Morning, friends! It's time for our Tenth Day of Christmas Book Giveaway!! Today, we have one of my very favorite books for you, The Artist's Rule by Christine Valters Paintner! Based on a Benedictine Rule of Life, but with creative/spiritual exercises throughout, it's accessible to "artist" and "non-artist" alike (" " because I believe we're all artists in our own lives, all gifted creatively in different ways, and all invited in to play whether we have "skills" or not! Anyway. My soapbox ;). So if you'd like to win: πŸ“š The Artist's Rule: Nurturing Your Creative Soul with Monastic Wisdom by Christine Valters Paintner AND πŸ“š Before We Get Started: A Practical Memoir of the Writer's Life by Bret Lott your job today is to "friend" someone else in the Abbey! You can wander through posts and click on someone's name you'd like to connect with, or search for someone specific (with the search button in the top left corner). Or, if you go to the Courtyard, there is a button next to the search magnifying glass, an "i" in a circle, and if you click that, you can see a list of every member in the community! Pick someone randomly, or see if you share anything in common by reading through their profiles, if you'd like. Then click the "connect" button in their profile, and it will send them a request. Come back here and comment that you friended someone, and you'll be entered in today's giveaway! Good luck, and Merry Christmas! (Yesterday's winner is @Susan Bradford - message me your address so we can get them to you!)
