Can you see why I’m so excited?  It almost reads like a list of 4 Moms posts or FAQ for Families.  I’ll be the first to admit that I’m full of good intentions that fall by the wayside, but I’ve resolved that I actually will make time to listen to these, because they are so relevant to everyday life for us.

Beginning March 1, every Tuesday morning for twenty weeks you will receive a link to your new downloadable message from Doug or Beall, hosted at Vision Forum’s partner website

  11. I joined Blue Bohemeth–great resources!

  12. I think How to Use Household Decorations to Teach Character would be great to listen to! Thanks for the giveaway!

  13. I subscribe to your blog 🙂

  14. The one that interests me the most and think would be the most beneficial is 6.How to Involve the Whole Family in Family Worship

  15. I subscribe to the blog.

  16. I have an account on Blue Behemoth.

  17. Enter me, please! 🙂

  18. Lindsey Thomas says:

    I subscribed! This is the first blog I have ever done that with, how fun!

  19. Lindsey Thomas says:

    I like the one about “How to Take your Family on a Roadtrip,” because we are hoping to do that this summer in our “new” van that my husband is fixing up!

  20. If I’ve shared, um, dozens? of my favorite posts of yours, does that count? Your 4 Moms posts are my favorites and I’m in the process of linking them here (I hope you don’t think I’m crazy…):

  21. I already subscribe to Life in a Shoe.

  22. I have trouble narrowing it down so I asked my husband and he said #15 interests him the most.

  23. I am a subscriber to Life in a Shoe.

  24. How to Wage War on Sibling Rivalry would be most helpful to my family right now. All the messages sound wonderful, I had a hard time picking my number one.

  25. For a second entry — I subscribe to you! 🙂

  26. “How to Encourage Masculinity in Sons” would definitely be the most valuable – we are expecting our first baby, a boy! Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  27. I just subscribed in Blogger!

  28. I think ‘How to Handle a Social Worker Visit’ would be most useful to my husband and I. We would like to follow my parents example of adoption, and although I’ve seen them go through multiple social worker visits, being on the parental end would be totally different! I’m excited about all these messages though!

  29. Most assuredly the “jive talk” would be the MOST useful for us. The kids have certainly picked up a lot of slang from ME, but they have a lovely way of twisting it into ugliness and insults, so learning not only how to break the habit myself, but help un-training my kids in this sarcastic area of our lives would be helpful.

  30. These are all great! Thanks for the opportunity! I think we could learn alot about the entrepreneurial spirit!

  31. BTW I know of several other blogs who are giving these away. Here is one:

    I would google “Family Strategies: Practical Issues for Building Healthy Families” for more chances to win.

Don't just think it: say it!
