Welcome to Defiant Joy Radio. This is your friend, Carol McLeod and I am honored that you have joined me as we study the Word of God together. The refining process is often painful but the end result of this fiery process is that our lives are a pure gold demonstration of the nature of God. I hope that today’s program will help you to reflect the character and glory of God. The name of our current study is Refined – Finding Joy in the Midst of the Fire.
