On this episode of the Journeywomen podcast I had the privilege of chatting with Caroline Cobb. Caroline is a singer-songwriter and worship leader particularly interested in telling the stories of scripture through her music. Her new album A Home + A Hunger centers around the biblical theme of kingdom hope in exile. Caroline and I talked about how viewing Scripture as one Big Story has not only developed our theology, but literally transformed us. I love her encouragement to keep looking at Scripture, no matter what season we’re in or how much time we’re able to devote to studying, because God will use Scripture to change our lives. My favorite quote was, “The Bible is a book about God. It’s not about us. What’s really cool about it is that when we go to Scripture looking for God and not just looking for a quick, Instagram-sized encouragement or whatever, then that is where we find TRUE encouragement, when we’re gazing upward at him instead of trying to get a quick answer or just feel better.” I’m encouraged to continue my quest to grow in my understanding of how this Grand Narrative works it’s way throughout all of history. I hope you’ll join me!

Today's episode of the Journeywomen Podcast is sponsored by T Bar M Camps.
Ya’ll have heard me talk about how much camp has impacted my life... Well, there is a camp in New Braunfels, TX that I love called T Bar M. You may have heard of T Bar M for their incredible kids summer camps, but did you know that you can retreat with them year round? Having spent a year on a camp property, I believe there is something about getting away and being in nature that is good for the soul. Growth is bound to happen when you experience that with other people, be it your family, ministry or business.
If you have a group that needs to retreat, T Bar M is the place to go. T Bar M is a unique property with lots of space, whether it’s a getaway or full on programming and team-building, T Bar M is excited to come alongside of you to accomplish your goals in a Christ-centered environment. Texas may be a quite trip for many of you, but situated between Austin and San Antonio, T Bar M is in close proximity to two airports.
Right now, T Bar M is partnering with Journeywomen to help you retreat well! Visit
