I want to give a little present to a hard-working single mama out there. Leave me a comment here and I'll enter you for a chance to win a set of my books: Because I Said So (and other tales from a less-than-perfect parent), You'll Lose the Baby Weight (and other lies about pregnancy and childbirth), and the books to which I contributed: Pearl Girls (encountering grit, experiencing grace), and Mother of Pearl (luminous legacies and iridescent faith). I'll choose one random winner Friday, February 15. Good luck!
