Giveaway: through April 30th: Love as a Way of Life

This will be my first giveaway, I'm very excited! I thought it would be appropriate for my first giveaway, to put up what I won in another giveaway :o) (the only time, btw, lol)

{Extra clarification: this giveaway is through APRIL 30th, not May 30th. I cannot fix my error for the title and URL of this post :o/ }

What's up for grabs is the book "Love as a Way of Life" by the popular Christian author, writer of The Five Love Languages, Gary Chapman.

from a review:
"This book is literally about the seven habits of people who are loving in their daily lives on a consistent basis. As Gary discusses each habit (kindness, patience, forgiveness, courtesy, humility, generosity and honesty) he provides heart-warming and inspirational stories of people who put love in action. There is so much sage advice in this book as well as a great deal of life-changing advice. " (read more reviews)

  5. I have read a summary of what the five love languages ARE, and I think it is great to be able to know how others give and receive love.
    I'm a "quality time" myself!

  27. I think the Love Languages books are great. I've read the original book (it's a great way to understand people) and I read The Five Love Languages Of God when I was struggling spiritually. It really helped me to see many ways God loves. Thanks for the giveaway-- I'm a big fan! --Michelle, blogattoday (~!at] gmaildotcom

  37. I haven't read it, but my husband read the Five Love Languages of Children (I think that was it...or he just applied it to our children). He told me a little about it & it was pretty interesting. With 5 kids & homeschooling, I just don't always have a lot of time to read.

    Thanks for the opportunity,
