Hi friends!

I hope you are enjoyng some spots of goodness and beauty in this weird time we all find ourselves living in. One spot for me has been the face-to-face connection (via technology) that has seen a spike due to everyone being quarantined. For example, I attended a theology class yesterday for my undergrad program and was able to “meet” a handful of fellow students that I’ve studied alongside for a few years now but had yet (until yesterday!) seen their faces and heard their voices. It’s a small thing, but it brings me joy nonetheless.

In the spirit of silver linings, I want to invite you to my first-ever Book Club. That’s right…we’re gonna read and chat and do it all from our home in our pj’s!

I’m excited to announce that our first book pick is Lisa Whittle’s new release, “Jesus Over Everything.” I’m already loving this book and I think you will too. Lisa’s writing is full of deep, scripture-rooted truth, yet told in a super-relatable style. You’ll love hearing about how (and why!) she didn’t shop for a year. FOR A YEAR, YALL. Get the book here!

And then this Monday (March 30th) at 7pm cst we will meet together to discuss what we’ve read. If you are planning to attend, shoot me a quick email and let me know. I’ll be sending out the private Zoom link this weekend.

I hope you join us!

The storm has claimed 22 lives at the time of publishing, but rescue workers are still out collecting information as they begin the long process of clean up. Our old neighborhood of East Nashville (pictured above) incurred a lot of damage–to friend’s homes, businesses, and cherished local spots.

romans 1 called to belong

When I decided to go back to school in my 30’s, I was (blissfully) unaware of how hard it would be…how the crunch of learning how to learn again would feel a lot like getting back on the treadmill after being out of shape for years. But just like we get pumped at the start of a new year to join a gym and get healthy, I was excited about the adventure ahead and ready to buy all the books and get going.
