Giveaway at Loraine Nunley's website: The Memory Jar and The Kissing Bridge by Tricia Goyer #BookGiveaway

Today’s book giveaway is for two inspirational Amish fiction books: The Memory Jar and The Kissing Bridge by Tricia Goyer. I also happen to have another copy of The Kissing Bridge so a second winner will be drawn for that!

Synopsis from the back of the books:

The Memory Jar: Every year, a number of young Amish men descend on the cozy mountain town of West Kootenai, Montana, arriving in the spring to live there for six months and receive “resident” status for the hunting season in the fall. They arrive as bachelors, but some go home with brides.

Sarah Shelter has lived in West Kootenai for the last ten years and wonders if she will ever fall in love. Since the tragic death of her best friend, she saves her memories in a jar along with the small items connected with them. For just as long, she’s also been carrying around her emotions instead of allowing them to penetrate deep into her heart. Until she meets Jathan Schrock.

Can this kind and gentle man break down her walls, and can Sarah risk her heart to finally achieve her dreams?

The Kissing Bridge: On the day of her sister’s death, Rebecca Troyer took her first step away from the Amish.

Rebecca had always strayed a little outside the fold — a job at an Englisch bakery, long weekends with non- Amish friends — but nothing could have prepared her family for what she is about to do: Rebecca is abandoning the community to attend nursing school. She is headed to college, into “the world.”

But she has to make it across the country first.

When she stops in West Kootenai, at the home of a lapsed Amish friend from her youth, Rebecca finds a lot more in Montana than she bargained for — namely a handsome working man named Caleb Hooley.

Caleb is at a crossroad of his own. A daredevil bachelor with high standards, he has decided he’ll never find an Amish woman who can quench his thirst for adventure. Needless to say, the pretty Amish woman who has fled her community in secret catches his attention immediately.

As hearts are opened and secrets are revealed, Rebecca and Caleb find they have much more in common than just their Amish background. But can this runaway find love with a risk-taker who has lost his faith in God? All it will take is one week in the wilderness to find out…

  1. I started scrapbooking many years ago. While I have lapsed quite a bit with the books I need to complete, it always brings back great memories when I look at the pictures I’ve collected!

  2. These two books sound wonderful. I have enjoyed every Tricia Goyer book I have read.

  3. I have pictures and school work from homeschooling my four kids. And one old old scrapbook.

    1. Me too Paula! It’s funny you mention the homeschooling paperwork because I just spent some time this weekend organizing and putting away my kids schoolwork from this past year. Thanks for sharing! πŸ™‚

    1. I love our home movies Barb! My children will go through times when they will pull them all out and binge watch them. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing.

  4. I have pictures mainly, a few books, some antiques and things that belonged to them that I just won’t part with. I have lost both parents and my sister so I don’t listen if someone says to toss things out.

    1. It is so important to have the memories and if those things help you keep them I think that is great! Thanks for sharing Linda. πŸ™‚

  5. I have a few picture books left. I have given several away to my children for their memories πŸ™‚ I love all Tricia Goyer books!

  6. Pictures and movie film help to keep my memories alive. After the passing of our daughter at the age of 17, these became even more precious to us. It brings back the happy times and special moments in her life. Then with the passing of my parents, it’s back to the photos to add to our memory files. I will say however, that the most precious memories are in our mind’s eye that providing some disease like Alzheimer doesn’t steel from us are more precious than gold. Sadly, that’s what happen to my Mom and it was sad to realize that those memories were wiped from her mind or tucked so deep that we couldn’t bring them up although we never stopped trying. <3

    1. Aww Kay. I am so touched that you would share that with us. It is so important to cultivate those memories for the times when we are separated from our loved ones. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. πŸ™‚

  7. I tend to take a lot of pictures. I tried scrap booking but at the time with two little kiddos it was just too much.

    1. LOL Lori, I so get that. I did the same thing. I had really good intentions for scrap booking when my oldest kids were babies, but it fell by the wayside. I’m getting back to organizing my pictures as my kids get older and I can create photo books online. Thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚

  8. I scrapbook and have albums of photos and keepsakes. Thank you for the chance and have a blessed and happy day.

  9. I haven’t been good about keeping albums or scrapbooking. I appreciated Facebook memories!

  10. I have lots of photos. I’ve also done baby books for both my kids and wrote a diary for both of them with their first year of life.
    We also have lots of home movies including our wedding 36 yrs ago.

  11. My Sister had all our home movies from when we were kids but on DVD. I also have lots of photos and mementos.

  12. Mostly pictures to keep the memories alive although I do keep playbills from my daughters’ school concerts, dramas, recitals and dance performances.

  13. Many of my memories are in my old journals and photos, but I also grew up having a “memory box.” We put papers and little trinkets in it to keep as we liked when we were children. Now having children of my own they also have a container for their memories!

  14. I have started multiple journals but never seem to keep up with them! I also have a terrible memory. A jar would maybe help.

    1. I can relate to that Dianna. I have a journal that I write in periodically. Veeerry periodically. I’ll get on a journaling kick and do it for a short time and then I’ll forget about it. But I will say that I’ve enjoyed revisiting even those sparse entries. Thanks for commenting. πŸ™‚
