One of the dreams we have at GIGW is to share the books that we have gleaned from and learned from with as many girls we can.

One way we do this is to have a library of books for friends to borrow from.  At the conference, we set out the books for girls to look at.  To borrow a book simply add your name to the list.  The top person on the list gets to go home with the book that day.  When each person is finished with the book, they simply pass it to the next person on the list. Next conference whoever has the book, brings it back and we start over.

 

***Do you see a book on the list you want to borrow??***

***Email me at girlsingodsword@gmail.com to see if it’s available or to add your name to the borrowing list***

A second way of sharing our love for these books is to let you see them and skim thru them.  If it looks like a book you’d like to buy; great, I’m sure you will love it.  We will keep a list here of the books and a link to where you can buy it.  The link is an affiliate link; which simply means when you click on it and purchase something GIGW gets a small percentage, which enables us to buy more books to stock our library. (This adds no cost to you.)
