Episode 437: Ann Voskamp on What Sabbath Looks Like for Her, and Relying on the Provision of the Lord

I just love Ann Voskamp. She’s a dear friend, the kindest voice, and she teaches us to be brave! We talked about the sovereignty of God, what a day of rest looks like for us, and communion with other people. Also…you know it wouldn’t be a proper conversation with Ann if it didn’t include chatting about farm life and what books we’re both currently reading! Ann’s first children’s book, Your Brave Song, is so special. And what a great Valentine’s Day gift for the miniBFFs in your life!

(Also, be sure to listen all the way through to the end of this episode when one of you had a very fun surprise for me! Spoiler alert…I love parades!!)
