Fall Adventure + Reading Challenge Giveaway!

In case you missed the big announcement last week, I have joined the BookSparks Fall Adventure and Reading Challenge (#FRC2018) as the Celebrity Guest. I’m excited to share this campaign with you as I join BookSparks and several lifestyle influencers – and hopefully all of you – as we celebrate JOMO (the JOY of Missing Out) this Fall and Winter.  Forget FOMO (the fear of missing out that we all experience when tied to our social media). JOMO is all about putting your phone down and picking up a great book, or inviting your friends over for dinner, or getting outside and taking an adventure with your kids or your partner. Just being outside, enjoying the heavenly days we’re given and being present. As you know, that is what I’m all about.

For the rest of Fall and Winter, we’ll be reading great books, taking adventures and learning how to experience JOMO. I’ll also have several of the influencers as guests here on Those Heavenly Days sharing great content and ideas. But first: a giveaway!Continue Reading

I’ve asked Christie if she’d be willing to be a guest contributor and share a Valentine’s inspired cookie recipe with us all and she graciously obliged. So without further ado, here’s Christie!
