Giveaway Day 4


Today's book is Sisterchicks Go Brit! by Robin Jones Gunn, from Multnomah Publishers.

SISTERCHICK® n: a friend who shares the deepest wonders of your heart, loves you like a sister, and provides a reality check when you’re being a brat.

Two midlife mamas hop over to jolly ole England and encounter so much more than the usual tourist stops. Liz does have a bit of a childhood crush on Big Ben, and she has hoped to “meet” him ever since her fifteenth birthday. Kellie dreams of starting an interior design business and figures Liz needs to be a part of that equation–a calculation that hasn’t added up for Liz yet.

Nothing on the excursion goes the way these two friends had envisioned. They start with a village pancake race and end up being held for questioning on The Underground. Kellie and Liz take a wild tour through the land of C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien and then find themselves swept up, up, and away in a hot air balloon over the Cotswalds. London beckons with the Tower of London, Windsor Castle, shopping at Portabella Road in Knotting Hill, and of course, reservations at the Ritz for a posh high tea.

A few detours along the way and the possibility of being lost in a London fog of wonderment aren’t enough to stop these two Sisterchicks! Each step of their regal journey is lined with evidence of God’s gracious compassion, and both come to realize that God knows their every wish. He is the One who planted every dream in their hearts.

And, oh, what a surprise awaits them when they return home!

My favorite thing to do with friends is work together for a common cause. We get the extra blessing of fellowship, and the work seems to be much lighter because of the fun stories and laughter we share. I can't wait to enter this contest because this is one of my favorite Boomer-Lit series! Write me at one of these two addresses: WillisWay at aol dot com or kcwcomm at rgv dot rr dot com.

My favorite thing to do with a friend is a one on one Bible study in the middle of a resteraunt. It's amazing hoe many oppurtunities you get to share Christ. And, we never mind eavesdroppers. Enter me in the contest I did student teaching in England so this would be a good one for me. spowell01(at)bellsouth.net

I love the Sisterchicks series, and this sounds like another great one.

As a stay-at-home mom/pastor's wife in a very tiny church, my favorite thing to do with a friend is just to talk! Doesn't sound like much, but when you don't have anyone to talk to, a good chat is a great time!

I'll be honest with you. Gab, pure and simple. This sharing of life's ups and downs is pure catharsis!

I love getting together with others who love to paint and do the walls, inside or out, of a room or a building. It is way more fun with someone close by to visit with as the roller cuts out the old paint and shines with the new. I don't have a blog to post on but I've been caught up in the fun of the day by day contests and have looked forward to each one.

My favorite thing to do with friends is to spend time together fellowshiping. No matter where it is. Usally there is always good food. But most importantly there is alot of Laughter. I love making people laugh and laughing myself. This was a favorite pass time I had with my father when I was younger and now that he is so far away in the caribbean, getting the oppertunity to do with other people I care about is great. Please enter me in your drawing. Thanks TK. vcw1476(at)gmail(dot)com

Oh, another favorite book series of mine. I love the Sisterchicks. A favorite thing I like to do with my friends is have a ladies night out just relaxing without kids, not that they're not fun, but sometimes it's nice to have a mom's night out.

I like spending time with friends one on one or maybe three of us at a time and just have "quality time" together talking, sharing about a good book, watching a movie...

I love to go for walks with a good friend! Hiking through the mountains, or a path around a lake, or walking in the neighborhood.

My absolute, most favorite thing in the world to do with a friend or two is to...discuss a book. I am amazed how much I can get to know her deep inside her heart by listening to her share her personal thoughts, ideas, and insights the book triggered. It is an amazing experience to share with a friend. And if you haven't done it, I strongly encourage you to give it a try. I assure you; you will be hooked!

My favorite thing to do with my friends is meeting at a coffee shop and discussing Christian fiction books. I have the best time visiting, drinking my favorite coffee drink, and being inspired by my friends. We've discussed many of the Sisterchicks books. Laura

This sounds so fun! Can I go to England with my friends?!? Realistically, we do a lot of playdates. We stand and talk in the yard while the kiddos run and play all around us. If we do get out with the kids, I like to just go get a coffee or coke and visit for awhile. No better therapy than a good visit with some girl friends!
