    A Special Conversation on Receiving God’s Love with Pastor Maria Durso

    A Special Conversation on Receiving God’s Love with Pastor Maria Durso

    Have you ever struggled to receive God’s love? We’re unpacking this today in this special guest edition of Conversations with Pastor Maria Durso.

    Recently, Lisa hosted a conversation with Pastor Maria Durso on her podcast The Godmother with Lisa Bevere. The conversation was powerful, redemptive, such an incredible testimony of God’s love… and when it was all said and done, it ended up being one of our all-time favorite interviews here at the Messenger Podcast Network… so for that reason, we want you—our friends over here in the Conversations with John and Lisa crew, to have a chance to hear that conversation.

    Pastor Maria is a powerhouse mother, wife, grandmother, pastor, and minister. Her story is one of incredible redemption and triumph, a true testimony to the power of God’s love.

    In this episode, Pastor Maria shares:
    —her story of motherlessness, trauma, abuse, and how God intervened in the midst of her pain
    —how she learned to receive God’s love
    —how to pray powerful prayers over your kids
    —the roles of younger women and older women in the church

    Whatever your story may be, God wants to meet you in the midst of it. He is faithful to heal your wounds, redeem your pain, and rewrite your story in a way that empowers you to move forward in strength.

Worth a listen

I’ve been listening to these podcasts for the last few years and have honestly loved and appreciated every single one. I love the honesty with with subjects are discussed, I love that the Word of God is held up as the go-to for our answers, I love the humility, the teaching. But most of all I love hearing strong, serious voices talking about issues that too many in the church in general don’t even concern themselves with. I want to be led and guided by people like this. People switched on and not in bed with the world trying to win the world. I’ve just listened to the two Benham brothers podcasts (164/165) and they are gold. So challenging and inspiring. Keep up the good work John and Lisa. You are meeting a real need xxx
