Girls Night #177: Waiting Seasons: How to deal with discouragement and hold onto hope — with Caroline Schandel

Hey friends! Welcome to Girls’ Night! I’m so excited about today’s conversation. Today we’re re-sharing a conversation I had a few years ago with my dear friend, Caroline Schandel. If this is your first time meeting her, Caroline is a brilliant writer, speaker, and Bible teacher. She’s a woman I’ve looked up to for years — she’s taught me so much about who God is and about who I am because of who God is, and I am so so so happy we get to revisit this conversation!  In the episode we’re talking about waiting. How to trust God in the midst of long waiting seasons, how to tune into what He’s up to along the way, how God uses these seasons to transform us, and so much more. Friends, if you’re waiting on something today — a job, a spouse, an answer, a home, a move, a positive pregnancy test, or anything else — this episode is for you.  God has us. He’s taking care of us, and I’m praying that you walk away from this episode believing that more than ever.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

Each week on the podcast, one of Stephanie’s girlfriends comes over to chat about a topic that is central to our hearts as women. They talking about friendship, faith, relationships and self-confidence—as well as our calling in life and how to create a life we love! Each episode feels like that conversation that takes place around the kitchen island, late at night in your comfiest sweatpants, a La Croix in one hand and a slice of pizza in the other, where wisdom and laughter abound.
