Compelled by Love: How to Know God in a Deeper Way in Ministry

Episode 188 - Kathie Slusser

Growing up, sometimes we have misunderstandings about God. For Kathie Slusser, hers was that it wasn’t important to feel that God loved her. As she went through life, she learned that this idea wasn’t true. Knowing God’s love for her was the first step in learning to love others.

Kathie has worked in many ways, from teaching, to helping a private investigator, to serving in ministry. She now counsels those in ministry and makes curriculums on spiritual and emotional health. As she has learned to accept God’s love, she has been able to love others in a deeper way. Through love, she can bring hope to those who need it.
