Be encouraged by listening to the stories of how everyday people from all walks of life have been shaped by encounters with God.
Our guests tell their candid stories, sharing the nitty gritty details of real life.
In The Beginning
After many years filled with a love of jotting down snippets and stories in journals and diaries, Hazel has one particularly treasured book full of memories of her family as they grew up. Her children’s rule was that each story in the book had to be true and had to be funny; and so the book is aptly named The True Funny Story Book. Now forty years later, reading a story in the book transports Hazel right back to the event, still holding the power to make her laugh. Reflecting on the joy this book brought to herself and to others, The True Funny Story Book became a springboard for the podcast.
When speaking with God, Hazel answered His question: ‘What do you most enjoy doing?’ She reflected on the joy this book brought to herself and to others. Hazel began to think more about the powerful impact of stories being shared and so The True Funny Story Book became a springboard for the podcast and God’s Rollercoaster was born!
Meet Your Host
Hazel lives in Oxfordshire, England. She loves to learn about people’s stories, sharing in their journeys and fostering the belief that not only do our ups and downs make us who we are, but we should hold on to those things and be proud of our journey.
As a teenager in the early 60s, Hazel began exploring her relationship with God. This has been a journey of discovery with highs, lows, dead ends, and the unexpected. In Hazel’s own words: good for a person who is averse to anything “boring”!
Hazel has loved teaching small children whilst navigating family life with her husband and their four children. She is now blissfully watching her four grandchildren grow up.
The stories Hazel discusses with her guests are a celebration of faith adventures, which are inevitably sprinkled with thrills and spills.
