I sat down to write a post the other week, all about how I wasn’t going to participate in the Nester’s “31 Days” series. I was too busy. I didn’t want to fail and end up with an “18 day” series. There was too much pressure and I didn’t think it was something I should add to my plate right now.
God put an outline for the series on my heart. One that gave me time to prep most of my posts in advance, leave room for the link ups (my “Behind the Scenes” link up here on Tuesdays, and Lisa-Jo‘s “Five Minute Friday” link up on her blog) that I love to do. An outline that ties in with a book that I have on my heart – that I’m frankly confused about and hesitant to begin.
So welcome, friends 🙂 Welcome to my “31 Days of Community” series. I’ll be spending the next 31 days talking specifically about community – from finding it to healing from it and everything in between. And on Tuesday’s I’ll open the doors to this community & invite you to come on in and share your stories. I hope you enjoy and are blessed!

This is gurgling up from the very heart of you! THAT’S why you kinda HAD to choose this topic and take part in the 31 Days challenge; isn’t it AWESOME how the outline came together in your head? So happy you listened to that Holy nudge :).
I’m looking forward to reading along!
This is going to be so good!

LOVE!!! You know what often happens with these 31 days series, right? 😉
Lovely Messes says
I love how it was set in place perfectly for you! Can’t wait to read all about it!
I’m so excited about your series! There are a lot of great series going up; but I, and I’m sure others, are always craving community. Can’t wait for this!
Angi Pratt says
Yay! Exciting! I *just* remembered about Five Minute Friday… Guess I’ll have to think of an awkward story that relates to each prompt… Good thing I have lots to choose from 🙂

I can’t wait! So glad you are doing this and how awesome of God to just set you up like that! I love that!
I’m excited to read all that you have to share on this topic!! I didn’t get to comment, but I really enjoyed and related to what you wrote on your Five Minute Friday post last week.
This is going to be really good, Crystal! Can’t wait to read along. I am still on the fence about the whole #31days deal. Consider the link goes live in a few hours and I still haven’t figured it out, I’m guessing it’s a no for me this year but I’m looking forward to what everyone else brings to this series!

Can’t wait to follow along and see what the Lord has put in your heart 🙂

Oh, Crystal! I just finished my 31 days intro post. Nothing like the last minute prompting of God, is there?!! Can’t wait to follow along. Hope you will find some time to “sit on the porch” with me too. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks for your faithful leadership of the (in)couragers!!
