LDSJournal.com FREE Book Publishing Winners

One of the few things I personally get to enjoy at the TOFW events is when Laurel or Chrislyn announces the winners of the LDSJournal.com FREE giveaway. At each event this year we have given away one (1) Full Color print of an LDSJournal to a lucky member in the audience. With this prize, the winner can choose to print up their personal LDSJournal up to 800-pages in full color and LDSJournal.com will cover the cost of the printed book -- a $150-$200 value. Recently, we have given away three (3) Color Prints in Richmond, CA; Riverside, CA; and Kansas City, MO. Steve even made up a very nice certificate to award our winners. Here's a handful of our winners, just in case you wondered if anyone actually wins these sick puppies. :)

Jill Manning at Time Out For Women

I am not able to really discuss what Jill Manning talked about at Time Out For Women because it is private and contractual to Deseret Book. However, I would like to say that her talk was extremely powerful and everyone should be made aware of her discussion points. I hope you will please take a moment to read the material she has made available at http://www.deseretbook.com/jill and please share it with family and friends that may be struggling with this great problem.

It's been a while since my last post

Wow, it's been so long since I've written on this blog, you might think that I must really struggle with my journal writing. :) Well, at least I do a good job with that. I felt compelled to write about my experience the past few weekends at Time Out For Women in Richmond, VA and Riverside, CA. As one of the major sponsors of TOFW, I feel LDSJournal.com is extremely lucky to be a part of such a great event, but particularly blessed to have an opportunity to positively effect the lives of many members and meet so many of our current and new users face-to-face.

This past weekend, I had an opportunity to meet Ardeth Kapp. She gave a tremendous talk and I got to listen to it in Richmond and Riverside. I wish all members could have an opportunity to hear this sweet lady share her testimony and counsel. I felt so lucky when she stopped by our table to learn about LDSJournal. I shared our hopes and goals of the service and to get approval of our mission from Ardeth was a thrill for me. She even referenced LDSJournal and what she learned about the evolution of journaling in her talk -- that was particularly special for me.

One of the great things that we do at all of the TOFW events is the FREE Full Color Printed Book giveaway. All attendees have an opportunity to enter our drawing and we had 1 winner in Richmond and 3 winners in Riverside. Two of the 4 winners were current users of LDSJournal and I was thrilled to be able to give them an opportunity to print their journal before the holidays.

I was to personally thankful to the users that stopped by our booth to learn about the service and take brochures and pass along cards to members of their Ward. I hope that I will meet some of you in Kansas City and the upcoming shows in St. George and Salt Lake City.
