Listen to the Happy Home Podcast on Access More or here:
Have you ever wondered…where is God when you or someone you love is suffering?
Today’s guest Ruth Schwenk understands. When her husband Patrick was diagnosed with a serious form of cancer at age 43, their world changed in an instant.
They found themselves, like the disciples in Mark 4, in a boat in the middle of a lake. Stuck. Not knowing what tomorrow would bring. Not knowing if they would be rescued.
On today’s podcast, you’ll learn how to:
- Process bad news
- Look for God working in the hardship
- Recognize the gifts in the season of suffering
- Boost your faith and your kids’ faith
These are lessons and truths that will get us through this pandemic and any other difficulties we are facing. I highly recommend Ruth and Patrick’s new book In a Boat in the Middle of a Lake.
Ruth and her husband Pat are founders of For the Family and The Better Mom. They also host the Rootlike Faith podcast. They have authored many books – Ruth is also the author of the Better Mom Devotional and Pressing Pause (co-authored with Karen Ehman). Ruth and Pat live in Michigan with their 4 kids.
I interviewed Pat earlier this year. You can hear his perspective on the Happy Home podcast too: Patrick Schwenk Crisis-Proof Faith
