  1. I love this…it just spoke to my heart this morning and reminded me of the importance of community. I’m new(er) to the blogging world and (in)courage and have loved being a small part of this awesome community!

  2. So glad we finally get to talk about it! Showed my kids this morning & they were as excited as I was to see your beautiful faces and encouraging voices! So delighted to partner with you through my song ‘Surrounded by Your Love’. Blessings!

  3. Absolutely LOVE this video, the voices, the words, and the beautiful hearts and faces behind it all! Thanks for all you lovely ladies do to brighten our days! 😉

  4. Wow is all I can say!! Incredibly creative, encouraging, and fun!! Awesome video. Thanks for (in)courage-ing ME!
    Much love and Blessings,
    (P.S. Am I the only one who was waiting and waiting for Holley!! So wanted to hear your voice! Maybe next time?)

  5. Absolutely wonderful! I LOVED hearing the voices behind the writing. This is so fun and well done! I can’t wait to blog about it!

  6. […] through a few websites where I read and comment often. Today, one of those sites posted this video that I just thought was amazing. It is so, so, exactly what the (in)courage community is all about. […]

  7. Happy dancing…still :).

    I’m thankful for every aspect of this community, at times overwhelmed by its depth and beauty. Women are most lovely when they give *this* freely of themselves.

    To God be the glory.


  8. What’s full-joy is that this is not just a video. This place is our heart home as sisters in Christ, on this journey of faith. Beautifully true. I can sip God’s grace and love here. Thank you.

  9. This was beautiful. I love the overall vision captured here! Makes me feel like I’ve had an actual taste of going to the beach with a wonderful Jesus lovin’ bunch of women-friends. Thank you! And thank you for all you pour out here to make this community happen.
