a little giving incentive

I’ve been wishing that I had a little something I could offer as a bribe gift for people who donate Expecting books. I know you don’t need any incentive (obviously–190 books!), but it can be fun, eh?

I finally thought of something. I have lots of Blushing Bride books taking up residence in my closet, and I’d love to pass some along to you. They make a great little White Elephant Gift or a Five Dollar Office Gift Exchange Gift or an I-Have-Dave’s-Aunt-Sally’s-Name-for-Christmas-and-NO-Idea-What-to-Get-Her Gift. Or an encouragement gift for a young (or not-so-young) wife at your church. Or your sister-in-law. Or your neighbor.


Wednesday and Thursday, if you go to the website and buy 2 Blushing Bride books ($6 each, shipping included), I will send you THREE Blushing books PLUS donate an Expecting book to a pregnancy center in your honor.

Wowzers, huh?

I’ll have another update soon on the Expecting books and where they’re going and whose names are on them, but I’m wiped tonight. I spent most of the day e-mailing and messaging people about the books and getting them ready to be sent. I had no idea it would be so time-consuming, but I’m not complaining ONE IOTA. This is awesome.

This sweet friend is helping me write in all of them (To: a very special Mama-to-be/From: Elizabeth with love and prayers/Date: November 18, 2009/Blessings to you and your little one! Marla Taviano Psalm 19:14) tomorrow. I did 15 yesterday and today and realized it would take me for-ever on my own. We’re also going to pack boxes, label and tape them and put together a little something special to add to the books. I’m excited!

Keep sending me the names of pregnancy centers you’re connected with. I eventually want to get everyone hooked up with books.

If you want to donate a book straight (w/o the incentive), just go here and give $5. To do the Blushing Bride package, go here, order 2 Blushing books, and I’ll send you 3 (let me know if you want them signed to friends) plusI’ll donate an Expecting book to a pregnancy center in your name. (yes, I just repeated everything I just wrote up there–awesome)

Thank you sooooo much, friends! I can’t tell you how much you’ve blessed my November. And I can’t WAIT to hear how your love and generosity has blessed women around the world!

So tell me: what’s one thing you love about Wednesdays?

    Without a doubt, leading worship and singing with all the kids at chapel at my girlies’ school! Two chapel services on Weds. AM – one for the bigs and one for the littles…it’s a highlight of my week!

    You are such a blessing! I am so excited to see what God is going to do through all of this! Isn’t it amazing to watch Him work when we step out of the way!?!

    Just want you to know that I am available to help you out too! Just let me know and I am there! Praying and believing for BIG things to come of this!!

    I have to let you know that last night I had dinner with a couple of girlfriends of mine. We talked fashion and food and the funny things our kids do. And then we talked marriage. I was shocked and heartbroken over what these two God-fearing women are going through in their marriages. It really put into perspective the awesome marriage my husband and I are buliding together.
    Then I come to your blog this morning and here you are throwing out a giving incentive that is PERFECT for my friends. Coincidence? I think not. What is really funny is that I have wanted to donate an Expecting book but I couldn’t figure out how to from your links. They just weren’t working for me. I went to your link to order the incentive package today and it worked just fine! God really has it all under control, doesn’t He? Please pray for these ladies. I put their names in the message information and I can’t wait to get these books in their sweet little hands. Thank you so much for making this available at the perfect time.
