[BONUS] A Few Peaceful Minutes With Ann Voskamp

Peaceful Minutes Ann Voskamp Waymaker

Hey, 4:13ers! I just finished recording a podcast episode with my good friend, Ann Voskamp, about her newest book, Waymaker: Finding the Way to the Life You’ve Always Dreamed Of. This episode is now available, and you can listen to it here, but our conversation was just so good that I broke it up into two parts.

In this bonus episode, you’ll hear clips from Ann as she shares that you can make it through a hard day, a hard year, or a hard season of life because Jesus is your waymaker. He’s not the way around your struggles or the way to avoid them … He’s the way through them, because He is the way the truth and the life (John 14:6).

You feel the grace. You feel the love. You feel like you’ve walked into a place where God is welcome and His presence is apparent in each person’s heart.

Well, that’s exactly what I felt at Grace Church this weekend as they hosted Fresh Grounded Faith St. Louis.

An Angel in Detroit – FGF Highlights, Flint, MI

I met an angel in a red car. Even if he wasn’t a real, bonafide, heavenly-being kind of angel, he was an angel—sent by God—for a heavenly mission!

Just one mile from the Detroit airport and one hour before our flight home from Fresh Grounded Faith Flint, our rental car began to shake. A loud scraping sound, like metal against asphalt, filled the interior of our minivan and panic began to rise! This was followed by the sound of shredded rubber flapping in the wind as my husband Phil maneuvered us onto the shoulder of the road.

God’s Power Showed Up – FGF Highlights, Buffalo, NY

Have you ever been to Niagara Falls? Oh, there is no place where I feel the sheer, unstoppable power of God like I do standing by the Horseshoe Falls. It roars with such intensity. In fact, the peak flow of water there was recorded at 6,004 cubic meters per second. Girl, we can’t even think that fast!

Yet, I will tell you this … the power of God at the Buffalo Fresh Grounded Faith event was also absolutely amazing!
