My Christmas Present to You!

The little girl part of my heart often gets the better of me! I just love presents and surprises. And so a couple of weeks ago, when I was sitting in my cozy chair, thinking about how blessed I was to have to many wonderful people in my life–like you–I thought how fun it would be to give away a tiny gift this season.

When I think of all of the wonderful friends I have met through these years of ministry, wonderful women at conferences, hundreds of letters, countless emails and comments, I am quite blessed and overwhelmed to have heard from and known so many of you!

So, the past couple of weeks, in between the busyness of life, I have edited a little e-booklet to give away to all of my followers of itakejoy and

It is my Christmas present to you!

It is such a blessing for me to hear from so many of you, to read your comments and get your letters! I always wish I could answer them and tell you how much you mean to me and to the Lord.

So, instead, I wanted to give you a little gift from my heart to yours. This little book has 11 devotional readings from ponderings I have had about how to understand joy and to hold fast to the faith  that gives us the strength to walk the days of our lives with joy and hope.

I hope you will enjoy it and tell all of your friends that they can download it, too.

And most of all, may He encourage your heart and bless you and your sweet ones this  Christmas season and fill your heart with a renewed sense of His love and joy!

(If I understand the way this works, you can just look in your inbox for the itakejoy article or subscribe by entering your email in the box in the sidebar and the book will come to your email where you may download it. I hope you enjoy it! And be sure to tell your friends!)

You will receive the eBooklet in tomorrow mornings email article from me, as long as you’re subscribed to! :)

(So sorry for the wait, this is how the delivery service for the free eBook works – it’s all new to me, too!)

    Hi Sally,
    I was so looking forward to downloading, but am unable to :( I am subscribed to your feed, but the link to the download directs me to wordpress which says my username/email is invalid. Any tips? And thank you so much for the gift!

    I am so excited to get the Christmas present you are giving away, but
    when I click on the link to download the Taking Joy to heart ebook, it sends me to a webpage to log in to wordpress.
    Can you tell me what to do?
    Thank you.

    The e-booklet sounds lovely!! How thoughtful and generous of you to give us all a gift like that :-) ((((hugs))) You’re such a sweetheart!

    As has already been mentioned above… the actual downloading isn’t going quite as planned ;-) But I’m looking forward to having a chance to read it if that gets fixed :-)

    Thank you, Sally!

      So everybody—I am stuck here. My friend who loaded this for me is currently asleep–east coast–and I don’t have the login to change it. Try again tomorrow–can’t get a hold of anyone now–will probably take the post down and put it back up tomorrow? So sorry!

      • Kali says

        Aww… You try to give a gift, and run into technical difficulties! That’s not how it’s supposed to go!

        I hope it all works out smoothly for you tomorrow :-)
        (left a facebook msg for you, by the way, if you’re still trying to tinker with it tonight)

      • Kali says

        Ok, I’m confused and reading too fast tonight… Ignore (and feel free to delete ;-) ) all that about msgs and such! Heh.

      Sara, you will receive emails each time there is a new post here, and the link is at the bottom of each one! Bless you!

    Hi Sally, thank you so much! I think I’m already subscribed, but I did it again just in case. :) I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

    Thank you SOOOO much Sally… for allowing the beautiful heart of Jesus shine through you… for pouring out your life for your children & then sharing the wisdom you gleaned from it with all of us… for continuing to host an encouraging weekend even though you grow tired and weary, have a TON on your plate already, and don’t even really enjoy crowds. Your books are always full of inspiration and God’s Word! I imagine hearing your voice as I read them… I can’t wait to read this ebooklet as well. I know you’re not perfect, but I just want you to know that you still exude the love of Jesus… THANK YOU for giving your life as a spiritual act of worship!! I’m sure your life burns as a wonderful incense to our Lord! :)

    Thanks so much for this wonderful gift! I am subscribed to your e-mail and have received the post with the link through the e-mail, however when I click the link it takes me to Word Press and asks for log in information. Any tips?
    Thanks again!

    Thank you so much Sally.
    You inspire me.

    So much more I could add but comments is not the place for personal revelation or a novel about my life. lol

    Just know you make a difference with all that you do for others.

    Merry Christmas to the entire Clarkson family! I feel like I know you all personally. Thank you for the free ebook gift. I look forward to downloading that.

    God Bless!

    I just found this place! So glad I did. I wrote a post last week on desperately longing for mentors and teachers and spiritual parents – and my kind friend suggested your site and your new book. All of this – it just goes right along with what He has been speaking into my life lately. Cool.

    May the Lord reveal Himself to you in new and refreshing ways this Christmas :)

    Thank you Sally for a special Christmas treat! I am envisioning many of us making a warm cup of tea and savoring your words together in spirit. I really appreciate your kindness and insight, and look forward to your e-book on the way. Thank you! Merry Christmas to the Clarkson family!
