Chiks on the Go {giveaway}

{this giveaway is now closed}

WINNERS: Comments #2, 7, 8 & 9 selected @

you can't read your bible while you're driving.

but sometimes... don't you wish you could? i do. because let's face it, some days it just seems impossible to get alone with God.

He longs to spend time with us. He knows i am on the go, that i have places to be, people to see, and things to cross off of my to-do list. but still, He wants us to immerse ourselves in His Word, to learn more, to get closer, to grow stronger in our faith.

" comes from hearing the message, 
and the message is heard through the word about Christ."
Romans 10:17 NIV

after too many too busy days, and no room to add anything else to my to-do list, i prayed with all sincerity that i would find time to spend with God even on my busiest of days. 

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; 
knock and the door will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; 
and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened."
Matthew 7:7 NIV

He answered my prayer quickly. i may not be able to read my Bible when i'm running errands, but i can pop this into my car CD player:

drive time devotionals! "for the busy Chik"! YES! 

Chiks on the Go is 15 brief but powerful messages brought to you by April Simons. her light-hearted  messages will encourage your heart and draw you closer to the Lord. April Simons has five(!) children, so naturally, the devotionals are designed for women, and she can definitely relate to busy moms. she is fun and funny as she shares practical, insightful, biblical word.

these CDs are perfect for listening to in the school drop off lane, on the way to soccer practice, to the grocery store, in 5 o'clock traffic, on your iPod at the gym, or wherever it is you're going whatever it is you're doing. you might even find yourself volunteering to run extra errands just so you can listen to more Chiks on the Go devotionals. maybe?

April serves alongside her husband, Gary, as they pastor High Point Church in Arlington, which just so happens to be my church. April is The Ultimate Chik and i just love her so much. please look how gorgeous she is...and trust me she is just as gorgeous on the inside:
