Episode #16: Ellie Berry // The Messy Table Podcast

Who are you—really? What defines you?

Is it your job, your family, your house, your education, your ability, your relationship status, your social-media following? Identity is a big deal because it drastically affects the trajectory of our lives.

“Our identity influences our purpose.” —Ellie Berry

My guest today at The Messy Table is the adorable Ellie Berry, who’s young-but-fierce and WISE BEYOND HER YEARS. Ellie is a successful wedding photographer by day (Ellie Be Photography), but she’s leaning into God’s deeper purpose for her life—not just in what she does, but in who she is.

We’re talking about the secret to stepping into your true identity with boldness, obedience, and purpose in this passion-filled episode. Honestly, I need to listen to it at least two or three more times to really let it marinate. Also, I’m obsessed with Ellie’s voice—so soothing! Her words are a breath of fresh air for our often-weary souls. So grab (or reheat) your coffee, pull up a chair, and join us at The Messy Table.
