222. When Your Worries and Whys Need More Than Temporary Relief (with Lisa Whittle)

Powered by RedCircle

We don’t have many repeat guests on the podcast, but I was so happy to have Lisa Whittle back in the studio to talk about her new book God Knows: When Your Worries and Whys Need More Than Temporary Relief!

This book is all about finding rest and comfort in God, and I just really love how Lisa’s heart points people to Jesus through her work. Lisa and I dive deep into her trilogy of books, Jesus Over EverythingThe Hard Good, and now God Knows, which, together, offer a full picture of living a spiritual life.

Lisa’s insights on trust, faith, and finding rest in God are incredibly powerful and practical. They aren’t just theoretical; they give you actual ways to practice resting in God in your everyday life, and I strongly encourage you to grab copies of her books! The newest book especially will allow you to soak up what it means to live with those two simple words: God knows.
