Tribe Necklace GIVEAWAY

Tribe Necklace GIVEAWAY





I'd say the best advice I got when I started my blog was from Bryce Eldridge and it was this, "Take care of your readers."

I think about that advice when I'm choosing content to share with you. I think about that, about you before posting anything. 

I like to offer encouragement, because I know what it's like to need loads of it. I know what it's like to feel stuck in the daily grind of tedious, monotonous routines and overwhelmed by tasks and overtaken with worry. It happens to the best of us. So when I talk to you, it's with that in mind.

I want you to know that I am mindful that when I land in your inboxes, or appear on your newsfeed, I might catch you when you are not feeling so fancy and well put together. When in fact some days, you might feel frenzied, hurried, hurt, and perhaps even sometimes, hopeless and spiraling. (Been there too! 💁🏼)

In fact, the very first podcast I guest- recorded for last week was for a series titled "Healing A Train Wreck Marriage"- more about that later! 

Although this all started for me in brokenness, an important thing I learned is not wallow there.

We all ebb and flow in seasons. I hope I find you on a mountaintop today, but if this lands to you in a low point, that's when we need each other the most. That's when I really realize what an honor it is to get to meet you here week after week. 

If you've followed me for a while, you know I started building this blog when I signed my contract for my first book. If you've followed me for long, you'll know it was a terrifying journey.  

It's my usual nature to be shy and reserved, not so….public and definitely makes me squirm a little to ask you to be my virtual friend, to meet you in your inboxes and interrupt your Monday morning scrolling, but you know... 

It's also kinda become my favorite time of the week to meet you here. You, you have made this book launch season a journey I can't quite even find words to describe. Thank you for being here. For showing up. For becoming my tribe this year.  

NOW who's ready for some GIVEAWAY fun?

Let's just use the ole' Like & Share system, shall we? Know someone who you think might enjoy joining our tribe? Tag them below! 

I'll pick the winner Wednesday, so your tribe necklace should arrive to you right in time for Mother's Day! 

My book, A Fierce Love is releasing next month! Help me spread the word! 

In the midst of finding the end of my rope, I kept thinking, THERE HAS TO BE MORE THAN THIS! 

Do you ever wonder that? Do you ever need to know that there is hope, true life-changing hope even for the darkest of seasons?

Guess what? Me too
