We start the conversation by sharing our stories, usually about the times when it all went wrong.
We are unvarnished and vulnerable, inviting you in to let down your guard, too.
We are all unique; we celebrate that diversity. We hope you feel the freedom to be who you are and share your story with trusted friends you meet on your journey.
We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We’d rather laugh over a glass of wine than cry over a cup of coffee. (Though there’s room for crying, too, when that’s what we need to do.)
We do what we do for a reason—to create a space where women feel comfortable being themselves. Where you don’t feel like you have to fake it.
We hold out hope to women. We know it’s possible for them to dream and grow and change… even if they don’t believe it for themselves.
Women are amazing, powerful, strong, and capable.
Sometimes we need to be reminded.
God is crazy about you.
We want everyone to hear the good news of who God is and how much he loves you.
You were created on purpose for a purpose.
Finding and living out that purpose can change everything.
We’re all in this together.
Authentic relationships are essential to a fulfilling life. You can have relationships that thrive.
You need to take care of yourself.
So you can do all you were created to do. You can’t share what you don’t have.
We would rather share hugs than throw stones.
We won’t all agree on everything but that doesn’t mean we can’t love each other.
We are setting a big table with enough room for you and your people. We will hold your stories with tender hands.
Create events for women.
We travel across the country to meet you where you are. Our events are an open space where women can connect, dream, and grow.
Form a sisterhood.
A tribe of women who are not content with status quo but are willing to work together to make things better. Because it’s not about one of us; it’s about all of us.
The Tour Part of BELONG Tour
A Friday night-Saturday event for women taking place in arenas across the country. The BELONG Team—Jen Hatmaker, Shauna Niequist, Nichole Nordeman, Melinda Doolittle and Deidra Riggs—and special guests invite women from all walks of life into a safe, fun, open space.
There will be plenty of personal stories, music, laughter, and maybe even some tears in this one-of-a-kind event where every woman can find a place to BELONG. See the Tour schedule.
BELONG is For…
BELONG is for every woman—for conservatives and liberals, young and old, married and single, those who go to church and those who don’t, women of every background and race.
We call it BELONG because you do. Your friends do. Your neighbors do. Your colleagues do. We are setting a big table with enough room for you and your people. Those with fragile hearts. Your daughters. Your sisters. Those who are confused or mad, or passionate or scared or . . . you fill in the blank. We will hold your stories with tender hands.
We are women who have struggled and hoped to love God in the midst of life, which can be very, very hard. We are absolutely here for you.
This is where you BELONG.
