Teresa Swanstrom Anderson is living the life she thought she never wanted. With an art history degree and dreams of living in Europe as a curator, Teresa had big plans for herself. After a decision to lay her exciting plans at the feet of Christ, God began changing her heart little by little and began dating the man who eventually became her husband. Teresa’s life is a series of redirected dreams, stumbling, falling, getting up, and wondering if she is investing her time where it matters most. Through it all, she aims to see beauty everywhere and grasp joy tightly. And some days she actually manages to pull it off.What we chat about: Teresa's complicated and miraculous adoption story making your home a sanctuary finding your hygge not letting your passion define your purpose creating community learning to wait well Links mentioned: Beautifully Interrupted Connect with Teresa: website | instagram | facebook | pinterest Connect with Emily: website I instagram I facebook I patreon Episode Sponsors: Canvas People: get an 11x14 canvas free + shipping with code MSW Prep Dish: get a free 2 week trial at prepdish.com/swp Brooklinen: get $20 off + free shipping with code SWP Better Life Bags: get 10% off with code SWP support the show: Patreon | Amazon Share the Struggle!
