  1. I’m looking for a group! :) :) Any takers. And I do not have facebook. I do have Twitter.

  2. I’ll have a Twitter Group if you’d like to check in – #HMCSummerMommas :)

  3. This is my first challenge. I’m on facebook, and would love to join a group.

  4. I’d love to join a group on Facebook if anyone has one!

    I am looking for a group, this is my first time!

  6. I am soooooo excited!!! Can’t wait!

  7. jennifer says:

    I would love to join a group as well. 4 kids under age 5 and a farm keeps me busy all day….I so need this to focus myself for my family.

  8. SO excited to be participating in Hellomornings this summer, I’m starting an Instagram group for this session!!

    I’d love to have you join me if you use the app Instagram, we will use the hashtag #Hellomornings. I’ll be taking 1 picture every morning, I’d love to have the accountability this summer.

    You can find me on Instagram @Happyandersons :)

    • That sounds awesome, Andie!

      • Thanks, I realized I’m on Instagram everyday, so I would love to use hellomornings more. I’m excited about this session!

    • That’s a great idea, Andie! I just might join in, at least from time to time. I’m not always that consistent with Instagram. We actually already follow each other already. I’m @standnconsider :)

    • Great idea, andie! I’m @simplehomemade on IG and I’ll totally join in for #hellomornings on there! :)

      • I haven’t been using instagram much but would love to join in on this as well. I did join a facebook group but wonder about its practicality – the am photos sound great! In any case, please look for me at @trueofheart on Instagram. :)

    • kimberlee says:

      That’s a fun idea! I’m afraid my picture each morning would be of my ceiling fan above my bed. :P following you now!
      kimberlee @javadiva

      • I love this instagram idea. I think images would more peacefully inspire me than logging on to FB and all the energy that invites. I am @ zenkholem. Just signed up fo an IG account :)

    • I would LOVE to be part of the instagram group!


  9. It was a fun chat last night, even though I missed a few things when the screen would freeze up or I last sound. I saw lots of East Coast people, but where are my West Coast peeps at? I’d love to connect with you!

  10. I have started a private facebook group for the summer 2012 Hello Mornings challenge. To be added, leave a comment on the Hello Mornings post at https://www.facebook.com/JoyfulMamaBlog.

  11. Hello! I was the AC for the last HMC group and we decided to stay a group for this summer challenge. Any woman is welcome to join us! We are located in Germany and Africa mostly. We had a great last challenge… and could use new, fresh women to motivate us during this summer break!

    Any questions? Just reply!

    Want to join us? Send an invite to http://www.facebook.com/groups/297721543611467/ Have a good night!

  12. I am joining in for the summer challenge. I am on mountain time. I created this facebook group for mountain time, but anyone would be welcome! https://www.facebook.com/groups/380070365373090/

  13. Lindsey says:

    Looking for a HelloMornings group :) This is going to be my first session. I’m on ther east coast if that makes any difference. Thanks ladies!!!! Can’t wait

    • It only makes a difference if you want to get up at the same time as everyone else. I get up at 6:30 Mountain. I have a Facebook group. See the link above to join.

    • My group has room if you are still looking. I am on central time, and will post around 6:00 am my time, which would be 7:00 your time. Like LaDonna said, it all depends on what you want to get out of it. When Hello Mornings first started on twitter there weren’t even any groups, so #hellomornings tweets were appearing practically all day it seemed! :-) It’s just nice to have like-minded women to cheer you on and pray for you. Here is our group https://www.facebook.com/groups/425488397461442/

  14. Just curious if there is a study that is going to go along with this study?? I know we are always free to do what we want but i LOVE having structure and a plan ahead of time. :) So wanted to check my options out. Thanks!

  15. Celiwe says:

    Anybody else in the Caribbean?

  16. I’ve done this challenge before, some sessions better than others, haha. I skipped the last one, because I bombed out so bad on the fall challenge. But I need to get my mornings back in order!

