Giveaway! Choose One of Three Books!


Those that know me pretty well call me either passionate or insane, both said with love (smile). God has given our family a ministry. A ministry that often brings me to my knees. It is amazing, awesome, and heart rending. He has placed on our hearts orphans around the world. You can read I Choose to be Blessed. You can read Let Me Tell You About Jesus or The Effect of Economy on Orphans. You can even read my most recent The Blind Side of Adoption…Do You See?, to understand the passion God has placed in our lives.

Today on our blog, we are looking forward to giving away one of three books (it’s your choice)to one of our readers. All have played a major role in our family’s journey.

Book #1: There Is No Me Without You by Melissa Fay Greene
This book is a true story of a woman, Haregewoin Teferra, in Ethiopia whose life was changed by seeing beyond her gates, to the overwhelming need of the orphans there. I was privileged to meet this wonderful woman when bringing Bekah home.

Book #2: Adopting the Hurt Child: Hope for Families with Special-Needs Kids-A Guide for Parents and Professionals by Gregory Keck and Regina Kupecky

Book #3: Parenting the Hurt Child: Helping Adoptive Families Heal and Grow by Gregory Keck and L.G. Mansfield
Both of these books brought home the reality of the hurt these wonderful children have been through. They also show that adoptive parenting may not always be easy, but you are not alone, and great blessings await.

God has been very good to us and I hope the book you choose blesses your life as it has ours.

Remember friends, please leave a way for me to contact you when you comment! We are only able to ship within the United States. Don't forget to tell us which book you want! We will draw a name on Sunday, December 6th. That will mark the date that we have been on the waiting list for referral of our twins from Ethiopia for two months. We couldn't think of a better way to mark the date than share just a little of our passion for these amazing blessings all over the world!

  1. HI! We are also adopting from Ethiopia. We've been waiting for almost 6 months for a little boy. We're getting very excited! :)

    I would love There is No Me Without You. I've read so many other books, but I haven't read this adoption book yet.

    I hope your next months of waiting go quickly!

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright shove...no matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the momentum...it is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
