Are you racing towards your goals? Running away every chance you can? I sure do. We could all use a gentle reminder to slow down and listen to what God may be telling us.

This week we are bringing you an exclusive interview with our very own Rebecky! There are no problems this month as we celebrate Rebecca Smith’s vulnerable and sweet page-turner that launched this week. In A Better Life: Slowing Down to Get Ahead, Rebecca tells us many personal stories of how she took baby steps and followed God’s lead to find her purpose. Even though she is one of my dearest friends, I didn’t know the sweet story behind Better Life Bags before reading. I loved each chapter more than the last and I’m so happy she shared her heart with all of us.

Rebecca Smith lives in a low-income area of Detroit, Michigan with her husband, four children, and many miscellaneous pets. She started a custom handbag company in her basement with a mission to hire women who have various barriers to employment. These women are adopted into the Better Life family and given a chance to succeed in life, family, and friendship. 

WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT:
  • an update on Better Life Bags

  • Rebecca and Katie - who’s Emily’s sister?

  • Emily new home decor

  • Rebecky’s southern, tea-drinking grandma alter ego, Honey Bee

  • launching a book during a pandemic

  • letting your dreams simmer

  • avoiding comparison

  • feeling like a fraud (it’s not just you)

  • God’s “special stickers”
