Community

Pin It Now!

One of my absolute, hands down favorite things about blogging is the community. I love interacting with other bloggers, having real life conversations via twitter, or sending and receiving genuine emails. It's what makes sharing your heart for all the world to see on a daily basis worth it. 

I can't tell you how many wonderful ideas I've learned from you all, how often some of your posts have stuck with me, how I've found such great advice, how I've been inspired, or how you've left me longing to bring my real life friendships to a better place.

My prayer for myself {albeit selfish} is that God would bring real, genuine friends into my life. Friends that challenge me, inspire me, motivate me, and hold me accountable. I am blessed beyond words to have some wonderful women in my life who are all those things to me. Sometimes I just want more.

I read a tweet earlier this week that blew me away. Here's what it said:  

Amazing coffee and Godly chat with some sweet ladies this morning. We wrote down our fears and tied them to balloons. Today we released our fears and it felt SO good. #friends #God #thankful #fearnomore. 

How amazing is that? I want that. So guess what? I am meeting up with two of my sweet friends at Starbucks for some much needed girl chat and coffee. We are going to share our fears, write them down, and release them. Let. them. go. I am so exited to share this with them and watch what takes place as we release them.

This is why community means so much to me. We have so much we can learn from each other.

  4. This is such a wonderful post! I could not agree with you more! Despite being connected through the internet, I feel as though I have learned to love my blogger friends just as much as I have friends I've known my entire life. I am loving your blog and all that it brings to my little neck of the woods! http://lovelaughterhappyeverafter.blogspot.com

  6. This is a great post. I absolutely love the dear friends that I can share my fears and failures with, who can lift me up in prayer and I do the same for them. It really is a blessing. Thanks for sharing!

  7. You're so right about this. I find it hard to find real, true and genuine friendships with other women. It's something I'm praying for!

  9. Hi Brittany! I just found your blog via CaseyLeigh and was so struck by this post. I have a huge heart for community too. It is one of the main reasons I created my blog! I is nice to "meet" you.

  10. I don't think you're praying a selfish prayer at all! I think it's on God's heart to give us good, faithful friends who continually point us back to Him and build us into stronger people for His kingdom. His heart is for community, and I think it's chasing His heart to be praying that He would bestow that on you.
