UPDATE–Untie Your Story Giveaway!

Spring 2015 photo shoot for Everthine Home

Good morning! My daughter and her friends have the most lovely tradition for birthday dinners: everyone goes around the table and asks an intentional question to the “birthday girl” to facilitate meaningful reflection from the last year of her life but also to dream about the new year. I loved this idea and thought more women should do this! SO we created a second edition of “Untie Your Story: Friends” which is a cute little tin with 12 questions and is now available for only $13!

But since God loves to surprise us and we love to give things away around here, we are excited to be offering one of the tins as a giveaway with a few easy steps.

First Step: Go here and follow the easy steps for your official entry!

Second Step: Comment here with 3 surprises from the last year. (It can be anything big or small!)

Last Step: Check back here on Monday to see if you won!

CONGRATULATIONS to Laura Carter! We hope these questions will encourage you and your friends!

  5. A broken leg revealed many blessings and a discovery of how God uses struggles for good.
    1- a new appreciation by my husband for my role at home
    2- a closer bond between my kids and parents who have been helping out
    3- time for rest and reflection for mom. Yay!

      I agree with your sentiment that “God uses struggle for our good.” My father in-law passed away January 3, 2014 and through the pain it brought me much closer to my mother in law (formerly a strained relationship) and our church family. I miss him every day, but his passing has made us so much stronger. He would be pleased.

  6. 1. We have a new daughter, Emma Grace. She was born in August 2014.

    2. My husband found out that his company will pay for him to go back to school, so he will get a huge promotion in a couple of years.

    3. My favorite band, who broke up 10 years ago, just announced a reunion tour! I’m so excited to finally be able to see them live again.
