Amazazing Giveaways + New Friends = Authentic People Blog Party!

I've been thinking ...

... and after hearing all of your opinions on what makes a blog special - worth reading - I've decided that I need to do something to help promote real blogging.

People who are willing to bare their souls to one another, speak frankly and honestly, and sing their own song - whether it is one of pleasant routine, victory over adversity, struggle and sorrow, or any unique melody - those are the people that I'm proud to know. Those are the voices of hope through every melancholy, tragic, humorous, and wonderful moment in life.

I want to praise my Lord and Savior for a world full of souls worth truly knowing.

Starting on November 11 (12:00 AM CST), I will be hosting a two week long blog party (ending on November 24 at 11:59 PM CST) that is all about the authenticity of living souls. Yours & mine ... collectively, the divinity and nature of Christ, displayed in His cherished creation.

Each moment is a new opportunity to bring glory to God. The smiles that flash across our faces defy the fallen state of humanity. The hope that emanates from our hearts when we're moved by a special melody, statement, or written line, exposes a Creator that dwells in the soaring moments of epiphany. Those special moments of looking into the wide eyes of a loved one that whisper a requite, or letting the wind blow your hair where it may, rather than fighting against it ... in those moments, our spirits are revealed to us.

I feel like my purpose in blogging is and always has been to encourage people to be honest with themselves and with others. In honesty, friendships are formed that may have never bonded otherwise. I want the opportunity to get to know YOU in this way.

There will be

a fun questionnaire,
photo prompts,

...and most importantly, the opportunity to find and bond with people like you ... and unlike you. The only catch is that you must be completely and unapologetically yourself! :)

I'm extremely excited about this! If you're not already a follower here at Rear Window, make sure to subscribe, so you can stay updated on developments! Check back soon for fun questions to answer in your party post, and giveaway announcements!
