Tuesday's {Tip} Preparing RAKs and our RAK Winners!

Today I thought I would share a tip on how I usually create RAK boxes and RAKs. I stored more than I gave away in the last year but in our new home, I want to save it and send it fairly quickly. No more hanging onto things for RAKs and not sending them. What's the point in that?

Anyway, to save things for RAKs, I have one location where I store a few small empty boxes and mailers. Then as I come across things that are either duplicates or that I no longer use, I go ahead and put them in the boxes. Once the box is full or I feel like having a give-away, I have a box ready to go.

I also do this with books. When I get duplicates from Paperbackswap or I find a book at a great price, I buy several. I then have a box where I keep books to give away as RAKs. I love to bless others, and this is a way to have things on hand. So, with that little tip out there, it's time to share the newest RAK winners.

The RAK winners of the FaithNotes Sermon Note Keeper chosen by random.org are #28, #3, and #18. Yes, I chose 3 winners instead of 1. I hope that's okay! :) Those numbers belong to:

TLady said... I LOVE your little Sermon Notebook! I've ALWAYS taken notes in church. TODAY, we went to church, looking for a NEW CHURCH! We haven't been in church for nearly 7 years! (We went through some really rough times, from family, school, work AND church; circumstances led us to move away from everything & everyone we knew.) Everything that happened left us broken hearted!It's taken us this long to even WANT TO look for a church home again! We went to church this morning & I had to ask my daughter for her tablet she kept in her purse! Which made me WISH I had remembered to get myself a new notebook just for sermons! I'll be looking around at the store to find a notebook...Thanks for the opportunity to win! August 12, 2012 3:42 PM

JoAnn said... I love the note book for sermons. It would be easy to fix one using that one as a guide. I am so happy that you will be starting back the scripture challenge! I really enjoy your writings and find them very inspirational. Keep up the good work. August 12, 2012 6:14 PM

If each of you could please e-mail your address to me, I will get a book out to you right away. Congrats to each of you, and I pray you will enjoy using it as much as I do!

And a little bit about this notebook I am giving away. It is published by Barbour Publishing, and I purchase them from Christianbook.com. Barbour Publishing also makes other titles including (click each title to see each book):

FaithNotes Prayer and Praise Organizer
FaithNotes Bible Study Notebook
FaithNotes Devotional Journal
FaithNotes Sermon Note Keeper

Each book originally costs $7.99 but I pay between $3.49-$3.99 because I am a member of Christianbook.com. It costs $5 a year to become a member and is totally worth it! If you are not a member, these books cost $5.99 each which is still cheaper than amazon.com (my "go to" store).

I hope you have found this helpful, and congrats again to each of you again. Have a blessed Tuesday everyone!

TLady, I checked the link for my e-mail and it is working and correct. Can you try again? I will post it here too for you and Tracy:


Hope to hear from you soon. I can mail your book today if I can get your address. Blessings,

TLady said...

I just e-mailed you again with the address you gave me. It hasn't come back yet! :)
I was trying to e-mail you through the e-mail in your All About You section of your blog. I DID try that again before I got your e-mail & that one DID come back. Thanks for visiting my blog! AND leaving me such a NICE COMMENT! :)
THANK YOU for your generosity! :)

Patter, I actually went there as I am a member also and purchased quite a few of the Sermon notebooks for gifts along with one for me and I also purchased a couple of prayer journals and the the daily devotion book for our Gateway Landing guys. Thanks for all the information.
