We won’t do this every week, but since we are just starting we wanted to remind you to hop over to the Bloom Blog to watch our weekly video discussion and then join us on the ning community to further discuss the intro and chapter one.
PS – be sure to notice our funny expressions that vimeo captured in the start frame. Obviously, vanity is not our top priority.

I have GREAT news to share!!! we had almost 300 requests for books, and because of your incredible generosity, we are able to get everyone a copy!!!! AMAZING!!!! There are also over 200 people who have already joined the ning site and are chatting it up over there.
The only ones we are unable to get out right now are to other countries, and I do apologize about that. Hopefully we will be better at that with the next book.
SO, if you requested a book and have not received an email from me saying otherwise, you should be receiving your copy shortly. If you have not received it in a week or so, please feel free to email me and I will notify your sponsor to make sure everything is on track.
If you are one of the people who requested a book, please hop over to http://bloomcommunity.ning.com/ and sign up so that you can jump into conversation. It is already exceeding our expectations and is really already feeling like community. Thank you Jesus!!!!
I am LOVING the book, and wanted to take this opportunity to publicly thank Cook Publishers for sending 20 complimentary copies to us. I would also love to thank all of you who have selflessly offered to gift others with the book-I am blown away by the way the body of Christ has stepped up and helped so much. I know we are all feeling the crunch of the economy right now, and to see this love in action is humbling to say the least. I am so proud to consider you all friends, and I can’t wait to get to know you better.
If you haven’t already, please sign up to follow our blog and also, sign into our ning site. We’re up and running, thanking the Lord for an opportunity to get to know Him (and each other) better.
Much love and gratitude to you all today,
Update on the book club…
We are so excited that so many people will be joining us, but at this point we are unable to commit to sending them to anyone else. We are doing our best to get them to the people who have already emailed, and should funds become available, we will let you know!!!
We are working on a way to get a discount, and have a couple other ideas, so we will keep you posted as we find out about those. If you want to sponsor someone’s book, please email me and let me know (see previous post for details).
Because it is going to take awhile to get all of these together, we are going to push back the start date to September 13th. Sorry we have had to change it a few times, we weren’t quite expecting the response 🙂
It is going to be great!!!! Can’t wait to dig in with you all!!!!
