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
