My guest for The Happy Hour #326 is….ME! My sweet husband, Aaron, is the host for today’s show and we talk all about my new book, You Be You! I can hardly believe it is out in the world tomorrow, and I am so excited for these words to be in your hands. You can pick up a copy wherever books are sold!

Writing a book is quite the journey from start to finish, so it’s always so surreal when launch time finally comes! Since I announced the release of this book, I’ve gotten a lot of questions about the title, writing process, and everything in between so we answer all of those questions for you! I have such a blast whenever Aaron and I do episodes together, and this time is no different. In today’s episode, we talk about the meaning of You Be You through a biblical and godly lens, and dismantling what we’ve been told about a woman’s highest calling. We even dish out on some of the pros and cons of having a public platform, and what it was like to leave a job I loved to be a stay-at-home mom again. We also talk about what it looks like to live a life that is committed to what’s been placed in front of us, while also living open-handed to what God may have for us. I’ve said it time and time again: I want women to really believe that they matter right where they are and the voice that God’s put in them. It’s not less than mine because I speak into a microphone every week. It’s just different, and it matters. I will keep shouting this message from the rooftops for as long as God asks me to. When you read this book, I truly pray that it is a reminder for what has always been true – that God has touched you and equipped you for a life of glorifying Him exactly where you are.
