Podcast 25: The Gathering Table

 

This was such a fun podcast to record! We are literally gathered around a table! The voices you hear are the founders of The Gathering Table, Melissa and Mark Aguillard and Jeff and Cheryl Moehling.  They build beautiful tables that you will absolutely want for your home AND for every table ordered, they give a table to one of their local outreach partner organizations here in Austin.  I was so excited to hear about their business and how they are giving back.  Their tag line is, “Buy One. Unite Many” which I LOVE.  It’s fun to get the inside scoop on how a new venture begins…to get the “why” and meet the people who say, “YES!” to putting their dreams in motion.

God gives us ideas and then we have to actually do the work.  Amen? These couples have been friends for many years and “finally live in the same town”.  They are excited to have the opportunity to live out this greater calling on their lives together.  How great is that??? Listen in and see what they are all about! Then head over to their website and order a table!

Road Trip to Magnolia Market!

I’m so excited! My friend, Amy, and I road tripped to Waco today!

Rather than write about it, I thought I’d share my pictures so it will be like you were there too!  It is a magical place. Enjoy!

The Magnolia Story

Major Announcement for all of you who are not following me on social media! (Mom)

I am so excited to be a part of the:

Y’all.  For real. We are called the Shiplappers.  I love this so much. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, tune into the show, Fixer Upper, on HGTV.  Do a push up every time someone says Shiplap. 🙂

The darling Chip and Joanna Gaines have written a book, The Magnolia Story,  and I get to help spread the word and give some sneak peeks.  However, I’m challenged on my blog skills and I can’t figure out how to sneak peek over here on the blog.  For that reason, you must join me on Facebook (@GreatBigYES) and/or Instagram (@suebidstrup) and/or Twitter (@greatbigyes) to get all the good stuff.  Mom…I know.  Don’t worry.  I will send you a link in email.

If you don’t know them, Chip and JoJo (we’re best friends now) find houses for people and redesign and remodel and redecorate them.  I want to live in every single one. Gorgeous.

But my favorite thing about them is the way they love each other.  They laugh and are silly and have so much joy in their lives.  Guess what? They LOVE JESUS! So, while I’m excited about shiplap and silos and the farm and Waco and all the things…I’m most excited about the way they love the Lord and each other.  It’s an honor to help share their story.

Here’s an intro:
