I won!, I won!, I won!!!!!!

I was reading an article today (yes, just this afternoon) in a magazine called Ministry Today.
The article was titled--Slim City Toledo, Ohio. It was all about how a pastor with the help of a pro is transforming his church--and his city--one pound at a time.
Now do you know why I decided this would be a great article to read?
Yes, those 7 pounds lingering from Thanksgiving and Christmas need to say goodbye.
Their program has been so successful that the Mayor of the city has asked about the program and if they would be interested in sharing it at some of the local YMCAs
and in small groups open to the city. They have even had other cities call to see if they could get a hold of the program and materials.

So I thought I might get the materials to see if it might help me. I was planning on going to get the book they used. The name of the book?
Perfect Weight by Jordan Rubin.

I have heard of Jordan Rubin, I think he wrote a book called The Makers Diet.
Anyway, when I got home from running my errands today I got on the computer to check my emails----- and low and behold----
I had won a book!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And what was the name of the book?
How cool is that?
Jessie over at Overflow of a Forgiven Soul had a little contest and I WON!
How cool is God? So I take that as a sign that He wants me to read this.
I will let you know what treasures I find.

Thank YOU Jessie!!!!!!
