A Winner!! And Another Give-Away!!

The winner of Renee Swope’s book, A Confident Heart, is……..

Holly Hannum!!

I am always so excited to announce the winner, but I wish I had enough copies of the book to send you each one! You know I would if I could!

Holly, please send me your mailing address when you can. Congratulations! I hope this book helps you live with the confidence that comes from knowing without a doubt that you are a daughter of the King!

I pray that all of you are learning to walk with this kind of confidence as you draw closer to Him every day!

I thought that since I wasn’t able to give everyone a copy of Renee’s book, it would be a great time to give away another book!

When I think of the pain and loss that has consumed so many years of my life, knowing that God is going to use it to help others strengthens me deep inside..

I’ve clung to (and still do) the verse that says that those “who sow in tears will reap songs of joy!”

I’ve told God so many times as I have cried that I will keep sowing for Him because of this promise and because I love Him and trust Him even when I do not understand His ways.

When I arrived home from school on Thursday, I found a box on my kitchen table!

In the box I found my writer’s copies of Chicken Soup for the Soul Stories for Tough Times!

(I have a devotional in this edition.)



Please leave a comment below to be entered in this week’s drawing for

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Stories for Tough Times.

A winner will be announced next Sunday evening!! Smile

I love you all and pray that God will give you songs of joy even as you sow in tears,

  3. Tammy, That is so wounderful!!! If I don’t win it I will go and buy it!!! I want you to sign it for me!!! Love you so much!!!

  4. Nice job! I sure could use a devo book about tough times…been going through them with my daughter now for abut a year. We need healing and forgiveness.

  5. How wonderful to be published. Is this new for you or have you had works published before. I have a young friend who is trying to get into Christian fiction over here. She is finding it very hard. Not hard to write. It hard to push her novels and sell them to publishers. I think she is trying to find an agent to do pr workmformher.

  6. Tammy….don’t know if you remember, but I do, this is not your first to be published. I remember a Heart Tug a few years back that you had written! (wish I still had it)!
    I would love to have this copy!

  7. This is so cool!! I can’t wait to get a copy of this book to read your chapter. I love all the Chicken Soup books because they seem to comfort me exactly when I need it the most! Congratulations!!