    I’m not too active on twitter these days (I may clean up my account and fix that), but I’m on facebook! Central time zone, in Houston. I would love to have a group. :-)

    • You’d be welcome to join us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/380070365373090/

    • Deedee, You’re right, some sessions are better than others. Esp if you have small children, it can definitely be a challenging challenge. :p At one point I had to redefine what it meant to be successful. Yes, there were days when I slept in….after a restless night with multiple waking, but was I unsuccessful? Not totally. Did I go to sleep at a decent hour? Was I intentional about setting out all my stuff out to be prepared for a morning in the Word,etc? On those days, a successful morning might look a little different than what I had envision. It might just be a stretch, look over my memory verse for the day, shoot up a quick prayer, play some worship music while I brush my teeth, and make sure I know what’s for dinner. And we can set aside some other time to extend our God time, etc. Sorry to be long-winded…I should actually be getting to bed. It looks like Patti has a group going for Central time zone if you scroll up through the comments. Glad you’ll be joining in.

      • Hopefully I’ll make some progress this time! After struggling so badly in the fall, I knew I just needed a break to deal with the kids, etc. But my mornings are killing me now – rolling out of bed just in time to stuff everyone (myself included) into clothes and out the door? No thanks :-)

        My kids are 3 1/2, and almost 2 – Ironically, I was better at this whole morning thing while i was nursing. Now that they sleep through the night? Mommy can’t get up. Go figure?

  17. Valerie says:

    This 55 year old “Memaw” would like to join you all! I am @valeriec24 on Twitter, valeriecross on Facebook, and on google+

    I have four grandchildren (three boys 9,7, and 5, and one girl, 1 1/2) who usually spend Saturday nights with me and then we go to church together.

    Looking forward to learning.


    • Hey Valerie!

      If you haven’t found a group, you are welcome to join the #HMCsm – HelloMornings Challenge Summer Mommas – twitter group. Just send me a tweet. I’m @SeamsInspired

      Happy Friday!

    • Valerie, You are just a baby to my 106yo granny. :) All is welcome to join. And please share some wisdom with us who have not gone through those years with elementary children or teenagers!

    Come join our Mountain Time facebook group! We’d love to have you join us….


  21. Suzanne says:

    Hi Ladies!
    We have a UK/Western Europe group full of lovely ladies based over this way. A great mix of military and missionary girls from the States, as well as some Brits :-) This will be our third challenge together as a group, with some constant folk as well as some bobbing in and out slightly less frequently.


    I have no idea whether that link will work! But we’re on Facebook – MYM 47, if you search us out :-)

    Very excited for the start of a fresh challenge (I bombed on the Spring one, but am back on the wagon now!)

  22. Hey everyone, There is a LINK-UP in the post above. You will see it right after the Subscriber button where it says LINK TO YOUR GROUP HERE. Thanks!

  23. Julie Reynolds says:

    Our twitter group #HMCCT usually tweets from 6;30a.m to around 8:00 CST so if you need to link up just let us know! I am @ginsamica and Susie is @SusieMM413!

  24. We have a group on Facebook and would love to add some ladies. We are on the east coast and our check-in time is 6:00 am but we are really flexible about that. Here is the link to our group https://www.facebook.com/groups/mym2012/ or you can email me at glellis91@gmail.com.

  25. We have two Facebook Groups (Afrikaans and English) for South African Women. http://www.backtoancientways.blogspot.com/2012/05/hello-mornings-challenge-open-for.html
    South African women are more than welcome to join us.

  26. Anyone interested in an email group can contact me at smjlangley@gmail.com. We have a good group established already but we are open for a few more if interested.


    • Melissa, thank you for the offering of an email group. I’m not on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram (don’t even know what that is!). I’d love to join an email group. :0)

  27. We’d love to have some more folks join us on Twitter. We are pretty much on the West Coast. Our hashtag will be #HMC2 (which is what it was on the most recent challenge). My Twitter is Sara Heer. Let me know. :)

    • Christina says:

      I’d love to join! I’m not very good at twitter but I will give it my best shot. My twitter is cmiranda-marrs. I’m on the WC too.

