SMW 017: How Saying Yes to God’s Promptings Will Help You Become More || Natalie Bogle

In this interview, you’ll hear Natalie Bogle say the same phrase many times, “Heavenly Father said to do this.”  Whether it’s adopting, homeschooling, moving, starting a business or anything else, Natalie Bogle always finds herself saying “Yes” to God.


In the interview, Natalie shares how she has learned to recognize God’s voice in her life and be intentional about following Him even when she doesn’t understand the why behind the prompting. She shares some of the practical things she does to hear and follow promptings such as acting and writing impressions down.

 The result for Natalie has been an intentional relationship with God that has helped her to know her purpose and continue to progress to become who He wants her to be.


“I’ve learned that if I can just say yes it will never be easy [because] adoption was hard and continues to be hard and homeschooling was hard… and running a business is hard, but the growth that I’ve learned from all of those things has made me me and has brought me closer to who God created me to be.” – Natalie Bogle

Journal Questions

Natalie shared how she learned to hear God’s voice in her life by writing. Is writing a way you connect with God? If you’re not sure, try it out. Open up a notebook and start writing what comes to your mind. Share your thoughts, feelings and questions with God by writing them out. Notice if writing helps you connect more. If it does, keep doing it. Maybe writing is a way you connect and maybe it isn’t, but you’ll never know until you try.


Natalie said her closet has become her “sanctuary” as a place she connects with God. Where is your sanctuary? When can you carve out time to build your relationship with your Heavenly Parents?


What has God asked you to do that you haven’t said yes to yet? How can you take the first step and act on what you feel He is prompting you to do?
