Welcome friend! She Speaks is a conversation series that launches with each Ruah book.
For each She Speaks, I ask five women to answer the same three reflective questions about one meaningful theme.
It's an honor for me to share the heartfelt words of these women
as well as to release a new collection of art prints directly inspired by their wisdom.
If you'd like to download a PDF of all of the participants responses, you can do so here.
Grab a cup of coffee or tea, cozy up, and enjoy!
When you read Psalm 139, which word or verse(s) speaks most deeply to you? Why?
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14).
This verse stands out to me, because it is what I need to be reminded of, over and over again. I am made in the image and likeness of a loving God, who knows & cares for me infinitely, but I often overlook this. When I am quick to be critical about my appearance, or wondering if I am worthy of love, this verse is a powerful reminder to give all praise to my Creator.
What does it mean to be “enough”? How does feeling enough or not feeling enough play out in your everyday life? How does it affect your relationship with God?
For me, being enough means resting in the truth that I am loved just as I am. So much of my daily life is spent striving to excel in my different roles: wife, sister, daughter, youth minister, friend, creator. But with the Lord, there is no need to impress, pretend to be someone I’m not, or try to do more in order to gain His favor. He simply asks me to sit with Him and humbly offer what I have.
If you could offer yourself wisdom on this subject what would it be? What does your heart need to hear today?
You are strong. You are good enough. You are loved.
Thank you so much for sharing your heart with us and being a part of She Speaks, Katie!
We are so blessed by your wisdom and your beautiful spirit!
