Episode 43 - Living a life of Radical Trust

What if Jesus asked me to do something I didn't wanna do?

Welcome back! Today we have a very special guest joining AJ! You probably know Joanna Weaver and heard of her book “Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World” which sold over a million copies!


Listen to a beautiful discussion between Joanna and AJ about:  


  • Why and how Joanna wrote “Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World”.


  • One story from Joanna’s new book “Embracing Trust” about Reese Howell and how his trust affected his prayer life.


  • Life changing pivot points that made Joanna embrace and trust God. 


  • When God took AJ through a season of “Are you gonna trust me to give you the righteousness you need in this moment?”


  • Learning to see God’s love, His goodness and His ability to take the very worst that the world throws at us and work it for our good in his time and his way. 


… and MUCH MORE! 


“My lack of trust in the Lord was marginalizing my spiritual growth. And it was really hindering me from connecting intimately with the Lord.” - Arabah Joy


When we really know the character of God and we place our trust in that character, our lives and the choices we make are radically affected by that. Ultimately, we will try great things. 


“God has transformed me in the writing of this book. I don't know if he'll use it on anybody else, but I am not the same person that I was. And so my heart is so full. I pray, “God, please just open our eyes to your goodness even when we don't understand…” - Joanna Weaver.
