Giveaway: Evenings With Victoria Botkin

This giveaway is closed, and a winner has been announced here.  Thanks to all who entered!

I don’t usually let giveaways overlap, but this one is important.

My friend Victoria is a sweet and wise woman, and always reminds me of my own mother when I’m around her.  I suspect she has this effect on many women, and I’m glad to hear that she is actively mentoring young wives!

I loved her advice on how to choose a curriculum, but now she is focusing more directly on counselling a wife in her role as her husband’s helper.

From the family website, Western Conservatory:

How does a wife help her husband be the man Christ wants him to be? How can she inspire him to love her? How can she discover the forgotten joys of being the helper God designed her to be? Beginning March 1, Victoria, beloved wife to Geoffrey Botkin, will host weekly online mentoring sessions for women as a homemaker’s resource to the worldwide Christian community. Mother to five boys and two girls, Victoria draws insight from 30 years of applying Scripture to marriage with one of America’s most visionary men.

Join Victoria as she discusses subjects such as woman’s great power, sinful tendencies, obedience vs. submission, independence vs. submission, freedom vs. submission, beauty, dress, makeup, respect, women’s rights, hospitality, speaking words of life, managing with grace, pitfalls of perfectionism in homemaking, Hollywood expectations, trials, trust, and cultivating personality. Victoria will begin each session by responding to pressing, appropriate questions from participants. Topic headings include:

  • All about Eve
  • All about Sarah
  • The Proverbs 31 wife
  • About love
  • How to help your husband love you
  • How to become a wise woman

Sessions will take place Monday evenings from 8 to 9 p.m., Central Time, March 1 through April 26, 2010. The cost for these nine sessions is $49 per woman, and daughters may listen in with their mothers. The sessions will also be recorded and MP3s made freely available to participants shortly after each session, so that any who cannot join all nine sessions live may still hear what was discussed.


Interested?  The Botkin family has offered one of our readers free attendance to all nine sessions!  This would include daughters who listen in with their mother.

To enter, just leave a comment telling whether you are familiar with any of the Botkin’s work or products and what you think about the product(s).  No, they didn’t put me up to that.  I came up with it myself because I like them.  🙂

As usual, you can enter up to 3 more times by linking to this giveaway on Facebook, Twitter, and/or your blog.  Please leave a separate comment here for each entry.

We’ll take entries through this Friday, then announce a winner just in time to start next Monday.

    We have several DVDs with talks by Mr Botkin, “So much More” by the Botkin sisters and several other materials by the Botkins. Our family has enjoyed gleaning from the wisdom the Lord has given this family. We love them!

  19. It would be such a blessing to win this! I adore the curriculum advice cds by the Botkins. I was actually just listening to the first one, yesterday. I absolutely adore how “freeing” their homeschooling curricula recommendations are! I also love the Return of the Daughters dvd. I was not raised to be a homemaker, so this dvd gave me a godly vision for my precious daughters.

  20. Oh how I would love to enter to win! I am just learning about the Botkin family. The Lord has recently changed my heart as a mother and wife to be more visionary. It is such a joy to see the look on my daughters face when we talk about homemaking and to see the peace on my husbands when I serve him in a biblical way. I would love the oppurtunity to join the ladies in this wonderful journey with Mrs. Botkin. Untill then I will look forward to adding their books to my collection and serve my childen and husband with a renewed passion and love for the Lord and what he has called me to be.
    Simply His,

  21. Thanks for entering me into your drawing.
