Giveaway with Author Amanda Beth!!!

I’m thrilled to have my friend, Author Amanda Beth, as my guest this week. Amanda Beth is giving away a signed copy of her fantastic new book The LOVE Walk: A 15 – Week Devotional on 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Here’s a bit about the book:

 The LOVE Walk-coverpicThe LOVE Walk is a fifteen week devotional created to encourage and support you in your love walk. Each devotional focuses on a different characteristic of love as described in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8:

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails….”

Each chapter includes an encouragement, a prayer, verses to meditate on, and one verse to memorize to support you in your love walk. Additionally, at the end of each chapter there are questions to reflect on for personal evaluation or group study.

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

—1 Corinthians 13:13

 

Amanda is also the author of the book You Can Have a Happy Family: Steps to Enjoying Your Marriage and Children, which I have read and highly recommend. You can find information about that book here.

Where to Purchase:

Amazon, Barnes & Noble (paperback version only) and Amanda’s website (discounts for multiple copies purchased).

Interview and Giveaway with Author Amanda Beth!!!

I’m excited about your new book, Amanda! Can you give us the official blurb?

YOU can’t perfect your family.

YOUR SPOUSE can’t perfect your family.

NO ONE can perfect your family.

But there is hope…GOD CAN! Join Amanda on her journey to find contentment. She takes you through her personal testimony and reveals the steps God taught her that freed her from insecurity, strife, distrust, resentment, and chaos in her marriage.

Product Details

Sounds like a wonderful book that would be an asset to any family.  What inspired you to write this book?
The Lord inspired me. I was leading Bible studies in my home when I felt a strong leading from the Lord to write this book. My husband and I had a rough relationship for the first half of our 15 years of marriage. Once God worked in our marriage, people started noticing. My husband and I were often asked by others how we had such a happy marriage and family. We would always tell people that it was all God. But I felt it left people wanting to know more. That’s when I knew God wanted me to share the steps He took us through to help us find true contentment in our home.
 
How do you hope this book will encourage Christian families?
My hope for this book is that the reader would know how much they are loved by the Lord. I pray that this book would give people hope and encouragement in their marriages and raising their children. I want the reader to walk away certain that God is fighting for their marriages and families. He truly wants nothing but the best for us.
 
So true, Amanda! We serve an amazing God who loves and cares so much for us! Can you tell us where readers can connect with you on the web?
 
And where can we find your book?
The book is available at: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, CreateSpace, and amandabeth.net
