June 13, 2017

Episode 12 of Spirituality for Normal People features an interview with Lisa Whittle. Lisa is a speaker and the author of six books. From her official bio: "Her love runs deep to see people pursue Jesus for life, grow deep roots of faith, and walk strong in the midst of a world that so often seems to have gone crazy."

What a great conversation! Lisa has incredible passion and straightforward honesty. Here is just some of what we talked about...

  • How to deal with weariness and worry
  • Moving from panic and fear to preparation and strength
  • It is not about how you feel, it is about what you choose
  • Choosing to love, obey, and follow
  • Warrior boots as a symbol of walking in strength
  • Pushing back on the idea of “brave”
  • Receiving the power and strength of Christ
  • Reading through the Bible continuously.
  • Listening in Prayer
  • Taking the pressure off for our prayers to be a particular way
  • The power of simpler, shorter prayers
