How a Health Scare Led to God’s Calling with Alana Dawson

On this week’s episode I’m honored to introduce you to my podcasting mentor, Alana Dawson. Alana has such an amazing and candid story about how God got her attention after she had a life-threatening pulmonary embolism a few months after she experienced a miscarriage. Because of the miscarriage, she decided to give up on God’s call on her life. But after her health scare she saw how good God actually was to her because of what she now understood to be the miracle of her girls’ births. Through this process she decided to once again be obedient to the call He had given her and soon after started a podcast. Alana has a passion to help other women discover and fulfill their calling. She is also a military wife and mom to two girls and shares in this interview how her family manages the long periods away from her husband. I know you’ll be blessed by her story.
