We learn lessons in the good, the bad, and the in-between. Lisa Appelo shares about that journey of unexpected lessons on the show today. After losing her husband of 25 years and becoming a widow and single mom of seven, Lisa still finds God to be faithful and true. He has met her deepest needs and we believe He can meet yours too. 

We discuss:
  • How moments of joy can intersect affliction
  • How prayer helped her through
  • Parenting children through grief
  • Giving thanks in bad circumstances
  • Thriving in every chapter of life
  • Scriptural keys to crush our fear, walk in joy and fan our faith
  • Learning to not only live where we are but love where we are
  • Learning to not only rest and trust, but smile at the future
  • What it really means for a Christian to grieve with hope
  • How to love widows, single moms, and those who are grieving
