Welcome to The Messy Table—an ordinary space for real women, imperfect stories, and the God who’s at work in our mess. Today, for Episode 25, Amy Groeschel and I are chatting with the absolutely charming Sandra Stanley—who is simply a breath of fresh air.

Sandra is the mom of three grown children, wife to Andy Stanley—founder of North Point Ministries, a foster mama + advocate for kids from hard places, and an author of two devotional books: Comparison Trap and Breathing Room (see GIVEAWAY details below). She is super down-to-earth and has the most soothing southern accent. Trust me, I could’ve chatted with her for DAYS.

“The shortcut to contentment is a heart of gratitude.” —Sandra Stanley

 

This conversation is packed with all of the topics mentioned above, as well as how to navigate various seasons of life/marriage/motherhood and the learned wisdom that comes with facing challenges. We also highlight two really important issues, especially among women, like (1) the never-ending trap of comparison, and (2) the temptation to constantly overextend ourselves—leaving little to zero breathing room.

I didn’t realize how much I needed this conversation until it happened! You’ll love it too, I promise. So grab your coffee, pull up a chair, and join us at The Messy Table.
