Friends!!! Welcome back to The Messy Table! YAY!! And sorry for all the exclamation marks, but we’ve missed you, missed these conversations, missed these powerful stories, and are so thankful to be back in this intentional space.

Kicking off our fall episodes is the darling, strong, and faith-filled Brandi Wilson. Brandi is a boy mama, football mama, single mama of three who’s not only “classy until kickoff” but has raised boys to men, survived a heart-wrenching divorce, and is still Better Than Okay (yep, that’s the title of her new book!).

Brandi has planted churches and written books, she co-leads a nonprofit called Leading and Loving It and works as a Certified Coach. She says…

“My marriage was not restored but, man, God was willing and able to restore me—and redeem my part of that story.”  Brandi Wilson

If you’ve ever been blindsided by heartache, Brandi has so much compassion, wisdom, and grace to share. So grab your coffee and join Cindy Beall + Jenn Jewell for a chat with Brandi at The Messy Table.
