Simply Loving A Community — 18 Comments

  1. Such a lovely post Barbie! We are blessed by some of the amazing communities we are part of – and of course they aren’t perfect! Your posts have been wonderful as always! Looking forward to (in)RL!

    I finally got a challenge recap up, so come on by and link up when you have a chance!

  2. I am hosting one at my home, here in NH, and I am SO looking forward to it! There are, seriously, only 3 women out of 12 that I know. So this opportunity to broaden my community is exciting. I so wish I lived in CA, though. I”ll be sending virtual hugs to all of you ladies!

  3. Oh Barbie, how I wish I were close enough to be a part of your in(RL) community. I must agree with you that the blogging community is indeed special and has written its way into my heart as I’ve grown close to so many amazing writers. Yourself included! 🙂

    • Oh Rosann, I pray one day the Lord would have us to meet. You’ve been such an encouragement in my life. Thank you for taking my hand and walking this journey alongside of me.

    • It is hard, but God is showing me that even in blogging it takes a certain level of vulnerability and transparency. Love you girl!

  4. I soooo wish I could join you for the conference! I am not far. I grew up in the bay area and am only 3 hours away! Maybe next time! I have a ladies “community” tea going on that afternoon for my own church. I really should be there. Blessings to you, Barbie! I find such truth and comfort in your words! Love, Rachael @ Inking the Heart

    • Oh girl, would love to meet you. Perhaps we can plan a day when we can meet up half way. I’ve done it with other bloggers and it’s such a gift to meet in person. Have a blessed week.

  5. Thanks for the reminder on the One Word check in. And I plan to tune in for the (in)courage conference this weekend. Last year was such a blessing for me. I still wear my t-shirt from that event.

    Blessings and love,

    PS. I am also thankful for our blogging community. I cannot tell you how many times a post written by another will bless me or be just what I needed to read. And how I’ve been encouraged through private emails from bloggers. And I have to add how sweet it is when I get to meet in person a fellow blogger …like you Barbie.

    • So glad you get to tune in! It’s actually NEXT weekend, the 26th and 27th. I am thankful that I got to meet you in person. You are truly a gift.

  6. Hi Barbie! I’m clicking over from the incourage linkup, and love this cozy space you’ve made here. 🙂 I love your words about finding your voice and being vulnerable. I think as women, those are some of the hardest things we can do, and also some of the most important! Thanks for sharing your story and your encouragement.
