In this episode, I interview Katrina Ryder.
Katrina is a wife to an elementary school music teacher and a mother of three kids, ages 10, 8, and 6. She is a former missionary and English teacher, who loves writing, editing, teaching Bible study and sharing her stories with others.
Katrina shares the story of God calling her husband to pursue a job as a worship pastor, only to have him redirect their plans.
