    Hello there, friends! Welcome to your one-stop shop for getting started and navigating around The First Love ClubHouse! Take a few minutes to read through this page, then get out there and explore this wonderful little corner of the internet!

    Please take a few minutes to review The ClubHouse guidelines... even if you've been a member here for awhile, it's good to have a refresher now and then. Thank you for helping to make The ClubHouse a positive and safe place for everyone!

    Are you a returning member of The ClubHouse? Take a peek at the items in TEAL -- we would love your help in these areas! 


    • Welcome! Start Here: Welcome, friend! You're already here! This page briefly describes The ClubHouse activities, spaces, and places, and gives you a general outline of how to get around here. 
    • Fall Roadmap: Remember those huge maps we used for road trips that were impossible to re-fold? Have no fear, this page is way easier than that! The roadmap contains a brief overview of updates we've made to The ClubHouse for this season, so take a look and see what's coming your way!
    • Icons: Those cutie little pictures living on our homepage? Go ahead, click on them! Each one is a shortcut and will whisk you away to different locations around The ClubHouse. We'll just touch on a few of them here...

        • SOMEONE MAY HAVE HAD THE SAME QUESTION AS YOU AND RECEIVED AN ANSWER... Check the FAQs before posting your question. (Please do not send us an email with a general question.)
        • However... if your question is urgent or specific to you, go ahead and email us at: KeepReading@TheFirstLoveClub.com
        • To summarize:
          • If you have a question on how to change the credit card you're using for payment, wonder how to mark a forum as read, curious about where to find your printables >> this is FAQ territory.
          • If you have a question about your sticker order >>, email us, friend! We want to help you! 
    • Mailbox: Summer: Everyone loves Happy Mail! Cori will drop printables, reminders, videos, and messages into your mailbox throughout the season, so be sure to check it often!
      • A REMINDER: the only printables that show up in your mailbox are the ones that are for general ClubHouse use. Printables that are specific to challenges or activities will find their home in the forum belonging to that challenge. Hopefully, this will cut down on any confusion about where to track things down, and will easily ensure that they carry forward from one season to the next.

    • The Cozy Corner: Playlists and videos to listen to during your Bible time or to play in the background at home or on the go.
