Karen Wright Marsh - author, speaker & ministry leader - joins us to chat about age-old (literally) truths, trials and timeless messages that inform today, Whatever you're going through in life, people throughout time have lived it too. A wayward kid? St. Augustine was just that. Depression & melancholy? Martin Luther struggled most of his life. Stressed by performance standards? St Benedict dealt with the same. Feeling alone - even abandoned by God? Mother Teresa's life has a few things to share - as do many other "brothers and sisters in faith" that held tight to Truth's life-line that is steadily available throughout the ages. "You ask for the ancient paths, the well-trodden ones, and then you learn to walk in those and you find rest," Karen shares. She then encourages us as she does her students "through these stories, to look back and find mentors from the past." We hope you will enjoy this delightful and inspiring carpool chat.
