O Radiant Dawn Giveaway – Comment to Enter

As you read this, I’m driving home from my Thanksgiving vacation. Even though I’m pre-posting this on Tuesday night, I already know that when Sunday morning rolls around I am bound to be cranky. I’ll have said goodbye to my precious son Eric and shipped him back off to college, and Adam, Greg and I will have a seven hour drive ahead of us. The party will be over, and there will be work waiting for me when I get home.

So to cheer myself up, we’re going to have a contest today. Five lucky winners will be randomly selected to receive signed copies of my new Advent book O Radient Dawn: 5-Minute Prayers Around the Advent Wreath. Here’s some information about the book:

O Radiant Dawn is a daily prayer book created for use around an Advent wreath in Catholic households of any configuration. It contains twenty-eight devotional services, each designed to last only five minutes—an achievable goal for busy families. The single-page service includes: 1) a simple candle lighting, 2) a brief scripture passage paired with a reflection question for adults and older children and one for younger children, 3) silence, and 4) a closing prayer. Rooted in scriptural images of light, O Radiant Dawn can be used in family prayer year after year. With its many Advent wreath prayers, O Radiant Dawn is an ideal gift for parish-wide distribution and faith-sharing groups. It can also be used as a part of an Advent retreat.

Newsflash: Order my new Advent booklet O Radiant Dawn for only $1 when you order 10 copies or more. Use the promo code catholicmom12 when placing your order at www.avemariapress.com to get this great deal. Advent will be here before you know it! Offer expires 12/15/12.

To enter to win a copy of O Radiant Dawn, simply leave a comment below by 8:00 am on Tuesday, November 27, 2012. Five winners will be randomly selected and the booklets will be sent out immediately for you to enjoy on next Sunday, when we begin Advent.

Update: Our randomly selected winners — Angie, Mary, Bonnie, Jennifer and Dee — have been notified by email. I thank all of you for participating in this contest and for your support for O Radiant Dawn.
