The #9 Giveaway



Topher's advice about birthing (originally posted here), especially #9 in his list of things not to do during the birthing process, seems to have struck a chord. No, not that cord. So, readers, you have one week to send us your best (worst) mismatched-outfit-messy-haired-kid(s) hospital picture. We will choose the top three and put them up for a reader vote. The man voted most negligent will receive the very first MMM giveaway. We want to see our inbox flooded with pictures, so pass the word via Facebook, Twitter, email and/or word of mouth (not sure if this last method is used anymore, but we thought it worth the mention).

Our first giveaway is a reminder of the days when the church contracted trusted intellectuals to pull together Church materials. Christ's Ideals for Living, commissioned by President David O. McKay and written by Obert C. (O.C.) Tanner, was used in 1955 during sunday school classes. The book contains forty-five chapters, each describing a virtue (e.g. resolution, balance, friendship, tolerance, sacrifice), with each virtue magnified through four lenses: Christ's life, the scriptures, literature and the words of modern prophets. The book can essentially be summarized as follows: what the gospel is for. This is a book everyone should own...including and especially negligent men.

Giveaway Guidelines:

• Man-dad voted in photo contest to be the most negligent wins.
• Winner will be announced Wednesday, April 27th.
• Winner needs to respond via email by May 1st to claim the book.
• Book will be mailed to the winner at our cost.
