Happy almost-Thanksgiving, friends! Time for some turkey, board games, and pumpkin spice everything. But as we head into the holidays, we’re reminded that this season can be a MAGNIFIER. The good times are great and the hard times can be overwhelmingly hard—especially for those in untraditional settings.

In today’s episode at The Messy Table, Kim Duncan recounts how she embraced the single life in her 20s, became a wife and instant-mom (in one day!) in her 30s, and eventually added a few more biological kiddos to their beautifully blended family. Now, she’s sharing ALL KINDS OF WISDOM she’s gathered along the journey and is still leaning into today.

“Had we tried to script the story of our family, I still think we would’ve fallen short of what God actually did.”  —Kim Duncan

Y’all, Kim KNOWS what it’s like to step into the uncharted, the unknown, the untraditional—and still proclaim God’s faithfulness on the other side. Her perspective is absolutely stunning and SO VERY IMPORTANT. Join us!
