Episode #84

Bekah Jane Pogue is a ‘self confessed’ work in progress.
She’s married to her best friend, Bryan. They love opening their home to new and old friends, cooking, creating new drinks, and connecting the beauty between play and contemplation. Their two boys make up our crew of four and keep us on our toes and knees. Daily!

She’s an author, devotional writer, retreat leader, founder of Pasture Experience, a spiritual director-in-training, a writing & creative coach, and a design enthusiast. More than anything, she longs to be a listener. A listener to her own interior thoughts and feelings, a listener to God’s voice, and a listener of others. She believes listening is healing.

Bekah feels most fully alive sitting on her porch listening to people share their hearts. She communicates from a space of intentionally unclimbing the Someone ladder so that God – not self- is glorified. You can find her off-road, wildflower picking, flea-marketing, dancing while she bakes, and exploring Nashville with my crew.

Her hope is to create a safe space virtually and physically for moms to come as they are and experience soul care, God’s presence, and grace upon grace.

 Book – “Choosing Real”

When you enjoy God’s company first–even in the uncertain moments of life–the heavenly Creator will transform your mind to view your schedule, work, relationships, parenting, and responsibilities as opportunities to dance in life’s storms and honor how beautiful simple can be. That’s the message of the Choosing REAL journal, where Bekah walks with you into life’s unplanned circumstances and reminds you it is in these very moments that God invites you to notice, respond, and even celebrate how He shows up—in every little detail. Featuring quotes from Pogue’s, Choosing REAL, alongside inspiring scripture selections and journal prompts, you will be encouraged to record your personal thoughts and feelings and to accept the invitation to embrace life just as it is!

Puffin’s

“There is so much external noise in our lives it’s difficult to hear”

“We need to be careful listening to what ‘others’ say we are, We need to carefully pick out who we are according to God’s plan and perspective”

“to recharge ourselves, we need to move from ‘performance’ mode to just being ‘still’.”

“Just by being present in each day we share with our kids we can listen and learn ourselves as we teach our kids”

“Creating space in our busy lives allows us to slow down and simplify, allows us to be more available to parent”

“The Pasture Experience” is designed to help us learn to hear God’s voice first”
