I've been a lurker on your blog - how did I miss that you contributed to Daily Seeds?

I'm hoping to win tickets to the release at Moody here in Chicago. :o) I'm so anxious to get my hands on that book!

Mary Beth Bradshaw

This is my first time on your blog. I came from "the preacher's wife."

I would love to have the book. How cool that you are a featured contributor.

AND I loved your blog about morning and evening schedules. I needed that encouragement today... me the unorganized woman! HA

Gail Sowell

I would love to be entered in your drawing. The book looks wonderful!


This looks like a wonderful book!


Just linked to your blog from Trying Traditional - excited to have found you. :) Read all of your recent posts, and will be adding you to my RSS Feed. I love seeing a woman who is so happy in the role God has placed her - greatly encourages me on the days my little ones (DD3yo, DD1yo, and watch a 1.5yo) are trying to break me. ;) As Gary Ezzo says, one day your child will wake up and decide 'this is it. Today I will break mom, or die trying.' (Ok so that's not an accurate quote, but it's the gist of what he's saying)
Anyways, thanks for the encouraging blog, and for the giveaway.

Meghan Kuyper

Count me in!


This would be a good read!! Thanks for having a contest!
