Welcome to March, lovelies. We’ve got your March Blog Prep Kit filled with writing prompts, national holidays and a few other goodies in this blog post to help you get motivated for March.
As a blogger, you know how hard it can be to find the time to write and often, the topic to write about. We know content is incredibly important so each month we’re giving you a blog prep kit with blog post ideas, social media prompts (aka hashtag holidays), and some noteworthy dates to add to your planner. We’ll also toss in a few fun, wacky and wild holidays just to liven things up a bit, as well.
I hope March finds you well and right on track with all those New Year’s resolutions you made. Keep pushing forward. March has 5 weeks (and weekends! Woohoo!) so there’s plenty of time to be uber-productive. Keep a smile on your face and a song in your heart and if you need a little extra motivation. Check in with us on Monday’s for our Motivational Monday posts.
Is it feeling like Spring where you are? It’s feeling more Spring-like here along the coast. Today was quite breezy and the sun was shining. March has, no doubt, come in like a lion!

Movies We Recommend This March
God’s Not Dead 3
If you missed God’s Not Dead (2014) and God’s Not Dead 2 (2016) you’ll want to catch up on those before heading out to watch God’s Not Dead 3 – A Light in Darkness coming to theatres March 30th.
The film features a star-studded cast, including David A.R. White, John Corbett, Ted McGinley, Shane Harper, Jennifer Taylor, Benjamin Onyango, with special appearances by Dr. Cissy Houston and Tatum O’Neal.
A church destroyed. A congregation silenced. A relationship shattered. Yet even in life’s darkest valleys, a small flame can light the way toward healing and hope.
A deadly fire rips through St. James Church, devastating the congregation and Pastor Dave. Adjoining Hadleigh University uses the tragedy to kick the congregation off campus. The escalating controversy creates a dilemma for the small church—can Christians fight for their rights and be the light for Christ at the same time?
Facing a court case and his own struggle to see Christ’s light in heartbreak, Dave asks for help from Pearce, his estranged brother—a big-city lawyer and an atheist—to fight for the church’s right to exist. The family reunion opens old wounds, as the brothers wrestle with the questions that pulled them apart years ago: Is God really good all the time? Where is God when bad things happen? Can Christ really heal the brokenhearted?
A Wrinkle in Time
Another great film to add to your list this month is A Wrinkle in Time, scheduled to be released by Walt Disney Pictures March 9th. This movie is sure to be visually stunning. A Wrinkle in Time is a sci-fi fantasy adventure based on the 1962 novel of the same name by Madeleine L’Engle. This film packs a powerful cast of big names like Oprah Winfrey, David Oyelowo, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Zach Galifianakis, and Chris Pine, along with some lesser known actors and actresses, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peña, Storm Reid. The movie follows a young girl who sets off on a quest, with the help of three astral travelers, to find her father, who went missing after discovering a new planet.
Two very different films, both dealing with light and darkness.
