33MILES Today & Christmas CD Giveaway!! CLOSED

Congratulations #10 Autumn ~ You Won!!!

A few months ago I got an email from a reader of mine. She casually mentioned that she was married to someone named Chris Lockwood. I knew I recognized the name and emailed her back to ask her if it was Chris Lockwood from 33Miles {a Christian band I love}? It was!!! I have been a long time 33Miles fan and so has Pac Man. Even Krash LOVED one of their older songs “Thank You” when he was about 2{he still does}. He would belt it out in the car, where we kept their CD!

I was thrilled to learn that 33Miles had a new CD, Today, coming out and I was offered review copies and a copy to give away to one of my readers! imageThis also includes their awesome Christmas album too!!!! So, even if you aren’t a 33Miles fan {how could you not be though}, the Christmas album alone is simply beautiful!!! I am always collecting Christmas music and just love having this as a part of my playlist.image

I am currently listening to the Today CD while typing this and I am in love. I have been mostly listening to the Christmas CD for obvious reasons {and I LOVE it}, but I have a feeling that after Christmas, Today will be on a LOT. Pac Man loves 33Miles too and thought it was SO cool that a reader of mine is married to one of the band members!

33Miles is a Christ focused band with amazing talent. I love Christian music that is wonderfully written and preformed but mostly gets the Message right. Christ is very obviously the center of their work. You can read a bit of background information about the band here, and also listen to samples of their music. Here is their touring schedule in case any of you are blessed enough to live close and see them in person. I would love to worship with them if they ever come close to me! They even have a blog too! I loved this quote from Christ Lockwood…

“We need to regroup and refocus, to unplug from all the distractions that keep us from
living like we know who we are,” Chris explains. “Despite our circumstances, we are
people of faith. And like all those listed in the ‘Faith Hall of Fame’ in Hebrews 11, we
have to live today as citizens of heaven
. They didn’t receive the fruition of all they
believed in, all they’d struggled to accomplish. But they kept the faith because they knew
they were meant for the world to come. That should be our goal: to live with eternity in
our hearts


You can buy the Today/Christmas Album combo for only $10 right now on their website!!! I recommend this option, so you can get both for that low price. If you can’t wait and want to download, you can find Today here and Believe {Christmas} here on Amazon. You can here great samples of the music on Amazon too.

I am excited that one of you will win this awesome Today/Believe CD combo set! I am going to leave the contest open for just a few days so the CD can get in the mail to the winner before Christmas so you can enjoy the beautiful Christmas music in time!
