So much of the clutter in our lives is caused by avoiding decision. As the clutter continues to build, we are flooded with choices, and that can leave us feeling overwhelmed.

Listen in as Kathi and Nicki give us some hard truths that can help us develop our decision muscle, including:

Flooded: The 5 Best Decisions to Make When Life is Hard and Doubt is Rising


Through the painful loss of her mom to a brain tumor and her brother to suicide, Nicki Koziarz has learned that if doubt is left undealt with, it can cause the presence of unbelief to flood our lives, to the point that faith becomes unrecognizable. Hard circumstances often stir something so destructive in a soul: doubt.  In the midst of her pain, Nicki looked through the lens of the biblical account of Noah and discovered five decisions a person can make to help deflect the destruction of doubt.

When you are wrestling with doubt and fighting back hopelessness, Flooded will help you:

  • Quiet the fear that God won’t come through by discovering the difference between wishful thinking and biblical hope.
  • Resist the urge to control the uncontrollable by finding peace in between the problem and the promise.
  • Find the familiar faithfulness of God in His Word when it feels like nothing is normal and everything is falling apart.

The reality of hard times holds a decision for each of us to find hope. And the decision to find it is yours. But you don’t have to do it alone. It’s time to rise above doubt, together.
