CLOSED - Busy Day and today's giveaway!

Hello everyone!

Sorry for being so late today but my son was sick and ended up staying home from school!  I felt so bad for him!  Anyway, I had to work from here and run him to the dr. and then pick up his meds and then pick up my daughter and her friend that I watch and then we had the school district strategic meeting and... well you get the picture!  Time just got away from me!

If I can ask, please say a prayer of healing (sinus infection) for my baby boy!  Here's a picture so you know who you are praying for:


Handsome isn't he???  Speaking of my baby boy, he's a teen now, and as a Christian parent, I know he's going to face a lot of challenges over his lifetime. He's going to make some HARD choices some right, some not so much.  But even more importantly,  there is an opportunity to do the RIGHT thing, even when it's hard.

This year, I had the chance to review the book Start Here: Doing Hard Things, Right Where You Are by Alex & Brett Harris.  It's a very quick read (in other words short!).  This book gave solid examples of teens who took a stand and did what they knew was right, what needed to be done.  In fact, Alex and Brett were only 18 when they wrote the book!  I was FLOORED by some of the accomplishments of the teens in this book.

In the near future, I plan to read this with my son and my daughter!  I believe that the teens in this book are inspiring and it will help them realize that they can do just about anything they set their mind to.

I'm so happy to be able to offer one of you a copy of this book to share with your teen.  Just leave a comment below and I will do a drawing on 10/11!  Make sure to leave your email!

Just some quick rules:

You must be a U.S. resident
You must be 18
You must be a follower of this blog

Thanks so much for your participation in my giveaways!!

Disclosure:  This book was provided for my review by Waterbrook-Multnomah and I received an extra copy to give away.  The opinions expressed are mine alone!

Love and Blessings!
