Monday Morning and a Giveaway

Today I am posting a Marriage Monday at Woman to Woman.  Please join me! 

Happy Monday friends!  Thank you all for the well wishes for a safe and fun vacation last week.  We had such a wonderful time.  It is always so nice to get away from it all and unwind.  I already miss the beach but it is nice to get back to a normal routine.  And just so y'all know (I was in the south for ten days, many more y'alls to come, smiles), I struggled with fear for many years about my children being on the balcony of our vacation room.  But this year decided to release that fear and trust God.  I was doing so good until we got to our room and found out that the bedroom the kids were staying in had a balcony all its own.  The fear started to creep in again.  But I was reminded over and over that God is in control!  I praise God that He kept the children safe and held my fear in check.

Front L to R: Me, my husband Jeremy, my dad Jim, my mom Debi, and my son Zach
Back L to R: My son Jeremaih, my daughter Lylea, and my daughter Grace

Today I am so excited to tell you about two new cds I recieved recently.  I am a long time Jeremy Riddle fan and have been anxiously awaiting his new cd, Furioius.  Jeremy's music is always such a blessing to me and this new cd is no different.  I have been in back town only one day and have already listened to the cd several times.  Take a moment to check Jeremy out here, you will be blessed!  

I also received the new cd for Ginny Owens.  I have only recently heard of Ginny but she is definitely someone I will continue to listen to!  She has a unique and fun sound.  My kids are enjoying her music along with me.

This week I am giving away both cds!  The winner will receive Jeremy Riddle's Furious and Ginny Owens' cd Get In, I'm Driving.  To enter to win all you have to do is leave a comment each day this week in the comment section below.  For an extra entry each day, Facebook or Twitter about the giveaway and leave a separate comment telling me you shared the giveaway.  The winner will be announced on Friday (9/16).

What is your favorite cd or song?

Sweet Blessings~


  1. It is such a blessing when God removes a specific fear so we can relax and enjoy a part of life that fear had previously held captive.

  2. So glad "y'all" had a great time! Please tell me you were in SC! Nothing finer than Carolina! Love it here! Anywho, my favorite song right now is Hold Me by Jamie Grace! LOVE IT!!!

  3. Pam, so true! This fear has been crippling for so long but now God has it and I feel released.

    Lindsay, YES! Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! Our absolute favorite place to be. If my family (parents, grandparents, and siblings) would get on board with me, my hubby and I would so move there! :) And I always say "y'all" but it really comes out after being in the south! Lol. We love that song my Jamie Grace, always turn the radio up loud when it comes on!

  4. I'm so glad you had a great trip! Love your family pictures! And, Ginny Owens is among the first few Christian artists I listened too when I became a believer! Great music :) Blessings!

  5. Jeremy Riddle's new CD is on my wish list. How awesome that you are giving it away! :) Glad you all had a great time on vacation and it's nice to have you back.

  6. I shared this contest on facebook. :)

  7. Beautiful song, Jenifer! Lately I've been listening to Gungor. Their newest album comes out Sept 20...I can't wait!

  8. Hi Jenifer - firstly, glad you're back safe and sound and blogging and secondly, what a content looking family. I'm going to look those cd's up because I've never heard of them and need some new Christian music. God bless

  9. I am glad you are back. Most of I am glad that you were able to be set from the fear of your kids on the balcony.

  10. I also understand your fear. It is in very encouraging for me, you write about it. Thank you. And it's great you've had such a good time. Welcome home and God bless you

  11. It is so nice we God helps us overcome fear! Glad y'all had a wonderful vacation! I love these artists...I havent heard them before:)

  12. Glad you had a restful vacation! I love all kinds of music, as long as it is Christian. I don't listen to secular music anymore, not that I think it's wrong for others, but it's just not right for me!

  13. Jenifer,

    So glad you had a funvacation and God kept you all safe.

    Blessings to you Jenifer.

  14. Welcome back! I'm so happy you had a great time on vacation, but I certainly missed your postings each day. :-)

    Have a Blessed Day!

  15. I would love this :) Thanks for the chance!
