A couple months ago, Dayspring’s (in)courage website put out the call to women who were up for leading an online community. There were lists of ideas… community for empty nesters, moms of teens, single women… but none for moms of special-needs kids. I sat there staring at the screen and wondering what in the world kind of sign that was… and then I read the words “is social media one of your love languages?” Fine. Alright. I’m in. But I’m not doing it alone. So I called Kaylee, who I haven’t seen in person since we were both single and singing at Mars Hill. Now we’re married and each have a child with a fat medical file. Kaylee said yes, and here we are.
The complete list of communities HERE. There are online Bible studies, blogfrog groups, facebook groups, high commitment and low committment groups. All kinds of groups. It’s a way for busy gals to plug in, meet some new women, and share their stories. Maybe you need that right now. Maybe you know someone who needs this right now. The first session (for those in a time-sensitive group like a reading study) goes through December 2. After December 2, you can continue or move on. No big.
Kaylee and I are HERE. We named our group (in)Able or (in)Ablers… because our lives often involve the opposite. We want to enable moms… to build them up… to give them (and us) a safe place to talk. The Facebook group is HERE. Send folks if you think it would be a blessing to them.
You’ve always been so supportive of our journey with Rylie. I thought it was appropriate to celebrate this step with you, and to ask for prayers as Kaylee and I lead (?) this group for women who so desperately need to be near other women who understand what it is to live in the world of special-needs. We’re excited and scared!
