Feathers Season 3 Episode 3 with Katrina Ryder: False Paths, Waiting, and Rejection


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.

We don’t want the waiting to stop if we don’t actually have the strength yet. – Katrina Ryder

If we stopped waiting before we had all the strength we need, we’d still be weak – Katrina Ryder

We’ll pray this waiting process will continue so we can get as strong as we need to be. – Katrina Ryder

Grow us up. – Katrina Ryder

We think when he says ‘pursue this’, that thing we’re pursuing he’ll give us. – Katrina Ryder

When God sends Abraham to sacrifice Isaac, he’s telling him to do something he has absolutely no intention of making him do. It’s a faith exercise.  – Katrina Ryder

It’s a faith exercise to get his people to say I’ll do whatever crazy mess you want me to do. – Katrina Ryder

Sometimes I think of this story and say, ‘Lord, are you sending me on a false path?’ and He says, ‘If I am, will you trust me?’ – Katrina Ryder



But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
