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!

    As I read the comments, I can see that I am among sisters…..because I too love to give away the book “Jesus Calling”. Most people I give it to tell me, after reading it awhile, that the Lord really ministers to them through it. Yay! That’s why I love to give it!

    Thanks for these giveaways…What a blessing! I know so many of us appreciate the chance to win something that helps us learn and carry on Beth’s tradition of teaching other women.

    I love to give away good books. The latest one is 1000 Gifts by Ann Voskamp. This book has really changed my way of thinking and seeing everything as a Gift.

    Thank you!

    I would give All It’s Meant To Be by Bryan Clark. I actually have given one copy to a dear sister in Christ already. 🙂 It’s a great book, inspiring and true to the Scripture, but not many people read it. So I would like to bless some dear ones with this book!

    Wren Owens says:

    The Bible

    Mandy Johnson says:

    I would give The Shack by William Young to a friend, Jason. His grandparents were murdered by his cousin several years ago and I’ve watched how the anger and hurt have transformed him into a very hard young man. The section on forgivness left me sobbing, thinking of Jason.

  12. 112
    Robin Anderson says:

    The books I’ve given away most are the Bible, Praying God’s Word and The Power of a Praying Woman.

  14. 114
    Angel Haynes says:

    How can I choose just one book to give away? Impossible. 🙂 I’ll cheat a little and pick a category of people to give to….families: The Jesus Storybook Bible. My kids are older and still love it.

  15. 115
    Debbie Bush says:

    “Praying for your Husband” by Stormie Ormatian.

  17. 117
    Lorrie Beth Milton says:

    My favorite book to give away is “Precious Moments with the Savior” by Ken Gire. Then “Passport into Darkness” by Kimberly Smith. Two totally different books. Both absolutely wonderful!

    beckyjomama says:

    Becky Jo Beverly

    I would give …. oh man, I don’t know.

    OK, not to be a teacher’s pet or anything, but I truly think EVERY female should read So Long Insecurity. (That and have Mandisa’s What If We Were Real on their way to school, work, the kitchen, WHATEVER, every single morning.)

    Michele Schroeder says:

    I generally buy books in multiples to keep on hand, so when someone I know of or heard of is in need of encouragement, I have a book to send along with a meal or prayer or simply a note. I also enjoy giving books to the Church library.

  20. 120
    Robert Milton says:

    I like to give away the book “The Oath” by Frank Peretti!

    “Unbroken” by Laura Hillenbrand

  23. 123
    Annie Watts says:

    I would give away the book “Intimacy With God” by Dr. Benjamin A. Sawatsky. I attend church with Dr. Ben and his life has been immersed in missions work. This book reminds us that we are not useful in ministry if we are not intimate with the Father and His Spirit. I’m not quite done with it yet but it has challenged me greatly and I hope his books reaches many to challenge them also!

    Thanks for the fun giveaway!! What a treat today!

    Blessings always for the great ministry you provide…so greatly appreciated by me!

    Kim Everest
    Jesus Calling Devotional…It’s so neat to read in the pretext that Jesus is talking just to me…and so many times the words I’m reading are perfect for that very day!

    Chelsea says:

    I would love to win the Bible Atlas! If I could do a book giveaway, it would be “Loving the Little Years.”

  28. 128
    carrie smith says:

    I would give a copy of Lies young women believe and the truth that sets them free by Nancy Leigh Demoss and Dannah Gresh to every girl in my senior high bible study! It exposes lies that are so prevailent in todays culture, that some girls have accepted as the norm, and combats them with scriptural TRUTH!

  29. 129
    Robin Fenton says:

    So long insecurity…a great read!

  30. 130
    Molly Harrington says:

    I’d give Evidence Not Seen–a biographical, missionary narrative, so it’s easy to read and yet deeply draws you to Jesus!

    I love my new CEV Bible and would love to give several away.

  33. 133

    I would give away Why You Do The Things You Do and/or God Attachment (Dr. Tim Clinton co wrote each of these books…can’t recall the other authors at the moment). I am a counselor and these books are just almost essential reading for most of my clients. Relationships are important, especially the relationship with God. Probably said more than you wanted =0)

  34. 134
    Tatia Cook says:

    Oh mercy…just one? Hmmm…I’ve given “Same Kind of Different As Me” – that’s a beautiful story 🙂 Tear-jerker, and so worth the cry! I’ve seen lots of favorites in the comments…”Redeeming Love” (anything by Francine Rivers), “one thousand gifts”, The Message, “Hind’s Feet”. Looks like I need to get me a copy of “Jesus Calling” 🙂
    Thanks for the chance to win something neat!

  36. 136
    Jennifer Lavin says:

    If I could give away a book right now, it would have to be “The Meaning of Marriage” by Tim and Kathy Keller 🙂 So, so rich!

  37. 137
    Penny Doremus says:

    Right now it would probably be Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, for fiction, and One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp for nonfiction.

    Lahna Wheeler says:

    I would give away Beth’s study on James. What an awesome place the world would be if people practiced what it teaches.

  39. 139
    Barb Spanier says:

    I am currently reading

    Is God a Moral Monster – Making Sense of the Old Testament God by Paul Copan

    It is a great read so far and I it is the type of book I would give to others.

  40. 140
    Elizabeth Rice says:

    The last book I gave as a gift was 1000 Gifts. A treasure!

  41. 141

    I’d give “So Long Insecurity” to a dear friend in South Africa!

  42. 142
    Christie Leveille says:

    Did my giveaway answer have to be a Christian book? If so, I would choose The Shack. If not, I love the book “The Bell Jar” by Sylvia Plath. As an english teacher, I find her fascinating…she was so strange and it just interests me. Hope this is an okay answer as most others suggested a Christian book. 🙂

    Kristine Wilson says:

    I’d give away Power of a Praying Wife – so great for a newly married (or married a long time!) woman.

  44. 144
    Sondra Langle says:

    Hellloooo Lindsee,
    What fun….in the past year I had the opportunity to give a “book” to my daughter’s lesbian partner. Everyone gave her a book for her birthday…guess what she received from me? A John MacArthur Study Bible. Not sure if she has even opened it, but it was the perfect
    time to put God’s Word into her hands. Love you all there, Sondra

  45. 145
    Lynda Rickey says:

    Lynda Rickey – If I could give away one book, other than the Bible, I would give Little House on the Prairie. That was the chapter book that started my lifelong love of reading and now I’m a reading teacher! Go figure.

  46. 146

    31 Days of Praise, a devotional guiding the reader through prayers of praise drawn from Scripture. It was the best college graduation and seminary acceptance gift I received 14 years ago.
