Finally I Give the Book Away!

The day has come. Check out my book!

Finally.

The chance to win the book! Lisa even autographed it for you. And I even autographed my quote for you. Kidding. I'm only kidding. I totally didn't sign it...although I may have smiley faced it.

I really do love this book. I know I've told you that already. There's just a few more things I want to share about it before you enter to win.

  • I cried in chapter one (p. 26) I love their story, and their call to ministry, because it has God's handwriting all over it. You see Him do the seemingly impossible, and can't help but say to yourself, Yep God, only You...
  • I did the most underlining in Chapter 2, which bears the same title as the book. In particular, she speaks of being winsome. And frankly, it's something all women need to hear. Couple quotes:
  • People are much more likely to overlook faults when mutual love undergirds the relationship. And, in order for people to love you, you need to present yourself as lovable. (p. 53)
Girls, people need to like being around you! (p. 52)

Amen.

Good stuff. Practical, useful stuff. Hurts so good kind of stuff.

Alright. I'll let you enter now. Just leave me a comment to get yourself entered. I tried to think of something clever to have you comment about, but apparently I haven't had enough coffee yet...

I'll randomly pick a winner on Wednesday.

If you're not a blogger, please leave me an email address so I can reach you if you win!

  2. I REALLY want this book!! Can't you just close the giveaway & give it to me? I won't tell anybody.

    On second thought, with that kind of cheatin' heart I probably shouldn't be reading anything but the Word!

    But I still REALLY want this book!!

  7. I love what God is teaching you through this book. Even though Bill is not currently in an official position, I still consider myself a "Pastor's Wife" & would love to win the book! If I don't win, I will still probably get the book to read!
    I also nominate Heth and Sharon B. so if you want to throw their names in the hat, they deserve it!!

  27. Hey,
    This book sounds great! My husband is in the process of raising support to do ministry full time at our church. I'm excited about it, but pretty nervous too, I've never EVER thought of myself as a pastor's wife or anyone to model after. This has been something I've been thinking a lot about. Thanks for sharing this book, even if I don't win, I'll be picking this one up. :)

  33. I would so love to win a copy of this book because I'm a PW wearing tacky open toed sandals with nude panty hose and I need to know how to be a PW that wears cute shoes. I'm kidding, I know this book isn't a guide to cute shoes and I really don't wear pantyhose with sandals...sorry, I know it was vain of me to add that but I just had to. Seriously, I'm excited about this book getting into the hands of many PW's including myself because the Lord knows I need all the help I can get!

  34. First time leaving a comment here, but I've been reading your blog for about the past year. I know. Lame-o. But whatever:)

    I'm a new lead/sr. pastor's wife. My husband just got called on as the lead guy in August, when we also had our first baby. Big transitions. I mean big.

    Anyways. Love your blog. Have been meaning to say hi for a while, just haven't gotten up the nerve... (not sure if it's nerves, just not sure what it is).

    I'd love to read this book. I love fashion and sometimes have a hard time maintaining the balance between clothes and ministry:) Oy.

    Thanks, Sarah. I've appreciated learning your heart through this blog.

  35. I would love to give this to my pastor's wife--she is a sweetheart through and through, but she is hurt by others fairly often. Maybe this will help her understand others a bit more, even when they are beging unbelievably unlovable!

  36. YAY for terrific giveaways! SOooo excited!

  37. I actually know Lisa from back when my mom (a fellow Preacher's Wife) and her worked together. She was always full of smiles and life. I can't wait to read her book!

  38. I would LOVE to win this! My husband is in his third year of being a youth pastor so we are still learning the "art" of ministry and what comes with the titles of pastor and pastor's wife. Thanks for blogging about this!

  39. I have 3 boys too! And live very close to the church where my husband works :) And it takes lots of coffe to get me thinking also. I've been wanting to read this book then pass it on to fellow ministry wives! Thanks for the chance to win.

    Yes, this pastor's wife would love this book! Especially since I had said the title, "Yes, you can still wear cute shoes," to my sister-in-law a year ago as she was about to become a pastor's wife! Honestly, I laughed when I read Lisa's title. :)

  61. So, I bought the book, but I would love to have an autographed one..and I could give mine away to a pastor's wife friend? But then that would be totally selfish and un pastor's wife-ish of me. Right?
