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!

    I was on an airplane sitting next to a woman taking her daughter and grandson to a doctor in Sacramento. She and I were talking and she was sharing how hard it has been keeping her faith in God due to the illness of her Grandson. I offered to pray for her and we held hands and prayed right there on the plane. I had the book Believing God and offered to give it to her. She was so appreciative since she hadn’t brought a book to read in the hospital. What a God orchestrated meeting. I love those. It is snowing here in Oregon so enjoy your sunshine.

      Michelle! I have read this book numerous times and I LOVE IT! It carried me through years of visiting my family and prepared me for the visits. And like a de-brief, I would read it on my plane ride back home. I am not a reader, but besides the Word, I have read this book too many times to count and can happily say, I am no longer “Much Afraid”! It is so neat to see that you have read it also! : )

    I usually have a few copies of “The Bait of Satan” by John Bevere on my bookshelf to give away. Every person I have ever given it to has been able to really overcome offenses in their life and find freedom from past hurts! Our church has even used it as required reading for our school of ministry.

  36. 1336

    Cat Mack says:

    The Message (Bible) by Eugene Peterson

    Why was The Message (Bible) written?

    The best answer to that question comes from Eugene Peterson himself:

    “While I was teaching a class on Galatians, I began to realize that the adults in my class weren’t feeling the vitality and directness that I sensed as I read and studied the New Testament in its original Greek. Writing straight from the original text, I began to attempt to bring into English the rhythms and idioms of the original language. I knew that the early readers of the New Testament were captured and engaged by these writings and I wanted my congregation to be impacted in the same way. I hoped to bring the New Testament to life for two different types of people: those who hadn’t read the Bible because it seemed too distant and irrelevant and those who had read the Bible so much that it had become ‘old hat.”

    Michele says:

    Michele Lenhart

    (we’re saying besides the Bible, right?!)
    I would give Homemaking or Lady in Waiting or Molder of Dreams or Chron. of Narnia, LOTR… I’ll stop. :0)

  40. 1340
    Jan Taylor says:

    I would give “Stepping Heavenward”. It was written in 1861. My wonderful, godly mother-in-law gave it to me 10 years ago and I have read it many times. It truly shows the timelessness of what women thru out history think, feel, fear and experience as daughters, wives, and mothers!!

  41. 1341

    Name: Renee Meaux

    I would give away So Long Insecurity because I think every woman on earth needs to read it and apply the truths found within to their lives!

    Tammy Fell says:

    Tammy Fell-NJ If I could give away one book it would be Breaking Free. Reading this book (and taking the class) had a tremendous impact on being set free from over 20 years of grief and guilt over the loss of my brother.

    God bless you Beth, for the amazing gift He has given you through the written and spoken word.
