The 10 Day Give: DAY ONE!

October 1, 2012

The concept behind the 10 Day Give is to kick off a season of intense gratefulness and awareness of God’s provision and presence in our lives by giving.  Giving time, giving money, giving possessions, giving special gifts.  Just GIVE!  Give intentionally for 10 days!  Will you join us????

We’re going to kick off this week with a giveaway of a book!  But not just any book!  We want to give one special reader our FAVORITE book.  The problem is, we couldn’t narrow down which book is our favorite.  So, we need your help!

Take our poll on the sidebar and tell us which book you’d like to win.  In case you’re not familiar with these gems, here’s a little taste of each:

The Christian Philosophy of Food by Peter Bringe

“A great confusion reigns among Christians when it comes to food. Ask ten Christians what they think of food, and you’ll probably get eleven answers. And yet we eat several times each day, so we are forced to choose something. The question arises from many Christians who want to live out their faith in real life, ‘How then shall we eat?'” –Peter Bringe

Holy Cows and Hog Heaven by Joel Salatin

“You, as a food buyer, have the distinct privilege of proactively participating in shaping the world your children will inherit.”  –Joel Salatin

Food For Thought and Thoughtful Food by Chef Francis Foucachon

“Sitting down together for meals at the same time each day, as a regular way of life, not only bring peace and stability to a family, it also provides a built-in venue for everyone in which communication can occur.  Tensions and miscommunication don’t have time to build up.  You don’t have to call everyone into the living room to say, ‘OK.  Family time!  Look me in the eyes.  We’re going to communicate!’ Instead, time together as a family happens naturally every day at meals.”  Chef Foucachon

Year of Plenty by Craig Goodwin

“We are the ones who try to get our heads on straight in this mixed-up world by following Jesus’ instructions to look at the birds of the air and consider the lilies of the field.  We are the ones who carry today the present hope that in Christ things are held together and the future promise that God is redeeming all things, ‘making everything new’…”  –Craig Goodwin

So, the book with the most votes is the book we’ll give away!

You can enter to win it by leaving us a comment telling us what your favorite book is in this genre of food, conservationism, and sustainable living!  If we haven’t listed your favorite, go ahead and tell us what your favorite is!  We’ll choose a winner using a randomizer and announce it on Tuesday morning!

And keep checking back each day for a completely new giveaway!  And considering joining us in intentional giving for the next 10 days!

      Wait. Is it that we comment with our own personal already-read favorite? Or comment to say which of these we would best like to win?

        I’ve reworded it. You can tell us either what your favorite is from our list or your favorite that we have not listed. 🙂

    While I am a big Joel Salatin fan, I believe I will vote for Year of Plenty. It seems as if it contains a message of faith present in all aspects of life. As I’m currently seeking a centered, faith-filled, intentional, peaceful way of being/living, this one seems timely! 🙂

    I love all of Joel Salatins books, but since I haven’t read any of the others I am voting for Year of Plenty.

    I would like the Year of Plenty book, but I think I may need to read Food for Thought and Thoughtful Food! 🙂 I have some of Joel Salatin’s books, and I do enjoy them as well.

    I have heard of Joel Salatin & would love to read his book. I don’t know if it’s in exactly the same genre, but I love Carla Emery’s ‘encyclopaedia of country living’.
