Dixon, author of Waiting for God: Trusting God’s Plan and Pace (2019), has a heart for prayer, loving God, loving people, and nurturing spiritual growth through prayer and the study and application of Scripture. She shares God’s truth and love to the ends of the earth as a writer for Our Daily Bread (odb.org), a ministry devoted to making “the life-changing wisdom of the Bible understandable and accessible to all.”
