HOOKED ON HOLIDAY MOVIES
The Couch Podcast #98: A California Christmas: City in Lights & ‘Tis the Season to be Merry with NJ Rongner
Well, it was bound to happen eventually. Friends don’t have to agree on everything, right? Right. And this week, despite all the things we agree on wholeheartedly, my good friend NJ Rongner and I have very different opinions about a holiday movie. And you know what? It’s okay! Totally okay. NJ loves coffee, Jesus and Gilmore Girls. And for some reason, which she tries to explain to us today, she loves the California Christmas movies on Netflix.
This week I’m hanging out on the couch with my friend (and friend of the show) Latasha Ferguson. She’s a speaker, writer, ministry leader, and host of the Overcome to Become podcast. She’s a teacher, a wife, and a mom who loves empowering women and, lucky for us, watching movies. We are talking about a bunch (although not all) of the holiday movies we watched last weekend and whether or not we liked them. Spoiler alert: we did.
Laura Tremaine joins me this week to share her experience watching her very first Lifetime holiday movie, and it’s both exactly what we expected and a whole lot of fun! Laura is the author of Share Your Stuff, I’ll Go First, the creator of the #onedayHH Instagram campaign, and the host of the 10 Things to Tell You podcast. She’s also a complete newcomer to the world of holiday movies. Though she’s married to an actual movie director, Laura admitted to me last fall (when I was a guest on her podcast) that she’s never watched a made-for-TV holiday movie. So this year, I asked if she’d be willing to give one a try—and she said yes! In the language of TikTok and good students everywhere, Laura understood this assignment.

Fake Snow & Real Faith
by Anna Rendell & Mary Carver
Love holiday movies? Love Jesus? This is the devotional for you! Mary and Anna take ten topics commonly found in holiday movies (think snowball fights, meddling angels, and holiday baking) and pair them up with a personal story and lesson from Scripture. This devotional is a light and inspiring read, perfect for a quick break from the hustle and bustle of an over-full holiday season. Here’s to fake snow and real faith!
