  1. I love it when Elisa is your guest. I am always inspired after listening to your conversations and wish you’d have her one even more!

  2. What was the name of the book that Elisa mentioned on this podcast- I forgot to write it down :)

    I’m not a mom, but this speaks to me – mostly because I’m *not* a mom. I’ll be 23 in about a month, but so many of my friends my age or younger than me are already married and/or have kids – I remember my middle school dreams of getting married at 18 and having kid #12 before turning 30. Sometimes I wonder if there’s something wrong with me because I’m not even engaged yet, or looking at getting engaged any time soon. Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever be a mom. But the story of the boy pacing himself in the race reminds me not to look to what other people do, but pace myself based on my life circumstances and trust God to do the rest. Thanks for your blog – and for sharing it, even with us non-moms! 😉

    • I grew up in a town where everyone got married after highschool or college. I didn’t meet my husband until I was 30. We got married 9 months after we met and now, five years later, we have a 2 year old and 6 month old. Our story is beautiful, my husband is amazing and I wouldn’t change anything!!! But my 20s we’re hard because waiting for him and waiting on God was hard….but worth it! Be encouraged!! God’s timing is ALWAYS perfect….though it doesn’t make life or the waiting easy;)

  4. This has to be one of the best podcasts you’ve done!! It was like I wanted to write down your quotes every few minutes!!! Thank you for discussing this topic!!


  5. I loved this discussion. I’ll have to listen again for sure. I felt God stirring so much in me. Thank you for continuing to encourage us to grow and listen to God.


  6. Holy cow. Hit me between the eyes. Thank you so much!!

    Awesome podcast! What was the title of the book Elisa was talking about with regard to her daughter in the end? Thanks!

  8. A little bit late, but I was looking for the book too. It’s “Disciplines of the Beautiful Woman” by Anne Ortlund. Great podcast – Thanks Kat and Elisa!
