Okay, seeing is how I LOVE hot chocolate, I'd have to say grab a cup of cocoa with my sons :)

Now, for the book, read, it of course :)

Thanks for hosting the contest. How nice :)

Just Another Day In Paradise said...

Oh- I'm so excited!
I would take my husband out on a little date for the starbucks and I've been looking for a new devotional so that would be perfect.
Is it wrong that I'm really hoping I win!!!!!

Nate and Brenda said...

Lets see my husband is leaving me for a week mission trip to Haiti on wednesday morning so I may need that coffee to get me through the 7 days with my 5 kids under 11. What a blessing that would be!! :)

For the devotional it would be used for my quiet moments that I get during that same week and I think it would be such a blessings that I could in turn share with my children!!! Jesus, my friends and my blog friends are what will get me through the next 2 weeks!!!

What a great giveaway!!!

Melissa said...

I would take a friend out for coffee, and of course read the devotional. When I finished it, I would pass it along to someone else!
Great giveaway! :)

Kadie said...

I would take a friend to Starbucks, with out the children, and relax.
As far as the book, I would read and soak in as much as I could. Devotional books are great and always give me a blessing.

Kathy at Sumballo said...

Congratulations on the new book!!! If I won, I'd have to go hunting for a Starbucks (none in our little town) but I'd read your book ASAP. Thanks for sharing!!

Amrita said...

Hi Angela, I reached you through Adventurous Living. And signing up for the giveaway too.

The devotional is very much desired and so is the Starbucks coffe, as I 've never had one.

Cherdecor said...

This is a good thing! Since I have never actually been to a Starbucks, I would find one and taste test their coffee.

However, I would leave the book at home. I like to read in private because I get distracted when people are around me. I WOULD read your book. I do like devotional books.

This morning I was reading that the children of Israel made preparation before they met with the Lord. EX. 19:10-11. God commanded them to take two full days to prepare. Hmmm.

I would keep it first myself and read it, I think it would be great for me right now. After I read it I would share it with someone that maybe hurting and needs a pick me up. I hope you choose me to receive your gift.

mandy said...

i would drink up on Java & Jesus!!!!

Susan Kelly Skitt said...

P.S. I love the title to the book you've contributed to... Standing on the Promises. I love that old hymn and the meaning behind it :)

jodi said...

I haven't had time to blog-read in about 2 weeks! So happy I opened yours today!

Let's see: Starbucks gift card...ummm that's easy...Grande Non-fat white chocoate mocha no whip please.

The book: steal away to a bubble bath and read until my hearts content. Or at least until the shouts of "MOMMY!" on the other side of door become unbearable!

PS-I've missed reading your blog. Hope to get into a routine again soon!

Kathy said...

The VERY first thing I'd do with the book (autographed, of course)is flip through and search the pages frantically for the devo's written by my good buddy, Angela. I'd devour those first. I'd probably re-read those for several days allowing their depths to sink in. Then I'd begin the other devo's, one per day. But, selfishly, I'd hang on to the book even after I'm finished because it marks the beginning stages of a budding writing ministry that I know will continue to blossom and bless. As for the Starbucks--I would pass that blessing on to a friend who could use a pick-me-up. (And trust me, that's a sacrifice as I surely do love me some Frappuccino!!) :-)

e-Mom said...

Please add my name to your awesome drawing. I'd "drink" the giftcard, and after reading your book, I'd turn around and give it away at Chrysalis.

Hugs, e-Mom :~D

Kim S in SC said...

Reading Standing on God's Promises while sipping coffee! Can't think of a better way to enjoy this giveaway.

HSB Suzanne said...

I would (hopefully) read the book, and perhaps share a Starbucks "run" w/ my dh... as he is my "java man." :)

(my email roseinthemorning AT comcast DOT net)

Thanks!

Shannon @ Gabi's World said...

enter me! I'd love to win!

Kelli said...

Hey Angela,

I would take my struggling hormonal 12 year old daughter (who loves Starbucks) out for a little date and I would pass the book along to a seeker friend whom I have already been thinking about buying one for!

Love,
Kelli

Melissa said...

Oh, boy, this would be fantastic! Like so many other moms, I would use these both for an afternoon out of the house! Coffee and time with God...I can't think of anything better! Please enter me, and thanks for the giveaway!

Mommy Dot Com said...

I would take my husband to Starbucks and buy him a drink. It would be date... and I love dates! And the book. I would give it to my neighbor who won't read the Bible but will read devotions b/c I may have a copy of that book already - I'll find out tonight.

Love Bears All Things said...

I don't go to Starbucks every day like some. But after a day spent at Women's Bible study, lunch, shopping on Tuesdays, my friend Patty and I go by there, grab a cup, have a seat and chat for a while before we go our separate ways for the week.
Your book sounds like a good way to start a morning. I'd use it in my quiet time or maybe even pass it on as a gift to someone else.

LAUREN at Faith Fuel- said...

I think I would be reading your book so intently that I would forget to drink my hot starbucks coffee and it would get cold...but I wouldn't care because I would have food for my soul with your book in front of me!

Marsha said...

I came over here for Live Well Wednesday and saw this! I love this give away! Thanks so much! I have on my blog, also.

Dawn said...

A week ago I begain my journal of God's Promises and claiming them as my own. Today, I see I have the opportunity to win a devotional based on those promises, wow. I would use the gift card to enjoy apple carmel spice's or hot chocolate. They would be yummy sipper's while enjoying the devotional.

Forever_Grateful said...

Yes! A Starbucks gift card and a devotional! Perfect! I would find the coziest space in Starbucks, order a GRANDE Vanilla Soy Latte, mention to the Barista the purpose of my being here that day and read from your know-it-will-be inspiring devotional. Take it it all in,and then SHARE it with somebody else! Even if I dont win, congratulations on the release!!!

~Robin said...

oooOOOh! count me in!!
How perfect, coffee AND a book to encourage you in the Lord:)

Mocha with Linda said...

Well, of course I would order a MOCHA! :-) A Grande half-caf, skim. But I would be so excited that I'd go ahead and get the whipped cream on it!

And then I would find a cozy corner and open the book and ignore the time....

Sigh.

I always say I could put my name in 9 times and another's name in once, and their's would get drawn! But it's fun to think about!

Thanks for your sweet words on my blog this morning.

Living Beyond said...

Oh well - I would definately keep the book - BUT I would use the card to take others out for coffee/lattes and gret some of my 'pastor's wife' visiting done!!!


Yeah choose meeeeeeee! oops guess I shouldn't beg then hey lol

helenw13 said...

I had trouble getting my comment to finish loading so if this is a repeat...I apologize...

Please enter me...I found you from Susan's site...

I would grab my family and we would have a little date that would consist of hot, cold, coffee and non-coffee for the toddler...then they would all feel exceedingly joyous and grant me moments of peace to enjoy your devotional...congratulations by the way...and fun giveaway...

Helen

Cheryl said...

I would be inspired by this well written book while sipping a pumpkin spice latte!
Then I would pass it on (the book not the coffee!)

darla said...

What would I do?? I would read it of course, and probably share it but they would have to give it back to me since I know the author! LOL and starbucks goes without saying, I would probably take my girls and have a girl coffee moment!

Marsha said...

How exciting for you-- CONGRATULATIONS!!!

I can always use a white chocolate mocha... and I really am on the lookout for a good devotional book right now!
