Trauma and obstacles...we all have them, but not everyone is lucky enough to have a breakthrough to get beyond them.
For some, we may get stuck on the 'why' of it all instead of wondering how God can use that trauma or obstacle for good. Our trauma does not have to define us and we don't have to go at it alone. We are over-comers in Christ.
Our guest today can speak from many points of trauma. You'll hear how she was able to achieve breakthroughs in the obstacles that faced her. Misty Phillip is a dreamer and a doer who is passionate about helping people spark their soul message.
Misty encourages people to use their story to give God glory. The founder of Spark Media, Misty equips Christian communicators and podcasters through virtual and live events, podcast network, magazine and a thriving membership community. She is the host of By His Grace Podcast which is ranked in the top 1.5% of all podcasts.
She's a sought after international speaker and the author of the award winning, number one Amazon new release bible study, The Struggle is Real, But So is God and she's also got the Spark Podcast Planner.
