Welcome to the Fold


Today is an exciting, amazing and terrifying day – all rolled up into one.  It’s been on my radar for just a couple of months, but has been years in the making



Today I’m joining forces with one of my dearest friends to reach out across this crazy online world to serve women.  These are not just any women – like any woman is – these are ministry wives.  What will we be doing?  We will be encouraging and introducing and praying for others through an (in)Courage Community Group.

We will have a private group on Facebook called (in)Couraged Flock.  This will be a safe place to openly discuss all that goes along with being a ministry wife.  There will be many listening ears, praying hearts and more virtual shoulders and hugs than you can imagine.  Each will encourage as they themselves are being encouraged.  It’s amazing how strength is renewed through that simple act.

Becky Daye, of Daye By Daye, is my co-conspirator in this enterprise.  We first met when her husband was called as Pastor of Community Life at a small church I attended.  We became close friends and have remained so through 3 collective moves. It was a privilege to be able to pray for her then as it is now that her husband is a senior pastor.



I have been blessed with many friendships with ministry wives from youth, to senior pastor, to campus ministry, to military chaplain.  It can be a difficult position, but you are not alone.  We want to make sure you know that you are not alone.

I speak for both of us when I say that we would LOVE to get to know you and your heart.

To join the (in)Couraged Flock community on Facebook, you can email Becky at ohappydaye (at) gmail (dot )com or Amy at amyctilson (at)gmail (dot) com.



Please check out the (in)Courage website for other community groups that are forming.  Each covers a specific need it is designed to meet with leaders who have a heart for encouraging their community.  If you are looking for community, please join.  If you know someone that would benefit from this please send them our way.

*I will be away for most of the morning and afternoon today.  I may not be able to get your invite into the Facebook group out until later in the day.
