If you have read my blog for any length of time, you will know that I love Angie Smith. She is my favorite blogger and Christian author. She’s pretty much for me the way Beth Moore is for millions of Christian ladies.
That’s a love of love.
Plus, I’ve met Angie twice and interacted with her countless times on twitter and years ago by email, back when she was blogging about life and her Audrey girl.
Well, Angie just released her fourth book, her first hardcover. Apparently I really, really wanted that book because I managed to pre-order it not once, not twice – but three times. Three! Don’t ask me how that’s possible. I realized I’d ordered it twice but was surprised by the third one.
Apparently I was just so ridiculously excited to get it.
Or I’m losing my memory.
Chasing God is described this way:
Three words changed everything.
Maybe you’ve never asked the question out loud, but you’ve wondered. You do the things that look good on paper: read you Bible, pray, attend study groups, and go to church on Sundays.
But you aren’t convinced you really know Him.
Angie Smith understands, because she had run in circles around the same paths searching for him, frustrated at her lack of progress. And she probably would have continued to do so had it not been for one realization that changed everything.
She wasn’t following God; she was trying to catch up with Him.
And without realizing it, you may be as well.
I haven’t started my copy, but I will soon – probably tonight as soon as I wrap up the last few pages of a book I’m reading. I’d love to give away my extra copy.
The rules for entering are simple. Leave me one of two comments.
1. If you’ve read one of Angie’s books before (I Will Carry You, What Women Fear, and Mended: Pieces of a Life Made Whole), leave me a comment telling me which book was your favorite and why.
2. If you haven’t read one of Angie’s books before, tell me why it is you want to read this book.
You can get one extra entry by tweeting about this giveaway. I don’t care what you tweet as long as you use my name in the tweet (@kristaonpurpose). Be sure you come back here and leave an additional comment with the link to the tweet. If your account is private, I’m not sure I can see the tweet.
I’ll draw a winner sometime after church on Sunday!
