Your Hope-Filled Perspective with Dr. Michelle Bengtson podcast

Mar 4, 2021

Episode Summary:
In this episode, we’re talking about what it looks like to jump out of our comfort zone, have faith and dare with God. My guest today, is Kate Battistelli, mother of DOVE and GRAMMY award-winning Christian recording artist Francesca Battistelli, and author of The God Dare.

Quotables from the episode:

  • A “God Dare” is always too big for us—we can’t do it on our own without God’s help.
  • The impossible is God’s zone.
  • A “God Dare” often makes no earthly sense. It’s only after the fact that we can look back and see the dots connected.
  • God will equip you for whatever He calls you to.

Scripture References:

  • Hebrews 11:1 “Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.”
  • Genesis 15:5-6 “Then the Lord took Abram outside and said to him, ‘Look up into the sky and count the starts if you can. That’s how many descendants you will have!’ And Abram believed the Lord, and the Lord counted him as righteous because of his faith.”

About Kate Battistelli:

Kate Battistelli is living proof God can and will use anyone if they’re willing. Kate experienced infertility, miscarriage, an abortion at age 18, and four failed adoption attempts, which all wreaked havoc in her life. Back in the ‘80’s, Kate had a life-changing experience as a young actress in New York City, going from understudy to starring as Anna in the Broadway National Tour of The King and I opposite Yul Brynner for more than 1,000 performances. Kate and her husband laid down their careers and the Broadway theatre in answer to their first “God dare” and moved out of New York City and into a life of homeschooling and a home business. As their daughter Francesca grew and began expressing her gifts in music and songwriting, they realized there was a far bigger purpose in leaving their careers than they could’ve imagined. Kate is the mother of DOVE and GRAMMY award-winning Christian recording artist Francesca Battistelli.
