Discover the God who sees you in every situation in life

Join the free Bible study by Kathie Lee Gifford and Joanne Moody and receive free access to 6 study videos and other Bible study resources when you sign up!

How do you trust God when you don't know all of the details?

Have you been there? Have you prayed or cried out - How long, Lord?

How long will my trials last? 

How long until you answer my prayers?

When will this pass? 

When will you reveal your plans for my future?

In The God of the How and When, the first in a four-part video Bible study series companion to the 2022 bestseller The God of the Way, we'll join Kathie Lee Gifford and Rabbi Jason Sobel for a journey into God's Word and the stories of Abraham, Sarah, Moses, Joshua, and Mary - five heroes of the faith who were called to wait on God. 

By studying their stories, we'll learn how to trust that the God of the How and When will fulfill his promises, and how, we, too, can step out in faith and obedience even when the future is uncertain.   

Even when we feel invisible or forgotten, God is near.

He is El Roi, the God Who Sees.

You're invited to The God Who Sees Online Bible Study! Join Kathie Lee Gifford and Joanne Moody on a journey through the scriptures where God made his covenant with people like Hagar, Ruth, Boaz, David, and Mary of Magdala and discover how they wrestled with the same questions we do today: Does God see what's happening to me? Does he care?

It is often in the desert places that God is doing his best work. In every story in the Bible where people were exiled, in a wilderness, or in a desert, miracles happened. And this same God sees us in our despair and delivers us from it. 

The enemy of our souls would love for us to believe that God has forgotten us and abandoned us. But in every situation in life - good and bad - God is there with us. He is El Roi...the God Who Sees. 

Let's dig into His Word and study his character together. We hope you'll join us!

Maybe you’re in a season of feeling like God is deaf to your cries, blind to your circumstances, or unable to keep His promise. Maybe you’ve wondered if God is just cruel and unwilling to listen or care. In this Bible study, we’ll receive the beautiful truth that El Roi sees you, cares about you, and will provide. I’m so excited to begin this journey with you soon.

Oratorio: The God Who Sees

A note from Kathie Lee


Some years ago, I began writing a song with Grammy award-winning artist Nicole C. Mullen called “The God Who Sees,” because that’s the name Hagar attributed to the Almighty when he delivered her from the wilderness.

What Nicole and I assumed we would end up with was a three-and-a-half-minute song. But instead the Holy Spirit inspired me to add the story of Ruth, another woman in despair living many centuries after Hagar. Then he prompted me to include the story of David hiding in the Judean wilderness from King Saul. Then I had the overwhelming feeling that I was to finish it with Mary of Magdala at the cross and at the tomb of Jesus.

I had become fascinated by how even though these individuals lived between 2,000 and 4,000 years ago, their stories felt as though they could have been ripped from today’s headlines.

Hagar was a slave who was abused and a single mother. Ruth was a widowed immigrant with seemingly no future. David was an anointed king but terrified and hiding in a cave. Mary of Magdala was mentally ill, having been tormented by seven demons.

But the same God—the God Who Sees—delivered them all from their despair. And this same God, who never changes, sees us in our despair and delivers us from it.

I'm so glad we're on this journey together,
