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 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.

Crystal Stine serves as editor of this (in)courage series. A self-proclaimed “accidental community builder,” Crystal is a coffee & chocolate loving, full-time working mama married to her high-school sweetheart. Crystal is passionate about cultivating a community where faith, fitness, and friendship come together. Author of “Creative Basics: 30 Days to Awesome Social Media Art,” she is a speaker, host of Write 31 Days, and a contributor and Editorial & Marketing Manager at (in)courage. Crystal writes regularly at and offers encouragement on Twitter and Instagram as @crystalstine and lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, Matt, and daughter, Madison.

3.0 out of 5 stars Accessible for Christian women of all life stages, but not too deep in content.
Reviewed in the United States on October 13, 2018
I’ll admit. I didn’t love this book at first. An older sister (50’s) who started discipling me thought that this would be a good book to do together, as she felt that it was very accessible for today’s generation.

The flowery, Instagrammable cover and all the floral prints inside made me feel like I couldn’t take it too seriously. I didn’t think that it would be something that would really challenge and uplift me in my walk.

And I’ll admit. I was wrong. There are some jewels in here. I judged the book too quickly for its cover and pages.

It’s not too meaty and deep theologically, but I like that it is, indeed, accessible for any Christian woman, whether young in her faith or decades into it. You can easily read a chapter a day or spend a week going over one chapter to devote some time to the topic. Some things to note:

* Devotional style: It starts with a personal story, some that more relatable than others depending on the reader’s life (i.e., performance jealousy, insecurity, neediness, etc.). Then it applies Bible verses and truths related to that personal story and connects it to you.
* Friend talk: It reads like a gal pal talking to you over a nice cup of tea.
* Application: This is probably my favorite part. At the end of each chapter are “Connection Questions” to get you to self reflect and a “Connection Challenge” to inspire you to do something. Perfect for small group or a book study, and you all can keep each other accountable (see my photos).
* Split by sections: Comnecting with God, friends and community. I like that it hits the three places where we, as believers, should strive to build bridges that last into eternity.

Some things I didn’t like:
* Although the pages have cute pink floral prints and sketches, I really would have preferred that they kept all the gray out. Every page has a significant amount of gray by the edges that I felt like it would rub off onto my fingers like newspaper (see photos).
* Maybe it’s just the style of (in)courage, but I wish it was spiritually meatier in its content. So far, I feel more like I learned more about the person in the chapter than I did a truth. Although this could be helpful and very friendly for younger believers, anyone wanting a more serious, Bible-centric study or devotional might want to skip this.
