118: Everyday Faith with Miah Daniels | Carrie Robaina

Miah Daniels is a friend, woman of God, wife, and steadfast mother to four children. Today listeners will learn what it looked like for Miah and her family to leave a corporate job so they could pursue full time occupational ministry. There is so much to her story, we can’t wait for you to hear!

Introduction to Miah Daniels (1:30)

Carrie and Miah connected with each other through ministry work in the Minneapolis area several years ago. Miah is 43 years old and when she first met her husband, they knew almost immediately that they were going to get married. It was a beautiful time for Miah and her future husband to seek the Lord on what He wanted to do through their relationship.

A Restless Heart (2:30)

In the beginning of Miah and her husband Tim’s marriage, a small business was started and it flourished to the point they were able to purchase a beautiful home in the suburbs of Minneapolis. Miah and her husband were in this beautiful home for about two years then started to feel restless, so they began to pray.

Matthew 19:21 (4:15)

Jesus said to him, “If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” This was bible verse that weighed heavily on Miah and her husband as they sought the Lord in next steps when it came to ministry and calling in life.

Greater Things Ahead (5:45)

God is faithful! It’s more than okay to try new things. If a door closes, that often times means another door will open. Keep your chin up and remember whose you are.

A Willing Heart (6:30)

Miah shares a time that she felt the Lord ask if she was willing to give up everything for the sake of Him. Being completely transparent and honest, she told the Lord that she wasn’t willing to give up everything but to please help change her heart. Soon after, she noticed a transformation.

Encouraged and Inspired (8:00)

When Miah and her family hosted missionaries, there were several families that encouraged them so much. This challenged their family to consider more seriously the idea of selling their dream home to move into the city and pursue a life of ministry there.

Transitions (10:00)

If you’re a parent with children that have faced a lot of transition, don’t feel bad! There is a ton of growth that happens during these times and the Lord knows what your children need. Making sure to be intentional with taking care of your child’s heart in this time can be really helpful for the overall transition.

Dating with Purpose (11:00)

Miah and Tim dated with a purpose in mind and so did Carrie and her husband. Both couples married fairly quick! 

You are Known (14:00)

God is God even when you’re disappointed. When we have expectations and they are not met, it can be tempting to take on rejection. If you are that person taking on rejection please stop right now, this  is not who you are. You are known, seen, loved, and valuable.

On Her Knees (16:30)

When Miah went through a season of disappointment not understanding why she wasn’t getting the employment opportunities she hoped for, she had to make a choice between hopelessness and hope. Sometimes she would ask for prayer from co workers, other times she would dig deep into the word.

Be Encouraged (19:00)

If you’re feeling like a failure, we encourage you to get up and keep going. Set your gaze on Jesus because He is worthy of your trust!

His Promises (21:15)

God’s promises are always going to be true. Focus on this, even when you don’t want to!

Thanksgiving (23:30)

One way to fight off anxiety and fear is by giving thanks to the Lord. Even if it’s random things to be thankful for, that’s more than okay. None of us need to sit under anxiety, we have the power through Christ to bind up the spirit of anxiety and to walk away from it.

A Word of Encouragement (27:00)

Miah encourages listeners on the show today to pray for their spouse. May we never underestimate the power of prayer.

Slow Down (31:00)

It’s easy to get caught up in the constant busyness of life. Sometimes it’s a matter of slowing down and seeing how you can love the person in front of you.
