Book Giveaway

FishWithTrish blog is giving away a copy of Feminine Threads.
This book deals with women in church history.

Here's an excerpt from Trish' about one of my heroes that's in the book:

And later in the book, we learn of the trials and triumphs of ladies like Susanna Wesley (John Wesley's mother) who had "nineteen children, only nine of whom lived to adulthood. One daughter as deformed for life." But even though her household was large, Severance points out that she "had to be organized and methodical if she was to accomplish anything. She spent at least an hour of every day in her private devotions; six hours a day, six days a week she set aside for the education of her children, even writing some of the textbooks and study materials herself. She instructed the children in both academic subjects and Christian truth."
I would love to get a copy of this and read it with my daughter!
