You might have heard of Jami Nato, and hopefully you are following her over on Instagram!  Her stories are hilarious, but she also goes to the deeper, real places in her feed.    She is seriously one of my favorite people to follow!  So, of course I was thrilled when she agreed to come on 20,000 words and talk with me about her story.

This is real, hard stuff, but as Jami says God had to bring her super low to bring her super close.  The story of her marriage is actually secondary to the story of Jesus redeeming and loving her through something as devastating as a marital affair. I’m amazed at her bravery and willingness to share this story.  Even though this is raw and vulnerable stuff, we also laugh and talk about her eyelashes.  Balance!

This week my guest is Meredith Andrews, she is a singer/songwriter, wife, and mom to 3.  You have probably heard several of Meredith’s songs including “Not for a Moment,” “Spirit of the Living God,” and several of the songs form the Belonging Co’s most recent AMAZING album.  I was surprised to have so much in common with Meredith, and the season she is in spoke so much to the season that so many of us (moms especially) find ourselves in these days.  Juggling the full time job of being a wife and mom, as well as pursuing God sized dreams, but also trusting Him in the waiting.

Meredith talked about her journey to becoming a successful Christian music artist and how she attempts to balance her life with her family and this demanding career.  She shed some serious wisdom about trusting God with your dreams and not forcing and pushing our way through to the outcome we think we want.  I know you will love Meredith and our sincere and authentic conversation!
