Everyday Matters Bible for Women Giveaway
 More Facebook likes, more Bible given away
Online descriptions:  Today's Christian woman is so busy handling the challenges of day-to-day life that spending time in the Word can easily become yet another 'should' buried in that growing list of daily 'musts.' Created in partnership with Kyria.com, Christianity Today's women's magazine, the Everyday Matters Bible for Women is designed to help women develop spiritual practices that will make their lives richer, not harder. It offers practical encouragement and tools to renew, reinvigorate and restore meaning to everyday life. This Bible features twenty-four disciplines-or practices-that position us to receive power and strength to do those things that we cannot possibly do on our own and make everyday life fuller and deeper. Each discipline is represented by a colorful icon whose illustration is a reminder of its meaning.  New Living Translation -- Nearly 150 contributors include Kay Warren, Priscilla Shirer, John Ortberg, Ann Voskamp, Liz Curtis Higgs, Timothy Keller, Eugene Peterson, Joni Eareckson Tada, and many more.

Poems for Mother's Day (more coming)

From Mommy With Love

Your world is small,
For now that's best.
I'll keep you safe,
Through life's first tests. Each fall to the floor,
And each skinned knee,
Beside you with love
Is where I'll be.
Your first school fight,
Your first heart break,
It's with my protection,
These steps you'll take.
But when your world begins to grow,
There's someone else that you should know.
He's helping me be what you need,
Until his love your heart can see.
There's nothing that his hands can't touch.
He holds you close when life's too much.
Just speak his name and he'll be there,
To show you just how much he cares.
Tonight I hold you in my arms.
With him I keep you safe from harm.
Listen as I say his name,
So you will know to do the same.
Thank you, Jesus, for so much,
For your strength, your care, your touch.
Keep us close so he can see,
The amazing love you still show me.
Amen.
--Tammy Dovichak
