encourage me: (in)courage.me

holy experience

Yesterday, a servant-leader and a poet, who inks out all her love with the pen of angels, the one and only Ann Voskamp of A Holy Experience, linked to a clammering me in a “chain of anticipation.”  Among more than twenty other honored writers, Ann and I introduce to you an exciting new site for women. (In)Courage will be what Ann calls “a place to simply be and meet the I AM, Living Water…a place to water hearts.”

(in)courageYou’ll learn so much more about (In)courage when it launches August 10th, and if you follow our links for the next two days, you’ll be introduced to some of the other women participating in a vision worthy of a daily read. Until then, follow @incourage and see Incourage.me for a way you can participate, but not before you meet, Emily.

Chatting at the SkyDoes it surprise you in the least little bit that I get to introduce to you Emily from Chatting at the Sky as one of the writers on the (in)courage team? Visit her now, please, and watch how well she studies and values the art of space, of simple, soul-breathing space. Honest and aesthetically pleasing, Emily’s writing invites us to stop and breathe and to take note, how the holy and the humorous mingle. I’m sure you’ll make it your habit, too, to visit her safe place and to join us all at (In)courage.

MONDAY, AUGUST 10th! Would you meet with us there?

Leave me a note and tell me where I can visit you, too, and what you’re hoping to find in such a space for women. You’re welcome here.

Thank you for coming. Always.

*UPDATE* If the Links for (in)courage are not working, it’s for an exciting reason – the site is about to launch. The smart people are unkinking all kinks and (en)coding all the codes. {If I start using ( ) all the time, give me a bit. Seems to be quite a sickness, but I’ll get better soon.}

I might just be totally clueless (am quite good at that), but the links to (in)courage don't work for me. Is that because the site isn't up yet? Just thought I'd let you know, in case they're supposed to work.

And also, WAY COOL.

Heather, you are right. The link may look broken for a bit this weekend because we're making the site go live! Yeah!
Lovely Amber, I'm not sure which is more beautiful...you or your words. Either way, I'm grateful to have both in my life and to be (in) with you.
