I’m so glad you are here! Today is a celebration for all of us fresh out of amazing girls. I wish you were here in my kitchen with me. I promise you the coffee would be flowing and we’d be eating something yummy. I would not be here without you. This book (and 2 others) started right here on this blog. I feel like as the layers of my heart have peeled back, you have been the best kind of friends. You have cried with me, rejoiced, and more importantly prayed.

Thank you is small. But it comes from the best part of my heart! Know that I’m grateful for you.


Now! Let’s celebrate! 

If you weren’t here yesterday, be sure to drop by and get your free goodies right here. They include a beautiful book inspired lock screen to dress up your phone and a Spotify play list of some of my favorite songs! Click here for those!

Today I’m partnering with a couple of my favorite companies and you get a chance to win some really cool things!

Giveaway #1: Trades of Hope {5}

“So many women live in poverty, not because they lack abilities, but because they lack opportunity. We started Trades of Hope to give women that opportunity for a better life. Each woman has a story, and with Trades of Hope’s help, their story has changed from pain and struggle to a story of hope!

We work with the artisans themselves and organizations that are helping women in difficult circumstances. Some women have been rescued from sex slavery. Others are raising handicapped children alone. Some are in war torn countries and others have HIV/AIDS and leprosy. These women have never had the chances we’ve had, yet they are just like us in so many ways. They love their families and hope and dream of a better life for them. ” {from their website}

I knew I wanted to celebrate by giving back this week! I picked out one of my favorite Trades of Hope necklaces called “Eternal Seeds” made by women in Costa Rica. My friend Christy helped me order them and I can’t wait for 5 of you to get a chance to win one!


 I am crazy about the tassel!

Giveaway #2: Dayspring {1}

I love Dayspring. They make the best gifts and items for your home! Lately, I’ve been loving these adorable teacups for yummy things like coffee, tea (of course) or if you are one of my girls, a cup full of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. Dayspring was kind enough to donate a set of them for one you to win! Yay!


For everyone! Plus if you don’t win you can grab a teacup for just $5. They are having a secret sale for us! Just use the code: SIPAWAY when you check out. Go here to pick your favorite or get all three! 

Giveaway #3: Print + Gift Card {3}

When I asked my friend Becky to design a print based on the book I was so excited by what she sent me! This verse weaved its way into my heart as I wrote.  As you may recall this same print was a free “download” if you pre-ordered the book. For this giveaway I’m going to send you an actual print! Yay, and how about a $5 gift card to help you go buy Fresh Out of Amazing?
