Many of us are living in the in-between places: in between sickness and health, divorce and lasting love, job frustration, and fulfillment. Recently, I had the distinct privilege to talk to the Co-founder of The Polished Network and Author of The In-Between Places: Where Jesus Changes Your Story, Kat Armstrong. From the moment our ZOOM screens met, we totally engaged in a remarkable conversation about how Kat’s visit to Israel led her to begin writing this book. As she shared her own journey through “in-between places,” I fell in love with this dynamic young woman. I know you will, too! She is a true theologian and passionate follower of Jesus and has great wisdom for us all.
Here’s to becoming stronger in the in-between places.
The In-Between Place offers deeply important insights to anyone who feels stuck and can’t see a way forward. It is for the person who feels that if she looks left, her face will be scraped by an immovable boulder, and if she looks right, she’ll see nothing but hard to handle. It’s for the person who feels lost and is not sure she is worth the effort to be found, for the person who feels overlooked and unfulfilled. Because sometimes Jesus saves our greatest spiritual breakthroughs for our in-between places.Kat Armstrong, The In-Between Places

Hope For Your In-Between Places
Kat and I hope that our conversation brings you great hope for your in-between places.
I found myself in-between tears and laughter the entire time. Isn’t that the way the journey through life ought to be? I think it was the “relatability” factor when someone “gets your story.” They relate on deep levels because they have been in your shoes. Maybe they walked a very different path, but the “stops along the way” were similar:
- Patience, endurance, and spiritual resilience are needed for the journey through in-between places.
- Healing happens in the community. As Kat said, “No woman is an island.” We need each other. What I most loved about Kat’s story is the “angels unaware” that came to her rescue in her deepest times of need (Hebrews 13:2).
- Jesus finishes what he starts in our lives (Philippians 1:6). It might “look different” than expected, but in my personal experience, it is usually better than I expected.
- Standing on the shoulders of great women who have gone before us helps us keep going.
