So this is what I am thinking....

I have been thinking alot about the blog and what direction I should go and this is what I came up with....

I am going to return to some of the old stuff and even try something new. I will go back to doing an occasional "Make a Choice Monday" and "Fashion Friday" but I think I will actually call it "Fabulous Friday" because it might not always be about fashion but it will be about something fabulous:)

And now to the new....I thought about the things I am passionate about and although there are many one thing stands out....I LOVE to read. So starting on Wedenesday February 9, 2011 I will begin something I will call "What I'm Reading Wednesday". I am super excited! Each week I will discuss a chapter in a book I am reading. I hope some of you will join me because discussing it with myslef could tend to be a bit one sided.

My first selection will be a new book by Lysa TerKeurst called "Made To Crave". Anyone who leaves a comment on this post between now and Thursday February 3, 2011 will be entered for a chance to win the book! Here is what the book is about:

Has food become more about frustration than fulfillment? The New York Times Best Selling book Made to Crave is the missing link between a woman’s desire to be healthy and the spiritual empowerment necessary to make that happen. Author Lysa TerKeurst personally understands the battle that women face. In Made to Crave, she will help you:

*Break the cycle of “I’ll start again on Monday,” and feel good about yourself today.

*Stop agonizing over numbers on the scale and make peace with your body.

*Replace rationalization that leads to diet failure with wisdom that leads to victory.

*Reach your healthy goals and grow closer to God through the process.

This book is not a how-to manual or the latest, greatest dieting plan. Made to Crave is a helpful companion to use alongside whatever healthy eating approach you choose —a book and Bible study to help you find the “want to” in how to make healthy lifestyle changes.

Join Lysa and experience all that you were made to crave!

You can read more on the Made to Crave Website!

Please don't read this and think just because food isn't what you struggle with you don't need to read it. I believe we all try to fill our empty places with all kinds of different unhealthy things, not just food, and this book can help us look at all the things we "crave" that aren't good for us.

I hope you will join me! Remember leave a comment for a chance to win the book!

Have a blessed weekend!

I am so excited to join you on Wednesdays. I am posting about the bible study I am doing on Wednesdays (Well, most Wednesdays) so I will link up with you.

I can't wait to hear about this book. I thought of reading it myself.

This book sounds great! I would be blessed to win this book. I have been struggling with the desire to change my eating habits. Thanks for "leading" us through this book!
