134. An Unexpected Divine Detour With Lori Ann Wood

by | Feb 27, 2024 | Podcast

You are in for a blessing today! In this episode I chat with the lovely Lori Ann Wood, who is a newer online friend of mine. She’s an author, speaker, and an advocate for heart health as she walks through her own health journey. She has an incredible story to tell, and she shares some of it with me in today’s episode. Consequently, our conversation inspired me, challenged me, and pointed me to the wonderful hope we have in Jesus, and I believe it will do the same for you.

I say often, we each have something we’re walking through or dealing with, so whatever that is for you, I believe it’s no accident you are listening today. God has something special in store just for you here.
