My guest this week on the By His Grace podcast is Kristen Welch the founder of Mercy House and Fair Trade Friday. Kristen is a wife, mom, author, and Jesus loving world changer. On this show, we talk about how God wrecked her in the best possible way when she went to Kenya in 2007, and how this changed not only her life, and the lives of her family, but the lives of women across the world. The core mission of Mercy House Global to provide maternity homes in Kenya, aid pregnant girls living in extreme poverty, and provide dignified work through Fair Trade Friday.
Kristen shares how her faith has been stretched in building a non-profit and walking through the unknown. God continues to call Kristen out into deeper waters through her work with displaced immigrants coming to Houston. Kristen’s surrendered heart, faith, and obedience to God’s call is inspiring.
We conclude this episode by discussing her latest book, Made to Move Mountains: How God Uses Our Dreams and Disasters to Accomplish the Impossible.
“Life is an incredible journey with ups and downs. We soar, struggle, scale and stumble, and often stand at the edge of cliffs, afraid to step into the unknown, unsure of where we will land. But instead of running away, we are called by God to stand firm, muster up what faith we can, and take a step. Because we were made to move mountains.
In this inspiring book, Kristen Welch calls you to step out in faith and climb the mountain in front of you–not because you are good enough or adequate or able, but because God makes a way where there is no way. With heartbreaking and hopeful personal stories, Scripture, and questions for contemplation, she draws you out of fear and into holy confidence, showing you that the mountain in your path was put there on purpose so that you could exercise–and grow–your faith.”
