Win On a Someday by Roxanne Henke

This contest is open to Canadian and USA residents ONLY. To enter your name for a chance to win this book simply read the description of the book and post a comment about either a dream that you have for your future, or you can post about plans that you had that never materialized. Your choice. I'll choose a winner through random selection next Sunday, March 29th.



About the book:


Claire Westin has spent her adult life being a wife, mother, and college professor. The last thing she expects as she nears retirement status is to have a whole new career open before her.

Her husband, Jim, has spent his life growing his chain of grocery stores. He has a grand plan to restore an old Dodge Charger...someday when he retires. Someday soon, he hopes.

If his son Drew would only agree to take over the family business. Drew, however, has plans of his own. And Claire is busy climbing the ladder of her new career. She can't bear the thought that she might have to say "no" to the exciting new opportunities she's pursuing and simply sit around and watch her husband tinker on an old car.

What happens when plans collide? When dreams don't materialize? How do you know when your work is done? Or is it ever?

On a Someday asks the big questions of life...and tries to answer them.

My thoughts:

I have enjoyed every book penned by Roxanne Henke that I've read (about four or five of them) so this is no doubt just as good as the rest.

I have a dream of owning a Children's Book store like Meg Ryan on ..... oh shoot, what's the name of that movie where she competes with Tom Hanks from FOX books?!? Anywho... that is my dream!

My dream would be to travel to Kenya and work in an orphanage there.

Another dream is to help deliver shoeboxes with Operation Christmas Child!

My dream is to see my children all happy and thriving, no matter what they do for a living. I don't care if they are janitors, or lawyers, as long as they are happy!

I'd also love to go to Africa and take care of babies with AIDS.

Thanks

I have a dream of writing as a career and in doing so being able to help other aspiring authors recognize their potential and work toward their dreams. And I'd love to be entered in the contest! Thanks! And oh, Amber, if you're reading this, that movie was You've Got Mail.

Hi...I'd like to be entered in your giveaway. I'd love to read this book! Thank you.
My dream was always to travel and help children all over the world that are sick or just need love in their life.

After graduating from Bible college many years ago, I went on to graduate school to get my Master's degree, with the dream of teaching music in a Bible college. This dream never materialized, as God obviously had other plans for me, but I've worked in the music ministry for going on 45 years now.

Roxanne Henke is one of my favorite writers, so thanks for the chance to win a copy of her book.

My dream is to see Egypt. I have always been fascinated by all the architecture and history, and have wanted to go as long as I can remember.

Thank you for the entry.

I have wanted to have a Christian "Dear Abby" or columnist section in the secular newspapers, giving answers that are from Scripture vs. the daily answers you read today that don't correspond with God's will or ways. I'd want it in the secular newspaper because I feel that Christians are the only ones that usually read the Christian newspapers. I want the non-Christians to hear what God has to say.

I have a dream that my daughter and son-in-law (that we help out with money, and bills)will soon do better so my husband can retire. We would also like to open a little business of our own. Maybe someday.
