Do you know Lara Casey?

Lara is the powerhouse behind “Southern Weddings Magazine” and the Make it Happen Powersheets. From the outside, Lara is someone who knows how to dig deep and make huge things happen, seemingly overnight.

But to hear Lara’s story is to discover grace, redemption, and glimpse the glory of God.

Lara is honest about her struggles in her memoir. She shares about trying hard and losing track of what matters time and time again. It’s from that standpoint of humility and rawness that she shares her journey into grace. It’s easy to put Lara on a pedestal – I know I have from time to time – but she is the first one to tell you that only God deserves that kind of worship.

– God does not need you to be a superhero in order to use you for His great purposes. He just needs your humble, willing heart.

– There is a moment when we are given a choice: let our egos run the show, or surrender our fears and be humbled. The latter is how we make it happen. The times I have been knocked off my feet, realizing I am weak or have no idea what I’m doing, have been catalysts for powerful growth.

– When it comes to our faith, we must choose trust over feelings. There are many times we cannot feel God working, but we can trust that He is. We may not feel loved by God, but we can trust that His love never changes.

I was very grateful for Lara’s book and her transparency across social media. If you don’t follow her, I recommend that you do. She shares the same kind of vulnerability and authenticity across all of her social feeds.

Rated PG: She alludes to some of her struggles.
