Hi Kristen, I just read your post on (in)courage, and wanted to contact you right away! All week, blogland seems to be inundated with posts about girls in lonely seasons of friendship, and I so appreciated this reminder! I am gathering together a week long (I think!) series on friendship over at my blog and wondered if you’d be interested in being a part of it? To encourage other women, share your story, or maybe even just quote from your article? You can e-mail me at : windy-poplars(AT)juno(DOT)com. I’ll look forward to hearing from you!
