One Wish for You - A Review and Giveaway

Recently, I was given an opportunity to review this lovely book by Celia Whitler. The moment I opened the package, I just knew I was in for a treat. One Wish for You is a book of gratitude and celebration. Think of all the women who have had an impact on your life. If given the opportunity to wish one thing on their behalf, what would you say? Celia Whitler answers this question beautifully amidst perfectly selected scripture and breathtaking photography.

As I read each page, God brought to mind a number of special women who had influenced my life. What an opportunity for praise! I finished this book with a heart overflowing with joy and thankfulness. Just in case that wasn't reason enough to love it, there is a CD tucked inside with music by the very talented author that continues to echo this theme. This would make a perfect Mother's Day gift for your Mom, or any woman who has helped to shape your life.

The publisher was kind enough to give me a copy of this book to pass along to one of you! All comments received on this post between now and Saturday evening at 5:00 pm (Eastern time), will be entered. I'll draw a winner sometime later Saturday evening. = ) Here's hoping you win!

Good evening: I hope you had a great day. It was a beautiful day here in Texas. I would love to be able to be entered in your drawing for this wonderful book. Although, Mother's Day is sad for me because my Mom has been gone from this earth for almost 6 years now. Thank you for this opportunity. Rebecca

This looks so wonderful! Whether I win or not, it looks like something i may want to get for my mom on Mother's day. That it may encourage her heart, and draw her heart to Him.
