About the Author
At (in)courage you are welcome to a place of faith, connection and friendship, where you will always find yourself among friends. Founded in 2009 by DaySpring, the Christian products subsidiary of Hallmark Cards, Inc., the vision for (in)courage was to create a new home for the hearts of women, where women take turns pulling up a chair to share their stories of what Jesus looks like in their everyday, gloriously ordinary, and often messy lives. Since then, (in)courage has grown into a vibrant community that reaches thousands of women every day, welcoming them just the way they are, offering a space to breathe, loving support, and resources for meaningful connection.

She has struck a raw nerve in today's society where women are always made to feel "less-than" whatever today's current trend is, and worthiness is tied to the number of followers in social media and the "likes" of our posts. Not only does she identify and resonate with these facets of friendship, but she offers simple suggestions to help us break out of the rut of loneliness, all the while reminding us gently that there is One who will never leave our side, and He might have Kingdom work for us to do that looks different than someone else's. We need to find "...your own soil waiting for seeds and seasons and harvest."
I would of rated it higher had she not frequently used several quotes from one popular Bible study author... Lisa-Jo's writing is strong enough to not have used so many, if any. The other authors quoted were appropriate and brief, and few names were repeated more than once.
Still she captures your heart (that can sit in the pit of your stomach) knowing SHE KNOWS how it feels to sit alone at the lunch table or be excluded from the girl's night out group at church. Her remedies have been tested on her, and she always leaves you feeling like she's rooting you on to be the first to say "hello."
I love too how she places common sense statements and thoughts to remind us that we play an active part in this too—our lives (i.e. Homes, families, children, careers, hair) do not need to be perfect to pursue (and delight in!) friendship, and being too busy can be a curse... "I don't want to be too busy. I want to be available."
I would recommend this book to women who have felt left out, but also to women who are comfortable in life-long relationships, because there's always room for one more at the lunch table...and you are probably unaware how your really good circle of friends could reach out a little farther and do some serious Kingdom blessing. We all have room to learn to love like Jesus loves and be the friend to others that He is to us.
I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion in review.
All quotes by Lisa-Jo Baker.
