The One with Renee Swope

Renee Swope, former Proverbs 31 Ministries Radio Cohost + Content Strategist, is the author of A Confident Heart: How to Stop Doubting Yourself and Live in the Security of God's PromisesIn our interview with Renee, she opens up about the risks she has taken in her life in order to pursue radical obedience.

On the podcast this week, Renee tells us all about her 21 years at Proverbs 31, writing her first book, A Confident Heart, adopting her third child from Ethiopia, and more.

She shares how God helped her begin facing fear and doubt, how she became willing to be invisible in order to go where God was sending her, and that she now knows we just have to trust when we feel God sending us in a direction that doesn’t make sense from our point of view.

We were impacted by the way Renee highlights how purpose is revealed through community.

We hope you’ll listen and take notes because this is such great practical advise and wisdom!
