A Give-Away!… because: Keeping Christ AS Christmas – the e-book is officially published!

… And to celebrate and thank you for your prayers and support, I’m giving away 3 copies this weekend! 

I can hardly believe it is finally here – alive and on the web!  To buy the book, head over to the Keeping Christ AS Christmas web page by clicking here

If e-book purchasing is new to you, this is how it works:

The book is available in three forms:

PDF version (for those who want to download it to a computer to read)

Epub version (for those who want to download it into any reader – Nook, Kindle, Sony, i-pad, etc. The book is for sale on all major reader and e-publishing websites.)

Kindle version (for those who want it specifically formatted for their Kindles. The button links specifically to Amazon.com.)

Important to know (for my dear reader friends who have admitted to not being too tech-savvy):  When you click on the version you wish to purchase on www.ChristASChristmas.com, you will be directed either to the Amazon or Barnes and Noble site or to the book page on a website called Smashwords. 

The Epub and PDF versions are only available through Smashwords.  To buy the Epub or PDF, you’ll need to “join” Smashwords with your info.  It is a completely safe and trustworthy site (just as are Amazon and Barnes and Noble). You’ll enter your e-mail address, then you’ll need to create a “screen name”. {Don’t be scared.  Choose a name unique to you.  For example: JenniferSmellingCoffeeWalker.  Or MaryGrandmaElla.  Be sure to write the name down so you won’t forget it.} Next, you’ll need to create and enter a password, and enter your name.  You’ll then mark if you are over 18, and how you heard about Smashwords.  They will send you a confirmation e-mail.  So, check your e-mail, click the link, and you’re set to shop.  [I am so sorry that it is a “process”… but that’s the way it is.  I’m praying for every technically challenged friend to be able to sail smoothly through this step!]

Once you are signed in and on the book page, scroll to the bottom of this page, and it will show you all of the versions you now own (btw, you now own all of them).  Once you buy the book, you can download it into as many different readers or versions that you need.  You can keep coming back to this page to download it again and again.  Once you buy it, it is yours, and you won’t be charged for it ever again.

I know you’ll be honest and not download it for anyone other than yourselves. 😉 

If you want to give a copy to a friend, family, or as a give away, that would be such a blessing!  Through Amazon and Barnes and Noble, you can buy the book as a gift. I’m still working on a way to be able to purchase the book via PDF and Epub versions for someone else.  I’ll let you know as soon as I figure that out.

If you have any other questions, I’ll try my best to answer them….(leave a comment and be sure to leave your e-mail address so I can reply.)

This book belongs to the Lord, and I sincerely pray that He uses it to bring Himself much pleasure and joy.  At the beginning of the book, I share this heartfelt prayer for each person who reads this work:

Dear Jesus,

YOU are the Christ of Christmas, the Child born, the Son given, Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace (Is. 9:6). Thank You for Your promise to us in James 1:5 that if we ask you for wisdom, you will give it fully, and not hold it back from us.

So in your name, dear Jesus, I ask on behalf of myself and all who come across this book that YOU flow off of every page and pour into every life. Please give us Your Wisdom as we savor this information and listen for You to guide us as we make decisions concerning our hearts, households, and homes.

May YOU, The One and Only Reason for this Season, ignite these words and bring them to life within each person. Prince of Peace, please reign over each mind, heart, and home represented. Please inspire our hearts with the breath of Your Spirit, and glorify Yourself as we seek to keep You AS Christmas this year.

In the beautiful name of Jesus, A men.

Again, I thank you so very much for your support!  It has meant the world to me.  Check out this post for some additional “thank you’s”.  I can’t wait to see who wins the 3 free books! 

With much love to and gratitude for each one of you~
