Idea: A New Girl Coffee in Downtown Franklin

Hello Bravehearted Beauties! Today is a step-outside-your-comfort-zone and do-something-brave kind of day. It doesn’t have to be a drastic, jumping off a cliff kind of brave. Any little push through your fear counts!


Today, I have an idea. It’s not a new idea, but it’s the first day I’ve had the courage and follow through to share it. {Follow through isn’t my strength. But when God keeps nudging you, it’s hard to ignore.}

An invitation for the “new girl” in Franklin/Nashville:

And takeaways for the rest of you {shared at the end of the video}:

  1. Bravery isn’t the absence of fear. It’s actually stepping into something when the fear is right there. So, BE BRAVE and do your thing!
  2. We can still show up for life even when we don’t think we have much to offer. The truth is, when you show up as you, you have AMAZING things to offer. Just by being you!

When I wrote about chasing our dream and moving to Franklin in 2012, I never imagined my raw heart would land at the top of a Google search. Since that post, I feel like the unofficial welcoming committee for women who are dreaming about or planning a move to Franklin. Talk about an unexpected role! A savvy business woman might have capitalized on that position, but that’s not my heart.

My heart goes out to the new girl. I can’t possibly meet all of the new girls on my own, but I can do this one thing God keeps putting on my heart: gather the new girls and allow them to connect with each together over coffee in charming Downtown Franklin.

So…if you’re new and want to meet some other new girls, send me an email. If you’re an introvert, and this idea terrifies you, send me an email. If you aren’t new, but still feel new or have a heart for the new girl, send me an email. And if you don’t live here at all, but have something to say, feel free to send me an email! {You can do that via my “connect” page.}

To all things brave and beautiful,

  • Stacey - Linsey, I think your idea is wonderful! We recently left the area after moving to Franklin from Florida. Being the new girl was so difficult and I would have loved this opportunity. I will pray for your meeting today and encourage you to continue in stepping in faith where God is leading you!ReplyCancel

  • Kelly George - This “new girl” all the way from Texas to Tn is all in! I love how you follow the promtings of the Holy Spirit! You are brave! 😉ReplyCancel

  • cynthia - I’ve been in MI for 5 years and still feel like the new girl. My quest for other “new girls” led me to ESL ministry at my church. I’m thankful for that, but still yearn for the “coffee time’ that you are trying to create. Thankful that you are following the Spirit’s guidance. He will show up! Women have a way of connecting once they have been brought together. I love that about us!!!!ReplyCancel
