GIVEAWAY!!! – Wise Words For Moms and Reaching The Heart Of Your Child

by bosssanders on September 26, 2013 with 22 comments

I am SUPER excited about this giveaway!!

As most of you know, Wise Words For Moms and Reaching The Heart Of Your Child are two of my favorite resources (see HERE and HERE).

WELL, Ginger has graciously agreed to do a giveaway for these on!  How fun!!

For those of you not familiar with these great resources, let me catch you up:

Wise Words for Moms (and dads!) by Ginger Plowman.  I really really like her teaching on parenting and disciplining kids.  Her flip-book is GREAT for a quick-glance on how to get to the heart of issues.  She lists out different topics (whining, disobeying, etc) and then gives heart-probing questions, scripture to explore with your kiddos on why it’s something we don’t do and then examples to help build them back up.  It’s easy to treat the surface issue, but this is great for tackling the heart issue by using motivation rather than fear of punishment.

In her audio cd set, Reaching The Heart Of Your Child, Ginger Plowman takes the Wise Words For Moms booklet and really breaks it down.  She gives GREAT insight on how to effectively teach your children from the core, not just teaching them not to (insert thing here).  For example, she teaches us how to teach our kids about KINDNESS or RESPECT… not just “don’t hit,” “don’t kick,” don’t throw a marshmallow at Lucy’s head,” etc.  If we simply focus on the outward behaviors, our very creative children will consistently come up with new ones.  However, if we arm them with deep lessons and scripture, they will eventually be able to catch themselves in the act and be able to stop themselves AND take these lessons into adulthood.  Ginger takes time to explain WHY we must speak to our kids’ hearts instead of simply using physical consequences (time-outs/ins, taking toys away, swats) alone.

Ready For The Details?

This giveaway is for one gift set of a Wise Words For Mom flip book and Reaching The Heart Of Your Child CD set.

I’m super excited to make an announcement this morning – in fact, I’m SO excited that I actually got up at 7am this morning which should really mean something because that never happens. Ever. Whole Foods Market has just released the beginning of their series of podcasts this month, and their focus?

Pregnancy and Baby (oh, heck yes!)

From now until March 30th, they’re offering MY READERS an incentive to listen and provide feedback to their Whole Baby Podcasts covering: Natural Baby Body Care, Pregnancy – A Time to Go Natural, and Organics for Baby, Beyond Food.


So, why am I so excited? Because I have recently teamed up with them to offer one awesome reader (because you are all so awesome) a bag full of goodies just for participating!

The Prize

The “Deluxe Urban Sling” is made with 100% post-consumer recycled materials- “yesterday’s discarded water bottles and yogurt containers”. It comes loaded with natural products for new babies, and families.

MPORTANT: Do NOT leave your podcast feedback here: you have to comment at the Whole Baby Website on the podcast you listened to.

So, what are you waiting for? Go win!!
(Not pregnant? You should go anyways, I’m sure you know SOMEBODY who’s pregnant, right…right? *stares at you with intense focus, waiting for you to remember that she is pregnant* )

$100 Give Away

by bosssanders on January 5, 2009 with 6 comments


This giveaway is sponsored, and unlike my other giveaways, anyone who meets the criteria for this giveaway automatically “wins” $100.

A few months ago, my husband and I had new windows put in our home by a company called Windows USA – I could tell you how awesome they are and how much I love them and what I love about them, but I won’t (unless you ask me to, of course) as I’m not in the business of selling windows.

However, Windows USA has this awesome affiliate program where their customers can refer their products to other consumers – and, instead of paying for extensive advertising, Windows USA pays both the referrer (ME) and the prospective consumer (YOU) just for listening to their one-hour window presentation.

So, get that?  $100 to simply LISTEN to a presentation about windows and with NO STRINGS ATTACHED.  Meaning after your one hour presentation, you can collect your money and simply walk away – windows or not.

To get in on this, just leave me a comment letting me know you’re interested and I’ll contact you and get you signed up – but, first you need to make sure you’re eligible:

-You MUST live in the United States
-You MUST own your own home

So, what would you do with an extra one-hundred dollars?

I have 2 great books to give away from the Chicken Soup for the Soul Series:  Moms and Sons and Like Mother, Like Daughter


I love reading Chicken Soup for the Soul books, and always find their stories to be inspirational and great.  I thought it would be great to share with you two great titles, written especially for mom!

To win, simply leave a comment telling me which book you’d like and why!  It’s that easy!  (Be sure I have a way to reach you, though.  I won’t play detective if it’s not obvious and will draw a new winner).
