Do you remember the first time you read The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe? Aslan the Lion ROARED! What might have been scary for some was, for me, a powerful testimony to the Power of God speaking forth! Even His whisper can strike like a sweeping ROAR...
What does this have to do with www.AlliWorthington.com's appearance as a guest on Bott Radio Network Encounter? That's the image that came to mind as I looked at her new book, Fierce Faith.
Worry. Fear. Anxiety. -- LIFE. It can all come rushing at us from every side. And yet, God tells us to trust Him. He's got this (whatever 'this' might be). Alli Worthington has walked the journey herself so she speaks from her own path.

Bart Millard, the lead singer of Mercy Me, joined us on Encounter Bott Radio Network. While we didn't ask him to sing, we did ask him to open his heart a bit. He shared the story behind the hit song, I Can Only Imagine. Born from a place of redeemed pain and wounds, the #1 song touched countless hearts as God worked through some incredible circumstances to bring the message to light. While you can see the movie at theaters in mid-March, the book is available now. As Bart shared, he was able to testify so much more to God's grace through it!

It's hard to keep the joy in when you are speaking with Liz Curtis Higgs. For years, the wonderful woman has used her gift of writing and speaking to connect deeply with the hearts of women (and many men too). Even in her (sometimes brutal) self-honesty, you will want to journey with her to enjoy the love of God even more deeply.

Liz returned to the Bott Radio Network Encounter airwaves last month to share one of her newest books, 31 Proverbs to Light Your Path. Listen to the interview to hear some insights from the Book of Proverbs. These verses were chosen by hundreds of women seeking to know Christ and to go with Him into the world. From a touch of grey to a touch of humility learned over a ring, you'll be blessed.

Although her father published her first book, My Dog Chloe, for her (with 50 copies when she was only 8 years old), Dee Brestin marks her writing career as truly starting over thirty years ago when she began Proverbs and Parables for The Fisherman Bible Studies.  Luci Shaw, the editor, insisted on  “no editorial content.” However, because Dee couldn’t resist giving a few editorial comments, Luci told her to go write a book on friendship! Dee then wrote The Friendships of Women, which Focus on the Family decided to feature. That event marked the beginning of a writing adventure!

Dee joined us on Bott Radio Network Encounter to discuss a new study, He Calls You Beautiful, based on the Song of Songs (Song of Solomon). Click below to listen to the 12 minute interview as we discuss this new study. You can also follow this link to her web site and engage with a multitude of resources available there!
