Give-a-Way----Busy Homeschool Moms!

I've blogged a couple of times about the impact the book "The Busy Homeschool Mom's Guide to...Romance:  nurturing your marriage through the homeschool years" has had on my marriage.  I've recommended it several times and now I'm THRILLED to be giving a copy of it away! 

My copy:

As you can see, my copy has post-it flags all over it!  When I'm reading a book, I highlight like crazy.  When I put a "flag" on a page it means not only did I love what it said, but I also felt like it was shareable or quotable.   You can tell that I found lots of aspects of the book shareable!

Winner's Copy:

A nice new copy ready to be shipped.  No flags and no highlighting gone crazy!  :)

Though I could write endlessly about the great content of the book (and I have on different occasions), I would just rather leave you with part of the description on the back of the book. 

Homeschooling offers parents the best opportunity to shepherd their children both academically and spiritually.  Yes, it's worth it.  But do you ever feel as if your life is "all homeschool--all the time?"

Do you ever wonder where the girl your husband married went?  This book is for every mom who has collapsed into bed at the end of the day, looked into the eyes of her husband and promised "tomorrow" she'd have time for him.  Trouble is, tomorrow finds her more exhausted than the day before.

If you have ever felt caught between the demands of homeschooling your children and meeting the needs of your husband, you're not alone.  Read and discover how even a busy homeschool mom can make time to nurture her marriage.  It's not as hard as you think---and more important than you may realize.

I will say this, the content of the book CAN change your marriage.  As a matter of fact, I think it is an excellent book for BUSY moms in general---not just homeschoolers.  Granted, it is written from the perspective of a homeschool mom for other homeschool moms, but it definitely packs some truth for all moms! 

To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post with your name, how many kids you have, and whether or not you homeschool.  That simple.  Be sure to include your email address if you sign in as "anonymous" so that I will be able to contact you if you are the winner!  The winner will be chosen randomly Sunday evening November 6th.
