Cole and Sav

Cole & Sav: Our Surprising Love Story 

There’s not many YouTubers that I consistently follow due to time management, but this sweet couple is one of them! They put out family-oriented videos a couple of times a week, and in this book, they give more details about how the met and their stories.

I first heard of Cole LaBrant when watching he and his mom on The Amazing Race a couple of years ago when they had a season of just YouTuber and social media influencers racing.  I didn’t look him up or follow him after that, just occasionally coming across a video of his.  I hadn’t heard of Savannah or her daughter at all.  Then, my favorite YouTubers, Jess and Gabriel Conte, mentioned how excited they were for Cole and Savannah, who had just announced that they were pregnant.  I immediately clicked over to watch their announcement video and cried at how sweet it was.  I was hooked after that! When they mentioned earlier this year in one of their videos that they were coming out with a book, I looked it up to see if I could get an advance copy.

I read it almost in one sitting! Cole and Sav’s way of storytelling made it seem as if they were just chatting with you over coffee about how they met.  It was an easy read, but a cute and inspiring one.  They really talked about how important their faith in God was to them, which I appreciated, and I thought the details of how they met were just miraculous! You can see God’s hand all over their story.  My only complaint would be that Cole would write about something, and then it would switch to Savannah’s perspective and basically repeat the same story, and vice versa throughout the book, which made it seem like it could have been half as long.  On the other hand, I also enjoyed seeing both of their perspectives and what they thought of each other, so I didn’t mind the repeat so much–it obviously didn’t deter me from reading it, and I didn’t find myself skipping through parts of the book either.

Anyway, I thought this was a really precious and inspiring story about God bringing two people together and redeeming their pasts and finding love.  I would definitely recommend it for anyone that wants to know more of the behind-the-scenes about this sweet couple!

I also just want to say congratulations to Cole and Savannah for writing a book together in the midst of doing YouTube and creating a family! I know they must have a lot on their plates, but I’m thankful that they shared their testimonies with us, because they truly are encouraging.

I Lost My Confidence

Hey everyone! I’m so sorry that last week’s church notes are late–and I hate to tell you, but this week’s will probably be late too because I’ve got a crazy couple of weeks lined up.  I’ll aim to have them posted by the end of next week.

Anyway, onto last week’s notes!

Sorry…Traveling Again

Hey guys, this week’s sermon notes are going to be late again because I was driving while listening to the message this week and obviously couldn’t take notes and drive. 🙂 I’ll try to listen to it again and take and upload notes by the end of the week, but the next couple of weeks are so busy so no promises.

Be sure to be on the lookout for some upcoming travel posts!
