Happy December! Woot!! The Christmas countdowns have started, the Thanksgiving leftovers are being eaten, and now it’s time for a giveaway, don’t you think?
I’m excited to join with 8 other fabulous ladies from around the interwebs to offer an insanely amazing “Favorite Things” giveaway! These ladies are fellow bloggers who have a heart for connecting on a deeper level. They’re all about relationship, and I’m so grateful to know all of them. Sometimes the internet gives you the gift of friendship, and I’m just tickled to share these gals with you today. When Kristin first invited me to join a Mastermind group (like-minded bloggers in a small online group), I thought it would be fun to chat blogging business with other women. But these ladies have become prayer warriors, encouragers, and sisters.
Here are our top 4 tips to start a Mastermind Group (in case you’re looking for one and wondering where to begin):
- Don’t be afraid to ask some bloggers that you admire if they are interested in joining you in a mastermind group.
- Keep it small and encourage and learn from one another.
- Listen to this podcast with Kat Lee & Trina Holden: How to Start & Run a Mastermind Group
- Read this post by Amy Lynn Andrews: Why You Should be in a Mastermind Group

On to the giveaway!
Work of Worth Eternal Bead Scarf
Handmade in India, these infinity scarves come in 3 different fun colors, shades vary. Each scarf is made from recycled Indian sari, so it is completely unique! The scarves have four rows of knotted fabric for some added flair.
These 8.5 x 11 handlettered prints by my friend Aliza Latta are sure to become a new favorite in your home. Beautifully crafted, thoughtfully designed, and just the right little bit of encouragement to hang on your wall or gift to a friend!
Noonday Collection Cow Horn Hoops
Carved from the tremendous cow horns found in Uganda. Each earring is hand cut from a different part of the horn (all ethically sourced), making every pair truly unique.
This e-book by Anna Rendell is for the woman who doesn’t need another person telling her to simplify, to slow down, to enjoy the season. Your to-do list matters and that’s ok, and so is taking a moment of peacefulness, just for you. These devotions are guilt-free, inspiring, and able to be read in 10 minutes or less. Each day of this devotional includes a short Scripture or quote, a quick devotion for your heart, a brief prayer, a question to ponder, and something for your hands (a timesaving tip, recipe, tradition idea, etc.) Also included are six ‘bonus moments’ – short prayers for different situations & days.
Be Grateful Canvas Print by DaySpring
