Our courage to embrace God-led risk tends to decrease when we focus on ourselves or our present circumstances. Our courage grows, however, when we focus on Christ and our next step of obedience. In this two-part episode, Jennifer first speaks with prolific suspense writer DiAnn Mills about a time when her husband lost his job then. In the second half of this episode, Jennifer and her husband Stephen discuss a time when the outcome of his obedience did not turn out as they’d hoped, but why, some seventeen years later, they’d now say everything turned out better than they could’ve imagined.
