REBECCA CARRELL is the co-host of KCBI’s Morning Show. Rebecca’s personal prayer is that God would allow her to encourage others to know and grow in Christ. That He would empower her, through His Holy Spirit, to be a bold witness for Him, whether it be through “the breads,” speaking engagements, retreats, or one-on-one conversations. She prays that she can fully surrender to His will, and use it to bless the lives of many.
