Another giveaway: the book Wrestling with an Angel

Today I want to introduce you to someone named Greg Lucas who I've never "met", but have enjoyed learning from via his blog.  God graciously grafted 4 children into Greg's family through adoption, one of whom is severely disabled.  He also blessed Greg with the beautiful ability of seeing His grace in the midst of difficulties, and the giftedness to write about it in a way that encourages many readers to walk in that grace wherever God has us.  

To give you a taste of Greg's writing, you can find one of my favorite posts by him here.  But my guess is that you won't want to stop with that one.

Hot off the press in October was a book that he wrote from a compilation of his blog posts, and because I suspected it would be good, I ordered 3 copies.  One of those was for me (and let me tell you, I wasn't disappointed), one is for a friend, and one I'd like to offer to one of you in another giveaway.  The book's title is Wrestling with an Angel: A Story of Love, Disability and the Lessons of Grace

Here is how you enter:
1. Become a follower of this blog (if you are not already).
2. Tell me you'd like to be in the drawing (you can email me, FB me, or leave a comment below).
You're in. It is THAT easy!

To get your name in the bucket more than once, you can:
*  Facebook about it. For each DAY that you do it (and you let me know you did), you get an entry.
*  Blog about our giveaway (again, let me know that you did this).

We will aim to pick the winner on November 8th so you have one week folks.


  1. We always convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, have a baby, than another. Then we are frustrated that the kids are not old enough and well be more content when they are. After that were frustrated that we have teenagers to deal with. We will certainly be happy when they are out of that stage. We always tell ourselves that our life will be complete when our spouse gets his or her act together. When we get a nice a car, and are able to go on a nice vocation when we retire. The truth is, there's no better time than right now. if not now, when? Our life will always be filled with challenges. It's best to admit this to ourselves and decide to be happy anyway.
