Every once in a while I like to have a little give-a-way.

Don'tcha just love the "Eat Your Peas" books?
I bought one for my best friend and went thru and wrote things on a lot of the pages just for her!!!

This one is about FAITH!!
And, there's a little sign to go along with the book that has a verse of scripture that always reminds me of my friend, Ms. Norma!!!

So.....how do you win?
All you've gotta do is follow me here at Breathing In Jesus.
You can do that at the bottom of the page.
Then, leave a comment and let me know.....
what is your favorite word.....
or words!!!
And, why is that a favorite.....
how has that word played a role in your life?
Does it go along with a favorite verse of scripture
I'll go first!!!
My favorite word is.....


And, I always think of Jeremiah 29:11-13 when I hear the word HOPE!!!

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. 
 “They are plans for good and not for disaster, 
to give you a future and a hope.  
In those days when you pray, 
I will listen.
If you look for me wholeheartedly, 
you will find me.

Breathing in Jesus,


I'll announce the winner next Monday, November 4th!


  1. Hope really speaks to me. With Jesus, we have hope that a future filled with promise is available to all. To me, it's almost synonymous with the word faith. Where one exists, so too does the other.

  2. Good morning, Deb. I like the way you do your give aways! JOY is the word that comes to me over and over again. I think that is probably why my blog title is JOYful in His Presence. Psalm 16:11 says "in thy presence is fullness of JOY"...The world will not give us JOY because material things can not satisfy us like Jesus can and does.

  3. My current favorite word is "Grace"....John 1:16 says, "Indeed, we have all received grace after grace from His fullness..."

  4. My word is also Hope. This word stands in white letters on my windowsill. So, if I pass with my bike my home and I see those letters: hope blooms in my heart :-) He is our hope. Your text has a great meaning for me too. So, I live too far for a giveaway ... but I wanted to say this: Never lose HOPE ... because He lives

  5. My favorite verse is Jeremiah 29:11-13 because this is God's promise to me and my family amen
    I found your facebook page and liked it because of the name "Jeremiah 29:11" Such a blessing thank you
    and may God bless you and use you to bring to bring the word and blessing to our lives amen !!!

  6. My favorite word is MERCY. When I hear it, I always think of the Mercy given to me at Calvary.

  7. My favorite word is Faith. I have to remind myself sometimes to "just have Faith " and everything will be alright.

  8. One of my favorite words is FAITH. I have to remind myself when I am impatient about something to "just have Faith" and everything will be ok.

  9. Debbie, as you know my history, my favorite is "God strengthens me."

  10. I guess you already know but FAITH is one of my favorite words. Keeping the faith because I know HE is the one that knows my future. -- My scripture of faith scripture----ISAIAH 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength: they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk, and not faint.

  11. I've never read any of these books. They look good. You know my favorite word....FAITH! Love it.

  12. I favorite word is Mercy.

    Mercy walked in and pleaded my case
    Called to the stand God's saving grace
    The blood was presented that covered my sin
    Forgiven when mercy walked in...

  13. Love Ms. Gayle's comment! They do go hand in hand.
