Psst! Wishing You Could Get a Copy of My Book for Valentine’s Day??

Say Goodbye to Survival Mode

A number of you have written in to say you’d love to get a copy of my new book, Say Goodbye to Survival Mode, for Valentine’s Day.

I mentioned this in a team meeting last week and my husband, Jesse, and my manager, Brian, both exclaimed, “We’ve GOT to find a way to make it really easy for men to get this book for their wives/girlfriends!”

The wheels started turning in their heads and pretty soon, they came up with the snazzy idea to have a form that women could fill out to email their husbands/boyfriends to let them know that this would be the perfect gift for them for Valentine’s Day.

Brian was like, “Do you know how much easier it would make my life if I just got a simple email that told me exactly what my wife wanted? I’d LOVE that!”

Say Goodbye to Survival Mode

So gals, if you’ve been wanting to get a copy of Say Goodbye to Survival Mode and think it might be a great idea for a Valentine’s gift for you, here’s all you need to do:

1. Fill out the form below with your address and your husband’s/boyfriend’s email address.

2. Verify the email we send you to give us permission to send an email to your husband/boyfriend.

3. As soon as you click to verify the email in your inbox, your husband/boyfriend will get a friendly email from me letting him know that you’d love a copy of my book and telling him where he can purchase it. He’ll only get one email from me, one time. That’s it!

Hopefully, this will make it really easy for your husband/boyfriend to bless you with this book for Valentine’s Day! Jesse and Brian have promised me that the husbands and boyfriends are going to love this! 🙂

P.S. If you’d love a copy of the book, but there is no way that your family can afford it in your budget right now and your library is unable to order it for you, my husband and I would like to bless you with it as our Valentine’s Day gift to you. Just email with your mailing address and we’ll send you one.

    Include the information about taking a picture of the kids in the bookstore when he buys it to get a $10 Starbucks card. 🙂

  • Katie says:

    I just got mine today for an early Valentine’s day gift 🙂 So excited to read it!

  • Tara H says:

    My wonderful husband already bought mine but I think this is a great idea! 🙂 Very cute and very sweet!

    • I love it that your husband bought a copy for you!

      • Tara H says:

        Yeah…he was sweet. He knows I love your blog and all so when the book first came out to preorder, he ordered it and another book off my wishlist so we didn’t have to pay shipping. 😉
        I absolutely love that you’re giving copies to people that can’t afford it! I know God will bless you!!

  • faith says:

    Awesome idea.. just submitted 🙂 hopefully he gets the hint !

  • Patti says:

    I’ve got to get my hands on this book! I’m a single mommy so survival mode is something I know all too well.. And I’m starting school next month. I’ve prayed a lot on this decision… This book may be my guiding light during this season of life…

  • Alexandria Snider says:

    Just bought this yesterday, along with your budget book and can’t wait to get them! Say Goodbye to Survival Mode should be here on Thursday! Having 4 little boys, a husband that works out of town, and owning my own business, I constantly feel like I am in survival mode. I can’t wait to say goodbye to that feeling!!

  • Allyson Henley says:

    Wow Crystal! Very generous!

  • Jana M says:

    My library has one copy (that is checked out!!), but I’m hoping to get to borrow it soon!

  • annie says:

    I loved hearing how Jesse is on your business team. You two are an awesome team. Such a witness. 🙂

    • He’s been getting more involved recently as things have grown and we’ve been having SO much fun brainstorming and dreaming for what the future might hold for our family! We’ll see!

  • Madelyn says:

    I just ordered your book. I have been thinking about ordering it, but when I read that you were going to give the book to those that can’t afford it, I pulled the trigger immediately. That is just so nice, and so awesome. I can’t wait to read the book!

    • Aw, thank you so much! We’ve been so very blessed by getting to send out a number of books to those who can’t afford them… it’s been my favorite part of this launch by far. 🙂

      • Emilie says:

        I too thank you so much. I have been really trying to get my priorities in order and saving money is one of those priorities. I loved the book and found myself marking many many many ideas!

  • heather says:

    wow that is so generous and amazing!! bless you!!

  • Meg Light says:

    Your book is popular here in Central OH! I put in at the library a week ago and am number 27 on a wait list of 68. I’ll get to read it someday! We’re in our “basement apartment” days right now while hubby is going back to school and I homeschool our two oldest and chase the baby all over 🙂 I’ve been a reader from way back when you had Biblical Womanhood and I’m so very excited to see how well your book is taking off! Congrats 😀

  • Donna says:

    Hi Crystal!! I am so excited about your new book! It was quickly added to my wish list. I can’t wait to read it!
    My hubby is away for a month so I’m sure feeling like I’m in survival mode these days, plus adjusting to a new culture and missionary budget has really been a challenge. I’ve heard such great reviews, which doesn’t surprise me one bit. 🙂

  • joyce-ellen holmes says:

    Hey there, Im sorry, I wasn’t sure where else to post this… I preordered your book back in December on and I just received the book a week ago.. But I had an email that had a bunch of coupons/discounts with purchase of the book, and now that Im ready to use it, I cant find it. are you able to resend the email to me? Thanks in advance if you can help! 🙂

  • Becky says:

    What is the cost of the book? Thanks.

  • san says:

    My local library doesn’t carry your book. And neither does my local Sam’s Club. I tried Books A Million but they are charging $24 : (

  • Robyn says:

    Crystal – Your heart to encourage and equip women is coming through so loud and clear during this book launch! I’ve read your blog for many years, and have so much respect for the platform that you’ve worked hard to build. I love that you are giving this book away to women who truly need it, but can’t afford it. I pray God blesses you ten-fold for your generosity!

    I have it on hold at the library, but plan to order a few for girlfriends who could use a boost! (Which is SO CHEAPSKATE ME…I don’t want to spend money on it for myself, but my gift envelope is bursting, and this is a great way to use it to bless my friends.)

    I also registered for Hearts at Home this year after taking a few years off from the conference, and was so excited to see your name on the workshop list! Yay!!!

  • Sheila Fitzgerald says:

    What a great way to pass on Gods love by blessing woman with a copy if your book!
    Just started reading your blog and I love it! Waiting on our local library to get it. I just reserved a copy of your first book. 🙂

  • Mandy M. says:

    Thank you!!! I just got you book and can’t wait to read it!!! 🙂 Praying God’s blessings on your family!

  • JOYCE KACZOR says:

    I would love a copy of your book, but my library does not have it & I can’t afford it & I have tried to click on your link & it says could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly installed. If you can email me & I ill give you my address. Thanks so much, Joyce
