Hello dear ones. 🙂
It is my birthday today (38 years!!! :-)) and I’m so happy to celebrate by hosting a giveaway for the gorgeous new Daily Truths art book from the Brave Girls Club: “A Little Bird Told Me (30 days of beautiful words and beautiful art for your beautiful soul)” written and illustrated by Melody Ross.
If you’ve been reading here for any length of time, you know how much the daily emails from the Brave Girls Club have meant to me on my own journey of healing and restoration. (Click here for one such occasion) So I was thrilled to bits when The Brave Girls Club gave me two copies of this beautifully bound volume filled with messages of hope and truth – one for me and the other to share with one of you.
I love Melody’s forward in the book:
“Dear beautiful, phenomenal girl,
There was a time in my life when I was very very very broken…a time when I truly believed that I would always be broken. So many lies ran through my head and my heart, breaking me even more.
One day I closed my eyes and asked…”What is the truth about who I am?” and “What is the truth about the painful life situations I keep finding myself in? What do they mean about me?”
Inside of this book are the answers I received as I spent many days in solitude asking those questions over and over again.
I wrote these messages down because I knew they were not just for me, but for every single girl alive.
These are messages from ‘a little bird’…an all-loving little bird who really knows a thing or two about the truth…and about you…and about me.
My biggest hope is that you will really let yourself believe all of the words in this book…because I know that they are true about you…I know it without a single doubt.
You are so very very very loved.
To enter this giveaway, simply leave a comment here, on Facebook, or send me an email (ramblingtart at gmail dot com) with two things:
- The name of a brave woman who inspires you.
- One brave thing you’ve done this year.
I can’t wait to hear about the courageous women and choices in your life. 🙂
The Brave Girls Club Giveaway will run from November 27th to December 3rd. All names will be placed in Bear’s baseball cap and swirled around and he will choose one winner. Please make sure you include your email address in your comment so I can contact you if you win. The winner will be announced on December 3, 2012.

Wishing you a beautiful week as I leave you with a few words from Melody Ross:
“You know so much more now than you used to know. You have gained so much more strength than you used to have. You are so much more courageous than you used to be. You are so much wiser than you used to be.
How did you get there? Well…probably by making some mistakes and learning from them, falling on your face and getting back up, enduring unfair and painful circumstances that you were not expecting, and by deciding to make a horrible situation into a positive one.
Because you see, dear friend, that is how we learn. That is how we grow, and that is how we become who we are meant to become. So if this is one of those days when you are wondering “WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?” and “HOW DID I GET HERE?”, just know for sure that you are going to get through it all just fine, because you have felt this way before, you have done hard things before, and you have MADE IT through it all before.
And you came out stronger, better, wiser, braver, and smarter than you were before it all happened, just like you will this time.
You are doing a WONDERFUL JOB at living your life and being you. Keep up the great work.
You are so very loved. xoxo”
