SITS Giveaway!!

I'm participating in the Spring Fling over at The Secret is in the Sauce and I've decided to give away a couple of books! 2 winners! Woot woot! So enter the giveaway and take a few minutes to check out my blog. I promise you'll find some interesting stuff here...for instance, Spongebob taking a poop. I know you haven't seen that anywhere else! ;) Or maybe you need suggestions for toys. I can tell you the best toy ever and also the absolute worst toy ever! Have fun reading and I'm glad you're here!

The first book I'm giving away is The Love Dare. Okay, I haven't seen the movie yet. But I plan on it. I've heard it has a fantastic message. Not the best acting, but a wonderful movie, nonetheless. The book is amazingly simple...it lists a love "dare" to do every day for 40 days. Simple stuff but really powerful. Funny how we forget to truly show love once our lives get all crazy. I'm talking about me here. Why is it easier to get irritated than to have patience?


Next is The Strong-Willed Wife. I should probably be keeping this one for myself (shhh...don't tell hubby I admitted that!). In big, bold-lettered words on the back it says, "Submission isn't a four letter word." Love it! The book "presents how the scriptural concept of authority is designed to be a vital part of a loving, secure relationship. You'll discover freedom in letting your husband lead, because submission doesn't mean denying who you are." Yep, this is a definite must read!


{Can you tell that marriage has been on my mind lately? I've got marriage books out the wazoo. Never, never, never stop working on your marriage. It's way too important to just let it slide.}

So here are the rules. Leave me a comment. Plain and simple. I won't make you follow me (although I'd love it if you did) and I won't make you tweet about it. Just leave me a little note letting me know you stopped by. You can say whatever you want. If you're feeling especially nice and/or wordy, link me up to your favorite blog. (I love crafty blogs and homeschooling blogs. Oh, and blogs with recipes and homemaking blogs. Blogs about organization are good; and blogs that make me laugh, too. I love all blogs!) Not like I don't spend enough time on the computer already but I enjoy sharing the bloggy love! If you don't have a blog, be sure and leave your email address so I can get in touch with you. That's it. Oh, and I'll use a random number picker thingy on Saturday so be sure and leave your comment by midnight, Friday the 13.

Thanks for stopping by!

Kristin said...

I would love to win. Hubby and I are just finishing up a Fireproof bible study class and were talking about the love dare book the other day.

Tori said...

Wow both of these would be so good for me. I'm not married yet, but I'm in a very serious relationship and I've been curious about the love dare and this other book sounds like something I def should read! Good stuff!

Shelley said...

I have the Love Dare book. My husband is a firefighter and a Church gave us a copy of it as part of their mission outreach. But I don't have the strong willed wife and I think that might just be me. Thanks for the chance and Happy Spring Fling.

Queenie Jeannie said...

Sounds great!! Thank you!

Happy Spring Fling!

Amy said...

I could use more books on self-help. I have one to giveaway on my blog also, so please stop by!

Happy Spring fling-ing! :D

Nessa said...

Hi! This is my first visit to your blog and I know it won't be my last. In fact, I'm going to follow you. I too am trying to be more, in all the ways you are & then some!

Thankks for the chance to win such great prizes! I don't think I'm a strong willed wife, but I know I'm not the helpmeet I need to be either. I'd love to read these books!

Your talking about blogs made me smile! I spend way too much time on the computer reading them! But, as a housewife blogs are often my only connection to the outside world and to people I have things in common with. So, I guess it's not bad that I spend so much time online, as long as I don't forget about thawing the meat for dinner and such. Anyway, I have a giveawy on my blog Ramblings of a Texas Housewife and I'd love it if you visited my cooking/homekeeping blog Texas Housewife's Homemakin' Blog.

Have a blessed day!

Melissa said...

I could really use these books! And I'm really enjoying your blog! We also tried the Glitter Lava you were talking about... Big Mess!

All-American Preppy said...

Congratulations on your baby : ). How exciting. I would love to read both of these books! We saw Fireproof and thought it was incredible! Suprisingly, my husband liked it even more than me. I think that Love Dare book would be a great help to our marriage.

Megan said...

Great books! I'm doing the Love Dare right now (you can find a link on the right side of my blog). I'd love to pass the book on to someone else if I were to win so they could do it as well. And I'm definitely strong willed so I should probably keep that for myself. ;0P

Dina said...

I saw this give away right away on Spring Fling, right before I put up my own give away. Then I couldn't find it again, until now! So glad I did!
