In my devotion published today, Tuesday, I talked about Jesus’ parable of the pearl merchant and this man’s readiness to give his all for something of supreme value. And how we have the same opportunity as followers of Jesus Christ who is the Pearl of Great Price. I talk more about this in the second chapter of my just released book It’s No Secret: Revealing Divine Truths Every Woman Should Know.
You can read the entire introduction and first chapter of the book HERE.
I wish we could sit down over cups of coffee today and chat some about this Pearl. And that I could pull out an exquisite pearl pendant and fasten it around your neck as a reminder that you already possess the Pearl of Great Price. But I can’t really do that – I don’t have that many frequent flier miles! But I do have something special to offer today …
If you look at the cover of my new book, you’ll see one of my favorite things: coffee. (I’m so thrilled that the pumpkin spice lattes are back at Starbucks!) So when I saw one of jewelry maker Lisa Leonard’s new designs– I thought it was the perfect necklace.
I contacted her immediately and asked if she could make me one with “Rachel” and “It’s No Secret" on the charms. I cannot wait for it to arrive and I’m hoping it’s here in time for my book launch event this weekend. Wouldn’t that be a great touch?
Then I had a notion – I wanted you to have this necklace too. So I asked Lisa to partner with me to give one of these necklaces away to you – with whatever you want engraved on it. And she agreed to make one for my lucky prize winner. Can you picture this around your neck with your name? Or around your daughter's or friend's neck with her name?
I’m thrilled to offer one winning reader a signed copy of my new book and a personalized coffee-cup-and-pearl charm necklace from Lisa Leonard Designs – this is a $75 value!
To be eligible for the prize drawing, you’ll need to do 3 simple things:
1) Click on my book cover above and read the table of contents for It’s No Secret, and tell me which chapters interest you the most.
2) Click on the necklace picture to the right, look over Lisa’s website and tell me which of her other creations catch your fancy the most.
3) Tweet, blog or facebook about this giveaway, or mention it on any social media sites you have accounts on, for extra entries!
Post a comment with your responses to 1 and 2, and anything you did for number 3 by midnight on Wednesday. Then start dreaming about what you’ll have engraved on the charm. Picture yourself in your new necklace, sipping something in a coffee shop, reading my new book. Ahhh, isn’t that lovely?
Thankful for Lisa Leonard’s graciousness and talent.
