Welcome UBP 08 to Mel's World

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

Hey There Everyone from the Ultimate Blog Party 2008!!!

Welcome to Mel's World, my name is Melissa Mashburn and I wanted to take a minute to say THANKS to each and every one of you for stopping by! Each and every day there is something goofy, funny, or down right amazing that happens in each and every one of our lives. Mel's World is a place for me to share with you my love for Christ, for my family, and for my friends. Faith, Family, Friends, Live, Laugh, Love are the cornerstone's of what Mel's World is all about.

I hope you take some time this week to stay and visit a bit! I would love to hear from you! In honor of your coming to visit I have a couple things I would like to Give Away this week...check them out below!

Prize Package #1 -
(I won this same book over at my friend Mindy's blog and loved it so much I wanted to pass along another copy to one of you blessed chicks!)
"Confessions of a Prayer Wimp" book by Mary Pierce
a pretty pink journal with "This is the Day that the Lord has Made" on the front
a pretty gel pen
and a packet of cappuccino to enjoy while reading your book.

Prize Package #2 -
"Living in Love with Jesus" book by Dee Brestin & Kathy Troccoli
a pretty blue journal with "Delight yourself in the Lord" on the front
a pretty gel pen
and a packet of hot cocoa to enjoy while reading your book.

I'd also like to take a minute to invite you to come back on Sunday's for my weekly devotional called "Speak to My Soul Sunday". Each and every week I take a thought and an idea (real life) and tie it all together with God's word and His truth. It would be an honor for me to have you come and visit.

I would like to take one more minute to let you know about another blog I write called Mel's World Travel Biz . It would be so cool if you would stop by and visit me over at my "work" blog.

You can click here and check out the cool things I am giving away over there!!! Make sure you stop by and visit me there too, I have some great information and stuff ready for those of you who are looking to work from home!

This is my first visit to your blog and I'm looking forward to revisiting on Sundays! My 5 young children have been sick for the last few weeks and now we've caught another illness... so I've been desperately missing some Sunday morning encouragement! :-) How do we enter your giveaway? Just by leaving a comment? The books look great!

Hi Mel,

Thanks for stopping by my "par-tay" and leaving a comment. I am a former south floridian (I lived there from 1989-1996)and after a cold day like today, I am missing it like crazy!

LOL! Confessions of a prayer wimp. Now that's a good book title. (I also like the cover. Is it bad that I judge books by their covers? Also blogs? Yours passes inspection. HA!)
