Challenging believers in Jesus to think and act based on Bible truth.

2015 Thought Driven Action Blog Giveaway

Welcome to the 2015 version of the Thought Driven Action blog giveaway. This week is close to the time of my anniversary of writing a blog (eight or nine years?), and let’s be honest, I don’t write my blog to be famous.

Why a contest? I get a lot of encouragement in my writing simply by people telling me they appreciate what I do. So I think of my blog more as a ministry to friends and believers I’m connected with rather than some larger sect of the Christian community. To offer a gift or prize for readers is for me akin to just having some fun with friends. I’m blessed to do this, I’ve been challenged recently about giving, and so my wife Julie and I hope to bless someone else! This contest really is that simple.

Prize: $400 cash. Who doesn’t need a little cash this time of year?

Entry: You may enter by answering the questions to the following quiz. You need 9 of 10 answered/correct, plus a brief answer to the last two. Please email your answers to I will confirm your entry once I receive your email. If I have not responded within 24 hours, please follow up to be sure I received your entry. There are no exclusions for entry.

Deadline: You must have your answers in by 11:59 Sunday, November 22.

Encouragement: I don’t think I’ve ever had more than 15 people take the time to enter, so your odds are pretty good if you do!
