Overcoming Fear with Faith in Action with Jodi Miller

Episode 391, Aired Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021

Jodi Miller has been on the show before and talked about her experiences as a textile designer and experience designer. Last time she was on she talked about a red carpet event she created to highlight regular people on the street. 

God has been using Jodi to love on others and felt called to change direction and start doing art full time. She has taken classes to build her skills and confidence. As she has made this pivot she also changed her body and her mindset. 

Jodi and I started meeting in January and talking about her goals and plans each week. She asked me to hold her accountable, we pray, and I serve as a mirror for her. She had made the plan to quit her part time job in 2022, but God had other plans. Jodi did not put up a fight rather she embraced the call and she put a new plan in action. 

If you feel you are being called out of one thing and into another this episode is perfect for you. It is super scary to do this but Jodi attacked it and when doors opened she ran through them. The mirror and reminders of who God clearly called her to be was my small role in her journey. I am as excited as Jodi is to see her working through weekly battles, some small and others really big.
