I’ve got a bunch of little things for you today, including some announcements (and some inspiration!)

Do You Read This Blog Through Google Reader?

If you do, you should know that Google Reader will disappear on Monday. Basically, Google doesn’t want to help people or encourage people to read blogs on readers or through email, because then you can’t see the ads on the blogs, and Google makes a lot of money off of ads. So it’s understandable from their point of view, I suppose, but it’s really a pain for everyone else!
So you have a few options. You can subscribe to my blog to get the posts by email (just choose the mail option), or you can set up a feedly account (they’re very similar to Google Reader). I really want to keep all my readers, so I hope you choose something! And remember, I do post all my posts up on Facebook, so come on over there, too.

Congratulations to My Winners!

I hosted my giveaway post last week, giving out three wonderful prizes. The winners have all been notified and are in the process of getting their prizes, but here they are!

Denita won $25 towards my new store! If you haven’t looked at it yet, I encourage you to head on over. I’ve got lots more available than you would think. Yes, there are my books, but I also have audio downloads (so you can listen to some of my talks using your iPod), printables for Bible memory verses, some church resources to plan your next conference, and more. I’ve even got homeschooling resources. Head on over!

Ann won the Lilla Rose flexi clip:
If you didn’t win, but you’d really like one (they’re quite inexpensive, and high quality, so they last a long time), talk to consultant Laura!

Sherry S. won the ArtOnLeaf wall art (where you can put your favorite Scripture on a leaf):

Didn’t win? Check them out at ArtonLeaf.com.

Helping out a Tornado Community

Recently I gave my Girl Talk presentation (based on The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex) to a MOPS group in Moore, Oklahoma via Skype.

We had a wonderful time!

But a few weeks later that community was devastated by a tornado. Everyone from the group is fine, and their homes are reparable. But several children in the extended MOPS community lost their lives.

Now they’re trying to win Coca Cola’s $100,000 prize to rebuild their local park. Can you go vote for them?

Just enter zip code 73160, and type in the name Veteran’s Park.

Thanks so much!

Swimsuit Angst

Are you Weeping and Wailing over Swimsuits this Summer?
J from Hot, Holy and Humorous writes a great, practical post on how to go swimsuit shopping.
Speaking of swimsuits, I really love these vintage ones from Modcloth. They’re stylish, they don’t ride up the butt (and provide more coverage), and are more modest than normal swimsuits. But because they’re so different, they still make you really fashionable!

Marriage Pinterest Party

Finally, I leave you with this inspiration:
