Celebrating My "Blog-iversary" with INCREDIBLE prizes!

Tomorrow is the second anniversary of the day I started this blog.

I remember how excited and nervous I was when I posted my first post about the Widow of Zarephath and how giddy it made me to get comments on it. I guess things haven't changed too much since then because I still get nervous when I post something and I still get giddy with comments... maybe even more so now.

What a wonderful two years it has been for me. I feel like I have grown so much in my testimony of Jesus Christ and in the divinity of women. It is becoming clearer to me just how much God really does love and respect women. In addition I have made so many wonderful friends, "met" amazing people, and learned so much from your wonderful insights. Thank you so much for reading this blog. I can't tell you how much it means to me. You have enriched my life in a way that is indescribable. May God bless each of you!

Now for the good part-- through the generosity of some very talented women-- I have the great joy of giving away some AMAZING prizes in celebration of my blog-iversary. I wish I could give each one of you something but there a few different prizes so you have a good chance of winning something. Here they are:

Grand Prize



The lucky winner of the Grand Prize will get a 20x24 custom, professionally giclee print on canvas of Maren Scott's painting "My Beloved Son" worth over a $150. Here is some of the information Maren sent me about her painting,
"On the first "frame" in the painting that looks like carved wood there are pomegranates. Golden pomegranates adorned the hems of the robes of the high priests who served in the temple, along with small bells. Also the pomegranates are symbolic of fertility and blessing. The second carved row is taken from a fragment from the palace of Herod. The white "marble" corner stones are a design from a first century ossuary or bone box, these were used to collect the bones after a corpse has decayed and re-bury them. These boxes where then placed again in niches in a family tomb. The ossuary design is symbolic of death and resurrection. The stone surround is that Christ is the firm foundation, the cross in the stone work behind Mary and the Child is the future torment. Even fabric of Mary's tunic is accurate, it is from a fragment of a first century textile found in the Judean desert."
Are you excited about this yet? I really wish this wasn't my blog so I could win it. I've fallen in love with this painting! Maren does beautiful work and you can see more of it at her Etsy shop, her blog www.marenscott.blogspot.com, or at her vintage Esty store. She does custom prints of this painting and you can go here to order one.

1st Prize



The first prize winner will get a print mounted on wood (8 x 12 inches x 1/2 inch thick) of Flor Larios' "Nativity Star". To see the actual one she will send click here. Here is what Flor told me about her painting:
"To create this collage I used a high quality print of my original painting "Nativity Star". Mixed media techniques using acrylics, pastels, gold leaf ink, vintage mica flakes, and stains for the background. Decorated with small designs created with a wood burner. It has a beautiful antique rustic finish with tiny crackles. It comes with a wall hanger on the back. Signed and dated on the back by me, Flor Larios 2010."
Flor does amazingly beautiful work and you can see more of it at her Etsy store, her facebook page and her blog Flor Larios Art.

You should go over and see my other favorite painting by her and some of her Frida Kahlo paintings... I think they are even better than Frida Kahlo's :)

2nd Prize




The second place winner will get this beautiful vinyl wall art from from iTwaddle.
"Our vinyl lettering is adhesive pre-spaced lettering that can quickly and easily be placed on walls, boards, cars, glass, clocks, mirrors, plates... the possibilities are endless! Our rub-on wall lettering is easy to apply and just as easy to remove. It looks as if it was professionally painted on and its washable! We have pre-made layouts and we do custom-made layouts."
I was so impressed with her vinyls. She has some really cute ones! Visit her Etsy store here to see more.

3rd Prize



The third place winner will get a $15 gift certificate to Our Happy Home.

She makes these beautiful mini fabric covered Books of Mormon ( 3.5" X 5") that have a magnetic flap. They are the perfect size to throw in your purse, diaper bag, pocket or back pack or when you travel. They each have a coordinating ribbon book mark with handmade fabric covered buttons or cute brads to hold it in place. Custom designs are available.

I am so excited about these little Books of Mormon. I am telling my husband to get me one for Christmas-- it would be the PERFECT stocking stuffer, especially for us scripture nerds!

  1. I feel blessed to have found your blog. I hope it is not to late for me to take the "Women in the Scriptures Challenge"?!

    I love Esther. Her Strength and Faith amaze me each time a read about her. I find that when I am feeling low and weak. That if I read her story, I start to feel strong again. Especially when I want to deal with people who are not nice. I want to deal fairly and justly with others. Esther is a great example of that.

