– Book Giveaway

 In This House We Will Giggle

3. For All of You

Here’s a treat for all! Once you dig into the book, you’ll see that 12 virtues will match up nicely with the calendar year. A calendar would be so helpful, right? Here you go!  You certainly don’t have to do the virtues according to this schedule. Whatever works best for your family. I am starting in January 2015 with JOY to freshen up our fam on what I wrote in the book. We can always use a month to retrain our hearts on any virtue. We are in this together!



What’s Happening This Week:


Share the video with friends!

Here’s Casey’s version of the video that has the lyrics for you. You can buy the song “In This House” on iTunes. So fun to work together with a friend on a song/message that means so much! He’s playing at the Atlanta signing on October 23!



Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. for your support.

All to HIM! Praising Jesus today for all He has done!


UPDATE: November 3 – we have winners!

  6. Don’t include me in the giveaway…I’ve got 20 books coming my way…but just couldn’t not comment on a day as big as this. Love how even on such a big day for you, you are celebrating so many others. Praying now for all who will read the book…may many look back years from now and say, “Our family changed for the better after reading In This House We Will Giggle!” Hugs and love, friend. You have represented your Heavenly Father so well during this process, and I know that will continue. Cheering you on from Alabama!

  7. Congratulations Courtney!!! We are so proud of you. Way to go girl! We expect there to be a lot more giggling going on in homes across America because of you. What an awesome gift to give any family.

  8. SO excited for you! I can’t wait to start reading! Thanks for being an encouragement and inspiration to so many of us! God is so good!

  9. Congratulations! Just heard about this book and very excited! It is a current topic of conversation in our home. I fall into the structured and controlling, “gotta give them God” teaching moments and I think they are one of those children described as counting time until they get to leave the house. Would love a fresh perspective. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  10. This is in my Amazon cart, but would love to win a copy! We are pretty goofy in my house already, and my girls are beginning to get my corny jokes. My six year old is sophisticated enough to know some of them are just NOT very noteworthy. “Oh, MOM!” is stated with a bored tone of subtle distaste.
    What a great gift for a new mom~~~

  11. Congrats!! You touched our mops group and I can’t wait to read this book! Would love to win a copy to bless a friend!

  12. Can’t wait to read and to print /use the virtue cards. We love the ABC Scripture cards and I’ve tried to spread the word that they’ll be at Lifeway in November! Congratulations on the book!

  13. So proud of you Courtney. Love that your heart is on fire for the Lord and families! Your book will be an inspiration to all. God bless you and your precious family!!

  14. Oh, oh, pick me, pick me. I read the description of this book on Amazon but I have yet to purchase it. So excited to read and implement with my family 🙂

  15. This book looks great! It came highly recommended by a friend, so I’m excited to check it out! Would love a free copy!

  16. This book sounds like such a great resource and I would love to win a copy! Thanks for the chance to win and for the free virtue cards 🙂

  17. I LOVE the ideas and values this book supports. I had not been to your blog until today or heard of your book. (If honesty is a virtue). I found your blog via Karen Ehman’s giveaway of your new book. I read your story and decided to visit your blog. To my amusement, I have to giggle! I have been praying for your book for 2 weeks, unknowingly.

    I signed up for “Making Your Home A Haven” Fall Challenge by WomenLivingWell.org. Mostly because I wanted some Spiritual change in my home and it’s an EASY Challenge.
    WEEK 1: Light a candle in your home and every time you see it…PRAY for Peace and Patience.

    Today, I discovered the perfect book to take my challenge from an one month commitment to an entire year.

    Funny how things workout!
    I started this month with “Living and Active” challenge by http://www.peak313.com.

    Even if I don’t win your book, I LOVE that you were called to write and you wrote it!
    Thank You!!!
    Congratulations on your exciting release!

    I have a feeling I will enjoy browsing your blog too.

    Best of Luck!

  18. I cannot wait to indulge in the house giggle fest while reading and applying the principles and strategies!! My daughters’ laughs are too cute! Thank you for sharing your love with us, your readers and fans! Way to go with the huge endeavor! Thank you from this Mom’s heart!!! Blessings to you and your family.

  19. Can’t wait to read the book, will probably give as Christmas gifts…already have one mom friend in mind it would be perfect fo! 🙂
