  1. This interview was incredible because it was so full of truth and I love how she expressed it as “having learned it the hard way”. Like her, I took it for granted that I was serving godly people because they had the title of preacher or Bible teacher. I not only did not bother to discern them I didn’t even pray before I jumped in eager to help. Little did I know that I had gotten into bed with scorpions- people who were full of jealousy, insecurity and greed & a win-win situation was never on their mind. They took the benefit of your money and expertise and then set out to dispose of you. It’s a lesson in prayer and submission that I will never ever forget. And like Chonda said, money can ruin everything if you don’t have the character integrity behind it. And I don’t know where it could ever fit in but if I could do anything as a Speaker to keep people away from so-called prosperity gospel churches (who dangle dreams in front of the flock just beginning to spread their wings) I will.

    • Thank you so much for your comment! We’re sorry to hear about what you went through, but glad that this episode with Chonda resonated with you. Thanks for listening to the podcast!
