    We’re bringing an (in)courage conference to life! Well, better to think of it as an un-conference, since we’re hoping it will be all kinds of unexpected – no waiting lists, no need for plane tickets, no limited number of spots – everyone is (in) and no one’s out with (in)RL {in real life}!

  11. This is the best site and they are having amazing giveaways right now. But….enough. I am off of FB to finish up these decorations. 🙂

  12. I am new to incourage. These trays are gorgeous and they would be a great addition for entertaining!

  13. Here’s my fb post: Is entering the giveaway at (in)RL {www.inrl.us}! The (in)courage community is a great one to be a part of!

    Thanks for the giveaway!!!

  30. {in}courage. I post quite a bit from this site… it offers some of the greatest daily inspiration on the Internet for Christian women. If you have a minute or two, take a peek at a giveaway they are doing for 12 days of Christmas. 😉

  38. Can’t wait for (in)RL! Check out the link below for more info… and be sure to head over to incourage for fun Christmas giveaways! 🙂

  39. What a great idea!
    FB post: FB helps connect to far-flung family and friends, and begin new friendships. But do you ever feel just a tad disconnected? Well, the gals at (in)courage aim to address that, too. On their site they really do encourage. Besides that, they offer an on-line community of women growing and celebrating life and God’s blessings. They’ve offered a lot–including thought-provoking and encouraging blog posts, contests, webinars, a book club. Now—they’ve come up with a way to extend that community beyond cyber-space and into our lives with an un-conference in April 2012. I’m looking forward to it. Check it out at —

  40. I have discovered incourage a few months ago and have really enjoyed it–the writers are really so encouraging! They have some great giveaways going on right now!

  41. “Excited about being part of these women and their community. Women who struggle daily and help others as they open their hearts.”

  42. FB: (in)courage is a website with wonderful articles and some great giveaways this month. Check it out! I also added a comment to the post with a link to the conference.

  44. I “heart” (in)RL — your daily encouragements help me daily to stay strong no matter how may day go that day. Thank you for sharing with your readers! I shared on FB another reason I love you guys .. the giveaway! 🙂

  45. Here’s my facebook post: I’m entering today’s giveaway at (in)courage…I think the (in)RL – Real Life un-conference sounds like a great time.

  46. Here is my Facebook post: “The (in)courage Web site is a place for women to “gather,” share stories, and encourage one another in their walk with Jesus Christ. April 27 and 28, the site is hosting an (in)courage in real life ([in]rl) “un-conference” conference at sites all over the world. Women will have local meetups (mini-beach house parties) to connect with one another, discover new friends, and enjoy live webcasts from the (in)courage community. Looking forward to the fun and fellowship! Check it out at http://inrl.us/index.php.”

  47. My post on FB:
    I am so blessed by the daily email devotions I receive from (in)courage.me and look forward to their (in)RL conference where you can stay home, be (in)couraged by awesome women of God, and connect with others around the world! Check it out: {www.inrl.us}

  48. I love in(rl) bc it brings a global community of girlfriends all together with the goal of learning from and encouraging each other.

  49. I posted a link to the (in)RL video and said: “It’s the conference that comes to you! Just girlfriends getting together (with the aid of the internet) to share, connect, and be (in)couraged! Coming this spring to a living room & laptop near you! ;-)” Can’t wait! 😉

  50. (In)courage is such a great website! I’m so glad I found it, and I know it will impact me and many more by what they stand for!

  51. I am SO excited about (in)RL {www.inrl.us}. There are so many wonderful ladies that make up this group and it would be so fun to be part of it!

  52. Posted on Facebook to my dear friends: Check out (in)courage and get encouraged! I can’t tell you how many times God has used this site to pick me up when I needed it. Also, make sure you check out (in)RL; I’m excited about this gathering of honest, real women who love God just like I do!

  53. I’m loving the 12 days of Christmas Giveaways over at @incourage. Eight pillow covers up for grabs today – and 7 other giveaways still open! http://bit.ly/uSFDTl And if you don’t win it, there’s always a super discount code anyway! I am happy you told me about incourage Risa. The trays will be beautiful for serving Christmas goodies.

    original in real..

  54. the online world of support & encouragement is amazing, but connecting the power for friendship to real smiles & hugs? priceless.

  55. My FB message: “Just a reminded about an exciting weekend coming up in April. I am so looking forward to connecting with other women. For several years now, as I’ve been in the thick of mothering, I have been – or at least felt – very alone much of the time. So it’s time to start a new trend – one of women supporting, encouraging and loving on each. Register to be part of a great weekend! (followed by a link to (in)RL)”

  56. I sent an actual message to my close friends not a fb status. The message read: Just wondering if any of y’all would be interested in ‘attending’ something like this? http://www.inrl.us It would be a great Christian women/friends get together…we all need a reason to schedule actual time to see each other….let me know what you think! I’d be willing to have this at my house.

    Love y’all!

  57. My facebook post:

    If you need encouragement from someone on a daily basis, (and I’M not available), check out the facebook page incourage. There is so much information, sharing, support, and just fun stuff you could read all day! Enjoy! ♥
