    Episode 15 - Soul Conversation with Brianna Brown, mama of 3 boys & missionary in Taiwan

    Episode 15 - Soul Conversation with Brianna Brown, mama of 3 boys & missionary in Taiwan

    Enjoy this 26-minute soul conversation with my sweet friend, Brianna Brown, as she shares her real time vulnerability about being a mama of 3 young boys and heading to Taiwan as a missionary family. 

    We laugh about how we met over Instagram and ended up living in the same town. Presently, Brianna finds herself in the "valley of the shadow of death," specifically when it comes to navigating her oldest, adopted son's special needs. We discuss how she is experiencing peace and comfort, how God is cupping her face, and where she is noticing tiny pockets of grace and love in the present.

    Brianna ends our time by reading a poem she wrote about her current pasture season. *cue tears*

    Episode 13 - Soul Conversation with my hubby, Bryan Pogue

    Episode 13 - Soul Conversation with my hubby, Bryan Pogue

    In Ep. 13 I'm sitting down with my hubby, Bryan Pogue, as he shares his (our) journey of intentionally stepping away from vocational church ministry to simply love people, even if we don't get a paycheck from the church.

    Bryan talks about how his identity was wrapped up in what he did for over 15+ years, and his continual discovery that he is not what he does, but whose He is.

    How do you experience sanctuary in the everyday? Inside or outside church walls?

    Episode 11 - Conversation with Rebecca Stilwell, owner of Spring Hill Antique Mall

    Episode 11 - Conversation with Rebecca Stilwell, owner of Spring Hill Antique Mall

    * Be sure to listen to Episode 10, Finding the Answer, before enjoying this soul-nourishing conversation.

    Gosh, what a sweet 30-minute conversation with my friend, Rebecca Stilwell, owner of Spring Hill Antique Mall (SHAM) + Columbia Antique Marketplace. After coming out of a 27-year career in Financial Services, Rebecca shares about how her perfectly planned life took a detour, ten years ago. "One by one, the wheels came off, the track; my dad's health, financial service was in a hard time, life just got messy." She shares about her mom's encouragement that God was not wringing His hands over her situation. That mattered. Then her dad, in the latter stages of Alzheimer's said, "It's going to be okay." That mattered, too.

    Presently, Rebecca most resonates with Psalm 23: 1... "I lack for nothing." We talk about how humility has changed her for the better, what she wishes she would've done differently in parenting, and her wisdom nuggets from 58 years of life and faith experiences.

    Rebecca tells us about how she became the owner of a 1958 former-gymnasium-turned-antique mall, and then, two weeks later, her dad passed away. The antique mall vendors rallied around her and allowed her time to grieve.

    "That's how the SHAM is. It's a pasture. A haven. A sweet place with great people." - Rebecca Stilwell
    The SHAM is what connected Rebecca and I. It's where I held Pasture Experience local gatherings before I chose to shrink the size and host weekend retreats in our home.



    Show Notes:

    Rebecca Stilwell's Wisdom Nuggets:

    1. The main thing is to keep the main thing, the main thing. Don't get too busy.
    2. Humility is important. Pray for it.
    3. Stay in the Word. Search it intently. Seek diligently.

Melsymi ,

This podcast offers so much grace!

I love how Bekah invites and opens up space and grace to be yourself. To notice. To be ok with sitting in stillness.
The repeat of “you’re ok” and what you DO does not determine your worth.
Thank you for your beautiful words.

Briannna Brown ,

A place to be known

This podcast is a safe place. This is a pasture space where I can come as I am and be accepted with open arms. Thank you Bekah for pouring your heart and soul into those like us who feel known and love by our Savior as we experience Him through this podcast.

A soul gift

Bekah is the real deal. Her words and presence (which you get to feel when listening) are a true gift to the soul. Carve out time in your day for this podcast—it will bless you.
