It’s episode 78 and my guest is Valerie Woerner. I remember ‘meeting’ Val through a Direct Message on Instagram a few years ago. Val has a heart for women to know God’s truth, and she is so relatable and real in her faith.  Today on the podcast, Val and I talk about her new book that is coming out April 9, which is next week! I am reading it and let me just tell you, I have underlined so much of it; I‘m like Val, you are writing about me! I have followed along with her since first meeting on instagram and have since been able to interview her along with her twin sister about their God stories. If you missed hearing the episode they were on, check out their episodes,  46 and 47. 

Check out the show notes at wrenrobbins.com/podcast to get the links mentioned. 

LIKE the podcast? Would love to hear about it on an iTunes review!

My goal here on the podcast is to encourage you in the stories I share, to share helpful content such as books, and podcasts, and products that have helped me, and I want to be able to share that with as many women as I can. In order to do that, Apple podcast reviews help in such a big way! Here’s how you enter the giveaway. All you have to do is go to the podcast app on your phone, search for the Friends of a Feather podcast, scroll until you see the headings Ratings & Reviews and click Write a Review. I would love for you to tap 5 stars, type a sentence or two about what you love about listening to the podcast. Screen shot your review and email or direct message it to me! That’s it! But, what if you are saying, ‘wait, Wren I’ve already left a review on the podcast?' I would first say Thank you!

Let’s get to today’s episode! It’s episode 76 and my guest is Jessica Thompson. Jessica is a sunny California resident, a wife, mom, writer, author, podcaster, and frequent guest speaker. Jessica has written books about exploring and infusing your relationships with grace and the love of Jesus. She has also coauthored books with her mother Elyse Fitzpatrick including the book I recently read, Give Them Grace. Jessica and I chat about a conversation she overheard from her son and his friends that focused her attention to write the book, tips for how to integrate gospel conversations with your kids, and an acrostic that can help you in beginning these conversations. Jessica was so fun to interview, is an excellent speaker, and I know this will be a very helpful episode for all of us.

This episode, ya'll.  My friend, Holly sent me a message me one day and said, "Wren. You have got to hear Jess’s story." After Jess had spoken at a Veterans Day event, Holly immediately went up to encourage her.  Holly connected Jess and myself and I’m so grateful for Holly knowing what an impact Jess will make, and that she has been an encouragement for Jess to share. Jess has only spoken in public a few other times and I’m so grateful she entrusted me in sharing her story with you today.

Jess takes me back to her life of searching for her identity as a young preteen girl, and how she kept coming up feeling empty throughout her life. One morning, after putting her five month old baby girl in her swing for a nap, Jess was devastated with a knock on the door with the news that her first husband, Tell had been killed in action while he was stationed in Iraq. God used a sympathy card filled with verses from a friend she hardly knew that drew Jess to God’s word. In her desperation, Jess found a Bible in her home and dove in head first into reading the scriptures. In this episode you will hear how Jess came to faith in Christ after visiting with a friend at his church. This friend eventually became her husband, a man who passionately loved God and those around him. 

This is what Jess said about her story. “Today, I am a mess. But, oh the treasure of Christ. I am seen…a life of feeling unseen and bitter about it. So bitter. Now, God reminds me daily to Whom I belong and there is redemption. There is a breaking of the chain of misaffection and misplaced identity. And, I hope to share that with other women.”

Ya’ll Jess is using all of her story to glorify Him. And, I’m so grateful. I pray you will walk away encouraged, feeling seen and loved by God, and praising God who redeems us. 

All of the links and things Jess and I talked about will be in the show notes below. Ok, One more thing! If you were encouraged by what you heard today, I would love for you to forward this episode on to a friend! I think that we are all better together and today is the perfect time to give that friend in mind some encouragement.

Hey friends!

Let’s get to today’s episode! I recently heard about Annie Pajcic.   She’s a wife, a mom of 4, and an amazing artist. She uses her creativity to teach women, teens and tweens about Jesus. We found each other through a friends’ recent podcast episode and we had the best time talking. We chat about so many things, but one surprising event changed her life forever. She lost her best friend in a boating accident on her 17th birthday. God used this tragic accident to move in Annie’ life from a worldly perspective to a life of passion to know the Lord and encourage others to do the same.

Embracing her background in youth ministry and the arts, she founded ThouArtExalted. it combines the study of God’s Word with Annie’s passion for the arts. With 1 Chronicles 29:11 as a guide, ThouArtExalted provides art-based Bible studies, free devotions, speaking events, art camps, conferences, and online resources to help women, teens, and tweens deepen a relationship with Jesus. You will be encouraged how walking through hard and joy filled times will increase your faith and get you excited about your walk with Jesus.

