GIVEAWAY of a fabulous YA read...

PRAYING FOR YOUR FUTURE HUSBAND - PREPARING YOUR HEART FOR HIS by Tricia Goyer and Robin Jones Gunn is a fantastic book I want to personally shove into the hands of each and every 13 year old girl and older.

And as you can see, I started even earlier...hehehe.

Here's the industry info on this fabulous, must-have nonfiction novel:

Have you ever thought about praying for your future husband?
Will it make a difference?
There's only one way to find out…

From when we were small girls, most of us dream of “The One,” our future husband. We think about what it would be like to be a bride. We wonder who that special guy is and when we'll find him. The great news is that what you do now can make a difference in your life and the life of your future husband!

Authors and good friends Robin Jones Gunn (Christy Miller series) and Tricia Goyer (author and former teen mom) believe God answers women's prayers for husbands—even husbands they may not meet for years. They invite young women to pray boldly for their future mate … while also asking God to prepare their own hearts.

In Praying for Your Future Husband, Robin and Tricia share their two vastly different experiences, including the things they did right and the mistakes they made on the path to meeting and marrying their husbands. Each chapter includes helpful Bible verses, prayers, and practical application, along with true stories of women who prayed for a husband and how God answered in remarkable ways.

God has a beautiful romance prepared for you. Prayer is the key to unlocking the love story … with your future husband and with God, the lover of your soul.

If you don't already know Tricia and Robin, then you're missing out! I've had the honor of meeting and chatting with them both in person, multiple times, and I'd easily put them at the top of various lists, titled "Sincere", "Warm", "Friendly", "Sweet", "Talented", and "Has a Huge Heart For God" !!! :)

Here's some bio info on them:

Robin Jones Gunn has written more than 70 books, including the well-loved Christy Miller and Sierra Jensen series, and more than 4 million copies of her books have sold. Robin and her husband have been married for more than 34 years, and they have two grown children.

Tricia Goyer, the author of more than 25 books, has drawn from her experiences as a teen mother and leader of today’s generation to be a voice of hope for women. Tricia has been married for more than twenty years and is the mother of four children.

And now for the best part - the GIVEAWAY! That's right. You can have this book for FREE. I'm giving away a fabulous version of this novel and...guess what else? A copy of my own recent release, FIREMAN DAD, by Love Inspired, just for fun. Because really, the only thing better than a free book is TWO free books, right?

Sign up by leaving a comment on this blog post, and I'll do the drawing next Monday morning (a sure way to brighten it up!) In the comment, simply state why you want the book, what appeals to you about it, if you've read other books by Tricia or Robin, or etc. Nothing fancy ::wink::

So go ahead...whatcha waiting for??? :)

Oh, what a beautiful giveaway--I would love to enter!

This book appeals to me a lot because I am all for praying for my future husband! It's a great thing for girls to do in their young womanhood. :)

Robin Jones Gunn is my FAVORITE!!!! I've read the Christy Miller series at LEAST a dozen times! She's such an amazing author.
I think its important to pray for your future husband because it prepares your heart for what God has in store for you. It prepares you for his plan, and makes you trust in his timing.

Awesome giveaway! I read a review about this book on another blog, and they said it was really good. I just finished reading the Christy Miller series by Robin. Christy prayed for her future husband, and even wrote him a few letters. I've also read a post about praying for your future husband. I thought this was a lovely idea, so I decided to pray for my future husband too. So I'd love to read this book! :)

How beautiful...

I've had convictions established about my future courtship life (as I can see you did, too;)) , and pray daily about G-d bringing them to life in my heart, and my future husband. Without our Jesus... what a life I would have... He is so good to us.

Blessings on your day!
