A few months into the journey, I realized I needed an outlet to share all that God was placing on my heart. I started creating daily memes to share on my personal Instagram account and called them InstaEncouragements. As I shared them on Social Media, some were re-posted by friends and there were lots of likes and positive comments.
Soon after this, it became apparent to me that "InstaEncouragements" needed its own home and branding. The InstaEncouragements Instagram was born. That's where the journey really began. The Instagram was followed by a presence on Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter.
As InstaEncouragements gained followers, more and more people asked to purchase the memes in print form. After several months of prayer, figuring out the logistics, and the best way to proceed, we opened our little Etsy shop.
From the beginning, I've wanted God to make me more like Him and less like me. I also hoped to be an encouragement to others who wanted the same kind of thing in their lives. However, I didn't want to just be an encouragement. I also wanted to equip others so they in turn could be an encouragement too! That's really where my heart is, and that's where the heart of InstaEncouragements lies. I want to be more like Him and less like me, and I want to encourage you and make you an encourager! <— GOALS!
Thanks for reading. I hope you will find something here that will enable you to be an encouragement to someone in your life, and become more like Him at the same time!
While we're on the subject of New Year's resolutions and immersing yourself in Scripture, let me just share with you a few daily devotionals I have enjoyed using.
In the pages of Moments with You, the Raineys offer just what couples need to get started or to continue growing in their quiet times together. These short but poignant biblical devotions are enjoyable and easy to use, providing a daily discussion point, prayer and Scripture reference. Married couples desiring a deeper spiritual connection with God and their spouse will come to treasure their time spent over Moments with You. For married couples of all ages and at all stages of life." -goodreads

Another great devotional, this one for women, is God Hears Her. Don't you just sometimes want to be heard? God hears. Even in His silence, He hears.

I hope these encourage you to be intentional about immersing yourself in Scripture.
