Blog Brain and a GIVE AWAY!!!!!!

I got blog brain. Blog brain is when you are being inundated by things that you want to say and not enough time to put it all down and then you lose those moments of inspiration. Blog brain. So whenever I get in a funk I read, heck, I read whenever I can, not just when I’m in a funk, but whenever I have a free minute. I am a voracious reader. I consume books like a 12-year-old soccer team consumes pizza. It can be a little scary sometimes. LOL My love of reading is probably the greatest gift my parents ever instilled in me and I am thankful that my daughter has a love for reading and the written word as well. My WH doesn’t worry about me spending tons of money on clothes or shoes or even a cute purse, but boy does he ever start to get nervous when he knows we are going to………THE BOOK STORE….. I love them, love them. Could stay in one for days. Just looking and browsing and discovering the gift that lies between the covers in wait for me to unwrap it.

So, because I can’t get rid of my blog brain and because I want to “share the love” when it comes to books, I am having a contest, actually I am having TWO contest.

But first…(anyone who reads my blog that knows me personally, knows that you have to hang on tight when we have conversations because I am all over the page…)

But first, or would that be second, I gotta tell you about something. If you look over there <--- you will see links to Proverbs 31 ministry and She Speaks. (Come back after you go see, I got more to say) Both amazing ministries. Lysa TerKeurst heads up an amazing group of ladies that I admire, hold in high esteem and pray that I can grow up to be like one day. The Proverbs 31 team has written a wonderful collection of books, they speak all over the country and are so on fire for God that you can get blistered by just being in the same room. If you get a chance to hear any of the ladies from P31 speak go because you will be blessed at the wisdom God imparts in these girls.

So here are the details. If you leave a comment from now until midnight Thursday on my blog you will be entered in a drawing for one of my all time favorite Lysa books, “What Happens When Women Say Yes to God.” This is literally the book that changed my life and helped take the blinders off my heart and allow God’s light to shine through. All you gotta do is leave a comment and I will use my random number picker to pick a winner! I will post on the blog Friday morning (early) who won so be sure to stop back by. Leave an email addy with your comment so that I can let you know if you won.

But wait…you said there were TWO contests… wow, you guys don’t miss a thing.

The second contest is a little bit more involved and rewarded accordingly. Get the word out, not only about my blog but about P31 as well. Let your friends know and have them stop by my blog say hi and leave a comment. All they gotta say is “Hi, Your name here told me to stop by.” Whoever sends the most people by will get Lysa’s brand new book “Becoming More then Just a Good Bible Study Girl.” I keep saying MY BLOG because Lysa won't know what to think if you post on her blog about My contest. LOL. But be sure to say hi to her too.

Wow I got some linky love going on in this blog today. So spread the word, pass it on and go see P31 website and all that they have to offer. It’s all about furthering God’s kingdom and if my blog brain today and a give-away can help make that happen, I’m all about it. Gotta go get ready for work. I hope you all have a wonderful day!

You will have to announce the winner "really" early if you are going to do it Friday morning. Didn't you say we were leaving the house around 4am? Don't put me in the drawing... I've already seen some of "what happens when women say yes to God". Must be an amazing book, because I sure have an amazing wife.
