Episode 414: TAYA on Worshiping in Pain and in Waiting

What a gift it is to have Taya in the podcast studio. You know her voice from many of your favorite Hillsong UNITED Worship songs. And now she has a debut album, TAYA, that is absolutely stunning. Our conversation about prayer, Jesus, and our love for Italy, was so life giving. What a great way to kick off the weekend with this fun bonus Friday episode!
