If something cool happens, post a description about that experience
on the Awaken Your Senses FB Page or Beth or Brent’s blogs. (All
entries must be submitted by Sunday at noon.) Brent and Beth
will choose a winner on Sunday evening and that person will receive a
$25 gift card for a gift related to TOUCH. Brent and Beth will
also do a drawing from the names of everyone who participated each week
and the weekly winner of the random drawing will receive an autographed
copy of Awaken Your Senses. The winners will be announced on
Awaken Your Senses Facebook Page and Brent and Beth’s blogs on each
Monday when a new sense begins!
