    91: From Adversity to Purpose through Faith

    91: From Adversity to Purpose through Faith

    Imagine finding hope in the most challenging moments of your life, and transforming that hope into a purpose that reaches beyond yourself. That's exactly what my double cousin, Natalie Smalley, did. In a time of intense personal struggle, Natalie discovered the profound difference faith and an in-depth study of the Bible can make. Together, we dive deep into the spiritual discipline of Bible study, focusing on the powerful message in 1 Corinthians 2:6-9, revealing God’s plans for us all, no matter our pasts. Natalie's inspiring journey of healing, and her father's words, “don’t live beneath your privileges” sparked a transformative power in her prayer and study life.

    Natalie Smalley's book I Have Breast Cancer, Now What?: A Cancer Support Tool which is mentioned in this episode.

SandyCoop ,

Lyvita is a breath of fresh air!

I just discovered this podcast and I already love it. Lyvita is so joyful and encouraging. I love her emphasis on Scripture and spiritual disciplines. I can’t wait to hear more.

Little Bevo ,

Episode 74 and Episode 80

Episode 74: Lyvita has a winsome style and obviously cares deeply about her listeners. I enjoyed episode 74 on setting goals. I’m a big believer in setting goals, so it was good to hear the exchange of ideas. I liked the guest, Rosemarie Downer, as well. Rosemarie, may you keep writing books as long as you can! Episode 80: I was pleased to be her guest, and we had a great time - I think that shows through on the podcast. Lyvita drew out some key points with her great questions.

KDGWJD ,

Growth in Christ

I appreciate Lyvita’s passion to keep us all connected to Jesus and growing in His likeness. l have very much enjoyed the conversations I have had with Lyvita on this podcast. She asks great questions and is clearly pressing in close to Jesus which she encourages us to as well.
