take 2 - FREEFALL to FLY giveaway

"Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;
for His steadfast love endures forever!"

So, it turns out my first blog giveaway was a total flop. (Sad face.) But, Rebekah Lyon's book has been such a tremendous blessing to me, I'd like to have a do-over and try again. This time, hopefully, I'll be able to make it a bit easier for everyone using the ever-so-famous Rafflecopter (see the app at the bottom of this post). This time I'm adding more options on how to win - you can even come back each day and add more entries. Hopefully we'll have a winner this time!!! :-)

It's been a crazy couple of weeks for me. My precious family took me away for a long weekend to celebrate my birthday! We rented an awesome cottage at our favorite vacation getaway up in Washington and had an AMAZING time! God is SO good. We got in lots of swimming, biking, walking, hanging out, reading, talking - all encapsulated with my most favorite things LOVE and NON-STOP laughter! We had a BLAST. Geoff and I even snuck in a date night and hung out listening to some live music at the local pub -thanks to our teenager! (BIG smile.) I told her it would make the best birthday gift ev-ah. It did. The kids had fun, and so did we!

Geoff and I came home sick. Bluck. But hey, if you're gonna be sick, sometimes it's nice to have a buddy who understands and isn't afraid of your germs. ;-) Thankfully, his cold wasn't too bad and he's back to feeling healthy.

Sadly, I'm on DAY 11...ack. But I'm still smiling, despite being stuck in bed with a raging cough. We've had some gorgeous weather in Oregon, so it's hard to be down, even when I'm under the weather. My son has been a SPECTACULAR helper - and my family has been blessing me with tons of grace.

All that to say, my initial efforts with this AWESOME book were not my shown by the lack of even one entry. However, as an aspiring author, my heart's desire is to support other authors/writers in their giftings. Will you please help me out and enter my NEW and IMPROVED giveaway, Sweet Friends?

If this is your first time to my blog. Welcome! It's nice to have you here. Following this post is my initial giveaway with more links. There is also the review I posted sharing my thoughts on Rebekah's labor of love.

A special shout out to my friend, Susan, who said to re-post my giveaway as she forgot to enter. Thanks for your support, Friend!

I'm hoping to feel better soon, because God has been doing some AMAZING things in my life and my family. I am so thankful for His ongoing love, grace and compassion towards me. I'm really excited to share what God's been doing and reconnect with all of you. I'm so sorry I have been out of contact for so long.

So, please enter this fantastic giveaway; I promise this is a MUST have read. And, as always, keep your eyes on Jesus, and KEEP LIVING A BLESSED LIFE!

Hey! The thingy wouldn't let me comment, I think it's an IPad thing. One gifting God has given me is creativity:) My reason for not always using it....time:)

So glad to see you are doing the giveaway again! One gift the Lord has given me is a desire to hear people's stories. It is amazing how many people never feel "heard."
