Quips and Quotes
"We do not earn or merit anything by taking refuge in God. Hiding in something makes no contribution to the hiding place. All it does is show that we regard ourselves as helpless and the hiding place as a place of rescue." John Piper

Book Give Away - Just Leave a Comment to Participate

I will be giving away this book, By Design...God's Distinctive Calling for Women, for a comment****. From now until June 12th, leave a comment and some way for me to contact you should you win - your email or blog link, etc. is fine. You will be entered and may even win**.

Here is a review that explains what this book is all about:

God did not make a mistake when He made men and women different. He had a distinctive plan and purpose for each. This book is a joyous celebration of that profound fact and an appeal to the church to utilize one of its most valuable resources: its women.

By Design is not about answering feminist arguments or exegeting Biblical passages on traditional roles, submission or headship. Instead, it is an uplifting and practical introduction to God's wonderful design for women. It is also a challenge to women everywhere to explore the significance of your distinctives and return to your Biblical calling. And it is a plea for the church to equip and mobilize you to help a hurting world and capture a culture for Christ through ministries of mercy and compassion.

Like Susan Hunt's previous works, Spiritual Mothering and The True Woman, this book is a strong affirmation of your value as a woman and a great resource for anyone involved in women's ministries.
So now that you know what the book is about, if you would like to enter the give-away, here are the rules:

1) Leave a comment* here and provide some way for me to contact you if you win*** - an email or blog link is fine, as long as there's an email address attached to the blog link.

2) Get an additional entry for blogging about this contest by putting it on your website, blog, facebook, twitter, or any other networking site you have. Then make sure you let me know by email (sharon-sharealike@pacbell.net) where you've posted it.

Note: You do not have to leave a comment to win. Winning isn't based on what you say. One winner will be drawn randomly...so, it's fine to simply leave your name and email.

* No duplicate comments please.

** Winners will be selected by random, impartial draw, and will notified by e-mail.

*** You will have 48 hours to get back to me, otherwise a new winner will be selected.

****Comments will be open through June 12th, 2009 and I will announce the winner on this blog on Monday, June 15th, 2009.

Oh how exciting! I know just the person to give this book to if I win. She just started running a women's ministry from our church. This book would be perfect. I also added a blurb about the contest on my web site. Good luck to everyone!!

Racine Lucille, love your site dear sister! I am so very proud to name you among my dearest and most treasured friends. No bribe intended...this is straight from my heart.

Going right now to post this website on the NutriSystem Discussion Board (Christian Support Group), also sending it to family and friends in state and out...happy to share it whether or not my name is drawn. I am getting ready to begin a bible study with a dear friend of the past and this may be a great book to start with...thanks for the blurb about the book.
