“Undaunted” by Christine Caine: Autographed Books to Give Away!

AND THE WINNERS ARE…

Hey y’all! Lindsee here! You guys sure love a giveaway, don’t you? I hope you know that I laughed my head off at this post. Honestly, I wish I’d of thought of grabbing a copy before heading off to the beach because that would have been brilliant. One thing I learned to be true, you just never know what you’ll miss at LPM when you go on vacation. I’m seriously considering never leaving again for fear of what I’ll get blamed for next. Oh, I kid, I kid.

Without further ado, here are the 20 random winners! And when I say random, I mean random. Only the Lord knew who’d receive a copy. I am posting the comment number and the name beside it so you can double check if YOU are the winner or not. There may be a lot of “Kim’s” out there, so make sure you’re the “Kim” that is #531. Make sense?

#1161 – Missy S.
#174 – Angie McGuffee
#921 – Robin
#882 – Linda E.
#1737 – Wendi Gale
#991 – Michelle Ochoa
#531 – Kim
#400 – Donna
#274 – Carolyn
#1352 – Diana Vigil
#1191 – Elizabeth
#1695 – Ginger
#372 – Lauren Gilliam
#293 – TAMMY
#1870 – Kristi Thetford
#1396 – Susan Lawrence
#1288 – Niki
#543 – Stacee Showalter
#865 – Kristi Steawrt

And last but certainly not least, the winner of the mysteriously gone missing, sandless and plagiarized autograph copy goes to…

#368 – Jodie Luna

If the lucky winners would email me (Lindsee) at blog@lproof.org with your mailing address we’ll get your book to you ASAP! We love y’all so much.

 

 

 

 

Hey, Darlings!

Don’t you love free stuff? Especially really great free stuff? And what if it’s really valuable great stuff? That’s the kind of giveaway we’re having today!

I just happen to be holding in my hands 19 copies of Christine Caine’s brand new book Undaunted.

 

Woooohoooo! Because my ministry brain automatically thinks Siestas (for any of you visitors today, that’s the term of endearment for our LPM bloggers), as soon as the book was out, I told my staff that I wanted to give a stack of copies away to you guys. Undaunted is such a great book and, Child, even if your soul feels like wood that’s been soaking for six months in a tub of water, it will fire you up. If it doesn’t, you better let your Mama take your pulse.

AND because Christine was in Houston on Monday after we’d received the copies in the mail, oh, yes I did indeed have the boldness to say, “Hey, since you’re right here, would you mind signing these?” (Pushing the stacks forward and holding out a pen.)

Maybe you noticed the random number 19. Actually, I ordered 20 to give away but one was missing when I snagged the opportunity to have Christine sign these. We suspect that a copy may have gone with one of our staff members on vacation which we were really happy about because, for starters, we all share books and there were plenty of them so that would be completely normal (it’s a wonder 15 of them weren’t missing). But I am mainly happy about it because it’s making for a much better and more awkward story and I dearly love awkward. As soon as Lindsee that staff member gets back, we’ll see if she if she happens to have it and, if so, it will be too late for Christine to autograph but I will have much glee plagiarizing her name on that one and write underneath it that I did. I might get said staff member to sign it, too. (Please don’t miss the endnote on this post.)

We Moores-Jones-Fitzpatricks got to have the whole Caine family – Nick, Christine, and their daughters Catherine and Sophia – out in the country at my house on Sunday night. I knew I didn’t want to cook supper because we’d have such a short time together and I meant to immerse myself in those kids and my own grandbabies.Here are the Caine girls. Aren’t they adorable??? Catherine is the oldest then that’s Sophia right in front of me. I heard multiple Scripture memory verses from them both and with the sweetest thick Australian accents you’ve ever heard.

SO, I ordered pizzas a day ahead at a really great place in our area and asked Keith to go pick them up after the Caines arrived. At my house we call what I did here “a Moore-der” as opposed to an “order.” If a little is good, more is better. There were also several orders of pasta. It was humiliating and I was made sport of all evening.

In my own defense, we were expecting Keith’s parents who were unable to come. However, they don’t usually eat a large pizza each. We would love to have had Priscilla and Jerry Shirer and their three boys, too, but they had school the next day and their oldest, Jackson, also had football practice. And that is not to be missed. I remember that well, having raised a couple of athletes myself. I wish I could say that we were expecting the Shirers to come when I made the order but alas. No. It was just a tad of an overshoot.

