Join the GrowingSlower Community Chat!
Reclaiming a space on the internet (free from ads and algorithms) for real moms to connect, encourage one another, and be reminded that we’re not alone.
We’re enjoying a relaxed holiday weekend at home with lots of books, movies, snuggles, and hot chocolate. My kind of day!
But I wanted to pop into your inbox today to announce a brand new feature of GrowingSlower: our private, subscriber-only community, made possible by Substack’s new chat feature.
This is where we get to reclaim a space on the internet (free from ads and algorithms) to connect as our whole, tender, human selves.
To be reminded that we’re not alone.
And to encourage and equip one another in our faith, work, health, creativity, purpose, motherhood, marriage, time management, and finances.
I’ll post short prompts, thoughts, and updates every other week to start, and you can jump into the discussion.
To join our chat, you’ll need to download the Substack app (messages are sent via the app, not email). Turn on push notifications so you don’t miss a chance to join the conversation as it happens.
How to get started
Download the Substack app (if you haven’t already) by clicking this link or the button below. Chat is only on iOS for now, but chat is coming to the Android app soon.
Open the Substack app and tap the Chat icon. It looks like two bubbles in the bottom bar, and you’ll see a row for GrowingSlower inside.
That’s it! Jump into the Introductions thread to say hi, and if you have any questions, check out Substack’s FAQ, send me an email, or comment on this post.
I’ve already started my first chat thread so come on over and introduce yourself!
