Introducing: Just Enough Brave

You know that tingling in your toes, the kind that comes just before you make that introduction, that leap, or that big move? It’s the best mix of fear and bravery -- and really, all you need is just enough brave to step forward. That’s the quiet, confident bravery we’ve come to know and love from Katie Blackburn.

We’ve been fans of Katie Blackburn and her blog, Just Enough Brave, for some time. She writes with the warmth of a best friend, but with the wisdom of a seasoned mentor. Her words are filled with grace and hope, but you won’t find her brushing past the gritty challenges of life. So when her email inquiry landed in our inbox, we immediately replied with YES, and got to work on developing a new logo for Just Enough Brave.

We love the story of how her blog came to be. So much so, we’ll let Katie tell it to you herself.

“About 2 years ago when I started Just Enough Brave, I had 2 babies under 2 and felt totally, completely overwhelmed by the needs in my own home and the chaos of the world we live in outside my home. I was so easily crippled by fear, yet so longing to live a life that wasn’t afraid— a life grounded in the God who says again and again: fear not.

As I started thinking about what I wanted my faith, my family, and my writing to be grounded in, the thought that ‘I only need just enough brave’ came to mind. Just enough. Jesus’ work in the world seemed to me to always happen with just enough faith, just enough disciples, just enough bread and fish… and if I could have just enough brave, I could live out a life boldly for His kingdom.”

Earlier this week, Just Enough Brave celebrated its second birthday, and we feel so honored to have been able to be a small part of what’s happening through the words and stories shared on Katie’s corner of the interwebs. Do yourself a favor today and head on over to Just Enough Brave.
