Girl Talk with Kari Jobe

Last week, residents at our Nashville home were excited to experience an exceptional performance and testimony by singer/songwriter Kari Jobe. Kari Jobe found common ground with the girls as she quickly stated upfront that she just wanted to be real and kick her shoes off. Kari was tearful as she genuinely communicated her heart for our residents. The girls were deeply encouraged as she sung about the love of God. Kari also shared her own testimony, reminding the residents that the Lord always brings ‘beauty from ashes’. She challenged the girls to be patient with the healing process and to allow their emotions to line up with the truth of who God says they are. Kari closed the morning with prayer and then took some time to answer a few questions. Kari’s time was so sweet and we are looking forward to seeing her in the future!

Here is what a few of the girls had to say about Kari Jobe’s visit.

Grace said, “I was really impacted by Kari’s music and lyrics. I felt God calming the storm of uncertainty and fear inside me with His peace.”

Nakea said, “Kari did not hide anything from us and her smile made my day. She was so real! Her music touched me and so many others.”

Ashley said, “I have never heard of Kari Jobe before, but she is amazing. I was really encouraged by her visit as I wait on God to turn my ashes into something beautiful.”
