Who We Are…

Friends + Working Moms + Anabaptist Christians

We created this space to offer encouragement and inspiration in the midst of the challenges of every day life.

Each week of our chosen series, we share a reflection (comfort) and then a few days later a practice prompt (joy) focused around scripture texts read through an Anabaptist lens.

SPECIAL THANKS to artist Melissa Weaver for our Comfort & Joy logo. You can find about more about her work by following her on Instagram at Lavender and Lemonade Design.
