10 Apr Engaging in Your Calling – Kathy Maskell
Kathy Maskell shared this moving message at Cause Con 2018 in Kansas City. Kathy encourages us to keep our eyes and ears open to the moments where God interrupts our lives to show us what He’s doing and how we can partner with Him. Sharing from her personal story and the stories of Gideon and Peter from the Bible, Kathy talks about how we can allow God to use us even when we feel weak, yielding to Him, and letting Him be our strength to fulfill our calling.
