Changing things up
Some things will remain the same–
Each week you’ll get to visit via video with Bloom founders Jessica Turner and Angie Smith as they talk through several chapters at a time with the author (you’re going to love Jean!); Robin Dance will continue supporting the videos with blog posts. You can expect new content on Mondays and Thursdays.
Because we hope to hear from many of you, we’re creating multiple ways to connect–
As always, once you view the videos and read the companion posts, you can share your thoughts in comments right here on Bloom. Please don’t be shy!
And new this year, we’re creating a private Facebook Group for those who’d like to to discuss further what you’re learning, how the book and videos are challenging you, and how the Lord is working in your life as you move toward greater intention.
The beauty of our Bloom (in)courage book club is even if you miss a day (or a week or find us years later…!) the content will always be available here on the Bloom page, enabling you to watch videos and read the posts anytime.
Be sure to subscribe to Bloom (in)courage emails so you’ll receive every update; it really is the best way to keep current.
