Katie Hornor shared her gratitude for the recognition. “Even though there was no syllabus, and even though it’s not an official, accredited degree, it’s quite humbling to have others see and acknowledge God’s great work through you in spite of and because of the hard things He’s walked you through,” she said.
Katie further highlighted the honor of witnessing God’s influence in using her story for the betterment of others’ lives.
Addressing her followers and clients, Katie Hornor delivered a message of hope and perseverance. “Hold fast to hope, my friend. That hard thing you’re in right now – I believe God has a message that matters to someone else in your story as well. Don’t quit and don’t ever give up.”
