Finding Joy in Our Messy Life with Carole Leathem

Today on Redeemed & Restored I’m excited to introduce you to Carole Leathem, author, speaker and former pastors wife of 30 years. Carole shares how God redeemed & restored the sudden end to her ministry as a pastors wife. For the last five years she found herself on the other side of the pew and God is using her story in amazing ways. Her book “Finding Joy in my Messy Life” is a book you will want to read if nothing else so you can be in encouragement to others who are struggling with similar trials.

You can connect with Carole, and purchase Finding Joy in my Messy Life on her website.

Welcome, I'm Athena!

I start each day by tithing the first hour to the Lord in prayer, reading the word, doing word studies of the Text, and asking God how I can live out what I am reading. This time is usually met with meditation on devotionals that are usually written by dead guys like Oswald Chambers, CS Lewis, Charles Spurgeon, AW Tozer, and Andrew Murray.

Right now, I’m reading a daily devotional with a friend called Tozer on the Almighty God for my focus for the day. It's fun to see individually what pulls us in to spur one another on to good deeds!

The Bible is filled with action steps to walk out in practical and intentional ways. This sets my day in motion to walk it out! I hope this is your heart, too.

Consider this a personal invitation to join me in this journey!
