Becca Eastvold is a recovering perfectionist. She longs to be known for loving God and people (in that order). She spends most of her days in yoga pants playing alongside her two sons. Her profession is kids' pastor at the Duluth Vineyard Church. Whether at home or work, you'll find her investing in the next generation. When an opportunity arises, she always asks if it's exciting and terrifying. If the answer to both is yes, she's on board. Never easily satisfied, she's always chasing the next messy adventure God is inviting her into.

The Beauty I Miss

We All Have a Story

I've been on this self awareness journey. I've been challenged to recognize what triggers shame, defensiveness and anger. Each day, I'm looking for when each of these things show up in my life to...

Rock Bottom Honesty

I think there's power in sharing the stuff we think will change how people see us. We can sometimes think if we're really honest, we'll no longer be accepted. If they really knew me,...

“What Happened to Your Head?!” Friends

After sitting down in the chair, I looked up at myself in the mirror. I was excited and expectant of something new, something different. I was bored and searching for a simple way to reinvent my...

A New Way to Spell Love
