Giveaway: SEARCHING FOR SUNDAY: Loving, Leaving, and Finding the Chruch

Searching For SundayLoving, Leaving, and Finding the Church by The New York Times best seller author: Rachel Held Evans.

My thoughts:
I grew up in a very active Church family. Sometimes I thought my Dad had changed jobs and worked at the Church now since he was there so much. What was he doing there? Working on projects in the office of the church. A church has tons of paper work, budgets, meetings, and all kinds of legal stuff to take care of-that's what my dad was doing, in addition to his attorney work. My Mom purchased and arraigned the flowers for the church every Sunday, also weddings, special events, and fancy receptions, and the arrangements were amazing!

During Lent I think we were at church everyday-plus Sunday! Going to Church was part of our life-or is our life.

But then,,,my brother, sister and I went off to college and said hey, we don't have to go to Church anymore! We could make our own decision-sort off. My parents arranged to have a local family pick me up on Sunday and take me to church with them. Wait, what, I have to get up early on a Sunday???? I did, and I went to church with them, for a while. Then-I got the-I can do what I want phase.

About the book:
In this book-Searching For Sunday, the author takes us through her not going to church, all the hype, and politics of church, and it's just not the place for her, or is it? She leaves the church, but is drawn back. But what brings her back to the church? 

The book takes us through the seven sacraments of the church, and what it really means to be a member of a church. Are you a member of your church or do you just go there on Sunday. I've been a member of the same denomination since birth, not at the same church since birth due to moving. I've had different
levels of being a member as I have progressedthrough the sacraments from baptism through Matrimony.
The Seven Sacraments: A sacrament is a visible sign of your inward spiritual grace
Reconciliation of a Penitent

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products.

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it?

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
