Big Mama Has Some Prizes

Hey everybody –

I’m still in Mississippi, but I wanted to let you know that Melanie is giving away three copies of Home is Where My People Are on her blog. The giveaway closes at 5pm central today (Monday), so I wanted to pass along the info in the hopes that a few of you have a chance to click over and enter to win.

Also, thanks so much for your sweet blog and Instagram comments (and emails) about these last few days. We appreciate your kind words and your prayers more than you know. I’ll update y’all as soon as I know it’s the right time. But in the meantime, I keep thinking about this song.

Hope you’re having a great Monday!

    Thank you for this book. I have left a comment on BigMama in hopes of winning but if not, I’m still buying for myself and all my “Saudi Sisters”. This book is so appropriate for where we find ourselves. We are women from mostly Texas but all over the US and even other parts of the world that have ended up in Saudi Arabia due to our husbands jobs. We are expats living on a compound and trying to make the best of life outside the US. I have been here for 5 years and in that time have become close to women that i have had to say goodbye to over and over again. As my repatriate date grows closer, I’m reminded of all the beautiful, smart and talented women that have touched my life over the past 5 years. I know that God has each of us here for a reason if nothing more than to support and lift each other up as we travel down this crazy unfamiliar road of living amongst so many restrictions and with out a Target or Hobby Lobby. I know what it’s like to not only move but to move to another part of the world where life is totally different. It’s exciting and scary at the same time. I know for a fact that I could not have made it this long without all the wonderful women that live here on this “fishbowl” that we call a compound. The people I live around have made this place my home and I’m thankful for them daily.

  2. OH THAT SONG!!! Always has stayed in my top 10 of worship songs. That Christy!

    Praying for you friend!
