Blog Hop Begins

Blog Posting for May 7th

Welcome to the 1st John 3:16 Giveaway Blog Hop! As one of the members of this great network of Christian Authors, I am excited to participate in this event! We have come together this week to showcase our books and to give you, our readers, a chance to win some great prizes as you “hop” from blog to blog. A different prize is offered at each blog site (no purchase necessary), however if you want to have a chance to win one of two Kindles the network is giving away, the only requirement is that you sign up for the John 3:16 ezine newsletter. (Located at the top right side column of the John 3:16 blog site.)

At our blog, you can DOWNLOAD FREE GREETING CARDS. The free greeting cards are our free gifts to visitors who are participating in the blog hop.

(See official rules here.)

At the other blogs, each author will require that you leave a comment (and a valid email address) so they may contact you if you win a prize offered on their blog site.

May I also suggest that you show your love and appreciation to each blog host by either following them on Twitter, or “liking” them on Facebook or even subscribing to their blog. It won’t help your odds of winning a prize but I know each author would be thrilled and very encouraged!

As part of our participation in the blog hop, we are offering free greeting cards to anyone who visits our site. Download and print your free greeting card.

So tell your friends about the John 3:16 Giveaway Blog Hop! It’s going to be a great week of fun!

Just click on the links below to go from blog to blog! Happy hoppin’!

    I am a lover of God’s creation also and it’s incredible beauty and variety,”Art is man’s nature and nature is God’s art.”

  13. Hi Melissa,
    I’m starting from the bottom tonight and hopping around to say “Hello.” It’s nice to meet you and see your blog. I, too, went through a divorce at the age of 45. It was devastating at the time, but I have accomplished things I never would have otherwise. Thank you for writing about this difficult subject. Stop by my blog at and leave a comment to win a copy of my book “Death in Dahlonega.”

      God always brings redemption if we give our pain to Him. I wouldn’t have my two daughters today if I had not gone through a divoce Mine was painful, heartwrenching and nearly destroyed me. I loved my ex deeply and did not want a divorce. I have yet to write about it as I don’t know if I am ready to dig into those painful memories, and it’s been 30 years. I am still single, though, by choice. I was engaged and broke it off.

    • MainWriters says:

      God can bring good things out of our difficulties. If I hadn’t gotten the divorce, I don’t think I’d be writing today and pursuing a MA in Creative Writing.
