This Is Your VillageNov 11, 2022
An Evening with Laura McCormick
After a months-long hiatus, "This Is Your Village" is back! I had the loveliest conversation with Laura McCormick this evening covering everything from homeschooling to C.S. Lewis, writing to pets, painting to flying, and everything in between. Honestly, it's difficult to sum up this episode in just a few words! Laura has one of the most curious minds of anyone I know, and a heart that is completely in love with Jesus. Do yourself a favor and listen, then look for her at Portico so you can meet her yourself.
A Word of Encouragement
The one where Amy goes off script, has no one to interview, but offers some encouragement for your hard days, and hard seasons. Think of it as her chance to sit down with you and love you in whatever thing you're going through now that feels lonely and hard. It's humbly offered; hopeful and sincere.

Hello and Welcome with Janet Lohr
The first woman we meet in our Portico Village is Janet Lohr. Listen in as Janet graciously goes first, introduces herself, and shares a bit about how she has seen God redeem some things for her family from 2020, delves into her daily quiet time structure and rhythms, and just generally speaks out of her wisdom as a "Great" in the Portico family. (In case you missed it, I've named the women over 50 in Portico the "Greats." I think their wisdom and long service in the church bear this title out!)
