Logan Wolfram Interview-WCW
It’s Wednesday Y’all! You know what that means: it’s time for WCW, where we talk to a woman who is rocking the web. Today’s interview is Logan Wolfram.
I’m stoked to introduce you to Logan. She’s an author, mother and business owner of the amazing blogger conference, Allume. Her new book, Curious Faith releases in only a few short weeks and you are going to LOVE it! I’ve added a link for you all to order her book at the end of our interview. Here’s my interview with Logan Wolfram. Enjoy peeps!
Tell us a little about yourself?
ACK! This is the kind of question where I never know what to say! Um…where to begin?! I’m a wife (13 years this year), mom to 2 wild little boys, and a Spanish majoring interior decorator turned author. I’ve held the most random jobs over the years from cooking in a restaurant to top 40 radio salesperson to jewelry designer to interior decorator to conference host and now author. I’ve always thought these things were completely unrelated, but the more I journey with the Lord, the more I see ways that each thing I’ve done has prepared me for the next. God is a masterful weaver of story isn’t he?
You host a beautiful gathering called Allume. How does the gathering of that many women bloggers effect you?
Well, we are taking a sabbath from Allume this year to create space for our team to breathe since we spend a full year preparing and planning for each conference. It is the most beautiful gathering of likeminded souls though. It is a place where we all “get” one another…in the ways we are called to use our voices, influence, and online spaces. It is a place where I feel so at home amongst these women who have come to feel like family to me. Planning it is like a full-time job though, and with my book launching this year (and team members of ours moving, pregnant, in school, etc) it just felt most healthy to step back and create space to hear what the Lord has next for us and the community.
The theme of your new book is living curiously. What does that mean to you in regard to everyday life?
I think there are things in our everyday life that all impact the way we live curiously and have a curious faith about the Lord. Whether it’s trying a new recipe, reading a new book, inventing new games with our kids, or enjoying time outdoors, there are moments that can inspire and ignite our curiosity all throughout our days. It is learning to live in anticipation of what is to come and to cultivate curiosity in the world around us that fuels a fire to be more curious about what God has for us too.
You’re doing something pretty fantastic around the launch of your book, where are you going and why?
Well…I was going to be heading to climb Mt Kilimanjaro with One Million Thumbprints, but sadly I’m not going anymore for a myriad of reasons. More about that here (http://loganwolfram.com/2015/
What did no one tell you about being a woman that you wish they would?
Sheesh…you and the hard questions! 😉 You know, I think that as a woman I don’t know that i ever realized the amount of sacrifice it’d take…to fulfill all of the roles. To be a wife, to be a mom, to work or school or whatever you do. The longer I live the more I have to figure out what it looks like to live fully alive as an individual but simultaneously alive in the roles and callings on my life. I’m not sure if anyone had told me before I was filling all the roles though that I’d have believed them…you really do have to live to learn, right?
Is there a verse or a saying or a song you repeat over yourself in the good times? In the bad times?
The past year I’ve been repeating Ps 31:24 a lot.”Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the Lord!” Also I’ve been a fan of Matt 6:34 for about as long as I can remember, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” I think part of a capacity to be curious comes from not projecting our own plans too far into the future.
Coffee or tea?
Both. But the first thing I want every morning is a hot cup of coffee with real heavy cream and sugar. I’ve tried drinking it black (even the really good stuff), and while I can certainly appreciate it, I just do love my cream and sugar. But in the late afternoons and evening, I love a cup of hot tea. My favorites are herbal usually (peppermint, chamomile, and my most recent favorite is called Ginger Turmeric and is super yummy! Any tea with licorice root seems to become a favorite as it naturally sweetens it!)
