When You Need a Real Life Friend

Today, I had a medical procedure that caused me immense anxiety.  I asked for prayer on Facebook and was touched by all those that responded.  But, I needed more than the reassurance that someone, somewhere was praying for me.  I needed someone to look me in the eye, tell me to calm myself down and to pray with me and over me.  So, I drove to a dear friends house and she did just that.  And, it helped.

In real life friendships are invaluable.  We are designed to need each other, to crave community.

I am beyond blessed by the women God has brought my way over the years that have spoken truth into my life, lifted me up when I was down and encouraged me to let loose and just laugh sometimes {something I wouldn’t do without prompting}.

That is why I am excited to host an (in)RL get together this April. I hosted one last year and walked away refreshed.  This year, I am stretching my comfort zone and hosting it in my home rather than the cafe room at my church. There is little more vulnerable than opening your home and little more intimate.  Coffee, chocolate, conversation and the (in)courage-ment of the amazing webcasts that (in)courage has lined up for attendees will add up to a really fun day!
