Where I've been.....and a Giveaway!

Well, life has been blessedly full! But not really with sewing! I have been posting a lot over at my other blog, One Doula and am now doing a book giveaway for Redeeming Childbirth. Have you heard of it? If so, tell me what you think of it in the comments below! Come enter a #giveaway for an autographed copy of #RedeemingChildbirth! http://gretchenlouise.com/?p=8903
I am very privileged to be a part of the launch team and Angie has very graciously agreed to allow me to give away a free autographed copy of Redeeming Childbirth on my blog. Now, before nearly all of my readers skip right over this post, consider that this book is for you, yes, YOU! Birth experiences that worship and glorify the Lord require preparation and if you are unmarried and without children, conforming your attitude regarding birth to the Lord's ways, starts NOW! The Lord uses everything in our lives for His glory and our good and those who embrace this message later on in life when they are in the trenches of motherhood or are mentoring young women, will bring the Lord glory and further His kingdom. Just think what would happen if you understood the Lord's heart early on in your young life! And just for the record, it's a great resource for anyone supporting mothers in labor and birth, dads included! I think this book should be on the required reading list for every doula and midwifery program also. But before I go on and on....you can just read my review here!

I do hope you will consider entering and purchasing your own copy even if you don't win. Head on over to One Doula for more information on entering the giveaway. What are your thoughts about birth as a single woman (or not!) and where would you like to be?

Love and Blessings,
Bethany

~Vintage Blouse







Pattern: Sense and Sensibility Romantic Blouse Pattern

Fabric: 100% cotton shirting from Fashion Fabrics Club. Super quality at great prices!

Notes: I didn't change a thing and followed the instructions exactly, as far as I can tell. I knew my sister would wear the blouse this way, tucked in with a skirt, so I wasn't worried about it being fitted. I would definitely say the sizing runs large if you are going for a more fitted blouse. The style is perfect for her World War 2 hobby and makes up in under 5 hrs. Perfect for my Christmas procrastination hobby also ;)

Happy New Year!
