  1. What are the books you are excited to buy at OMF lit booth and why?

    I’m a big John Maxwell fan! I actually clip his inspirational articles in the newspaper every Sunday and I’m really, really excited to buy more of his books on timeless lessons on leadership in the coming Manila International Book Fair next week. I already have his “The 21 Laws of Leadership” and it has been a staple reading for me just like the Bible every morning. Reading it every time gets me invigorated and enables me to tackle every day challenges head on.
    Thanks for hosting this book giveaway, Tricia and OMF Lit!

    I love OMF sooo much. I used to go to their Mandaluyong office and read a lot of books when I was renting a place in Libertad. I would stay there for long hours browsing and checking inspirational books especially when theyre on sale..(thank u for their comfy couch,uplifting Christian music and sample books)oh, how I miss that… OMF was 1st publishing house that Ive searched when I heard about the International Book Fair. My favorite books are published by OMF like Spirit Controlled Temperament by Tim & Beverly Lahaye and which helps me understand why people act and behave the way they do, Gary Chapman’s Five Love Languanges where I learned to express love through time,acts of service, words of affirmation, gifts and touch. But most of all Im always excited to buy books about women, love and relationship, inner beauty and ministries. I learned how to approach relationships by applying Joshua Harris books.I also look forward for childrens books since Christmas is just around the corner and that would be a perfect present for my Sunday school kids,nieces and inaanak.

  7. Hi. I want to join too.

    I am really excited to buy Shame Lifter by Marilyn Hontz and a new Bible.
    Shame Lifter caught my attention. I have a lot of shameful events in my life that I want to expose in order to free myself but I don’t know how and I am scared. I think this book will give me insights on how to expose that shameful events without experiencing fear. I also think this book will make me realize that God is a shame lifter.

    How encouraging for me to see that Paola has decided to purchase my book, Shame Lifter. Thank you.
    Just to acknowledge shameful events in one’s life is a huge step. Sadly, shame does cause fear and secrecy. It is also often responsible for the negative thoughts (lies) you believe about yourself. Thankfully, there is hope and freedom to live without shame. And while most everyone of us have at one time or another been “shame receivers,” and/or “shame givers,” we truly can be “shame lifters” to those around us. Givers of grace – like the Lord is to us!
