Courtney Casper is my guest on this week's podcast. Courtney is a mom to three girls, a wife and currently lives about 30 minutes from the nearest stop light, so she spends a lot of time in her car. She thinks of scripture study as a "magic wand" in motherhood and has found practical ways to make scripture study a daily habit in her busy mom life.
I found Courtney's Instagram account last year after hearing her interview on the Women With Fire podcast. I listened to that episode multiple times and felt so inspired by everything Courtney shared. She is a bright spot on social media sharing her hand lettering and and her posts and stories have frequently been exactly what I needed to hear in my life at that moment.
Courtney is not afraid to share her spiritual side on social media. She keeps her focus on what is most important by asking herself, "What needs my hands now?"
She is a huge advocate for daily scripture reading and in this episode she not only shares how daily scripture study became a part of her busy mom life but also gives some really practical tips that are totally doable for anyone wanting to incorporate daily scripture study in their life.
In the interview we also talk about how social media affects moms and how to combat the negative effects. Courtney shares her thoughts on how to go "in" instead of "out" to find peace in your life. I also really loved what Courtney had to say about what she has learned from her children about being who you are.
Courtney is the real deal. I loved talking to her. In fact, we had a great conversation after we finished recording. She is genuine and honest and her faith shines through in everything she does. Her mantra about scripture study is "you just need 10 minutes" and her message in this episode offers hope and inspiration to all women who want to learn to walk in faith and trust God more fully.
