Episode 9: Being Truly Willing with Christian Taylor

Christian Taylor, Co-host of the Holy Post Podcast weaves stories. In this episode, she shares tales of her life’s adventures and how they led her to jump whole-heartedly into creating a documentary (which she had never done before) about a French girl’s celebration, along with many other characters, of D-Day in Normandy–All because she was truly willing.


Episode Highlights:

  • “That journey in itself – being married for 28 years, having children – really stretched me.” 17:44
  • “When I feel the Lord is speaking to me, I move forward in faith knowing that He will continue either opening the doors or He will close them.” 25:35
  • When we are in the vine and we are producing fruit, what happens? He cuts us. He prunes us. It’s painful. What happens to a tree that doesn’t bear any fruit? He destroys it, right? Cuts it down. Also painful. Both are painful. What pain are we going to choose? 36:10
