Thanksgiving Weekend Give Away

*Give Away has Ended*

“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy.” Philippians 1:3-4

I do. I thank my God every time I remember you.

Some of you I know very well. Others of you I met once at an event or retreat. Many I have gotten to know only by your screen name as I read your comments. Still others of you have lurked around this site, peeking in once in a while, yet never commenting.

That is okay. I still thank God every time I remember you.

In my prayers, I pray with joy for all of you. (For “y’all, if you are in the south :-))

I rejoice that somehow, our paths have crossed.

I rejoice that we can connect over  the week due to this tool called the Internet.

I rejoice when I see you hop on and leave a comment.

I rejoice even more when one of you hops on to encourage another; someone you have never even met.

You have refreshed and encouraged me by your very presence here. For I know your time is precious. You have families and jobs to do, at work or at home; you have responsibilities and time commitments….and dirty laundry and dishes. So I am thankful each time you carve out a minute to stop by.

Really I am.

To show my gratitude, I want to give you a chance to win two sweet gifts. Not the sugary, fattening kind. These two gifts will sweeten your life.

Your waistline however, will be unaffected.

First, I am giving away a copy of a teaching CD by my sweet friend and our Proverbs 31 resident President Lysa TerKeurst.

It is called Fear-less and Thank-ful. In this message, Lysa asks the questions, “What if you had the confidence to face anything that happens? What if you knew that good could come out of any circumstance?”  Well, as a wife to Art, mother to five children, and committed ministry leader, this gal is no stranger to the fears that women face. This encouraging message will strengthen your faith in God as Lysa shows how to:

  • Reduce controlling fear by placing your deepest desires into God’s hands.
  • Embrace a sense of worth by realizing your desirability to Christ
  • Apply proven biblical examples to modern-day decisions
  • And make your walk with God an exhilarating journey

And ladies, this is not just a “pie-in-the-sky-three-point-slick-yet-spiritual-message” given by someone who happens to be a good speaker. This gal doesn’t just give this message. She lives this message. I know. I am close enough to her to vouch for it. Experiencing it will help you too, shifting your perspective from fear to faith.

Secondly, and just for some Thanksgiving-time fun, I’ll be sending along with the CD a bottle of Bath and Body Works Pecan Passion body lotion. Thick, creamy, and oh-so sweet-smelling. I’m talkin’ the  “if-you-are-married-don’t-put-it-on-if-you-haven’t-got-time-for-your-hubby” kind of sweet smelling. It will drive him crazy and he’ll be suddenly in the mood for a little….well…shall we say horizontal fellowship? :-) Trust me. I know.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Tell us one thing you are thankful for. It can be just one word.

You’ll be entered in this ‘sweet’ give away if you do.

NOTE: Be sure to join us Monday as we kick off the second annual 12 Days of Christmas giveaway. Each day one of my P31 sisters will be featured and will be offering way cool gifts just for you! See you then!!!

Thankfully Yours,

  1. I am so thankful for God’s love, grace, and salvation, and the wonderful family and friends he has blessed me with. Our God is an awesome God!

  2. I am thankful for what God is doing in my husband. When we got married he was interested in raising our children in church, but he had little to say about faith matters. Now, though, he has devotional time with our four-year-old each evening and has been playing my new Casting Crowns CD over and over in the car. He was even singing along this weekend! I’m so excited!

  3. I am so thankful for the wonderful gift God gave me in my husband! and for the trials we’ve gone through this past year. Life changing events, like my husband’s layoff, and a new job, another layoff, my oldest son graduating, moving out, then him getting engaged, and a baby on the way (my first grandchild). The loss of my Grandmother. I know that God works through all things, and it is through trials that he can complete me. James 1: 1-6, Philippians 1:6, and Jeremiah 29:11

  4. I am thankful that our new state (CA) is finally starting to feel a little more like home. Moves halfway across the country are so challenging.

  5. I am most thankful for the generosity God has showered on my family. He has showed up every single day in our lives and has blessed us beyond what we humanly deserve. It hasn’t been monetary generosity which is what we often think of when we think of generous. It has been about his work in our lives over the course of the last few months. I am blessed beyond measure!

  6. Karen:
    I’m most thankful for my husband, who is such a good man in so many ways, but I most of all appreciate how he loves me. My children have a healthy concept of their Heavenly Father because of their earthly example. We are blessed.

  7. I am thankful for so many things! For family, friends (good eats-I’m still FULL) and God’s love. May we all find peace and joy this holiday season and remember what it is truly all about!

  8. I am thankful for so many things, but I am very thankful that I came across this ministry of P31 women!
    Thank you!