To say we had leftovers is an understatement and I sent them home with the Jones to give to some fun church members who live nearby with a house full of high school boys. I don’t know if the pizzas survived the night. I hope not for my own dignity. Even though I didn’t want to cook supper, I did indeed want to bake. And why??? Because. I am a kickin’ good baker. That’s why. Once again, a Moore-der. That’s two Arkansas buttermilk pies with homemade, rolled-out crust, one 5-flavor pound cake and I don’t have to tell you what the other one is.

Now, how on earth do you get me off track like that?? I constantly chase rabbits with you guys.  This was actually about a book giveaway and a mighty good one at that. Here’s just a page for a teaser.

OK! Go for it, Sister Friends! We’ll do a random drawing of 19 books! Or if the book should appear, we’ll blow the beach sand off of it, plagiarize a signature (and tell you so) just for fun and make it 20!

**Endnote: As it turns out, Lindsee said Staff person did not take the book at all. Yet another had absconded with it. We are in hysterics.  Welcome to Living Proof Ministries.

Surely you know I’m nuts about you.

    AJ says:

    I woke up this morning angry at God for putting me on this earth and that I didn’t have a choice. Matter of fact, I told Him all this before my feet even hit the floor. I also told Him that everything I’ve believed about Him loving me and having a purpose or value for my life is a lie. The last six years have been the worst ever and I have been constantly seeking God and praying without ceasing for Him to reveal His purpose and significance for my life, and that if He won’t change my circumstances He will change me. I’m still waiting – in silence – in the desert. So today I woke up and decided to give up on trusting Him. I’m just too exhausted to hope anymore (let alone believe there will ever be joy). So I get a cup of tea and open my computer to see what’s happening in the world, and there on FB a friend posts Ephesians 3:14-21. And then I see Beth’s blog post (it’s one of my home pages). I’m now sitting at my computer sobbing, feeling that my Father has spoken directly to me through you both. Even if my name is not drawn for the book giveaway, I just want you to know that one single page you posted has spoken to me personally. He has used it to show me that He heard me this morning. Thank you Abba Father, and to Beth for being faithful to His ministry and for His glory.

      Dear AJ, if you do not win this book I will buy a copy for you and stick it in the mail. I am 38 years old with four children. Six years ago I was diagnosed with a heredetary heart issue. I was told I would not live without a transplant. I have had days where I was so sick I did not even want to be alive and days I would cry out to God why me. I felt like God blessed me with an amazing husband and these four amazing children to take me away. Through it all though God has been so faithful. We have been able to minister to teens through our kids bringing them to our home. This is at a time when I felt useless and felt that I had no purpose because I could not even get off of the couch. I had many days when I called out angry. This past year has been a year of miracles. I was the fifth one in the world to receive a trial surgery that has drastically improved my health. God used me from the couh for years, now I am able to walk into churches and groups and have been blessed to laugh and cry with these women about Gods faithfullness. I was terrified to speak and God told me that I needed to tell my story. God has used so many to speak to me or for me when I was too tired or angry to even call out. I see that he worked miracles in my life even when I was mad. I beleive that is because I had faithful people praying for me along the way. I do not know your situation, but God does, and I would be honored to pray for you through this time like others did for me. I will be praying for you and and I am serious when I say if you do not win I would love to send you a book. Or if I win you can have mine! May God bless you in these days sweet Sister.

      Dear AJ,

      I am praying for you. Father has not left your side, he is carrying you right now. I have been in the pit too and I can tell you there is light (Jesus). Just keeping reaching up and He will pull you out.

      “I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security.” (Jeremiah 33:6 NIV)

      “Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.” (Hebrews 12:3 NIV)

      “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6 NIV)

      “In my distress I prayed to the LORD, and the LORD answered me and set me free.” (Psalm 118:5 NIV)

    I live in Tennessee now (since 1985) but originally from San Antonio. That’s no ordinary sheet cake, that’s a TEXAS SHEET CAKE which I still make here in Tennessee and will always call it a TEXAS SHEET CAKE!!!!! 🙂

    Loved reading your blog this morning, made me laugh and miss my Texas home.

    I would love an opportunity to receive Christine’s new book. Thanks so much.

    Beth: God led me to Christine’s book and it was definitely a Divine Appointment. I ordered one for me and one for my Sister in Christ, BFF and ministry partner. We are starting a ministry to offer legal help, education and resources to women in crisis, very similar to what Christine is doing. I just finished the book and it is amazing–so like what God has put in my heart and He is encouraging me with it. I’m so jealous of you getting to meet with Christine and her family!! I want to sit down with her over coffee and drink in her spirit and knowledge. Thank you for making it available to so many. You are amazing.

    What a fun story! I’m constantly second guessing dinner quantities when I’m hosting or serving, and on more than one occasion have ended up with pounds of potatoes, or gallons of chili left over. Praise God for freezers!
