Our guest joins us today to talk honestly about losing everything that once defined her and how God used unexpected opportunities, like working at Orchard House, where Louisa May Alcott wrote Little Women, to spark a journey of working through her grief and encountering the all-sufficient love of Christ. Be reassured that God will meet us in the midst of our mess. Let’s learn to look to Him for help, comfort and strength.
More women than ever have control of capital and are making financial decisions.

Take control of your financial future and start managing your money in ways that honor God and allow you to do good with the resources He provides.
