It's Giveaway time!!

It's time for another GIVEAWAY! How fun is this...I love giveaways! 'Tis better to give than to receive...'
Because it's Tuesday. And because I planted kale, chard, parsnips and peas yesterday. And because I caught the naughty chickens before they went into the garden and scratched up all my newly planted seeds. Because the sun is out and the sky is blue. And because I'm nice...ahem...I want to give away this bible...Grace for the Moment Daily Bible by Max Lucado.
It is a softcover bible put together in such a way that you can read a bit of God's Word each day...and if you do read it each day, at the end of the year, you'll have read the whole bible! And I've read the whole bible...in 2007...and I have to say...it was a great experience. And I also have to say...it's amazing. And the Old Testament IS relevant. Amazingly so. I'm just sayin'. But wait...there's more! This bible also has a devotion at the beginning of each daily reading.
To win this very cool devotional bible just leave a comment here on this post and tell me this:
Did you grow up in church your whole life? Or is walking with God something new for you?
I can't wait to hear your comments! Have a great day! And Good Luck!
**The winner will be chosen by random drawing on Friday!**

My family began attending church when I was in the 5th grade.
How I long for a church home now. I miss all of what it could be.

We went to a very small country church beginning when I was around 1st or 2nd grade. I found it to be boring. I never paid attention and the hymns were sung to slow. As I grew older I sat in the back and passed notes during the service. I went to a Christian school. Had all the Christian experiences but then turned from it all in college (not completely but church was not in my schedule) - it was not until I was pregnant with Josh that I began getting back to God. I have drifted a time or two since then but I would say RIGHT NOW is the closest to God I have felt in a long time. That comes from reading The Word.

My family all came to Christ later on in life. I started going to church when I was 19 years old. I accepted Christ when I was 16; me being the first on in our family, then my little brother, my big brother, my dad and my mom. Woo! Hoo.. He's got the whole family now :)
Thanks for asking!

I grew up in the church. My daddy made sure everyone went to church on Sundays. My first Sunday school teacher was Miss Velma and she gave me a stick of Juicy Fruit every Sunday. She reminded me of that every time I saw even into her 80's.

Like dmoms, I strayed a bit in college. I married a Christian but we didn't go to church services. It wasn't until the birth of our first daughter, we started attending regularly. There's something about being responsible for a tiny little human that made me realize I needed somebody big to help me through life. Just recently I've started reading my Bible regularly and listening to Christian radio. I can tell a difference in my attitude when I spend time with Him daily.

I grew up in church. We attended a small Mehodist church in the hills of North GA.
The rest of my life was pretty awful, since my dad was an alcoholic and my mom was mentally ill, but God was (is) my refuge.

I did grow up going to church- the same Mennonite church where my parent's grew up. The majority of my extended family attended there as well. Attending church on Sundays was a given, not an option, as long as we were living with my parents. I'm thankful for the habit. Thanks for the giveaway, Michelle.

Baptized presbyterian, confirmed methodist, and spent 8 years in catholic school. I still miss going to mass. There were times I'd be going to church a few times a week - at school, then on Sunday with my parents. Youth group trips were the best. My attendance has strayed a bit as an adult, but I am looking.. The whole bible in a year? Great idea!

I had some church exposure as a child but despised it. Two experiences in life have given me belief: kissing my now husband for the first time and my Grandmother's funeral. Both times I felt a higher power at work. I have faith but don't know how to classify it....I try and expose my children to God through biblical stories and with the "because that is God made it" answer. :)
