Update: The winner of Embrace the Crazy is Candace!

Welcome to the first giveaway of Autism Awareness Month! Today’s giveaway is an eBook by Laurie Wallin, who quickly agreed to give away a copy to my readers when I told her about the autism awareness focus on my blog this month.

Laurie Wallin is the parent of children with special needs. I first “met” her on Twitter, where she interacts as @mylivingpower. But it wasn’t until she started using the hashtag #embracethecrazy that I got to know her. She and another friend of mine shared the fun and foibles of raising children with special needs on Twitter, which eventually led to emails and phone calls and to me writing regular guest posts for her site: Living Power Life Coaching.

Laurie has a passion for helping others face the challenges of life with joy, and she did just that when she took our silly hashtag from Twitter and wrote an eBook titled Embrace the Crazy: Practical Ideas for When Life Seems Impossible. It is full of wisdom that is easy to implement and is fun to read. If you’re taking care of a child with autism, you may not have a lot of reading time, but that’s okay. Embrace the Crazy is a short book that can easily be read in a few minutes here or there.

Normally, you have to subscribe to Laurie’s website to receive a copy of the eBook (that’s how I got mine), but, in support of Autism Awareness Month, Laurie has agreed to give away a digital copy of Embrace the Crazy to one of you!

This giveaway is open to adults age 18 or older. It will end at 9:00 pm CDT on April 30, 2013. It is not administered or endorsed by Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or any other social media site. The winner will be contacted by email within 48 hours of the end of the giveaway and will have 48 hours to reply with a full name and valid email address. I will pass your information on to Laurie, and she will email you the copy of Embrace the Crazy. Use the Giveaway Tools widget below to enter.

    I would love to read this book. Sounds good. We had our whole house lit up blue lat night. How about you?

    • We didn’t light up blue last night. We’re all sick. I was going to wear blue yesterday, but that didn’t work out either. It’s was a pajama day. I guess I’m trying to light the internet up blue this month. :)

    After dealing with an Autistic/ADHD/OCD son for 10 years, I DO embrace the crazy on a daily basis. I would enjoy reading this book as I try to devour anything and everything on the subject. :)

  5. Amy Young says:

    I would love to get this book for my 13 year old daughter. She has a heart for autistic children and is wanting to become an occupational therapist who specializes in this amazing world. I would also enjoy reading it as well as I feel it is important to be able to relate to anyone you might come in contact with.

    There’s a reason that my twitter handle was once “used to be sane.” I need practical ideas for making our lives not so crazy.

  7. Shea says:

    I would love to the read the book as I am reading and researching all things for my son so that I can be educated at all his therapy appointments and all the testing we are still going through to get a clear diagnosis.
