For those that might not know...I'm pregnant. This means that after 20 weeks of morning sickness, I really haven't been sewing very much. Now that the nauseau has subsided, my energy level with my four little boys and this little girl in-utero really isn't allowing me to stay up late at night to make a new creation for you to ooh and aah over.
This brings me to my giveaway!
I just recently attended Together for the Gospel in Louisville, KY. If you know anything about this conference....you get books...lots and lots of BOOKS!
In the spirit of T4G...I am going to giveaway some BOOKS!!!
Book Giveaway #1:
Treasuring God in Our Traditions
Only God can bequeath God to our children. But he uses means. He uses God-centered traditions and Bible-saturated family patterns and grace-laden heirlooms.
Only God can give our children a taste for the sweetness of God. Only God can awaken them to his worth. But year in and year out there are traditions that show them: God is our Treasure.
After more than 30 years of marriage and childrearing, Noël Piper opens her home to you. She invites you into the happy, imperfect Piper pattern of life. Come with her and enjoy the way she helps us treasure God in our traditions.
Book Giveaway #2:
The Roots of Endurance by John Piper
Invincible Perseverance in the Lives of John Newton, Charles Simeon, and William Wilberforce
The Swans are Not Silent: Book Three
Bitterness and frustration tempt everyone who endures opposition or slander or rejection. It's hard not to give in. And if adversity continues for a long time (even decades) is there hope for perseverance? Will we find the grace to finish the race?
In this third volume of The Swans Are Not Silent series, John Piper examines the lives of John Newton, Charles Simeon, and William Wilberforce. These three extraordinary men are examples of deep and joyful maturity in the face of life-long opposition. They were sinners like us. But they refused to yield to bitterness. With the centrality of the cross as the root of their endurance, they grew downward in humility and upward in adoration for Christ. Their God-centered, Christ-exalting, cross-focused perseverance inspire us to press on through hardship and finish the race set before us.
Book Giveaway #3:
The Mortification of Sin by John Owen
Here is what a reader says about it:
I usually give a book a month or more to ruminate so I can weigh the value of its contents against all that I have learned from scripture, but in this one case I'm breaking that rule. I swear John Owen just drove the sword of the Spirit into the very midst of my still-beating heart like a surgeon's scalpel. This book is life-changing. It is biblical, powerful, relevant and Spirit-filled. Owen has made all the questions which lingered in my mind with regard to sanctification and the means by which we are to pursue holiness by the power of the Holy Spirit suddenly coalesce into a coherent, scriptural, practical, spiritual whole. In 130 pages (Puritan Paperback edition) he did this! And how foolish I feel for not having seen it all before when it is so clear and simple and plainly biblical!
