“Chop, Chop, people, there are free books to be won!”
Thanks, Brit, for sending your readers over here for Friday Give-Away!
Thanks also to Crossway Books. Yesterday and today, Crossway’s efficient publicist, Angie Cheatham, linked readers from Crossway’s blog (Crossway.org) and Crossway’s Facebook page over to this blog.
Four different readers who leave comments on this blog today will win a copy of either The Christian Mom’s Idea Book (Crossway.org) or The Christian Grandma’s Idea Book (Crossway.org). Here’s how it works:
Leave a comment on this blog, and you will automatically be entered into the drawing. You can leave any kind of (upstanding) comment you’d like, but here are a few suggestions:
(2) Mention something memorable that your mom or grandma gave you.
(3) Tell us what you called your grandma . . . Grammy, Oma, Gram-Grams, etc.
It’s that simple! Your comments don’t need to be long – a sentence or two will do. Winners will be chosen by random numbers, not by the content of their comments.
You’ve got the whole day to submit comments. A few people submitted them on Thursday, and yes – they will count, too.
Sometime on Saturday, I’ll assign numbers to each comment, and my husband will perform a very sophisticated drawing process. He will pick four numbers out of one of his hats. We have plenty of those around here – he’s a real hat person. Then, I’ll notify the four winners and they can choose which of the two books they’d like me to send.
I leave you with a story that Dr. Gary Chapman, author of Five Love Languages, contributed to The Christian Grandma’s Idea Book:
“My grandmother Chapman suffered from severe arthritis. Earlier she raised five children, but by the time I came along she was already unable to walk. Someone had to move her from her bed to her chair. That was the circle of her life. She died when I was about five years old, but I remember that when I went to see her she would always tell me a Bible story. I remember sitting on the floor, looking up at her, and listening intently. She had little energy, but she used it to talk about what was important to her. It is a memory that I treasure.” – Dr. Gary Chapman
Thanks for coming by, and I look forward to reading your comments!
