Episode 16: Shannan Martin

Shannan Martin joins me for Episode 16 of the Surviving Sarah podcast. If you don't know her already, she writes over at Flowerpatch Farmgirl. Shannan and her husband Cory have 4 kids. God stitched her family together in different ways and from different places. And she has experienced over the last few years what its like to get the life you always dreamed of only to realize through losing it that it wasn't what she truly wanted. 

It didn't take long for us to realize that we are kindred spirits--especially unified in our love for gingham shirts. We could have easily talked for hours, but instead we kept it slightly shorter. We talked about everything from books to netflix to our dream houses to being front yard people and so very much more. Shannan has become a strong voice of influence in a community of people who desire to love their neighbor.

Thank you for listening to my conversation with Shannan. As I was editing, I wrote down so many take aways but one thing that is very timely for me was the idea of how we can all do things scared. I'm in a season currently where I don't know what the next month looks like. When friends ask how i'm feeling, I usually say I'm scared but I'm okay. I feel good. God is a god who sees me. and just because it is scary doesn't mean I shouldn't do it.

I hope you also had a take away from today's episode. I would love to hear from you about. Leave a comment or find me over @sarahwbragg on IG or Twitter.
