incourage I love stumbling around on the web.  It is amazing what you might find when you aren’t even looking.

That is exactly how I found it… I just found the most inspiring site called (in)courage.

I was just messing around on the computer when I bounced over to Robin’s site Pensieve (You know I am a sucker for a Harry Potter reference, right?) and while hanging out there I discovered her post about (in) courage.  I was intrigued and so I “clicked” and found this lovely site.

The site, which launched today (ironically) houses some 20 women as contributors to this faith-filled hub.  They describe it thus:  “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 hoped.

And just like that I was SOLD.

It’s a place of courage.


It got me thinking about what encourages me in my life. Of course my family encourages me. I LIVE for my husband and children.  But something more, really….WOMEN. Specifically, the strength, wisdom, faith and strong voices that come from the women in my life.  Women from the blogosphere, from my social circles, from my family… all of their voices support and keep me going strong throughout this life journey of mine.  I take comfort in their wisdom and look to them for inspiration.

I’m looking forward to seeing how (in) courage develops over the next couple of months.  I’ll be watching.

In the meantime, be sure to check out the ladies of (in) courage. All very inspirational…
