  1. You actually make it appear really easy together with your presentation
    but I to find this topic to be really something which I believe I’d never understand.
    It sort of feels too complex and very large for me. I am taking
    a look ahead to your subsequent publish, I will try to get the hold of it!

  3. This place, this space where are hearts all come together is beyond an amazing blessing. And you, my dear Crystal Stine, were made for such a time as this. xxoo

  4. I’m really excited for these groups to begin their winter session! Though I’ve popped over to (in)courage many times over the past few years, I didn’t know about the community groups. Then, a friend of mine pointed me to one that looks tailor made for me! I am seriously counting the days until it starts! Thanks so much for offering them to us!

  6. I already get daily emails from incourage. I tried joining a group, but it looked like I was just adding my name to your general email list, so I didn’t do it. In the FAQ section on “How do I join?” it said that you were already full. I’m apparently not doing something correctly. lol 🙂 I’d like to join the “Empty Nesters/Women over 50” group. Can you help me to do this?

    • Hi Carol! I’d love to help you 🙂 On Monday, come back over to (in)courage and click on the “Community Groups” page at the top. Once you’re there, you’ll see a spot on the right that says “Join a Group” – and in that list you’ll be able to click on “Empty Nesters/Women Over 50” which will take you right to the list of available groups. You’ll be able to click on the group name to see the leaders, a small description of the group, and register by clicking the “add your link” button at the very bottom of the page. If you run into any trouble, please feel free to email incouragers@gmail.com on Monday and we’ll help make sure you get into the group you want!

  11. Thanks, Crystal! I’m going to go over and check out the groups available this season. I’m so excited for this first time I’m able to participate in these smaller community groups. Thank you and I’m grateful to all the wonderful women at (in)courage who have worked hard to develop so many ways to connect, be encouraged and to grow in this online community! From posts, to linked blogs, to Bloom Book Club and now the (in)courager groups…I’m blessed, challenged, encouraged and safely growing as I pursue God’s unique purposes for my own life. God Bless the day the (in)courage vision was born and God Bless all of you who work hard to further that vision!!

  12. These are great groups to help women in all stages of life. You can share information, love on each other, pray for each other and just do community the way God intended us to.

    Life can get hectic and trying to balance it all can seem overwhelming, but with community and friends on your side it makes the load a little better.

    Blessings! 🙂
