Do you struggle with seeing God's presence in your life day-to-day? If you do, you've landed in the right place. So often, we see our lives as a series of random events when the reality, for Christians, is a well-planned journey. God's Holy Spirit is very much in our day-to-day. Our conversations will focus on recognizing God's grace and mercy. We'll talk about practical ways to build our trust in God by noticing His faithfulness. Welcome to Your Hope Coach Podcast — a few minutes of hope in a world that wants us to feel hopeless. I'm Carmen Horne, your host and your Hope Coach. My mission is to support women as they learn to embrace, with hope, the unexpected. Let's connect: https://carmenhorne.com/ - Facebook and IG: @CarmenHorneCoach
