TILT: Priscilla Shirer (& GIVEAWAY)

Thank you everyone for your comments on my recent "Fat Talk Free" series. May God continue to bring TRUTH to us all in this area! I'll keep you posted this weekend on details for my Body Image radio segment next week. THANK YOU for your support and prayers!

Years ago, while I was at a Beth Moore
Conference, I purchased a Bible study called, "Discerning the Voice of God". It was written by Priscilla Shirer, a writer I had not yet heard of ~ but based on the topic of the study, I decided to give it a try.

Fast forward 3+ years, and my dear friend Julie and I were praying about a study to share with our Monday Night group. We prayerfully decided to purchaed the "Discerning the Voice of God" DVD teachings, and see if Priscilla's teaching style would be a good fit with our group.

Priscilla is a anointed, gifted, passionate teacher of the Word! As a wife, daughter, and mom ~ Priscilla speaks to a wide age group of women in a way that is authentic and applicable. She has made our group laugh, cry, take notes furiously, and fall more passionately in love with the Word. Priscilla is a real treasure in the Kingdom!!

In the past two years, we have also participated in other Priscilla studies....

* One in a Million ~ Journey to Your Promised Land Living

* Anointed, Transformed, and Redeemed (co-authored w/ Beth Moore & Kay Arthur)

* and next month, we'll begin Priscilla's latest study, Jonah

(Grand Rapids friends, watch for more details...)

Imagine my great surprise and delight when I recently received a request to GIVEAWAY Priscilla's latest book, One in a Million, based on the amazing Bible study.

Of course my answer was YES!

Priscilla shares, "So many Christians today go to church every Sunday out of habit or obligation, but never choose to see God in the everyday. To follow God's purpose, we must take our relationship with Him beyond the pews....

Get over being average. Break out of the box. Don't just want it. Live it. Today and every day."

Here's Priscilla sharing more...

Not only is One In A Million an excellent, encouraging, Word-filled read,

I LOVE Priscilla's list of 30 + characteristics of a believer experiencing the abundant life in Christ (Promised-Land Living), such as...

* Senses and acknowledges God's continual presence - Psalm 139:7-10
* Casts anxiety and worry on God - 1 Peter 5:7
* Recognizes and utilizes God's spiritual armor - Ephesian 6:10-18
* Forgives when wronged - Matthews 18:21, 22

* Believes God can supply her every need - Phillipians 4:13

I would love, love, love to share this book with you!!

I'll close with one more quote from one Priscilla....

"Promised-Land Living does not mean a life with no problems. It means experiencing God's power and presence in spite of difficulty. You know you are living in the land of abundance not when your circumstances change, but when (promised land living) describes your life - even when your circumstances have not changed."

Thanks for stopping by *She Sparkles*. Have a wonderful, joy-filled, promised land living day!!

This sounds great!! I like that you loved it first, THEN got to do a giveaway - that's the way it should work! My Bible study right now (we're doing a neighborhood one for the summer - all different churches, but it's awesome!) has been very interested in spiritual armor; I would love to read more about this and share it with my friends.
I can't wait to see what you have in store for your Grand Rapids friends!

I would love to win this book because I want to experience the abundant life I see other Christians have. I have been saved since 1994 and still feel so much a babe in Christ, waiting on those miracles to happen. I want to be one of those `One in a Million` (one of those handful)

I'm not sure if these entries are to be on one comment, or separate. I am putting them all on one comment, hope that's ok.

I follow *She Sparkles*
I have the *She Sparkles* on my left sidebar.

I missed my (temporary) church's study "Annointed, Redeemed and Transformed" because I had foot surgery and the doctor said, "No way no how," to driving.

So maybe just maybe this is a one in a million answer for me.

I've been struggling a lot lately in my walk and need something to help me! Maybe this book is all.
