Okay, it's official. I now have a reason for a mini-party and give away! Plus, I need a little fun in my life right now!
I officially have 100 followers!
When I firsted started my blog it really didn't matter to me how many followers I had, I just wanted to minister to whom ever the Lord wanted me to. Several years ago while I was whining about not affecting very many women, the Lord asked me "would I rather speak to a room full of women who were only mildly interested in what I had to say or would I rather speak right to the heart of the woman He put in my path?" I got it. It doesn't matter how many women, it matters if they are the women whose hearts He has prepared.
It was incredibly cool, though, when I got my first follower. I screamed and startled my family. I was like a little kid on Christmas morning, still am actually, over each follower. I appreciate each of you who come here frequently to read what the Lord puts on this crazy little mama's heart, and am humbled by the comments and emails. So I thought a party and a give-away would be a fun way to celebrate.
Some of you might remember the 'Titus 2 Blog Party' that I hosted. Part of my purpose in that party was to link like-minded women together and to help increase each other's readership. That is what I want to do now with this little party. I have gotten to know some very amazing women through 'blogging' and would love for you all to get to know each other.
I want to have a give-away. The package will include Sally Clarkson's Mission of Motherhood, Hannah Whitall Smith's The Christian's Secret to a Happy Life and whatever other goodies I can find to throw in there! All you have to do to get your name entered in the drawing is write a post on your blog introducing yourself. Tell us who you are, what is the purpose of your blog, what type of things do you write about, pictures, ect. Then come back here and link up to Mr. Linky. That is it! That way we can go visiting to learn more about each other.
I will keep Mr. Linky open until Friday and then hold the drawing. You do not need to be a follower to enter, nor do you need to sign up to be a follower, this is not what it is about. You can invite your friends by posting about it on your blog and invite them to link up and get their name entered in also. Whoever signs into Mr. Linky will get their name entered in the drawing. Go and visit all the wonderful blogs entered in Mr. Linky and get to know some new people or visit some old friends!
