A Whisper of Freedom Blog Tour

About the book: Battles heat up…not only those being waged by the soldiers on both sides fighting for Spain, but in the hearts and minds of the men and women who must sacrifice more than their dreams to save the lives of their loved ones.

In this meticulously researched novel, brave and idealistic Sophie, Philip, Jose, and Deion realize their only hope for freedom is escaping Spain's borders.

By continuing the story of this band of volunteers during the Spanish Civil War, A Whisper of Freedom proves that there are whispers of hope and liberty that resonate through even the darkest night.

Here are the MEME questions! I tag all my readers!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1. List three things you would do with a chest full of gold (assuming you got to keep it!)

2. List three charities/missions/organizations you support (and why).

3. List three ways you have volunteered your time/services.

4. List three things you keep "hidden" when company comes over.

5. List the last three things you've lost.

6. List the last three things you've found.

Here are my answers:
1. List three things you would do with a chest full of gold (assuming you got to keep it!)

First, I would be selfish and take that trip to Scotland I've been planning all my life. Second, I would build a special place where I could do my crafts and writing without worrying about the clutter. And third, I would like to say I would put the rest into savings, but since interest rates are so terrible, I might just dig a hole and bury it.

2. List three charities/missions/organizations you support (and why).

Well, as missionaries we are a charity/mission/organization. We provide used clothing and food to the people we work with here in Costa Rica, as well as sharing God´s Word with them.

3. List three ways you have volunteered your time/services.

I teach crafts to women in situations of domestic violence and extreme poverty. I direct the music service at the church as well as acting as superintendent of the Sunday School classes. I also bring the devotion during the weekly feedings for the children who live near the church.

4. List three things you keep "hidden" when company comes over.

I don´t hide things. People already know that if they can´t stand the clutter they shouldn´t stop by.

5. List the last three things you've lost.

The devotional book I have been teaching out of (thank goodness I had made thorough notes), a receipt for a purchase (I know it is here somewhere because I never throw anything away), and my extra pair of glasses.

6. List the last three things you've found.

An old manuscript that I had been searching for, a half-finished quilt that had gotten packed in the wrong box, and my Nova Menco CD that had gotten buried under the clutter several months ago. (Obviously, I am not a very good housekeeper!)

Okay, Readers......Now it is your turn. Do the Meme.


Three brave "players" will be selected at random to win their own lost gold (Gourmet chocolate coins and all three books in the Chronicles of the Spanish Civil War series). To enter all you have to do is answer the MEME on your blog and then leave a comment on Tricia’s blog tour post here http://triciagoyer.blogspot.com/2008/03/whisper-of-freedom-meme-sticky-post.html that you’ve posted your MEME. Easy.

Blog Tour Post: please link to the schedule in your blog tour post. Thanks. J

I may adopt that as my motto...ha, ha!

Thanks so much for playing along!

Blessings,
