I have absolutely loved reading all you comments on yesterday’s post! It is so fun for me to be able to give back to all of you who so faithfully read, comment, link up, and jump through hoops to restart your browser/computer/internet just to be able to see my site!
Before I jump into today’s giveaways I wanted to invite you – if you haven’t already – to sign up to subscribe to this site by email. I’ve moved everything over to a snazzy Mail Chimp set up, and once you’ve subscribed & confirmed your email address, you’ll get a lovely little note with a link to download my free “Behind the Scenes” eBook 🙂
On to the giveaways!
One very lucky winner of today’s giveaway will win a lovely set to get you ready for the holidays:
A copy of Amanda White’s fabulous Christmas Advent eBook “Truth in the Tinsel,” a copy of “Why Do We Call it Christmas?” from What’s in the Bible, and a copy of “Begin,” the first in the Growly series from Erin & Phil Ulrich.
About Truth in the Tinsel: (affiliate links used) This ebook will lead you and your children on your own experience through the Christmas Story. You’ll take a few minutes each day in reading the Christmas Story directly from the Bible, making a fun ornament craft and talking about it together. Though intended, quite wisely by my faux-hawk rocking friend Amanda, to be done with your kiddos, I have to admit that I did some of the crafts on my own and had so much fun. When my little one is older we will definitely be doing this as part of our Christmas tradition! Amanda inspires me daily 🙂
BONUS: Just for you, my lovely readers, you can get 20% off Truth in the Tinsel when you visit Amanda’s site & use code CRYSTALSTINE!
And when Madison is old enough for chapter books, do you want to know which series I’m going to start with? While you might guess The Babysitters Club (side note: I totally wanted to be Claudia. Minus the diabetes thing.) it’s actually the Growly books. I read the first in the series, “Begin,” as soon as it came out and was thrilled to see that the second installment, “Widewater,” has just been released! The books are written by Phil & Erin, incredibly creative, talented, and kind friends I’m blessed to have met in real life. Here’s more from the Growly Book site: For centuries the bears of Haven have lived quiet lives, high in the mountains at the edge of the great Precipice. That all changes for a young cub named Growly when he receives a mysterious message. With just his backpack and glider, Growly sets out on a desperate journey to find his grandfather’s long lost friend . . . and to find a way back home.
Have you heard of What’s in the Bible? If you are a Veggie Tales fan, you will love these videos by Veggie Tales creator Phil Vischer. In his first new project since VeggieTales, Vischer has set out to teach kids (and parents!) the story of the Bible – God’s great rescue plan! We know the stories of Moses, Noah, David, and Jesus, but in this groundbreaking new Bible DVD series, we learn how they all fit together to tell one big, redemptive story.
