Two Years: A Celebration & Giveaway

When I look back at those first few posts, I have to stop and laugh a little. Yes, two years ago today, I took off on a crazy journey and started blogging about it here. Almost 200 posts later, and what a ride it has been! To hear more about my adventures, click here.

You’ll see a few changes as I press into year three. Most significantly, I am beyond thrilled to debut a resource page: For the Road. You can find it in the menu above. For the Road is a list of supplies you may very well need as you join me in the journey. Rather than the monthly promotional post, this growing supply list will provide easy access to the best art, songs, videos, websites, and more – designed to spur you on your way!

And now, in celebration of two years on the journey, I’m giving away a few supplies “for the road”:

  1. One paperback copy of The Well-Versed Family – This one-of-a-kind resource makes Bible memory doable – with proven memory tips and tools, engaging games and activities, quick family demos, 90 memory verse cards, and more!
    [Please note: This giveaway will be shipped to residents in the U.S. only]
    Congrats to Suzanna, winner of The Well-Versed Family!
  2. Two copies {two different winners} of the brand new Seeds of Christmas album {your choice of CD or digital} from Seeds Family Worship – Modern and relevant word-for-word Scripture songs and resources for families.
    [Please note: CD copies will be shipped to residents in the U.S. only]
    Congrats to Katrina and Laura Anne, winners of Seeds of Christmas!
  3. One print of your choice {“instant download” selections only} from MercyINK – Scripture-inspired art for the home.
    Congrats to Meagan, winner of a MercyINK design!

How to enter the giveaway?

  1. I’d choose the Seeds Christmas CD – we have the others and LOVE them! Just a plug for the Well Versed Family – I purchased it last year, and it is chock full of easy, implementable ideas for using Scripture in daily family scenarios. Highly recommended 🙂

    1. Congrats, Katrina! You are the winner of your very own copy of “Seeds of Christmas”! You should receive an email within the next 24 hours with details on how you can receive your gift! Thanks for joining the celebration!


  2. I’d like to win Seeds of Christmas! Would it count if I share your blog to a group of friends by email? Nobody reads my blog because I no longer update it and I don’t currently have facebook.


    1. Congrats, Laura! You are the winner of your very own copy of “Seeds of Christmas”! You should receive an email within the next 24 hours with details on how you can receive your gift! Thanks for joining the celebration!


  3. Hi Lydia, congrats on you 2 year anniversary…no worries about entrying me for the contest. I am in Africa. But just dropped by to say Hi.
    And about the note on my blog, the one about losing track of what is going on, I am in the same boat too. Sometimes I lose track of what friends are posting on their blogs coupled with offline activities.*smiling back friend*
    Congrats once again

    1. Yes, ’cause we already talked about this article, and you featured it on your blog, I think? Now I remember! I saw your post on a linkup, and I thought, “Connection!” Then I thought, “Wait a minute – I have talked to this girl!” 🙂 Haha, thanks for your patience, friend. And if you want the art design, you can totally enter for that one because it comes via email. 🙂

      1. I get it! But it is a miniseries though, the latest ones are the article you just read “7 Tips for effective evangelism” and I think you are yet to read this “When evangelism doesn’t go as planned”.
        I meant to ask you ….. can you share a field experience, you will never forget. If you have the time to, I would like to share it with my readers. If you can’t no worries friend.


        1. I would love to! How sweet of you to ask! Give me more details, please! You said an evangelism experience that stands out? Does it need to be in full blog post form, with title and all, or just a paragraph or two? And when do you need it?


  4. 200 posts in 2 years! What an accomplishment! Thanks for all you do to encourage Scripture memory and focus throughout daily life!

    Shared the giveaway with my friends on Facebook. 😀

  5. Also shared your article on distractions. With distractions everywhere my prayer is that God would strengthen my love for Him so that my first thought would be how to spend more time in His presence!
