Okay, so if you’ve been following my blog for the last year’ish or so, you might remember that I did a monthly “Do-Good-Give-Away” and a monthly “Shoppe-Talk-Give-Away” for an entire year. And I thought it was really fun and rather enjoyable (and hopefully you thought so, too), but I wanted to change things up a bit because honestly, I get easily bored with the same-old thing over and over and over. Which probably explains why I never cook the same recipe twice or re-watch the same movie more than once…but probably doesn’t explain why I’ve had the same hair style since 2005 and am still rockin’ my 2002 hoodie. Oh, well…I digress.
So, I’ve spent the past three months mulling (off and on, folks; I promise I’ve lived a little since I started the mulling) over a new direction for my give-away’s for this next year. And after three months of mulling like
wine cider (oops, Freudian slip), here’s what I’ve decided.
Each month, I am going to give away BOOKS…all kinds of BOOKS!!!
Yes, that’s ALL I came up with–“THREE MONTHS! THREE MONTHS,”I say!!! And this, right here, is exactly why I’m not the leader of a big, important company or the President of the United States (I know, I know…you were slightly convinced that I had it in me).
Okay, back to my original point (no more parenthetical inserts), I am going to give away the thing I love.
BOOKS, BOOKS, and more BOOKS!!!
Seriously, I can barely contain my excitement but if I get too excited, the kids will come over and remember I’ve had more than two minutes of peace and quiet and ruin it all!
So, without further book antics, let me introduce you to the first book I am giving away in this new installment of give-away’s that I will be calling, “Books, Books, Books!”
(Don’t judge; I’m a tired mom who is lacking the desire to channel my creative juices, and it’s the best I’ve got right now.)
(I lied. There indeed were more parenthetical inserts.)
Ai yi yi…
So what book am I giving away this month?
I am giving away two copies of God Made All of Me: A Book to Help Children Protect Their Bodies by Justin S. Holcomb and Lindsey A. Holcomb.
And why am I giving away this book?
One: I am passionate about protecting and educating our children.
Two: I am passionate about PARENTS being the ones who initiate godly, honest conversations with their children about the difficult topics of life…especially about topics regarding sex and sexuality.
And what are a few of my favorite line(s) from this book?
“God made every part of your body, and every part of your body is good. Some parts of your body are not for sharing though…”
“You are in charge of your body…”
“Surprise are fun and make people happy. Secrets are different from surprises. Secrets are not nice; they can make people feel confused or sad…”
So how can you win a copy of this book?
In the comment section below, share something on your “Thankful List” this year and on Friday at 4PM (EST), I will randomly select two winners to enjoy a copy of this amazing book.
Oh, and if you don’t win, don’t let that stop you from buying your own copy! Truly, it’s really that good.
