Start Here

The first thing you need to know is that you’re welcome, just the way you are.

Whether you’re single or over 50 with grand kids. Whether you’re a blogger, a mama, an artist, an entrepreneur, or a book lover. Whether you stay home or work full time. Whether you’re outgoing or prefer an afternoon alone. You are so welcome here.

Because this is the place where sisters are born through shared stories and where community gathers around to lift others up and where we believe that the Kingdom of God is always and only a co-op and never a competition.

Dirty feet and tired hearts are all welcome.

In the fall of 2009, (in)courage opened its doors and invited women from all over the world to come away and rest awhile. Creating a space in the middle of the every day chaos. A space to breathe. A space to connect. A space to listen. And a space to hear from the God who names us His daughters.

Our Story:

You can read the full story of how we built this place that we like to think of as a bit like a beach house over here.

Our Heart:

Our relationship with Jesus is the heart of who we are and all we do. We realize that our readers are in many different places in their journeys of faith. All of you are welcome. And to learn more about what we believe and how we’ve all messed up click here.

Our Writers:

There are more than 30 women who write regularly for (in)courage. You can meet them over here. Almost every one has been with us since the beginning. And they take turns each day pulling up a chair to share their stories of what Jesus looks like in their gloriously ordinary, and often messy lives.

Our Team:

These are the women who work behind the scenes at (in)courage, and you can meet them here. From developing strategic relationships, creating and curating content, managing our community of more than 30 contributing authors, designing and producing product, engaging on social media, managing our book club, and everything in between, these are the hearts who bring the every day, gloriously ordinary stories to you, wherever you are in the world.

And because we want to hear your voice in this space, we have several opportunities for you to join us:


Each day you’ll receive encouragement (or should we say (in)couragement) delivered directly into your inbox to savor and share – and you’ll never need to worry about missing a post, giveaway announcement, or special (in)vitation! You can sign up to join our mailing list here.

Guest Post:

Because community is what this place celebrates we feature guest posts twice a week. If you have a story to share, we’d love to hear it. You can review our post guidelines, calendar, and submit a post over here.

Bloom Book Club:

A few times a year we all gather around some good words with feet up on the sofa and laugh and cry our way through a good book. Together. Is there anything better? You can check out all our past studies and our recent Recommended Reads over here.

Artist Partners:

We know that not everyone who reads (in)courage is a blogger, and that many of you are incredibly talented artisans who offer beautiful, encouraging products. We’re always interested in partnering with artists who share the (in)courage heart and vision, and look forward to showcasing our own (in)courage products & resources as well as those from our community.
