This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every moring: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion saith my soul: therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Lamentations 3: 21-26

The rules are simple: 1) Post one note on your blog linking back to this post about the book giveaway. 2) A new book will be listed with a review each day, Monday through Friday, June 4-8, visit me at least once during the week to 3) Leave a comment on at least one of the review posts.

4) Just for fun—not really a rule, the first book is a June bride mystery. So try to think of good tip for saving money when planning a wedding or something funny that happened at your wedding. I will be sharing my most embarrassing wedding moment and some frugal tips tomorrow in a separate post. I would love to hear about your wedding. What made it special, or anything you would be so wonderful to share.

I will draw a winner’s name next Sunday, June 10 and send out the books as soon as I get them. I am still waiting to receive them, so we might have to be a bit more patient. They all look worth waiting for!!

Just finished the Bride was very good! I still haven't gotten books 4 and 5 yet, but the first three rocked:-)

Please enter me for your book drawing! I'd be interested in any or all 5 of the books. :) I've posted about your giveaway here.

Okay, here's my good tip for saving money when planning a wedding. Rather than spend $100-$200+ on a veil, I made my own! I bought the veil netting at Michael's for $20 and then I used a hotgun to glue it on to a hair combs and I embroidered the combs with pearled daisy flowers that I also found at Michael's.

The veil turned out great! I think it looked better than anything I could've purchased at a bridal shop and it cost me WAY less!

Karen--glad you liked the books!

Overwhelmed--Great tip!! I made my veil too. I've done veils for two other weddings. It is really fun.

Oh, my. Which embarrassing moment should I pick? Let's see, we almost blew up the truck the day before the wedding, (the oil filter was faulty.) Then a friend took me out to lunch the day of the wedding, to Taco Bell (that's pretty bad, but not the worst part, LOL) I left my purse there! We did get it back, intact. Then during the wedding the ring bearer passed out. I could see him bouncing out of the corner of my eye and thought he was goofing around! Poor kid! We had a WAY too long ceremony.

Anyway, I just might have to post some of our money saving frugal wedding tips! Ours was one budget affair!!

I just put a link up. Books are one of my favorite things -- free books -- well, that's just icing on the cake!

My main advice about weddings is to just not work yourself into a frenzy over it and to remember it;s about the marriage, not the wedding. I am dismayed that weddings seem to be getting more and more elaborate and expensive and stressful.

Every wedding seems to have something that goes wrong. On my wedding morning, one soloist called in sick, the pianist called to ask if she could delete one song from the prelude that she was having trouble with, and just before I was supposed to start down the aisle, a gar;and wrapped around the arch came slowly unwinding down. One dear lady near the front tucked it back up. But....those are the things you talk about for years to come. :)
