Sometimes you just need to dive into something new. Which is exactly what I'm doing with my new blog series, "Friday Features." See the thing is, I have a lot of talented friends with giftings that really aim to serve. These friends are creatives who pour their hearts into what they do and are working hard to build a clientele, a follower base, or a readership. They are people whose kitchen tables have become their offices. They've traded in their blazers for aprons; their computers for paint. They spend 8 to 5 at their day job and 5 to midnight at their dream job, side job, creative job, or whatever they like to call it. They are writers, calligraphers, artists, teachers, sewers, bloggers, and so much more. And I'm so excited to tell you a little bit about them!
So speaking of diving into something new, my first Friday Feature, Mary Rachel Fenrick, just launched her brand new website for her blog, Finding Freedom. Mary Rachel writes about marriage, motherhood, running marathons, living a healthy lifestyle, and so many other topics. The things I love about Mary Rachel's blog is that she's relatable, honest, encouraging, and approaches her writing through the thing she values the very most – her relationship with Jesus. She wrote a post recently where she talked about accepting herself as an introvert and being proud of who God made her to be, and the whole time I was reading it I just kept thinking how glad I was that she wrote it! We need less fluff and more honesty on blogs, don't we?
Along with her new site, Mary Rachel got some new headshots (taken by yours truly) and I have to say, she looks fabulous in them! We took these in her home and I love the way they turned out. I'm so thankful we got to partner together for these!
