Delight Yourself in the Lord . . . Even on Bad Hair Days . . . Free!

Photobucket"Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." (Psalm 37:4) Probably the most quoted promise in the Bible, this one passage of scripture inspires hope, sustains faith, and oozes with joy.

This extra posting is to highlight the devotional I'll give away to three readers next Saturday, Delight Yourself in the Lord . . . Even on Bad Hair Days. I had the pleasure of working with Kristin Billerback, Sandra D. Bricker, Diann Hunt, and Debby Mayne to put together this fun, touching devotional for women on the go. Here's a quick description of the book:

Whether single or married, career girl or stay-at-home mom, today's Christian woman is faced with daily obstacles. Delight Yourself in the Lord . . . Even on Bad Hair Days is a devotional filled with upbeat reminders about infusing hope and joy in the Lord as the first step toward conquering life's problems and chasing down the desires of your heart. Through 100 funny and thought-provoking devotions, the authors remind women to go back to the basics with God. And we even share a few private "bad hair confessions" along the way!

"The authors of this devotional know what it's like to face the difficult moments in life and to have their faith deepen because of those moments. Your faith will be deepened, too." Robin Lee Hatcher, bestselling author of Fit to Be Tied and A Matter of Character.

"Thank goodness for five funny women who are brave enough to bare their hearts--and of course, commiserate about truly bad hair days. For me, it's an irresistible combination!" Shelley Shepard Gray, author of the Seasons of Sugarcreek series.

"I laughed, cried, and pondered my own life. If you buy one devotional this year, buy this one!" Colleen Coble, author of the Rock Harbor series and the Mercy Falls series.

I'm entering for a friend who was recently diagnosed with brain cancer and has been given two years to live. This devotion would be a treasure to her as she waits in the hospital for her radiation and chemo therapies and I know she it would bless her greatly and would remind her of God's love.

I am a big fan of Trish, Kristin, and Diann (who I know is battling cancer). As a Christian mental health therapist, I am always looking for inspirational books (often humorous) to share with clients who are struggling with depression, loss, and other life stressors. I would love a copy of your book to read and recommend!

I would love to win this! I am familiar with 4 of the authors and love their work. Also, this sounds like a "real" devotional book for "real" women...not one that leaves me feeling guilty for not being more than I am.


Christina said...

I love the title, not only that I think this book would be awesome to use with our Wednesday night women's group. Besides, I'm not sure I know what a good hair day is. *g*

Thanks for your comments so far. All good reasons! Randi, you really hit it on the head--for "real" women, not the perfect fantasies we sometimes expect ourselves to be.

This appeals to me because I love all the authors. I also am single and find it hard to find devotionals that work for all walks of life.

The ccver of this book alone brings a smile. I love all the authors and I personally could use this devotional book to share with others and remember that I am God's regardless of what each day brings and how much physical pain each morning brings, he is in charge and loves me through my dirty house, my unfixed hair and no makeup. I enjoy humor because it makes me laugh. Laughing is so good for us, it's healthy and healing and good for the tummy muscles. Thank you for offering this wonderful book and for the chance to win it. I hope I win!

Sharing his Faith,
Barb Shelton
