I is for Incouragement


I have been blessed so much by entering this online bloggy world.  My first steps were not as fledgling writer (ACK! that word) but as a reader.  Through the years, the twists andturns of relationships have led to amazing opportunities.

Nearly a year ago, my life took a huge leap in a way that felt so right, but so small at the same time.  Which leads me to ask if you are interested in taking this small leap with me this year?  If so, what are your plans for April 26 & 27?

I’m talking about the (in)RL unconference all about the hard work of STAYING in community.  The best part is that this is COMPLETELY FREE Y'ALL!!

In just over 2 weeks, thousands of women will sit in front of their computers, laptops, tablets, or smart phones to receive a blessing in video format.  These same women will gather together on Saturday around the world in groups of 2 to 100 for yet another blessing – COMMUNUITY!  I will be one of those women and I’d love for you to be one, too!

Go to incourage.me to register for this year’s most fabulous unconference for women – (in)RL 2013!!  I can assure you that you have no idea what you are missing, unless you went last year and are unable to attend this year. (So sorry if this happens to be you.) After you register, find a local meetup to attend.  The link is right there with the registration.


Because of last year’s meetup, I was able to eventually grow relationships with new women and become involved with the (in)Couragecommunity groups.  I have received way more encouragement than I have given – that’s another benefit of being in community with others. 

If you are feeling alone in your situation or season of life there is a group for you.  The second session is coming to a close, but groups will be forming again in the fall.

Jump in and let the water of friendship wash over you.



16 May our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal encouragement and good hope by grace, 17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good work and word.
2 Thessalonians 2:16-7

  1. It has been a while since I stopped by your home, and I miss it. I so wish I could come, I so really wanted to host, but we are going to be gone in St. Louis for a comp. Will there be a way to see it later?

    1. I can check and see for you. I'm glad you stopped by, I need to do the same. I've been a bit of a hermit lately. I hope you enjoy St. Louis (just don't tell me you are a Cards fan). :)

    1. You should definitely check it out. I just had to edit my post because I forgot to put in here that it is absolutely free. Yikes! How could I forget that?

  3. What can I say? Love walking this road with you. Thank you for honoring me by choosing to include me in your journey. So blessed by that Amy! I can't even say how much!!!
    We had a planning meeting for our meetup last night. At this point, I have no idea if I will be there or not!!! These next couple of weeks are sure to be interesting.
    Dave asked me if I was going to live blog the labor and delivery! Seriously?!!! :)

    1. Spoken like the husband of a blogger. I think it's more vlog or podcast material myself! ;) If people are going to learn about me then they have to learn about you - this is just where I am right now and hopefully for a long time to come. I'm sure everyone will understand if you are MIA for the INRL. Just to be safe, maybe you should register the baby, too! :)

  4. I did this online last year, but there always seem to be relatively few bloggers in my area. Plus, I have TKD classes on those mornings. ;) I know you will have a blast again.

    1. You should register so you can watch the video content anyway. This isn't just for bloggers, so if you know anyone who might be interested, please share the link. I'm definitely looking forward to it.

    1. I haven't commented yet, but your post made me want another phone conversation - a real one without babies due and impending weather. Warm hugs to you, friend!
