a thank you giveaway

We are well into June now, but I’m still smiling from a whirlwind release month. Thank you so much to everyone who has stepped into Cooper and Sloane’s world and helped spread the word about their story — AND Nick and Chelsea’s, for that matter!

I wish I could bake everyone Sloane’s toffee chocolate chip cookies for their love and support, but I do have a few things to give away.

In honor of Sloane’s spreadsheet-loving ways and the fact that Chelsea from That’s When I Knew runs a planner business, our grand prize is a set of undated, six-month Cultivate What Matters Powersheets, a signed paperback of With No Reservations, and an electronic copy of the Love at First Laugh novella collection featuring That’s When I Knew. You can keep it for yourself or pay it forward to a friend.

If you’ve followed me on social media for any length of time, you know how much I love my Powersheets. They’re not a planner but a set of worksheets that help you identify your goals at the beginning, sort through what’s working and not working for you in your efforts, and include a section for each month to prioritize and create action steps so you can make progress. I have used them to motivate myself to go to the gym more, reach writing goals, form new habits, and be more intentional about my YESes and NOs.

They promote progress not perfection, designed to be messy and meaningful. Right now, they’re sold out until next year, but I snagged a teal set because I’d love to help one of my friends reach his/her goals in the second half of 2017. Three other winners will get copies of my sisters’ novels, Then There Was You by Kara Isaac, the Of Rags and Riches historical romance collection featuring my sisters Anne Love and Jaime Jo Wright, and Sarah Varland’s latest romantic suspense, Perilous Homecoming.

(ETA: Giveaway closed and winners have been notified!)

To enter, comment telling us what dream or habit you would use the Powersheets for. (Or if you just want some books!)

For additional entries, you can leave separate comments telling me if you have:

Thank you so much, y’all! I’m convinced I have the best friends and readers <3 While I can’t bake cookies for everyone, you can find Sloane’s cookie recipe and more by downloading this free PDF! Bon appetit!

    HI! I like your author page on Facebook 🙂

  • sabrinatemplin says:

    Hi Laurie! I have signed up for your emails also! 🙂 I’m glad you did this as I thought I was already signed up! Thank you so much for the recipes also! Have a great day! 😀

  • This is a great giveaway (and I must try those cookies sometime!). Of course I like your Author page. 🙂

  • I left reviews for both With No Reservations and Love At First Laugh collection on Amazon and Goodreads. No book I’ve started since has held a candle to them.

  • Hello!! I will use the power sheets to accomplish some of my writing goals. I’ve liked the FB page, signed up for emails, and follow you on Instagram!

  • Goals, what are those? Obviously I need these powersheets.

  • I am a dreamer and love setting goals but am not very good at writing them down. I have a small business I’m trying to launch and writing things down would be immensely helpful to that end. I’ve been so curious about the powersheets!

  • Oh man, I would need it for organizing my life with homeschooling and keeping up on decluttering the house! I need to look into this. I’m not good at goals and I think I need this kind of help. LOL

  • I like your FB author page!!

  • Already on your newsletter list!

  • Arletta Bartel Boulton says:

    Well, I haven’t ever seen powersheets in person, so I need to take a closer look at them. I would like to track the books I read in one year. There are other areas in my life that could stand to get more organized – including organizing/simplifying my clutter. And yes, I would just love to win books, regardless. 🙂 There’s nothing quite like getting a book in the mail to offset all the bills.

  • Gigi orsillo says:

    Instagram and fb follower!! — I would love power sheets to organize my new school year and goals and dreams for my household!!!

  • You are the cutest and I love how well you love your readers 🙂 I would use the Powersheets for planning meals/working on hospitality, and of course…writing goals!

  • I’ve left Amazon reviews for With No Reservations and the Love at First Laugh collection.

  • Jenn Stevens says:

    Hi! I’d use those gorgeous power sheets to help juggle grad school and work with training for a half marathon, being diligent with my Weight Watchers program, and organizing+leading the MBA student association at school.

  • Candace Day says:

    I will use the powerbook for my dreams with Plexus!! I aspire to continue to help people feel better and pursue health and financial freedom with this company, and these power sheets will help me set my goals for each day, month and year in order for me to achieve those goals!!

    And, I totally wanted to buy these powersheets but they sold out too fast! I would LOVE to use them to write down some dreams regarding a potential book idea, conference idea and more. 🙂

  • Would love to be entered for the goal setting worksheets! And yep, I’d be using them to write a novel (or two)! Awesome giveaway!

  • I could use this to keep track of all the influencer books I read; book name, author name, release date, sites reviewed on, memes created, shares, etc.

  • Chanel M. says:

    I can use the Powersheets for my organizing my small business and creating goals from week to week. And writing.

  • Chanel M. says:

    I followed you Author’s Facebook page.

    And I signed up for your email newsletter.

  • Oh my goodness! I just heard about these yesterday and have been enthralled! Where was this 30 years ago? I absolutely love the idea of cultivating our life, our dreams, our relationships. My word for this year is Thrive and it really meshes well with the whole cultivate theme.

    I would use them to help focus my “thriving” on writing (need those goals to keep me on the path! It’s hard getting back into it!), on my new eating plan (I want to be healthy and enjoy all this thriving), and my relationships (staying in touch with friends while working outside the home AND writing is difficult.).
    So that’s what I would use it for. 😉

    I follow you on Instagram. I already like your FB page. I got your newsletter. And while I haven’t posted a review yet, I WILL. I am 2/3’s through the novella collection and am almost to YOURS. And I have your LI book and will read it next. 😉

    Whew…not sure why my comment is soooo much longer than everyone else’s.

  • Jenifer Holland says:

    Would love to read your book! Heading to FB and IG to follow as we speak 🙂

  • First of all, love your books 🙂 okay…got that out. Yes, I liked Facebook, follow instagram, left review and signed up for newsletter.
    As for those awesome power sheets….I need to get into shape and lost some weight. It’s a struggle for me. Need some motivation. I checked into those when I first saw you talk about them quite awhile ago, but haven’t quite made the plunge yet. Maybe now is the time!!!

  • I need to be better about planning healthy meals. Perhaps powersheets would help? But I really like books!

  • Mary Preston says:

    Already on the mailing list.

  • Mary Preston says:

    I can see myself having fun with the books. I like to doodle and leave notes.

  • Laura Reese says:

    We have had monthly goals for house remodeling since we bought our house four years ago. It’s slow going! And I feel like we’ve hit a lull.
    The power sheets might help me get us back on track for the next surge!

  • Laura Reese says:

    And I like your Facebook page

    I have done all of the things above – left a review for both, follow in Instagram, like your author page, and get your emails!!

  • Well, of COURSE I liked your FB page! <3 (And what a FAB giveaway!!!!!!)

    I hadn’t heard about the powersheets before, but I’m sure they would come in handy as I work with Christian Authors as a VA. Love the thought process behind them and can totally see how helpful they would be!
