Mother's Day Book Giveaway and Review of "100 Days of Blessing"

MOTHER'S DAY GIVEAWAY!!


"100 DAYS OF BLESSING" BOOK REVIEW:

Have you ever discovered a treasure that was in your house, untouched, after 2 years?  That is exactly what I did about a month ago when I opened up the book, "100 Days of Blessings-Volume 2".  Wow!  What an inspiration this book has been!  Every chapter is filled with many Scriptures and nuggets of truth to help mothers remember what a noble calling is theirs.  Mrs. Campbell covers topics from "attitudes" to "training children to be royalty" to ""not ashamed" to "teaching our children to listen" and much, much more.  Every morning that I take the time to read another chapter in this book, I am edified, encouraged, strengthened, and reminded  that it is an honor to be a mother! I find that no matter what season of motherhood I am in, I need to fill my mind with truth to combat the humanistic, worldly teachings that are everywhere.  Books, movies, magazines, conversations, and media are many times filled with half truths and outright lies that do NOT agree with Scripture.  What a blessing it has been to read a book that not only agrees with the Bible but has many verses of Scripture throughout the book.   I still don't know why I didn't begin to read it 2 years ago when Nancy Campbell, the author, gave it to me after our concert in the large basement of their country home but I do know that I am very thankful that I found it and began to read it.So please head on over to Above Rubies to order your copy today.  Or you can enter our giveaway for the chance to win either Volume 1 or 2.

We are excited to partner with  in the giveaway of this life-changing book, 100 Days of Blessing, by wife, mother, grandmother, author, and legend, Nancy Campbell. This book will encourage all mothers to maintain a grateful perspective amidst the busyness and challenges of life and raising children.

VOLUME 1 or 2 of this book  could be yours for free! There's only one catch. You must be a mother or mother-to-be in order to enter the drawing. Right now, simply enter the following information in the comment box: What's your name? How many children do you have? What topic would you like to see addressed in the "mommies" series?

We will draw 2 winners on May 10.  Until then, you can go to Above Rubies to buy your own book.  If you're reading this post and you're not a Mother, consider giving this excellent book to your mother, aunt, wife, sister, cousin, pastor's wife, or friend (or any other mother who needs some encouragement) for Mother's Day.

Proverbs 31:28-31"Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.  Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates."

  2. Oh I just love Nancy Campbell! We haven't gone to a Family Camp in a number of years so I really miss talking with her. My friend who is 81 enjoys talking with Nancy and is always desiring to pass what she learns to younger wives and mothers.

  5. Name: Kristal
    Number of Children: 3
    Topic of Interest: I would love to hear about home discipleship (how did you bring your children to the Lord and foster a real heart towards Jesus). Homeschooling through high school (tips, how to select homeschool materials). Dealing with disobedience. Practical and effective ways to discipline. Ways you fostered family togetherness, especially when your oldest kids were all young. Sorry, so many questions!

    Thanks for the opportunity and contest!

  8. My name is Cheryl Smith, and after many years of infertility struggles and 12 1/2 years of marriage, God opened my barren womb and sent us one precious baby boy! He is such a dear blessing to our hearts and is now 17 years old. God is SO good! Something that it is very much overlooked when it comes to motherhood and the celebration of it is the fact that many sisters in Christ struggle with infertility and feel very alone and excluded on days like Mothers Day. It can be a very painful time of feeling left out, not that mothers intend hurt, but it is just something that is not on people's minds when they are easily able to have children. So, that would be my suggestion to maybe include hope and empathy for those hurting hearts and draw them in and make them feel included. Thanks for listening!

    1. Hi Mrs. Cheryl,

      In our church we have ladies who have struggled with infertility for 17+ years. Our single ladies always give these women gifts and flowers on mothers day. They are so thoughtful to them which make them feel special...we appreciate our single daughters for being so sweet and making these women feel loved. We call them "aunt"!

  13. My name is Rosalind Atkinson. I have been blessed with an 18 month old son and a 4 month old son. I would like to receive encouragement on how to be a patient mother. I'm the oldest of 14 children and my mother was not very patient and had a quick temper. I can get impatient with my little boy and I don't want him to see me act in the same way as my mother acted. I want him to know I love him and for him to respect me and love me. God bless y'all.

  17. Name: Anete
    Children: two kids (3 and 1 year old)
    Topics: how to teach work (living in an appartment), how do you choose GOOD books for kids - what are your criteria for them (english is not our first language, so I`d appreciate criteria more than an actual book list), lots of examples on how to discipline (what consequences have you chosen for what..), how do you use everyday situations to teach kids about God.

    Thanks for blogging!

  18. Greetings Mrs. Bontrager! My name is Kim. I have 6 children and a wonderful loving patient husband whom God graciously gave to me. I would first like to say thank you for your commitment to invest in the lives of other Christian families who desire to glorify God! I know we have yet to meet, but I am praying to meet you one day and your lovely family! I would love to learn more on how to delegate responsibilities to my daughters without it appearing/seeming to diminish my role as mother. Also topics on modesty, how to get my daughters to not want to dress like the girls in the world or the church. And for my sons to respect my authority without trying to lead me. Your family encourages me to keep the good fight of faith, none of my children are trusting Christ, but it appears the Lord is working in a few of them from their discussions and fruit that is being displayed. We read your children's blogs and find great encouragement, wisdom and virtue. It's tough out here when your family are all non-believers and not many Christian families who desire to grow in godliness TOGETHER! There are blessings to be found in having a computer! Thank you again for all you do for the Kingdom of God! And thank you for your generosity for the book.

    I'd like to see some scheduling tips and tricks. I used to have it altogether and after baby #5 that all changed!! Laundry is always behind, the house is behind, I'm behind on grading school. It's all behind. Lol. The kids have their jobs and do a fabulous job of helping me out, but these past two years have been chaos for mom! I know I'm prob the only one that feels that way. My kids are fine with it and my hubby is find with it, but mom is NOT! I need order!!

I would love to hear experience how you deal with different personalities, talents, giftings in each child, while still keeping the ground rules in the home, but allowing them to develop into their own person and calling God has for them. What you learnt maybe from children who are opposite in character than yourself etc........
