Books 'n more

Just a few announcements and reminders for today.

My birthday giveaway ends tomorrow so make sure to enter if you want a chance to win!

The raffle for Sufficient Grace Ministries ends Sunday. If you'd like to win a captive opal necklace then make sure you get your entries! Rachel at Once Upon a Miracle is hosting a fundraiser at her blog in memory of her niece, Gracie. Stop by and read about this precious baby and leave a comment too! For each comment left a donation of $1 will go to Sufficient Grace Ministries. They are hoping to reach 500 so help them out!

The Reading Group is slated to start back up in July. We will be reading.......(drumroll please)...... In Faithfulness, He Afflicted Me by Lynnette Kraft. It won the vote by an overwhelming margin. :) In case you didn't know, Lynnette is a fellow blogger. (Click here to visit her blog.) We will start reading this book in July after the holiday weekend, so that will give everyone a couple weeks to pick up their book. I plan on getting mine off of Amazon. (More info on the reading will come later.)

The other books we will read in the following order after we finish Lynnette's book: 90 Minutes In Heaven, Let God Be God, and Waiting with Gabriel. There will also be a blog button for the Reading Group thanks to my friend Christina.

What do you think of it?

I hope everyone has a great weekend and a wonderful Father's Day! Remember to let the fathers in your life know how much you love and appreciate them!

Adorable Button!! I actually ordered my copy of Lynnette's book yesterday via paypal, so I hope to get mine soon :) Can't wait to start the reading group!

I don't think I'll be blogging tomorrow (visiting friends at a campsite), so i wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday a day early! I hope you enjoy the day with your family!
