    Even though we use some nutritional ingredients (we grind our wheat ( organic wheat, spelt, and rye) in our recipes and are not completely gluten free, I do notice less bloating when I don’t use wheat products whether their the good stuff and use more gluten free. My oldest son seemed to do better cognitively when all gluten free (he’s 20 and sometimes eats junk ). So I do know their is something to be gained from going gluten free. THanks

  2. anne windholtz says:

    There is no way as a single mom, raising kids, going back to college full time and working I can enter your kindle fire contest a lot of times so please give us a fair chance to get our name in the pot. lol! Thanks!

  3. carriescreativekitchen says:

    Where is the question & when does it start?

  4. Wow, there is so much we would use a Kindle for. I would get a copy of the Bible on it first off. Then I would store some of the books we’ve been wanting to read. Next I would put my crochet patterns on it so I would have them with me when I go out.

  5. I would use it to read on the go.

  6. Great contest, Luke! Hoping to add a Kindle Fire to our family of 4.

  7. Michelle O'Malley says:

    I would use it as 1 of our trio’s birthday present. Then we would only have to get 2 more :) We want to get them on ABC Mouse :) Thanks for the oppurtunity

  8. Michelle Benskin says:

    I have tried it myself and seen only a slight improvement – I think kids with ADD/ADHD or social anxiety problems may benefit from things I’ve read about what sets them off sometimes (my 21 year old daughter suffers from both and is graduating from college to be a teacher in 2014!). Good luck with the research and sorry I can’t help you more other than just a slight improvement of feeling more healthy.

  9. We don’t have a tablet and this is a great opportunity for my family to educate on the ‘go’ :)

  10. Reading, word games, and recipes!

  11. Reading in the car!

  12. My son would benefit from this for school.

  13. carriescreativekitchen says:

    Can’t find the question to answer, but if it’s how would we use it, here’s my answers:
    my trucker hubby would live a way to read while waiting for loads,
    My kidz would love to use it for on the go school reading,
    I have had my eye on the Kindle Fire & can’t wait to see or try one. Sounds handy for Sunday School studying & homeschooling!!!

  15. We would use it for books for the kids and I.

  16. Crystie Welte says:

    Soon, we will be traveling the US with our children, to minister and “road school.” Each one of them will need a Kindle as carrying a lot of books will not be an option.

  17. Love contest…and the Fire. Can’t wait.

  18. I had to look up what a Kindle Fire does before I could write what I would use it for. ha. I know you could read books on it, but that was all I knew.

    I am a stay at home Mom, so our financial resources are limited. God has blessed us by meeting our needs. I wouldn’t buy a Kindle because I feel like it’s not a necessity, but it sure would be nice to win one. :) I presently share a computer with my son. I love that that the Kindle is portable. I have thousands of free ebooks on Amazon cloud. I would use it to read those books and look at recipes without having to print them. I would love to read the Bible on the kindle where I can read it with big print. :)

    Thanks for offering this giveaway. Someone will be very blessed to receive it. God bless.

  19. We would use it for reading and schooling on the road as we look to traveling more this year.

  21. I love books so I would use it simply to read and store books!

  26. Would sure help for homeschooling!!

  28. I’d use it to read books & watch shows while cooking :)

  29. I would use it to access all the cookbooks I’ve downloaded but can’t read on my basic Kindle. I am also looking for something to read books (which will show the pictures) to the grandkids since we are moving near them! We’ve been in Guatemala for almost 5 years and are just moving back so I can’t wait to snuggle them and read to them! πŸ˜€

  30. Would use to read books in bed and take recipes into the kitchen. Right now I am connected to my PC via a free Kindle app…hard to carry that around…lol

  31. I have only just begun the great wheat/gluten exodus. I’ve gone a few weeks without it and then fell off the wagon and definitely noticed a difference with some inflammatory issues. I’d call me, tiptoeing in. Thanks for the opportunity on the Kindle. :)

  41. Tonya Henschen says:

    I have just started going gluten and wheat free myself. It has been hard for me to do this but I am trying as I am a Diabetic and trying to get myself healthier and I am tired of being sick all the time. We could use this prize.

  54. Kindle Fire giveaway–count me in! As for gluten free, not completely in our house. Nonetheless, I can testify that our move toward unprocessed foods has resulted in less digestive issues.

  56. Barbara Malone

  58. We would use it in our homeschooling lessons for our three little boys! TY so much for this contest.

  59. Amanda Sydnor says:

    It would be for my boys, particularly my 4-yr-old. Currently, they use my kindle, which is littered with teaching apps, educational games, books for both them and me, diy books, etc. I recently discovered some free educational apps that are great for keeping my boys busy while I’m getting the car worked on or otherwise out without much for them to do. It’s definitely a teaching tool. He loves tracing the letters and putting puzzles together. It definitely came in handy during a long wait at the bank!

