To celebrate the big move to dkMommySpot.com, I’ve got some nice giveaways lined up. Today’s is quite special. I have here a copy of At Work in Life’s Garden, which is a beautiful book full of essays on parenting. The essays are written by some amazing authors I’m sure you’ve heard of – like Barbara Kingsolver, Anne Lamott, Alexandra Fuller, Scott Russsell Sanders, and a whole host of others.
What I loved about this book was the wide variety of experiences shared by the writers. Each story reflects their personal parenting anecdotes, and how those experiences have made their lives richer. I felt myself relating to some stories, grasping for advice from others. The book is full of humor, spiritual uplifts, encouragement, and tears.At Work in Life’s Garden, by Eastern Washington University Press, is one of those lovely books that looks and feels good, and although it’s an ideal gift book, it’s the kind of thing that once you hold it and flip through the pages, you want one for yourself too.I have a feeling this is the perfect item for dkMommy Spot’s first official giveaway. If there’s one thing we all have in common here, it’s that we all know we’ve got the most important job in the world: Helping to raise and mold another human being! You’ll find this sentiment reflected on every page of At Work in Life’s Garden.
To enter to win a copy, please leave a comment here telling me what you find most rewarding about being a mother, father, grandmother, or grandfather. I’ll draw a winner on Tuesday, February 19th, 2008. Once the winner has been contacted, I’ll post it here.
