God is writing a great big story and you have a standing invitation to be a part of it. When you hear a story about God’s supernatural work in someone’s life, it builds your faith. Every week, host Meridith Foster sits down with a guest to share their chapter in God’s unfolding story – this is The Unfolding podcast.
For the first time, we’re sharing an update on a story from The Unfolding. We first told Michael and Shanaree Muzinich’s story in Page 135. They were successful physicians, chasing things they thought would bring happiness – a dream home, prestigious careers, big incomes. But their relationship was a mess. It was filled with conflict, and they were miserable. They didn’t believe in God, but one night six years ago they had an encounter with Jesus that changed everything. When they met Jesus, they surrendered everything. When we left Michael and Shanaree in August of 2022, they were preparing to move with their four children to Kenya to become medical missionaries.

When Caleb, Jordan, and Josh Ward formed the band “Consumed By Fire” in 2006, they were just 13, 16, and 21 years old. They hit the road with a heart to serve and tell people about the hope of Jesus through music. For years they played and traveled, mostly for small crowds and little pay. They were living and working by faith – a way of life they had watched their parents model in a powerful way. But it’s tough to live a life of ministry on the road and they were burning out. So despite a clear call from God, after 13 years of hard work, they made the decision to quit. That’s when God gave them a song called “First Things First” that changed everything.
One of Humberto Salgado’s favorite Bible verses is Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” There are few places as hopeless as the Diamond cell block in a maximum security prison near Mexico City. When Humberto was invited to visit, he felt God wanted him to go, but he was afraid. The men of the Diamond cell block were the worst offenders – dangerous men serving multiple life sentences. And among the worst, was a man they called “the Devil.” In the view of most people, there was no hope any of these men could be transformed, especially the Devil.

There’s no story quite like a redemption story! And the truth is, you are never too far gone for a second chance. The matriarch of the Duck Dynasty family, Kay Robertson, and her daughter-in-law, Korie, are joining nine-time Emmy winner David Sams to talk about their new movie all about redemption. It’s called “The Blind” and it’s in theaters for a limited run starting on September 28th.
