Strong Women

Feb 21, 2024

When most of their children were grown and out of the house, God called Becky Spencer and her husband to care for children in need in Africa—over 9,000 miles away from their home in Kansas. Becky joins Sarah to share her testimony of following God’s lead and being met by His faithfulness every step of the way. Her testimony of choosing to love before you feel loving, experiencing God’s restorative forgiveness, and following His call to take compassionate action in ministry is an encouraging and provoking example. 


When God Comes Down Like Rain, Overcoming Obstacles to Faith by Becky Spencer (coming soon)

If you’ve listened for a while, you’ve probably heard me talk about the Colson Fellows program and what a transformational experience it has been in my life and the lives of many fellow believers. The Colson Fellows program was designed for men and women with full, busy lives. The program combines theological, spiritual, and worldview formation through a carefully curated combination of readings, daily devotions, live webinars, and monthly meetings with your peers. Interesting but wondering if you have the time or what it takes to complete the program? I assure you, it’s well worth your investment and has been completed by many women in all stages and seasons of life. Interested in learning more?
