The Great Giggle Challenge. Are you IN?

I recently had to type up these 60 Ways to Giggle for a project. Each one is filtered throughout my book – but it had been a while since our family read through the entire list one by one.

We started laughing and doing many of them. We had almost forgotten how simple it is to have fun and enjoy each other. Life just gets in the way some days.

Laughter is just contagious. It just lightens the mood in our home. My kids just rest and relax when we lead the way.

Giggling isn’t the entire point of the book – the majority is about making virtues, love and laughter a daily part of your family life. However, I do have a big passion and drive to get families across the world to lighten up. Especially if you aren’t wired to be silly.




We need to do the robot.

Or ice skate on paper plates.

Or do some absurd accents.


So, I had an idea… this is how my brain works.


I was thinking about my “one thing” to support We Welcome Refugees

+ ADD +

My desire to keep families smiling and giggling together

It just happens to be a year since my book launched, Happy Birthday Ole Girl





Here’s How It Works:

Step 1.

Print or download this list – and just pick ONE. Try just ONE idea with your family

Step 2.

Video or photograph your family doing your ONE GIGGLE MOMENT off THIS LIST and post it to Instagram or Facebook

Step 3.

Hashtag it #GreatGiggleChallenge  (see sample text below to make it super easy)

Step 4.

Tag a friend (and/or mention them in your video) – a family you want to try it after you (just like Ice Bucket Challenge, much less freezing)

Heres the Fun! Ron and I want to personally donate $1 for the first 1,000 videos/photos that are uploaded to help the We Welcome Refugees project with Ann Voskamp.


SAMPLE TEXT to use below images or video:

Join the #GreatGiggleChallenge. Our family just needed a good laugh and it’s for a great cause. Go pick one way to giggle from this list and then share your photo or video – you’ll be a part of the joy spreading AND money being raised to support #WeWelcomeRefugees. I’m challenging ____ family to go next and you won’t be mad at me for this challenge, your kids will thank me!


So that’s it.

Have fun. It’s for a really great cause. Go forth and GIGGLE.

Although, this might feel like an odd combo you. It not odd to me. Some days I feel helpless and hopeless at all the things going on in the world. I am hoping to raise awareness and also turn on focus on both. What’s happening afar and what we’re missing right here.

I can’t think of a better way to acknowledge and honor those running for their lives. To stop and acknowledge the gifts in our very own lives. Let’s giggle for a cause. It’s both.

I’ll also pick my favorite 5 videos or photos to win a copy of In This House, We Will Giggle and a NEW PRODUCT coming out this Christmas. It’s the new version of ABC Scripture Cards. You’ll flip. Promise.
