Today I’m Giving Away a Few of My Favorite Things!



Today is my favorite giveaway!

Today I am giving away my favorite things!!!

Let’s get started…


Preemptive Love – Pursuing Peace, One Heart at a Time by Jeremy Courtney

Oh my friends. I love this book so much, probably because I love the heart behind it so much. It’s a story (true) about a family that moves to Iraq (what American family moves to Iraq?!) and begins to love the people by helping families find a way to get their children heart surgeries. I may have fallen in love with Iraq during the reading of this book. Here are a few excerpts:

“On March 16, 1988, Saddam Hussein’s military dropped chemical weapons on the seventy thousand residents of Halabja. Five thousand people died instantly. Another twenty thousand people were seriously injured and directly exposed to the chemical weapons. kurds still see rates of birth defects and cancers that rival that of Hiroshima.”

“Of these thousands of children whose lives we would save, some would one day carry the scars on their chest to law school and on to the halls of parliament, where a new story of preemptive love would be told and the people of Iraq would turn over a new page with the people of Israel.”

“Love first. Ask questions later.”

Jeremy is a master story-teller and you will not be able to put the book down. Even if you win, you should buy this book to give to a friend. It’s that good.

The Crucified Life – How to Live Out a Deeper Christian Experience by A.W. Tozer

This book came at just the right time for me. I have been taking time to seek God’s face and this book just called to me. It is for every Christian who is tired of living the static Christian life and longs to go deeper.


“The crucified life is a life absolutely committed to following after Christ Jesus. To be more like Him. To think like Him. To act like Him. To love like Him. The whole essence of spiritual perfection has everything to do with Jesus Christ. Not with rules and regulations. Not with how we dress or what we do or do not do. We are not to look like each other; rather, we are to look like Christ.”


Just Love Coffee – African Skies

While in the mountains of beautiful North Carolina with my dear friend Logan and her family, I awoke to the glorious smell of coffee brewing in a percolator. Logan served me a cup, and I was all, “What coffee is this?! It is sooooo… good!”

I can tell these things now, how good coffee really is, because I don’t use creamer anymore. Just saying.

And friends, SO good. Man, I want some right now…

Fireside Candle

You all know that I love candles, and I’ve had a romance with Yankee for quite some time. That was until the nice folks at WoodWick contacted me awhile back and asked if I’d like to try some of their candles. HECK YES. So in the package was Fireside. And ya’ll, I’m hooked. I love the smell and the fact that it cackles and that when it burns I feel like I’m in a cabin with a fireplace and a dog.

Yes. That good.


Alpaca Socks

For real.

Alpaca, as in, the animal. Oh, these socks are SO comfy! My husband got me a pair for Christmas (because he knows that cozy socks are the way to my heart) and now I want a hundred more pairs. Luxury people, luxury. (@jessemhoover, make a note!)


Little Women
I could never, ever end a post of favorite things without including the 1994 version of Little Women. I adore this movie and make my children watch it with me several times during the winter. SEVERAL. It’s one of those cozy movies, kind of like alpaca socks.
 Well, there you have it. My favorite things.

This is the best giveaway because when you get it, you can cozy up in your alpaca socks, light the Fireside candle (and listen to it cackle), have warm cup of coffee (hey, that sounds familiar) and read a good book! And then when you’re done with your book, you can watch Little Women! Score!

Oh, and by the way, everything listed I am purchasing for you. No company or person has asked or even knows I’m doing this giveaway. These genuinely are just a few of my favorite things. Just thought you should know. 🙂

Alright ya’ll, that’s it for today! Just fill out the form below to enter to win my favorite things! One winner, super-fun delivery day when it arrives on your doorstep!

(I also think having my house professionally cleaned has potential to be a favorite thing but that’s never happened so it’s just theoretical and I guess technically not a thing. It’s more of a verb.)

  • Sarah Beth W.

Some other things I love…reading with my kids snuggled next to me, Jane Eyre, Bolthouse Farms iced coffee, chocolate, my husband :), thinking about how great and mighty my God is while looking at the beauty and majesty of the changing colors of autumn, I Love this time of year. 🙂

    One of my favorite things is playing a board game with the family, hanging out laughing together. I put a pan of brownies or bar cookies in the oven, we play, then we eat the treat.

  • Melissa

    I like your favorite things 🙂

  • AdamTracey Ritchie

    I love your favorite things!

  • Amber @JoyDare

    My favorite thing is my coffee cup 🙂 it says start each day with a grateful heart… Oh, and the coffee that goes in it is pretty good too 😉

  • Jen

    Coffee. And not just the “quick-grab-a-cup-of-coffee-so-I-can-get-my-work-done-& proceed-to-drinking-it-all-day” coffee. Although, I do appreciate that kind of coffee too. I’m talking about the coffee when you wake up in the morning or walk into a room with perhaps no, or very little agenda for the day and your nose devours the aromas swirling in the air; your face instantly lights up with the thought of a good cup of coffee. Your glands slightly salivate at the thought of that first wondrous sip, and all is right with the world. 🙂 Oh yeah. THAT kind of coffee.

  • Nia

    Favorite thing? Mint chip ice cream. =)

  • Queenie Yau

    My favorite thing…..chocolate!

  • Katelyn

    My favorite thing is a good book and a cozy blanket on a rainy day! 🙂

  • Lori

    Thank you for your godly, genuine example!!! Your generosity is such a blessing!!!!!!!

  • Melissa Trotter

    Favorites are so hard to pick…love good books. And after living for several years without one, my new dishwasher is one of my favorite things! But my overall “favorites” are not things. Spending time with my husband and our daughters is priceless.


    I can’t pick a favorite thing?! So I will pick one I really love. Chocolate. I am not a Coffee drinker, so I do Hot Chocolate with creamer and its so rich. Plus peppermint sometimes. Mmmmmm.

  • Amy
