Who likes a give away????

I decided to get in on the give aways! I wanted to do one of my own. I found this nugget of a book that I have read and studied. The book is called "Homeschooling with a Meek and Quiet Spirit" by Teri Maxwell.

Here is a description of the book from the back cover.

A desire of a homeschooling mother's heart is to have a meek and quiet spirit instead of discouragement, fear, and anger. She can cope with the myriad of daily difficulties and decisions that a homeschooling lifestyle brings with it, as long as she is having the right responses to them. Let her be fearful, worried, anxious, frustrated, irritated, or angry and a mom soon realizes she is undermining all she wants to accomplish by homeschooling.
Because Teri Maxwell, a mother of eight, has walked the homeschooling path since 1985, she knows first-hand the struggle for a meek and quiet spirit. The memories from her early homeschooling years of often being worried and angry rather than having a meek and quiet spirit are not what she would like them to be.
Homeschooling with a Meek and Quiet Spirit includes Teri sharing the work the Lord has done in her heart through homeschooling. Other homeschooling moms will be encouraged that He can do the same for them. Teri also desires that homeschooling mothers could learn from the lessons the Lord has taught her so that they would begin to have a meek and quiet spirit long before she did.
Will the reader's journey toward a meek and quiet spirit be completed upon finding the perfect spelling curriculum or deciding which chores a child should be doing? Or does the answer lie on a different path? In these pages, Teri offers practical insights into gaining a meek and quiet spirit, along with chapter-by-chapter projects, that any mom can apply to her individual circumstances. She transparently shares the struggles God has brought her through and what He has shown her during these many homeschooling years



So here is how it works. Please leave a comment stating your desire to be included in this give away. I only have one, so on Thursday April 10th at 8pm EST, I will put all the names of those who have commented in a box and pull out a name. The only thing I ask is that you do not include your name if you already have the book. This is to be a blessing to someone not to give away for resale. ;)

Ok so if you want the book...leave me a comment. Please make sure that you have a blog and link to it in the comment section....unless I know you personally....I would hate to not include you because I couldn't find out who you are.
