Son of God GiveAway Results!

Thank you to everyone who participated in this Son of God Giveaway, sponsored by Grace Hill Media. I hope it was fun and I appreciate those of you who tweeted the blog or pinned it. And of course, I always love to get comments, so thank you also for commenting.

The movie comes out today, so go see it. 🙂

I’m not real high-tech over here, so I wrote each of the commenter’s names from the post on slips of paper and put them in a container and had my wonderful husband pull a name out.

The winner is Maryann! Congratulations!

Here is a picture of what you’ll be getting:

CD and Novel plus a 1000 piece puzzle

Maryann, I will be contacting you via e-mail to obtain an address where Grace Hill Media can send the this.

Thanks again to everyone for participating!


Son of God — GiveAway!!

I’m hosting a “Son of God” GiveAway for Grace Hill Media. I know, not quite what you’re expecting here on the ol’ Endless Strength Blog.

The movie, “Son of God,” hits theaters Friday and to accompany it and to support it, I am having a giveaway. Some of you may have watched the award-winning miniseries, “The Bible.” The producers of that miniseries, Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, have produced this film to be released February 28.

I’m a “Jesus Movie Junkie” (my own term…at least I don’t know of anyone else who might have used it). When I was a kid, after the first time I saw the movie, “Jesus of Nazereth” I watched it over and over every chance I could get. I did the same with “The Ten Commandments.” I just love the movies. When “the Passion of The Christ” came out in 2003, Craig and I got a babysitter to go see it. I was pregnant with Dani at the time and we didn’t get a sitter all that often. As a matter of fact, that is the only movie I saw in the theater for the span of most of that decade! I also got it on DVD and I usually watch it during Lent each year. I think last year I did not watch it, but was going through my own turmoil while grieving our baby, Gregory.

So, being a “Jesus Movie Junkie,” when I first saw the trailer this past holiday season when I took my oldest two to see “Saving Mr. Banks” I knew I’d have to try and see the movie in the theater when it came out. Then, when Grace Hill Media approached me about doing a Giveaway, I knew I’d do it because…right that whole Junkie bit. 🙂 The trailer makes the movie look well done and the miniseries received rave reviews. I look forward to seeing the movie!

On to the details of the Giveaway…

In honor of the film’s release, Grace Hill Media will provide a winner from my blog a Giveaway package that will include: 

  • A copy of the Son of God soundtrack
  • The “Son of God” companion novel
  • A 1000 piece puzzle — fun for the whole family!

I am attaching a trailer for the movie for your viewing pleasure.

In the Hunt…for a New Look

When I started this blog up, it was my 2nd go at it.  While I think I understand a little bit better what I want to do with the content of my blog, I still have no clue how to design a “pretty blog”.
And let’s face it…I don’t have time to figure it out, either.  So, I’m blogging about Rebecca’s giveaway in an attempt to win a blog makeover.  🙂
Rebecca, my lovely West Virginia blog-buddy, is hosting a giveaway at her blog.  She just got an AMAZING new look for her blog from Kelsey.  
I spent some time at Kelsey’s blog and was impressed.  How does someone figure out how to do all that stuff!?!?  A gift…that is what Kelsey has.
Rebecca’s giveaway doesn’t stop with a blog makeover.  She is also giving away a photo from Kimi.  Some of these photos are amazing!  I love the simplicity and elegance in the same photo that I see in so many of them.  Kimi supplied the background photo for Rebecca’s new look on her blog.
How are you feeling about your blog look these days?  Actually, I see all of yours and I work hard to keep my jealousy in check.  You all have some beautiful blogs.  But if you’re interested in a new look for your blog, head over to The Road Home.
You’re in for a treat if you do.  Not only is Rebecca’s blog beautiful to look at, but she’s a rabid WVU Mountaineers fan…especially during football season.  She is a Catholic who has grown much in her faith in the past few years and embraced NFP in her marriage to The Man and has begun to see the blessings that flow.  She has beautiful dogs and lives in a beautiful part of the country (I was just there and saw it for myself 🙂  )

Have a terrific day!
