[Solo] How I Knew My Dream & Clues to Uncover Yours || Merritt Onsa

It can be difficult to discern exactly what your dream is, especially if you are a multi-passionate woman with lots of other responsibilities. If you’re here, I’m guessing you already believe that God has something for you. I can’t give you a precise roadmap to find it, but I can tell you what the path looked like for me, relate to you in your uncertainty, and remind you to look for the breadcrumbs God is leaving for you along the way.

[Solo] A Call for Christian Woman to be Part of the Solution || Merritt Onsa

This message is for the passionate, ambitious Christian woman wondering what role she can play in helping to heal the brokenness of our world, highlighted so vividly by the 2020 U.S. presidential election.
