This week’s interview builds upon last week’s episode on listening to God. Brittany Rust teaches us how to build a foundation of intimacy with Jesus by being in God’s word and through prayer, and she shares how those two actions plus the practice of listening and responding in obedience have grown her understanding of what God is calling her to next. You’ll learn the value of waiting on His timing as well as what it looks like to let go of control and trust Him in the pauses, resets and redirection.
In this episode, Beth Ratzlaff talks about the long years she has waited on her dream to be a writer, how God has grown her through the pain of life and through waiting on her dream. She also shares the 5 promises from scripture she uses on a daily basis to draw closer to the Lord. A blogger, waiting-author, spiritual director and ministry leader, Beth calls herself and “ordinary clay-pot woman who is being crafted by an extraordinary potter.” I know you’re going to love hearing her story, especially if waiting is a part of yours.
Jacci Turner has a passion for teaching contemplative prayer. She has great empathy for those whose spiritual disciplines have fallen short under the demands of life, and she longs to offer new tools for their toolbox. In her lifetime, she has worn many hats: therapist, school counselor, campus minister, spiritual director, and mom. Her favorite hats are her writer and grandmother hats, which come in wild colors and don’t fit too tightly. Jacci and her husband live in Nevada’s high desert and spend their mornings hiking through the sagebrush with their big yellow dog, Rocky.
