Giveaway for Mother’s Day (CLOSED)

In case the plethora of advertisements hasn’t hit you yet…2 weeks from Sunday is Mother’s Day.

The stores would have you believe that Mom will not be happy without a card, chocolate, jewelry, clothes, and of course…eating out. Oh wait. I forgot to list flowers. Better throw that in there for good measure.

In reality, a lot of Moms would probably just want to be told they are a good Mom and that what they have done/are doing matters. (Have you seen that Hallmark “Tell me” commercial? I think it’s pretty cool.)

In honor of Mother’s Day, I contacted the publisher for one of my favorite books, Feminine Appeal by Carolyn Mahaney.

This book is not only for mothers. It is written primarily for women, so if you’re a guy, you might want to just pass it on to your mom/wife/girlfriend/lady-on-the-street.

Each chapter is devoted to a virtue found in Titus 2:

  1. The delight of loving my husband
  2. The blessings of loving my children
  3. The safety of self-control
  4. The pleasure of purity
  5. The honor of working at home
  6. The rewards of kindness
  7. The beauty of submission

Ideally, every young lady would have an older woman teaching her the truths of Titus 2. But since we do not live in an ideal world, I’m thankful for books like Feminine Appeal.

In honor of Mother’s Day, one of you will win your very own copy of Feminine Appeal. All you have to do is comment below.

    What an amazing book. It would be awesome to read and even better to give! Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

  2. aggh…thanks for the 2 week reminder – can’t believe it is that close already. I have got some work to do for Mother’s Day gifts/cards and have to get my menu and house ready to host.

    sounds like a good book…and if you don’t have to be a mother to enjoy it, count me in.

    The word I would use to describe my mom would definitely be Loving. That about sums up everything else which would be: tender, compassionate, kind, and she lives out the fruits of the spirit everyday of her life. She is a wonderful role model.

    I ‘like’ you on Facebook. 🙂
    My Mom defines the word strength.
    I live in Japan, but have a U.S. address (thanks to the military)…does my entry still count?? 🙂
    Pineapple in Japan is heavenly…you should come visit!