    Will fallow you soon on facebook!

  4. I have a lot of favorite women in the scriptures. I think the one I'm drawn to most right now is Ruth. I'm a convert and like her, I pretty much gave up my family and former expression of faith.

  8. Hey Heather. Congrats on how big and awesome your blog is getting! My favorite woman of the scriptures is definitely Eve. I realize that not everyone may agree with me on this one. But I believe that she knew what she was doing. She made a difficult choice when she chose to leave the Garden of Eden, and I admire her for her bravery and desire for learning and motherhood.

  12. I love your blog and have been following it for almost 6 months! I have been doing the women in the scriptures challenge since you introduced it and I have grown so much in my faith. It has helped me to become a better mother. I love to do my reading in the morning before the children wake up. It really starts off my day right!! My favorite woman in the scriptures has always been Naomi- she is a woman of real courage and strenth in adversity! I will linke your giveaway in my blog. Keep up the good work, I truly love your blog!

  13. I'm a follower! And I'm posting a link to this blog on facebook.

    I have to say, my favorite woman in the scriptures right now (though this may be subject to change) is Esther. She is an example to me of a woman who had a firm testimony of a loving Father in Heaven - she would have to in order to have the courage she had.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Do you want separate comments for each entry or can we do them all in one?

    It's a tough choice, but Mary, mother of Jesus, is my favorite woman in the scriptures. She's such an amazing example of faith in very unusual circumstances.

    I "became a follower" on google friend connect (I was following on my blogger reading list, but only for a few weeks now)

    I "like"d you on facebook.

    I shared the link to this post on facebook.

    I posted about the giveaway on my blog (http://birthunplugged.blogspot.com/2010/09/women-in-scriptures-blog-is-having.html)

    I think I'm going to start the Women in the Scriptures challenge. I will post again to let you know how it is going before the deadline!

  16. Hard to pick one woman, but I think Mary, Jesus' mother. Growing up somewhat Catholic, I have heard the most about her and can't help but, think about her every Christmas season.

    ReplyDelete
  17. ps, forgot to add that--saying this somewhat tounge-in-cheeck--one of my favorites is Jael. Because I thought she was so cool for putting a stake through a guy's head. Well, mostly for breaking the mold of Old Testament females. I remember drawing a picture of her story in Seminary.

    ReplyDelete
  18. My favorite woman in the scriptures in Sariah, Nephi's mother. She was the first woman I saw as a "real" woman.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm taking the Women in the Scriptures challenge! I've really enjoyed how I notice the women in the background more than I did before and can see their importance.

  23. Sariah, because she was faithful and supportive to her husband as they journeyed in the wilderness and to the Promised Land. I have felt as my husband has been both a father and a full time employee and student through the years, as well as serve in his church callings, that I have learned to be supportive of him in what he has been asked to do, even if it feels like a hard task. We have read the Book of Mormon as a family many times and the beginning is filled with so many lessons about faith and obedience to the things the Lord has asked. We are trying to pattern our lives after that example. And many times it does feel hard and we feel lost in our own wilderness. But we are going to tough it out together, just like Sariah and Lehi! (hopefully none of our kids will go astray though...is that bad to hope for that? I sure hope not!)

  25. Hi Heather
    I am a follower. One of my favorite women in the scritures, has no name,but is referred to as "Daughter" by Jesus. She is the woman with the issue of blood for twelve years. I love her anonimity,that she wanted not to be seen but to be healed by her faith.So she only allowed herself just to touch the hem of Jesus's garment.She didn't need to speak or even assert herself. I love her,I have been her at times in my life and I have benefited from the healing power of Jesus Christ.To be called daughter is a privilege beyond all. Congradulations Heather, keep up the good work.

  26. My favorite woman in the scriptures would have to be Mary, the mother of Jesus. I try to think of my reaction to her circumstance and sadly it doesn't normally come even close to how Mary handled it. She's an inspiration of how to deal with special circumstances using her faith. smilin_chick@hotmail.com

    Heather, I don't get on your blog often enough but when I do, I'm always learning and feel lifted up and taught. I love your strong passion about women and mothers and birth and just everything. I think it shows what kind of a person you are that you are always challenging yourself by learning more about women in the scriptures, etc. I admire you.

    by the way, those pieces you are giving away are all beautiful and very fitting for your blog. And I especially like the bofm cover...did you know that those smaller sets of scripture were made mainly for military? You have to get special ok to get those at least...a few years ago you did. They come in real handy in a diaper bag though so I encourage all to get them if they can.I love the cover for it--what a great idea since the actual covers don't stand up well to much use. I would love to have one for Rodney's when he deploys next.

