One of the movie theaters that Mark and I go to occasionally includes a slide about what to do in case of a fire in its before-the-previews commercials. The instructions, written in a lovely script, scroll up over the screen as a Very Serious Man reads them aloud.

And every single time, I can’t help giggling. The whole thing reminds me so much of SNL’s Jack Handey segments from the 90s. I’m just convinced the next time we see a movie, someone is going to introduce the emergency instructions with, “And now . . . deep thoughts from AMC.”

That’s also how I think about my (in)courage posts. I love being a part of the (in)courage team for so many reasons, but one of the most important is that it allows me the opportunity to write through my feelings or something God has been teaching me every single month.

As I look back on the posts I wrote for (in)courage this year, I really love them all. Not because they’re so well-written or clever or moving! But because they really do represent ME. One of my goals for 2012 is to write more like this – more than once a month!

In case you missed them, here are my 2011 posts at (in)courage:

Do you write differently in different environments? Do you have any writing goals for 2012?

What should you watch next?


Every month, we are bombarded with new TV series and movies—and it can be overwhelming to figure out what to watch! (I know, I know, what a problem to have!) I'm here to help. My monthly Watch Guides list out all the returning series, new series, and new movies, along with premiere dates and where to watch them. Plus, I tell you my personal picks for the month to help you narrow it all down.

Drop your name and email here, and I'll send you this month's Watch Guide right away!

(Signing up gives me permission to email you. But I will never, ever send you spam or junk. Who has time for that?!)
