Seriously, people. I am not exaggerating when I say this is one of the most important books I have EVER read. Pretty sure I need to read it every day for the rest of life. In a culture that so highly elevates and tirelessly chases celebrity, may we as Jesus followers not forget that He lived 90% of his earthly life in obscurity. THIRTY YEARS growing in favor, wisdom and intimacy with the Father, and no one knowing He was the Messiah. I never want to despise hidden years. Revelation comes from rest, wisdom from winter and waiting and wrestling with God. THIS BOOK CHANGED MY LIFE GO READ IT!! (Sorry for shouting. Love y'all. 😉❤)
We’re looking for churches to record their vocals to be mixed into a new project from @wordworshipmusic called #TheChurchWillSing - Hear the songs and sign up at TheChurchWillSing.com // I’m honored to be a part of one of the songs on this project called “One Pursuit” 🧡
Bob Goff is just the freaking best.
WHAT IS HAPPENING?! If you need me I'll be crying in a corner somewhere because my babies aren't babies anymore. 💔😭 📷:@hardenmyfrench
Our family in Chicago released a new album today! @jacobsooter and I were honored to serve alongside this team for over 10 years, and now we are cheering them on from Nashville. Their hearts are to see people encounter the presence of God and these songs are evidence of that. I was honored to write on After Your Heart and Strength of My Life, and my girls @tarawhatshername and @lsweens carry them so so beautifully. (The appropriate phrase would actually be CRUSHED IT.) Bright Faith Bold Future. So so good. 🔥🙌🏼❤
As of Sunday, we have officially added a sixth member to our family. On Easter afternoon, Jacob and his dad were driving to go play tennis when Jacob spotted a tiny creature on the side of the road, digging through a bag of trash. I don't know who could throw away such a sweet pup, but we were just glad Jacob found her when he did. We have been talking about getting a dog for months. Turns out Jesus had just the one for us with a redemption story all her own. Since she was rescued on Easter, we named her Lily. And we are in love. ☺❤🐶
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. 1 Peter 1:3 • Rejoicing in this Truth today. Never more grateful for the cross, never more in awe of the resurrection. Happy Easter from the Sooter's! #Heisrisen #Easter2018 #Resurrection #Jesusisalive

This girl right here, y'all. She is GOLD. Love her, love it when we get to do women's events together ESPECIALLY when it's to raise money for a home for teen trafficking victims. Such a sweet, sweet night. #gigishouse

The last 6 months for me as a Worship Circle coach have marked me forever. What an honor to pour into the girls in my group and be so challenged and encouraged by THEM as well! There's something really special about hopping in a video room each month with a handful of like-minded people from around the world, sharing highs and lows, and lifting each other up in prayer. To all my fellow women worship warriors, if you are looking for community or growth or simply needing encouragement from sisters like you, I would be OVER THE MOON if you joined my group for the next Worship Circle term! You were never meant to carry it alone. Join us! Link in bio.
Now//Then (circa 2007). Thankful I get to be their sister. Miss you, @toinfinityandbey0n.
I've been thinking about this man all week. His life, his legacy, the gaping hole he left behind. I can only imagine the welcome he received when he walked through those gates of pearl, him making a b-line straight for Jesus and then his beloved Ruth, and hearing the words Well done. Now that Billy is in heaven, the burning question in my heart this week has been this: Who will rise up? Who will fill his shoes? Who will pick up the torch and carry the cross with the love and urgency necessary to see a broken world find hope in a real Savior? It's time, Church. Time for us to no longer live for temporary comforts or successes, not for the empty applause of man, but for the glory of God and the advancement of His Kingdom. I'm not satisfied with chasing some American dream while people all around me are dying, unaware of a God whose love for them is massive and relentless, the remedy for their souls. May the passing of Billy Graham be a wake up call for us Jesus followers to finally live for something bigger than ourselves and make disciples of every nation. #billygraham #revival
Typical Monday night at the Sooter house. #NeverEnough @pasekandpaul
Being part of the @worshipcircle team these last few months has been one of the richest, most life-giving experiences I've had. I love this community so much and have grown like crazy as a result of running alongside these people, cheering one another on in this journey of faith. If you are a worship leader and are looking to go deeper and discover more fully how to walk out God's call on your life, or simply want to sit in a (video) room full of like-minded people from around the globe, join us for our online Summit next Thursday!

Valentines since 2007. Love you more now than ever, @jacobsooter. What a gift you are to me! ❤ #valentinesday2018
We don't often get to stand beside each other and lead together, but when we do it is beautiful and fierce. What a profound honor to link arms with my sisters, these warrior women in the Kingdom, and lift the Name of Jesus high. #tbcoturnsfour #tbco
Last night was a night that marked us all, a night that will forever stand as a remembrance of God's faithfulness to us as a church as well as a celebration of what's to come. We love being a part of this house and will never be the same as a result of what God is doing @thebelongingco. Thank you, @henryseeley and @alexseeley for always chasing the glory of God, lifting the name of Jesus higher than anything, and going after real life change in the hearts of each person who walks through our doors each week. The best is yet to come. Happy birthday, TBCØ! #tbcoturnsfour #tbco
So excited, so expectant. TBCO 4th birthday celebration TONIGHT!! 🔥
It is only because of this girl (and Jesus) that I am a sane person, you guys. Harden has been the sixth member of our family for over a year and a half now, and we can't remember life without her. She radiates joy and ushers in peace wherever she goes. Today is her birthday and I'm believing this will be her best year yet. The Sooters love you, @hardenrives14! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! 🎈
Worship night at church...PUMPED OUT OF MY MIND!! Join us online at 7:30 CST on the TBCo app or thebelonging.co. 🙌🏼❤
