We are so excited to begin reading our own Holley Gerth’s You’re Already Amazing as a community.
We hope this post will answer some logistical questions for you! If you have additional questions, please feel free to leave them in the comments section below and someone will be sure to respond.
What to Expect
If this is your first time reading a Bloom book – welcome! We are so glad you are here. Essentially, each week you can expect to see videos of us discussing each chapter of You’re Already Amazing. :)
All posts will be on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, not weekends. The content will always be available here on the Bloom page, so feel free to watch the videos at any time if the days are not convenient for you.
We are so excited that Holley will be joining us to discuss every chapter! Mondays and Wednesdays will be chapter posts and on Fridays we will have a special freebie from Holley to go along with the book. Be prepared to be blessed. Holley really knocked our socks off.
Buy a Book, Give a Book – and Get Free Shipping!
You’re Already Amazing is currently on sale for $9 on DaySpring.com.
When Angie and I first started Bloom almost two years ago, it was very important that everyone be able to participate, regardless of ability to purchase a book.
If you find yourself in a very difficult financial season and are unable to purchase a book, from Wednesday through Friday this week you can fill out a form requesting a free book. (The form will be posted on this page on Wednesday.) We ask that you please be very honest and only request a book if you truly cannot afford the $10. We only have a limited quantity to give away that largely depends on how many sponsors/donations we get.
This is where the community of Bloom beautifully shows up.
If you are able to purchase a book for someone in need, DaySpring has set up a sweet deal for you starting today.
In addition to purchasing your own book, you can choose to purchase a second book for someone in need for an additional $9. (Feel free to give more than one if you can! To purchase a “Sponsor” book,just go here, click on the image of You’re Already Amazing with the green sponsor button on it and purchase the Sponsor book for $9. This option expires March 30)
If you purchase two or more books you get FREE shipping on your book – and DaySpring will take care of getting your donated book to a fellow Bloomie in need. Just use coupon code: BLOOMBOOK (If any other wonderful DaySpring products fall into your shopping cart, those will ship free too! This code will also work if you are purchasing multiple books for yourself).
We are so excited and thankful that DaySpring is again managing all the coordination of the donated books – and taking care of the shipping. What a blessing! Also a special thanks to publisher Revell, who has graciously donated 100 copies of the book to help with this effort.
With each Bloom book selection, we are always amazed by the community of women who step forward and buy books for their fellow sisters in Christ. THANK YOU to those of you who are able to generously give.
