I am so excited.  In honor of my 20th FOLLOWER, I am having my first giveaway.  Oh, I know that lots of blogs have WAY more than 20 followers.  But my "followers" are awesome!!!  I want each one of you who "follow" my blog, and those who don't follow but come over to read and comment, to know that you are each so special to me.  I love reading your comments.  I learn from you.  You encourage me.  And I hope in some small way you take something away from reading Down On The Farm.  I blog about my everyday life, our farm, my kids, my husband, and my Lord.  Above all, I want to honor HIM in everything I say or do.  I want to be an encourager.  I want people to see Jesus in me.  I don't think I'm particularly talented or creative, just an ordinary girl, striving to be a woman of God.  I would greatly appreciate your prayers as I try to walk everyday living for Him.

Now, back to the giveaway.  I am giving away the Beth Moore Living Beyond Yourself 11 CD set!  This audio study focuses on the fruits of the Spirit.  You know, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.  Come on, admit it, you're singing that song in your head . . . I AM!  If you haven't had the opportunity to experience a Beth Moore study you are in for a real treat. I have participated in several Beth Moore studies and I can tell you that, in my opinion, she is truly an anointed teacher and speaker.  You will laugh, you will cry, but most of all you will come away from this study with a fuller understanding of the Holy Spirit.  I promise you will be blessed.  (UPDATE!  When I say I have "participated in several Beth Moore studies" I mean that we have done the DVD study series at my church.  I have never BEEN to a Beth Moore study or met her in person, although I would LOVE too.  Just wanted to clarify that.)

So, if you want to enter, just leave a comment, and you're entered.  If you are a follower of Down On The Farm, or become a follower, leave a comment indicating that and you have another chance to win.  If you post on your blog about my giveaway and have a link back to Down On The Farm, again, leave a comment indicating that and you will have another chance to win.  Hey, that's THREE CHANCES!!!

Winner will be chosen by random drawing and announced on Monday morning, March 1, 2010!  Good luck everybody!!!!!


  1. How exciting!!! I've always wanted to do a Beth Moore study, but work on Wednesdays when all the Bible studies are. I'm too lazy to figure it all out myself so this would be perfect! We could get together any old day!!!

    You now have 21 followers!!
    Blessings to you!

  6. I have no idea who Beth Moore is honestly. lol I was Catholic until this last Aug. My life has changed some huh.. lol. I'm still in learning mode. There's so much I wasn't told and so much I was lied to about. I'm just glad God led me to His truth! I just wanted to stop by after I read that you said how awesome your followers were. I agree... I have under 30 and love them all. Have a happy night <3
