Time for a GIVEAWAY! International Friends Included!

UPDATE: 

Here are THE WINNERS of my giveaway: 


Congratulations to: Lavender Dreamer, Mamasmercantile, Mrs. R, Lindal Stoll and MarilynDKC!

I will be contacting the winners for address information... thanks to all of you who left such kind comments, that is so much appreciated!  

I will be holding another giveaway soon on my Instagram account, so if you didn't win on this round, do visit my Instagram page, where that giveaway will take place very soon :) 

Thank you again for all of your kind comments, wishes and blessings, I appreciate it very much!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Hello Dear Friends! 

I am thrilled to be able to have my hands on some extra copies of my newly published book, "Through Love's Eyes", and I want to give those copies away to you, my dear faithful readers of this blog!  

A picture of my book in front of my neighbor's barn,
which graces the front cover of the book. 

A peek inside the book.... 

Another little peek... 

Psalms 19... a favorite chapter of mine
from which I base the message found in this book :) 


I will be giving away 5 copies of my book.  To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment below.  The giveaway IS OPEN TO ALL COUNTRIES!  I know many of my readers live overseas, and I want you to be able to receive a copy should you be a winner :) And of course, the book is available on Amazon, Wal-Mart, Barnes & Nobles and any other online retailer that serves your area.  

If you have already ordered your own copy of the book, 
THANK YOU!
but... please still enter the giveaway... 
you can always give a copy away :) 

I wish I had a book to give to every one of you, my faithful readers!  You have been such a blessing, and a source of encouragement to me through my years of blogging here.  I want to thank each one of you for your kind comments through the years, and for being here today, as I see a dream of mine come to reality.  

If you would like to share this on your favorite social media platform, I would be so grateful! In these difficult times of covid, book signing events are unable to be held, and so I am depending on online methods of reaching out to the public about my book.  If you do share on your social media platform, let me know in your comment, and I will give you a DOUBLE ENTRY into the drawing :) You can also share my video found here: 


I will announce the winners of the giveaway one week from now, on Thursday, June 25th.  Tell your friends, family and anyone who may be interested to stop by and leave a comment :) 

With much love to all of you!!!
