Meeting Amy Clipston & One-year-Giveaway!


Hi y’all!
Today was a very special day! We met Mrs. Amy Clipston & this blog ‘Books for Christian Girls’ is one year old! Yep! A double celebration! My parents and I drove (well, my Daddy drove us. ;)  ) to the Texas Library Convention earlier today and wow! I’ve never seen so many people talking about books! It was so cool! I had already mapped out which booths I wanted to visit, so we only visited the two Christian Publishers there. At the Zondervan/Zonderkids/Blink booth Mrs. Amy Clipston was signing books and taking pictures:

At the Tyndale booth, {we just had to ask how to say “Tyndale” (My Mom and I have a debate going on with how you say “Tyndale”, we ask… and she was right. ;) It’s “TEN-dale”. I guess Mothers do know everything. ;) )} and Author Allison Pittman was signing her new book “All for a Story” (review up sometime this month!).

And now it's time for our One-year-old birthday giveaway!



What we’re giving away:
*a signed copy of “Roadside Assistance” by Amy Clipston
*a copy of “If the Shoe Fits” by Sandra D. Bricker
*five different signed bookmarks from Amy Clipston
*two different bookmarks from Melody Carlson
*a “Destination Unknown” luggage tag
*a signed pamphlet with all of Beverly Lewis’ books  and
*an Amy Clipston pen & Kidney Foundation Bracelet (An organization that is very near to Mrs. Clipston heart)



Pretty awesome, right?! :D Let’s start the giveaway!
a Rafflecopter giveaway


I’d also like to say “Thank you!” to the authors and publishers for this fun stuff! The only thing I bought was the copy of “Roadside Assistance”!
And “Thank you!” to the wonderful readers of this blog! I still find it hard to believe I’m not just talking to the web--but real (!real!) people are reading and sharing this blog! Amazing! So “Thank you!!”

Y’all have a wonderfully blessed week and keep sharing this blog! ;)

  2. I am so excited. I just found your blog via Soul Inspirationz. I have been needing a go-to source for my daughter since she doesn't take my word on books. I would love for you to post a review on Jeffrey Overstreet's Auralia's Colors.
