BFCG's 5th Birthday & Giveaways



I’m writing this post in absolute awe of what the Lord has done with this site.

With nearly 750 reviews, 300,000 pageviews, and thousands of followers, Books for Christian Girls is celebrating its five-year anniversary.

To be completely honest, I never even imagined doing this site for so long. I was 13, turning 14 soon, when I felt called to start this ministry, and while I didn’t think I’d be doing it for a short amount of time, I definitely didn’t image doing it this long.

Five years ago, tomorrow, the first review was posted.
That’s some pretty mind-blowing stuff right there.

To those reading this,
To those who have followed BFCG since day two, today, or anywhere in between,
To those who follow our Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, Pinterest, and all the other social media sites,
To those who share about this site,
To those who have the same Philippians 4:8 values that BFCG promotes,

THANK YOU

Your support of Books for Christian Girls and it’s ministry for five years now, the supportive community that surrounds us, is an absolutely amazing thing that I don’t take for granted.
Thank you for being here.
We want to show a bit of our appreciation by having some giveaways. There is five book packages for those in the USA, and not to leave out those outside of that country, there are two International giveaways for $15 Amazon giftcards. Please only enter the giftcard giveaways if you’re not in the US. Thank you. :)

  1. Congratulations on your 5 years, Lindsey!!! :)

    I have a question about the international giveaways: Will you be changing the money currency for whoever wins? I live in England and I can't use American dollars on our Amazon - only British pounds. :) Thanks!

    1. Hi there!
      Thanks so much for entering! :)
      That's a great question! Yes, they will be converted over to the winners' countries money system and the e-giftcards will be bought on their countries' Amazon site. I will definitely try my best to make it the easiest for the winner(s)! :)
      Thanks again! :)
      Have a wonderfully Blessed week!

  2. CONGRATS! I remember when you started your YouTube channel and how awesome it was to see new book recommendations. When I first watched your book haul and unboxing video I hadn’t read any of those books, or heard it the authors, now I have read almost every single one! Thanks so much for your reviews and convincing videos! <3

  34. Congrats on five years!!! That's awesome! Thank you for all you do! It is very appreciated!
    I found your blog by being nosy. I was looking through my moms Google Plus and found you. I then looked over your website, and through the next year would come back to your website for book recommendations. Once I became active on social media I found you that way and since then I've really used your blog a lot :D Thank you!!
