This seems to be a month of giveaways! The winner of the book The Antelope in the Living Room by Melanie Shankle is commenter #12 Tracy Stanley. Tracy, send me your address and I will get your copy headed in your direction.
Today I’ve got a new giveaway– four vouchers to go see a new movie that comes out this weekend. It is called ‘Son of God‘ and the vouchers can be redeemed to use in any theater as long as it is showing. Here’s what the Dove Foundation had to say about the movie.
I’m always a little leery of movie presentations of faith– often producers use their creative license pretty liberally. But John and I are looking forward to taking our teens to check this one out for ourselves. If nothing else, it is a great springboard and opportunity to talk with others about our faith. And the musical score was done by Hans Zimmer, one of my husband’s favorite composers. (He’s a big fan of dramatic orchestral musical numbers.) Here’s the official movie trailer so you can get a feel for it.
I am going to give away these tickets in pairs, so that two families will have the chance to see this movie more affordably — or free, depending on the size of your family. To enter the drawing, comment below and tell me about a movie you enjoyed recently. I’ll choose a winner on Thursday, so get commenting!
Because these vouchers are e-vouchers, if the winner replies quickly, I might even be able to get them to you in time to see the movie this weekend– if I can find time in the midst of the Refresh conference anyway.
Speaking of which, if you’re in the Seattle area and are interested in attending Refresh (a conference for adoptive and foster families) online registration is closed, but you can still show up on Friday and register in person. There are lots of good speakers, including Deborah Gray (she wrote Attaching in Adoption) and Milan and Kay Yerkovich (authors of How We Love). I’m excited to be team-leading a couple sessions with two awesome mommas. Lisa Qualls of One Thankful Mom and I are doing a talk on having faith in hard times, and Jen Summers (a fellow mom of ten!) and I are talking about large family logistics. Should be fun!
