  1. Hahaha! August is my niece’s first name, and my favorite month, too! I’ll be 33 on August 9th. Looking forward to celebrating here with you all!

  2. I’m looking forward to spending August with (in)courage!!! I turn 38 on August 9th and I have mixed feelings about it but now I definitely have some one to celebrate with.
    Thanks for all you do!!!!

  3. August is bringing some major God changes in our life…..we go from years of ministry over seas in Papua New Guinea back to state side living. there is possibility we will need to get a normal job (out side ministry job). not much fear there for i love making contact with those in the workforce who are not saved…
    our daughter was born August 29, the love of our life…she everything a daughter could ever be…wise hearted, courageous, sings like dream and loves God with all her heart. missionary to Papua New Guines, mother to our sweet grandchildren.
    August could bring death as my mother is ready to be out of the decaying shell she lives in and slip into the dress of heaven…Lord Jesus make her dress soon please.
    there more packed weeks here in Papua New Guinea then on to visit our daughter for a week then to the states to visit son. sure hoping some of that good August sweet corn is still around……no such thing in Papua new Guinea, even though they try. Most of all looking for times of refreshment and encouragement for July was just work, work, work. August yeah i see some hope in it.

  4. OH WOW!!! August is going to be awesome!
    I’m working on an ebook right now. It’s about Helicopter Moms! 😉
    Wish I could participate…..I just can’t beat that deadline.

    I <3 (in)courage!!!

  5. *clapping my hands together in excitement* Hooray!! Hooray!! for August!! How awesome and wonderful that I share MY birthday (Aug 9th) with this wonderful, wonderful, inspiring site!!

  6. I have seen God’s hand of blessing on this place, look forward to observing the two year anniversary and celebrating along with everyone else.

  7. God talks via this inCourage website. It has made a huge impact on my life, my sister’s, and my Mom’s lives . Thank you, inCourage Team.