  31. Ruth! Ruth is my favorite.
    I even named my Etsy site for her:
    www.WhitherThouGoest.etsy.com

    I've always admired Ruth---her dedication to family, her nerve, her strength, but I admire her even more after reading your post.
    I, too, went where I felt I was led, and sort of proposed to my husband too!

  34. Just found the blog. Going to look at the past postings!
    My favorite woman in the scriptures is hard to pinpoint. So many are favorites because of special qualities they exhibit at a time I need them! Ruth is near the top because of her dedication, charity and unselfish behavior.

    ReplyDelete
  35. My favourite woman from the Bible? Mary, Mother of Jesus.

    ReplyDelete
  36. So glad I saw this giveaway on FLor's blog! :) I must say Mary, the Mother of God is my favorite woman in the scriptures. To say she was an amazing woman is just an understatement... she was chosen to be the Mother of Jesus.

    ReplyDelete
  37. First... I want to say that I love your blog. A friend emailed me a post last week and ever since then I have been reading your current posts/archives and quite enjoying it. I really loved your post on the importance of birth, and also the recent post about mothers and careers. I thought the former in particular was very thoughtfully stated and you shared some quotes I had never heard before which I always appreciate. I will be putting a link to you on my blog soon... but with one that I am working on right now so it probably won't be there in time for the give-away.

    As for that though... I am a fan, and I will say that my favorite woman in the scriptures is Mary the Mother of Jesus. I love to think of her, and do so with extreme reverence and love. What a tremendous responsibility was hers. I feel connected to her when I read that she "kept all these things in her heart." I have many experiences related to my own children that I keep in my heart too.

    Thank you for this beautiful blog. I probably won't comment often, but I will be reading.

    Toodles.

  38. Hi! This is a wonderful giveaway! My fav. woman in scripture is by far the Blessed Mother. Her strength through all the trials she had to endure with her son gives me strength to get through my little troubles.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm gonna say JAEL 'cause I'm feelin' a bit mean. (Bad news will do that to you.)

    Yeah, she's the gal who nailed a tent spike through some guy's head.

  40. My favorite woman in the scriptures is Hannah. Before we got pregnant with Stephen, her story gave me a lot of comfort, and it still is a great reminder to me that our son is a blessing from our Heavenly Father and that, like Hannah, He didn't forget me. It really inspires me to try harder each day to teach Stephen of the Lord and His word. It also is a good reminder to me of what a great husband I have---Hannah's husband (his name escapes me at the moment) loved Hannah more than anything, even though she couldn't bear him a child, and Josh was the same way with me---very loving and listened to my tears and sorrows and stood by me through it all.

  46. My favorite woman in the scriptures is Sariah. Her faith in following Lehi into the wilderness and her love for her sons are two qualities I hope to emulate.

  47. My favorite is Mary because she is was so strong and inspirational.

  48. My favorite story is the story of Rachel and Jacob. I know we often talk about the waiting and working that Jacob did for seven years to get Rachel -- but what about the waiting that Rachel did for those same seven years, only to have her sister marry him first. OUCH!

    But take that story one step further:
    She was barren for years – I don’t know how many exactly, but enough that the first ten of Jacob’s twelve sons were born before she had her two. Leah’s first born had the birthright, which couldn’t have made Rachel’s barren condition any easier for her to endure. Still, Rachel taught her sons to always put the Lord first, love Him, know that His ways are best, and do His will, and then you can rest assured that all things that happen to you are right. The scriptures don’t exactly say this, but Joseph’s life does.

    What the Lord knew in Rachel’s situation, what Rachel simultaneously didn’t know, was that Reuben would transgress and lose the birthright, which would then go to the eldest son of the second wife, not the second son of the first or the first son of the third or fourth wives. And Joseph, though eleventh in his family, was born at the EXACT time he needed to, to the EXACT parents he needed to in order to accomplish the EXACT mission he needed to.
    His life is a tribute to his mother and father, particularly his mother and her teachings – lessons she learned in the 10-14 years of trusting in the Lord even when things didn’t make sense.

    She might have rebelled, she might have lost faith, she might have murmured – who knows, maybe she did all of those things – but in the end, she came out strong, SHE was the difference between Joseph and Benjamin and all of Jacob’s other sons. And HER first-born son accomplished amazing things for the Lord.

