Time for some giveaways: 2 Books

I know it's been forever since I gave away any books so I'm ready to give a couple away.

Book 1 is I'm Not Crazy, but i might be a carrier by Charles Marshall. You can check out the FIRST chapter & my review here:

Charles Marshall began his career onstage as a singer/songwriter. When his singing voice gave out, he turned to stand-up comedy and was much more successful. He is now a nationally syndicated Christian humor columnist and has contributed to Focus on the Family magazine. He is the author of Shattering the Glass Slipper: Destroying Fairy Tale Thinking Before It Destroys You and has filmed two stand-up comedy videos, I'm Just Sayin' and Fully Animated.

Book 2 is Losing Control & Liking It by Tim Sanford. This is a great resource for people who have teens, preadolescent kids, and kids who might be having a hard time making good choices. I jsut reviewed this book on Jan 8th so you can click on the link below to read the first chapter and see my review.

If you have ever done the Growing Kids God's Way series, you will see some similarities throughout this book. It's not a big book and it's not overwhelming with information. It's a great resource.

So, how do you win these two books? Leave me a post letting me know if you "might be a carrier" of craziness OR if you have issues with letting go, especially with your children.
Leave me your email so I can contact you if you win. Please make it so we don't have to deal with spammers: mnjesusfreak at gmail dot com (or something similar). Without the email, there's no entry, sorry. Please, US residents only. I will draw a name on Jan 23, later in the evening since I work. I will contact the winner and also leave a notice at the top of my blog. Thanks for visiting!

I confess. I might be a carrier. Some might call it craziness I pass on to others, but I like to think of it as helping them find an escape from reality! I'd love to win this book! The other sounds great as well. If I win, e-mail me at: WillisWay (at) aol (dot) com. Thanks!

I am definitely a carrier, but I've always heard it takes one to know one - so I must be crazy! Great giveaway, thanks.

Certainly looks like we have a lot of carriers visiting the blog! I have to admit I am a bit on the nutty side. :}

I also should state that I'm having a hard time letting go. My oldest child will graduate this year and will be 18 in the summer. How to transition from being in mom-mode to adult to adult will be a very tough task for me, even tho it's been moving that way as it is. Praying God will help me, because I know Brie will do just fine. She knows I'm a wreck w/ her graduating. She's my 1st baby!
