God is the ULTIMATE Giver!

He expects nothing less than for us to follow His example. I challenge you to give something every day of your life. You may think you won't have anything left if you do that, but if you give as the Lord leads you to do, soon you will receive so much that you will have to figure out where to put it all.

2 CORINTHIANS 9:10 "Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness."

GOD GIVES YOU BREAD TO EAT AND SEED TO SOW. Some things that God sends your way are given as seeds for you to sow into the lives of others. Ask God to show you what He wants you to give away.

I have two different give-aways that I wanted to tell you about....

I am celebrating my 1-year anniversary of blogging this month. I have MEGAN DEMARIA'S 2 newly published books, "Searching for Spice" and "Out of Her Hands". I have read both of these books and they are awesome! Megan is a fellow blogger gone published author.

To enter this giveaway (I will give away one book each....)

Just leave me your name, blog site or email address so I can contact the winners. You can do this by leaving your information in the comment section and let me know you want to be in the drawing.

I will draw 2 winners on January 20th!

LACED WITH GRACE is also having an incredible giveaway! Tara Klena Barthel of Living the Gospel in Relationships has offered an incredible Bible Study to be given away in this awesome giveaway!

Visit to enter this giveaway!

It is always fun to enter contests and win something... I hope that even if you don't win in either one of these giveaways that you will give part of yourself away to someone this week.

Sometimes the best things we can give away are not always possessions but things that come from our heart: Love, joy, forgiveness, acceptance, humility, peace, understanding.

Hi Laurie!!

I have already entered the Laced with Grace giveaway and posted about on it, too.

I would love to enter into yours also.

As for giving away--my plans for this just came back to me last evening--a project that I have been neglecting lately.

Thanks for the reminder!!

Hey Laurie!

I missed seeing you yesterday...we were in and out. Hope you had a wonderful holiday with your family.

I love the giveaways!!! All of them sound like a prize to be treasured.

Girl, you know to throw my name in the pot for yours and January 20th is my sister's birthday...the one that God so wonderfully restored my relationship with in the past couple of week because of my mom's broken hip. She and I talked for over 2 hours last night on the phone.

Isn't God good? ALL THE TIME!!!

Love you!