    I think Rachel is an amazing woman, and I love ALL the things about man's love, God's love, parenthood, faith, and the Plan of Salvation that we learn from her story!

  51. Hello, Heather, you have a beautiful blog. My favorite woman in the scriptures is Mother Mary. She is my example on how we should be as mothers, and she is still caring for us up to now! But I made a canvas of the other Mary once, the one who spilled her perfume and used her hair to clean Jesus' feet. She 's my example on how to love with our all!

  54. Currently, my favorite woman in the scriptures is Emma Smith. I'm amazed by her strength. Her story, and the stories of many women in the scriptures are so sad to me, but remind me to be strong, courageous, and hopeful like they were.

    Also, the talents of the artists who created your prizes are incredible!

  56. I have too many to pick a favorite, but I really love Hannah. I love the story so much that I named my daughter after her (plus I really like the name). I love knowing that our children are not our own. They belong to higher, holier, and more perfect parents. This has been a good reminder for me, especially with my Hannah.

  60. Hee. I like how many people said Jael. There are so many awesome women in the old testament; they're so full of goodness and passion and strength. I also think of Ruth, Esther, Rahab, Eve... getting out and getting things done, pursuing personal relationships with God. It's weird how their example got lost in historical Christianity. I'm glad we're aware of it again now.

  72. Heather, what a great blog you have! I do enjoy reading it and hope to read it more often. My favorite (at least for now) woman in the scriptures is probably Eve, I think she probably had a lot of faith and courage, and that is something I really look up to as a mother!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I love your blog! One of my favorite women in the scripture is Sariah, Lehi's wife. I feel like I can relate to her a lot not because my 18 month old is going to slay a large man named Laban, but maybe because we both have boys and are always on the move like her family.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Such wonderfully spiritual paintings.

    ReplyDelete
  75. My favorite woman in Scripture is Mary, mother of God. If she had not said "Yes" to carrying our Lord, then who? Like Mary, we have to be willing to say Yes to carry the indwelling spirit of Christ. I'll follow your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  76. My favorite woman in the scriptures (currently) is Sariah. Actually it would be the women not mentioned by name in the beginning of the Book of Mormon. Nephi's Wife, and his goodly brother's wives. I can not imagine the roughness of their trials, giving birth and raising children while trying to get to the Americas. Incredible.

  77. Martha! Because she is me--and no matter how many times I temporarily focus on the wrong things, just like Martha in John 12, I continue to serve.

    With that said, I would like to enter your drawing and have done three things:

    1. Became a follower of your blog.

    2. Mentioned your drawing on FB. http://www.facebook.com/#!/profile.php?id=574316162

    3. And would like to share that my favorite woman in the scriptures is Eve. She was very noble and strong and I think of Eve when I am stressed as a mom or concerned that the choices I make aren't maybe what Heavenly Father wants me to do.

    Thanks again! I can't wait to read up on all I've missed here. You are amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  81. My two favorite women are Eve and Mary. I can't imagine how hard life was for Eve and how much faith she had to have to live life outside of the garden after living inside. Mary is so humble and I look up to her because she was a person that the Lord trusted HIS child to. She was his mother. He knew that she would do what she needed to do to protect Him and teach Him about who He was.

  82. I love Sariah she is so strong and supportive of her husband and her children.

    I am doing your challenge. I have loved looking for women in the scriptures. I love this new approach in reading the scriptures.

  85. I forgot to say who my favorite woman in the scriptures is... well there are a lot but I just read about Abish and how courageous she was. So for now... Abish is my favorite.

  86. One of my favorite women in the scriptures is Hannah. What faith it must have taken to promise to give that child to the Lord if only He would bless her with one.

    I don't know how she gave Samuel up when he was so young. She loved him, but loved the Lord more. She trusted that the Lord would fill her heart and He did.

    I just found your blog recently and I'm so grateful. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and testimony.

  88. Sorry I'm a day late with this, but I wanted to let you know how the women in the scriptures challenge is going, even if I don't get an extra entry for it, because I'm loving it! I'm doing it for the Book of Mormon. It has helped me see the scriptures in a different light and really think about the lives of these real women and really identify with them, when I didn't think much about them before because they aren't really written as the main characters--but they were still amazing women and role models. I have been thinking that the story of 1st Nephi told from the perspective of Nephi's wife would make a really good historical fiction novel.
