I pray this is the place where you will be encouraged by hearing God stories from my friends that I share.

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! And then I would say, no problem, just screen shot your past review and send it to me! Head to you the Apple Podcast app, Stitcher app or click HERE to write your review.  

Ok. So all who enter can have a chance to win a NEW Val Marie Paper 30 day prayer journal! It’s called A FRESH START FOR MOMS and it hasn’t even been released yet! EEK!!

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.
