Last year I was introduced to the Ultimate Blog Party (UPB) sponsored by 5minutesformom. It was a great online party where I was introduced to some wonderful moms who hang out online! I know there are some of you who hang out on my blog that actually found me at the UPB10.
This year I’m throwing open the doors and really diving into the Ultimate Blog Party 2011! Every day, April 1-8, I will be giving away at least two (sometimes more!) copies of Hearts at Home books. Normally, I only blog Monday-Friday, but since the UPB11 is running through the weekend, I’ll be posting daily even through the weekend.
I’m looking forward to meeting some new moms and checking out some great mom blogs! If this is your first time here, pull up a chair and stay a while. You’ll find my posts listed by category over on the right (If you’re viewing my blog in an RSS feed or by email subscription, you’ll need to click over to jillsavage.org to actually see the categories!)
And don’t forget to check out www.hearts-at-home.org where you’ll learn about our mom conferences and even more great mom resources!
Today’s featured book is My Hearts at Home. Let me tell you a little about it. I once heard that the foundation of your life is laid in the first 20 years. After that, you’re building the remainder of your life on what was laid in that first 20 years. When I thought about that as a parent, I realized that I needed to be intentional about the foundation I was laying in my children’s life.
We would never even think about building a house without a set of blueprints. Those blueprints provide a vision of what we are building. Yet, everyday many of us are building families without a plan…without a vision…without a blueprint of what a healthy family experiences or what a firm foundation really looks like. My Heart’s at Home casts a vision for what you are working toward as a mom. It provides both the vision and the practical strategies you need to be the intentional mom your family needs.
If you’d like to be entered into a random drawing for one of the two copies of My Heart’s at Home I’m giving away today, leave a comment about one thing you intentionally do as a mom. (If you receive my posts by email or you came to this post via Mr. Linky from the UBP11 party, click HERE to leave a comment.)
I’ll share first…I intentionally try to listen with my eyes. Sometimes it’s hard to make it happen, but I try to stop what I’m doing, look at my husband or son or daughter, and listen with both my ears and my eyes.
Don’t forget to check back tomorrow and the next 7 days for some more wonderful giveaways!
Oh and one more thing…congratulations to Melissa whose email address begins with “ourheartforadoption”. She won Tuesday’s giveaway of the book Praying Through Your Adoption. You’ll receive an email, Melissa, with instructions for receiving the book. Thank you to all 52 of you who entered to win the book!
