Happy Monday, everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was full; how about yours? I know it’s the nature of the season, but I’m hopeful that your weekend included at least one moment of peace, at least one chunk of time for rest or reflection, at least one nap taken or chapter read or mug sipped or movie watched.

Weekends aren’t the only thing that’s full for me right now. My calendar and my blog are full, too. Which means you’ll see a few more posts than normal around here. Lots of those posts will be about Choose Joy, while a few of them will be sponsored posts. But I promise not to slack on the encouragement and helpful information, and – BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE – awesome giveaways!

Today’s post fits two of those categories. It’s a Choose Joy giveaway!

Choose Joy giveaway

Though many of you are familiar with Sara, my co-author and friend who passed away four years ago, I realize that just as many of you never met her, never read her blog, and never even heard of her before I started going on and on about our book.

So why would you want to read a book that’s largely about her life?

Well, obviously because IT’S AWESOME. But in case my completely biased opinion isn’t compelling enough, I thought I’d also help you get to know Sara a bit better. That’s why I’m giving away a basket of Sara’s favorites.

One reader will be the winner of the following:

Harry Potter movies (all 8 of ’em!)
6 months of Netflix (to watch Friday Night Lights and Alias, of course)
One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp
The Fringe Hours by Jessica Turner
You’re Going to Be Okay by Holley Gerth
The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Dinnertime by Ree Drummond
Faith in Color (an adult coloring book) and colored pencils
JOY earrings by Lisa Leonard
$10 SONIC gift card
$10 iTunes gift card
$10 Hobby Lobby gift card

What? WOW! You guys?! This is HUGE!! More than a $250 value! And CLEARLY the person who loves those things (like Sara, *cough, cough*) is pretty awesome. Right?!

All right, fine, I’ll stop gushing about my own giveaway and get on to the part where I tell you how you can enter. Easy! Leave a comment, tweet a message, or send us proof that you’ve already ordered the book. (Or all of the above…!)

The giveaway will close at midnight on Sunday, December 13. Winners must live in the U.S.

Which one of your favorite things is bringing you joy right now?

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?!)
