About Paige…

Paige Straarup is the Social Media Strategist at Proverbs 31 Ministries and Social Media Consultant for The Social Paige. She actively manages more than a dozen social accounts and her knowledge on growth has helped organizations see over 20 million people reached through social media. After losing her mom at a young age, it became evident that Paige’s testimony would fuel her mission to share God’s faithfulness. Through her story, Paige has been able to mentor other young women struggling with loss. She is passionate about creating a sacred space for people to connect through social. 

In this episode, Paige shares what it has been like living in South Africa after she and Brad’s world was flipped upside down after their honeymoon. We talk about what it means to work your wait in seasons that are hard and don’t make sense. She puts up with me as I ask silly questions about what life is like in Africa, and you will leave this episode so deeply encouraged.

I am an online encourager based out of Birmingham, AL that's obsessed with my girls and sharing bits and pieces of my life. I wear a lot of hats these days including mama to two boys, military wife, blogger, podcast host and more. You can find me behind the microphone at Real Talk with Rach where we talk about everything from jeans to Jesus, playlists to pop culture, the good and the grief and everything in between.
