“Don’t ever be afraid of what God asks you to do because it’s what he created you to do,” says Kathy Bissen, Founder and Medical Director of SoleCare for Souls. Seventeen years ago at bible study, Kathy felt compelled by God to start something, although she did not initially know what. After a night of praying, it finally hit her, and Kathy realized that she wanted to create a foot care clinic for the homeless, bringing her dream into focus.
Although an experienced nurse, Kathy was not an expert in podiatry. Driven to learn what she could and collect the necessary tools, Kathy kept meeting the right people to make her clinic a reality. By trusting that God would guide her despite her doubts, Kathy is proof that you don’t need to have all the steps in place to start pursuing your dream.
Tune into this week’s episode of Move Forward Anyway for a moving conversation on following your calling. Learn more about how Kathy founded SoleCare for Souls, the importance of listening for inspiration, and how passion can get you through the most challenging days.
