At (in)courage, we believe that friendship can transcend time-zones and life-stages. We believe the hard work of getting along is worth it, and we believe that God created us for community. And that’s why we believe friendship isn’t something that happens accidentally, but it takes intentional, purposeful action.
But we also know, from our own experiences and the heart-stories that thousands of you share with us every year, that finding and making friends is hard. We know the challenges of being the new girl in town — of feeling like we’ve done everything and none of it seems to work. We’ve been hurt and we’ve hurt others.
Friendship is something we write about a lot on these pages, because friendship matters. Through the stories we share here, or in videos for (in)RL, our prayer is that you would be encouraged to celebrate the friendships God has brought into your life or take the brave step to reach out again. Going first often gives someone else the courage they need to take their next step. And sometimes we need to be the friend we wish we had.
If you think those are two good tips, just wait!
The (in)courage writers have come together to share their favorite 10 Tips to Be the Friend You Wish You Had, and we’d love to invite you to join us.
