That's right! It's time for the quarterly Bloggy Giveaway Carnival! Be sure to sign up for some great giveaways :) There's bound to be lots of great stuff!
I haven't participated in the past few carnivals because life has been so busy. By the time I realized there was one going on, it was already mid-week and too late to give something away. Five kids under the age of seven will do that to a person!
Not this time!
My love of crocheting and my love of books will be combined into what each winner will receive!
There will be TWO winners...yes TWO! Each winner will receive a book and a pair of booties!
The booties have yet to be made since it's up to you whether they are for a boy or a girl...and I also need to know the age of the child you are wanting them for (up to a year old)!
Here is a picture of booties I made for my little girl....
The pair you receive will be similar to this, but different colors of course!
The books up for grabs are:
Here is a brief synopsis:
Are you prepared to address the most challenging cultural issues of your time?
Mass media and technology are exploding. Popular entertainment relentlessly pushes the envelope. Biomedicine stretches ethical boundaries. Political issues shift with the polls.
The world in which you live is in the midst of a major cultural transformation–one leading to a widespread lack of faith, an increase in moral relativism, and a rejection of absolute truth. How are we to remain faithful followers of Christ as we live in this ever-shifting culture? How should we think about–and respond to–the crucial moral questions of our day? How can we stand up for the truth?
In Culture Shift, Dr. R. Albert Mohler–one of today’s leading Christian thinkers and spokespersons–addresses these tough topics clearly, biblically and passionately:
•Christian faith and politics
•The Supreme Court and religion
•The truth about terrorism
•Christian parents and public schools
•The abortion debate
•Christian response to global tragedies
•And many more
Here is trustworthy help for developing a comprehensive Christian worldview. It’s timely information powerfully connected to timeless truth that will equip you to stand strong and speak out.
The second book to be given away is:
A brief synopsis:
What does Jesus mean when he says, “Follow me”?
The first edition of The Gospel According to Jesus won wide acclaim in confronting the “easy-believism” that has characterized some aspects of evangelical Christianity. Over the past 50 years, a handful of books have become true classics, revered world-wide for their crystal-clear presentation of the Gospel and lauded for their contribution to the Christian faith. These extraordinary books are read, re-read, and discussed in churches, Bible study groups, and homes everywhere. John MacArthur’s The Gospel According to Jesus is one of those books. In The Gospel According to Jesus, MacArthur tackles the idea of “easy believism,” challenging Christians to re-evaluate their commitment to Christ by examining their fruits. MacArthur asks, “What does it really mean to be saved?” He urges readers to understand that their conversion was more than a mere point in time, that, by definition, it includes a lifetime of obediently walking with Jesus as Lord. This 20th anniversary edition of MacArthur’s provocative, Scripture-based book contains one new chapterand is further revised to provide Christians in the 21st century a fresh perspective on the intrinsic relationship between faith and works, clearly revealing Why Jesus is both Savior and Lord to all who believe.
