Community


A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about community. I've come to realize just how important it is for all of us to live within a community; to be held accountable and to have people who will walk through the hard times with us.

This was the quote I used on that post which now hangs on my wall as a reminder that getting through life is about doing this together; hand in hand.

"You can't do it alone, as you navigate through the rest of your life be open to collaboration. Other people and other peoples ideas are often better than your own. Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you. Spend a lot of time with them and it will change your life. No one is here today because they did it on their own."



So every Thursday, I'm going to have a link up, where we can come together and create community. Feel free to share posts that reveal bits of your heart, or perhaps your "about me" section so that we can all get to know one another better.

Check out the person who links up before and after you, follow their blog, and make some new friends!

  2. this is a great idea! our church is big on living within a community. and its important to surround yourself with people that care more about your character then your comfort ... thus challenging us to make better choices and be a better version of ourselves.

  4. Wonderful idea!! I've found a fabulous community here in small town Texas - both local folk in general and other Mommas! I never realized it would feel so great to belong - Yes, BELONG! - to a place like this! My post is a great example of this! Thanks for creating the link up:)
