Episode 71: Cherie Wagner- The Power Scripture Holds
To kickoff Season 2, Cherie Wagner is the perfect guest. Cherie Wagner, a fellow Bible nerd, is a speaker, author, and the creator of Neue Thing. Her passion for God's word shows in the clear, straightforward way she preaches and communicates the scriptures. We discuss why its is important to read the Bible on a daily basis, how the Lord speaks to us through His word, and the transformation that can be found in reading and applying Scripture. We close with practical advice on how to make the Bible a part of your daily life.
