My Valentine's Gift To You // book giveaway

Sunday, February 14, 2016




    "Roses are red, violets are blue, books are the best gifts for me & for you..."


    Hello, lovely people! Today, as you most likely know, is Single Awareness Day Valentine's Day... As I haven't a sweetheart to dote on today, I thought 'why not dote on my precious followers?' And what better way to do that than to give you books?? So, in order to tell you how much I ardently admire and love you, I thought I'd give away a very special book that I had the honor of contributing to!



   Beauty, Boys, and Ball Gowns is a collaborative book by the Crown of Beauty Magazine team, full of personal stories & heartfelt articles on relationships, true beauty, and changing the world. Many godly women banded together to make this book happen, & I am so blessed to have been a part of this project! In my section, I ended up sharing about my time living abroad as a missionary in Kenya, (which was a completely life-changing experience for me) and it is my first piece of writing that has been published in print! And the best part about this book is when you purchase a copy, $5 out of the money you spend goes to help our ministry fund an orphanage for girls in India!!

   So, as you can see, I have a bit of a personal connection with this book. So many things I am passionate about (orphans, missions, & world-changing) are addressed in its pages, and I am super-thrilled to be able to share some of that passion with you all! 

   But before my international readers feel disappointed, I am going to do a happy dance & announce that this giveaway IS INTERNATIONAL!! *squeeeeee*  My editor said that she is cool with us footing the extra for shipping, because we love reaching out to our international readers! The more the merrier. (Plus, I love my international followers! You guys rock!!) So, in short, if Amazon can ship it to you, we can send it.

   Alright, lovelies, let the games begin... The giveaway starts today, the 14th of February, and ends on the 21st. Enter in the Rafflecopter-thingy below & be sure to share with your friends! And, if you feel that you cannot possibly wait to simply win the book, you can buy it here. (Remember, $5 per book goes to build an orphanage in India! So, it's a win-win.)

   Good luck, guys! Are you excited about the giveaway? What are your plans for Valentine's Day? Are you going to consume copious amounts of chocolate? Lemme know in the comments! And may the odds be ever in your favor...

  1. You lived aboard in Kenya no less, how fascinating. I went on a short term mission trip to Kenya, it's beautiful.

  2. I think we should daintily change the name to Single Awareness Day. Shall I start a petition?

    But seriously, it's so cool that you got to go to Kenya and had the opportunity to write about it. I would love to do missing work for half a year or even more some day. Definitely entering and sharing.

    1. Hello, Katherine! :) Haha! YES!! I always send out "Happy Single Awareness Day!" text-messages to all of my friends... At least we can all be single & sassy together, right? lol! :)

      It was a wonderful opportunity. Girl, you should totally go for it!! Mission work has a way of changing you for the better. (Plus, you make awesome memories!) Thank you for taking part! <3

  3. Okay, second comment because I's supposed to say what I like to do for Valentines Day. *clears throat* I like chocolate. I mean, really, really like it. Chocolate is my Valentine. So on Valentines Day I eat chocolate.

  4. Yay!! I'm so excited! :)

    Valentines Day isn't really something I'm into?? Mostly because I'm single, I guess. But I don't think I would be any more into it if I wasn't. I don't know :')

    1. Hey, Opal! :) *squeeee* I'm excited too!! I love giveaways.

      I totally understand that... When I was little, I really used to like it, but the past couple of years it's been less & less appealing to me. Like you said, probably because I'm single. :P Although I do love watching my dad buy roses & chocolate for my mom... They still have crushes on each other! I just think it's super sweet. lol! <3

  5. Oh wow, you were a missionary in Kenya?!? *FLAILS* THAT IS SO SO AWESOME!! And also congrats on being part of a magazine/book like this. :D (That cover is really really pretty too.)

    I don't...do anything for Valentine's. xD hehe. Actually my entire family was away on the Valentine weekend, so I basically just lay around and read books and it was VERY NICE. ;D

    1. Hiya, Cait! :) YES, I most certainly was... OH, IT WAS, CAIT!! SUPER AMAZING! An eye-opening experience to say the least. <3 And thank you! It's been an exciting project. (The lady in charge of that photo-shoot is soooo cool!! Check out VerityVaree.com when you have a chance. Her stuff is FAB!!)

      Girl... This sad little hermit did basically nothing too. I just had a movie-night with the clan. (aka, my little sibbies!) I was quite nice. Quiet & easy-going for me, thanks. ;)

      Thanks for stopping by, dear! <3

I love comments. Seriously, I love them! Feel free to discuss the post, ask questions, leave a link to your blog, or just make a passing remark about books & coffee...

(But PLEASE keep your comments kind & positive. Advice is fine, but meanness is not. Be sweet like chocolate & loving like Jesus and we will get along splendidly!)
