What is a God Dare? Will it be scary? How can I be sure that it’s actually God speaking to me?

I can’t WAIT for you to get to know Kate. She speaks to us today about letting Jesus pick your future and what that looks like. She’s down to earth and blows her own cover on some pretty personal things along her journey. Kate wrote her book, The God Dare, for anyone who feels they have lost their purpose. She hopes that readers will be reminded that all God ever needs are willing vessels.

Kate Battistelli is an author, speaker, former actress/singer and mother of Contemporary Christian recording artist Francesca Battistelli. Kate’s goal is to see you be all God has created you to be, and she truly believes each of us is here to change the world. She is a natural encourager and believes in your ability to change the world, even if you don’t! She lives in Franklin, she’s been married to her husband Mike for thirty-four years and loves being near her family.

WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT:

  • how God gave Kate the family she longed for in an unexpected way

  • loving the Lord for who He is, not what He gives

  • advice for parents of one child, but long for more

  • Kate’s struggle with anxiety and what’s been working for her

  • the story behind her book The God Dare

  • what we can learn from Ruth’s God dare

  • the reality that accepting a God dare will be uncomfortable and scary

  • how to differentiate a true God dare from your own thoughts

  • advice for moms who are currently in the process of parenting younger children
