In this episode I talk with Ginny Owens about her new book, 𝑺𝒊𝒏𝒈𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒊𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑫𝒂𝒓𝒌: 𝑭𝒊𝒏𝒅𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝑯𝒐𝒑𝒆 𝒊𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑺𝒐𝒏𝒈𝒔 𝒐𝒇 𝑺𝒄𝒓𝒊𝒑𝒕𝒖𝒓𝒆, and how we can carry hope with us even when our story turns out differently than we hoped.
As a blind singer who sings in literal darkness, Ginny wants to share the encouraging message that anyone can learn to find a melody in dark and lonely seasons. Ginny will inspire you to find your own way to weave music into your story.
She will also share:

Learn a new song.
“Just having another song to turn to when the noise of doubt, pain and frustration gets overwhelming in our heads.”
Praying through the words and asking the Holy Spirit to reveal what the deeper meaning is.
“The more you read the scriptures the more you see in it.”
Hearing God’s words and using our words to talk to him about what He is saying to us.
“When you can memorize it then you can meditate on it.”
She will also share how we can immerse ourselves in the songs that God sings over us, as well as the story of her life and how God’s word both informs and changes our own lives.
I know that this message will encourage you. Share it with a friend
