For the past seven years we’ve been doing life here together at (in)courage.
And we’ve learned so much from you all. We’ve heard your stories and your heartaches, your celebrations and disappointments. And over and over again we’ve heard that you spend time here for the same reason we do — because (in)courage is a place where you will always find yourself among friends.
We love that after seven years online this continues to be a community where women can feel safe, loved, and welcome just the way they are.
That kind of feedback has shaped our new logo and tagline and today we’re delighted to share how it’s shaped the new look to the (in)courage website.
You may have noticed we’ve done some rearranging. If you’re reading in an email you’ll want to click here to come to the site in person today to see all the changes.
We continue to want our virtual space to reflect the women who gather here. So today, we hope you’ll enjoy the new design and the ways we trust it encourages and welcomes you to connect with the God who gathers us here as well as with His daughters who all call this space home.
Some things to note:
New home page: makes it easy to connect, subscribe, and discover what’s going on in the community.
Fresh design: with plenty of white space, hand drawn elements, and room to breathe.
Shop: a curated (in)courage store with all our favorites in one place.
A place to connect: in our new community forum. Here is the space where conversations can continue beyond the blog post. It’s the best of what we loved about (in)couragers (the online community groups we’ve hosted in the past) — it’s a space to connect more deeply with other women walking through similar stories. It’s free and easy to register.

Our editorial and marketing manager, Crystal Stine, walks you through the process in a step-by-step video over here:
Everything you love about (in)courage is still the same. Everything you’ve taught us about fresh ways to connect should be reflected in this new space.
And it’s thanks to a team you don’t often get to see. Because behind this ministry for women is an amazing team of talented guys who worked really hard to make this redesign happen (feel free to send them a little love in the comments today too).
Thank you for continuing to be friends who make this a place of faith, connection, and friendship.
We’d love to hear how long you’ve been part of the (in)courage community. And if you have a story about how you have found yourself among friends here, we’d love to hear it in the comments today!Leave a Comment
