A Blunt Awakening | Alita Reynolds & Ryan McGraw
In this episode, host Alita Reynolds had the privilege of interviewing Ryan McGraw, a guest with a powerful faith story. Ryan, who is currently working at NetWell, shared his journey of coming to know the Lord later in life and the impact it has had on his perspective, relationships, and career.
Ryan's Faith Journey: Ryan grew up without a strong religious background, but he always felt a calling from God. However, it took him some time to open the door and fully embrace his faith. He shared how a personal trainer who had strong faith and persistent conversations planted seeds in Ryan's heart and led him to open the door and embark on a life-changing journey with God.
The Impact of Faith: Once Ryan started his relationship with Jesus, his life took a transformative turn. He gained a deeper understanding of his priorities and the impact he wanted to have on others. Ryan's own experience of growing up in a broken family and reconnecting with his earthly father through his faith allowed him to extend forgiveness and find peace. This influenced his relationships, career choices, and how he wanted to raise his own family.
NetWell: A Community of Faith: Ryan also discussed his work at NetWell, a healthcare sharing ministry. NetWell brings together like-minded individuals who share medical expenses and support one another in times of need. Inspired by the early church's concept of caring for one another, NetWell fosters a sense of community, prayer, and holistic support for its members.
Ryan McGraw's faith journey and his work at NetWell exemplify the power of faith, family, and community. His story serves as a reminder to be intentional in our relationships, to invest in others, and to seek opportunities to support and encourage those around us. Through his experiences, Ryan demonstrates the transformative impact of faith and the importance of extending love and care to others, just as God has done for us.
