"The Me Project" ~ Review & Giveaway!


Hey friends!

I interrupt this blog post to announce that my 4 kids have a Snow Day again today! Would you believe I had sick kids EVERY day last week, and now a Snow Day today. Would you please join me in praying that God would help me get all of the details finished for the Red Hot retreat which is this Friday night/Saturday. Boy does God have a sense of humor, doesn't He?! My Manda just said, "I wonder if we'll have a Snow Day tomorrow too??" Please Lord, NO!! :)

Have you read any new good books lately?? :)

One of the many blessings of this blog is the opportunity to read and review new books! And my favorite part is sharing the blessing with you with fun book giveways!!

I was thrilled when I was recently asked to participate in a Blog Tour featuring a great new book called The Me Project: 21 Days to Living the Life You've Always Wanted!
How I wish I would have had this resource years ago...especially when my kids were little and I wondered if God had a plan for me in the craziness of motherhood! This inspiring book is filled with such great information about becoming the best person you can possibly be, especially in the mist of life's daily demands (like endless days of sick kids and too many snow days!!)

Here's more about The Me Project:

As women, we forget the goals and dreams of our younger years. The busyness of everyday life gets in the way. To-do lists replace goals. The Me Project provides women with fun and creative ways to bring back the sense of purpose and vitality that comes with living out the plans and dreams God has planted in our hearts. Author Kathi Lipp’s warm tone and laugh-out-loud humor motivates women to take daily steps toward intentional goals. The end result? We get back our lives and enjoy living in the confidence of a purposeful life in spite of our chaotic schedules.

This handy guide coaches women to do one simple thing toward achieving our goals each day for three weeks. A woman experiencing the exhilaration of a rediscovered life offers more as a wife, mother, friend, volunteer, career woman.

After reading this book, author Kathi seems like my girlfriend and we just shared coffee! She speaks from her heart with such authenticity, humor, and grace.


Here's more about the Kathi...

Kathi Lipp is a busy conference and retreat speaker, currently speaking each year to thousands of women throughout the United States. She is the author of The Husband Project and The Marriage Project, serves as food writer for Nickelodeon, and has had articles published in several magazines, including Today’s Christian Woman and Discipleship Journal. Kathi and her husband, Roger, live in California and are the parents of four teenagers and young adults. For more information visit her website:

I have always wanted to design needlework samplers, but as a mother of 7 (ages 25-7) my dream had to take a back seat. I do NOT regret this, someday, when The Lord shows me it is the right time, I will pursue my dream :) Thanks for an encouraging blog.
On a side note, my oldest son just relocated to Grand Rapids. I can't wait to come visit him!!!

Sharla Fritz said...

Thanks for the post Cindy. I'll be praying for you for this weekend. I'd love to win the Me project because it always seems that life gets too busy to do all that I want to do. I could use some help in priortizing!

Kathi Lipp said...

Hey Cindy -

Wow - I'm so glad that THE ME PROJECT hit you (in the right way!) In the midst of planning a retreat, and the plagues (lice) I am doubly grateful that you took the time to put togehter a thoughtful review.

I would LOVE to win the Me Project book because this is my year of becoming a better me! I'm losing weight, getting fit, getting braces, upgrading my thought life, etc. If I were to win this book, I would take it with me on our trip to Florida in March and have some great quiet time/fellowship with God during those 10 days away from the busyness of life. Whether I win it or not, it's definitely at the top of my to-read list now! Thanks Cindy!

I'm a 28 year old wife, nurse, grad student, who also now cares for my mother through 3 different chronic illnesses that make her unable to drive, while also taking care of my grandparents in their 90s, while working full time and school full time. I NEED SOMETHING TO BRING SOME SANITY TO MY LIFE!

Christie said...

A dream that is currently on hold is becoming a mother. At least until school is done for me this spring. I just can't add one more thing to my life right now.

Cindy...you always seem to have book giveaways at the exact same time that they pertain to what I am going through or struggling with in my life. This looks like a great read! Thanks for sharing!

Dawn said...

I'd love to win because I'm feeling a little "frumpy" these days. 21 days would whip me into shape just in time for some important events in our family.

Goals not yet worked on? The book that I know I'm supposed to be writing.
