Guess Who's Guest Posting at (in)Courage!!

I distinctly remember that day, July 2009, sitting in a windowless conference room during She Speaks when a couple of cute young gals named Holly and Stephanie launched a new website for women called (in)Courage. The site was being sponsored by DaySpring, a brand I was already familiar with, and it sounded like a really neat idea.

And then the "call" came. They were looking for writers. And they generously offered anyone in the room the chance to write for (in)Courage--we just needed to contact one of the girls to talk about it further.

I pondered. I hesitated. And in the end, I let my insecurity take over . . . again.

I didn't act on the chance to write regularly for (in)Courage, but recently, when they put out a call for guest posters, you can imagine that I jumped at that one.

And, guys, today is the day! Today I finally have something posted on (in)Courage, and I couldn't be more excited about it.

Please pop over there today and read it. And if you left me a comment over there, I will love you more than the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookies I made yesterday!



  1. Congrats, Shelly, on your post on {in}courage! Interestingly, my friend (& fellow expat in China) Christine posted there earlier this week. It's fun to find two ladies (whose blogs) I read regularly on the same site! Sometimes it really does feel like a small world. Thanks for your encouraging words!


  2. Loved your post and glad to find your blog. Sounds like we both love the "adventure" of following Jesus!
    Love & Blessings from Hong Kong,

  3. Hi Jen! Wow! That is just cool how God brought two blogs together for you. :)

    Thanks, Michelle.

    Kim, I'm so happy to meet you and look forward to getting to know you better too!

  4. I loved your post today - it spoke right into my heart. I too often desire other things before Jesus and want to have Him at the center of my every moment. I'm so glad you decided to write for them :)

    I'll be visiting you again soon!

  5. Congrats on your post. Isn't it wonderful how we get second chances. I am also going to be a guest (On Oct. 2nd) Can't wait. You did a great job!

  6. I will be reading.
    Thanks for sharing.

  7. And we're so delighted to have YOU!!


  8. Loved the post. Love you. Congratulations on being
