Everyone needs beautiful people around them for encouragement, advice, and community. I’ve been blessed with many great companions on this blogging journey. Here are a few of the people that have loved and inspired me at my best and my worst.
Joy Pedrow – JoyPedrow.com
Joy is an incredible woman of God, a voice of her generation. She is leading women (and men) to strengthen their relationship with Jesus by talking about the most painful parts of their stories. Joy inspires me to be brave and vulnerable, to work hard and follow Jesus with all my heart.
Matt Kossler – earlydoiseekyou.com
Matt is the type of man I want to be – perfect in his imperfections, a master at cultivating meaningful relationships, constantly calling life out of young people and discipling them and faithfully choosing to worship. Matt inspires me to put my relationship with Jesus above all else, to wake up daily and spend time developing intimacy with my savior, to be the real, honest version of myself and to embrace the fun and ridiculousness of life.
Kari Smith & Katrina Josephson – Tandem Creative Company
Kari & Katrina are beautiful examples of the person I’ve always wanted to be – fun, heartfelt, adventurous and fearless. Last year they started their own creative company described perfectly here:
We are a creative agency using written and visual storytelling to share your vision. Working alongside you, we’ll capture the character of your company in order to help others connect and respond to it.
The Tandem sisters (a nickname I just made up) were the dreamers and hustle behind the first Recklessly Alive video. They inspire me to tell my whole story with my whole heart, to relax and breath, to plan for rest and adventure, and to chase my big crazy dreams.
Rachelle Rea Cobb – Writer, Blogger, Editor Extraordinaire
Rachelle is an incredible writer and blogger. She is also an amazing editor always catching my many, many grammatical errors (sorry Rachelle) and is just all around a great blogging friend. You can check out all her amazing editing services here. And don’t miss her incredible book, “The Sound of Diamonds.“
