5 Year Anniversary and Giveaway!


I am so excited to share that my blog, Encouraging Words from the Tea Queen, celebrated its five year birthday in February of this year!  It is so incredible to realize how long I have been writing and working on my blog, and I am so grateful for all of the lovely adventures my blog has led me to.  The Lord has given me so many wonderful opportunities because of my blog, and I just want to say thank you to Him and to all of you who have gone on this journey with me.  

In celebration of my five year anniversary, I wanted to post a literary giveaway.  I will be giving the following books away to a splendid reader:  Death by Darjeeling by Laura Childs (paperback), The Complete Works of Jane Austen (ebook), and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis (paperback) 

 




My heart is full, and I am so happy that I get to share my love of reading and writing with all of you!  Happy reading my friends and good luck in the giveaway!
