*A note to our listeners: this episode was recorded before all of the changes in our world due to the coronavirus. And yet, the topic of letting go of control is so necessary for today. Though we don't discuss current events, we hope today's show meets you where you're at. Be well, friends.*

Almost exactly twenty years ago, today’s guest, popular international speaker Carol Kent was thrust into a situation that made her feel as if her world was unraveling. Her son was arrested for murder, revealing just how little control we parents often have over our children’s lives. Though her life felt out of control, she found peace and security through surrender. She discovered God is big enough and strong enough and loving enough to carry her through she did or might someday face.
