HURRY! Lucinda Secrest McDowell’s “Dwelling Places” Blog Tour and Giveaway ENDS TODAY

HURRY! I GOOFED, BUT YOU CAN STILL BENEFIT.

Dwelling Places: Words to Live in Every Season by Lucinda Secrest McDowell
I can’t believe I did it, but I did.

Lucinda Secrest McDowell, a great author, not to mention incredible person, is celebrating the release of her new book with a fabulous giveaway.

I thought the giveaway ended in August — not today! OOPS!

But there’s still time. Barely, but still time.

Lucinda’s devotional is divided into four seasons, and while the weather outside clearly screams summer now, I’m loving the Advent section so much I can’t stop reading it. And it’s not because I’m longing for a little of the coolness of Christmas.

The Advent section is filled with powerful messages that are suited for reflecting on Christ’s birth but speak to us just as well year round. 

Reflected in one word, Lucinda’s thought-provoking devotion helps us dwell on the Father’s heart all day. 

She closes each devotion with a beautiful message as if written by God to us. I think it may be my favorite part! 

Read more about her book Dwelling Places below and then enter to win one of the great prizes, but ENTER TODAY.

NOW would be even better!

Dwelling Places

Drown out the busyness and noise of everyday life and find a deeper faith with something as simple as a single word in Lucinda Secrest McDowell’s new book, Dwelling Places. 

Through short and inspiring readings, McDowell unpacks a single word—such as mercy, beauty, gratitude, or grace—to reveal a biblical blessing or challenge relevant to where you are.

Full of stories and illustrations to empower you to live the word you have just read, each devotional ends with a benediction, written as if God were speaking directly to you.

It’s Summer Reading Time! Load Up On Great Books

Five Free books for Summer Reading with the purchase of Hungry for God, Starving for Time Summer Book Promo. Check it out!

I get more reading done on vacation than any other time.

I’ve discovered some of my favorite authors while reading on the beach in summer or next to a fire in winter.

I’m sharing some of my favorites over the next three months, starting with this one:

Hungry for God, Starving for Time by Lori Hatcher

Let me paint the perfect summer scene.

The sun has risen over the ocean, lake, or grandma’s home — wherever your family likes to vacation in summer.

You’re nestled into a comfy chair with a fresh cup of coffee (it’s never too hot for coffee, especially with a gentle morning breeze), your Bible (best book ever), and a great devotional.

Your day if off to a perfect start.

I did this recently at Middleton Place Inn on the Ashely River outside of Charelston, SC. I’m still floating from this peaceful memory.

One of my favorite devotionals is Hungry for God, Starving for Time by Lori Hatcher.

I’m on about my 10th copy now. I’ve given most of them as gifts, but my personal, author-signed copy went rogue, as much-loved books tend to do because I carry them around too much.

I’m not complaining though, because with this latest copy, I also got five free Kindle books, and I’m a huge Kindle fan. (With my Kindle, I’m never bored in a waiting room or long line. I’m always deep into a good book.)

I’m now loaded up for my Summer Reading.

Look at what I got with my latest copy of Hungry for God, Starving for Time:

• Praying for the Prodigal, a non-fiction book by Andrea Merrell

• Running from a Crazy Man (and Other Adventures Traveling with Jesus), a devotional by Lori Roeleveld

 Fear is Louder than Words, a novel by Linda Glaz

 Come Empty, Pour Out Life’s Hurts and Receive God’s Healing Love, a non-fiction book by Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith

 Chasing the Butterfly, a novel by Jayme Mansfield

I’ve already read Praying for the Prodigal and Running from a Crazy Man. I loved both of these books. Excellent!

I can’t wait to dive into the other three. I’ve got a beach trip coming up soon.

If you want to take advantage of this great offer, too, I’ll let Lori explain how to get your own copy of Hungry for God, Starving for Time, plus the 5 free books.
