A Sign That You’re Home (A Giveaway)


About three years ago I wanted to add something special to our house – something that would commemorate signing a contract for my first book – so I ordered a personalized wooden sign from Tara and Andy at the Between You & Me Sign Shop. I picked my favorite quote from The Lion, The Witch, & The Wardrobe, and I was thrilled to pieces when the sign arrived a couple of weeks later.

These are the pictures I posted back in 2012, but the sign is in the same spot – and I still love it just as much.

(I know that last picture is super blurry, but you get the idea.)

Then, a couple of years later, book two happened. And when I finished writing Home is Where My People Are and started talking to the folks at Tyndale about what might be a fun book release giveaway, that sign in my living room immediately came to mind. I mean, obviously I’m not giving away my sign, but I thought y’all might enjoy the chance to win a personalized wooden sign of your own. There’s just something so tender and sweet about words that settle way down deep in your heart, whether those words come from a book, from Scripture, or from a favorite family saying.

So the folks at Tyndale got in touch with Tara and Andy from Between You & Me, and together they’ve come up with a mighty fine giveaway. They’re giving away a 2 foot by 2 foot personalized wooden sign from Between You & Me Sign Shop, and I’m already so happy for whoever wins. That’s a big ole sign, you know?


The sign in the previous picture is one of their best sellers, by the way.

I’m also a little partial to this one.


Isn’t that great?

ANYWAY, if you enter this giveaway, you have a chance to win the 2 x 2 sign of your choice, and you can customize it with something you see in the Between You & Me shop OR something that you choose on your own.


There will also be 10 runners-up who will receive a free copy of Home is Where My People Are.

And if you don’t win but you’d still love to buy a personalized sign for your house, you can get 15% off your Between You & Me Sign Shop order by using the code BOOMAMA15.
