Two Scoops of Grace - Book Review and Giveaway!

When I first met Jeanette Levellie, I'd already known her for years. We first became friends after she commented on my post and then I commented on hers and then emails followed as kindred spirits knit together. Finally  last August, we met in person at the Philly Writers Conference. Smiles and hugs abounded. I'm so happy to announce that Jen's dream has come true. Her first book is published!

Now you can share with me the delight in reading Jen's words. Her warmth, wit, and wisdom radiate through these pages. Jen puts a comical and spiritual spin on stories and events from everyday life. You'll smile, sob, laugh, cry, and draw closer the One who scripts our lives.

Here's the official blurb about Jeanette, the book, and her awesome giveaway. The contests ends at midnight May 10, 2012:

About the Book
What do drive-by diaper stores and God have in common? When is blabbing an acceptable habit? Why should you beware of moths and sligs? In her entertaining, uplifting style, award-winning author and humorist Jeanette Levellie weaves 72 amusing stories with affirming Biblical truths. These soul-nourishing examples of God’s favor and grace will help you:

  • Laugh when you find cow patties in your field instead of daisies
  • Discover the bottomless heart of God
  • Grow in your acceptance of yourself and others

Welcome a vacation from stress as you discover the sweetness of Two Scoops of Grace with Chuckles on Top.

You can buy the book here.

Thanks for having me today, Susan! I must say, you are one of the most genuine, loving women of God I've met blogging, and I'm so thankful the Lord allowed us to meet in person. I'm SURE it was your prayers at the Philly conference last year that cliinched my publishing dream!

Please do enter the contests--very few have entered so far, so you have a great chance of winning!
