Episode 23: The Ups, The Downs, and all the In Between!
It’s about to get personal! I was struck by all the posts I was seeing on Instagram at the first of the year where “Influencers” were talking about being less curated, less filtered, and more authentic. It challenged me to reflect on my own experiences with Instagram, as I’ve spent the last 5ish months trying to grow a “following” from nothing.

Lauren joins us again on the podcast, to update us on how she got from Florida to Nashville! If you missed her first episode, head on back to Episode 3 and give it a listen! The prayer I mention is by Thomas Merton: My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it. Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone. Find her on Instagram @LaurenGloyne Find me on Instagram @BeNourishedPodcast
