Chasing God book

I’ve written about Angie Smith once before (after I saw her at Women of Faith a year and a half ago), which is how I’m assuming her PR team found our blog and contacted me to do this giveaway. She was my favorite speaker I’ve ever seen at Women of Faith.

I love Angie’s story. She’s had lots of ups and downs, from marrying the man of her dreams (lead singer of Selah), suffering a miscarriage, birthing identical twins, losing a baby a few hours after she was born, etc. She’s got four beautiful daughters here on earth and they’re such a lovely family.

I follow Angie on Twitter so I can continue to be inspired by her on a daily basis. Because I want to know not just what she would say when she gets up in front of thousands of people to speak, but what she would say/how she would react while watching the Olympics or when she gets stuck in a snowstorm on the interstate or when her flight gets delayed or when she runs into homeschooling problems. She’s real, and I love that she’s a Christian sister I can look to.

Anyway, Angie’s got lots of books out there, and her most recent is called Chasing God.

You may remember last year when Eric surprised me with a coupon book for Mother’s Day. I’ve cashed in a few of my dates already. It’s such a good gift, and I especially love pulling it out when I’m feeling like I need a little pick-me-up. (My favorite was the “Laundry Duty” coupon, and you can bet I used it on the week when all our sheets needed to be washed. :) )

Anyway, today we’re excited to bring you another giveaway from Datevitation!

Datevitation is the first website that helps you create a custom love coupon book. Unlike the prepackaged coupon books on the market, you pick the date ideas and customize the text to your liking. Once you are done customizing the text in your book, Datevitation will print it and ship it to you.

Datevitation let me make a book for Eric for Valentine’s Day! Our love languages are very different, so I made sure to choose coupons I knew he would enjoy.

We’re constantly looking for ways to make our blog better. And we have a lot of ideas for where to take it in the coming year (2014 is right around the corner!). But, we’d love your help to see if what we’re thinking is what you’d like to see on the blog. 

Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey, and at the end, enter your email address for a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card!

2013 Reader Survey - Words of Williams

The survey will be up through the end of the year, but we’ll draw for the gift card at the end of the day Friday, Dec. 13.

I’ll take the survey! »

Congratulations to Jesse Coulter for winning this giveaway, and thanks to all who participated!


Sorry to hold the suspense until after Mother’s Day, but I had to keep this secret from Kelsey! Luckily the fine folks at Datevitation (see below for who they are and what they do!) contacted me and not Kelsey, because this was just the perfect Mother’s Day surprise I needed (since Kelsey usually picks out her gifts and lets me know where to order, removing all surprise elements).

Datevitation allowed me to test their process and I created a date coupon book as a Mother’s Day gift for Kelsey. It was a ton of fun, and I was overly impressed with the turnaround time. I ordered the custom book on a Friday and it arrived on Monday! What! I’d say it’s impossible, but it actually happened.

Today we’re having a party! If you’ve been wanting to place a Thirty-One order (like us), you’re in luck. Our awesome blog sponsor Melissa Thielen is a Thirty-One consultant. She’s offering us 10% off orders of $50+! And perhaps the most exciting part is that we’re giving away the hostess benefits! You could be the Mystery Hostess just by placing an order!

Here are our favorite Thirty-One products. I’d love to hear what yours are as well!


  • My newest bag is the Thermal Zipper Pouch that I use as a lunch bag (I love it!).
  • We use the Large Utility Tote for Rooney whenever we travel, and I love how open it is yet still structured. You can see everything that’s in there so you aren’t digging all the time. It also collapses for storage in her closet when we’re not using it. We want another one of these for ourselves, so we are placing an order for that (in Lotsa Dots print)!
  • My mom recently bought Roo the Littles Carry-All Caddy (Punch Bowl pattern). It’s such a cute little size for kids!
  • My sister has the Zipper Pouch (same size as my lunch bag, but no thermal lining) and I am always jealous of it. It seems like the perfect size for traveling with makeup/toiletries! I might have to get one of these, too! My makeup bag is too small to fit my perfume, deodorant and comb. It barely fits my makeup, and I always wish I could pack it all together. (Maybe this will be a Mother’s Day gift to myself?!)

Discount and Giveaway Details:

  • Anyone (in the U.S.) can take advantage of the discount 10% off orders of $50+. The discount will be applied after your order is submitted.
  • The May special is for every $31 spent, you can purchase any thermal for 50% off (including the thermal I use as my lunch bag)
  • Use this link to place your order!
  • Party ends Tuesday, May 28, 2013.
  • Anyone (in the U.S.) can take advantage of the Mystery Hostess event by placing an order (Eric and I are not eligible to win). Simply placing an order will count as one (1) entry. You can purchase as little as the $2 nail file to be eligible. An additional entry will be given for every $31 in product spent. So, as an example, if you place an order for $62 in product you will receive three (3) entries as well as 10% off from the discount!
  • Hostess benefits are outlined below. The exclusive items can be viewed here.

P.S. If you’re not familiar with Thirty-One, it is a faith-based company based on Proverbs 31. I love that!
