A Great Book and a Giveaway

Books, GiveawayAmy Wiley1 Comment

A sure sign of a good book is when you feel compelled to drop everything, throw your to-do list out the window, and let your children fend for themselves for dinner so you can keep reading.  That was the case with Lincee Ray's Why I Hate Green Beans.  I could not put it down!

Not only do Lincee and I share a hatred of green beans and a deep affection for both Dr Pepper and Troy Aikman, but we both absolutely love television.  I first came across Lincee through her wildly popular recaps of The Bachelor franchise.  I'm thrilled to get to be on the launch team for her book which releases tomorrow.

She has a great sense of humor so I KNEW I would laugh.  I laughed a lot through this book.  What I didn't expect was to burst into tears as Lincee revealed deep hurts and struggles.   We all wrestle with insecurities, disappointments, and circumstances we wish we could change.  Lincee is so brave to share hers in a raw and genuine way.  What I loved most in the book is how she uses her faith to find her true identity and stability when life is unstable.  It was incredibly encouraging to me.  I know it will encourage you too.

Hurry, hurry and pre-order the book here.  If you order it today, you'll get the audio version for free!

I'm also giving away a copy of Why I Hate Green Beans to one lucky reader.  To enter, just leave a comment and tell me what food you detest.  The giveaway ends Wednesday at noon mountain time.

Happy reading!
