Meeting Teresa Tomeo & SIGNED BOOK GIVEAWAY!!

This giveaway is officially closed.  A great big thank you to all who participated!! 
Here are our WINNERS!!....
Kay Reike ~ "You Go, Girl!"
Kathleen ~ "Extreme Makeover"
Last weekend, I had the privilege of meeting renowned speaker and author, Teresa Tomeo, at a Catholic women's convention.  During the convention, she graciously shared with us her testimony and encouraged the women present to find the fullness of life by seeking and living a life in Christ. (You can read her extraordinary story in her book NEWSFLASH: My Surprising Journey From Secualr Anchor to Media Evangelist.)  

Teresa is a tremendous advocate for women ~ it is her great desire is to help them discover and embrace their identity, value and gifts as women as daughters of a King, not the objectified images that the media portrays a woman of value to be.

After hearing Teresa speak (her Italian spunk and humor captivated all of us!) I was compelled to read and share her books with you. In fact, I think they are so wonderful...
 I'm GIVING AWAY two SIGNED COPIES of them!!! 
The first one is:

Extreme Makeover is a powerful and passionately written book that awakens readers to the reality that the self-image of the American woman is being distorted by pop-culture and its emphasis on youth, physical beauty and sexuality. (Excerpt from the book description.).  A truly eye-opening work.  I highly recommend it to everyone!
Teresa's most recent publication. Wrapped Up would be a fantastic book study for a women's group, or   the perfect birthday, Christmas or Mother's Day gift!
I finished this book in one sitting.  The statistics are startling!! It is a must read for every parent!
Okay, you all know that I don't have a girl, but I couldn't resist sharing this one with all of you who have daughters! This is also the second book in the giveaway!!
