Hey, friend. So blessed to be kicking up the sand on this Kingdom Road together, as we honor His purpose for our lives. I celebrate you today—you encourage and inspire me—and I thank you.
Now that we’re on the fall schedule, we’ll be making a little change—switching the monthly giveaways to the last Thursday of the month, rather than the first. And, today just so happens to be the last Thursday of September!
Another change I’m excited to implement is that—we’ll be highlighting the writing space of the drawing winner each month. Isn’t that fun? And, no worries for past winners–you never know when your number will be drawn again. (That’s why we have more than one gift to choose from, and I hope to add another next year.)
This month’s drawing winner is: Robin! Congratulations, Robin!
Robin is a servant leader with a heart for encouraging, equipping, and empowering women. Her passion is to connect women with their stories and empower them in the process.
Robin says, “If I had to sum up my mission, the force that propels me, it would be this: creating a loving community where women are free to let their lights shine. “ Isn’t that beautiful?
Robin’s online writing home can be found at Robinality. There you’ll also find links to connect with her on social media, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. If you haven’t had a chance to meet Robin on her lovely site, I hope you’ll take some time to visit with her soon.
Thank you, Robin, for being a part of this beautiful community of writers here at #ChasingCommunity.
Let me know whether you’d prefer the insulated mug, or the writing journal and I’ll get it right out to you. May the Lord continue to bless your ministry of words. ♥
Be sure to join us back here next week as we welcome our friend Micah Maddox to the blog. Micah’s first book, Anchored In, just released, and we’re excited to have her guest-posting with us. I know her words will bless.

It’s a casual, pony-tail & sandals environment around here, but a few important reminders:
- Please remember to visit and leave some encouragement for other friends who’ve linked-up today — this is the heart of community & your words of support could be just the thing another friend needs to hear today.
- Please only share like-minded words of spiritual encouragement and insight.
- Please grab the #ChasingCommunity button, or link back here underneath your post. (So others can find us and join the fun too!)
- By linking up & leaving your email address you agree to receive #ChasingCommunity updates.

Thanks for introducing us to Robin, Brenda! I’m going to check out her post. I appreciate your community, friend. (I don’t always link up these days because trying to juggle book-writing with everything else on my plate means I’m having to do less of some things to do more of others!)
