PART 3: If This Is My New Normal, What's Next? Choose Faith Over Fear
Are you wondering where is God in this pandemic and why he'd let such a horrible thing like this happen? Do you wonder if God even exists? Maybe you turned your back on him long ago because if he was a good God...  Listen, I get it! I haven't always been a God girl. In fact, in my 20's I swore at the Bible and walked away. In Choose Faith Over Fear, Debbie uncovers the truth about her faith. She recalls that nights in her teens, in that cinder block basement bedroom, when she'd cry out to him, not really knowing if he would hear the pain of her heart. As an adult, she realized that through her faith, God answered her prayers.  This is the last part of a 3 part series, If This is My New Normal What's Next? Choose Faith Over Fear!  Be sure to grab the last two tools to complete your Thrive Toolkit. Because we don't want to just survive this pandemic, we want to THRIVE through it!
