Encountering Jesus Personally
When He Calls You by Name

Episode 14 | April 1, 2024
Lisa Brenninkmeyer and Laura Phelps

Join us for Episode 14, in our seven-week series, The Psalms of Ascent: A Lenten Pilgrimage. In this week’s episode, Lisa and Laura celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, by unpacking John 20:1118. If you struggle with your identity and believe the lie that you have to earn God’s love, we pray you will listen to Lisa and Laura’s conversation with an open heart. Grab your Bible and join us as we stand beside Mary Magdalene at the open tomb. You won’t be disappointed!
