Blog Hop Welcome

Welcome to the 1st John 3:16 Giveaway Blog Hop!

As one of the members of this great network of Christian Authors, I am excited to participate in this event! We have come together this week to showcase our books and to give you, our readers, a chance to win some great prizes as you "hop" from blog to blog. A different prize is offered at each blog site (no purchase necessary), however if you want to have a chance to win one of two Kindles the network is giving away, the only requirement is that you sign up for the John 3:16 ezine newsletter. (Located at the top right side column of the John 3:16 blog site.)

At the other blogs, each author will request that you leave a comment (and a valid email address) so they may contact you if you win a prize offered on their blog site.

May I also suggest that you show your love and appreciation to each blog host by either following them on Twitter, or "liking" them on Facebook or even subscribing to their blog. It won't help your odds of winning a prize but I know each author would be thrilled and very encouraged!

On this site you can win a set of books:
The Sassy Pants Series OR The Burden Bearing Series
Enter your name and working email in the comment box to enter a drawing for:
Sassy Pant and Sassy Pants Makes Amends are geared to grades 3-5 and deal with many of the issues children that age face. My hope is that it will open conversations between parents and children. If you would like to see more about the Sassy Pants Series go here:

The Mystery of Spiritual Sensitivity is for all those who wonder, "What was God thinking when He made me?" Many find this book gives voice and vocabulary to how the highly sensitive experience life, explains how burden bearing works, and provides strategies for healing from the hurts of sensitivey. And Highly Sensitive helps sensitive people make boundaries and guidelines to rein life in so it is more manageable.You will find more on these books here:
When the blog hop is over we will have a drawing. I will notify the winner and he or she may choose which set of books they want. I will ask for an address to send them to and send them off! It is that easy. So be sure to leave your name and a viable email address so I can contact you if you win.

Tell your friends about the John 3:16 Giveaway Blog Hop! It's going to be a great week of fun!
