  1. Keep strong in the faith, Sisters-in-Christ, and know that God Almighty has got your back!

  2. Thanks Steve,

    The notes on these “cards” are appropriate for anyone in many situations and we thank you for thinking of us in this way.

    Blessings on you, Barb, the team and your whole ministry!

  4. Sorry I know nothing about linking up… but I wanted to say how much I needed to read this today. Thanks so much! I especially liked the part about asking God for encouragement for myself. How simple and how important!!

    What an epiphany! Keep up the God work!

  6. The link-up wasn’t working for me. I love these encouragements. This has been a tough year for me dealing with my aging father.

    First of in January we moved him into an assisted living. All was well for a while. A medication mix-up a few months later sent him to the hospital for 4 days and then to rehab for 11 days. Now back at assisted living he’s doing ok, but not great. His dementia is getting a little worse. He isn’t always happy at the assisted living.

    This year has been good in that I got to connect with my sisters. I finally had some “real time” with them. We discussed our growing up and time after leaving home. It was a sort of reconciliation.

    Blessings to all the women of In Courage!
