HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (TENNESSEE VALLEY LIVING) — Social media can often be a dark place. But Kaitlin Chappell Rogers shares both the beautiful and the harsh realities of life, one message at a time.
Once a reporter for WAFF 48, she now tells stories from a different angle. His Instagram, @kaitlinchappellrogers, is a place where she often writes beautiful words about celebrating, grieving, growing and learning. While one photo shows her dressed to the nines on a perfect night out, another might show you the sleep-deprived mom trying not to let doubt creep in.
It’s a story we all know because it’s the story we all live. And Rogers wants to remind others that we all go through life the same way, one step at a time.
“It’s not perfect, but it’s real,” Rogers said of his own life. “I want people to look at my social media, and it’s easy to look at social media and see influencers and be like, ‘Life is perfect.’ But, I want people to look at mine and say, ‘She’s human, she’s leaning on God, oh my God, it’s good that I’m doing the same thing.’
This love she has for writing and storytelling has led to two books, “No God”, and “Hey little florist.” “Not from God” is about taking your thoughts captive and learning what is from God and what is not.
Although “Hey Little Flower Girl” is a children’s book, it shares a message that we all need to remember. Rogers shares that no job is too small to make a moment more beautiful.
An excerpt from the book reads: “‘Hey Little Flower Girl’ is a gift for every young girl playing a part in a bride’s special day, but it’s also a gift for anyone in need of encouragement in their seemingly small moments.”
I don’t know about you, but it’s a message even I need to hear at 25. It’s also the perfect gift for any bridesmaid before your big day! It’s wedding season after all.
Rogers says whether it’s through an Instagram story, a blog post, or even a book, her goal is to remind people of the purpose God gave them.
“I want people to know that your story matters no matter what,” Rogers said confidently. “You could have started with nothing, and it’s still something for God. In the worldview of success, it’s not the same as what God sees. Everyone can be used for the glory of God and I think we overlook that because we think we have to have 2 million followers to make a difference and that’s just not true.
Whether you’re going through a season of celebration or heartbreak, Rogers likely has some words to share.
