    Katie Hornor: God Plants Desires in Your Heart so He Can Fulfill Them in the Future

    Katie Hornor: God Plants Desires in Your Heart so He Can Fulfill Them in the Future

    Is there a dream in your heart that you're waiting on God to bring to fruition? Has God given you a vision of a calling but you're not quite sure what it means? God plants those desires in your heart so He can fulfill them someday in the future. Maybe that future is tomorrow, next week, next year, or the next season of your life. And you know what? It's important to mention that it's biblical to be paid for what you do.







    My guest today is Katie Hornor, she talks about dreaming in the details and how God gives you dreams, equips you, and provides all you need for these dreams and visions He has given you. We can trust Him to bring those dreams and visions to life and we can trust in His timing. Hear how God walked Katie and her family through and out of a desert time in ministry and into a fruitful time of living out the vision He gave her as a child.







    Now God is using Katie to equip others in fulfilling their God-given dreams & visions







    Katie's ministry is flourishing and she is helping others see how making money in ministry is biblical. She teaches that in our ministries and businesses, God is the owner and He has chosen us as the CEO.







    Listen to the show and learn how God is the owner of your business and you are the CEO







    Your work is absolutely valuable and what you earn can be reinvested in Kingdom work. It is okay to be paid for the Kingdom work you do, those dreams and visions God has given you. Then you can give back to Him and reinvest the assets He entrusts to you back into His Kingdom work.







    I know what Katie has to share will encourage, inspire, and challenge you so listen in while I have a chat with Katie Hornor.

    Sarah Westfall: Finding Grace in the Unexpected Stories We Never Expected to Tell

    Sarah Westfall: Finding Grace in the Unexpected Stories We Never Expected to Tell

    When finding grace in the unexpected stories we never expected to tell, we discover something significant.







    After the devastating loss of her son, Sarah Westall had a raw conversation with God telling Him, "This is not my story--this is not the story I thought I would be telling, this is not the story I want to tell--God, please take it back!"







    But Grief Became Her Deepest Grace







    Sarah shares how even though she walked through indescribable pain, her grief became her deepest grace. We also learn what blessed her in the darkest moments and what others did for her that she will never forget. Finding grace in the unexpected story she never expected to tell opened doors for others to tell their stories, too.







    I know what she has to share will encourage, inspire, and challenge you so listen in while I have a chat with Sarah Westfall.







    Favorite Quotes from the show...







    "...for me, thinking that I could have this controlled--thinking that I could have this sense of ya know, that I could do the right things, be the right person, and get the outcomes that I thought could have stability and this easy quote/unquote life...""It's been a journey of re-writing the story that I thought I would be telling...""...I don't know what to say but I just hurt with you." (When Sarah was quoting what friends said to her that meant so much) --Sarah Westfall

    Sarah Westfall is a writer, speaker, creator & contributor to the devotional Be Still: Leaning into God When Everything Falls Apart, and Director of Community for hope*writers. She's wife to Ben, mama to five boys, and loves real conversation over a cup of good coffee. Or bad coffee if that’s all you have.







    She's a woman thirsty for God and for a life flavored by connection and authenticity. Sarah believes that we were created for God and for each other and that by telling our stories we find common ground. Her narrative hasn’t gone as planned, but in that hollowed-out space, she continues to find an invitation into deeper Love.

Great Topics and Guests!

Doris is a gracious, wonderful host! I love the diversity of the topics, and how each episode is full of hope and encouragement. She helps all women to see how God has gifted them, and how they can use those gifts for the glory of God and His Kingdom.

Peg Arnold ,

Our Gifts have a Purpose

Doris encourages all women to embrace their gifts and see God’s purpose in them. I enjoy the diversity of her topics and her enthusiasm!

Billy giggle ,

Surrender

Loved the episode with Dr. Chacko. I could so relate to the false assumptions behind the scenes as you project stability but are living in complete uncertainty until you make the choice to surrender it ALL to God. So good.