Hey friends I am Wren and I want to welcome you to the Friends of a Feather Podcast!  A podcast in which you will walk away encouraged by hearing God stories from my friends that I share! Every time you download an episode, I want you to feel seen by God, to feel encouraged in your daily life, and be spurred on to honor Him with the gifts and talents He has given you.  If this is the first time you’ve tuned in or if you’ve been joining in for a while, you are welcome here, friend!

So many new things happening here at the podcast that I’m so thrilled about! One of which is that We launched my new web site, wrenrobbins.com!  I really wanted to have a landing spot where I could share more content with you guys:

I would love for you to go check the web site out, go ahead and sign up for the Friends of a Feather mailing list so you can start getting emails that encourage, and give you resources I have used and love, and perhaps a discount code here and there from my favorite companies! As a thank you for you for signing up to receive the newsletter, you will get a free download of one of my favorite verses directly in your inbox after subscribing! 

Ok!  Let’s get to today’s episode! 

Today’s episode is with my guest Michele Dyer.  Michele is a wife, mom to 2 boys, a Christian Leadership Coach and a Certified Behavior Specialist. Michele loves discovering new ways to help others identify their life’s calling and mission. 

Michele also cherishes her role as wife and mom. She and her husband John have been married since 1997, they have two boys, Alec and Caedon. Though she’s about to be an empty-nester, she’s about to figure this "parenting thing" out, and to help other mom’s “crack the code” of parenting each child according to their natural bent.  After our conversation, I told Michele she needed to write a book on parenting!  Such wisdom she gives in this episode! 

I am thrilled to have Michele join me as my guest today because we dive into two things I’m passionate about: encouraging women to discover the talents God has gifted them with, to put them into practice and how we can use personality tests as a tool in doing so. 

 You may be an Enneagram enthusiast or you may be just shaking your head, but I promise, there is something for everyone in this episode! You will learn so much about parenting, how the Enneagram personality point system can help you identifty your strengths and how God can walk with you through your weaknesses, how we can use personality tests in marriage, so much more!   I enjoyed our conversation so much and I know you will too!

Hey friends! I am Wren and I want to welcome you to the friends of a feather podcast!  A podcast in which you will walk away encouraged by hearing God stories from my friends that I share! Each week, I chat with a friend who has a story to tell, a dream she is pursuing, or a passion to share with you.  If this is the first time you’ve tuned in or if you’ve been joining in for a while, I am so glad you are here! 

Today’s episode is with my guest Nicole Cole.  Nicole is a wife, mom, lifestyle blogger, photographer, and co-shop owner. Nicole has creativity oozing out of her and she’s just the cutest thing, too.

I met Nicole through a mutual friend (thanks, Courtney!) at the Story & Soul Weekend. We were signed up to go to one of the same break out sessions and as we walked up the stairs and into the room, I asked Nicole about her story.  She began to share with me with such ease and grace about how the Lord brought her through a season of waiting while they desired to grow their family.  Nicole and her husband, Tyler walked through a failed adoption that was so devastating to them but they believe that each and every day was completely ordained by Him.  By grace alone, they are now the parents of not one... but TWO children.  Their sweet Campbell came home to them via adoption in late October 2016 and their Crawford girl was born in January of 2017. Yes, you did the math right.  She has 2 two year olds!!  She is able to stay home with them and she also does some photography work on the side.  Her desire is to continually point to the faithfulness and goodness of Jesus.   As you read her words, it is her desire that you would see Jesus and that you would boldly choose to follow Him in joyful obedience. Ya’ll, she’s the real deal.  Nicole is also passionate about Biblical Literacy.  Toward the end of our conversation, she gives us some ideas and practical resources for that and you will want to stay tuned in for those!  Especially the FREE resource she mentions!  Ok, so here’s my conversation with Nicole!

Hey friends and welcome to the Friends of a Feather Podcast!  A podcast in which you will walk away encouraged by hearing my friends stories that I share!  I am Wren and if this is the first time you’ve tuned in or if you’ve been joining in for a while, I am so glad you are here!

Let’s get to todays episode with my guest Bailey T. Hurley. Bailey is a  wife to Tim, mom to Hunter and a little girl on the way. She’s an avid reader, a community-builder, blogger, writer, and speaker in the Denver area.  Bailey invites women to creatively build rooted community in their corner of the world.  In this episode we talk about being a community builder, tips on being a great friend, how she does that practically.  I also ask her about this quote she wrote about in an article in the Dearly magazine,  Bailey said, “Truly, every woman is a community-builder, but she just needs to be empowered to make some friendship moves with the resources and talents she already has.”  Goodness I love that. 

Bailey has the sweetest soul and motivates me to be more intentional with those around me.  She uses her gifts by being an encouraging bright light andher smile is contagious. We just had the best time together! I'm sure if I lived in Denver we would be the best of friends:)
