Book Giveaway

I've decided to do my first giveway with a book. I will give 5 books counting this one away for the next 5 weeks. To enter all you have to do is leave a comment each week under the book giveaway and your name will go in a hat and one of my boys will draw the winner on each Friday.

This book has ideas for you to decorate your home on a budget, whatever your budget may be.

It is written by Mary Emmerling,with lots of great pics.

Good Luck!

Hi Karen, thanks for stopping by, I always welcome a new friends. You know Karen the Lord is good, and He says in His word that if we ask He will give us the desires of our hearts. He also says in His word, seek ye first the kingdom of the Lord and all these things will be added to you. So that leads me to believe that the Lord should be the desires of our heart, and if we just lean on Him with all our heart, He will provide all that we need. Deb