  60. Hi Luke & Trisha, I just entered this great giveaway you all are hosting, just stopping by to say thanks for the opportunity.

  61. I love your website and I’m just stopping by today to say thanks for the chance to win!

  62. WOW that is a really wonderful thing you guys are doing. It would be such a blessing to win one for my 3 1/2 year old. I can not afford daycare and I just got back in college, but online college, so i hate to see my boy bored and watching too much tv to see him entertained, it kills me so a tablet and some educational apps would be amazing. Thanks for this amazing chance.

  63. I would use it to replace my book collection. We are trying to downsize our clutter, and a digital library would certainly free up some space. Also, I have to little guys, so it would be great for educational apps for them.

  64. Lisa Lopacinski says:

    My son has a speech delay called Apraxia. There are lots of books and apps that we could use on the Kindle to help him.

  65. We would use the Kindle Fire to continue enriching activities/reading during the many hours each week we spend sitting in waiting rooms. πŸ˜‰

  66. I would love to incorporate a Kindle Fire in our homeschooling. : )

  67. Jennifer Napier says:

    I use my Kindle touch for reading for myself and for some of our homeschooling needs. I would love to have a Kindle fire to add to my daughter’s homeschool resources!

  68. Would use it as a motivator for kid of the day to play games, read their literature work, bible time, apps for the day.

  69. I would use it for homeschool for my kids – especially my son, who is an avid reader. :)

  70. We homeschool and just started a completely online school program. With 4 kids doing regular school and 2 preschoolers, we could use an extra device for them to work on. So, if won the Kindle Fire it would definitely be put to good use.

  71. Heather Young says:

    We’d use it a lot for homeschooling! Free ebooks, school apps, etc.

  72. We have not given up wheat in our family yet, as currently we do not have health issues. However, as an RN, I do see the benefits of Gluten and Wheat Free diets have made on many families and individuals who have identified problems in digestion/mood related to these foods.
    Thank you for this give away!

  78. Christine T. says:

    My husband just lost his job. This would be a great help for us – I could download free homeschool things for my kids & I’d use it for helping my husband searching for a job online. possibilities are endless actually!

    I would love a Kindle!

  80. I would use it to read and for homeschooling apps.

  82. Teresa Locklear says:

  84. Angela Hall says:

    I would use our Kindle for reading myself while nursing our youngest, but also for homeschooling.

  85. Amanda Clay says:

    We have thought about removing wheat from the family diet to find out the healthy benefits but were overwhelmed by all of the instructions and off-limits food when you’re first starting out. I’m sure it’s easier once you’re already in a rhythm but it it was daunting and during a busy time in our lives.

I have over 500 books in my kindle account, that I’ve bought through my computer (many of them kids books, that we have to look at on my computer). We would also use it for games for the kids when they have done their homeschool work and their chores. Thanks for putting these up as a prize!

  93. Heather scollon says:

    I would use the kindle fire for ebooks. Also I homeschool so I would allow my children to use it for educational purposes.

  94. Donna Thomas says:

    We would use the kindle fire in our home school.The kids entered the reading contest at the library this summer in hopes of winning one, but we had a problem and couldn’t turn in our reading logs. Had to do so in person. This would really help my 3 kiddos!! Thanks!!

  95. We haven’t tried a gluten or wheat-free diet. I know a few who have, but our family is very healthy eating the way we have for years: growing our own food AMAP and making almost everything from scratch (including whole wheat bread).

  96. Yes, I would love to incorporate the kindle into our homeschool classroom – kids’ independent reading, Mom’s reading aloud and so may other ways to explore! Thank you for the chance to win!

    Linda Finn

    Kindle Fire sounds awesome!

  105. We would study the Bible on it. Watch Christian based movies, and read books.

  106. How would I use the kindle fire? Honestly, since I’ve never had one I am not quite sure. I can imagine I would use the kindle fire as and aid for some therapies for my special needs daughter (touch screens have some great programs for getting her to use her fingers better), and as an aid for schoolwork, especially when we’re on the go for doctor appointments and such. I have kindle on my computer only, and I bet this would help me read some of the books I downloaded that I don’t get too because I am tired of sitting at a desk :)

  107. Tammy Drost says:

    I would like to use it while waiting for the kids at their various activities and let them use it as an incentive to read more!

  115. My Son Loves To Read, So I Would Have It With Us So He Can Read At Anytime. Thank you.

  116. I’ve been eating a lot less wheat lately, but it hasn’t really been intentional, and I don’t know that any health benefits I’ve noticed would be related to that. I am currently pregnant and my stomach has been veeeerrrry picky. I can basically eat fruits and vegetables, beans, and some meats. But some of the cereals that are okay are wheat-based and others aren’t. And I’ve actually found that my stomach doesn’t like gluten-free cereals much (even before I got pregnant). So I would say that my stomach is not really suited to a gluten-free diet.

