A Thank You & Giveaway


Untitled design-7Today brings me to Day 5 of Jeff Goins’ Blog Like a Pro Challenge. While I am grateful I stumbled upon this event, I am tired. Someone in our Facebook group said it would take her a week to accomplish each day’s task. I have written a manifesto, managed to install plug-ins, designed an ebook (which is available to anyone who wants to subscribe to my blog), set up a pop-up (those annoying little things that dangle on the screen in front of what you’re trying to read. Yeah, one of those…), I now know how to design and dispense a newsletter – I’m novice, but I can do it, and I have guest posted. All in four days.

Our assignment today is to give something away to our trusty readers. And, you know what? It’s about time. You are all good to me. I appreciate your kind words, your encouragement, your invitations to expand on something I said. I am so grateful that there’s been nothing hateful or hurtful, I have not encountered anything divisive.

I am moved by you. Thank you.

Like many of us, expectations can get the best of me. I tend to be hard on myself, demanding perfection, and think I should (oooh, there’s that word – none of us should ever should on ourselves) do more or be farther or better.

You all keep me grounded – in love, in faith, in real, in generosity. Thank you.

So, in the spirit of being grounded. I am giving away a free copy of the book, “Grounded; Finding God in the World, A Spiritual Revolution” by Diana Butler Bass.

Please comment here, on this blog, and you will be entered into my raffle. Names will be drawn Friday, March 25. It will be completely honest and anonymous, monitored by my teenage children. How’s that for accuracy and fairness?

  1. Including shipping to Spain!? 🙂
    And a big THANK YOU right back for your posts and your honesty and willingness to share your life out loud.

    1. Thank you, Tracy. Yes, shipping to Spain. You definitely need it since you guys turned me on to her…

  2. I love your blog and I’m super impressed with your work to “blog like a pro.” Especially as Holy week begins and I realize not only did I not blog this week, I doubt I will next week. Unless I just post pictures of all the other work I’m doing which isn’t really “on message” for me.
    BUT hey! Love some DBB and maybe I’ll win her book in your giveaway 😉

    1. Ah Karen, you should sign up for this the next time around. It’s free and super informative. We learned much of it at our Workshop, but gets into a little more specifics. I’m grateful, but you definitely should NOT do this during Holy Week.

      So far your chances are good – it’s between you and my sis-in-law 🙂

  3. THANK YOU Jen for all your wonderful posts:)! It’s so neat to see you putting your gift of writing out there. This book looks really good, so I’d love to be in the raffle:).
    Love ya!

  4. When I read “economy of love” my thoughts go to the definition of “economy” as “household management.” So “economy of love” becomes “household of love.” Thanks for this!

  5. wow, girl. I didn’t get past day 2 of the blogging challenge but I’m super thankful that you did. 🙂 love your writing, your gifting for encouragement, and I look forward to reading more. blessings, friend!
