Some of you long-time readers might remember when six years ago, my best friend Angie Smith and I launched a book club called Bloom. Since that time, thousands of women have joined us as we have read encouraging, life-changing books.
Today marks a special day because we are announcing our final Bloom study. We have prayed for many months and feel that it is time to step down from leading studies. But this last study is a pretty special one. Take a few minutes to watch this video of our announcement (yes, we cry) and about the last selection.
What a joy to end such a beautiful chapter going through The Fringe Hours with women from around the world. What I especially love about this particular Bloom is that we invited three friends of mine to join us around a table to discuss the book's chapters – my friend Sarah, a married mom of 4 (we went to college together); my friend Tobi, a married mom of 2 and pediatrician; and my friend Leigh, a single working professional.

Also, if you haven't pre-ordered The Fringe Hours yet, you might want to do so from DaySpring because they have 500 autographed copies for sale! Yes, in-between newborn nursing sessions, I sat on my couch, autographed books and prayed for the women who would read them.
DaySpring has the book competitively priced at just $10.99 and you can get free shipping when you buy two and use the code BLOOMBOOK. Think about a friend who might be blessed by the message of making time for her, or maybe even your Mom for Mother's Day. A signed first-edition of a book is sure to be a special gift!
In honor of Bloom launching today, we are going to continue the Book Launch Party fun by giving away three Kindle Fires to three lucky winners.
In the research I conducted, the number one activity women wanted to do in their fringe hours was read. When I got a Kindle, I found I read more because I always had a book with me.
