One of my favorite Christmas gifts was getting the brand new The Pioneer Woman Cookbook. I love this book. Not only did I read every page of Ree’s story, I also have inspected every recipe. I plan to cook through the entire book this year. Obviously I was inspired by the movie Julie and Julia. I have no hopes of becoming neither Julia Child nor her daily blogging protege. I just like to cook and I like to write so I figured I would cook, now and then (Honey will be grateful) and write about it, now and then (hopefully someone will be grateful).
I have already gifted a copy of the book to my Daughter-in-Law, Kim, who practically IS “Pioneer Woman” in her own right–critters and all.
Then we have our middle son, who also has an amazing wife with many talents but does NOT like to cook. Fortunately he always has. The very day after he and I hung over my kitchen counter exploring the pages of my cookbook, that handsome renaissance man went out and bought a copy. He has no blog but is joyfully savoring the secrets of this fresh cookbook as well.
All this to say…..One of my many goals for 2010 is to give a book away each month. It seems pretty obvious the one I should share with you.
My January book giveaway is “Pioneer Woman” Cookbook!
This is the catch—
I need some feedback for a new women’s conference that I am kicking off this year called “Imagine Me–Redeemed, Restored, Renewed…Set Free”
The conference is about finding or restoring the purpose of your life and the delightful freedom of chasing your dreams.
So this is my question…..What is ONE of Your Dreams???? Your PERSONAL dream, not social, global (like save the planet) but God Given-Heart Driven (like write a book, have your own business, be a mommy, sail around the world, own a vineyard, be a Rock Star)
What is the current status of this particular dream?
How have your dreams changed over the years?
What are your dream stoppers? Has anyone or anything ever tried to steal your dream?
What do you need to have happen for your dream to come true?
Tell me about it.
Steps To win the cookbook:
1) Write a post ON YOUR BLOG that shares your dream!
2) Within the post link back to this post/contest
3) IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A BLOG–Post on Facebook or Send me an email telling me your dream
4) Either Way–Leave a comment HERE letting me know you are joining in.
I will draw a name on Sunday 1/31 and send the winner a brand new “Pioneer Woman” Cookbook!!
