When I started this humble blog over a year and a half ago, I had no idea of the tremendous blessings that would come from it.
It began as a way to record our adoption process and from there it served as a hub that brought about new friendships and connections for me. It's allowed me to release and laugh and learn and grow.
Amongst the oodles of posts (most of which can be found BEFORE September of 2009....although I'm getting back into the groove now that I'm a *bit* more adjusted to being a new mama!) you can find anything from my thoughts on being an almost-Preacher's Wife to my love for cute flats to thoughts on adoption to joys and struggles that I face.
In His Hands just recently passed 100,000 hits...which proves to me that it's not only my mom reading my blog every week. ;-) So as promised, this milestone calls for a special little giveaway.
Have you heard of Blurb???
If you haven't, you need to hightail it over to the site right this instant. Or whenever you get the chance. Or I'll just explain it to y'all...
Blurb is a fantastic company that allows you to use your own words and photos to create/author/design your very own book. Sweet, huh? And the possibilites are endless! My "wish list" of Blurb books include: our trip to Korea, Josiah's 1st year home with us, our wedding, etc. The site is very user friendly and the books are a snap to create. Oh, and you can also "slurp" your blog into a book!!
If you're anything like me, you'll want to include lots and lots of photos in your book.
Ones like this one of my little man all bundled up for sledding in the Frozen Tundra...
We all know the saying "a picture is worth a thousand words"....so a WHOLE book filled with photos must be worth about 100,000 words, right?! (Or maybe I just came up with title that on a whim since the reason behind the giveaway is 'cause my blog got over 100,000 hits.) Anyway...
A $20 gift card to Blurb is up for grabs, my lovely friends. (Book prices range from $12.95 to $59.95)
To enter to win, simply leave a comment on this post. And to avoid a slew of comments all saying "Pick me, pick me" (although I would totally say that, too!), feel free to ask any pressing questions you may have for me that I can answer in a later post. Or I suppose "Oooh, mememe!" is fine, too! If you'd like an extra entry in the drawing, go ahead and mention this giveaway on your blog and then come back to comment and let me know you did!
I'll randomly choose the gift card winner sometime on Tuesday, February 2!
Thank you for helping to make this whole blogging thing a ton of fun. I'm blessed to call so many of you friends....and I pray you'll stick around as I continue "to chat about growing our family, daily happenings, and life on the road to the ministry".
