First & foremost, I think it’s about time to announce the winner of a SIGNED copy of Natalie Lloyd’s fabulous book, Paperdoll. Thank you so much for the emails, comments, and new twitter followers! Your feedback was absolutely incredible and, I know, very dear to Natalie’s heart. The winner was selected randomly and I am pleased to announce that CHLOE is receiving Paperdoll this Christmas! Stoked for you, girl! Chloe, email me at [email protected] your address & we’ll get the book on it’s way to you! Congrats!!

As it is getting closer & closer to Christmas, it’s that time to start gift shopping. This year, I don’t want to give another gift that will simply sit on a shelf. I want to give a gift of true hope. At Church of Hope, we recently had the privilege of going on an incredible journey with Michael Belk. Michael shared his story with us and his passion for exploring the modern day relevance of Jesus’ centuries-old message. Journeys with the Messiah is a phenomenal way to share the Gospel. People that God has placed in your life may never set foot in a church, but can experience the HOPE of Christ through you. By sharing Journeys with the Messiah, you may connect with a family member in a way that no one else can. Take a look at the Journeys website at to see all of the amazing resources available. Michael’s photography would make an amazing gift this Christmas. Rather than buying a gift that will simply sit on a shelf, why not give a gift of true HOPE this Christmas–a gift of how Jesus centuries-old message relates to us still today.

One song that seems like it’s on virtual repeat in my car is Mariah Carey’s version of “All I Want for Christmas is You!” Such a fun song and this was a fun performance at Disney in 2004!
