Contest Info and Blog Tour: The Me Project

My apologies if the formatting is off on this post. We are still having contractors repair our home post-freezing pipes flood, and I do not have access to my desktop computer (and the flood ruined our laptop), so I am posting from a phone, which limits my options. Since I cannot type much with this access, I am posting the tour information. This was a fabulous book, and I hope you have the privilege of reading it! Please feel free to peruse the article Three Super Simple Kickstarts at your convenience :)

The author and KCWC (which sent me a complimentary copy of the book, but did not influence my opinion!) are generously holding a contest at the end of this tour. Please leave a comment here prior to March 4, and I will select one random commentor's name to forward to KCWC to be entered in the prize drawing. They will pool one entry from each participating blog and draw for the winner. The winner will be drawn and notified on March 7, 2011. The details of the giveaway prize are at the bottom of this post.
Book Summary
(San Jose, CA) Has that rush to make (and break) New Year’s resolutions already waned? According to Daniel Pink, author of Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us, taking small steps every day will not only help you stay committed to your goal, but will also help you ultimately achieve that goal when obstacles come up. Author Kathi Lipp wants you and your friends to live out those dreams—and have some fun along the way.
As women, we forget the goals and dreams of our younger years. The busyness of everyday life gets in the way. To-do lists replace goals. The Me Project provides women with fun and creative ways to bring back the sense of purpose and vitality that comes with living out the plans and dreams God has planted in our hearts. Kathi Lipp’s warm tone and laugh-out-loud humor motivates women to take daily steps toward intentional goals. The end result? We get back our lives and enjoy living in the confidence of a purposeful life in spite of our chaotic schedules.

This handy guide coaches women to do one simple thing toward achieving our goals each day for three weeks. A woman experiencing the exhilaration of a rediscovered life offers more as a wife, mother, friend, volunteer, career woman.
Finding the balance between living day-to-day with purpose while pursuing the passions God has placed in our hearts is a delicate pursuit. In this refreshing, insightful book, Kathi lays out a doable plan that makes sense and helps make our God-given dreams a reality. Never stop dreaming, because women who dare to dream do make the world a better place.
