Registration is now open for (in)courage’s annual (in)RL webcast. I’m thrilled to be hosting an event in Macon, Georgia, so if you’re nearby, consider this my personal invitation to join me!
If you’re familiar with it, you know you’re in for a treat; if it’s new to you, in a nutshell, it’s a women’s conference that comes to you, virtually, bringing with it the heart of community. Watch at home on Friday, April 25th and join a local Meetup to connect and watch the webcast together on Saturday, April 26.
Everyone who registers TODAY only will be entered to win:
– 1 set of tickets to Allume – in Greenville, SC (for you and a friend)*
– 2 sets of tickets to the sold out IF Gathering in Austin, TX (for two people and their friends).*
Registration is free and each year these gatherings are intended to initiate new and expand existing friendships, building much-needed community among women.
Something new I LOVE this year? Giv(in)g Opportunities!
Rather than require a registration fee to participate (and trust me, there are real costs to put on a conference like this…), the (in)RL team is inviting you to join one of six important causes. I’m familiar with all of them and, with heartfelt enthusiasm and conviction, offer my support to each. So much so, even if you aren’t able to take part in an (in)RL event this year (say it ain’t so!), I hope you’ll read their stories and invest in the project(s) that prick your conscience.
So, consider this a personal invitation to register right away for the (in)RL Meet-up closest to you (and if you live in the middle-Georgia area, come to mine!). If you don’t see a location listed in your area, be brave–sign up to host one yourself!
What to do to register:
1. First, register for (in)RL on the (in)courage site.
2. Then, identify the Meet-up you’d like to attend (or set up a page to host one in your hometown).
3. Watch this fun trailer to learn a little more.
Your turn: Have you attended an (in)RL event before? Please share your experience in comments. Will this be the first year you’ll attend? What do you hope to gain? I’m interested in both perspectives.

My heart just may burst at how much I want to see strong communities of supportive women in the Lord. Oh I pray this for our community so often!!! When I see it start to happen it fizzles. If this could do that I would be so very happy!!!
It CAN happen but it comes with a cost…your time and intention. But isn’t it worth it? Aren’t real friendships WORTH IT? I’ve had seasons of plenty…and seasons of void. The latter is painful and sometimes it feels like there’ll never be an end (no matter what you do).
I loved our gathering last year; the worst part was I was between two places and couldn’t keep our momentum going based on an upcoming move :/. This year, I hope to change that :).
I’m encouraging YOU to be brave, friend. xo
Admired your boldness to go beyond in this way. We DO so need other women and it is often hard ot find the time or the women for that to happen well.
