    Relentless: Finding God Even When He Feels (Radio) Silent with Michele Cushatt

    Relentless: Finding God Even When He Feels (Radio) Silent with Michele Cushatt

    How do you hold onto faith when faith itself seems lost? Does the presence of pain cause you to question the presence of God? If you have ever wrestled these questions, this emotional and powerful episode is here to remind you of the truth that even in your hardest days, you are not alone.
     
    In today’s episode, Mary talks with author, podcast host, and three time cancer survivor - Michele Cushatt - as the two dig deep into Michele’s book, Relentless: The Unshakable Presence of a God who Never Leaves. With her signature storytelling and biblical insight, Michele's third book is a message born of deep personal struggle and the transformational discovery that God is indeed with us.

     
    In this episode, Michelle and Mary speak vulnerably about what happens when it feels like God goes radio silent in the midst of illness, pain, and struggle - those moments where we want to be able to hear Him the loudest, but it feels like we can’t hear Him at all. They discuss:
    Other ways that He might be speaking to us - ways that we might not automatically see; The raw realities of sitting in wounds while searching for healing; and, Most importantly, the idea that you are never alone.  
    After listening, you will be invited to:
    Search for Divine presence in your own everyday story; Be comforted in knowing that even though you may not have seen the last of hard days, that you are never alone; and, Reminded of the extraordinary theme woven throughout Scripture that God is with us.
    For the truth-seekers, those drowning in impossible questions, and those who find themselves swallowed up by darkness, this is a must-listen episode.

Listen I am an avid podcast listener and I absolutely love Mary Marantz (and cant wait for Dirt to come out later this year! She has the most valuable nuggets in her interviews!

Authentic conversations!

I downloaded this podcast because I’ve followed this fellow West Virginian since I started WV Living and WV Weddings magazines. After having Mary as a keynote speaker during one of our WV Weddings Extravaganzas, I’ve been drawn to her creativity, grace, and authentic conversations—and this podcast far exceeded my expectations! One of my goals is to live a more graceful life, and this podcast is the inspiration I needed! Keep up the great work, Mary!
