Four Winners… and a Wedding

Four Winners

Thank you to all who participated in the Kindle Fire Blog Tour giveaway. I randomly selected two bloggers and two readers of the 2016 Blog Tour. The four winners of the Kindle Fire tablets are:

  1. Bill Rogers, blogging at
  2. Bob Mac Leod, blogging at TNTtips
  3. Karen Watkins
  4. Lisa Anderson

The Bloggers

Bill Rogers

I don’t know who’s driving that Laredo, but Bill Rogers, in the sweater, wrote me:

I have to say that the most fun part of winning was telling my family. My two boys (11 and 13) immediately started sharing with me all the games that I could download on it so that “I” could play them myself, or with them. ūüôā

I do have a quite a large backlog of free Kindle books to read thanks to David C Cook. I hope that the Kindle Fire will help me get started on these books soon.

Thank you Sus for helping me feel like I won the lottery. (at least for a few minutes)


Bob Mac Leod recently started a blog for TntConnect users, TNTtips. Bob used his new Kindle Fire a lot on a recent MPD trip.

If you missed, or didn’t keep up with, the blog tour, all the posts are listed here.¬†The¬†most¬†popular posts were:

The Readers

Lisa Anderson

Our next winner was Lisa Anderson, who wrote:

Thanks, Sus!¬†I couldn’t believe I won because just that morning my old Kindle was acting crazy and I was mourning its demise! I felt so incredibly loved by my heavenly Father with this surprise.

I don’t have a laptop, so my Kindle is my ‘computer on the go’. I mainly use it for email and social media, but when we travel it’s also my library and work station.¬† My favorite app to relax and stretch my brain is Puzzlemix. ūüôā

Karen Watkins

Winner Karen Watkins¬†doesn’t¬†follow many blogs, so she enjoyed reading¬†what Cru staff are writing through following the blog tour.

Several other staff commented on the tour when they entered the giveaway:

It’s a great idea–a way to gain input from and get to know others who are on the same journey. ~ Alice W.

Some of the blogs challenge me and teach me valuable lessons. ~ Nancy W.

I love the great variety of voices God is using to minister to people. It encourages me to persevere on my own social outreach. ~ Steve C.

[The tour] has good content which relates to life on staff and being equipped for the long haul. ~ Terry R.

If you’d like to find more Cru bloggers, I’ve compiled¬†a list with links to over 120 Cru bloggers. Thank you for following and encouraging them in their blogging ministries.

A Family Wedding

Mike and I are¬†excited to celebrate our daughter’s wedding with lots of family coming from all over in June. Because of this big event, I decided I’m temporarily dropping out of the blogosphere. I’ll be back in mid-June with the next post for the Byte-Size Series.
