{in}courage: a comfy place for women

Do you know about {in}courage.me?  It's only a couple of years old but I have had the fortune to be a part of it for a while now.  What is it?  They describe it like this:

More than anything, (in)courage is about relationships – with God and each other.  We realize that our readers are in many different places in their journeys of faith. All of you are welcome.  When we asked ourselves what kind of place we were building, we finally came to see it as a bit like a beach house. You can put your sandy, dirty feet on the coffee table, laugh late into the night with friends, and also hear God’s voice clearer than perhaps anywhere else. Life just feels more vibrant and real, as if you’ve stumbled upon a glimpse of heaven and it’s nothing like you ever imagined but everything you’d always hoped.

For me, {in}courage is the equivalent of a big comfy chair,  a cup of hot cocoa and a good book.  It's a place to go and relax, read stories of other inspiring women, get book recommendations or some daily encouragement.

It can no longer be denied that as a culture, we have embraced online communities.  For women, I think they are especially attractive because we are busy:  from the mom of 3 who savors her midnight-quiet time to the business woman who needs some quick and easily accessible inspiration.  {in}courage is just the place for women of all walks to go and share, learn together and build one another up in faith.

It is Christian based, lead by women of faith, but women just like you and me.  It is a safe place, full of inspiring articles (like this one on finding rest), special events, book clubs,  and more.

If you want to know more, here's a little video they put together:
