Loss, disappointment, and fear of the unknown have marked Ellie's journey of wrestling through and coming to firmly believe in God’s faithfulness. Her new album Red Sea Road is clearly written as an act of obedience to sing in the middle of the heartbreak.  I loved the heart behind this album so much I wanted to share Ellie with you guys today!

In this segment we impress one another with our Valentine's Day trivia.  We also recount what it was like when we were dating our husbands. Rebecca admits that it's harder to find money laying on the street than she thought, and Emily admits she is too germaphobic to sit on the comfy chairs at Starbucks.

Also, Rebecca schedules her groceries to be delivered to her house during her talk with Emily just to rub it in that she gets her groceries delivered since Emily is on a budget.  This part is purely conjecture, but I (Emily) am the one writing these words so I'm just gonna pretend that this is a fact.

The episode concludes when our kids interrupt us both at precisely the same time. Enough with the grown up conversation already.

All in all, it's a pretty life-changing conversation that you won't want to miss...

Charity is a wife, adoptive and biological mom and an entrepreneur. She is a spunky, artistic lady who, as she says, is living proof that Christian women do not have to be cookie cutter.  Regardless of your motherhood journey. I am confident you will love her perspective and insight!

We chat about how to be 100% sure of your calling, what Charity has learned about glorifying God in who she IS more than what she DOES, and the criteria she uses to know which of her activities to keep and which to let go.
