The JOY Dare: I DARE You!

UPDATE: I am in the process of launching a new website that will be a resource for finding and sharing family traditions. Please sign up to be notified when it launches!
Thank you!

Many of you know that I've been speaking/sharing for a number of years about the "JOY on the Journey" of Life, which is found through Jesus Christ. In light of that, I was THRILLED to find The JOY Dare, based on Ann Voskamp's Book One Thousand Gifts. The "Dare" is to record 1,000 gifts from God in a year. Get your family and friends involved in the Dare! What a GREAT way to share JOY!

I wanted to do a quick post with the link for The Joy Dare for March, so those who are interested can jump in! I just downloaded the "One Thousand Gifts, A Thousand Thanks" ap on my phone, too!

My response to Today's (March 15) Dare "Three gifts given away:"

My friend, Dick Bowley's book, A Journey In The Light
Christmas Pajamas, (and dinner, and memories) given to Family and Friends
A beautiful Bird of Paradise for a friend's birthday! 
I DARE YOU to focus on the JOY in your life! Please take a moment to post a comment below and let me know if you're going to take the Dare! I hope you will!

P.S. For more information, and inspiration, I highly recommend Ann Voskamp's blog, A Holy Experience. On Mondays, I will be joining her link up to share my list of JOY-filled gifts!



  1. Thanks, Jamie, looks like a book I'd enjoy!


  2. Ok I am going to try this. I have alot of empty journals. So each day write down 3 things that bring joy? now what if I am behind two months already.

  3. Kim, I'm going to try to catch up with one or two extra a day. I'm behind, too! Here's the link for March "Ideas" to get you started! Cut and paste the following link, and scroll down for a list to get you started for the rest of March:

  4. Just saw this, Jamie, but I love it! I'm going to try to take a look at some of the links and read about it more when I get a chance. Thanks for sharing!!
