BOOK GIVEAWAY : It's Time to Plant Your Garden!

Work your garden - you'll end up with plenty of food; Play and party - you'll end up with an empty plate. -Proverbs 28:19

What do you need to do today or this week to plant your garden, to start that new career, or begin that dream that you have been putting off for years?
What first step can you begin today, to bring it into being?
Leave a comment below and I will give away your choice of an ebook or paperback copy of GOD LOVES YOUR DREAM next Monday.
I can't wait to hear what your first step will be!
