A good start in 2014

 **I am extending the giveaway until January 11, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. (Estonian Time)

Happy New Year, friends!  Doesn't it seem like the years fly by faster each year?  The year 2013 is now over and a whole new year is ahead of us.  I want 2014 to be the best year ever in my personal life, family life, walk with God, and service for the Lord - don't you?

I thought it would be fun to have a giveaway as we welcome a new year. 

 How would you like to win a new book
Two years ago, when More Than Just A Savior was "hot off the press", I held my first blog giveaway.  Since then I've welcomed many more readers to my blog and would like for another one of my many readers to have a chance to win their own copy of this great book.  If you already have this book, you could try to win it and give it as a gift to encourage a family member, friend, or fellow Christian.  If you don't have this book, it would definitely be a nice addition to your library.  I know I will be reading my copy again this year.

 My brother, Missionary Stephen Benefield, is the author of More Than Just A Savior.

  "Sheep never outgrow their need for daily leadership from the shepherd"

Stephen and his family have been missionaries in Phnom Penh, Cambodia since the Fall of 2000.  When they first arrived they worked with vetern missionaries while learning the culture and language.  Within a couple of years, they started the Good News Baptist Church.  God is using this family to do a great work in Cambodia.  Hundreds have been saved and many baptized under their ministry.  Scores of lives have been changed because this dear family has given their lives to share the Good News of salvation to the lost people of Cambodia.  Their family has faced their share of problems, discouragement, heartache, and trials, but through it all they have remained faithful.

"The most important work, and the first work, is a work that is done on the inside."

A couple of years ago Stephen wrote a book -  More Than Just A Savior ~ Every Christian's 10 Wonderful Relationships With God.  This book will challenge and encourage you to develop or deepen your relationship with Christ.  I am confident that this book will be a blessing to anyone who reads it.

"Our flesh will betray us into enemy hands if we give it even the slightest opportunity." 

Someone will receive a FREE could be YOU!

"Christians who live in stubbornness and rebellion are disrespecting their King and wasting a precious relationship that they have with God."

  7. I enjoy your blog so much, Rachel. It is a great inspiration to me as a mother. One of my goals this year is to be the kind of Godly mother my children need. Thanks for the give-away. I want to get the book one way or the other! Sounds like a good one. Maybe I'll buy it secretly before my Hubby's next birthday. :) By the way, thanks for posting that picture of the Benefields. We met them while we were on deputation in CA at Pastor Ray's church in Napa. A very Godly family. I was amazed to see how their children have grown! Children grow up on the mission field when you haven't seen them in a long time.
