  1. Hi Ladies,
    Aliza, first I love that you consider yourself to be an “apprentice” to Jesus. You’re not just following, but you are learning to walk in His footsteps…to become more like Him. My husband and I love Canada!! It gives me a chance, in some parts, to practice my very rusty French. As huge hockey fans, we know the words to “Oh Canada” quite well. I love your fresh voice here!! You are wise beyond your years.

    Anna, Who better to be a community coordinator? Your smile is contagious and you just have a way of making people always feel welcome. I don’t know how you do it all with your precious band of littles?? But you do it well. Joining with you in loving all things Fall!! You have always been so welcoming to me here.

    Jen, I feel like I’ve “watched” your children grow up. I’ve learned a lot from you about living more simply and on a tight budget. You are truly the one who throws open the door for friends and strangers alike. I loved your book on Hospitality….Martha Stewart couldn’t hold a candle next to you because you focus on “Hey, there you are….come in…how are YOU?” vs. “Hey, look at me and my wonderful home and awesome food and decorating.” Do put me on the mailing list for “Becoming” as I am an NC gal and adore the mountains!

    Thanks ladies for making this a rich and diverse place to prop up my feet and sit a spell. I look forward to watching your videos!! I’m mending from having my gall bladder removed and it will be nice to get to know you better 🙂

    Blessings,
    Bev xx

    • Hi Ladies,
      Aliza, first I love that you consider yourself to be an “apprentice” to Jesus. You’re not just following, but you are learning to walk in His footsteps…to become more like Him. My husband and I love Canada!! It gives me a chance, in some parts, to practice my very rusty French. As huge hockey fans, we know the words to “Oh Canada” quite well. I love your fresh voice here!! You are wise beyond your years. I keep a picture of Jesus holding the helpless lamb close to His beating heart of love….it helps me through times of grief and suffering….I wish I could send that picture to you. God IS good yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

  2. In Courage,

    Aliza-interesting that you consider yourself an apprentice. That fits so well as to who we should be. Not just followers of Jesus but a people who continually learn from Him. Like you I love helping the helpless or less fortunate. Which explains my Enneagram score of 2 (helper). Always enjoy your writing here. You bring a youthful experience to the table.

    Anna-Congratulations on your new book. I am jealous that you get to work from home. I wish my hubby & I could do that. You are spot on with Fall/Autumn being a big chance to see God in all His splendor. How do you find time to write devotions? Your life is so rich & full/busy, I,too, love long walks on trails. Being in nature helps me to see God more fully.

    Jen-I feel I’ve grown up with you. Read your writing from the beginning. You and I could be twins in the thought of living a Godly life on a budget. Rachel Ray has nothing on you. Your entertaining style isn’t about the “perfect house w/gourmet food”. It is about the people around the table. Just love that you bestow love on others in the midst of chaos. Your hospitality style is so much like my pastor’s wife. She & hubby invite singles, widows, widowers, married people whose spouse is working the holiday over to their home for a meal. We all bring food & share our lives with others. Family traditions are important. It is so like Jesus to invite others into your home & family.

    Welcome ladies to the In Courage family, I have enjoyed reading & learning more about each of you. You all bring something special to the blog. It would be so nice to have all the In Courage family gather together & meet each other. God bless you all for the work you are doing!

    Blessings 🙂

    • Thank you Beth. It’s been a balancing act for sure and also a gigantic blessing! I always say that I write in the cracks of the day, which is true. My oldest is in school, and my girls are in part-time preschool, so I have a few daytime hours to get things done as well.

  3. LOve this Spotlight session!,
    It’s great as we read and feel we know each contributor more!
    Awesome, thanks to you all ladies !

    My fave recharge is devotional, reading, relaxing by the water, and soaking in a bath with moisturizing bath melts!

  4. Aliza–Though we are decades apart in age, we still have some faves in common. Ice cream and coffee, meals out with friends, and recharging with a good book are surely just a few examples. Praying God’s blessings on all your endeavors–journalism, authorship, art, etc. You are one busy girl!

    Anna–I, too, am the mother of three children (adults now), and we have three granddaughters. ‘Love what you said about no such thing as bad weather. (“Made me smile!) We now live in the Midwest after forty years in Florida. The right clothing does indeed make all the difference! Praying God’s blessings on those seasonal devotionals for busy moms. A worthwhile project, for sure!

    Jen–I’m with you that anywhere the whole family can be together, that’s my favorite place. And count me in on coffee and conversation, reading, creating, and learning, too. Praying God’s blessings on this summer’s Becoming Conference–no doubt a time of time of fun, refreshment, and renewal!
