Family Christian Review and $25 Gift Certificate Giveaway

I’m always looking for new sources to find quality books and entertainment for my family, so when the opportunity came up to review Family Christian bookstore and offer a giveaway, I happily said, “yes”.

I received a $25 gift certificate, so I started shopping online.  Family Christian is currently offering a fantastic sale.  On specially marked items, but one, get the other one 50% off.  This sale is on books, DVDs, music and more.  But hurry, the sale ends today, August 11th!

There were so many choices when I shopped online!  I loved how easily the website made it to navigate and find what you’re looking for.  You can either use the search bar at the top, or shop by category.  Even better, shipping is free with a $50 purchase, or you can have your items shipped for free to the store no matter the amount of your purchase.

IMG_8156Two of the books that I was interested in were only available in store, not online.  I looked at the store locator and found that I had a Family Christian not far from my house.  I drove there and was once again impressed with the selection that was available.  Ironically, I didn’t even end up buying the two items I wanted that weren’t available online.  Instead, I decided to purchase the Holman Bible Atlas.  This will be the perfect supplement to Bookworm’s Bible and ancient history studies that we’ll start in a few months.

The Giveaway

One lucky winner will receive a $25 Family Christian gift certificate.  To enter the giveaway, simply head over to the Family Christian website and then leave a comment here stating what you’d buy if you won the gift certificate.
