Updated: We have a winner! Kate Walker is the big winner of For The Love AND Simply Tuesday!!
And SURPRISE! I have three extra copies of For The Love to give away. So, Amber Carsten, Cali Wright, and Sarah Autry, you all get one also!!!!
I wish I had a copy to give to every single one of you who entered. Thank you for reading and sharing and loving on Emily and Jen along with me!
I love books. (See the What I’m Reading link above for a peek into my book-life.) I love physical books with pages made of paper. I love the smell and the pretty covers. I love them almost as much as I love reading them.
So! I’m giving some away!
Both of these books release tomorrow. I read them this summer and absolutely fell in love–with their words, with the hearts behind them, with the community of grace they are helping to build.
In her gentle and gracious way, Emily invites you to sit, to rest, to listen to your life right now, where you are, and to hear the beauty in moments both big and small. Learn some every-day ways to practice being a kingdom-dweller instead of a kingdom-builder. Exhale a sigh of relief as she unfolds a tapestry of truth—real, Biblical, Jesus-truth—the kind of truth that empowers you to excuse yourself from the rat race and, instead, grab hands with Christ as he walks with you through the slow, simple minutes of life.
What if, instead of thinking we have to choose between our ordinary life and an extraordinary life, we began to realize they’re the same thing? What if we stopped asking God for big ways to serve him and started walking with our friend Jesus into the next simple moment in front of us?

I turned the final page of For the Love and immediately wanted to share it with every woman I know. Jen has her finger on the pulse of our generation, leading a revolutionary return to the basics:
unity, grace, encouragement, affirmation, love.
Our tribe need not be ruled by scarcity; there is enough for every woman to live beautifully. A rising tide lifts every boat in the harbor; when one woman rises, we all rise. Let’s open our hands and give it all away—esteem honor, attention, love. What’s good for one is good for all.
Are you hooked yet?
I thought so.
So, how do you win?
For one entry, follow Emily and Jen in at least one way. Here are the links to their social media pages:
**If you do this, please be sure to comment here or email me to let me know where you followed them!
For two entries, share about one or both of the books on social media. You can either share this post or share one of the authors’ posts. I’m not looking for my own publicity here–I just want people to know and love these gals like I do (you know, as a reader. They have no idea who I am.)
**Again, for this option, be sure to let me know that you shared and how/where!
**Yes, you can do all of the above for a total of three entries.
And that’s it! You’ll need to follow and/or share before Friday, August 21 at 11:59 CST. On Saturday, I’ll tally up the entries and draw a name out of a hat. (Seriously, I will. No automated, newfangled rafflecopters here.)
I sincerely hope that you will read these books, even if you don’t win a free copy. They are full of such truth and love. Today is the last day to pre-order, and there are fun freebies for those who pre-order — for both books! Click on the title of the book above for more info!
