Episode 444: Christy Nockels on Pioneering, Contentment, and How It’s Ok to Yell at God

Oh it’s always such a treat to sit down with one of my favorite voices, worship leaders, and friends- Christy Nockels. Today we talk all about taking care of our voices, how to know when it’s time to start mentoring versus building in relationships, and how sometimes God calls us to pioneer things like Jesus did. Go out and listen to Christy’s new album This is the Hour this weekend! Y’all are going to love it!
