GIVEAWAY ~ SET
Do you long for stronger, healthier relationships? As you go about your daily life, do you feel like you have lost the sense of joy and hope that you had as a young woman? If so, this set of books may be just what you need. I do have a set to giveaway!
The first book is Dancing With My Father, by Sally Clarkson. I have loved Sally Clarkson’s work since I first became a homeschool mom and someone gave me a copy of Educating The WholeHearted Child. That particular book absolutely changed the way I viewed my children and how I viewed myself as a mom—yes, it actually did change my life!
And now, as I read her new book, Dancing With My Father, Clarkson speaks directly to my heart yet again as she discusses an almost “taboo” subject, why a Christian woman may not be feeling the joy that a relationship with Christ should and can bring.
Her writing is honest and warm. Within the book, she does not just bring up questions…but follows them up with actual ways for her readers to find answers—with her own stories as well as study portions at the end of chapters and quotes and bible verses. I expect that this book will soon be used in many bible study circles.
The Official Word:
The reality of living in a broken, fallen world can leave women feeling overcome by fear, guilt, and weariness. Many develop “sawdust souls,” numb to any sense of joy.
Through rich biblical insights woven with real-life stories, women will be inspired to recapture a spirit of joy as they follow God’s lead on the dance floor of life.
Sally Clarkson is a popular speaker, known across the nation and internationally for her work with women. She is the author of several books, including The Mission of Motherhood, The Ministry of Motherhood, and Seasons of a Mother’s Heart. She has worked in various ministries, including Campus Crusade for Christ. With her husband, Clay, she is cofounder of Whole Heart Ministries, which encourages and equips Christian parents. The Clarksons, parents of four, live near Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Mother Daughter Duet, by Cheri Fuller is another must read book for a Mom. Personally, I have daughters and sons. I honestly believe girls are much harder to raise and get along with than boys! I mean, come on—I’d rather have dirt and frogs any day over bad moods and drama.
In Mother Daughter Duet, Fuller explores our complicated Mother Daughter relationships and offers help in creating that great relationship you want with your daughter.
The Official Word:
When a daughter is born, her mother has a thousand hopes and dreams for her, especially that they will be best friends one day.
Unfortunately, even the best of intentions can go awry. There are so many challenges on the journey to adult friendship that the reality is fraught with friction and frustration. But a harmonious relationship is possible.
Award-winning author Cheri Fuller and her daughter, Ali Plum, have been there and have discovered the keys to a healthy relationship. In Mother-Daughter Duet they share their story—each from her own perspective—in which they have experienced distance and tension, growth and challenge, and, ultimately, acceptance and harmony. Filled with personal anecdotes and based on several basic principles (letting go; listening; respect; setting boundaries; and more), Mother-Daughter Duet helps moms repair the breach so that daughters want to draw close.
Cheri Fuller is a best-selling, award-winning author whose books have sold more than one million copies. She speaks to a wide range of women at women’s conferences and is a frequent guest on national radio and television programs.
Ali Plum is Cheri’s daughter, a writer and songwriter, a wife, and a mother to Noah and Luke. She and her mom have weathered the ups and downs of their relationship to find one of the most treasured, honest relationships of their lives. Ali has recorded background vocals for popular musicians, and Mother-Daughter Duet marks her debut into book publishing.
