Kristen Welch contacted me about being part of the launch team for her new book, Rhinestone Jesus: Saying Yes to God When Sparkly, Safe Faith is No Longer Enough, and I immediately started planning the party!

I’ve been counting down the days to PARTY with you and host my 1st ever blog book party! I grew up in a family of author’s! Throughout the years, my parents and my hubby and every single one of my siblings and even their wives have published books. I’ve had the opportunity to publish four children’s books! It’s a grueling and extraordinary experience to write a book! There are a many, many, many details that happen behind the scenes that a person strolling through Barns and Noble has no idea! It’s probably better that way.

This week, I’m giving away five copies of Rhinestone Jesus! One winner will be randomly selected each day: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday! Seriously…I’m so pumped!

Here's My Video Rhinestone Jesus Book Review!

Meet The Guest of Honor: Kristen Welch

During our adoption of Zoie, one of my adoption friends encouraged me to read her twin sister’s blog saying…it’s kinda a big deal. That’s when I started reading, We Are THAT Family and it quickly became one of my favorite places to go. I have loved watching her journey as a struggling mom (aren’t we all) having the courage to say yes to God in her mess. God turned her ordinary into something extraordinary.  What an honor joining her on this crazy adventure trekking through mommyhood madness, marriage restoration, loving big in Kenya and serving refugees in her community!

Y’all this girl is CRAZY! I love crazy. Kristen has millions of people stop by her blog and runs her nonprofit, Mercy House, which rescues pregnant girls in extreme poverty supported by bloggers. That’s crazy, too.

I’m pumped to celebrate the release of her new book, Rhinestone Jesus with you!

I want you to see past these gorgeous faces full of hope and a future and understand how against all odds, a broken girl with a broken past said yes to God in a most unlikely place. I want you to see that your small every day yes matters so much more than you think it does. – Kristen

What’s Rhinestone Jesus About?

Rhinestone Jesus is the story of one woman’s journey from comfortably living a safe, “good-girl” faith that didn’t cost much, to realizing that God was daring her to say yes to a bolder, more authentic, more dangerous way. This story of spiritual adventure throws the doors wide open for any woman who’s ever thought of herself as “just a mom.” Kristen will inspire and empower you to say yes to God right where you are—and stand amazed at how your life will shine. You can check out the Rhinestone Jesus book page here.
