About "WE"

 
Women Encouraged
"WE"
Founded: June 2000
 
Its been sixteen years since that first Get Together Saturday!!! WOW! Where did the time go? What an exciting adventure it has been. Your probably wondering exactly what is a Women Encouraged? First of all it is what it says it is....to encourage women.... to be all that God created them to be.
 

Linda Huffman
Founder/Director
 
It has been so much fun being involved with Women Encouraged. I have met so many wonderful, talented, amazing, women who love the Lord. 
 
Are We Stuffy?
 
No way!!!  "WE" have had  so much fun, doing so many different things. You all know that women tend to be..  care givers...people pleasers..others first kind of girls.  Did you know that God did not create us that way? Now don't get me wrong, He did put in us that nurturing thing, but somewhere along the line it tends to get out of balance. We start to put everyone else and everything else to be more important than ourselves. That is not what God had in mind.
 
The "WE" Purpose
 
Because women put everything before themselves, that pretty much eliminates any "me" time. That "me" time is one of the most important times a girl must have. That's where Women Encouraged comes in. On the first Saturday of each month is Get Together Saturday, this is a time when women meet to do all kinds of things, but mostly to take time for themselves, to be encouraged, to have fun, meet and make new friends, and just be yourself. 
 
Why Is This Important?
 
Without realizing it (because we are so busy doing for others) we tend to isolate ourselves. The days come and go, I relate it to the movie Groundhog Day. If you haven't seen that, you need to. It is the same thing day in and day out. We all have responsibilities, so there are certain tasks that have to be done, that's part of life, where it gets out of balance is when there is no time to refresh, no time to meet with others to share and be encouraged. That's when we find ourselves feeling sluggish, lonely, depressed, resentful, angry, short tempered, even physically it will show up.

What Now?
 
October 6,2012
 
On this date I launched "WE" Magazine, an on line magazine for women. I call it a "celebration" of information and encouragement. I hope that is what it is to women. A place to find interesting information that affects our everyday life. Also a place of encouragement, that you feel a little better for just being on the site. I have a lot of exciting stuff planned, it just takes time.
