A Valentine's Day Giveaway

I've been thinking about the arrival of Valentine's Day 2009 and wondering how I can celebrate this occasion with my blog readers. My husband, Phil, and I started working our way through this fabulous devotional that Phil happened by during one of his Amazon.ca hunts. We started the year-long weekly devotions the first week in January this year, but I think it would be equally appropriate to begin such a worthwhile endeavor on Valentine's Day, too.

Gary Thomas's Devotions for a Sacred Marriage is a little hard-cover book that includes a year's worth of weekly devotions for couples. Each devotion is appreciatively concisely written (one to three pages maximum) and delves into thought-provoking, God-enriching, and marriage-sanctifying topics such as: The God-Centered Spouse, Growing Old Together, The Gift of Fear, Soul Mate or Sole Mate?,..., and Oasis of Sanity to name a few of the fifty-two weeks topics presented in this devotional treasure.

If you are interested in winning a copy of this couples devotional book, please leave a comment with your e-mail address (please use spaces or brackets to discourage cyber misuse) in any of my posts from now until Feb. 14, 2009 and please include the phrase "Valentine draw" near your e-mail address so I know you're interested in the drawing.

You may enter multiple times, but only once per post. But you must include "Valentine Draw" and your augmented e-mail address in each comment you wish to use as your entry/entries, or a ballot will not be created. This may seem finicky, but I want to be certain that only people really wishing to win this awesome devotional are entered into the drawing. It's too valuable to be shelved!

I ordered two extra copies today, one for my niece whose wedding is coming up, and one for this drawing. Amazon says they are in stock, so I should receive the copies in plenty of time for the drawing.

Good luck to everyone!

Blessings,

Eileen

Sign me up!!

To answer your question about Midnight Angel, I don't have any copies right now at home, and to order them from my publisher I have to order 5 at once. It'd be cheaper for you and me both if you just bought one from Amazon. =) If you're interested, go to Amazon and in the search bar type in Midnight Angel Betsy and it'll come up. =)

Janna,

I ordered Sacred Marriage when I ordered the extra copies of the Devotional book. Received all the books on Friday, so I'll start going through the Sacred Marriage one soon. If it's half as good as the devotional, I know I'll gain much from it.

Thanks for stopping by.
