#193: Watch for God with Vivian Mabuni

“Would you just help me trust you, Lord? I want to want to give it all up to you.” If you’ve prayed these prayers, you’re not alone.

We know that the center of God's will is the best place to be, but surrender is easier said than done. A host of hurdles, from busyness and bitterness to complacency and control, can prevent us from moving where He directs. In her latest book, Vivian Mabuni provides an authentic look at what it means to willingly risk saying yes to whatever God asks--and highlights a practical path to the deeper joy of a yielded life.

Vivian Mabuni is a national speaker and author with a passion to share the hope and life found through intimacy with God. With 30 years of ministry experience on staff w/ Cru, she loves teaching about the Bible and providing practical applications. Author of Warrior In Pink and Open Hands, Willing Heart, she lives in Southern California with her husband, Darrin, and their kids. She loves coffee, post-its, sushi and shoes.
