Trusting God When Life Takes An Unexpected Turn with Kristen Clark | Episode 119

Has your life gone precisely as you would have chosen? In one way or another, we all would answer that question with a resounding “no.” It’s no secret that life can be unpredictable. The plans we dream about and make don’t always become our realities. When that happens, we can feel let down, disappointed, and lost. My guest, Kristen Clark, understands this better than most people. She believes joy does not come from getting the life you always dreamed of. Instead, it comes from trusting God with the life He has for you and believing that His plans truly are good.

Finding and Keeping Friendships (with my friends from high school!) | Episode 115

If you’ve read any of my books, you know that I was a latecomer to the world of having close friends (can you relate?). It wasn’t until my junior year of high school that I finally met my group of girlfriends. Those three friends and I have maintained our relationship through the years, but it has taken intentional effort on all our parts. I want to share a conversation all four of us had on our most recent girls’ trip. We talked about what it takes to make and keep friendships, and I hope it will encourage you today!
