I Can't Believe It! A Giveaway! Really? Whoa!


JOYOUS NEW YEAR!!!
WELCOME, 2011!

Hi everyone!

I simply can't believe that there are actually 500+ of you that 
want to follow along as I blog.
I am honored.

And just so you know, I don't think of you as numbers,
I think of you as smiling faces of women with the same hurts, joys, faults,
hopes and dreams as I have and it is my joy to 
be an encouragement to you as we all do life and homemaking together!

So, I wanna thank all of you for trusting me with your time and thoughts
by giving you something.

It is one of my favorite things.

Life: Beautiful. A magazine.
A whole year's subscription.




Most of you have never heard of this magazine.
I hadn't either, until...
I happened upon it a few years ago in Wal-Mart.
Now Barnes and Noble carries it, too.

I love this magazine because it is a combination of Better Homes and Gardens,
Country Living, the Bible, Veranda, Crafting Books, Devotionals, Cookbooks,
Focus on the Family...

Click here to read their Mission Statement.

Every give-away I have ever had includes a current issue of this publication.
I just love it so much!
I just know you will, too!

Some of the past issues and their contents.

  1. I would not at all mind having a subscription to this magazine! I've never read it, and am curious how it compares with Martha Stewart Living, etc.

    Oh, and this is Jenni P.

  15. Hi Leslie! Congratulations on topping 500 followers! You deserve every one of them, no doubt. I'm proud that I'm already your friend! :)

    You've done a good job of "selling" me on this magazine--even though I already have too many magazine subscriptions, it looks to me as if I should check this one out. I guess I'll wait until after you choose the giveaway winner; I suppose it's possible that I could win! Thank you for doing such a sweet giveaway. The magazine should put you on their PR staff!

  37. Hi, Leslie. I have been lurking on your blog for some time and finally decided to follow! I had never heard of this magazine but it seems to sum up all that the Christian homemaker is about! I noticed above that the summer 2007 issue has an article about one of my childhood friends, so I KNOW it has to be a great publication!

    Blessings,