      • That’ll be great, but I can’t find your Twitter under that name. I’ll look for you in the morning on the #HMC2 hashtag. I’m not sure what WC is, though.

  28. Anyone in the CST zone wanting to get up around 6 am…feel free to join our twitter group: #hmmoms (for hellomornings moms).

  29. Hello, everyone! This is my first challenge and I am looking for a group. I have a facebook and twitter, but I don’t use my twitter. So, if there are any ladies on facebook that wanna group up so to speak, I’d appreciate it! :)

  30. Hi all! I am looking to join a group in the Eastern Time Zone…. can anyone help me out?? Thanks!

  31. Just learning how this all works. I’ll see if I get it.

  32. I signed up, but haven’t gotten the verification email in my inbox or my spam box… what do I do next? I’m a hellomornings newbie.

    • Hi Anne, When did you sign up? If you signed up after Saturday, you just missed the first email that went out. There isn’t a verification email, but you might be getting the 2nd email. If you don’t get anything by the end of the week, contact Kat http://inspiredtoaction.com/contact/ Are you in a group already? There are some groups linked up in the post above. Let me know if you need anything else of have any questions.

  33. Hi Anne, When did you sign up? If you signed up after Saturday, you just missed the first email that went out. There isn’t a verification email, but you might be getting the 2nd email.

    • Hi Joyce, thanks. I did finally get a verification email. But didn’t get the first email you referred to. I checked out the above links for groups, but many of the facebook groups were closed. I’m not on twitter. If there is a group of moms who also work outside of the home, that would be my choice. Right now I’m not in a group.

      • Kari Coppinger says:

        I’ve got a westcoast group that is part SAHM and part Working Mom. Some just work on weekends. If you want to join us, friend me on Facebook and I’ll add you to the group. It’s currently set up as a closed group. We’d love to have you. (My guess is there is only one Kari Coppinger on Facebook. If you need an identifying feature, my profile pic is of a grandma, a mom, and a college student who is me, 20 years ago.)

      • Thanks for following up Kari. Anne, were you able to find Kari’s group? If you signed up, you should get the 2nd email at the end of the week.

      • Yes, I did find Kari’s group. Thanks. I’ll look for the email.

  34. Hi Ladies,
    I am new to all of this. Are there any open groups left that I can join? I’m on the west coast and I have a facebook and twitter.
    I’ve already missed the first few days, yikes! This is going to be a huge change for me! I am a stay at home mom of 3 kiddos: ages 4, 2, and 6 months. Mornings can be bit chaotic, but I am determined to do this! :)

  35. Hi Kat, there are a few people from my email group from 2 sessions ago that are looking for a group. Is it possible for me to add them to the FB group from last session? There are only a few of us doing it again from last time and they’re all happy to add some new people! The FB group is HMC 53. Thanks!

  36. Shane Birkey says:

    I signed up for the Challenge but I failed to join a group. I have Facebook but don’t do Twitter. Is it too late to join a group?

  37. Lisa Salisbury says:

    Darn!! I registered and then I forgot to join a group! I got the Week one email but now I’m not sure what to do. Can I still join a group? I have Facebook but not twitter, but I would be willing to get a twitter account if those are the only available groups. I’m in California. Thanks for your help!

  38. What if I am 90% sure I signed up for a group but I never seem to have gotten contacted by the group leader. Does that mean I missed the registration??

    • Alyssa, do you remember if you signed up for a Facebook or Twitter group? Which timezone?

      • It was a facebook group for a central time zone. I am getting all the emails and even downloaded the study. I think I just didn’t find them on facebook! oops

      • I found your group! Your AC will resend the email with the URL of your fb group’s page. The email will go to whatever address you used to sign up for the challenge. Check your spam too. If you haven’t heard from her in the next day or so, comment back here. Thanks for your patience!

  39. Hi there! I know this is kind of off-topic but I needed
    to ask. Does building a well-established website like yours
    take a lot of work? I am completely new to running a blog but I do write in my journal on a daily basis.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
