Book Giveaway

There are books of all shapes and sizes out there. Good light reading, love stories (not to be confused with romance), intellectual, political, spiritual, uplifting, and many, many more.

But there are very few life changing books. Rare is the book that, once you read it, you are a new person; no longer content with the way you had been living your life up to that point.  There few books that light a fire in you that, unlike most fires, does not dim with time, but it is kindled.  It’s an inferno.

Stand for the Family is that book for me.  I have written about it before.

Now just so that you are aware, I am not one of those people who gets free things in the mail to review or giveaway.  I have no problem with that, I just am not on the list that companies send things to.  So any comments or reviews I give on my blog are for things that I have bought with my own money or that have been given to me from close friends or family.  OK, now with that out of the way…

I am giving away TWO copies of Stand for the Family to my readers.

The Rules:

  • All you have to do is leave a comment telling me a life changing book that you have had in your life.  And if you haven’t had a life changing book, then tell me your all time favorite book.
  • While the book can be religious in nature, Scriptures are not allowed, they are life changing, but I already know about them :)
  • You can get one extra entry by becoming a follower (so that you can get other updates and stuff)  So leave another comment saying that you have done that.
  • And another entry by linking to this giveaway on your blog (and leave a link in the comments for it)

The giveaway is closed to new entries on Thursday at midnight and I will announce the winners on Friday.

Or you could to Stand for the Family to order yourself.  Discounts for bulk orders of five our more (Christmas presents)!  All proceeds go to Family Watch International to help protect The Family.

    I’ve read a lot of life-changing books, including the Scriptures, but since you already know about them, I’ll tell you about ‘Inconceivable: Finding Peace in the Midst of Infertility’ by Shannon Woodward.
    It was amazing. It felt like Heavenly Father was using Mrs. Woodward’s book to reach out to me and offer me a great big hug, and tell me exactly HOW to reconcile my righteous desire for more children with the fact that righteous desire will not likely be fulfilled in this lifetime. Many, many tissues were used in the reading of this book. In fact, I’m tearing up now, remembering the feelings and thoughts I had whilst reading.
    I know this is not likely a book that you will be interested in, but it changed my life profoundly!
    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

    Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites, by Chris Heimerdinger. I hadn’t ever really grasped that the scriptures contained people that actually lived, that the stories might actually be pretty interesting (outside of having to read them) until I read that book. I was about 11 or 12, I think, and it forever changed me. The whole series is pretty good, though it’s taking him FOREVER to finish!!!!

    Just wanted to share my books:

    life changing would be The Total Money Makeover

    favorite is The Little Prince. but only Katherine Woods’ translation. It helps me remember how children see things. And is especially sweet after reading The Tale of the Rose.

    I have 2 life changing books….for different reasons.

    Gone Too Soon-The Life and Loss of Infants and unborn Children by Sherri Devashrayee Wittwer. We have had quite a few miscarriages and every time I read this book. I found something new every time.

    21 Days Closer to Christ by Emily Freeman. I went to Time Out for Women and bought this book. It is amazing! I’m going to read it again starting December 1st!

    My latest life changing book is, “There is a Cure for Diabetes”. Diabetes has been an ongoing concern in my birth family as well as with My family. The author, Dr. Cousens, has a program that will eliminate diabetes. We are seeing incredible changes happening by following his counsel.

    Life Changers for me: Tear Soup, The Alchemist (the Paolo Coehlo one), The Hiding Place, In The Eye Of The Storm, Jesus The Christ, Happiest Baby on the Block, A Lantern In Her Hand, These Is My Words, Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, If Life Were Hard it Wouldn’t Be Easy, Twilight :) Sorry, had to throw that one in there. It actually WAS life changing because it got me back into reading after years of hiatus and it introduced me to juvenile literature, which I now love.

    Who couldn’t use another book? (especially when it’s one that a friend of mine keeps bugging me to read!) Alright, I have a few, maybe they’ll count for multiple entries?? ;-). The Hiding Place, Screwtape Letters, Tuesday’s with Morrie, Parenting: a House United, Homeschooling with a meek and quiet spirit, and Leadership and Self deception. Oh! Dare I forget the book that permanently set us on our path of Homeschooling, A Thomas Jefferson Education for the 21st century…. I guess in a lot of ways that has to top my life changing books. While we didn’t come away with anything new per say, it did put our thoughts on education into words and solidified what we wanted for our children. So, since my kids are home all day everyday instead of giving me quiet time everyday like I thought would happen when my kids got to be school aged, I’d say that qualifies as life changing!

    I would have to say one book that forever changed my life and the life of my family is The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding. I always knew that I wanted to breastfeed my children, but I had no idea how powerful it would be in our lives!!!
