  1. Hi! What a fun contest. I thought I would try to make it even more challenging, so I took three titles and made them into a Haiku, using the classic 5-7-5 syllable format. Although I had to add an extra syllable to make it work 😉

    a friend of the earth
    a sound among the trees, oh!
    You were born for this.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  2. They told me, “you were born for this,” as I thumped the heads of several possesses preschoolers and said, “listen to the bible stories for once,” secretly wishing I could sail away on an adult-only cruise ship to Hawaii!

  3. Contest has ended and a winner has been selected!

    I actually had my boyfriend, his mom, and his brother judge the entries which made it more fair to all who entered since I removed the names and gave them a list of sentences instead….and now to announce the winner….

    The winner of the Create a Sentence Contest is….Shannon!! Congratulations Shannon on your winning sentence, “The Christian Zombie Killers Handbook said On This Day in Christian History The Promise Remains”. Please email me at with your address and the title of one of the books used in your sentence and I’ll send the book and a $25 Amazon card your way! Please respond within 2 days or another winner will be chosen.

    Thank you all who joined it! It was fun to read the sentences you created. 😀
