I love to read books. With many of us home more often than we thought we would be this Summer, reading is a great way to occupy your time.

I had the opportunity to be a part of the launch team for a book called Fearless & Free. The book is written by Victoria Osteen.

I recently finished reading the book. I loved the book so much I want to giveaway a copy of this book to a lucky reader.

The timing of the release of the book was absolutely all God with all that is going in the country right now. I think this book has great words of encouragement as well as nuggets to help everyone right now.

The way I read this book was as a morning devotional each day. I read a Chapter a day which gave me nuggets to start my day. Sharing a specific topic, prayer, bible verses for reflection and so  much more.

A perfect book to dive into this Summer to encourage you Spiritual. Enter to win and share it with a friend.
