Book Giveaway!

Do you need a new workout? I’ve got one for you. Warning: we’re not talking fitness. But, I suppose this workout did flex some spiritual muscles that were getting a bit flabby…

When I first began Becky Harling’s book, The 30 Day Praise Challenge, I expected a well-written, 20-minute-a-day parenting devotional. It turned out to be far more.

This past month, I learned how to let God turn my parenting worries and challenges into praises. Becky has a powerful lens through which she sees herself and others: praise. lensFor 30 days, I borrowed her lens by committing to praise God each day for some beautiful and not so beautiful things in my family.

sunriseI learned to praise God for my children’s struggles and celebrated how He uses these trials to draw them to Him. As I praised Him for my kids’ talents I began to see them in a new light. With fresh eyes, God showed me how they are uniquely fashioned as His masterpieces. One morning, my family picture was looking less than happy. I chose to simply praise God for the rising sun, which swelled into a wave of much needed hope to start my day.

curlAs I praised my way through 30 days, I discovered that Becky’s book is far more than a devotional. Like a curling iron that shapes a strand of lifeless hair into a soft, bouncy curl, God used this book to shape my flat and fearful, pleading prayers for my kids into praises that spring forth life and hope in our family.

If you could use a spiritual makeover for your quiet time, I highly recommend Becky’s book. Here’s where it get’s fun! There are 2 steps to be entered in a giveaway to win a copy of Becky’s book.

  1. I’ve followed your journey on FB and have enjoyed seeing it. You are such a woman of prayer and devotion so I know if you found greatness in this book, many others will too.

    • I think many will be make praise a habit and be blessed by it! But ultimately, my hope is that it blesses our amazing God who is worthy of our praises 365 days a year!!

  2. Your facebook posts have convinced me to start the book. I’m on day 2. No need to enter me for the drawing but appreciate the review and new blog. Signed up for email updates and will enjoy reading more of your terrific writing!

    • I hope you enjoy the book, Kim. It definitely helped remind me to praise when I’m tempted to get stuck in a prayer rut. It’s amazing what praise does to our intimacy with Christ and our perspective on life. Let me know how you like the book and thanks for stopping by.
