Background Notes – “Stop Praying, I’m Miserable”

In the latest episode of Another Chance you will meet John and Ursula Frattarola.  John and I worked together in TV in Reno.  When he and Ursula left for a career in Hollywood, I told John, “I’m praying that you’ll become miserable.”  In time, it happened.  And just as I prayed,  thanks to the graciousness of God, John’s misery turned to joy–and for Ursula too!  Prepare to be inspired.

By the way, the cover photo for this episode was taken at John and Ursula’s wedding, at which I was honored to have been asked to share a message faith.

John’s congregation is located in Martinsburg, West Virginia.  You can learn more about it here…

    The first episode about Joshua was great. I can’t wait to hear the next episode about your TV friend. This podcast is inspirational and has a solid Biblical foundation. Extremely high quality sound too. Keep up the good work, Brian.
