#82: Saying 'Yes' to Scary Things with Melinda Simmons

Meet Melinda:

Melinda is a wife, mom to three and a worship leader.  She enjoys using humor and the gracious love of God to navigate her crazy, beautiful life.  She's learning how to step into scary things she'd rather not do.  Like this interview.  She didn't want to do this interview. 

What we chat about:

  • trusting God is at work in you even you're questioning yourself
  • breath prayers
  • how she's learning to fight her tendency to run when she's scared
