In this episode, you’ll hear Columbine survivor, Crystal Woodman Miller, talk about how God uses our stories –- no matter how dark and hopeless -- to make an impact for His Kingdom. You’ll learn how the enemy of our souls feeds us lies that trick us into insecurity, comparison, and fear to keep us from making that Kingdom impact. If you’re suffering or grieving or struggling to find hope in a broken world, I pray this interview gives you hope that God is with you in the midst of it all.

She reminds us of the force, power, authority of our King Jesus who is coming back one day. And she admonishes us of the dangers of comparing ourselves or lives to those of other women.
