Mother’s Day Giveaway

Mother’s Day is almost here and, while I’m racking my brain trying to think of a perfect, last-minute Mother’s Day gift for my mum and my mother-in-law, I have something for YOU!

I’m giving away three music DVDs featuring the talented Fountainview Academy kids.

Fountainview Academy is a Christian boarding school located in the middle of nowhere between Lillooet and Lytton, here in beautiful British Columbia. The school is known for their strong music program and boasts an orchestra and choir that perform well-known Christian music.

A few years ago, they started recording videos, with stunning footage of them performing everywhere from the tops of mountains to he seaside, as well as the Kettle Valley Steam Train. This summer they will embark on a musical tour of Europe, filming at sites significant to the Reformation.

The video I have on offer was filmed two years ago, in Hawaii, and it’s called Help in Daily Living. Each case includes 1 DVD with 14 songs and student interviews (about 2.5 hours in length), and a Help in Daily Living booklet.

Here’s a description, from the website:

Hear young people share candidly of their own struggles, failures, and victories with God’s help; read the encouraging, inspired thoughts from the little book: Help in Daily Living; see smiles on those same  young people’s faces as they sing and play timeless gospel songs of hope and encouragement, and then enjoy the plush scenes of nature from the tropical island of Kauai, Hawaii — from the thundering ocean surf to breath-taking mountain vistas or lush tropical gardens.”

So here’s the deal. Leave a comment, telling me your favourite piece of advice your mom ever gave you. Sunday morning, I’ll draw three names from the pot. You don’t have to be a mother to enter, but you should be from North America because that’s the system these dvds play on (although if you’re from abroad I will still send it to you – just be forewarned).

I can’t wait to read your favourite words of wisdom, from Mom!

  1. I used to hate wearing toques in the winter and messing up my hair. So my mom would always remind me, “there’s nothing cool about a cold noggin!”

  2. Best piece of advice received from my mother? When I was of appropriate dating age, she explained to me that men like to imagine what women look like under their clothing. Wearing a long skirt can drive a man crazy. When I first met my current husband, I was wearing a long skirt. He mentioned that fact a couple of years into our marriage. He said that he was curious about what my legs looked like. Guess my mom was wise!

  3. Pay the extra and buy good quality products. It will actually cost you less in the long run and it feels so much better. My mom’s advice has served me well and it’s something I now try to pass on to my own kids.
