  1. Thanks for joining us today, Ivy! I remember when I longed for a community of Christian women and didn’t have one. When we moved to our small town, there was nothing available for Christian women. I checked with every church. So I reached out and started a Bible study. That small group of women has been a balm to my soul.

    1. Thank you, Heather!! I can imagine it would be even more of a challenge, moving to a new town! That’s awesome that you started a study yourself!

  2. This right here (especially the 2nd paragraph).. This is what I have been trying to put into words for the past week. Thank you for sharing. The Hebrews verse was actually running through my mind this morning.

    1. Thanks for reading, Jessica! It’s been eye-opening (and encouraging) to learn how most of us are looking for the same level of community with one another!

  3. Everything here is just spot-on! I know I’ve been feeling like there’s something missing & it’s long-lasting, meaningful relationships with other ladies-in-Christ! Thank you for sharing!

  4. The community is important because we know it was important to Jesus. The body of Christ is all about living in a community. I loved your post and I am thankful for all those God has placed in my path to build community.

  5. Community does require a lot from us: time and vulnerability and energy. But the rewards are usually well-worth it, and far exceed the cost. Praying your community continues to build and thrive!

  6. Thank you Ivy. I thank God for leading me to your website this morning. As I’m reading your blog on women and community, I felt you were talking to me. My husband and I were asked 2 years ago. To take over this church in Florida while we leave in Ny. Before Covid we traveled 2/3 times /month. During that time I started a women ministry. We have bible studies. We get together twice a month to discuss different topics. Till now but on zoom. But I found myself wanting more for these women. Like you said for them to really open up. I’ve prayed about it. And I think you just give me the idea I was looking for. So thank you. I will go and read Titus. Like you said and see how God can lead me to this community. Thanks again
    In Christ

    1. I’m so glad God led you to this post, and in His perfect timing. Thank you for taking the time to share your story and how this post impacted you, Roz. It means a lot to hear from readers like you. I pray that God shows you what you need as you read through Titus.
