The fine people at Paraclete Press have sent me some copies of two new journals they’ve just published so that I can give them away to readers of this blog. Both are by Hilda St. Clair, a writer and artist from Cape Cod. The journals are gorgeous. One is called All Shall Be Well: A Spiritual Journal for Hope & Encouragement, and the other is Love Never Fails: A Journal to be Inspired by the Power of Love. Every page of each journal has a stunning graphic by St. Clair on the left–with quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke, Martin Luther King, Jr, Gregory the Great, James Baldwin, Julian of Norwich, Eleanor Roosevelt, Teresa of Avila, Catherine of Siena, and more. On the right is a writing prompt with space to journal or respond in some other way in writing. If you click the linked titles you’ll be able to look through each journal and see what I mean.
To enter, just leave a comment to this post and on Monday, February 27, I’ll put all the names in a pot and draw one each for the six copies I have to give away. If you’d rather send me an email instead of leaving a comment on the blog, that’s fine too. I know there are fancy online random picking systems to sign up for and employ for such giveaways, but I need to keep this simple, and I’ll surely keep it honest. I hope you’ll enter!
Update from Monday, February 27: My husband drew six names – gathered here in comments and from emails – and so we have the winners! I'll send out notes later today and will put the books in mail probably tomorrow.
