book winner and another give-away

Marcie is the winner of A Mother's Book of Secrets!

Shawni,
Your blog inspires me everyday...
I can't imagine how much your
book will do for me!
Thanks for the offer...
Keep up the great inspiration ;)


And no, I didn't choose this person because she wrote such a nice note (although I sure do appreciate that)...I was actually proud of myself because I figured out how the heck to choose the winner from random.org. Congratulations, Marcie! Send me your address (sepphotography at gmail dot com) and I'll send your book right away.

Thanks so much for the great response from everyone else too...I wish I could just send out a whole slew of books, but remember you can get yourself a copy just a few clicks away here.

Kristy of SoSoBella Designs has generously offered to give away one of her beautiful initial necklaces (like the one she made for Lucy) in honor of Mother's Day.
The lucky winner will be able to request the initial and the color of little gem to add.

So go ahead and enter to win and I'll announce the winner tomorrow.

I have never been a give-away kind of girl, but this is kinda fun!

Love, Shawni

    It's funny because I read "Teaching Children Joy" three times after I discovered it in college for a marriage and family class (my minor). That was long before I had children, mind you.

    It is so great to read another great Eyre book and have the next generation in there too!
