Stress Detox Day 2 Daily Giveaway


Before I tell you about today's giveaway, I felt compelled to share how moved I was yesterday at not only the incredible response to the Day 1 stress detox, but also at all the stressors and heartaches that so many of you are facing. Over 260 comments were posted, but the reality is that the real number of stressors mentioned, and those unmentioned, are infinite. 

There were countless unique challenges mentioned, and many common stressors that we all share, but each one made me pause and pray. My heart sunk upon reading some of your concerns and felt burdened for the stress running rampant in everyone's life. I have read and prayed over all these comments, and will be seeking God's guidance about addressing them more closely in the coming weeks. But in the meantime, please know that prayers are being lifted up for all of you. 


Today's stress detox message talks about the real picture of peace, versus our distorted views of peace in today's world.

Reading and listening to worship music is an excellent way to not only settle down after a long stressful day, but also opens our hearts to hear from God and let His peace sink in. So it seems only appropriate to give some incentive to do just that with today's giveaway.  These  giveaway items, along with your own personal Bible, are perfect to set the mood for some soul searching, heart cleansing, and gentle quiet time with Jesus.

Today's Giveaway items include: 

A signed copy of Stressed-Less Living

A soothing worship CD

A pink Taskbright mini-book lamp so you can read in any quiet area of your choice


How to enter to win today's giveaway: 

Simply share the link to the Stressed-Less Living book website on your Facebook page, with a brief comment about it to your friends. Be sure to 'tag' me in your post so I can keep track of everyone who enters to win.  (If we aren't friends yet, feel free to send me a request!)

Here is the link to the website: www.stressedlessliving.com

Happy posting and good luck!

** If you are not a Facebook user and want to enter the giveaway, just leave a quick comment saying "Me too!", and you're name will still be entered into the drawing.  Smiles. :-) Good 'ol word of mouth is awesome as well!

I am on occasionally on Facebook but have never shared a link and have no idea how to do so. I have however been sharing information about your site via good old fashioned word of mouth :) Does that count too?

Thank you for your prayers.
Wow! I am in tears because I totally forget the real meaning of peace and just blaming the situations for not having peace or quite time. Thank God for your life and the wisdom He is giving you tha share with us about living less stress and having in our hearts real peace. May God bless you, and all of us to accept the real peace in our hearts today.

Me too! I don't use Facebook either. The Stress Detox comes at a perfect time for me. Between my marriage, my job, and life in general, I want to run away to a place that only God can find me. I feel Like I have some hope of finding peace and sanity now. Thanks Tracie!!

Me too please!! I can't get on Facebook here at work so I really appreciate being able to comment here for a chance to win. I have been under tremendous stress with baby #4 on the way, school starting, and work not going great. Your posts have been wonderful reminders about what REALLY matters! Thank you!!

Sharon W said...

I shared your site url on Facebook. I have actually experienced the peace that you speak of...that quiet peace that on being in the presence of God can create. Thank you for reminding me to go back to that place and call out to Him to draw close so I can feel His love and peace.

Hello!

I am a part of the stress detox & I have put the link on FB but didn't tag you b/c I just sent a friend request a couple of minutes ago. I did include your name as the author of the book so I hope that counts as a "tag" for now. I have also written something regarding the book to a FB friend earlier this week:) My name on FB is Linda Ford (there will be my maiden name which starts with "M" in between the other two names. I am saying that so you know who I am & can accept the friend request. Thanks!

Thank you so much for this good reminder.
God bless you.

iAs usual I am way behind. When I read the day 2 stress detox and you said we have to picture peace and the time we had it I realized I cannot even think about such a time nor have I any idea of a "picture" of peace, not even as a child!

So, I really have some serious work to do.
