) and would love for someone else I know to read it so I could discuss it…but that sounds like a selfish reason!

      If you haven’t read “Wednesday’s Were Pretty Normal” or “1000 Blessings” both of those are amazing as well. I am praying for you today and for your family.

    The one book that I would give away (and have) is the ESV Study Bible. It’s sitting next to me right now because I’m currently working on Ecclesiastes for Sunday School. Study helps are not optional for that book!

    If I could give away one book it would be “Family Driven Faith” by Voddie Baucham Jr. Excellent book and a call to action to get in the game with our families.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    If I could give away one book to anyone and everyone, other than the Bible, it would have to be Francis Chan’s “Crazy Love.” It’s one of those books that you have to read more than once for all the different aspects of the message to sink in, and I’ve been blessed upon each perusal. God loves you! – now what will you do with that? Great stuff!

    I would love to win this atlas. I would give away the Bible. I went on a trip to east Asia..and it was rewarding to give away Bibles.

    The one book I would give away would be The Practice of the Presence of God by Brother Lawrence. It gives practicle tips on how to remember that we are always in the presence of God.

    I had a hard time choosing just one book.

  34. 34
    Karen Kunte says:

    I would give away The Message. I love how it makes the Word so simple. Thanks for the giveaway!

    What a cool atlas. Thanks for the chance to win. I really like the book “The Ultimate Gift” by Jim Stovall

    Melissa Bell says:

    I started giving away the Bible! We keep gallon baggies in the car filled with a Bible, an emergency blanket, and snacks. We give these to homeless people that stand on the corner or at the intersection. I would love a copy of the atlas. I really love to get “all in” to my studies.

    Mandy Monson says:

    I think I’d give Angela Thomas’s devotional Choosing Joy. It’s really helped me keep a good attitude even in tough times.

    Thanks so much for offering this giveaway!

  41. 41
    Bethany says:

    I’m trying to resist the urge to just say the Bible. 🙂 Outside of that, I’d probably recommend “Choosing to SEE” by Mary Beth Chapman. It feels like I know about so many people who have endured tragedies, and many of them could benefit from reading how well the Chapmans have handled sudden loss and extreme heartache.

    I’d give away Praying God’s Word.

    I would give away a copy of God’s Word! Please don’t take this as a bragging comment. I recently got to give away a Bible to a coworker whose husband was having open heart surgery. She is not a believer, but she told me how much it has helped her. I pray that one day she comes to know Jesus in a real, personal way.

    Marissa says:

    What a great giveaway! Thank you!

    As for the book I’d give away, well, because I’m a book lover at heart, I can’t just name ONE book.

    It would have to be a tie between Hind’s Feet on High Places, any of Tolkein’s or George Macdonald’s fantasy, anything by Robert Farrar Capon, N.T. Wright, or C.S. Lewis, and, at the risk of shameless self-promotion, my own novel, STORYBOUND, which comes out from Harper Collins in less than two weeks. Eeeeep!

    Thanks! Marissa Burt

    Gen Moyer-Groff says:

    I put this atlas on my Amazon wish list as soon as I read how much Beth loves hers! If/when I’m given the opportunity, I’d give someone the NIV Chronological Bible. I’ve been enjoying it so much- what a neat way to read through the Bible:-)!

    Shelly Hough says:

    The books I read the most these days are children’s books. Some of our favorites are Fix-it Duck and Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! These two always bring giggles!

    Ann Marie Carleton says:

    Oh how I LOOOOVE books so it is so hard to choose one. But I would say The cross and the Switchblade or THE Heavenly Man. See I couldn’t resist and cheated by picking two. They both left a forever mark on my life. Both are true stories Of miracles and lives changed!!

    Sherry Mendez says:

    I would love to win this! I would give the book “Created to Be His Helpmeet” away to all wives!

    Hmmm, I would have to give Mindy Kaling’s “Why Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?” to my best friend, Stephanie, because I know she’d laugh as hard as I did while reading it!
