Books I'm Giving Away!

The party is over, so I'll be choosing random numbers from the comments page of the Ultimate Blog Party Post to give away these wonderful books. If you are a winner, I will email you or comment on your blog so that you can choose which book you'd like. Except that last person won't get a choice, though. Oh well! We'll just assume you're getting the one reserved especially for you!

Book 1: The Easterville Miracle
Melody Carlson. "When surrounded by brightly colored eggs, fuzzy chicks and chocolate bunnies, it's easy to forget what Easter is truly about. It's no surprise that the villagers in Easterville have completely lost sight of the reason behind their celebration. But when a curious boy visits a wise old man, they join forces to create a visual reminder that will show the townsfolk of Easterville the true meaning of Easter." I have TWO of these to give away!

Book 2: I Want to Teach My Child About Values
Marcy W. Bryan. "Busy parents like you long for help, hints, and solid strategies to enable their kids to learn the importance of having solid moral values. From love, forgiveness, and respect to compassion and honesty, I Want to Teach My child About Values offers clear, concise information about the impact of God-centered values ...."

Book 3: The Big Black Book for Parents
Blaine Bartel. "Your kids are worth it. Get to the bottom line when it comes to raising your teens. Blaine Bartel, one of today's leading youth specialists, will take you there with short, scriptural lists that will give you the edge in helping your teen." PS: Blaine Bartel used to head up Oneighty in Tulsa.

Book 3.b: 7 Absolutes to Pray over Your Kids
"As a parent, you want to do everything you can to help your kids--most importantly, praying for them. But what exactly should you pray?" This is a very small book, about 3 1/2 x 5, only 86 pp, so I'll include it with The Big Black Book!

Book 4: I Want to Teach My Child Manners
Jennie Bishop. "Busy parents like you long for help, hints and solid strategies to enable their kids to learn how and when to use good manners. From proper behavior and politeness to knowing when to speak and when to list, I Want to Teach My Child About Manners offers, clear, concise information about the impact of manners ...."

Book 5: A Busy Woman's Guide to Prayer
Cheri Fuller. "Does the Apostle Paul's command to 'pray without ceasing' make you think Easy for him to say! He didn't have my schedule! Certainly, Paul never corralled a houseful of energetic kids on a school day or taught children's church to three-year olds. Never worked full-time, cared for aging parents and juggled multiple responsibilities. So where on earth are women supposed to find the time to fit in a continuous prayer life that is also joyful?"

Thanks for linking me on your blogroll, that just made my day! I am a little nervous today because it looks like airline ticket prices went up quite a bit and I still haven't booked a flight to NC. Hopefully they will level out again before June!

Have a good weekend....

Susanne said...

Great books, Linda. Wow, Blaine Bartell. He used to be the youth leader in a fledgling church close to here when he first started out. He was a pretty powerful youth leader.

Linda, love the new look of your blog, but I'm having a bit of a hard time reading the text. Think I liked the bolded text a little better. But maybe it's because I need a new prescription for my bifocals :-(
