Magnificent Hope has been spending some time with author Sheryl Holmes. We'll share all her adventures in the coming weeks, but today, Sheryl has written a post for the "Where in the World is Magnificent Hope?" contest! Readers, submit your best guess for a chance to win a Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet, a $100 gift card, and a bunch of books! Directions for how to enter are below Sheryl's post.
While Magnificent Hope was visiting me in my New England hometown, we gathered for a picnic lunch at a very well known relaxing spot to enjoy the beauty of God’s Creation amidst a very man-made creation meant to serve a great many people about sixty five miles away.
This is a place to be quiet and take in the gentle music of nature and read a book.
Many often fancy this as a place to take a walk and take in the view, remembering that four towns were disincorporated in 1938 and flooded to create this breathtaking view that serves such an essential purpose. I understand this is the largest body of water in my state.
My friends and I shared a lovely afternoon together as we each revealed the Magnificent Hope living inside each one of us. You may notice, that Magnificent Hope has multiplied ... it is because she lives in each of us who follow Jesus. She is not a one-dimensional entity, but a multifaceted essence that is Spirit-driven and given by the One who redeemed us. Dear Maggie Hope is alive and well and was in full exuberance at this outing!
Where in the world are we?
So, readers, can you guess where Magnificent Hope is this week?
Each week, we’ll post a photo of Magnificent Hope near a landmark. If you know “Where in the World is Magnificent Hope?” send us an e-mail with the subject line CONTEST WEEK 1, CONTEST WEEK 2, CONTEST WEEK 3, etc. The person with the MOST correct entries and bonus entries at the end of the contest will win their choice of either a Kindle Fire or a Nook Tablet, a $100 Amazon or Barnes & Noble gift card (depending on which reader your choose), and a copy of all our WIP and PNP books published any time during this year!
Bonus entries may be earned three ways:
- By “liking” all three Facebook pages – Write Integrity, Pix-N-Pens, and Magnificent Hope – just be sure to let us know you liked us in your first contest entry, and we’ll add the bonus points.
- Bonus entries will also be given for anyone submitting by e-mail one or more photos taken with Magnificent Hope AND at least one of our books anywhere on her journey. One photo per location, please. (For example, if you bump into Magnificent Hope at a Jennifer Fromke event in North Carolina and take ten photos with her at that same event, only one photo will count. But if you bump into Magnificent Hope at Jennifer’s event, and then again at an event with Dianne E. Butts, you can take photos both places and get two bonus entries!) Send your photos in .jpeg format, attached to an email, and we may use them in blog posts or perhaps even a book.
- Telling your family and friends about Magnificent Hope, Hope Tour 2012, and our books and authors – through Facebook, Twitter, blog posts, interviews with our authors or Magnificent Hope, or other ways. One share per week gets you an extra entry, so send us your links by e-mail so we can tally your points.
(If you have trouble using the links, the e-mail address to send entries to is: magnificenthope [at] yahoo [dot] com.)
For those of you coming on board in the middle of the contest, you can go back and enter the previous weeks whenever you wish. Just find the "Where in the World is Magnificent Hope?" contest links in the list below and submit your best guess for each week.
