Is anyone else having one of those mornings? You know the kind — when you have all the good intentions in the world, but you wake up late or are up half the night or wake up to chaos of some sort? And before you know it, the whirlwind of life has blown apart your plans for the day and you find yourself sitting in your pajamas, still wearing yesterday’s makeup, wondering if you can get a do-over for the day.
We know about those kind of days, friend. And if you are having one — or if you know what it’s like to have one — we are so very glad you’re here. Because here at (in)courage, we like you just as you are, whether that’s showered and focused, or pajama-clad and overwhelmed! We are grateful for this place to be real about our struggles, our messes, our “one of those days.” And, of course, we’re real about Jesus, who loves us all and welcomes us with arms wide.
This is why we’re so excited to share our newest book with you, A Moment to Breathe: 365 Devotions that Meet You in Your Everyday Mess.
Here at (in)courage we’ve found one thing to be very true: our heartaches may be different, but our hearts are the same. And that’s what you’ll find in this devotional: stories from women in every season of life, women who have been there, women who understand.
This collection of everyday stories from 80 different authors (meet them all here!) is where you can find yourself among friends —friends who’ll lean in close and say, “Me too!” Through our stories, the bonds of friendship deepen as we listen to each other, laugh with each other, and learn from each other. Because we’re better when we’re living this one beautiful life together.
With 365 readings, each day begins with a passage of Scripture, tells a story of everyday faith, and encourages you to take a moment to breathe with a simple but fun way to complete your day. Our prayer is that these devotions will become a place your soul can exhale . . . where you know that you have a place to be, just as you are . . . a place with many voices, one heart.
A Moment to Breathe will be available to purchase next month, but because we are so excited for you to have this extra bit of hope and encouragement to reach for in your everyday, we’re giving away a 10-day sampler from the book! The sampler contains the first 10 days of devotionals, and it’s absolutely free to you.
We know life can be wonderful and wonderfully messy all at the same time. We also know that God often moves in unseen ways through our most ordinary days. Which is why we see each story in this book as an offering of hope, from one heart to another.
Sister to sister. Friend to friend. We can’t wait to help you find a moment to breathe.
