  9. Congrats on your wonderful new release. I can only imagine how exciting that would be. I have authored a few books, also, but only for educational purposes, boring...
    I wish you lots of success and know I would love to read this!

    1. Now THAT is a real challenge--writing books for educational purposes and trying NOT to make them sound boring. ;)
      Good luck in the contest!

    1. Sorry--my iPad keeps getting stuck. :-(. I was going to say, I don't need to win these books, but it would be fun to win the Yankee Marmalade. Or if it goes with a book, I could have you send the book to my mother's Kindle--she would enjoy that...
      Vicki
      PS--I guess 3times is a charm. ;-)

    2. Thanks so much Vicki! We'll enter you for both! The Yankee Marmalade is delicious!

  17. So much to celebrate it seems! I made a banner but I see no way to add it here... only comments, but God's blessings and favor on your new release, Marian! And Anniversary's are so special, they mark the time that says, 'This is important to me!' I'm so glad that you Carrie, and you Kathleen, count Overcoming With God important enough to stick with because OWG blesses so many people. It's definitely a ministry tool God has placed in your hands to further His Kingdom in the world. Love and Hugs and Blessings. I'll send you all that banner on your FB pages :)
