Nobody Does It Better. . .

than Lisa Samson. And I’ve got proof.

I haven’t run a contest here for a while so I figure it is about time.

Lisa’s latest, Finding Hollywood Nobody, is great reading fun. In case you don’t believe me, I’m giving away a copy, just to prove it. Here’s all you have to do: Tell us your favorite recipe for making Grilled (or Toasted) Cheese Sandwiches. Everyone who leaves a comment with their recipe on my comment page will go into a drawing and the winner will receive a copy of Finding Hollywood Nobody. It’s that easy. And in case you’d like to know a little more about the book before you commit,click here to see my review.

All this talk of cheese is making me hungry so I’ll close and go whip up some fetticini alfredo--or something equally cheesy.

Abundant blessings!

Blog Tour Time

I know it’s been a while and I promise to catch you up soon. In the meantime, I wanted to let you know what I’ve been reading—at least one book I’ve been reading.

I inhaled the third book in Tricia Goyer’s Chronicles of the Spanish Civil War, A Whisper of Freedom and joined her blog tour. Click here to see all the other stops.
To help promote, Tricia’s running a Me-me. Here are my answers.
1. List three things you would do with a chest full of gold (assuming you got to keep it!)
a. Give to my church
b. Set up a fund for my family.
c. Set up a charitable donations foundation—ones I like: Habitat for Humanity, Samaritan’s Purse, Silent Blessings, KLOVE radio
2. List three charities/missions/organizations you support (and why).
See above (that was easy)
3. List three ways you have volunteered your time/services.
a. Helping kids in the school room at Phoenix Children’s Hospital
b. Cleaning up trash from streets in our town
c. Tutoring after school to help kids
4. List three things you keep "hidden" when company comes over.
a. My bedroom
b. The Arizona room
c. My bathroom
5. List the last three things you've lost.
a. one of my diamond earrings (this one is killing me)
b. my temper (this one, too, but for other reasons)
c. one of the Blokus games from my classroom
6. List the last three things you've found.
a. how to play some computer games I didn’t realize I had
b. a micro SD card I’d forgotten I had
c. my meds—Alyssa had cleaned for me and I couldn’t find them at first. (oops, guess I should have listed this with number 5.

You can answer these yourself in the comments or just link to your blog. Also you can read my review here. Yep, I loved it.

During the tour, you can enter to win one of FIVE signed copies of A Whisper of Freedom by signing up for Tricia's newsletter here!

Three brave "players" will be selected at random to win their own lost gold (Gourmet chocolate coins and all three books in the Chronicles of the Spanish Civil War series). To enter all you have to do is answer the MEME on your blog and then leave a comment on Tricia’s blog tour post here" that you’ve posted your MEME. Easy.

I’ll catch up soon, promise.

Abundant blessings all!
