This is a Sticky Post for the Bible Study Giveaway.
Original date: 8/24/07
It will stay here until Thursday night 8/30/07 about midnight.
I will announce the winners on Friday.

Scroll past this for my current post.



I know! I know! I promised you a surprise on Thursday! Well, Thursday went by in a blur at my house--More about that in a little bit. I promised a surprise and I plan to deliver. Here we go!

A GIVEAWAY

For those of you planning to participate in
Fall Bible Study at Cherish...the word!

A Woman's Heart

by Beth Moore

A benefactor has provided five books for a
Fall Bible Study Giveaway!
Yes, I said FIVE!
Five of these!

This is the description of this new study from Lifeway's on-line catalog:

"Discover the parallels of the Tabernacle’s building and your life as a chosen vessel of God.

While the title is familiar, the content for this in-depth video teaching series is all new and rich in detail.

Taken primarily from the Book of Exodus, A Woman’s Heart: God’s Dwelling Place by Beth Moore will take you on a fascinating journey into why God would chose to live in a wilderness tabernacle, made by human hands.

Taped in Beth’s home church in Houston, this updated edition of A Woman’s Heart contains all new video footage and exciting new graphics. Regardless of whether you studied Beth Moore’s first LifeWay study years ago, you’ll find A Woman’s Heart well worth another visit."


This giveaway is very simple. Just leave me a comment on this post and let me know you would like to be included in the drawing. Be sure you leave a valid email address so I can get in touch with you concerning your real address.


I will leave this post up until next Thursday, 8/30. Then I will either have a drawing or use a random number generator to pick the winners--depending on how many participate. (I'm not making a ginormous number of little slips with names on them like I did for the last giveaway!)

If you do not know about Fall Bible Study at
Cherish...the word! you can read my Wednesday post to get all the info. I hope you will consider joining us for this study. I think it will be great to learn together!

Prayers Please!

I am going to Texas to visit my brother. He has been diagnosed with a recurrence of cancer and is in the process of beginning radiation and chemo. My sister--who also lives in Texas but not in the same city--and I decided to go visit him this weekend. Our stepsister, who lives near my brother, will also be with us. We are going to love on him and give him our support as he begins this battle. He had surgery last year for this cancer. At his spring check-up there was no sign of cancer. Last week his doctors found that it had returned.

I wrote about my brother and his wife when they celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary in July. He is my only brother and is very special in my life. I am praying that God will use these doctors to provide a miracle. I love him and his whole precious family so very much.

This is going to be a quick trip. Some of you have read about my husband's illness. It is not easy for me to decide to be gone for several days. However, our sons will be with Lee while I am gone. He will be well cared for. I think they're planning a MAN Weekend! That's means non-stop sports--talk, TV, fantasy team strategizing, reminiscing about their own "glory days", etc! They probably won't even notice I'm gone!

You're not likely to see a post from me this weekend. I may be around reading and commenting a little bit. I'll be back early next week. Please keep my whole family in your prayers this weekend.

My plane leaves in 8 hours. I need to get some sleep!

Myrna, I am off to take my walk with Jesus this morning and will remember you and your family.

I think they will miss you ... the food will not keep coming from the kitchen.

And ... the giveaway clenches it for me. If, as you say, I can download the videos on my computer for free, I want to take the study.

So count me in on the giveaway!

 
At August 24, 2007 at 6:53 AM, Blogger Myrna said...

Becky, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to mislead--The downloads are not free--That's the only problem with this study! I have struggled with that. There is just no way around it.I guess if we could download for free no one would buy the product. Lifeway, unfortunately, is in the business of selling. I think the audios are cheaper, but it all costs. Of course, you can do the study in the book without the videos. You lose some of it that way--but I know people who have done that because they were studying on their own. ARGGH!

 
At August 24, 2007 at 6:57 AM, Blogger Myrna said...

I guess I better make it clear--The Giveaway is just for the books. I would love to have some of the kits to giveaway--But I don't see that happening!:-)

Sorry your brother's cancer has recurred. Y'all be careful travelling and have a good time visiting. I'll be praying for traveling grace and for God's healing for him.

Love and hugs,

I currently have a group of girlfriends that get together at my house once a week for Bible study. We started in May 2006 and have been going strong ever since. We're currently doing the Beth Moore book "Breaking Free". I love her stuff.

I will plan on jumping in on your study once our group is done with "Breaking Free". I don't want to study two Beth Moore books at once, I tend to get confused easily LOL and am likely to start the discussion off here with something I would possibly read out of the book you're doing.

Oh, and please enter me in the drawing!! Thanks for being so generous!

I did not know, until I read it here on your blog today that Beth Moore had a blog. How exciting!!

God bless :)
