Sweetening the Pot – A Casting Crowns Giveaway

Chrissy, the Queen of the M2M Blogroll, came up with a great idea to celebrate Fall amongst the ministry wives.  She gives the details here.  She has done such a great job encouraging community between us and I thought I would sweeten the pot for those of you who will play along!

My favorite band, Casting Crowns, has just released their new cd, “Come to the Well“.  It is amazing.  AMAZING.  Of course all of their records are but I’ve literally sobbed like a baby listening to this new one for the last two days.  One of the things I particularly appreciate about Crowns is the fact they are ministers themselves so they understand the life and get to me way down in the deepest cockles of my heart.  I also admire their gift in calling out the church without dishonoring her.  And I may have mentioned a time or seven, but I’ve asked Jesus to let me be able to sing like Megan Garrett when I get to heaven.  Lord knows it ain’t happening on this side of glory.  (I do, however, sing a mean bass line on ‘Where the Soul of Man Never Dies’.)

With that said, here’s the deal.  I am giving away TWO COPIES of this cd to ministry wives who participate on this post and in the Fall Photo Fun! ( This is not a paid endorsement and Casting Crowns do not know I exist.  I just like giving you things that I would like to win myself.)  If you don’t have any photos, don’t go away.  There are a couple of different ways to enter. Here’s how it is going to work:


FIRST way to enter:   Submit your name, your fall photo(s), blog name and blog url to m2mblogroll AT apreacherswife DOT com.

SECOND way to enter:  Visit at least five blogs on the M2M blogroll and leave a comment ON THIS POST ONLY telling us which ones you visited. Not sure where to start?  How about the featured ones here?

THIRD way to enter:  Sign up to receive email updates on the right-hand sidebar (trying to build up the mailing list since my feed was broken) and leave a separate comment ON THIS POST ONLY letting me know you have enrolled.

I will randomly select ONE winner from THIS POST ONLY Thursday, October 27 and announce on that day.  I will then select ONE winner from those who send in photos for the November 3rd Fall Photo feature and a winner will be randomly selected and announced on that day.

** Important Notes:  This particular giveaway is reserved for ministry wives whose blogs currently appear on the M2M Blogroll and wish to be spotlighted in the November 3rd edition of M2M Featured Blogs.  If your blog is not currently listed, no problem!  Simply request to be added – we would love to have you join!  If you are not a ministry wife, don’t feel left out.  I will be doing something special for you very soon. :)

** If you are ministry wife without a blog, you may still enter using options 2 or 3 above.

Clear as mud?  Okay!  Proof nothing has changed around here!

Let me leave you with two of my favorite church/ministry songs from the cd.  Have a great week!

This is called Spirit Wind. Senior/Preaching Pastor Wives, get ready to bawl.

City On A Hill. A beautiful challenge for The Church.
