Faith Let's Go There Lifestyle Mindfulness Unmasked

Let’s Go There: Getting Real with Katie & Rachael

The other day, I was having a pretty rough go-of-it. 

My insides were a mixed bag of emotions: 

  • COVID-blues
  • “I feel so insignificant” insecurities
  • “Will things ever get better again?” discouragement
  • And lots of other scribbly feelings

Can you feel me?

Reaching Out For Help & Getting Real with a Friend

To help fight off the downward spiral, I decided to call my soul sister and writer friend, Katie Kibbe. As it turns out, she was in a rough patch, too.

As we chatted about our messy insides, something amazing happened: our emotional burdens were lifted.

Getting real with someone who truly listens, honestly cares, and is able to express, “I hear ya, Friend” is so profoundly encouraging and freeing.

I am so blessed to have a Katie (and other “Katie’s”) I can turn to when I’m in a hard place.

But not all of us have a Katie. 

Not all of us have friends we can turn to to be completely honest and unfiltered with about “all the things.” Especially those “real” things that aren’t always quite so pretty.

Well, Katie and I got to talking…and we thought it would be SO cool to create a space where we could be those kinds of friends for you.

Let’s Go There: Getting Real with Katie & Rachael

Starting next week Friday (August 28th @ 11AM PST / 2PM EST), Katie and I are going LIVE on Instagram and Facebook for our very first (of hopefully many) “Let’s Go There” unmasked chats.
