I’m honored to connect with YOU. Thanks for inviting me into your inbox.
Choosing REAL: An Invitation to Celebrate When Life Doesn’t Go As Planned is for my fellow planners, those of us who like to be in control and GET ‘ER DONE! I wrote this coming out of a fresh fog of grief after losing my dad to a sudden stroke. I looked around and noticed a shift, a raw awareness and deep desire to accept that I am not in control (even though I did my best to appear that way) and began choosing to peer through circumstances and understand God’s heart in the middle of real life, especially when it didn’t go as hoped.

Rest a bit.
Share your heart.
Consider yourself at home, just as you are.
Ever read Tuesday’s with Morrie? One of my hands-down faves. About a sweet soul who spends his final hours listening to people. Basically that’s my heartbeat; to pay attention and reflect back how I experience the connections between faith and real life. I write and speak and encourage with listening in mind: listening to the Father and then sharing how I’m most alive in hopes to encourage you to live out your truest self.
In the messy.
The unplanned moments.
In relationships and marriage and parenting crazy kiddos.
In designing and reading and resting, eating and antiquing.
Basically I’m a sucker for life and soaking up every moment because that’s where Jesus is – tucked up right where we are; living and breathing and working and playing.
If you’re looking for vulnerability, down with talking about hard things, and choosing to see genuine beauty every.single.day, consider yourself invited, friend.
My first book, Choosing Real: An Invitation to Celebrate When Life Doesn’t Go as Planned released December 2016. I love communicating with women, whether in small groups or large conferences, as if you were sitting on my couch and catching up as old friends. You can find me at exploring our new town of Nashville, reading, baking, rearranging furniture or flea-marketing. My creative hubby Bryan and I have been married a dozen+ years. We have two energetic boys, and reside at The Wonder Home outside of Nashville, where dance parties are a regular occurrence..

He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said,”Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” ~ Revelation 21:5
“Bekah’s message was one that could literally apply to everyone. There was a wide range of ages at my table, and I think each one of us was able to have a takeaway from her story and what she had to share with us. It’s always nice when you hear a speaker who you can tell is real, and who truly cares about those she’s speaking to.” – Biola Women’s Fellowship
“Bekah has a way of opening up her heart and inviting you in. She shares her life in a spirit of authenticity and speaks to you at eye level as she brings forth God’s truths. It’s as if you are having a cup of coffee with a good friend. Bekah is warm, relatable, fun-loving and REAL. Our moms left feeling inspired and understood. We loved her!” – Trisha
“As a speaker and writer, Bekah’s greatest ability is her vulnerability and the courage she offers others to be vulnerable as well. She connects life experience with biblical principles in a way that is real and imperfect- it is a gift to her audience.” – Kelly S.
