#TheBestYes: Replay and Giveaways

Let's recapture US

Do you ever feel like those you care about most tend
to get “less” 
of you instead of the “best” of you?

I often do. Yet, I long with all my heart to put my head on my pillow each night with a smile on my face, knowing I lived and loved that day with no regrets.

Sounds impossible doesn’t it? Living with no regrets…

  • No regrets about the time I spent with my family or the time I spent at work.
  • No regrets about the commitments I said “yes” to or the ones I “passed” on.
  • No regrets about the way I did or didn’t spend my soul seeking and serving God.

But how? How can we give more of our “best” than our “less” to those we love? How can we recapture the {us} in the midst of our rush? I’m finally learning how.

Not perfectly. Not even consistently. But I’m learning… Slowly learning.

Page by page. Chapter by chapter. Decision by decision as I read my new all-time favorite book, written by one of my closest friends: The Best Yes by Lysa TerKeurst And, did you know Lysa invited us to her house to hang out and talk about all of this….and more during #TheBestYes Dinner webcast. You, me and a few friends from Proverbs 31 Ministries! I hope you’ll join us.

  • Q1. How many of us were at Lysa’s house for dinner, and how many children did we {collectively} leave at home to be together?
  • Q2. I shared on the webcast how Jesus didn’t see interruptions as interruptions, but instead He saw them as ________________.  {Fill in the blank}
  • Q3. Lysa shared the three D’s that help her realize  her “people-pleasing” tendency is kicking in when she _________ saying yes, but feels powerless to say no. What are the 3 Ds? Hint: The first D fills in the blank and completes Lysa’s statement.
  • Q4. What is one thing we hope you’ll do after watching the webcast?

I can’t wait to read your responses! I’ll be back with more giveaways on Friday and next week to announce these 5 book winners too. 

We’re Celebrating 5 Years of (in)Courage:ment {& giveaways galore}

Five years. Five years and thousands of women across the globe gathering at (in)courage each new day with their words.


Five years ago, this place was created on the internet for women to gather.

A place that has become a shelter from the storm for so many. A heart-space filled with words that offer sanctuary in the midst of raging headlines, changing seasons and aching wounds of the world.

And this Spring my hand and my heart joined with theirs – becoming family – in this gathering of women who create a cathedral of words and hide in the shelter of His Word {together} at (in)courage! Oh how I love being part of this place where “we take off our shoes and come with our bare, dirty feet to sit and kneel and circle around one another… a place where we see glory in all our ordinary.”

A place where Jesus makes us sisters, every one… and you, you are one of us, too.

This week we are celebrating our 5 year (in)Courage birthday with thanksgiving & lot of giving of pretty, awesome, fun, encouraging gifts galore! Hop over to the party with me and ENTER TO WIN!
