Good morning all. I wanted to write a blog post to talk to you guys about the latest ebook giveaway.
I recently set up a Amazon giveaway for the e-book version of my book When the One You love Doesn’t Love You Anymore. I made three books available. There was at least one person who would win, but for some reason it was never claimed. So just this week, I started a new giveaway. I have made three ebook copies available to the first three people who enter the giveaway. But one thing you need to make sure of, is that you go in and claim your prize. Now I am not sure how you would do that, but I am under the assumption that you would have received some notification for having won a giveaway. So I asked that you take the time to go to amazon.com and enter the giveaway so that you can get a free copy of the e-book. The link is below:
If you have any comments or any sort of issues with this system please let me know by posting a comment to this post. This is the third giveaway that I am hosting through Amazon and while there have been winners, I haven’t been able to give away any ebooks. I really appreciate your help with this, and I really hope you like the book. Happy reading!
For those of
you who have read my blog posts, you might have begun to learn a little about
me. There is so much more about my life to
learn and what drives me to do what I am doing.
I honestly don’t like sharing much about my past, because, well, people
judge. So often people choose to take
what you have said and find ways to use it against you. Why is our honesty somehow considered offensive
to someone who had nothing to do with what you have said? Unfortunately, it is the world we live in; honesty
isn’t readily welcomed.
But today, something deep down inside me said, “Cynthia, you must tell them why. Tell them why you wrote the book, When The One You Love Doesn’t Love You Anymore.” I considered doing a video to place on the front page of my website, but that voice told me that later could be too late. I know, without a doubt, that it was God’s voice that expressed to me that today is the day to share this, not later. So, friend, here it goes.
I grew up in
the suburbs of Dallas, Texas, in an area known for gang activity and
crime. It wasn’t the worst part of the
city, but where we lived wasn’t too far from some of the worst crime areas. Growing up, it wasn’t out of the ordinary to
hear gunshots at night, and— trust me—nobody was shooting a deer to feed their
family. I remember being shot at one
evening as I drove a friend home. The
police were called and guns were drawn as a road-block was set up to secure the
area. It was an intense night, and us
girls, only around the age of 17, stood in disbelief and terror in the reality
of what was happening.
that I grew up in did not leave room for dreams. Many people who grow up the way I did struggle
to succeed. In the years to follow, our
family went through a lot of changes. Some
changes were good, and some were not so good.
As an adult, I would find myself married and then divorced, not once,
but twice. I found myself, for years,
dealing with depression and with no help.
There wasn’t availability to get counseling, and there wasn’t anyone to
throw me a rope to pull me out of the pit I was in.
THEN there was
the day that everything changed. God
came to me in my lonely and depressive state and comforted me in ways that are
hard to describe. That day, I met God
for the first time! It is a day I will
never forget! That day set me on a path that
changed everything and led me to places I could only dream of. I met God, and I met my purpose! I really struggled in so many areas of my
life. I am now a changed woman blessed
in so many ways – some of those blessings are even things I never knew to
dream, but they are awesome!
You may ask, “So,
why did you write that book, Cynthia?” What
is my answer? I wrote this book, because
you DESERVE to know. You DESERVE to know
the truth about life, and that life as you know it can be sweeter than anything
you ever tasted. Not too sweet, but that
perfect balance of sweet that makes you laugh and experience joy like you never
have before. This is what it feels like
to experience the love of God.
So, my friend, you DESERVE to hear the truth about what it is like to put your past behind you. You DESERVE to experience success that doesn’t come from the toil of your own hands but from a diligent, gratifying working of the hands. You DESERVE to experience true love. You DESERVE to know that there is a way to overcome alcoholism, drug addiction, fear, stress, anxiety, financial crises, divorce, tragedy, the loss of loved ones and ALL of your struggles, no matter what it is. You DESERVE to know what it’s like to not worry. You DESERVE to know what it’s like for someone to die to save YOUR life. You DESERVE a chance to change everything for the better. You DESERVE to know Jesus. And who am I to keep Jesus from you? Who am I to choose who is blessed and who isn’t? Who am I to keep all these things to myself? It was never just mine to keep. It was given so that it could be shared. It was given so that lives could be saved. It was given so you, too, could know what true love is. This is why I wrote the book.
