What if it’s not the hard roads that slay us? But rather, it’s the unmet expectations of what we thought the road would be that actually takes us down? Well, if you’re facing obstacle after obstacle, or if you’re smack dab in the middle of your own impossible, then today’s guest will give you the fresh perspective you need.
Best-selling author and my friend, Ann Voskamp, will help you discover that finding the way through is actually about finding a way of life. She’ll give you six habits to help you get through any hard day or season, and they’ll lead you to what your soul needs most.
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).
Don’t you just sometimes get tired of dealing with hard stuff?!
You know … strained relationships, difficult bosses, constant conflict, illness, financial stress … hard stuff!
Our hands can droop and our knees can wobble. We can look over our shoulder and think about turning back.

When I hung up a few minutes later, I reached out to put my arm around Phil’s waist. As I did, I slipped my hand down and patted him on his—well, you know. We were newlyweds, after all!
As I did, I heard him say, “Jennifer, what are you doing?”
