Bookshelf - Housewife theologian

This week we're talking about a brand new book titled Housewife Theologian by Aimee Byrd.

In this book Ms. Byrd helps us find meaning in the most mundane moments of life. She strives to empower us, as women, to see our position as wives and mothers, as a noble calling. To evaluate our Christian walk and embrace the term theologian as we attempt to know God as intimately as possible.

I found this book gentle and charming. I loved the way the the author used scripture to lead me through things that I deal with on a regular basis. The thoughts and insecurities that swirl through my brain, the interactions I have with friends, children, and my darling Jory (who isn't always that darling.)

I also loved how she closed each chapter with journaling questions to be used (and shared) in a workshop format with a friend or two who may need to talk through what they've read.

So the best news ever, I have three copies to give away this week. One for you, and if you have two friends who would benefit from this, talk them into entering so they have a chance to win too.

(Did that make sense? One book per winner.Your beautiful charming friends also have to enter if they want to win.)

But I hope they do enter, because I want you to have girls coffee time with your journals and the good conversations that this book has to offer. So go get your friends already.

Gimme a comment here or on my facebook fan page (the comment thingy is temperamental, if you don't see your comment, I didn't get it!) and I'll pick a winner on Friday night! Yea!

Sounds like a perfect book for me to read as the weather changes, which means more time indoors and less time on some sports field, and actually having time to read again! :)

Thank you for the giveaway. I'd love to read this book. Honestly, I need a lot of encouragement to be a good homemaker! Whenever I have a good handle on one thing, it seems like something else always slips!
