  1. Thank you so much for following God’s leading. Loving forward to all the wonderful things to come.

  2. I am disappointed because to me it is simply duplicating what already exists and taking away what made you unique and met specific needs. But at least you have made clear where you stand and I know I need to go and look somewhere else.

    • Hey Jennifer – we know (in)RL and our community groups both hold a special place in the hearts of our community, and ours! But we’re excited to see what God has in store for (in)courage this year and how we can keep meeting those same needs in some fresh, new ways! We appreciate your grace and understanding as we follow where God is leading.

  3. Thank you, incourage team, for following God’s lead on this. I’m glad you are sensitive to His voice and open to making changes! That takes bravery! In the past I’ve definitely been stubborn and kept going with something that was “perfectly good enough” and worked, even though I knew God was trying to gently call me onward.

    I’ve loved the incourage facebook groups and I’ve really loved (in)RL. I do feel that it’s time to change that, somehow.. I hope you will be able to incorporate in real life, local meet ups or gatherings, whatever that looks like in the future! In the Omaha area we have a group of women who meet monthly-ish for coffee or dinner, just to chat and connect and be an encouragement to one another. This started because of inRL- so thank you. 🙂 Change is always tough, even good change, so I hope you are blessed by reminders of how God has used incourage in wonderful ways so far.

  4. Thanks for the links to resources I can share with friends. The videos, printables, and series on insecurities look great. I know they will be encouraging for me, and other women I share them with. Praise to God for the growth of this group, and for leading you into a new direction. Onward and upward!

  5. I did complete a survey last year and I am wondering if the changes will include women in the 50-60 age group?

  6. As a Mary & Martha consultant who has been a part of inCourage even longer, I am looking forward to the changes and tools to help me as I connect in real life with young women. I too would love some conversations/tools for my own age group as well-late 40-mid 60, where we are still raising kids, caring for parents and juggling it all.

  7. Let me say thank you for all you’ve done over the years! Your posts have encouraged me greatly! I have come to know some of the women and have prayed for many of them!

    Can’t wait to see what you all have in store for us this year. I, too, pray the changes will include stuff for women 50+ who are dealing with aging parents and work stress!

    Blessings to everyone and keep up the good work!! 🙂

  8. Thanks for sharing your ideas and plans, sounds very exciting, will there be any thing for the 50-60 year old ladies, or will just incorporate into the other ideas and tools. Just wondering!! Love to all!! Sheila Bard
