Book Giveaway: THE COLSON WAY. read about politics, religion, and loving your neighbor.

I'm not much of a follower of politics, so when I began to read the book, THE COLSON WAY, I thought I'd be skimming the pages to get through the book.
I had the impression it was going to be about Watergate. 
It's not about politics, it's about neighbors.
It's about how you and I can engage with each other in real life, not on social media, not on a key board, but with enlarging our territory.

The beginning of the book lets us find out about Chuck Colson, his meager beginnings, his hard work to gain his acceptance into two ivy league schools, his his career, and his family.

During his "climbing of the ladder" to become the right hand man for President Nixon, his family life suffers, he becomes divorced. He realizes the hardship of the  divorce has caused and how he neglected his family in spending time with them.

So now the intro is pretty much over, the reader learns Chuck Colson is sent to prison for his involvement in President Nixon's staged break in with the "plumbers" to actually set "bugs" to record office goings on.

While in prison Chuck works in the laundry room, keeps to himself, and during his prison sentence he learns the state of Virginia has disbarred him, his father passed away, and his family had legal trouble. 
God sent him to prison or maybe God called him to prison. 

He was released months before he had served his minimum time, but during that time he was developing his own path, the conversion path. Book writing began, Prison Ministry began.

My thoughts: 
I did not know of this person, Chuck Colson, nor did I know of his ministry. This book shares his conversion of a high powered man of politics to a highly regarded person of prison ministry and fellowship.  You will meet those who were his friends, work partners, and neighbors. The origin of the Angel Tree too, does your church sponsor an Angel Tree?

Why should we help a neighbor, not necessarily the person next door, but the person next to you, near you. Don't be proud and look away.
Help them in their need.

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.

Win an Ultimate prize pack from Betty Crocker Ultimate Meals and Mixes

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? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook. I made Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara.

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,
