    • ME TOO. EVEN BETTER, TO OFFER THIS WONDERFUL RESOURCE FREE TO THOSE OF US WHO DO NOT HAVE THE FINANCES AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE. THANK YOU.

        • Thanks for sharing this link, Pearl. And for echoing our heart — yup, we’re delighted to provide daily free content here at (in)courage and via emails to our subscribers. That’s why we exist – as a ministry to bring soul food and daily encouragement to our sisters in Christ who gather from across the globe.

          And we also love being able to occasionally offer our readers the chance to pick up more than one blog post at a time — through our published books and devotionals. For years our readers have asked for (in)courage books and resources and we’re delighted to be able to respond to that need with resources like A Moment to Breathe. That doesn’t change any of the daily, free content we will continue to provide at the blog, it just expands the resources we’re able to offer our community.

          And yup, as Pearl so graciously shared, we always always offer free samplers from our published books — and better yet, have enjoyed giving away free copies of the books to women on the launch teams. So we hope there’s always something here for everyone.

          Warmest wishes to all,
          Lisa-Jo Baker

    • Not all of us have young children or work outside the home- or have finances for products you’re selling. If it’s not a site about God’s word – I don’t have a need for it- I get plenty of advertisements – don’t need anymore .

      • Hi there Mary,

        We’re delighted to provide daily free content here at the (in)courage blog and via emails to our subscribers. That’s why we exist – as a ministry to bring soul food and daily encouragement to our sisters in Christ who gather from across the globe.

        And because we know that the women who gather here are coming from all walks of life you’ll find stories from every age and life stage represented at (in)courage. Our hope is that while one article might minister to one woman, the next one will speak to her sister in Christ.

        warmest of wishes

  1. Hi ladies,
    I did my Christmas shopping early….guess what my family and good girlfriends (who deserve a moment to breathe) are getting for Christmas? You guessed it – this wonderful devotional filled with “REAL” stories by “real” women with a focus on finding your identity in Christ. For $12.99 for both, you can’t beat it!
    Thanks (in)courage,
    Blessings,
    Bev xx

  2. Ladies,

    Life today seems so much busier than ever. I thought with the advent of technology life was to get easier not harder. As I get older I also find I have more responsibilities. Why do we try to cram so much “good” into our lives and not have any margin. Currently doing a Bible Study by Priscilla Schirer “Breathe” about Sabbath Rest and putting margin into your lives. Believe it or not God ordained a Sabbath Rest. He freed us from the slavery of work & doing. We still feel the need to be enslaved to stuff, work, etc. Sounds like a great devotional.

    Blessings 🙂

  3. Seriously? I’m reading this in the pick-up line at school! 🙂 And I ordered two of these books because the sampler download was so encouraging. One for me and one to share! Thank you!

    • Pearl. You’re my favorite. I love that you’re actually IN the pick-up line! And I am so glad that the sampler touched your heart. Blessings, and may you capture that elusive moment to breathe!

  4. If we are too busy then we need to STOP and reduce our commitments. God’s Word tells us that our highest calling is to be a wife, then a mother…..and everything else is a far lower priority. There are so many articles about busy mothers needing a few minutes of rest, but we are often too busy of our own making. Slow down and make time for what is important. For years I was over busy, over achieving (successfully) because I felt I ‘had to’. God pulled me up hard and now I read with sadness of how so many other women are struggling, just like I used to, because they try to do too much. Slow down sisters and enjoy life!

    • Amen to that Ruth. We’re always grateful for the reminder from our sisters to slow down. Our hope is that this book will be one more voice sharing a tender reminder that God has not created us for the crush and the rush — but that the God who breathed His own life and Spirit into us will help us breathe out our anxiety and in His gift of presence.

  5. This is an awesome deal , think I’ll get one for myself and my adult Daughter too for a Christmas gift
    We both do our daily devotional and love that mug too , will work well for our coffee , tea or hot cocoa as we read daily .
    Enjoy your evening and blessings to all .
    Thanks for sharing ladies !
