...good read giveaway...

first, i would love for you to watch this video...


beautiful, right?  

curious about the song?  it's 'dream' by priscilla ahn.

my wonderful cousin (in law) wrote the book mentioned in this video.  as soon as it was released i had my hands on it and  i ate. it. up.  such a wonderful book.  i haven't found a book that looks at infertility and all it entails from an LDS perspective quite like this.  the way Kerstin speaks in this book will touch your heart.  whether you are in the throws of infertility, treatments, or if you have a loved one in a similar situation, it will offer priceless knowledge.



in fact, this book means so much to me, that i want you to have a chance at one here.  i am going to giveaway not one, but TWO copies of this wonderful book.  wanna know something neat?  Kerstin is going to sign both copies.  yup, you get an autographed copy of this amazing read.  it doesn't matter if you are personally going through infertility or not.  there is so much in this book that can be applied to any situation in life.  if you aren't in this situation yourself, chances are you know someone who is.  it can help open your eyes to their world, as well as help you support them in the best way possible.  there is so. much. good. in this book.
 
she means so much to me and has been an intricate part of my coming to terms and accepting my own infertility.  Kerstin has made me a better person.  the Lord knew that i would need her.  it's a bonus of marrying my studly.  

she is a rock star.
you can check out her website here.

I love how you are doing a give away. I'm not making the comment because I want the book I already have it. I just wanted to say that this book is wonderful. Kerstin was and is a great support for me. She has always been in my life but when I needed her the most she was there for me. I'm glad you have been able to find the same support in her as I have. I love ya McKenna you are wonderful, I know I don't tell you that but I think you are amazing.

I just saw this on the R House blog and it made me cry. If I don't win the giveaway, I'm buying the book anyway. It's going on my birthday list.

I'm already a follower (you have my e-mail) and I'm going to put a link on my blog.

I'm so glad you and Josh are included in the video.

Oh my word. I'm a few days behind because every time I checked blogs this week I was at school and couldn't watch the video. (Everything YouTube is blocked.) Finally this morning I watched it, and it brought me to tears. So excited for this book!
Also, it's your first giveaway - awesome! :)
