Giveaway! Loving the Little Years PLUS find out what I've been up to

Though I've not been writing much lately I have been busy eating fasnachts reading a lot of phenomenal books! I guess it's something about the wintertime that makes me want to snuggle up with a good book... and  good books they have been!

I highly, highly recommend all of these books to you. Each one of them has challenged and encouraged me in so many ways.

Vision Forum has been gracious enough to give me an extra copy of Loving the Little Years so that I could share a copy with you!

Here are a few excerpts from the book that I particularly enjoyed:

"... you cannot resist your opportunities to be corrected by God and expect [your children] to receive correction from you."
"We are like characters in a story. Our essential self is not back in the intro, waiting to be rediscovered. Who you are is where you are. When you are married, your essential self is married. As the story grows, so does your character. Your children change you into a different person."
"As our children grow, we ought to be releasing them from our authority to God's authority alongside us."

To enter this giveaway, please leave a comment below sharing with us whether or not you've read any of these books (and what you thought about them)! I look forward to hearing from you. Oh, and be sure to check out my Books Worth Reading board on Pinterest! Contest ends midnight EST on Friday, 2/22!
