Thank you so much for the giveaways! How important it is to surround our children with Orthodox books! We already have the book, The Man and the Vine. We would love to have The Woman and the Wheat to add to our library… +God bless you!


And the winner of Basil’s Search for Miracles is:


Our family would love either of these…thank you for doing this!

Jane and Heather,

Thank you so much for your generosity.  My kids and I are so excited to win the copy of Basil’s Search for Miracles, especially my 7year old, BASIL!

We live in Southern California and have four children, Basil (7), Juliana (5), Simeon (3), Emelia (1).

Thank you for promoting and creating wonderful Orthodox literature,

Blessed Advent,

Last of all, don’t forget that both The Man and the Vine, and The Woman and the Wheat will be on sale from SVSPress ($15 each instead of $18 each) for three days, starting TOMORROW! (November 16-18th.)

Feel free to tell your friends.

Count me in too! I have lovely little friends of my good long time friends who I would love to read this too… :)

Congrads on your blog anniversary! :)

Here’s just the tiniest bit I know about Elizabeth. She lives in Canada, and she has a very lovely blog:

Don’t forget to stop by on Wednesday, when I’ll open up comments for a giveaway of The Woman and the Wheat!

And… as a big bonus, I’ve asked some of my writer friends to join me in giving away some of their books as well–since you are such an amazing, faithful, beautiful group of readers.

More to come soon! On to finish my day’s baking. 🙂
