This week in the studio, Jill and I talked to none other than the wise, beloved, nurturing, queen of community, Mickey! She FaceTimed in from her vacation to talk to us about what it looks like to show up, to build community, to love others, and to trust God in all of that. Jill and I cried the entire time—it was a reminder of the hours we spent sitting at her feet being mentored and cared for by her. Many of you have expressed a desire to know more about her and hear from her. We hope this encourages and blesses you.
For those of you who don’t know Mickey yet, she is a friend of the Tippetts’ who traveled here from out of state again and again throughout Kara’s cancer to love on the entire family and walk that hard with them. She was here for several months at the end of Kara’s life, serving them and always looking for ways to love them. And us girls, for that matter. Despite her own pain and grief, she was always available to us, loving on us, listening to our hearts, crying with us, offering us more coffee, cuddling our babies (and offering them their first French fries!). She is a gift straight from the Lord, as we are grateful that she took the time to talk with us.
