I’d love to hear from you!

When Courtney was in her early twenties, she was in a church membership class, where the gospel was being explained and she kept raising her hand, saying, "I chose God. I know; I was there..." Can you relate with the sense that you were the one who chose God? What if your story is actually one of God taking the initiative? And what if that was actually really good news? 

I'm so grateful to have Courtney Doctor returning to the Live Like It's True podcast, where we're in the second part of our Sarah series—considering the story of Sarah found in Genesis 12-21 which started with God choosing her little family of two and promising to make of them a great nation.

Guest: Courtney Doctor

Bible Passage: Genesis 12:1-4

Freebie: Praying the Promises
