On today’s episode of the Journeywomen podcast, I chatted with Randi Beth Burton about all things dating. Taking me out of my comfort zone! Randi Beth schooled this old married lady on the newest dating fads and I learned a lot! But more importantly, we sought to look at the awkward experience of dating through the lens of the Gospel. We didn’t hit a lot of practicals, because we figured ya’ll have already been inundated with that, and we admittedly don’t have many tips there anyway. But, we can offer you the refreshing truth of the Gospel that is your hope as you navigate all of life, including dating. Listen to what Randi Beth said,
“It’s so much better for me to look at the situation where God has me and be content in that and love that because He is a good God and He has me there for a purpose. And that purpose is knowing Him and experiencing intimacy with Him.”
Randi Beth is 32, single with 2 awesome roommates and a dog, and she lives in New Braunfels, TX. Randi Beth does Marketing for T Bar M Camps and Retreats. She loves seeing the way God uses camp to impact the lives of the campers who attend, the counselors who serve them all summer, and their families. She has a small group of high school girls that she leads and does life with, which is one of her great blessings in this season of life.
The Gospel meets us wherever we’re at, regardless of our life season. This conversation is actually the third of five episodes we’re putting out on the topic of relationships. So, if you’re new, be sure to hop back to last week’s episode on singleness with Becca Harris and subscribe to the podcast to catch next week’s episode on marriage!

You've heard me talk about T Bar M and their awesome retreat offerings, but now it's February which means it's time to start thinking about summer camp! I can tell you from personal experience that the best weeks of my summer growing up and as a staffer in college was at summer camp and T Bar M is one of the best out there! For all you moms out there with school-aged children, you know you have months of summer to plan for your kids, so if you want to give your kids an experience that matters this summer, send them to T Bar M! Your kids will have a chance to step away from the craziness of life, jump into some serious fun, AND grow in their ability to love God and love others! T Bar M has Day Camps if you happen to be local to New Braunfels Texas, or overnight camps for campers 1st – 11th grade, or if you want to join in on the fun, too, we have incredible Family Camps. Go check them out at tbarm.org/journeywomen to learn all about it.
