A Queenly Review and an Eternal Encouragement Giveaway

My daughter is all into PRINCESSES.  After all, she IS a princess.

Which makes my husband the king and me, well, it makes me the queen...

I know.  I'm really classy and elegant thanks to my Burger King crown.

So needless to say, I was immediately attracted to my newest Gabby Mom review which is a MP3 from Mrs. Lorrie Flem entitled "Keys to a Queenly Castle."  It's about the role of a wife and mother as queen of her home.   I really appreciated how she related to the command God gave for male and female to have dominion over the earth.
Boy, was it ever convicting and timely.  But of course, that's how most things are from Eternal Encouragement

Last Thursday, my husband lost his job.  It's been happening to a lot of people, so I'm sure there are other wives out there who are facing the same thing.  It hasn't even been a week, and people have already commented to me, "Well, maybe you should go out and get a job." 

I know they mean well.  And in a weak moment, if I weren't so "weak" physically right now, I might be tempted by it. 

But thanks to Lorrie's MP3, I remember that I'm "building a wall" and am too busy to come down!  She mentioned how Nehemiah was invited to "come down" by some important Arab men, but instead, he said, "...I am doing a great work and I cannot come down..." (Neh. 6:3).  I need to keep the vision of the great work God has for me here at home regardless of the chaos or temptation surrounding me!

Another MP3 that Lorrie made available for The Gabby Moms is "Attitude Adjustments".  I haven't even really gotten a chance to listen to it yet, because I was still processing all the information from being a QUEEN!

I am defintely going to listen to it, however.  I know my attitude is correct, but maybe it will help me point out what attitudes others need to adjust!  Pardon me now, while I go pull this log out of my own eye! (Matt. 7:3-5)


Now for the really fun part!  Mrs. Lorrie Flem is making one MP3 available as a giveaway.  Not only will it be free, but it will be one of your own choice.  That's right!  You can choose one of these I mentioned or another one of your choice.  Trust me.  You can't make a poor choice.

Here’s how to enter: (please complete all in ONE comment-one entry per person)

1. Click here to chose the MP3 file you’d like to win

2.  Go to www.TheGabbyMoms.com and post a comment on which one you’ve chosen. (The link for comments is under the Facebook and Twitter icons.) 

3.  Make sure to also comment that you found out about it from me.  (Betsy or MrsPriceisRight)

4. Leave your contact email.  After all, I think you would want to know if you win, right? :-)

5. Winner will be chosen on Saturday, June 18th via random.org.  You will need to claim your prize within 48 hours or an alternate winner will be selected.

I recieved these MP3s free in exchange for my honest opinion.  No other compensation was provided.

Nice pic of your princess and the "Queen" :)

I like your referral to Nehemiah...so true, thanks!

I thought you said you were overdone! Way to get your post up early! :) I love that quote--"STAY ON YOUR WALL!" God has been continually speaking to me about this. I think he is moving me to a new phase in life and out of my home show business. You stay on your wall, Betsy! God cares for the sparrows. He cares for you, too!

Jenny said...

OH, and PS I LOVE your fabulous crown!

Victoria said...

Cute post! Love the Burger King crown. My son has one just like it! :-)

Yes, that Nehemiah passage really ministered, didn't it?!?

Thanks for stopping by ladies.

You know, Princess Di was the "People's Princess." I think I must be "The Royalty of the Rabble"!!! :-D

I'm so thankful to hear that you are really committed to staying on that wall where the Lord has put you. Yes, sometimes it's tempting to do something else, but what you are doing is life-changing to the next generation!

Thanks for the encouragement, Julieanne. We'll hand each other bricks and watch each other's back while we build our walls! ;-)

Love your princess and queen pictures :) Great review! Sorry to hear about your dh's job loss. It is such a tough economy right now. Praying for you!

mrspriceisright said...

Thanks, Carie. I love that picture of my princess, too. It's actually from 3 years ago, but it's so "princess-y" I can't help but love it!

Thanks for your prayers. Definitely needed and appreciated.
