Great devotional

The day this book arrived I read the first chapter to a friend while she drove. She said it was just what she needed that day. I have read a few more chapters and I am challenged to improve my closeness to God.

Must read for all women!

I deeply struggle to strike up a conversation and at times even struggle to add to a conversation. Sometimes it is out of fear of not saying the right thing or fear of sounding stupid. And sometimes it's because I have nothing to say and don't know how to really create a conversation. I deeply crave connecting with women. I think this is what God intended, for women to connect with one another, share with one another, encourage one another, and pray with one another. Yet, it just doesn't come easy for me. {in}Courage has a brand new book, available today, called Craving Connection: 30 Challenges for Real Life Engagement. Craving Connection is written by 30 different women who share their real life stories, practical tips and encouraging words on connecting with each other. Jennifer Ueckert says, "We are at our best when we are walking together on this journey." Holley Gerth says, "We can't take the tension of life all by ourselves. We need to share it with others or we'll be pulled to pieces." And Lisa-Jo Baker reminds us that our story might just be someone else's life preserver. One thing I deeply love about Craving Connection is each chapter comes with an engaging challenge, connection questions and a connection challenge. These precious ladies know how to get right into our hearts and draw us up and out as we learn to connect. What else I truly love about this book? These 30 women are real women. They aren't experts, counselors or even celebrities. They are real women, real wives, real moms, real sisters, real friends. They are all on this journey right beside us. And here, in this beautiful book, they have shared their own findings to give us hope and encouragement.

A guidebook for all of us looking for connection!

A collection of honest essays by writers like Lisa-Jo Baker, Kris Camealy, Denise Hughes, and Amanda White (along with 26 other incredible women), Craving Connection is a guidebook for all of us desperate for real connection with God, with friends, and within our communities. Each essay ends with a Connection Challenge where we are invited to put our desires into action.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who has wondered how to build connections with others ... and especially for those who have felt rejected or insecure in themselves and their ability to relate and engage with other women.

{Note: I received a free copy of this book from Dayspring as an influencer. My recommendation comes with no reservations and no expectation of a favorable review by Dayspring, (in)courage, or any of the writers involved with this project.}

A Book that Empowers Women to Step Out of Isolation and Into Community

God created women with a craving for connection, and this book is a fantastic tool to help us break free from the insecurities that isolate and find courage to embrace community.The format of Craving Connection is perfect for busy women, offering short and engaging story-based devotionals rooted in the life-giving truth of God’s word. Each section includes 10 easy-to-read devotionals, including real-life stories, thought-provoking questions, and a down-to-earth connection challenge. These devotionals take less than 10-minutes to read, and the connection challenges are very doable (it is obvious that they were carefully crafted with introverts and exhausted extroverts in mind). Feelings of isolation and loneliness fade away as you make your way through Craving Connection because these brave women from (in)courage are not afraid to "go there" by shining a light on their own struggles and insecurities. With 29 contributing authors offering a fresh voice and unique prospective on every page, there truly is something for every woman in this beautiful book.
