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.

We will also have posts in the (in)courage BlogFrog community to discuss the videos and chapters in more detail. (So be sure and sign up if you haven’t yet – it’s easy peasy. Just click here.)

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.

If you have additional questions about the sponsor program please visit the FAQ page.

    Thank you so much for being such an amazing encouragement and blessing. :o)

  • http://belovedhopeendures.com Melinda

    You guys are amazing. I am super excited, and so glad to be a part of this book club. I can’t wait to get started. The book has been sitting on my nightstand calling my name, and now I know why I haven’t started yet. YAY:)

  • Susan

    I am picking my book up from the bookstore tonight and am looking forward to reading it. I have dedicated this Lenten Season to self-improvement and bettering my relationship with me and with God. This book seems to fit right into my plan. Thank you!

  • http://juliesunne.com Julie Sunne

    I was hoping to read this book. It’s a bonus to do so in community. Thanks, Bloom! Can’t wait.

    I want to join the club, because I’m already reading the book (and LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! it).
    Can someone please help me figure out how to join the book club?

    Thank you! :)

  • Kristin

    This will be my first bloom incourage book study. I am really looking forward to reading and learning along with everyone!

  • Sim

    Can I join the book study without a copy of the book in hand? I do not live in the United States and am not in a position to purchase this book under my present circumstances but I do want to join in the book study.

  • Lois Wisniewski

    Is there a cost to join the club, or just the cost of the book? I’ve never been part of a book club, and the idea of one on-line sounds interesting!!!

  • Robin

    When will we find out if we were selected to receive a free book?

  • Bronna Wilson

    I am excited to be a part of the book club and be a part of the discussion. I am looking forward to reading your enouraging words.

  • Amy

    Is there anywhere in Canada that I can purchase this book??

    I would like to buy one and send one to a friend as well (in Canada too) but seems silly to pay $32 for shipping when the 2 books only cost $18. I live near Edmonton, Alberta.

    • Rebekah

      I just bought mine last night at the Fig Tree at WEM…it was $14.99.

  • http://www.growthrulife.com Mitzi

    I wanted to order a book for me…and send a book to my friend in Florida….thought it would be so great to be able to do the study together….but when I put the code in
    BLOOMBOOK…it still charged me shipping?????

  • Judy

    I only became awear of the Book Club today. I’d love to be a part of reading together but right now I don’t have the time availability. I did email all the info to a dear friend who is homebound and in a wheelchair. She really can’t afford the book, and I just realized that it’s too late for her to request a free book. Is there anyway she could still get a free copy. She is on a very limited income. It would be deeply appreciated.
    I’ll wait to hear ab. this.
    Thanks so much,
    Judy

  • Dee

    Just bought this book yesterday and can’t stop reading it. Already on Chapter 10. The Lord really led me to this book as I looked at the cover, put it down, came back, thumbed through it, put it back, walked away again and came back and looked at it again. Alright, Lord, I get the hint. I thought that the book would be great for helping me to understand my daughter who is going through an eating disorder and very perfectionistic. Wow, I found a lot of myself in here too.

    Thanks for your insights and your blessings to all the women out there. I can’ wait for the videos. God Bless.

  • CArolyn Skaggs

    What am I doing wrong?

    Would we have already received the book if we had been selected for a free copy?

    I signed up the first day but I have not gotten an email nor a response to my inquiries. I would just like to know for sure one way or the other.

    Can anybody offer some clarification? I would greatly appreciate it.

    God is pretty much amazing! I bought the nook edition of this book over the weekend because I had recently acquired a nook, this one looked interesting and it was decently priced. I had NO IDEA that incourage.me was doing a study complete with video discussions with the author. I have already read the first two chapters and it has already radically changed how I view myself. Thank you Holley for the way your write (I’m partial to coffee-dates so your first chapter had me pretty much hooked!)

    I started reading the book You’re Already Amazing with my bible study class. On page 24 it says I can go to the web site there and get the printable version of the tools and exerises. I went to the site but just showed the books to buy. Can you tell me where I can get the stuff so I can do them.
    Thank-you and God Bless , Patti
