This week on Real Talk with Rachael, I’m talking with Julia Sadler, who recently released her exciting new book, “Pray Big Things: The Surprising Life God Has for You When You’re Bold Enough to Ask”. After three miscarriages, Julia, along with her husband, decided to pray boldly and very specifically to change the course of their lives. After going through that experience, she wants to share with the rest of us how we can access that power through prayer and what the Bible says about prayer itself so we can pray boldly into our own lives.
We also get into the big topic of how to deal with our grief when God says “No” to your big prayers. She discusses how to go to Him with your feelings honestly and how not to be afraid to share your heartbreak, and even anger, with God. She provides a great biblical reminder to us that we can feel hope after grief.
Julia Sadler, LPC, is a reality star from TLC’s “Rattled” who has seen God do immeasurably more than anything she could hope or imagine. After suffering three miscarriages in one year, God blessed her and her husband, Ryan, with triplets. Their story of faith, prayer, and evangelism in the midst of heartache has encouraged thousands around the world.
