Please take a moment to help me out here! I hope you won’t just read today’s post, but I need you to provide me with some helpful information. I’m asking for “readership participation” today! I’ll get to that at the end of the post.
Are you involved with a community of women?
In Sarah’s day (about 2100 years or so B.C.), it was happening around the local well. In my great grandmother’s day it was happening most often in the kitchen, for my mom and her friends it would happen on the telephone. Today it’s happening here. Women are exchanging ideas and experiences. They’re learning from one another as they share their hearts and thoughts—being encouraged and challenged—online!
Through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, your favorite blog or website, you can load up on tons of good resources, learn how to live on a budget, hear a great message, or chat with a friend across the globe. There are definitely limitations on how deeply you can go in a “cyber community” and admittedly there are dangers, but there are also plenty of good opportunities for growth.
One of my favorite things about being in community with women online is I can catch quick glimpses of what God is doing in their lives—even though I may never have the opportunity to meet them here on earth. I may not be able to travel to Poughkeepsie, but I can read an online word from a woman there who is sharing how God is at work in her life and I’m encouraged.
It excites me to see God raising up a host of women who are fierce in their love for Him all across the globe! I love discovering websites that are not only solid doctrinally but also inspire me with a passion to live a more gospel-centered life.
If this website has been an encouragement to you, I hope you’ll leave a comment below and let me know how God is using it in your life.
“So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.” (1 Thess. 5:11)
This is where your participation is needed! If there are particular topics that you’d like for me to address, please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts. It will help me to hear from you.