  117. Yesterday’s Classics. It’s the best ebook library I’ve seen and how great would it be to have it accessible to more than one child at a time!

  118. I would use it for homeschooling at the __________. Fill in the blank. We would also love to use it for cookbooks and bible reading.

  119. I would love to keep my books on it.

  122. We are a homeschool book lovin family! I know this would be used a lot by my 8yr. old for reading. She loves to read not just for school but just for fun!

  123. We are wheat-free (gluten-free) and it has helped us a LOT. I have Hashimoto’s and my son has Celiac symptoms, so it was a must-do for us.

  124. If we were to win a Kindle Fire, I might be able to keep my monster reader satiated with books! I would foresee it getting a great workout in our homeschool of three students!

  125. My 10 yr old would use it to continue her love of reading!

  126. I would love to have a Kindle Fire for my middle girl to use in her schooling!!

  127. For everything! I agree with others on all of the entry “rigamarole”! “One time and your done” really is more fair! Esp. for those of us who don’t do all the social media! Oh well, thanks anyway!

  128. Tiffany Knarr says:

    We would use it for school & reading. We LOVE books around here!!!

  129. I would use a Kindle Fire mostly for my boys. I love that they have that Kindle Freetime I think its called…for something like $3 a month-great childrens books, games, and videos in color! We would so enjoy this.

  130. Christina Ardelean says:

    This would be great to have for homeschool and travel. I have 3 wonderful daughters who would get great use out of this.

  131. We use read-aloud time to cover missions, historic figures and other topics. We really love the YWAM series of Christian Heroes Then and Now and American Heroes Then and Now, and these are now available for Kindle. I’d also enjoy being able to use educational apps with the kids.

  132. My daughter would love this! She loves reading and it would be wonderful for her homeschool.

  133. I would use to encourage my oldest to read more, as well as an easy travel library for when we are on the go. Probably also as an incentive for getting other work done so the kids can read on the cool technology.

  134. since we are homeschooling our 4 children we would use our kindle for homeschooling purposes. I know it would get my two kindergarteners more interested in reading, my older boys would love it for games and learning purposes as well.

  135. I would use it for bible study, for movies on the go for kids.

  136. I would love for my children to be able to read and keep as many books as the like! I was hoping to get one of these for my family for Christmas but they are so expensive! Thank you for the opportunity!

  137. Would definitely use it for homeschool!

  138. Rachel Traver says:

    Would use it for reading books and educational apps for the kiddos. Thanks!

  139. Reading!

  140. Since we live so far from a library I would use it for an ereader and there are so many educational apps to supplement/reinforce what the children are learning. We would love to have one!

  141. I would use it for reading and for my son as a learning tool.

  142. I would use it to read the Bible and for the kiddos to read a lot of their school books.

  144. I entered the giveaway on one of the other blogs. Just leaving a comment to let you know I dropped by.

  147. Michele Roy says:

    I would use a Kindle with the kids for any homeschool on the go activities, and with the you version app for church services on Sunday. :)

  148. I would use a Kindle for homeschooling. There are some free books on line that I would love to read to my kids, but don’t like reading them from the computer and don’t get around to printing them out. We love books in our home, but it would be nice to take advantage of some of the Kindle books that are around.

  149. Angela Sustala says:

    I would use it for books and for homeschooling!

  150. We have given up wheat for the most part for the whole family, but definitely for three of my children and myself (because I’m nursing a baby who needs to avoid it). We definitely see an improvement in the health of our children. For those who have to avoid it, we have less behavior issues and less bed wetting.

    If I was blessed enough to win a Kindle Fire, I would use it most as an e-reader. We use the Robinson Curriculum which is a lot of books that are supposed to be printed out (or purchased if you are lucky enough to find them!) I have about 3/4 of the books already, but having difficulty finding the last 1/4 and would love to have them on an e-reader instead of printing them out.

  151. There are lots of ways I see a Kindle Fire being used in our home. First, the design of Kindle would be used, to read books!! I’d love to be able to let my children read books on the Kindle and my daughter has been asking for one to read the “Sparks books like what Granny has”.
    We’d also use it to supplement the homeschooling that goes on and keep little brother occupied so we can focus on math! :)

  152. Susannah King says:

    Stopping by to check out your blog :) I entered the giveaway from a different site.

  153. New fan from the blog hop giveaway! :) I would use the Kindle Fire with my homeschool kiddos. So many great resources available now to use with the Kindle! (especially since I have an recent injury it would save me lots of moving around πŸ˜‰ )

  154. school and cookbooks!

  155. I would use my Kindle in the kitchen while I cook. I would build a holder or stand somewhere convenient, and could have my recipes right there without having to print-out or make room for my laptop.

  156. What a great give away! This would make an awesome present for my kids at Christmas. My oldest loves to read & my youngest is really struggling. I think something with a bigger screen might help
