Announcing My FIRST Give-Away ~ EVER…

While at The Relevant Conference, I was blessed to meet and chat with sweet Emily P. Freeman.  Her book, GRACE for the GOOD GIRL, has fast become one my favorite books!  I so believe in this work, I purchased one for her to sign, specifically to give away on my blog.

Here’s what a few notables have said about Emily’s book…

Emily Freeman is one of those rare writers: profoundly biblical, lyrical, transparent—memorable. Her emancipating words on these pages offer the needed keys to all the good girls longing to take wing—and soar home to God’s heart. —Ann Voskamp, New York Times bestselling author of One Thousand Gifts

Grace for the Good Girl is full of Spirit and truth. It’s gentle and bold, tender and powerful. —Holley Gerth, Co-Founder of (in)courage…

In the midst of coping and living out my life without so much as a clue as to how to unravel the story, Grace for the Good Girl found me. With book in hand, I’m opening doors in my heart that hold stuff I thought I’d dealt with. I’m facing the Good Girl and looking her straight in the eye. But this time, I have a friend, a tribe. —Stacey Thacker, 29 Lincoln Avenue

With that said, I will be giving away a SIGNED copy of Emily’s book, GRACE for the GOOD GIRL next Tuesday, November 8, 2011.

DEADLINE to enter is 11:59 pm CST, Monday, November 7, 2011

Now, how do you enter?

1)  Please subscribe to my blog through my RSS Feed, via email, Google Friends or Networked Blogs.

2)  Please leave a comment on this post letting me know you’ve followed.

That’s it…

Then, on Tuesday, I’ll use Random.Org to choose a random number based on the number of comments received. That number will indicate the winner.  The winner will be announced in my Tuesday’s post.

I’m pumped about the give-away, but I’m more excited I have the chance to place this incredible read into someone else’s hands.  That’s simply awesome!
