Book Giveaway||Growing Up Duggar

I am very excited to introduce this new book, and host a giveaway of it here on my blog!

The authors, Jana, Jill, Jessa, & Jinger, are dear friends of mine, and I can testify to the fact that they are just as sweet and genuine in real life, as they are on TV.

Their family called us about a month ago and asked if we would be willing to preview and promote their new book, "Growing Up Duggar". Of course we were happy to, so they sent us a copy and we have all been reading it in shifts ever since. =)

(note: one of my brothers contributed to the "what guys are saying" section in the book.)
So anyway, all that said, I thought I would host this giveaway now since I am at the 
Christian Worldview Filmmakers Festival and won't be doing any posting until sometime next week.

Giveaway will last until next Thursday night, March 20th.

You can enter by any/each of the following:
1) comment on this post with your first and last name (and anything else you might like to say =))
2) clicking on the pinterest icon in the below tab to share on Pinterest
3) clicking the Facebook icon in the below tab to share on Facebook
4) clicking the google icon in the below tab to share on google plus
5) clicking on the twitter icon in the below tab to share on twitter
6) posting and linking to this post on your blog

If you do all six, then...you can enter six times. =) All you need to do is include your link to wherever you shared it, along with your name, each time you comment. 
You will need to comment separately for each time.

One last thing. Even if you're a guy, you can still enter. For one thing, I have spotted my brothers reading various sections of this book, and one of them said that it was actually pretty good. =)
The other thing is that even if you aren't interested in the book, chances are pretty good you either have a girlfriend or a sister or a daughter or SOME female in your life who might like a little gift from you. =) 

Happy weekend!
-Chels
