3 Day #FosteringFriendships Challenge

Summer provides a lot of opportunities to foster our friendships. The warm weather and long nights allow us to gather after work, get outside on the weekends and enjoy time together. But to nourish and encourage the depth we want in our friendships, we will need to be intentional with our summer fun.

So, I am hosting a three day #fosteringfriendships challenge to provide you with simple and fun ideas that will develop and promote healthy community-building habits.

Join me and other women June 13th-15th as we commit to growing our friendships for the glory of God. We will find new ways to do good together and have meaningful friendship fun. Then, we’ll take a photo and post it on Instagram under the hashtag #fosteringfriendships, sharing how the challenge made a difference in our friendships.

Together we will remind our friends they are valued, loved and known.

Are you with us?


This 3-day challenge has ended. Thanks to all who participated for working to foster their friendships! If you missed this event, you can subscribe to Long Walks, Deep Talks to be in-the loop for the next one!

    That’s a great idea! Life gets fuller and more complicated, especially as we’re raising families and our children grow older. Being intentional is definitely a necessity.

    What a great idea! My husband and I are crazy busy this summer, so we’re trying to be intentional with the free time we have to make sure we’re letting our friends know we love them despite our busy schedule!

    Love this idea! Sometimes friendships can become complacent. We need to continue to lift each other up and share God’s love with each other. Great challenge.
