CASEY: ON FEELING FORGOTTEN BY GOD + PRESSING IN THROUGH THE WAIT + PRIVATE DOMESTIC ADOPTION
This episode is one for the record books. Casey and I just couldn’t stop chatting—about struggling through infertility, following God through the confusing, changed adoption plans, feeling forgotten by God, private domestic adoption, pressing into God through the wait, praying Hannah’s prayer, miraculous pregnancies, the anxiety of foster care, rock climbing documentaries, and Mumford & Sons. It’s a good one, friends.
• The intro song, The Source, is brought to you by one of the best new worship bands out there, The Evidence. Yes, the frontman is my (talented, brilliant, adorable, Jesus-loving) cousin. No, that's not why I love them.
• Oily mamas, you will absolutely love Casey’s book, The Simple Life of Ollie and Vern. The illustrations are ADORABLE, the hook is super cute, and the characters are multi-cultural. Love.
• Like me+myself+I, Casey reads many books at once. She’s reading and recommends: Rachel Hollis: Girl Wash Your Face, Imperfect Courage: Jessica Honegger, High Performing Habits of Highly Successful People by Brandon Burchard, The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor
• Casey shared her favorite tunes: Sara Bareilles + John Legend: A Safe Place to Land; Mumford + Sons’ new album, Delta; and Youth Revival Acoustic: Only Wanna Sing
