HTB #005 – Blogging and Community – An Interview with Kristen Strong

She always has a smile for everyone. I’ve met few people as friendly and warm as Kristen Strong. Maybe it has something to do with her “always meeting new people” military life, or maybe God just gave her a little extra love to share.


Whatever the reason, Kristen is like a one woman welcome party. No matter how awkward or wallflower-ish you feel at an event, strike up a conversation with Kristen and you’ll feel right at home.

This sense of community permeates everything Kristen does online. She writes often about finding community, she is a core part of the (in)Courage community and she has a heart to encourage wives, moms and particularly military wives and moms.

Join us today as we chat about her blogging journey and how blogging community can become real community.
