Be (in)couraged

by jessicaturner on August 5, 2009

I am terrible at keeping secrets, so it has been hard to not share that I have been invited to be a part of a new project called (in)courage, which is being launched by DaySpring (the Christian division of Hallmark) on August 10. While I can’t go into much detail until the reveal, I can say that it’s a site unlike any you’ve every seen for Christian women and I know many of you will fall in love with it.

More than twenty other amazing women are also apart of it, including several local blogging friends (can you guess who?). All week long these fabulous bloggers are being unveiled one at a time! Some of you may be here because Annie from Annie Blogs sent you my way. If you haven’t been to her site yet, you must check it out. She has a beautiful spirit and is a writer like Matthew! Moreover, she lives in Nashville. Annie, we must do coffee (well, I don’t drink coffee, but you know what I mean.)

Other (in)courage bloggers who have been introduced include:

And I have the pleasure of introducing another. Please meet Mary from Giving Up On Perfect. She is a kindred spirit – if you like this blog, you will like Mary- guaranteed. And, after yesterday’s post, let’s just say I need to follow her mantra! Please pay her a visit her so she can tell you a little more about (in)courage and introduce you to another one of the lovely ladies on the team…

I hope you will be (in) and visit next Monday. It is going to be a wonderful community with real and relevant blog posts, awesome products and more. I’m so excited.

And be sure to stop back here tomorrow for my weekly Giveaway Thursday- I am giving away a boatload of amazing crafty supplies.

Good morning, my (in)couraging partner! Thanks for the intro – and believe you me, I need to follow my mantra, too! I have been feeling super overwhelmed lately, so I can identify with your post from yesterday. We’ll make it through, I’m sure. And as our fellow (in)courager, The Nester, says – it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful. More good words to live by…!

After being together with many of the (in)courage ladies, I can't tell you what a joy it is to be working on this project with you. Once we all get together…who knows what crazy thing the Lord will do. :)
