We are so excited to begin reading Kelly Minter’s The Fitting Room as a community.
We hope this post will answer some logistical questions for you! If you have additional questions, please feel free to leave them in the comments section below.
What to Expect
Each Sunday, starting June 5, we will post a video discussing a chapter or several chapters of the book with Kelly. You are not going to want to miss these videos. Kelly’s perspective adds so much color to the chapters. We have filmed all the videos, and it was such a treat to sit on Kelly’s couch and discuss what it means to clothe ourselves in Godliness.
Buy a Book, Give a Book – and Get Free Shipping!
The Fitting Room is on sale for $10 on DaySpring.com THIS WEEK ONLY. This is the cheapest you will find it anywhere!
When Angie and I first started Bloom almost two years ago, it was very important that everyone be able to participate, regardless of ability to purchase a book.
If you find yourself in a very difficult financial season and are unable to purchase a book, from Wednesday through Friday this week (5/18-5/20) you can fill out a form requesting a free book. (The form will be posted on this page on Wednesday.) We ask that you please be very honest and only request a book if you truly cannot afford the $10. We only have a limited quantity to give away that largely depends on how many sponsors/donations we get.
This is where the community of Bloom beautifully shows up.
If you are able to purchase a book for someone in need, DaySpring has set up a sweet deal for you starting today.
In addition to purchasing your own book, you can choose to purchase a second book for someone in need for an additional $10. (Feel free to give more than one if you can! To purchase a “Sponsor” book, just go here, click on the image of The Fitting Room with the green sponsor button on it and purchase the Sponsor book for $10. This option expires May 23)
If you purchase two or more books you get FREE shipping on your book – and DaySpring will take care of getting your donated book to a fellow Bloomie in need. Just use coupon code: BLOOMBOOK (If any other wonderful DaySpring products fall into your shopping cart, those will ship free too! This code will also work if you are purchasing multiple books for yourself).
We are so excited and thankful that DaySpring is managing all the coordination of the donated books – and taking care of the shipping. What a blessing!
With each Bloom book selection, we are always amazed by the community of women who step forward and buy books for their fellow sisters in Christ. THANK YOU to those of you who are able to generously give.
If you have additional questions about the sponsor program please visit the FAQ page.
