Anniversary Day 2 – Meet the New Contributors! (Plus Doorposts Giveaway!)*GIVEAWAY CLOSED*

by Sarah Mae on May 31, 2011 in Announcements, Fun, Giveaways


Before get started on the giveaway goodness, I would like to introduce you to the new Raising Homemakers contributors!

First up we have Stephanie, who blogs at Keeper of the Home (@keeperhome)where she inspires and educates women on the topics of nutrition, natural homemaking, “greener” lifestyle choices, and frugal, simple living.  She is currently in the Philippines with Compassion International serving the people there. You can subscribe to her blog here.

We also have Kimberly, who blogs at Raising Olives (@raisingolives), a wonderfully practical blog with tons of help and encouragement for running a household. I find myself meandering over to her blog when I’m stuck on some homemaking issue (Chores! Schedules! Parenting!).  Go ahead and subscribe to her blog here.

Next up…Amy! She blogs at Raising Arrows (@raising_arrows) where she shares her joy and sorrows that come with six living children and a precious one in heaven. She is the author of Psalms for the Grieving Heart, and she is a candid soul. You can subscribe to her blog here.

And then there is Susannah! Susannah blogs at Fashion and Modesty (where life is too short not to wear red shoes), and she’s the youngest of the six Forster children (Doorposts!). She also recently graduated from homeschooling.

Last but not least, we have Meghan, blogger at Divinely Domesticated. Her heart is to encourage women to strive to be the most God has called them to be while learning to be keepers of the home.

I hope you will give these women a warm welcome! Read all the contributor bios here.

Now onto today’s GIVEAWAY!

Have you seen our New Featured Resources page? Well, the first business on there is Doorposts, makers of encouraging, Bible-based, parent-designed, family-tested materials that will help you apply Scripture in your home. We love them (and their blog). Today they have donated multiple items to help you guide your child’s heart towards faithfulness, obedience, and grace. One of you will take home all of this:

Polished Cornerstones

This 497-page, spiral-bound book will help you focus on the skills and attitudes your daughters need to develop. Check out the Table of Contents here and a sample chapter of an Honest Woman. Ages 5 and up.

Brand new edition of Instruction in Righteousness!

This topical Bible for parents will help you use the Bible every time your children need instruction. Hundreds of Bible verses are organized according to 52 common types of misbehavior, along with numerous parenting ideas and suggestions.

The Ruby Doll

Ruby is a small pocket-size doll that you and your girls can make together. She is easilymade (even by those of you that declare yourselves uncrafty!) with pipe cleaners, wooden beads, felt, and yarn.

The kit includes:

The Young Lady of Valor coloring booklet, with all the text from Proverbs 31:10-31, accompanied by Doorposts-style illustrations. These simple drawings bring each verse down to “girl-level,” helping our daughters see practical ways to apply Proverbs 31 to their own young lives. Designed to color and assemble into a small, ribbon-tied booklet. The Virtuous Woman Bible study guide with an overview of Proverbs 31:10-31 and studies on “the law of kindness,” “the bread of idleness,” and “reaching forth our hands to the needy.”

Age 6 and up.

Beauty & the Pig teaches you how to use various Bible study methods as you discover what Scripture says about beauty and discretion. Studies walk you through different Bible study methods, including word, topic, verse, chapter, and book studies.
