Category Giveaway

thank you

Y’all. Thank you.

Since I entered the contest with Noonday Collection and IJM last week, I have seen so much support from my friends, family and complete strangers. I have felt loved and grateful for the people in my life that are willing to help me try to win a chance to do something amazing. To even break the top 20, even for a short time, was nothing short of amazing.

Thank you.

I’ve been watching the contest and my rankings have dropped from 17th to 26th even with my best efforts to grow my voting base. The top 7 are pretty static, I haven’t seen anyone outside of the top 10 break into it. I think it’s time to throw in the towel. I am not sad about this – I know that the woman they select will be the right person and the story will be told and I am looking forward to watching it unfold.

But really, I want to communicate to all of you that have supported me – thank you. I am lucky to know that I have the support of so many wonderful people in my life. Y’all are marvelous.

Mended and a book Giveaway!

About a month ago, Anna White sent me an e-mail. She had found my little blog via my review of Shauna Niquist’s book, Bread and Wine and asked me if I would consider pre-reading her new book (Can I just say that feels awesome to be asked to read another writers work before it’s released? Because it totally does. Yay reading!). After reading her summary and watching a video, I thought I would enjoy reading Anna’s journey. Much of it sounded familiar.

mended-cover-anna-whiteMended: Thoughts on Fear, Love, and Leaps of Faith is Anna’s relatable memoir of struggling through life, wrestling with fear and doubt, finding herself broken only to experience the painful mending process, leaving her story more beautiful. This story is her gift, her offering to help others through their own circling back and relearning of life. Her short essays are full of intensity and vulnerability that draw you in and leave you feeling like you have made a new close friend. She shares her love, grief, hope and pain through parenting, marriage, friendships and pursuit of courage.

Through Anna’s stories that I often felt echoed my own, I was reminded that I am not alone in my struggle to make sense of the things that Jesus said, that life is difficult and incredibly confusing, and that doubt is not as uncommon as I had been made to believe within the church.  My friends, take comfort you are not alone. Please don’t feel like you must walk the journey by yourself.

Mended also reminded me how important honesty and vulnerability are for healthy relationships. We are all trying to make our way through this life, we are all hurt and damaged and we get only one shot. It hurts to share our true stories but it is also what makes us whole. Be brave and share what is really in your heart with those that you love.

If you are interested in winning an ebook copy of Mended, please leave a comment on this post of a favorite saying or quote that you find that you gravitate towards. I often find myself repeating ‘Wherever you are, be there‘.

Entries will be closed on Sunday, March 23rd at midnight CST and I’ll announce a winner on Monday morning.

I got to peruse her shop and pick out an item to giveaway, and let me tell you, it was difficult to pick a favorite! So many polka dots. . . oh you know how I love polka dots.

In the end I picked Robert Kaufman’s Remix – Chevron in Black and White because I really love how graphic and bold this print is, and it would look STUNNING on a brightly colored quilt.

Giveaway:: Kampala With Love

The giveaway is now closed. 

You guys, I cannot tell you how excited I am to get to give away this item. There is so much that this item represents and today is a very special day.

First of all, let me tell you an amazing story about some faithful friends and their pursuit to “love them, and love Him”. There are a couple of Bible verses that directed this story: Matthew 25:40, which says, “whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me”; and James 1:27, which calls us “to look after orphans and widows in their distress”.

Because of their practical application of these verses, my good friend Krista, her husband Jake and their son Camp (one of Jude’s closest friends) are bringing home the newest member of their family, Enock Austin Box from Uganda as you are reading this right now. The journey to bring their second son home has been a long one, filled with much waiting, longing and trusting that God would provide finances and line up all of the thousands of details just so.

Today, they were awarded legally guardianship! You can read more about their story on their blog.

Why do I bring this up? Because Noonday Collection helped them bring their sweet boy home. Noonday Collection partners with families looking to raise money for international adoptions through jewelry trunk shows. And Krista is one of their newest ambassadors.

Cool, right? But it gets even better.

The artisans that Noonday Collection purchases their collection through get paid a fair and competitive wage for the skilled work of their hands. By purchasing these beautiful items, you enable them to earn more than what they would in another job. Their family eats, their children go to school, they employ other women. . . the benefits just compound over time. You know that I get excited about things like this!

So in celebration of Enock’s new family, Krista has graciously donated a Kampala with Love necklace for a giveaway. It is near and dear to her heart because it is made in the same place the Enock was born. This necklace has layers of red paper beads that dangle from twisted African fabric. It is handmade by African Style, a group that Noonday Collection helped launch in Uganda. Headed by Jalia, the lead designer and organizer, she and her husband mentor and teach the men and women while they create exclusive pieces.

I’m pretty excited about doing a little shopping at Noonday – their items make great presents, I mean, Christmas will be here before we all know it! And I feel good about spending my money in a way that I know is improving someone’s life.

Kampala With Love

I love this necklace – it’s super light weight and is easy to wear with so many things. I’m going to enjoy wearing it around while waiting for you guys to comment and win it. You guys don’t mind, right? 🙂

Would YOU like to win this stylish necklace?

  • Please leave a comment telling me what your favorite item is on the Noonday Collection’s website.
  • A winner will be chosen using a random number generator.
  • Please only comment once – multiple entries will be deleted.
  • The giveaway will end next Friday, 10/28/11 at 10 pm.
Good luck! And while you are commenting – run over to their blog and tell them congratulations!
