Strong Women

Dec 6, 2023

Imagine if you got everything you ever wanted. Would it satisfy your soul? After experiencing great success in her athletic career, today’s wise-beyond-her-years guest realized that only Jesus could satisfy her soul and give her a firm foundation amid the ups and downs of life. Grace Lyons-Turk is the former captain of the Oklahoma University women’s softball team and a three-time Women’s College World Series champion. Rather than finding her identity in her athletic skills, accomplishments, or career, Grace has used her platform to make much of the Lord and point others to Him—from fellow teammates to the watching world. Listen in and hear how surrendering to the Lord and finding our identity in Him is the pathway to unshakeable joy.
