Do you have a dream to make a difference?
Well, I am thrilled to announce that I have been asked to be a part of a big dream.
A dream that started with this question.

“What if there was a site that was all about equipping and empowering women to connect with each other and become everything God created them to be through authentic messages of hope and encouragement?”


On Monday, August 10th, we launch (in)courage – home for the heart of women.
Twenty bloggers, passionate about encouraging women right where they are, have been asked by Dayspring (the Christian division of Hallmark) to help make this dream a reality.
I couldn’t be more honored to be a part of something this revolutionary.
Each writer is taking a day to introduce each other as we lead up to the big unveiling on Monday.
Think of it 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

Many of the bloggers you already know, or are about to fall in love with their hearts momentarily. We blog about different things, with our own unique “voice,” but are coming together with a common goal. Many of you found me through Kristen at We are THAT Family. I just adore her because I AM one of THOSE families and she puts a voice to my life.

But I get the privilege of introducing one of my precious new friendsAnnie from Annieblogs.
We couldn’t be more different statistically….she’s young, I’m not.
She’s single. I haven’t been for 16 years.
She doesn’t have children. I have way too many, but we are a lot alike in other ways.
We both love to laugh and we did a ton of that this weekend.
You all…she is HILARIOUS!
So go meet yourself some Annie because she is another (in)courage writer that is excited about sharing her life with you through this new site.
Mark your calendar….and then wait to be (in)couraged everyday.

(I am now going to rest in the assurance that I have been prayed for and will be taking a break from this computer. Three posts in two days…never a good idea).
