045: Standing Strong in Every Situation with Alli Worthington | The Living Room

“God is calling the women of this generation to partner with Him in bringing about His purposes!”

In this episode, Alli Worthington shares from her book, Standing Strong: A Woman’s Guide to Overcoming Adversity and Living with Confidenceabout partnering with God in accomplishing His purposes. 

Through her own journey of learning to hear God’s voice and experiencing the pain of disobedience as well as the joy of following His leading, Alli has learned to trust God in the unknown and step out in obedience and faith.

Do you hear God’s whisper? God is calling you to stand strong because you are meant for more, my friend! It’s not about the kind of work He calls you to or how impressive or small it may seem, because whatever He calls us to is Kingdom work.
