On this episode of the Journeywomen podcast, I chatted with one of my own favorite podcasters, Jamie Ivey, about supporting and encouraging other women. Though I’m sure you probably know her, Jamie is a wife, mother of 4, blogger, podcaster, and author. She hosts one of my go-to podcasts called “The Happy Hour” and is releasing a book in January of 2018 titled "If Only You Knew: My Unlikely, Unavoidable Story of Becoming Free." Through her podcast, Jamie cheers other women on in a way that encourages them to do what they do with excellence for the glory of God! We chatted about everything from our own struggle with comparison to how the Gospel enables us to freely celebrate what God is doing in the lives of our sisters in Christ.
You guys, when I started brainstorming guests and topics for the Journeywomen podcast it was a dream of mine to chat with Jamie Ivey. I’ve been listening to her podcast, The Happy Hour, for years. Her willingness to come on my show was yet another reflection of her kindness and her support for other women in ministry. I walked away from my conversation with Jamie encouraged to communicate value and care to other women who are on their journeys to glorify God in whatever He’s set before them. I hope ya’ll find our chat as inspiring as I did!
Work with kids and ask yourself how you can do that in other areas of your life too

JAMIE’S SIMPLE JOYS
Watching her pets play outside. (Jamie caveated that she’s not a freaky animal lover, but watching them play outside makes her happy.)
Her kid’s 6th grade band concert. She said it’s the worst thing she’s ever heard, but she was so proud!
Spending time together as a family.

Through daily devotions, vulnerable storytelling and biblical truths, Because I’m His is a community of women rooted in their Biblical identities and walking in the fullness of that reality. After her own season of anxiety and panic, Diana Carter founded Because I'm His as a way to speak back to the lies attacking her identity with the truth of who she is in Christ. Those biblical truths are exactly what she posts on Because I’m His and that’s why I love following her stuff @becauseimhis on Instagram and on their website at becauseimhis.com. The truths posted on Because I’m His are such a helpful and beautiful way to remember our identity in Christ. I love seeing pictures paired with truth as I scroll through my Instagram feed as a way to remember and not forget who I am because of what Christ has done. Follow @becauseimhis on Instagram and check out their website at becauseimhis.com.
If you’ve been around Journeywomen for awhile, I know you’ve heard me talk about how much camp has impacted my own life. Because of that, I want to tell you about T Bar M camps located in New Braunfels, TX. You’ve probably heard of T Bar M for their incredible summer camps, but did you know that you can retreat with them year round? If you have a group that needs to retreat, T Bar M is definitely the place to go. I’ve been there for my own personal retreat and ya’ll, it is BEAUTIFUL! It’s the perfect place to inspire your people to laugh, play and enjoy life together at a family camp or reunion. Right now, T Bar M is partnering with Journeywomen to help you retreat well! Visit tbarm.org/journeywomen and get a free ebook on the value of retreating, along with 15% off your first retreat experience! Follow them on Instagram or Facebook.
