Malinda Fugate and I talk about what happens when a calling sends you in an unexpected direction, experiencing God’s love tangibly, the mixed bag of singleness, and adjusting standards that don’t apply to us.

Malinda serves as the Children’s Education Director at a church in Southern California. She attended Azusa Pacific University and worked behind the scenes in Los Angeles Christian radio. Her writing includes The Other Three Sixteens, Bible Time for Active Kids, copywriting, faith-based stage and screenplays, and co-producing A Single Girl’s Guide To, a blog and web series.

You can follow Malinda on Instagram @malthewriter and on Twitter @malthestar and her book, The Other 3:16s, is available wherever you buy books.
