Quickie weekend giveaway!
In the early days of this here blog, I wrote a book review about a book I read and loved. It's called Preparing Him for the Other Woman by Sheri Rose Shepherd. The subtitle is A Mother's Guide to Raising Her Son to Love a Wife and Lead a Family. It's really so great. (You can read a lot more on a breakdown of the text itself on the other post). This past spring, I went to our church's women's retreat. I was a bit excited because Sheri Rose was the speaker, and I had loved this book of hers.
Off I went to the conference. At the book table, I told her how much I'd been touched and challenged in my mothering by her book. I also told her that I liked it so much that I bought an extra copy and gave one away on my blog. She lit up and said, "Oh here! Take this to give away too!" And she handed me a CD, an audio message on the same topic. Wasn't that so amazing and kind of her? She definitely has a heart for sharing her wisdom with any and all who want to hear it.
So that is what I'm doing! Giving it away.
Want to get in on it? The CD has the exact same picture as above on it and says on the cover: "What kind of husband will your son grow up to be? The time is now to prepare our boys for victory." It says that this is an audio message recoded at a Mothers of Boys Conference. On the back of the CD, it says this (let me know if you get butterflies in your stomach like I do when I read these words...):
Can you raise your son to one day love, lead, and protect a wife and family in a world like this? The answer is yes. The heartbeat of this message is to give mothers the tools to help their sons become tender warriors who will one day fight for their families; a Godly husband who faithfully loves his wife; and a leader who is a man of his word. The time is now to take your love, tears, prayers and influence and pour them into his future.
To that I say Yes, Please! If you want to be entered to win this audio message, it's just too easy. Become a follower and comment that you did (or leave a comment saying you already are one). You can get an extra entry if you leave a second comment stating one thing you appreciate about boys. That will be fun, right??
I'll make it a short drawing and will pick a winner Sunday night, June 26th, at 10 pm Pacific.
K, friends? Good luck and have a great weekend!
