Here's a different kind of contest for readers of Christian books…win by giving thanks/praise. And the more praise and thanks you give, the better your chances to win a pack of 20 AUTOGRAPHED BOOKS!!
Author Lisa T. Bergren (Waterfall, Remnants) has invited me and other authors to share what we are thankful for this year. And she's giving away copies of our books. Two winners will receive a signed set of the books below.
That's 20 autographed books!
I'll share what I'm thankful for below, but visit Lisa Bergren's website to read what all these authors have to give thanks for this November, and for details on how to enter this drawing.
Here's what I'm thankful for this year.
1. I’m profoundly, joyously thankful that my sins are washed away by the blood of the Lamb, Christ Jesus. Without that, the greatest earthly blessings would be hollow. With that, the toughest trials are put into their proper perspective—a light affliction not to be compared with the eternal joy and wholeness that awaits the child of God.
2. I’m thankful God grants us the desires of our hearts. In my case, the opportunity to share my stories, and His grace, with readers. For nearly twenty years I prayed a specific prayer regarding this. “Lord, if You don’t desire my stories to be published, then change the desire of my heart. Make me to desire what You see is best for me.” I’m thankful He maintained that passion for storytelling in my heart through nearly two decades of waiting, and writing.
3. I’m thankful for my godly husband, Brian. During those twenty years I was writing and waiting—and not earning a penny—he was steadfastly providing for us, allowing me the time I needed to hone the craft of writing, and find my place in the publishing world. He did this all in faith, never knowing if the day would come that God might open one of those doors I kept knocking on. Without his support, I’d have given up long ago.
I'll close comments here, and see you over at Lisa's!
