1 Thessalonians 5:11  Encourage one another and build each other up.

Welcome to the Build A Sister Up Blog! 

Each new month, you can look forward to meeting another new Sister here through a fun and insightful interview.  My hope is that you will connect with these amazing women, follow their work, and that they will just be one more person to support you and be a part of your faith community.

We believe in the power of community.  We believe that we are stronger together.  We believe that by linking arms and walking alongside each other, all of our journeys are made better.  That is why we want to walk alongside of you and build you up and encourage you in your life of Faith.

We believe that 1 Thessalonians 5:11 NIV is how community should look!

“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”

All of the women featured here are friends of mine and Sisters.  I’m so excited to be able to connect you to these  women, here, on the Build a Sister Up Blog!

I hope this becomes a place that you come back to often to meet new people, to be inspired, to be built up in your faith, to be encouraged, and to be a part of a community!

1. Can you tell us a little about yourself? I’m a firstborn who married a first born. My God’s grace it’s working out well (and thankfully my hubby is laid back and not bossy like me). Musicals give me life (I’m still not tired of the Hamilton soundtrack). Also to-do lists are my jam. I’m made like Martha and proud of ...
You guys! It’s Spring, finally! Although, as I sit down to type this post there is snow in the forecast for tomorrow. Obviously, it is not very Spring-like here in mid-Missouri yet.

Happy November, friends! Is anyone else amazed that the holiday season is almost here? Time is just zipping by! I won’t complain, though, because November means Thanksgiving and, in my family, Thanksgiving means my Uncle Shorty’s pies. I. CAN’T. WAIT. A new month also means that I get the opportunity ...
