Words have power. Written words provide proof. You can read them, and reread them whenever you want. They can speak life to someone who needs encouragement. They can speak death to someone who is being deceived. The choice lies within you. How is it that you want people to remember you? Encourager...that is the gift that God has laid on my heart. To use my written, spoken, and/or sung words to lift people up. To be one link in their road to healing, restoration, joy. I have been without those things, and I claim them to be mine again. If you want me to seek God on a prayer for a specific situation...that is why I am here. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to pray God's Word of Life over you.

Okay...so I said I was going to do this. And I really have no idea what I am doing...but these are some things I have noticed while looking at other blogs.

Give-a-way time! I bought two awesome devotionals, not really knowing for sure what I was going to do with them. One of them I already gave away because it is so dear to my heart. It helped me through a very huge God-growing, depressed time in my life. And God put someone right smack infront of me that was dealing with some similar feelings. I had no choice. I also bought another one with plans of doing myself. I trust that God knows exactly what He is doing though. So I am going to put that one up for give-a-way as well.

These are my two Max Lucado Devotional giveaways. I also plan to add a few fun things that will make you want to sit down and meet with God! =)

-Become a follower, and you have entry in the contest. Because I am so new to this, I will count all of you that have already supported me. But I welcome any newcomers to join my prayer list. If you have been a blog stalker...but not a follower...this is your chance. =)

-Add a comment to one of my posts. (Again, for this contest, I will go retro. Haha! I will add an entry in your name from each comment already posted.) This is one of the most encouraging things for me. Feedback. I love to hear when God uses this for His glory. So comment away!!

-Tell a friend. If you tell a friend, and they become a follower you get two more entries. Leave a comment so you get the credit.

I will run the contest for two weeks. And will announce the winner on the 18th of March. Oh I just realized...it is March! Time for Shamrock shakes at McDonald's. Trust me...they are delish!


  1. YAY! A give away. Really good idea and I love Max's books. :) I'm always looking for a good devotional and having a hard time finding one. Maybe in the future, you could give you own person review of some!?

  2. Thanks Jacki! I have only done one of those devotionals pictured above...but I have done many of these by Max. I just love the way he writes...and the questions that he asks to get me journaling. If you want some info on where to get them...let me know! Or maybe wait until you see if you win one. =)
