A Carnival of Giveaways

Welcome to a godly girlfriends giveaway carnival hosted by our Proverbs 31 speaker team!

Quick….get your housework (or work-work!) done and carve out a little time to grab a hot drink and hop around to each gal’s site and see what awesome items are being given away. Simply leave a comment on any site you wish. You may just be a winner! (And to make it easy on you, just say “I’m in!” for my giveaway!) You have until the end of  today to enter.


Well, today is all about celebrations.

Although we do up holidays big around our house, I want to take a second to encourage you to celebrate the everyday.

The joy of caring for a sweet, wiggly baby.

The warm feeling you get seeing a struggling child master a new skill.

The touch of a faithful friend’s hug.

A smile from a caring coworker.

The privilege of cooking for your middle-aged man or caring for your aging parent.

Purpose today to delight in the daily days of life.

Most of all, in our loving, delight-ful God!

And I’m hoping one of you delights in a basket-in-a-box full of simple delights from me!

For my contribution to today’s celebration, I am giving away a Winter White Basket centered on Psalm 51:7 “Wash me and I will be whiter than snow” It includes Skin Milk body wash, a white loofah, Winter White Citrus Bath & Body Works lotion, white lily linen and room sprays, white hot cocoa, a white mug and white-chocolate macadamia nut cookies. Along with it, a copy of our book on celebrations entitled Homespun Memories for the Heart: More Than 200 Ideas to Make Unforgettable Moments co-written by myself and friends Kelly Hovermale and Trish Smith.

  1. My daily delight is at the end of the day when we’re all together and enjoying family. We don’t have to do anything special but having family time. I recently discovered the P31 spot and loving the women sharing. I’m in!

  2. I’m in!

    Simple pleasures: hugs from friends you have not seen in months that say ‘I missed you and am glad to see you’ and you KNOW it is true;
    quiet time;
    cute moments shared with my DH;
    special moments, like seeing a humming bird after all the rain and seeing a butterfly yesterday in the park!

  3. I’m in and my simple delight is sitting by the fire with a book while my hubby is watching the Olympics rooting for America!

  4. I live in South Mississippi and snow down in these parts is almost unheard of but this past weekend we had 5-6 inches of the white stuff and it was such a reminder that “He has washed me white as snow.” Thank you Jesus!!!

  5. I’m in! I have been so thrilled to get to know all the Proverbs 31 team through daily e-mails. My greatest pleasure since my husband and I have retired is to wake up each morning and look at my husband, smiling back at me!
