A Little Something for YOU!

Today I am super pumped! (Can you tell I was a cheerleader in high school? What's wrong with me?) Anyway...

I really am super pumped though. A sweet friend of mine is giving one of YOU something really cool. Something that could be great for the holidays, or really for any day. And it is a bonus that this lady is extremely genuine, incredibly funny, and has a faithful, sweet relationship with Jesus. 

Meet Megan:

Megan, who blogs at Happy the Home, was one of my roommates at the Influence Conference earlier this year. Several months before the conference, Megan and I connected over having similar birth stories with our sons. We exchanged a few emails, and a friendship blossomed! I never would have though that an email about something you wrote on your blog would produce a genuine friendship, but God works in funny ways, doesn't He? We connected over the fact that our sons were born only 2 months apart, their birth stories truly are strangely similar, our sons & husbands have the same middle names...the list goes on :)

I love Megan for more than just our similarities though; Megan is compassionate, funny, and so servant-hearted. We spent most of our time at the Influence Conference either crying together or laughing hysterically. After just a few days of spending time together, I now consider her a close friend. I continually learn from her heart for people, her faithfulness to her husband and son, and the true wisdom that God has given to her. I implore you to visit her blog. And not just to visit - but to get to know her, and to learn from her. She will bless you!

Today Megan is generously giving away something special to one of my readers!

Amazon is the best. You can buy virtually anything! This e-gift card could be a great thing to have during the holiday season. You could by something for someone else...or for yourself too :)
