Hello blog world friends!
I thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas break. All of our kids were home for a full week! We played games, enjoyed meals, played Kinect (oh my! So much fun!) and spent way too many days in our jammies. It was perfect!
I also went close to a week without TOUCHING my computer! It was weird, but very freeing. I love blogging and catching up on Facebook and Twitter, but anytime something has the propensity to become an idol in our life…it’s good to take a break from it. I don’t think I was at idol status on the computer, but certainly could be if I don’t step away every once in a while.
Today I want to share with you three exciting things:
1) Tomorrow night (Saturday, January 8) there is a great family movie on FOX TV. It’s called “Change of Plans.” I’m particularly excited about this movie because first, I love anything that my family can watch together and second, because it deals with adoption which is something I’m very passionate about.
I know so many of you love contests and they are running two contests along with this movie that you might want to check into:
Contest #1: Watch the movie trailer and then enter a giveaway for a 55″ HD TV. You can do that HERE!
Contest #2: Essay contest for moms: 300 words on “What has been your most life changing experience and what has it taught you. The winner of the essay contest could win $500 and Hearts at Home could win $1000 (make sure and put Hearts at Home as your sponsoring organization). You can find details on that contest HERE!
2) I’m excited about a new book that a friend of mine wrote. Lysa Terkeurst has a new book out called Made To Crave. It’s a book that addresses our need to crave God more than food. She’s offering a free six-week webcast on the subject to launch the new year.
I’m planning on doing the webcast along with the book. Want to join me? Find more information HERE.
3) I’m launching my new blog site this weekend! During the past month, my daughter Anne and I have been doing a website/blog makeover! We’re moving my blog from Blogger to WordPress and it will offer free downloads, will have a fresh look, and will be easier to navigate!
Nothing should change for you if you receive my blog by email…but you’ll definitely want to hop on over to the new site when it goes live because there will be new resources for you. I’ll let you know as soon as you can explore it!
Well there you go! So many fun things happening in the next few days!
Have a great weekend!
