Mother's day book giveaway

In honor of Mother's day. I'm giving away 3 books on my blog. If you would like to enter to win it, just leave me a comment with your name and what books you would like to be entered to win.

The first one is entitled Dear Mom. This was a great book. I read a couple of books with my teen small group when I was in youth ministry by Melody Carlson. It's a great book for moms who are parenting teenaged girls.

Here's a little summary.
Popular novelist Melody Carlson gives moms straight talk on the secrets their teen daughters harbor—without the angst, arguments, or arm-wrestling. She looks at the heart and illuminates how to talk to teens so they hear, connect despite the differences, and strengthen the bond every mom and daughter ultimately wants.
Melody Carlson is the award-winning author of more than one hundred books for adults, children, and teens, with sales totaling more than three million copies. Beloved for her Diary of a Teenage Girl and Notes from a Spinning Planet series, she’s also the author of the women’s novels Finding Alice (in production now for a Lifetime-TV movie), Crystal Lies, On This Day, These Boots Weren’t Made for Walking, and A Mile in My Flip-Flops. A mother of two grown sons, Melody lives in central Oregon with her husband and chocolate lab retriever. She’s a full-time writer and an avid gardener, biker, skier, and hiker.

The next book is entitled Mama’s Got a Fake I.D. This book is perfect for us moms who are trying to figure out where we fit in. So many of us struggle with our identities. Who are we? Who are we besides being moms? How do we figure out our identity in Christ as moms? It's a great book.
Here's a summary.
Caryn Rivadeneira helps women reclaim their full identity as multi-talented people whom God wants to use in a variety of settings—including in their homes. This inspiring, practical guide shows women how to break free from false guilt, learn how to express who they are, and follow God’s lead in sharing their true self with others.
The former managing editor of Marriage Partnership and Christian Parenting Today, Caryn Dahlstrand Rivedeneira has been a trusted voice writing and speaking to women for more than a decade. Today she is the managing editor of GiftedForLeadership.com, an online community for Christian women in leadership. Rivadeneira works from home in the Chicago suburbs, where she lives with her husband and their three children.

The last book is entitled Enduring Justice. This last book is good, but not my type of book. It's a mystery book and just not my thing. However, I think it's cool that she is from Lawrenceville, GA where Steven was a youth intern. Here's the summary:
Hanna Kessler’s secret remained buried for decades. But when the shadows of her past threaten those she loves and the system fails FBI Agent Michael Parker, setting a white supremacist free, they must learn the difference between vengeance and justice is their choice to heal.
Amy Wallace is the author of Ransomed Dreams and Healing Promises, a homeschool mom, and self-confessed chocoholic. She is a graduate of the Gwinnett County Citizens Police Academy and a contributing author of several books including God Answers Moms’ Prayers and Chicken Soup for the Soul Healthy Living Series: Diabetes. She lives with her husband and three children in Georgia.

Sign me up! At first I was like: I'm not a mom anymore (well, not like with little kids running around)...but then I read the descriptions of the books. I think they could help me with teaching either middle schoolers or high schoolers. They could be part of my summer reading club! I want to read at least 20 books this summer and earn a certificate from the Bug Library.
