Celebrating 1,000 POSTS!!

I am calling you all to celebrate with me 1,000 posts as a blogger with a Giveaway! I wish I had the capability of giving away a laptop or some other HUGE deal to thank you all for your faithful readership over the years (I’ve been blogging since 2005). But, alas, we are still trying to come up with the money to replace our furnace from the spring basement flood! I have, however, come up with some things that I hope you will find fun, helpful and entertaining.

1,000 posts giveaway

Blogging has been such a joy for me. To me it means that I can use my spiritual gift and help encourage and, to some small extent, mentor women in their quest for a deeper walk of faith and equipping as godly wives and mothers. But it has been YOU who have made my blog a success. I’m not a one of the HUGE and SUPER-POPULAR bloggers, but I have a community of faithful and sweet readers that have become lovely friendships with me over the years.

So, I am offering a Mish-Mash Giveaway! (unfortunately the giveaway is only available for those in the US)

Not 1 big thing, but a bunch of fun things to say Thank You for being a part of this blog for 1,000 posts! I would love for you to share this, but if you don’t, then it just makes it more intimate between us! 😀 And I’m delighted either way. So here’s what I’m offering:

  • A $50 Staples Visa Gift Card
  • A $25 Amazon Gift Card
  • A $15 Starbucks Gift Card
  • $10 Kohl’s Cash (spend $50 and use this as $10 more in cash – donated by Kohl’s)
  • Walking to Bethlehem: A Devotional Journey Through Advent by my friend Katharine Barrett (value $8.99)
  • Once Clear, Still Night, a 31 day Christmas devotional by my very dear friend Terri Groh (value $11)
  • The Hidden Life: Finding Out Why You Matter by my brother-in-law David Megill (value $8.99)
  • A lovely black and white print of a drawing called Eternity by one of my dearest friends Jyvonne Inman (value $32)

AND AS AN EXTRA THANK YOU, I am giving away a FREE pdf copy of my e-book, Cut It Out! How I Feed My Family of 10 for $500 a Month Without Coupons for each one of you! Go to this link and type in:

giveaway

for the coupon code and you’ll be able to download it FOR FREE until midnight on 9/21! So hurry before it runs out!!

This Giveaway will be short in length – just THREE DAYS! It opens Thursday at 12:01 am and closes Saturday night at 11:59 pm. So hurry up and enter and get more opportunities to win if you share it – Tweet it daily for more entries to win!

You have blessed me so much over the years, now let me bless YOU!

P.S. Again, I’m so sorry that this giveaway is only for those who live in the US. I’m afraid that none of the gift cards would work in any country other than the US. I had no idea this would be a problem when I first started. The FREE e-book download IS, however, available to everyone.

  39. I feel like this comment is cheating, since there isn’t any big story about how I know about this blog, I just know about it because you’re my mother. But you being my mother is pretty awesome, so I’ll say it counts.
