  1. Hi Ladies,
    I’m new, but I am loving Incourage! Will InRL be available to view after the fact? I’m traveling this weekend, but would love to view later!
    Enjoy your time together, ladies!

  2. I love you women for doing this!!! Just watched the webcast and Chosing Joy this day, as I continue to walk through this HARD season in my life. HE is so faithful to bring this to me for such a time as this. May the Lord bless all of us for participating and cherishing each other.
    Until HE shouts,

  3. […] manager of (in)courage – had more good stuff up her sleeve than one day could hold, theΒ (in)RL festivities kick off today. While you may be meeting-up with folks tomorrow, today you can enjoy some quality you time and […]

  4. Kudos to the (in)courage team, and prayers for all meet-ups. May you feel Jesus holding you, as you bravely venture out into your community. : )

    I’m in Oklahoma, and attending the Tulsa meet-up, so holler if you are near!! I would love to meet you.

  5. This is definitely a little off topic, but I was wondering if (in)courage is still doing monthly desktop calendars. I LOVED them! And maybe I’m just missing them now?

  6. I totally missed this info until this morning!! How awesome! I soo wish that I could join you all. I think God is using this as a test for me this morning. I got so excited when I saw that you guys had this going on this weekend and then realized that I don’t have any money to even register. Could I borrow it from a friend….sure….but we are in need of other things right now so it was definitely a test and I hope I passed. I will be praying for you as you all come together. I will be there in spirit πŸ™‚

    Again….what an awesome way to bring women together in Christ!!!

  7. Anyone else not get their t-shirt yet? I signed up on April 11th, but still waiting.

  8. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching the videos this morning! I was almost late for work as I was engrossed in hearing Sara’s story. But it was well worth it. Her story touched my heart. I am in the process of writing a book about lessons learned from the dying and so this one was special to hear. I’ve sat beside many a dying patient as I worked for 25 years as a cardiovascular nurse specialist. I kept notes on the lessons I learned from each one.

    I look forward to the other sessions. What a blessing to be able to access this conference online. And I love getting to see and hear many of my favorite bloggers!

    Blessings and love,

  9. I thought today was really wonderful! I know SOOOO much time and effort went in to it….KNOW it was worth it!!!!

    THANKS!!!!! I am looking forward to tomorrow….though I will probably be right up to the 48 hour deadline getting all the videos in!

    GREAT JOB! May the Lord multiply all of it!!!!!!

  10. Loved, loved, LOVED the videos today! What a blessing this (in)courage community is…so grateful to be a little part of it. Thanks SO much for all of your time and hard work! I can hardly wait for tomorrow! πŸ™‚

  11. Thank y’all so much for sharing what community really means.. This is awesome.. I’ve been the quite (shy) person. I would keep to myself and still do. But y’all having open up doors that I thought could not be opened. Thank you and God bless y’all.

  12. Today was amazing. Tomorrow can come fast enough. Thank you so much and for the materials coming in May. I’ll be able to share with other people as well and learn even more about community.

    God Bless – You all rock community πŸ˜€

  13. A huge round of applause to the inCourage team you ladies are a true blessing and an amazing encouragement for millions of us. I live in Las Vegas (Yes Sin City) ladies here are so reserved and not very in to community so I am often discouraged but am not determined more than ever to carry on to keep trying to keep reaching out and opening my home to women all over the valley thank you for all you do day after beautiful day for being REAL and sharing your hearts with the world!!! Cindy

  14. The words “thank you” for (in)RL are so inadequate. Even though I ended up watching the videos alone at home, I felt so apart of the Community of Christ. Bless you all for all you’ve done and shared. Thank you for being real and encouraging me to be vulnerable and real – exactly who Jesus made me to be.

  15. Thank you to incourage for an amazing opportunity, to come together in real life, to experience community… to just BE. So glad that your God-sized dream was realized because it has brought so many women together, online and in real life. Today was wonderful!
