Blogging Birthday Giveaway

Photobucket
It was January 22nd of last year that I started this little blog. It has been so nice to feel connected to people. In appreciation for all your kind comments, helpful words of advice, and prayers, I've made a little something for somebody out there.

Okay, I realize that this picture is really lame. I'm not giving away a nearly-empty jar of homemade skin cream that feels and smells like "heaven in a jar"(as one person described it.) I'm actually giving away a full jar of homemade skin cream that feels and smells like "heaven in a jar". It's just that I need to go get more herbs so I can make it. And I will. It's going to be a nice full jar. I promise.

And a good homeschooling book to help you along the way.

  1. Dear Sarah...

    My comment is not being left so that I can win. It's to say...

    I'm so glad you started blogging a year ago. Whenever I come to your little "spot", I am challenged as a parent and/or your Sister. I am encouraged by your words. I am touched by your portraits of your family. Thank you, thank you, thank you my friend!

    PS: I'm sure whoever the winner is will be a glad recipient of your thoughtful gifts! :)

  2. Sarah,

    I so enjoy your blog. I read it daily (sometimes more) for ideas and inspiration with my own homeschooling journey.
    So I'm "entering" ;) I'm always up for new material to help my children, and your skin cream looks awesome.

  9. A few things...I came over to tell you that I will absolutely be praying for your pastor's family and their utter disappointment. Can you drop me an email at beccagroves@gmail.com? I'd like to ask you a few follow-up questions...

    And, I have to agree with the beautiful comments left already, your blog is stunning and always feels like a special place set apart that is so honest, true and inspiring. I am in awe how the blogging world connects us...
