SO Good. I left my 20yr very successful career of working with & building programs for the homeless in May of 2019. And have been STRUGGLING in finding my purpose. It has also brought me closer to God as I have been forced to slow down & hear HIS voice and see what HE has planned for me. I have been amazed at how he has provided for me and my son despite earning less than 30% of what I was - and yet we have not gone without anything🥰

Pastor Craig, chef Mike here from Dry Gulch. I go to the Owasso campus now. I did the workout, it did kick my butt, however, I can't jump off my knees. 🥴 I will add it to my rotation. Your podcast is one of my top three. thank you

This is such an outstanding message. one thing that I would lead people to see is that the struggle is one of the opportunities. Everything we are presented with has the ability to be molded and to mold us. That is what an opportunity is.
