I’m so excited for the kick-off of our new Anchor at Home season THIS Thursday, October 6th, at 7pm PST! We have an amazing season planned with inspiring speakers, musicians, and surprises! Women will be gathering at watch parties in homes everywhere.

Not only will we be gathering together in person to view the Anchor at Home on our YouTube channel, we will also be virtually in this TOGETHER spreading the Good News about Jesus and the grace and peace He brings.

Watch Party… wait, what do you mean? Check out this quick clip to learn how easy it is to gather some friends and be encouraged!

I’ve encouraged each of my guests to invite a friend who needs to hear about the hope of Jesus as I am planning the details of my watch party. My usual set up consists of a selection of beverages, my traditional charcuterie board, and a display of delicious desserts.

Peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

For my watch party I have decided to make my newest favorite cookie — peanut butter chocolate chip. I love to make cookies and it has been a hobby of mine for as long as I can remember. The true confessions of Katie: I love cookies and at one point would call myself a cookie dough addict. Can anyone relate?!

So, in my tradition and love of cookie baking and serving, I have decided to include my newest favorite peanut butter chocolate chip cookie to my array of desserts at my watch party. I am including the simple recipe below:
