My 1st Blog Giveaway!!!

In honor of my 100th Post celebration and my last blog series, I will be giving away 3 brand new books that will help in enriching someone's quiet time. The 3 books are all good spiritual nuggets to going deeper in truth and growing deeper in love with Jesus. Here they are...

1) The Loveliness Of Christ by Samuel Rutherford - Not only is the red, leather cover pretty :-) and small enough to put in a purse or pocket, it has short excerpts full of great wisdom and life-changing truth.
2) 31 Days Toward Intimacy with God by Joni Eareckson Tada -If you want help in "knowing God intimately, trusting Him faithfully, and depending on Him consistently," this is the book for you.

3) The Valley of Vision - A Collection of Puritan Prayers & Devotions edited by Arthur Bennett - The prayers and devotions in this book will help satisfy your spiritual hunger and leave you desiring more of Christ. Here's a quote from the prayer titled, "The Saviour" - "May I enter him as my refuge, build on him as my foundation, walk in him as my way, follow him as my guide, conform to him as my example, receive his instructions as my prophet, rely on his intercession as my high priest, obey him as my king."

To enter the Defining Moments 100th Post Giveaway, just leave a comment & your name. I'll draw 3 winners on next Tues, Jan 13. The 1st winner will get to pick whichever book they want. The 2nd winner gets to pick from the 2 remaining books. The 3rd winner gets whichever book is left. If you happen to win a book that you already have, give it to someone who you think would be blessed by it.

For those of you who never comment or don't have a goggle account, you can email me at caryn.turner@yahoo.com.

***Tell all your friends who may be interested. Anyone is welcome to enter the giveaway. I'll announce the winners in 1 week!

Happy Winning!

Hi Caryn!
Would you believe that 2 of those books were on my "to buy list" for Christmas? Unfortunately, our local Christian bookstore (there's only one in the whole city!) doesn't stock books that aren't on the bestseller list...So, I would love to be entered in the giveaway.
I am so glad you began to blog. God is using you sister!

Count me in, Caryn! I'm still trying to adjust to having a little one at home demanding my attention so I have to admit my quiet times have suffered lately. A jump start would be very welcomed.
