On this journey to FABULOUS, it's always great to get a little help from a friend. And, my good friend, Lysa TerKeurst, has given me 5 copies of her latest book, Made to Crave! I'm so excited because this New York Time's Bestseller is not a diet "how-to" book, it's all about finding our "want-to" and learning to put God in food's place in our lives. Something I desperately need to train myself to do!
I can't say enough about Lysa and her impact on women's lives all around the world. As the president of Proverbs 31 Ministries (and a two-time guest on Oprah), she writes and speaks to the female heart with the understanding of a best girlfriend. I've been privileged to work with Lysa as the radio consultant for the Proverbs 31 Ministries one-minute radio program for women for about 7 years now. Wow, has it really been that long? Actually, I started working with them in 2003, so it's more like 8 years! Shew! Time doesn't just fly, it jettisons!
Anyway, I'd suggest taking some time to learn more about Lysa at www.lysaterkeurst.com. Her life is full of stories I know you'll relate to and her daily blog is refreshing! Plus, right now she's doing a live podcast series on Made to Crave on Monday nights. You can read about that at her site, too. It's a lot of fun on top of being inspirational and informational!
So, how am I going to give away these little books that have been hard to get lately? I'm simply going to do a random drawing. But, there's more...so stay tuned!
All you have to do to win the book is sign up to follow my blog right here (www.tellmeitsnottoolate.blogspot.com). That's it. But, do it right away because I will draw the five winning names from the list of all my followers this Friday (2/4/11) at noon, central time.
Now for the "there's more"... Whether or not you win the book from me, I'd like to invite you to a cyber book club. Each week we'll read one chapter of Made to Crave and go through the discussion questions together through my blog. I'll post my answers to the questions and look forward to having a great conversation with you as you post YOUR answers or other comments. We'll begin with the questions for Chapter 1 on Monday, February 21, 2011. I'll post my thoughts by that evening and we'll continue with Made to Crave Mondays until we finish the book and are ready for bikinis, ha!. Seriously, I'm looking forward to drawing closer to God and allowing Him to take the priority in my life that I've freely handed over to food for several years now.
OK, good luck! Remember to sign up to follow the blog so you can be eligible to win! And, I'm looking forward to a whole new way to travel together along the road to becoming FABULOUS!!!!
