Episode 185: Bri McKoy



I am so excited to welcome Bri McKoy to the table. She calls herself an accidental home cook, turned food blogger, turned author. She loves to gather people around her everyday table. She is the author of Come and Eat: A Celebration of Love and Grace Around the Everyday Table which is an invitation to anyone who is searching for deeper community and a desire to show more of Jesus’ love right from their very own dining room table.

I discovered Bri on Instagram through some mutual friends and she instantly became one of my favorite people. Her energy is contagious. She is so easily to chat with that I felt like we had been friends for years. We talk about what it looks like to create a new normal which she completely relates to as being a military wife. She also shares some tips on how to settle into a temporary space. She talks about what gave her a heart to create a longer table for people and in the process reveals some of her go to recipes and kitchen tools.

Here is a recent one from "MoeRandi". She said, “I love Sarah’s conversation style. She seems like she’s one of those who would be instant friends with anyone she comes in contact with. I appreciate her honesty, her quick-whirred humor and her way with words. She interviews a wide variety of people on a wide array of topics, may of which I’ve found to be applicable to my life (in practical ways) and impactful ways. I am thankful for her heart for God and her heart for others.”
