110: How to Take Your Next Steps Into God's Calling [Summer Throwback Series]

Do you have a dream or an idea about something God is calling you to do, but you’re not sure how to step out into the unknown? 

Often we sense God calling us to something new, something different… but we are afraid to take those first steps, especially when we don’t know what the outcome is going to be.

In our final episode of our Summer Throwback Series, you’ll hear from several of our past guests and find out how they were able to take courageous steps into something new. You’ll hear about their real life experiences as well as glean wisdom and hear their recommendations for how you can take your first steps.


Featured Guests on this episode:


I did not include this one in the clips, but I want to point you to Episode 93 if you are experiencing hesitation or doubts about pursuing a dream or calling God has given you. In that episode, I talk about 5 obstacles to pursuing your purpose and give you some encouragement around getting started.


Key Quotes from this throwback episode:

“I don’t think you can ever lead well without wise counsel.” - Rachel Pellegrino

“I needed to wrestle, because otherwise I wouldn’t really need Him.” - Merritt Onsa


“A lot of people ‘kinda’ want to do something, but if you are not all in on it, it’s not going to happen.” - Jocelyn Sams


“If you have that tug on your heart or that feeling that you need to do ‘a thing’, but you’re not sure how… God already has the plan, He already has the solutions.” - Stefanie Gass
